The alternate mode for Axii is puppet which “mind controls” the enemy for a few seconds. However there’s an annoying bug where if you equip Delusion and Puppet at the same time, Puppet fails to complete and only stuns the enemy.
The working method would be to:
- Unslot the Delusion skill.
- Cast puppet while out of combat.
However, here are even better work arounds to make casting Puppet work:
- Sheath your sword while casting puppet (works even when delusion is on slot).
- Edit input.settings file. Source.
Press “C” on PC to sheathe your sword temporarily and hold down the cast button to cast puppet. If you are comfortable editing files then you might be inclined to edit the settings file as indicated on the source above.
