Title: Conan Exiles [NSFW]
Post by: Xuri on January 28, 2016, 12:01:48 PM
Looks like Funcom hasn't let go of Conan just yet... they're making a "open-world-survival" game in which you play Conan....oops, I mean.... in which you play random schlobs that aren't Conan, but still live in the same universe as he does, and try to survive, and build houses. Or something. Not sure yet, there's only a cinematic trailer and very limited info so far, except "early access in summer 2016".

Quote
SURVIVE. BUILD. DOMINATE.
 
Play alone in single-player mode, or forge alliances and make enemies online on both public and private servers.
 
Will you dominate the exiled lands or will your enemies sacrifice you on the altar of their god?

Early Access on the PC coming summer 2016.
Full launch on PC and console to follow.

As a Conan fan (and as an ex-FC employee) I'll probably try this at some point.

The description

Quote
Here you must fight to survive, build and dominate.
 
Hungry, thirsty and alone, your very first battle is that against the harsh environment. Grow crops or hunt animals for food. Harvest resources to build weapons and tools. Build a shelter to survive. Ride across a vast world and explore alone, or band together with other players to build entire settlements and strongholds to withstand fierce invasions.
 
When strong enough, march forth into battle and wage war against your enemies as you fight to dominate the exiled lands. Sacrifice enemy players on the altars of the gods and shift the balance of power your way. Unleash your fury in savage, fast-paced combat and execute bloody and bone-crushing attacks that will see heads rolling and limbs flying.

sounds exactly like the Conan 2007 MMORPG. Or what it should have been. That still managed to be a great game despite all the cuts and issues so, once again, Funcom has my attention.

Do you even need a license any more to do a Conan world? Obviously you have to figure out how to deal with trademarked adaptations, but the books themselves are PD now, I think.

The last time i logged into Conan 1 or 2 people in my guild had built an entire walled town since i previously logged in, i was impressed other than it was completely lifeless, filled with huge bare rooms and empty buildings.

I liked Conan, and might as well played it longer had my guild had a larger playerbase. It had some really nice architecture and design.

FC risking it a bit joining the tail end of the open world survival games, i heard they were in trouble.

I mean, just release the mmo as a single player game, tweak it a bit so any group-only stuff can be soloed by a buff enough character. I'd buy it, I liked the game.

That should actually be the exit strategy for every mmo. Milk all the sub/rmt you can out of it and then when it starts drying up, use the last bit to mod the game for single player for a decent cashout. You'd get good buy-in from a lot of ex-players.

I'd probably buy a single player version of at least half the mmos I've played, if they came with all content intact and tweaked for single player.

I just got some PR about this!

Quote
Oslo, Norway – January 13th, 2017 – In less than three weeks, Funcom’s ambitious open-world survival sandbox game Conan Exiles launches into Early Access on PC. Starting January 31st, gamers will get to play either by themselves or with others as they strive to survive, build, and dominate the world of the greatest fantasy hero of all time. Today Funcom announced what many players have been dying to know about: the server system, the tools they get to control the server and the world around them, and the mod support system in Conan Exiles on PC.

In Conan Exiles, you have a wide variety of ways to play the game.

Host a local game where you can play alone or with a small group of friends connecting directly to your game session
Play Online on an Official Server hosted by Funcom
Play Online on an Unofficial Server hosted either by yourself or another player

Players will be able to set up their own dedicated servers using their own hardware or rent servers through Funcom’s official server partner PingPerfect (www.pingperfect.com). Players can easily find the right server to suit their preferred playstyle by using the Community Filter when they first start playing. This allows them to find a comfortable home with likeminded gamers in categories such as Hardcore, Role-Play, Casual, and so on.

If you choose to run your own server, you will have access to a powerful server control system that allows you to alter many aspects of the play experience. Here you can toggle PvP, turn off avatars, disable the sandstorm, choose what players lose when they die, control the day/night cycle, resource yield, and much more. Server admins can easily make changes to settings in-game, on the fly, and instantly see the changes, most of which does not even require a server restart. Server admins also have access to a full-featured in-game developer tool that allows them spawn any item available in the game, from weapons to building pieces and resources. They can also trigger god mode, make themselves invisible, teleport around the game world, spawn monsters and NPCs, disable hunger/thirst, and much more.

“The great thing about these games is that you can play them however you want,” says Creative Director Joel Bylos. “You can easily set up a server and play with your friends, and with our in-game controls you can simply adjust all aspects of your play experience to suit your playstyle whether that is turning off thirst, spawning a huge monster, or stop the day/night cycle. If you want to play all by yourself locally, you have access to the very same controls.”
Funcom is also excited to announce that Conan Exiles will feature full mod support on PC. This is planned to be available from the start of Early Access. Mod developers will be able to download a custom Unreal Engine editor and make all kinds of modifications to the game, from adding new monsters and items, to changing aspects of gameplay. A mod management tool which connects to the Steam Workshop allows players to easily load in the mods they want to play with. More information on the mod system and tools will be revealed soon.

For more information, check out the latest dev blog at blog.conanexiles.com. Server setup and controls for the Xbox One version will be announced later.

Conan Exiles enters Early Access on PC on January 31st and will also become available as an Xbox One Game Preview title in Spring 2017. You can learn more about Conan Exiles on www.conanexiles.com. For more information about Funcom, please visit www.funcom.com.

Yes, Schild's post is the info I was referring to.  I just thought everyone would know what I was talking about auto-magically.  Oops.  Sorry.  Some of you guys like having your own servers and stuff so I was wondering if there were any plans.  I liked Conan, too.

Post by: palmer_eldritch on January 17, 2017, 03:13:16 PM
It's a survival game with a focus on building your house or base. Max 70 players per server at a time on official servers. It has some traditional MMO elements, as there are dungeons to explore.

The devs clearly love their PvP, based on what they say on their Twitch stream, but anyone can set up a server and you can turn PvP off. I don't know if there will be any non-PvP official servers but I'd assume there will be. As you can set up your own server, you can effectively make it a single player game too.

It's designed to be easily moddable, apparently. It looks very pretty.

I wouldn't mind a server which allows PvP but won't let you destroy bases, which is apparently an option. You might los everything you're carrying but at least people can't blow up your home and steal all your replacement gear.

Yes you can run Windows on an EC2 instance (which costs more) but you would need a GPU-accelerated one and even that may not work well enough.

It's been done.  Cf.  Appstream.  Point is we'd need to pass the hat for a dedicated g2.2xlarge. Or 8x if people want.  I say dedicated only because most gpu spot instances often seem full (better for ML work).

LOL

Best case: The devs were lazy and just threw the server code into the client. They'll factor it out into separate binaries (with a separate content tool if necessary) before release.

Worst case: All server code is actually run on the client, guaranteeing a massive hack-fest.

Funcom case: All server code is actually run on the client, guaranteeing a massive hack-fest. All remote administration capabilities are also baked into the client, with hard-coded passwords that cannot be changed. Also, the client comes with built-in ransomware that triggers two weeks after launch.

Waiting to see what the actual system requirements are for running a "dedicated" server -- i.e. what you need if you aren't also playing your character on the same machine.

What does that mean exactly?  I thought they were offering their own servers you could rent to play on?
You can play on the official Funcom servers but you are stuck with whatever ruleset they have on them. You can run your own server on your own hardware by launching it through the game client. Playperfect, which is hosting the official Funcom servers, will rent you your own server if you don't have your own hardware to do this on.

Launches in a week. Probably will keep me interested at least as long as ARK did... Mind you, Early Access, so who knows how many of the "features" listed will be in the game. Early ARK was little more than pooping, and then racing to see if you would get eaten or die of exposure first.

If a bunch of you decide to give it a whirl, I will.

There's a dick slider. Check out Kotaku for a vid. I approve of nudity in games, but is there a game with a story and stuff or is just wander around and make your own fun. I built up all the settlements in FO4 but I only hung around long enough  because there was also story stuff to do.

There is a water bag and note near where you start. The water bag is key. Your not gonna go far if you don't find it. Following the road you will come to a pond/lake. Gather everything as you go down that road. Craft stone tools/weapons and armor if you can. Now at the pond/lake there will be a croc and heyenias. Advoid them at first. When you can kill that croc no problem it is time to move on. You want to find mountains. You want to climb those and find blue rocks. They will give iron ore which makes iron weapons and armor. And at that point you gotta consider what do you want to do here. As the pve you can pretty much handle without being stupid and attacking a rhino or something. Now what I have posted is way more than I have done. I got to the pond/lake and died. There is a bunch of enemies there so weapons/armor would be good. Crafting would be a good thing and skilling up crafting and thus gathering everything. I am thinking (again I have not done this) That a small shack bedroll fire would be good at this first pond/lake and just gather everything and get crafting to the point that you can make a furnace which will turn iron ore into iron bars.  I have put I am guessing 30 minutes in play time and let us say 6 hours into watching you tube lets plays to get to this point. So for what it is worth there it is. I hope it helps some one get started.

I played for about 20 minutes last night. Its a straight up copy of Ark, but less pretty, more boob. Typically annoyances - I'm running along in clothes I just hand wove from grass while walking down the road, and I stumble on a body in full hide/fur armor beside a note. All I can do is read the note.

Made it to the pond Hal mentions. Got attached by big Ape thing and baby Ape thing. Baby Ape thing actually got the killing blow in on me, but big Ape thing was in the middle of winding up for a big overhand smash. It swung over my corpse and squashed baby Ape thing to a pulp. Was kind of funny.

Ok trying to take my own advice. You will die of dehydration. Run down the road and get to the sea. Now there are enemies here and it is gonna be iffy. If you can avoid them  and gather all (and there's a lot to gather here). I am gonna say sword and board or 2 handed club are the way here. Run away from the croc. It seems like you can run away from everything if you run far enough. How much did you craft on your way to the sea? Hopefully a hatchet. But that wont bother the croc. The others if you get them 1 at a time you can do it but you gotta watch your health. I am thinking a small shack with a campfire and sleeping bag would be good here. Because you gotta do a Lotta crafting but theirs a lot of material here. Eat but rabbits are around and are stupid deer ish things are around and are not that hard. But you have to eat and drink.

The dedicated server runs either in a command prompt (useful for seeing all the debugging logs and be able to safely shut down the server with CTRL+C) or invisible with nothing except process showing up in task manager.

I've been hosting a dedicated server for myself and a cpl of friends  using an old core 2 duo on my dad's 500/500 fiber connection, and ahhh it's so delicious. Especially since I can connect over LAN and get lag-free play <3 (at least, net-lag-free)

what a pandering pile of juvenile nonsense.

So true to the source material then?

 :why_so_serious:

Honestly, was never a great Howard fan -- I always leaned more to Burroughs for my leather clad rippling sinews fix.

Now if they had set this on Barsoom, I'd be all over it.

Actually, it's looking pretty interesting right now just for the building part (and not just the penises). So I take it that like Minecraft and 7 Days to Die I can play it solo, but share out the world if I wanted to by transferring the save to a server? Or do I have to set up a server just to play at all?

Also, anybody take note how big a download it is?

Post by: Bzalthek on February 05, 2017, 11:54:39 AM
I don't understand networking shit, but it looks like it's a setup like 7 days.  There is probably other ways to go about it.

I'm taking it pretty slow.  There's crashes abound (eating out of the storage box is apparently verboten) and I'm just trying to eke out some levels to get better stuff to build.  I'm sure I could google some optimal path, but that would kinda ruin it for me I think.  If they put the time and resources into this it could be a real winner. 

But FunCom

There are camps of NPCs who you can kill or, in some cases, knock out with a club, drag back to your base with rope and put to work either as guards or craftspeople.

I also found a scary temple guarded by NPCs but couldn't get inside.

Post by: Sky on February 05, 2017, 04:55:55 PM
I've just got an iron sword and 2 pieces of medium armor, with Mitra regen on I might be able to swing that temple already. I was up there getting coal and they bum rushed me, after killing the initial rush I decided to wander in a bit more. Even solo/local server, combat is pretty awful. Kinda laggy feeling and basically stand and spam, with a little shield play to break up the monotony. The bow seems ok but is hell to aim imo. Anyway, got a ways into the temple but got freaked out because I was low on health and out of Mitra goop, and loaded with iron and coal from my mining. And there was some black pulsing stuff on the screen, though I didn't see any negative status effect pop up.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles [NSFW]
Post by: Bzalthek on February 05, 2017, 05:04:31 PM
I wanted to go ranged but every time I crashed or logged out my stack of ammo went from 86 or whatever to 1. 

So I put all my points into STR and just beat shit to death.  Combat is definitely not fun.  But at least you heal fast.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles [NSFW]
Post by: hal1 on February 05, 2017, 05:20:00 PM
So here is an other twist. And why this whole slave thing can be compelling. Fighting in caves causes corruption which lowers your hit points. The only cure is standing near a dancer. There are npc dancers but if you stand near them they fight you, they don't dance they fight you. So you knock them out (and there's a weapon that has a chance of doing this) drag them to your wheel of pain and make slaves outta them. Now you can stand near them and there will heal your corruption. Steel making requires brimstone that can be mined is caves. Also the upgrade to the first bow requires drops from spiders and of course there is a cave full of spiders. Now both brimstone and the spiders can be found outside of caves but they are few and far between. So there you go if you want steel weapons and armor (and there the best you can get) so the easy way here is to have slaves. And they have other uses as well.

So here is how my life went today in this game. I had logged out in my newly built home. A modest 3x2 affair. Just enough to hold some boxes a campfire and sleeping mat (re spawn point). So at log in the message is you were killed by hunger and i am on a road and not on the map so I have no idea where I am or which direction to go so I run down the road as all roads lead to the sea right? Well there is no sea there is a river/lake/pond but you can drink it and refill your water skin in it and it is job 1. Get to water. Thirst will kill you the quickest though hunger will kill you as well. Now the hunger thing is reasonable as I have not hunted I gathered built the house and built a box and dumped most of my inventory in the box. Well I run down the road and the road ends so I continue in that general direction and I see a green wall. I know if I so much as brush that wall I will die. That is what the bracelet is about. You can not leave the map. It is day break and the sun rises in the east. Well ma-bee. So I turn what should be north and run until I die again. Re spawn on a road (off the map) rinse and repeat but this time I find water in time. Better I find my house. So I make a stone sword ( a better weapon). I am getting hungry so I go hunting. I find one of the big turtles. Now with my weapon and newbie armor this should be OK. I will lose some health but I will be able to loot 1, 2, 3 savory meat which when cooked on a camp fire is really good food. Well a unseen second adds and I died without looting anything. Rince and repeat and I kill the second add and loot both the add and the first kill. Go back to my house build a camp fire and cook all the meat. That took about an hour and a half. And that was enough Conan for me on this day.

Broke into somebody's base yesterday to discover they had created a miniature fortress with loads of equipment and NPC servants. As we only had enough explosives to blow a small hole in their wall, we left it largely intact.

Seems like a fair assortment of wildlife some of which is very hostile. Gators are MEAN and persistent every death I have had so far was not noticing a god damn aligator.

There are weird turtle humanoid things which are pretty reasonable to kill early on. Various human camps. I assume stuff gets even crazier once you get away from the start area but seems like a fair amount of things in the world.

So I want to set up a server for a small group of friends.  I've got a spare box that should have more than enough horsepower, but what I'm wondering is if having the server running on one machine while I'm running the client/playing the game on another box (using the same connection) will make Steam shut the proceedings down for having two machines 'playing the game' simultaneously.

I haven't researched this for Conan but based on my experience with Starbound*, in theory, if you can get the server game to run in offline mode you don't need a second account.

* For Starbound I did make another account for my server but it was possible to use a single account as long as you weren't logged into the game during server version updates and stuff (i.e. only one can be logged in at a time).

I am thinking after you got your starting house by the river. This is a lot of and's but if you have upgraded as far as you can go with sandstone and fiber you need iron. Now from where you are you need to go north east ( I have restarted a number of times and this has always been true). But you want to go up. You want to climb. What you are looking for is blueish grayish rocks. Now your stone pick will give you some iron ore but an iron pick will give you 3 times the ore from the same rock. So that's job one as you need iron tools, armor and weapons. After that you want steel and the easy way there is caves in the area as you need brimstone to make steel. You will need other things as well but there not as hard as brimstone.

I don't like this kinda game. But I have all was liked fun com games. Even if I sucked at them. I liked the content. And I do like this. There is no negative about a death. you just re spawn. Depending on server rules you may need to loot your corpse or others could loot your corpse. But if you died it is not that hard to get back as you do not lose your level. And you can all ways run away. Just run far enough.

It's not the jade brigade to expect the slightest sense and grammar in a text medium, ffs. Being a disabled vet doesn't mean you can't hit the fucking enter button a couple times. On the other hand, using the vet card for that kinda does make you sound like a cunt.

Also, he's doing part writeup and part 'shit I saw on youtube'.

For an actual writeup....Yes, when I got my light armor and stone sword and leveled up my hp and str a bit, I snuck up to the area outside the temple. And yeah, I youtubed this shit, because fuck dying a hundred times to find a good iron spot in early access jankiness :) I'll spoiler it:


Make a trip up there as stripped down as possible and load up with iron. I brought back enough with maybe 4 endurance to make the armor bench, an iron pick, an iron sword and I think a medium chestpiece (can't remember if that needed iron though). You'll want the iron pick asap as it gives drastically better yield from the ironstone nodes.

Once you have the iron sword and get started on medium armor, things suck significantly less as a solo player, crocs are dealt with much more easily and you'll probably survive adds unless you pulled too hard. Still haven't tried a rhino yet, but as I said earlier, was able to make some progress into the temple. I'd bring more regen food the next time, hp regen is decent but still not fast enough to make it a fun experience and repop is an issue if you hang out with default regen.

Then I was poking around the admin menu trying to figure out how that worked and reset my xp to level 1  :oh_i_see: So I think I "cheated" myself back to where I was (losing the mitra altar recipe was big since it's 50 pts), at level 18. So probably don't dick around with the admin menu. No pun intended.

So how is this game going for me? I built my house near water. Again job 1 get to water. There are no resources around me. There are more houses here now than there were when I built my house. So, I am thinking build a second house closer to the iron drops. I need to upgrade the starter stuff before I go to iron. But I might could find a location with less competition and more resources. Anyway that's my thoughts.

 And my posts have always drawn hate from the grammar guys. And that's OK. I can always do better. And that's worth trying to do.

 Am I telling you about stuff I have seen on YouTube and haven't done myself? Absolutely, without question. But if no one else has posted it and your trying to play this game you gotta understand the progression so as I learn it I try to pass it on. Again I am just trying to help.

And this is not my kinda game. Today I played Tera for 6ish hours and Conan for ma-bee 1 hour. And that hour was a waste as the area I am in was picked over thus my thoughts on moving my base of operations.

But I have always liked fun com games. And I think this will be a good game.

Looks like they've over 320k copies so far, which is pretty impressive, and as a result Funcom has recouped all development costs.

Zones are a bit funny. Side of the river I'm on, its nothing but turtles and little imp dudes that go down to a few punches. Swim across the river and its like walking in to the middle of the San Diego Zoo.

Haven't been youtubing anything and its been amusing. Explored a cave in the newbie lands, crippling my health and stamina with corruption - to find a poem. A poem that doesn't do anything.

Found a spider on the other side of the river (forgot to bring my Setite potions with me). Turns out spiders in Conan swim. Sorta. Anyways, killed one  and finally got ichor to make a single candle for my house.
They burn forever! And give off less light than a typical birthday cake candle!

I can see some potential in the game, and the glitches are far less imposing than they were in ARK at this stage. Will be interesting to see where it goes in a few months.

I'm still trying to find iron ore.  I've only collected enough singletons to make 1/4 of the bars needed for the blacksmith's thingamajig.

I've been attempting to build little 1x1 forts to hide in as I go into the mountain.  I've started to get the hyena dance down.  With all points into strength it takes 4 shots to gank one, so if 2-3 show up I'll be hurting and need to hide in a fort.  Still have to completely avoid the exile fires as they'll just ruin my world. 

Almost got to iron land once (I think) when a rhino decided it needed to kill me.  I danced with him around some rocks and was attempting to figure out how to beat him with my rock sword when some hyenas decided to come play as well.

Also looking at my recipes I'm gonna need bark.  I've never even seen bark!  I was hoping it came from the carpenter's table, but no.  It's probably in iron lands too.

It's a frustrating game with slow advancement, but it's of a type where you still see progress, so you keep trying to overcome the challenges.  I think if they can keep the content coming on a regular basis, I'll probably still be playing it, but never on pvp servers.  I still don't see a point in pvp when offline raiding can just eliminate all of your progress.

Yes the pick on trees is the answer. You still have to harvest a lot of trees but that's what you do. I am gonna try to describe for you an easy iron solution. It is really not that hard if you have leveled the starting mat as best you can. Press m to pull up the map. look at the southern third and the eastern third of the map. Do you see a horizontal oval? Go there and when given the choice of go up or go down go up. Climb. The rocks you are looking for are Bluish/grayish and there are really strange beasts here which will drop some brimstone which you will need for steel. The spider cave and a level 3 thrall candidates cave are in this area. Both caves have brimstone deposits. So hopefully you have a dancer slave to heal the corruption before you go there.

Offline raiding can be more or less eliminated (for the time being) if you can build these two items: A) Sandstone foundation and B) stairs.

Just build your way up some mountainside to some plateau standing all by its lonely self, and then destroy one piece of stairs behind you. Until trebuchets are introduced, and/or portable ladders or whatnot, they can't get to your base at all if built like this.

Is there anything to stop people from building a bit of stuff all over the map just to 'reserve' future space or just to grief people? Especially if things you've built and removed still block someone from building where it used to be.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles [NSFW]
Post by: Bunk on February 09, 2017, 03:54:22 PM
According to Reddit, that's standard tactics right now.

Also, building near a spawn disables the spawn, so the secondary tactic is dropping a single foundation beside your enemy's best iron nodes.

Funcrom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good players or exploiters. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that I dropped a stone stair near my enemies. That's what's important! Cheap exploits please you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me at least two more builds before you patch this out and introduce other exploits in the process! And if you do not listen, then that's pretty standard for Funcrom!

But I mean, that's why any sane person has three options with this kind of thing.

1. Solo
2. f13 server
3. Pubs and exploit the shit out of everything for the lulz

I'll stick to 1 and 2, but I see 3 as valid and probably fun. Anyone expecting serious gameplay on a pub gets what they deserve. Never forget UO Atlantic.

Got it today, it's fun but it does need a lot of work...

I pulled up the map, but didn't appear on it?  Died a couple of times before I ever even ran far enough to show up on it and figure out where I was.  Then more trying to get through packs of enemies to water.

Enemies are way too tough for low-level characters to handle, and xp bogged down around level 7 when a memory leak killed the game.   i restarted back into my local game, to find my character was gone.

Tweaked the xp for run #2 to double, it's going better but that might actually be too fast.


Title: Re: Conan Exiles [NSFW]
Post by: Sky on February 09, 2017, 11:50:23 PM
I bumped up xp slightly on my local game to account for not having other players to share the building or combat. Forget if I did 1.5 or 2x, and only to a couple xp sources (combat and crafting maybe).

Haven't run into any crash bugs *knock knock*


Title: Re: Conan Exiles [NSFW]
Post by: Bzalthek on February 09, 2017, 11:56:44 PM
I apparently didn't look at the options.  This would probably explain the a level a day I've been grinding.  I hit 14 today, building the great wall of sandstone.

I'm all for trying things 'as intended', but even the devs have said they put those in there for people to use. I feel for solo I've hit a decent balance of feeling like I'm not coasting or cheating it. When I needed iron to progress, I was tough enough and had enough skills to go find it and bring it home safely (though it was dicey the first time I hit the oasis).


Title: Re: Conan Exiles [NSFW]
Post by: Bunk on February 10, 2017, 10:05:25 AM
Yeah, at 1.2 or 1.4 whatever I set, leveling still feels too slow. Was all excited that I hit ten to take Thrall Taking, only to discover I didn't know how to make Leather or Steel. I think the game needs a skill point tweak for playing solo.

I might just use the console to get enough resources for a Truncheon and Wheel of Pain, so I can at least explore those mechanics while I continue grinding. Cause right now the only XP I get is from building, and two hours of that straight barely nets a level.

Bunk, It sounds like your on the right track. You need a leather makers bench or something like that. But you are gonna need bark. Use  a pick on trees to get bark. If you you use an axe you will get lumber and branches, if you use a pick you will get lumber and bark. Now steel your gonna need brimstone. If you followed my earlier posts I will try to state it again. Pull up the map by pressing m. Look at the southern, eastern quadrant and when you get there climb. You are looking for blueish/grayish rocks. In this area are some really odd critters but they will drop brimstone. There are 2 caves in this area. Both have brimstone deposits. There bright yellow you can not miss them. Now both of these caves are crowded. Lots of mobs. Every time a mob hits you in a cave you get corruption (lowers your hit points). The cure for corruption? Hang out with a dancer. So get your wheel of pain and make some gruel while your at it (plant fiber and seeds). When you have a slave dancer have at the area.

Lets talk about the points you put into your character. Str doses nothing. Agi does so little it can be ignored. If stamina is a problem for you then grit could be useful. But really stamina is not a problem. So vitality and survival are the only useful attributes.   


Title: Re: Conan Exiles [NSFW]
Post by: Xuri on February 10, 2017, 10:38:15 PM
Strength points actually do something (1 point = 1% melee dmg bonus), but it's less effective (in PvP at least) to stack strength for extra damage than it is to stack vitality for extra health, it seems. I base this on the following Google Docs spreadsheet, compiled by some people on reddit, which contains DPS comparisons, armor info, recipes etc:

Conan Exiles Mechanics and Information Datasheet (Google Docs) (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yCqg44VK2MroUgH-yxY9w6uQCEROvR3ZaqlNbkhAqpE/htmlview?sle=true#)

Picked this up, tried it out for about an hour, refunded it due to shockingly poor performance. I can run Witcher 3 at max settings with their special hair tech going and keep a solid 60, yet Conan barely runs at an unstable 20 on minimum settings despite trying a multitude of different fixes.

Oh well, maybe another time.

I think that the game is threadbare simply because the devs thought that the PVP would be enough to hide the lack of other content. However, the lack of thought to the game just comes through in the littlest of things. The lack of any diverse fauna, the EQ1 level of NPC AI (and honestly I think EQ's was smarter) and in general the lack of colour or diversity with their art assets makes this thing seem difficult to improve on if this is their first foot forward. As much of a shit show as AO was at launch, it was clear that there was passion and enthusiasm at FunCom to make a deep immersive world. That is entirely lacking here, at near No Man's Sky levels of cynicism.

For me, the PDf of the RPG was worth the $30 alone, the other stuff was just a bonus. I quite enjoyed the comics, for instance and had never read the actual stories before.

On another note, I am really enjoying the hell out of this game but that's because I found some RP servers and roleplayers are great at making their own content. Throw in a modding community that is finally starting to do some interesting stuff and I'm good to go.

Funcom gave me a sandbox and I'm enjoying it. Sure, each patch is a game of Russian Roulette where you get some awesome fixes along with the game potentially breaking in fundamental ways until the hotfix but it's EA and it's fun.

My biggest complain is the 80 concurrent players limit per server. That's too low. It never feels like a living community, it feels like some sort of weird, long death match where it's much harder to do anything against the resident large ruling guild or even simply stay away from them. If a survival game doesn't have at least 200 players per server I don't bother.

Honestly, making yourself some pants is one of the first things you do. Lightweight clothes not only give armor, but actually increase stamina and decrease dehydration -- this is important as you start in a desert.

I was running a server out of my living room for a while, but half of the players were EQ-level masochists and weren't happy that I'd tuned it to be less soul crushing (faster crafting time and slower item decay).

After that, I found new things to do.
