Type of issue: Bug
Server type: Local
When giving a fighter or archer thrall a new weapon, they sometimes decide that instead of using that powerful upgraded weapon I lovingly crafted for them, it would be a wiser choice to engage foes with their fists instead (this problem may occur with dancers but I have not noticed the behaviour).
I am not alone in experiencing this… https://steamcommunity.com/app/440900/discussions/0/2561864094353625446/
Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. It appears completely random, whether they’ll use their equipped weapon or even attack at all.
Despite the Issues Status List claiming that thralls not attacking enemies has been patched, it has not been fixed. This is a regular occurrence in my game. Something tells me I’m not the only one.
It is sad, a unique and brilliant feature (the thrall system) that should be a highlight of the game (and key selling point) is enfeebled by malfunctioning AI.
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:
- Equip a thrall with a weapon of your choice.
- Lead an enemy into the thrall’s proximity.
- (If the thrall attacks) Observe the thrall trying to punch the heavily armored foe in the face.
