I think vertical elevators may max out somewhere around 10-15 foundations tall - I think I have one out my back door that's 14 foundations.

The map room is actually not that bad once you are able to visit the volcano. The rock demons (not the rocknoses but the other ones) in the volcano drop demon blood (use a pick) in great quantities - I could get 100 by killing about 10 of them. Grab the named alchemist Sayd Secretkeeper in the volcano garden and put him in an improved firebowl cauldron - he cuts down on the amount of some ingredients by a good deal. Swim underneath the pirate ships in Bucaneer's Bay to get gold and silver coins and bars from chests. The rest of the stuff is much easier to get.

For the elevator - on the north side of my mountain warehouse I have an vertical elevator that's around 35 or so foundations tall and takes 1:15 to ride each way. Goes from the mountain on the western side of Thugra's stand down to the river north of the mountain. It did stall out when setting it up around the 20 foundations tall mark where it stopped, but hitting the switch to force it to go back down worked and it's worked fine since.

Think I'm going to try placing one on top of the tower near the newbie river...wonder if that would work.

And it seems that ~35-37 is the tallest an elevator will go. I tried on the sky tower thingie, timing the ride it's at 1:15 again and it takes about 2s per foundation to go up or down in an elevator. When I tried at higher levels I received an error along the lines of 'unable to find landing point' even when I built a platform I lined up for the landing point.

I staked a claim for "Castle Dongington" up north today. All there is right now is a bonfire, a wooden box, and a sign.

It is due West of Passage Exit by the lake shore. It is just at the edge of where everything is snow covered. I won't be starting construction anytime soon. I spent most of today catching thralls for use when I get the place setup.

My compound is in E14.  Just West of the Lake, down South from the Wardtowers.  I dwell among the hill people.  Just need to figure out how to craft meth.

I nabbed several tier 1 and tier 2 taskmasters in Sepemeru today while trying to catch some named thralls. There is a box next to one of the double wheels on the NE side of the city that has like 3-4 Journeymen in it if someone is putting in a wheel in a new location and needs a little boost in effectiveness.

So they took the grid off conanexilesmap.com so it is basically the same as the other one with icons and shit.

Unless that wasn't the map with the grid?

Yep. Instead of a grid there is now a sort of lat/long readout in the lower left of the screen.

I made a path of torches on the quickest path between New Asgarth and Dongus Manor for thralling. I got totally turned around in the dark trying to drag a thrall back in the dead of night/thunderstorm and ended up back on the north side with the mammoths.

Satael's Jungle Meadhouse is now open next to the NW jungle obelisk.  why so serious?

edit: map room added for extra convenience.

Map room now available at Trad'r Sam's!

Next highway route needs to go between my place and Satael's Jungle Meadhouse so we can have a bar crawl before schild's Bureau expands out of the swamp and consumes us all like a black ice version of the goddamn Zerg Creep.

Also, the map with the grid is https://conanexiles.ginfo.gg/

Castle Dongington is a at K13 on top of cliff where the shore turns a corner. Still under construction but should have the building envelope done tonight. Map room in the center of the north side.

Will have a wheel soon for grabbing Thralls from the camps on the lake.

Discovered Satael's Desert Hideaway just now.  That was a nice surprise.   DRILLING AND MANLINESS

I laid a path of blue torches from the meadhouse to the main road (about halfway between Trad'r Sam's and the Bureau).  Need to go back and add signs.  It's not a very pleasant run, what with all the swamp spiders, but it is pretty short as long as you go through the swamp instead of through the trees (which is even worse due to the panthers).

My house is actually a house now. Still need to replace some foundation place holders and roof it.  Due east of the Dong Manor I believe. Anyhow, I'm right by the landmarks "Trapper's Cabin" and "The Breach", in the north before you hit snow.

I've got most amenities, but not a ton of thralls. Tier 4 for blacksmith and armorer if you need stuff fixed and you're in the area. And a treb if you need to fire one.

Castle Dongington is effectively done.

I still have some internal sprucing up to do but all the major pieces are in place. Will be adding additional crafting stations in the courtyard since there is nothing out there at the moment.

This is a great looking complex. I'm really liking the red lacquered look of the Khitian tiles too.

Unfortunately my game crashed when opening one your interior doors and now I have to take off to do some chores, so please excuse the heavily armored barbarian crashed out on your floor. I'll collect him when I log on again later..

Yeah, I have not been to Rasix's Khitian lake house.

Castle Dongington is straddling cliffs and has platforms out in the water north of the dam.

So I have placed a dancer next to the wheel at Mounds of the Dead and in the Volcano. Figured most people goin' a thrallin' will be porting in by obelisk and it only takes a couple seconds to get rid of the corruption there.

I need to work on the northern roads and get the signs better organized. But I want to do something better up there than the sandstone blocks, but something maybe not as intense as Schild's Black Ice in the jungle look...

If you're looking for things to craft, I suggest double stacks of foundation blocks with wall torches on the side, braziers on top, and optional wall-mounted signs under the torches (rather than separate standing signs).

Please don't build roads to my place (not that there is really any good road locations. I have some good iron/stone/wood that is very convenient.

Plus, no one wants to visit that area anyway.

Really? I'll respect that, but why?  I was thinking about doing some roads and bridges heading up to the volcano.

That sounds interesting, if elaborate and materials intense. I may compromise a bit and go with the brazier on top look. Can you put wall-mounted signs on foundations? And they seem a bit small for road signs anyway.

That tower is going to disappear once the new DLC is released and my new compound will be at the Wreck of the Martyr island offering all the basic necessities for anyone wanting to farm the demon spider.

So one of the more WTF nights in a while, comboing personal bad decisions with game bugs...

Decide to go out resource farming ahead of my next big project, so I equip one of those authentic looking backpacks to increase carry capacity. I then managed to get it caught up in the mechanism of one of my elevators leading to perhaps my most ignoble, if perfectly reasonable, death in game.

So I respawn near my elephant trap and decide to go ahead and farm a pachyderm, only to discover after some minutes of prodding that I have that bug you get on respawning sometimes where you can't actually do damage to anything. Yay. Try to reset it by running out of physics range of the elephant, then lag out on returning (weather is bad here right now, giving lots of lag spikes) and go over the cliff. Decide to respawn back in my bed, move before everything is loaded and get stuck between my bed and the wall.

Oh and all my weapons are now bugged. I have two duped shields, neither of which will equip, and my sword goes back to inventory whenever I enter combat.

To the fair, those last issues cleared on relogging.

Not mad, just sharing.

 Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Game is fucked up. Funcom doesn't know how to fix it and appears to be on vacation anyway.

We all know how this story ends: they fix it roughly when they have twenty-five customers left.

I went ahead and did this to blaze a trail from the Dagon obelisk to my base.  Check it out, it's a fun little hike.   DRILLING AND MANLINESS
