Game mode: All
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: All
Votary of Skelos thralls in the volcano are inconsistent with all other thrall factions, insofar as their crafter thralls are entirely fixed-spawn named thralls (except for the two additional Alchemists in the garden). This seems very odd and is inconsistent with the rest of the thralls in the game to the point where it seems like it is a bug. Looking in admin mode, there are lvl 1-4 Votary thralls for all professions, but unlike every other crafter thrall in the game, Votaries only spawn named versions of the Blacksmith, Cook, Tanner, and Taskmaster thrall (and while they spawn non-named Alchemists, this is in addition to a fixed-spawn named Alchemist). Beyond inconsistency, this devalues the other thralls of these types from other factions, as you can have as many named alchs, smiths, cooks, tanners, and taskmasters as you want as soon as you get to the volcano.
Given that the MoAP made some other factions’ named (and even just lvl 3) crafter thralls harder to get, it seems like having guaranteed named crafters is not intended.
On a related-but-inverted-ish note, since the MoAP Vathias the Heirophant in the volcano has been varying its gender and appearance like an unnamed level 4 thrall (e.g. Relic Hunter Captains, Forgotten Tribe Cimmerian Berserkers, Darfari Ritualists, Black Hand Captains), but they have a fixed name as though they are a distinct personality. For consistency it seems like they should be renamed to “Heirophant”, “Heirophant of Skelos”, or something along those lines rather than Vathias, or it should have a fixed appearance (and in that case, not be a 100% guaranteed spawn).
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- Go to volcano
- Catch named crafter thrall immediately
- Wait for respawn
- Catch same named thrall again, every time and as many times as you want
