The Thrall system allows you to capture NPCs and use them in your camp and allow them to do anything to defend your base, to kill boredom or kill monsters. If you’re wondering what it takes to become a Thrall Master, you’ll find it here!

Level requirement

You must have reached level 10 by creating resources, collecting resources, and defeating enemies. At the tenth level, you can earn three points to learn the “Thrall Taker” skills so you can create Truncheons, Fiber Binding, and the “Lesser Wheel of Pain”. You need all three to enslave your chosen target.

Who can you catch

You can capture any NPC (except named story-related) character, but all have different specializations, like Archers or Blacksmiths, that make them fit for certain jobs as soon as they are broken. In addition to normal NPCs, there are higher-tier characters that are even more effective in their area.

Capture the thralls

Once you have selected your target, you simply turn it off with a truncheon, bind it with Fiber Binding, and pull it to your Wheel of Pain. (Make sure you do not swing the truncheon too wild, as it is easy to kill a fainted enemy.) The wheel of pain works essentially like any other craft station: just add the fuel (in this case, food) and the object (Your NPC) and the wheel will slowly break the Thrall to follow your will.

Placing Thralls:

After the breaking process is complete, just add the thrall to your inventory and place it as any other object. Of course, you want to make sure that archery are able to defend your base and craftsmen near their respective workstations.
