A clear and concise description of what the bug is.
This post requires pre-reading here:
I’ve had four seemingly random thrall deaths in a month and I’ve finally figured out what’s going on.
So I cleared the beach, ramp, and knocked out beastmaster I chucked some chains around his legs and dragged him down the beach.
I’m fully aware the NPC stands on the beach while I swim so I went to an area with only one wandering NPC killed it then swam under the pirate ship to join up with a clanmate who was taking a more direct route back.
Just before we reached the beach there’s a message saying thrall died while following you.
Then there was the sound of a face palm…
I swam back to the area on the beach where I left the thrall and nobody no NPCs no nothing.
Finally done with losing thralls me and my clanmate decided to free the beastmaster and explore the area to find the dead thrall.
Finally located him at the top of the pirate ship surrounded by hostile NPCs because these NPCs are immortal if they cant path to a player he stood no chance at all.
At some point, the game has teleported him up into the pirate ship to get him closer to me leaving him open to attack while being unable to defend himself.
I’ve also had this issue while running under the black galleon where the NPC has teleported vertically and died.
The teleportation needs looking at, also maybe some swimming lessons for the thrall so he can come with me?
Shout out to DexSorn who seems to be having similar issues
A clear and concise description of what you expected to happen.
NPC thrall would swim behind you and not need to teleport great distances.
Thrall would only teleport to a floor tile the player has already touched to prevent crazy vertical placement.
