I found issues with wait mode in the tutorial at the start of the game. Decided against using it because of how intrusive it was. Not sure if it was a bug, but it was pretty damned annoying.
Pro Tips [Non Spoilers]:
When sprinting on foot, re-clicking the sprint button (Auto-Spring or Manual) when it's almost depleted will completely refill the stamina bar. If you do it a little bit early, you can't really re-click right after to perform the stamina refill and you'll just run out of stamina.
Conan didn't like it...
Conan's entire game segment is pretty much just satire. It's meant as entertainment and not really anything else.
