Conan Exiles - Time To Mount Up

It is time to mount your steeds and ride across the plains of the Exiled Lands. One of the most sought-after features since Early Access launch is a reality: Mounts are now available in Conan Exiles!  You can engage in mounted combat and level up your pets and thralls, so they grow more powerful the more time you spend with them.
MOUNTS
Getting a mount works the same way as getting a regular pet. You will first have to find a foal, then bring it back to a Stable to raise it. Stables work the same as Animal Pens, but are for horses only.
Like Pets/Thralls, horses will grow stronger as they level up. Raise several different horses to find one with the stats you like.
Once your foal has grown into adult horse it can be placed in the world, like a regular Thrall/Pet. To ride into the sunset like your favorite cowboy you’ll need to equip your horse with a saddle, which can be unlocked at level 20.
Saddles will have different effects on your mount:
Cavalry Saddle – Fast acceleration, maximum speed, minimum defense, minimum maneuverability Scout Saddle – Long sprinting time, medium speed, low defense, maximum maneuverability Warhorse Saddle – Slow acceleration, minimum speed, high defense, low maneuverability No matter which saddle you choose, using a horse to get anywhere is significantly faster than running on foot.
MOUNTED COMBAT
With mounts we’re also introducing mounted combat. Shoot your enemies from afar with a bow and gallop away before they know what’s going on. Grab a sword, axe or mace and swing away from the comfort of your steed.  Equip a pike or a spear and attack your enemies by stabbing at them or equip a lance and tear through your opponent’s defenses with a mighty charge.
We think mounted combat is going to add a whole new level to Conan Exiles’ PvE and PvP gameplay and we’re excited to hear what you think.
PET/THRALL LEVELING
We’re also adding a leveling system for Pets and Thralls that can follow you. Leveling a Follower grants them increased stats and special bonus Perks.
When placing a Follower, they start at level 0 with a base set of Attributes. Faction and Tier determines growth rate and base Attributes, to make sure similar pets and thralls won’t be exactly the same. You can check your Follower’s Attributes by selecting “Info” from the radial menu.
Killing enemies when a Pet or Thrall follows you will grant them experience points. Crafting, exploration and other activities will not. Pets/thralls will only gain experience points when they are following you. Pets/Thralls will gain perks as they level up, which will further enhance their capability and grant bonuses to Attributes. The more specialized the Perk, the greater the bonus.

  4. The Conan Exiles server is a dedicated pve server using the Age of Calamitous mod. It's open to COTP members to join. PM me or reply here if you want the server information. There are 5 factions with their own perks and pets, so make sure you read the thread about Factions. The entrance to the faction hall is the portal to the Dregs Dungeon. You will get free level 10 gear when you join a faction, so I would suggest you go there as soon as possible. If you manage your stamina then you should be able to run through the npc camp in front of the portal. Otherwise you can skirt around the mountain side and then make a mad dash to the portal. You should also watch the following beginners video.

  8. FYI to those that want to give the new update a go, the server i've been hosting for CoTP members is updated and running. PM me for connection info. Disclaimer, my settings are not for the faint of heart, due to the amount of committed 7DTD players of this community that have been following this game the setting are set high. While they are not on the highest level, they are set to give members familiar to the game a challenge. If you are new to the game i suggest contacting me via steam name: Caeadwen and i will help you in any form you need.
  9. This will be a sneak peak into the game they want to make. This past several years has for the most part been making a new game engine that can handle many thousands of players / objects in a small space all at once. I think we will see a much faster development cycle for the actual game now that the engine is up and running. Now they just need alot of folks beating on their code to help find the hidden bugs. Do not expect too much as this is just the games foundation and there is much more to come in the near future.

  15. The ArcheAge class system was great. I really liked it. What I hated most about the game was the old crafting system. I spent hundreds of dollars buying supplies to craft armor and lost it all on random rolls at the end. I like the current way of how they manage gear. While crafted gear is great, you still can get good gear without it.
  16. That is just such a shame that archeage is overshadowed by archeage unchained. It had such a big potential and was let down by developers. Sad. Truely sad. Though I didn't see any movement. Players didn't oppose them, they didn't strike. Instead they grabbed the copies of AA Unchained and were happy to pay for it. Nah, the pharase fond memories regarding archeage move my guts. I spent so much money on archeage, including buying an aa account. And now all I can do is look thru my memories? That is just wrong... I hate the dev team, and if I could only make allies to make a lawsuit, I would.

  18. I'm also keeping an eye on it. I like the aesthetic, very 1600-1700 feel which is great. Will definitely be trying out a musket/tomahawk-knife combo, cue the Last of the Mohicans soundtrack.

  21. Hello COTP! I hope you are all safe and health. I did a search for Valorant but nothing came up. Is there a forum location for FPS and other of those games for us members to gather and make the connections? Thanks!
  22. Hi scottolson1968, welcome back to the community. 🙂

  25. Greetings all, Once upon a millennia ago, CotP had an active presence on the DDO realm of Cannith and it was the first gaming Guild that I ever joined. For the past 6 years or so, I've been the lone active CotP player remaining on Cannith as everyone else wandered over to greener pastures. Despite joining other guilds and playing with them, I have maintained my caretaker role over the CotP presence on Cannith hoping that some day, some of you would come back and join me. Today should be that day! As part of many changes that have happened on the DDO game worlds, the new development team (Standing Stone Games) has decided to open the game to new and returning players. DDO has been a Free to Play game since 2009, but that was limited by the fact that only a fraction of the content was truly available for free. As part of their efforts to get people to try the new incarnation of the game (and it is very, very different than it was even 3 years ago), the developers are making ALL OLD QUESTS, RAIDS, and ADVENTURE PACKS free! You have until August 31st to claim permanent access to this content if you are willing to come back and give it another shot. For information on how to claim your content, look here: https://www.ddo.com/en/news/free-questing-coupon-and-vip-update-–-thank-you-standing-stone-games House Phoenix is still alive and I've been slowly leveling the guild and adding to our guild ship. If you would like an invite to the guild, let me know here with the character name that you'd like added or send Rugare a message in game. Hoping to see you all soon! Rugar
