Okay so I've noticed recently that there seem to be actions that overide eachother. Like say for example you have a captain that's bleeding out close to... say... ANYTHING that can be dominated, Talion will prioritze trying to dominate his enemies over providing aid to his ally. I've had several of my favorite captain bleed out because of this.
It would be nice if there was a way to set situational priorities to provide a way to resolve these conflicts of interest.
For example, some items to consider for priority options:
1. Dominate foe or heal ally
2. Execute/Consume nearest grunt or target broken captain. I've found that any time I knock a captain into broken status and try to rush execute or dominate him, Talion will direct his attack to anyone except my intended target, sometimes whipping around IN THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE DIRECTION THAT I PRESS THE JOYSTICK
3. Grapple or initiate Mission. Any time there's an archer or enemy within several feet of a mission initiation point, Talion will opt to try to grapple with this foe rather than just ignore him and start the mission.
4. Dominate Worm or dominate NOT worm. I cant tell you how many times a worm has gotten away from me because I'm perched on a ledge and the toggle quick shifts to another orc, or I stealthily walk up behind a worm and for one reason or another Talion decides to rush past him and dominate another orc instead. If there's a worm in proximity, the option to prioritize dominating him would over anything else would be nice.
Another thing to consider would be the addition of ALWAYS/NEVER options.
For example, a setting to ALWAYS dominate worms would make Talion dominate a worm instead of attack or brutalize him if you press the wrong button. Or a NEVER shame allied captain option would gray out the Shame option when dominating an allied captain to prevent accidental shaming. (Of course if you intend to shame them you'd have to toggle this option off). The idea behind always/never options is to prevent mishap through accidental button presses when playing absent mindedly or inebriated ;)
