A pet/thrall follow distance is needed asap. Not being able to set how close/far they follow really ruins pets/thralls. This is needed to prevent them from constantly getting you killed and locking you against walls (like in dungeons). Carrying a katana is not a solution. Just take that one variable (that I know exists) which controlls pet/thrall follow distance and attach it to a slider we can change. Its really VERY easy. Please. THis was needed YEARS ago.
ALSO…in the pet/thrall menu a “MOVE OUT OF THE WAY” button is needed. For when they trap you.
ALSO…Dodge roll should push other pets/thralls/npc’s just a little. It is very frustrating when trapped by everything that you can not push out a little. Currently everything around you is carved of stone. You should be just as able to push other things as other things are able to push you.
