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.

Slowed but not stopped. 
We are now entering the new 90 day development period.  So we expect to see giants in all their glory or at least an early version.  Also, they plan on starting up a persistent world on a 24/3 [weekends] server run by their overlord program.  Some things we may also see during this period is are the Spirit mages and dragons as they start to get flushed out.

Upper and Middle Class Tenents wanted

Recommended Posts

Those of you who wish to own Large and/or Medium homes in the city, please let me know and I'll get you set up. If I'm not on and there is a militia available to grant rights, please adhere to the below city plan.

For those of us who may not be actively playing SWG-Emu but willing to set up a house for our character(s) if more population is needed... Any idea on the costs / requirements for setting up these houses?

Negligible, as long as you put Khaen and Throne on your admin list, it will get paid. You'll need someone in the militia around to set it up. Best way is simply to ask in mumble.

How many tenants do we have now? I don't want to add more than we have to since we have to pay for the upkeep.

 

How many tenants are needed for a tier 5 city?

I logged on a couple times over the last few nights, but I didn't catch you guys online. Unfortunately I just don't think SWGEMU is going to work for me... I can't make heads or tails of it - Throne wasn't kidding about that learning curve. :) I created an Artisan, but I couldn't even figure out how to complete the first mission (despite a couple of hours running around Mos Espa). I then created a Marksman who got completely demolished by every mob I saw. I'm sure there is something I'm missing, but I just don't think this one is something I would enjoy.

 

Shoot me a PM if you decide you do still want more tenants for the city.

If you picked up artisian without doing any research then you will naturally have a very hard time. The same goes for grabbing a gun and blasting stuff without understanding the tactics associated with the different classes or character builds. SWG is not a cookie cutter game. It is a sand boxed game in which players control the market and social aspects of the game.

 

What other game besides UO, allows players to create villages, cities and trade empires where they choose? This game is not easy mode like most games nowdays. It requires work and dedication. It took us 4 weeks just to get to the point where our city is livable. Most of us have been working on getting our characters to the point were they are self sufficient. Our next goal is to create a thriving city in which we will have Doctors, Entertainers and vendors on hand. Later, we plan to drop an Imperial Base and participate in faction wars across the server.

 

In any case, I understand the game isn't for everyone. It can be very frustrating for new players. The first thing I tell new members, is to change the default game controls to the EQ mmorg setting. The SWG controls are clunky to say the least. Most people use the EQ setting which they are used to in other games.

 

The second thing I tell new players is to create a melee character. Ya, I know it doesn't have that Star Warsy feel without the blasters, but it is easier to learn the game with a melee character. Personally, I like the melee characters because they have that Jedi feel.

 

The third bit of advice is to hook up with guild mates to help you with the game. There is a learning curve to the game and helpful guildmates make it easier.

We need 85 for a Metropolis....which I don't think we should go for on Basilisk....we should wait for Suncrusher to actively go for that.....however, we will not turn away new and existing members who want to be an active part of the chapter.
