Herbalist not healing damaged hearthlings.
There are currently four possible problems which stop the herbalist from efficiently healing hearthlings. They are the following:
Hearthlings (especially footmen) don’t go to bed even when down to a quarter health until they are naturally tired. With two attacks a day it can be frustrating if they could have survived if they had given the herbalist a chance to do its job after the first. (I’ve only lost one foot man after 28 days)
Hearthlings can heal extremely quickly even when they don’t have high willpower making the herbalist completely redundant for the vast majority of attacks. Many of my footmen have healed themselves while just walking back to the settlement.
Herbalist walks very slowly while carrying potions and healing items. Again giving even more time for nature to work (I have seen herbalist just make it to the edge of a bed the moment that the patient recovered naturally).
Footmen or hurt hearthlings pick randomly which bed to go to for healing. Meaning that your lovely hospital (cleverly positioned next to the entrance of the settlement) with all your potions and beds in never gets used and they instead will walk to another random bed on the other side of the settlement.
Or they just sleep on the ground next to the bed…
Steps to reproduce:
- Obsessively watch the herbalist in anticipation of seeing him heal one of you hearthlings!
- Realise the he very rarely does…
