Family Shared Steam accounts was ‘discouraged’ a while back by Funcom, but it is still accessible via private and solo platforms (hence why this is posted here and not as a possible BUG).
An ‘interesting’ possible glitch for anyone that does the shared steam family account, even if it is to briefly keep ankle-biters (of all ages) quiet whilst ‘the adults are talking’. I’d suggest players just be careful as it appears it may cause conflicts that could lead to the losing all your pets and thrall followers (not crafters) [Funcom peeps can comment if this rings a bell]
I login in daily on all my servers. All thralls/pets have tons of food. In spite of that,
I saw today that all placed followers (thralls/pets) have disappeared/wandered off/died. I have none now. This only affected already placed thralls/pets.
This happily has not affected any other players on the server to my knowledge so it’s not likely a mod update or the like.
I would be interested to hear if anyone else has ever experienced magical desertions like this, and also have shared Steam Family active?
