This is a bug I reported a few months ago, however - I now have a video covering one major aspect of it.
1: Go to New Asagarath (video shows exact map location)
2: When running away from Thralls - once they are out of sight, even slightly with a hill blocking the view, they disappear.
3: They literally are gone - and replaced by another thrall
note: If you look at the ground, you will see dead bodies that still have not gone away - yet those that chase you, and are not killed, simply vanish.
- In the video you will see me:
- run up and attack a thrall outside the gate
- run away - and watch them disappear
- return to see a new thrall
- (Still see dead bodies on the ground from previous kills)
- The last fight, I kinda circle around, and have three thralls chasing me… (all disappear)
What was NOT shown in the video is part two to the glitch (just didn’t think about testing it, as this is an old glitch) - but if you go slower, they should be able to follow… (some, one may still walk away or completely disappear)
Having said that, if you do kill one outside that range (i.e you slow down and they follow you past where you see me run to) they will disappear on death before you can harvest them. (usually slipping into the ground)
Also, if you go down the plateau, away from New Asagarth - there is a large Stag you can kill for its meat, or trophy head… two spots you can farm him… BUT, you can have him chase you up the plateau, across it - he wont go down the other side - however if you do go down by the water and back up… he wont disappear, but will wait for you.
to be clearer about the above, I actually crossed back over the plateau - after being followed by the STag, didn’t see him respawn, came back, and he was just wondering around waiting for me by the edge where my house was. lol!
One other bit that makes this one area odd…
- In the city proper (New Asagarath) the thralls will still be there if you leave and come back.
i.e You kill some thralls, yes they will respawn if you leave (even briefly climbing over the fence), but the named thrall will still be there - not so with the location shown in video.
This issue affects both towers on this plateau (not including the middle tower where the boars are)
