Spent the last 3 days leveling a thrall. Used character transfer to bring gear over from Siptah for the thrall… Gear that can not be obtained on an Exiled Lands server. Gear that was crafted using thralls that I don’t have on Exiled lands, so it’s pretty much irreplaceable without massive effort. The thrall was level 19, and ALSO a thrall from Siptah (irreplaceable without massive effort, again).
I told the thrall to stop following, so the thrall went into scouting mode inside of one of my bases. When I told it to stop following, it was still positioned very closely to my horse that I also told to stop following. The thrall appeared to be walking in place. At the time, I didn’t think anything of it. I removed my bracelet and came back within a few minutes and the thrall disappeared completely. I re-logged and waited to see if the thrall would just return home, and upon logging back in the thrall was still missing. I checked the event log and it said the thrall died… Just “died.” Not “killed.” No other explanation. So, the thrall is gone along with all of the gear.
When I closed the game to re-log, the game did not close normally, but rather crashed with a “fatal error” and bug report prompt.
I expected the thrall to either continue scouting until I went back to the base that I left it in to get it, or to return home like it always does.
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. Please be as detailed as possible; the more details, the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- Spend days farming resources, thralls, recipes, and crafting gear for the thrall on a Siptah server.
- Use the ‘once a week only’ Character Transfer to bring the items from step 1 to your Exiled Lands Official Server
- Spend more days leveling the thrall.
- Tell the thrall to “stop following”; it goes into scouting mode, like always (this is something I do multiple times per day).
- Thrall dies and disappears with all of your valuable gear and progress for no apparent reason.
- Report the bug even though you know that there probably won’t ever be a fix, and that nothing will be done to try to remedy the several days you spent building the gear and leveling the thrall which are all now for nothing.
Now for a bit of a rant:
This just happened on a server which I’m trying to rebuild my progress after our clan and every other clan on the server having been completely wiped out in a matter of days by a group of 2 people who were doing things which they weren’t supposed to be doing… Not sure if I can be any more specific than that without this thread getting locked and hidden by admins.
I run into bugs all the time in Conan, even more so on Exiled lands.
Funcom releases patches which “fix” a bunch of stuff that no one cares about, and adds a bunch of features that no one was asking for (sheathed weapons). The same patches break all kinds of things, implement changes that seem to be completely untested by any serious QA regiment, and somehow manage to roll-back fixes which previously prevented certain exploits and bugs.
I would say that official servers are poorly moderated, but that would be misleading since it implies that they are moderated at all, whatsoever. Rampant exploit use and bugs are driving this games player base to extinction.
This is probably one of the best games that I’ve ever played, but it has the worst management / developers / moderators out of any game that I’ve played, as well.
