How to make mate patrol (Slough Creek)

Post by -Wolfdog- » Sat Jan 02, 2021 4:07 pm

How do I make my mate patrol the territory by himself? He only did it once at the beginning of the Pup rearing quest. Does he just do it on his own or do I have to command him? I've tried several emotes but none are giving the desired results.

Mates will head out own their own depending on their personality, but if there's no reason to (don't need food, territory is fine) or their personality is less inclined to leave on their own, they won't. There's no "please leave" command, only the whine to invite them to come with you or the soft woof to ask them to go home while out, however they do whine to invite you to go with them as well if they decide to go out to hunt or mark (which you can ignore and they will then leave to do it on their own). I find mine are most likely to head out to mark weak hexes.

I'm not sure that's possible; I noticed my mate went off patrolling more often while we were settled at the small rockpile "Saddle Meadows" den, but since using my Amethyst Mountain mate save to migrate and start a new game in Slough Creek again, he's spending more time lounging around since we settled at abandoned wolf den C and so far I've only seen that he patrolled once. Since then, he's stopped. Not sure if something changed in a recent update or if it's an area-specific behaviour... I'm starting to wonder if their patrol route is determined by the location of scent posts...? I could be wrong. ^^;

The only mate commands include whine to follow while they're nearby, double-H howl to call them when they're far away, or woof to command them to go home. Those are the only commands mentioned in-game in the quest interface.

Interesting... I haven't yet had my mate invite me to join him yet. (What a pest!)
Nothing interesting happens.
