De_Gatherer Posted November 27, 2022 Share Posted November 27, 2022 I think most of us would agree that prior to the rework, Maxwell's shadow servants were in a good place. One could choose the servants as they pleased: choppers, miners or shovelers. They followed the player everywhere and were indefinite for as long as the player chose them to be. Shadow duelists on the other hand were always lackluster but I believe they’re in a good place after the update and should be left alone. All this brings me to my point, shadow servants should be reverted to follow the player indefinitely, similarly to pre-rework Maxwell, and the option to choose which type of workers we want should return. Something like adding additional icons to the servant wheel to select from. A suggestion to balance out these changes would be to simply require more durability from the codex when spawning servants. Maxwell was always a gathering type of character and these suggestions could return Maxwell to his original state while maintaining the improvements brought on with the rework. Currently, when servants are summoned, the player is tethered to a small set location which discourages a proactive play style. Should the player move too far away from this circle the shadows despawn, which becomes bothersome when you have to continuously re-summon your shadow servants to finish chopping a patch of trees or when mining boulders. I understand that servants have been made stronger in the sense that they now pick stuff up for you, but my issue with it is that it's only just a bit faster than picking stuff up yourself. Now don’t get me wrong, I like that servants pick stuff up, it’s great, but is it really worth sacrificing shadow servants being permanent and following the player everywhere for it? I’d much rather have them cost more and be permanent, at least until the player decides to get rid of them, rather than have to summon them frequently to complete tasks. What do you guys think? And while we’re at it, would it be possible to get minions that till soil for you or is that too much to ask for? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
