I’ve been getting an error message when trying to swap thrall weapons in combat. Something along the lines of ‘That item cannot be moved’. It doesn’t always give an error message, most of the time it doesn’t but the weapon won’t change nor can the equipped weapon simply be removed from the thrall. Prior to 2.4 I could swap weapons in combat while rarely having an issue. Now it seems that if a thrall is in the middle of an animation (attacking, blocking, etc.) then the weapon won’t swap and can’t be removed. It also won’t queue up to change when the animation is complete and necessitates spamming move commands to try to disengage the thrall in order to perform a weapon swap or trying to time it between thrall attacks. I’ve experienced it trying to swap a truncheon to a thrall, trying to swap a 2h to a thrall that was having problems hitting a large mob with a small 1h melee weapon, and I’ve had a thrall get stuck in the blocking stance and could not remove the shield. For the last one the only thing I could do was kill the mobs I was engaged with to break the thrall out of blocking stance when dropping combat. Considering the nature of animation locking that happened in 2.4 I was curious whether this was intended or a bug.
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- The easiest way to verify this is happening is to spawn a bunch of archers while having a thrall using a shield.
- Agro them to the thrall.
- Wait for the thrall to get stuck in the block stance and try to remove the shield while it’s standing there blocking.
- Alternatively send a thrall into combat and try to remove the weapon while mid animation.
