Conan Exiles - Funcom, open-world survival


#361

There was a hotfix for admin password vulnerability released today.


#362

Just messaged the admin for a server patch/restart. Players not currently in game will have to wait a bit until that happens.


#363

Server bounced, was watching Lego Batman Movie


#364

Can I get info on the Discord channel? Is it specific to Conan Exiles or a more general Qt3 thing?


#365

^^^^^


#366

I picked this up based on all the commentary, and this is exactly my reaction. There’s definitely potential, but compared to other EA survival titles like The Forest, Long Dark or 7 Days to Die this feels like a tech demo. Which, fine, it’s not my thing or not my thing now, but it felt way less robust than I expected. Now granted, this has the whole PVP thing, which is enticing, but the other parts feel underdeveloped right now.

It also - at least without changing the server settings - suffers from the “I need to eat and drink every 5 minutes” problem, which is always annoying in survival games when not properly tuned


#367

Low activity on the Qt3 server at the moment, generally one to two folks on.

Pretty big patch today…

Yellow Lotus Potions sometimes have no effect. This will be fixed as quickly as possible, and in the meantime we recommend not using them.


#368

And of course people on Reddit are bitching that they can’t raid some structures.


#369

I’m still playing but in the past few days have rarely run into others on the qt3 server. Tougher to get things done solo, compared to other like games. Come join the fun!


#370

I would need serious convincing. I liked ARK for about a day and this seems terribly similar.


#371

Server patched, in Seattle so won’t be online this weekend


#372

I remember how incredibly frustrating all the dying and restarting was for you, Knightsaber and might recommend against dipping your toes in, unless you can start out when one or two others happen to be on. Games like this one are far from kind in the beginning, and it really helps to (a) not care and/or (b) have a fortress to retreat to in times of need.


#373

Came across this more or less by accident. What happens in Conan Exiles, stays in Conan Exiles.

#374

I haven’t been on for a few days but I did see you guys updated the warehouse to 2.0. Very nice! I’m kind of in that spot where there isn’t much to do at the moment but farm. More people would be fun.


#375

Try as I might, I can’t seem to find the server in the server browser. I’m thinking it’s a region thing, that the browser prioritizes servers from my own region (EU), because at most like 1% of the servers I see are listed as America.


#376

I learned the secret of steel-making by watching the original Conan movie.


#377

I haven’t been on in a couple of days. Have been on one of the official servers as the end game of politics, betrayal, and revenge are hard to do with only friendly Qt3 folks playing on the Qt3 server. This game seems like shadowbane, where you make your own fun, cause the PvE isn’t anything to write home about.


#378

"Do you want to live forever?"
And they proceeded to live forever.


#379

Yeah. Reminds me of the bumper stickers ‘what if we threw a war and nobody came?’ Well, we stop logging in, cause there’s not much to do besides build and defend your buildings against…sandstorms?

What would be interesting is to start on an official server with a group of 5 or so, with the idea that there’s going to be blood.


#380

As in, “start and official server as a small group - work together to take on all comers?” I’d be down for that.

Currently when I get on the Qt3 server now I am having fun expanding on my mountain base. It got a lot more fun when I learned I can undo building pieces mistakenly laid out by holding down E and dismantling. ;-) I’m well into Medium Armor and never seem to have enough leather. The iron is no problem, I know where to find it and I keep my forge going all the time. Hides themselves never a problem. It’s the damned requirement for bark to get the Tannery going. Takes a lot of time to amass quantities using the pickaxe (instead of regular axe) on trees. Am I missing something?

Oh, and what’s the trick to the Yog Fire Pit? I know to kill an NPC and butcher them with the jawbone thing to get the ceremonial pure flesh or whatever. That cooks. There is some medalion left behind which I cannot use? I eat the finished flesh but nothing happened.
