Thralls Despawn when on follow

Game mode: [Online]
Problem: [Bug]
Region: [Universal bug, surely]

When walking up to one of your thralls and holding interact (square) then selecting ‘Follow’, if you walk off of your building roof/a ceiling/any structure elevated, while the thrall is following you, he will despawn and on the event log it will say he was destroyed by nothing.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Place Thrall on a ceiling roof
  2. Put thrall on follow
  3. Walk off the roof so you land on the ground below, any height
  4. Thrall will disappear/despawn/be destroyed.

I’m sorry this happened to you. They most times get suicidal unless you are descending a foundation wall, so you must move them manually to either a foundation block or solid earth, then set them to follow. Same goes for player-made structures, I don’t climb with thralls for now. I have reported this as a bug/issue too.

It was not like this in prior patches, and it likely has to do with how they must path to get over terrain and other items. I’ll go even further to hazard an educated guess that it must be this way for now, or we won’t be able to drag them into our homes. Since it was not like this before, history has shown it’s going to be patched.
