Thrall controls are poorly implemented.
I do not want a wheel (although I understand why they implemented it for cross platform). However, it doesn’t work half the time. The wheel functions poorly in the heat of combat; you end up opening up the thrall inventory or simply cannot get close enough due to movement or dealing with your own adversary.
I would like a separate row of key binds for thrall commands similar to what you see in other games.
Follow, Stay, Guard (aggressive stay), Attack, Move to; and then stances. Passive, Assist, Aggressive.
WoW and Ark offer two different alternatives that both work well and make pets seem like an extension of the character and it’s training.
Pets in Conan often create chaos rather than alleviate it because of the poor implementation. You should not have to run half a city mile just to get them to break combat.
Combine with their follow distance being ridiculously short; they end up on top of you blocking your movement when they do finally follow.
