Opened up the shiny new Beta to test out the Northern Alliance, and noticed that if two Hearthlings are supposed to have a conversation, and one of them is on top of a building during construction, they will stop and simply stare at each other at a very long distance. Eventually the ‘conversation’ will stop and they’ll go on to the next task.
Steps to reproduce:
- Begin construction on a Northern Alliance building template (the roof seems the important part)
- Look for Hearthlings standing still on top of the building
- Check status
Hearthlings having a conversation actually having a conversation with each other.

This appears to happen when one Hearthling is on the roof and the other is on the ground at a distance; I’ve observed two roof-based Hearthlings having a normal conversation. Does not appear to actually break the game in any way, it’s just… creepy.
