REASON: thralls are still incredibly stupid and will suicide into lava or off elevators, often without the player noticing in time for the ridiculous 12 minute thrall body decay timer to still be active!!! Not only do you lose loot, to an old issue still needing a fix, but NOW YOU ALSO LOSE LEVELS!!!
Having to level a thrall is a bad idea right now. They should have fixed thrall intelligence first.
Thralls should automatically stop following, or become immune to lava, when near lava while following a player. The thrall should ONLY die from lava, if the player dies from lava. No thrall should be stupid enough to walk headfirst into lava, it’s a dumb concept, now made worse considering the thrall may be level 20. I speak from experience, I JUST NOW lost a leveled up Eri the ravager while rescuing a clan mate who died while Eri was following him. Eri was nowhere near lava, easily killing the npcs that took my overencumbered friend. I got his loot, but was on horse so could not tell Eri to follow. 20 minutes later I see him, a full set of GOD BREAKER and an act of voilence all despawned with no way to retrieve. I take it he followed a player who ran by while I was waiting for him to return. At least give thralls a “RETURN HOME NOW” command! And to be smart, thralls should NATURALLY avoid lava! COME ON DEVELOPERS is this supposed to be a realistic game or not?
Thralls should not teleport to the top of an elevator, only to fall off and die. This is beyond insane, and how I the very next day witnessed ANOTHER leveled up Eri, with Godbreaker, and this time a CROM SWORD, ALL DECAY because I went to the bathroom while riding the elevator up and didn’t realize idiot Eri wanted to suicide off the damn thing. WTF?
Players should be punished for their mistakes, NOT for the developers mistakes! Do you know how hard it is to farm a crom sword or 2 god breaker sets???
Make thralls smarter, before you edit anything else about thralls (which you have already done!)
