I can definitely see the uses of him, I just hate when he’s being useful and then immediately decides to help kill me. :)
I finally get away from the monster to heal and he’s got aggro. His plan? Run to me while I try to heal, dragging the monster with him, who then hits me and kills me or makes me dive out of the way cancelling my heal.
He’s gotten a little better now that he doesn’t have the heal. I suspect something in his AI decides to run to try to heal you even if he can’t, which results in him trying to kill me repeatedly. I do sort of miss the extra healing, since I keep forgetting to restock and then have to walk back to camp to do it, but at least now he doesn’t bring angry dragons at me very often.
