Thralls decay is broken, and has been ever since it was changed from the first concept(which worked why change it?)

**Game mode:Single-player

**Type of issue: Bug | Misc

Server type: PvE
**Region: USA West

Thralls eat everything all the time (like an entire stack, to one thrall, and they’ll keep consuming untill all is consumed! They’ll eat infinitely). The decay setting has NO effect on this (it happens when decay is off and also when it’s on). pets and thralls are now all gods of gluttony…

This started when pet and thrall decay system was changed.

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:

  1. Give thrall/pet as much food(or anything they can possibly consume) as they can hold

  2. You cant take the food back(it’s already gone! even though you can see it, because they are THAT fast). EXIT THE INVENTORY AT THIS POINT

  3. Open their inventory(tuh-dah!)

  4. Repeat as many times as you desire, because it doesnt EVER end. You can even turn the setting off and experience the same exact results! wow!

I wrote this on steam:

with thrall expiration on or off, they eat entire stacks of food instantly and will eat infinitely more stacks for ever!!!

I cant store food on bearers because of this, assuming I wanted the to carry my food for me. I carry my own food anyway, but that’s an issue still.

This only started after they changed thrall hunger, I miss the old hunger system.
The old hunger system made sense, it was simple, and it worked perfectly!
You could set it so that starving would weaken or even kill the thrall, but now this new system is in place.

This new system doesnt work, at all.

Does anyone else have this issue?

This is for Conan Exiles.

Not sure how to delete my post…

Anyway, this is what’s going on(thanks Ignasis):

Thralls will consume all the food in their inventory for a damage buff, and decay is a seperate system from feeding thralls now. This is why you can feed thralls all the time. Decay is reset by logging in, as far as this post goes:

"Hey there,

There’s two things being discussed in this thread.
One is the feeding system, which as you all know, was disabled in a past patch. With this change, there was a change also to how food affects thralls and pets. If you store any amount of food in a thrall/pet inventory, it will be immediately consumed for a temporary damage buff.
The other one is thrall decay: The hunger system was substituted by a decay system similar to the one tied to buildings and is timer based with no other way to affect it other than logging into the game to reset it."

So, I’m sorry for mistaking this as a bug.

maybe in the future this can be a little more self-explained ingame? that would be cool, and thrall stats too. I’d like to know their damage output and damage mitigation one day

Hey @TheVlad

Welcome to our community.
We’ve already answered your thread in the Steam forums as you noted above. Contrary to what it’s said directly above, we do care but our current plan is to leave this system as it is until we release some major changes to the thrall/pet system soon.
Thanks for your feedback.


Any chance you can enlighten us on what those changes will be? And when “soon” is projected to be? Very curious!

@Bodin my guess is when the mounts come out. Or right before since mounts are related to thralls and pets.
