Followers Update

Post by Lord Arogandor on Thu Apr 12, 2012 1:16 pm

I have made some updates concerning the Followers. Followers are non-playing characters who join your cause for a certain period of time. Some followers just join you, other followers can be hired at certain locations. Most followers could be hired at the town gate. And exactly there most of the changes can be found.

The changes
- All followers available are shown at the town gate. There is no longer a random chance which made the follower appear or not.
- You hire the follower for a period of time that you choose yourself. The amount you have to pay depends on that period.
- When you enter a town the followers will stay with you. They no longer leave as soon you enter any town.
- If you would die, your hired followers still will leave your retinue straight away!
- The tax a town can levy on hiring followers is now added on your tax tab and no longer paid straight to the town.
- During the Daily Reset an event will be shown with your hired followers and the time they will remain in your retinue.

Because the followers have effects all over the game there is a chance for bugs! Please keep an eye for bugs and report them straight to me. The faster we fix it the better for all! Remember your bug-hunt-efforts will be rewarded!
If you have any suggestions or ideas to further improve, please contact me! We always like a fresh idea or a positive criticism.

The prices for hiring Followers are the town gate are changed now.

If you find them to low or to high, feel free to let me know. They can easily be adjusted. Don't forget to motivate your opinion of course Smile

I think there should be some slight exponential cost to hiring followers for multiple days, it doesn't seem right that the orcish drummer could be hired for 100 days with 10 silver.

Btw I think you should nerf the brute mercenary, he seems overpowered for the low price he's available for. (it was low before the update too)

Hi Aro,

those of us that had followers already had them all leave today.

I'm out fishing and my buddies just left! I even lost my free company soldier!

Nothing to worry about, was going to head back to town anyway! Just thought, what a bunch of jerks! Razz

- The follower Chesterfield the Fisherman has left your retinue!
- The follower Brute Mercenary has left your retinue!
- The follower Screaming Pig has left your retinue!

Idk, I disagree; although it would be cool if the followers could get injured in the fight and be unable to continue (until the next fight).

Brute merc is OP against level 5 and lower monsters, but he is of very little help against level 12 basilisk etc..

This has already been included.

The combat followers seems not to work yet, so I'll start fixing that first.

True....didn't thought about that... Lets hope there aren't to many outside with followers ^^
