Pets AND thralls will need to be fed!
Thralls are almost completely useless, certainly for defence. Why would they make them even more of a pain to keep. I actually haven’t logged onto a server for a couple of weeks and the way things are going, I can’t see me ever doing so again. IMO Funcom have ruined what could have been a great game. For Pete’s sake Funcom (no, I don’t know who Pete is either) JUST FIX THE DAMN BUGS!
There was a patch on the 13th that included a number of fixes for thralls. I am sure there will be more.
