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.

Camelot Unchained Newsletter #67

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.

Amazon's MMO New World Release Date.

Amazon has delayed its upcoming open-world MMO New World from August 25th to an undefined spring 2021 date.  It sounds like Amazon may be taking a more cautious approach to game development after early feedback from testers that the games weren’t quite what they hoped.
The New World team wants to add “more features and content before we share it with a wider audience,” including “plenty of middle and endgame experiences,” studio director Rich Lawrence said in a blog post that was also shared on Twitter. “We want our players to feel completely immersed in the game, and know that our studio stands for quality and lasting gameplay you can trust — and that means added time to get things where we want them before we fully release.”
Does New World require a subscription?
No, there will not be a subscription fee to play New World. You only need to make a one-time purchase—it's $40 for the standard edition—though there may be expansions or other things to spend money on in the future.
How to play in Beta
If you signed up for the beta on or before July 9th, already pre-ordered the game, or are a current alpha tester “in good standing,” you’ll be able to participate in a “first-hand look at New World” beginning on the game’s previously scheduled launch date, August 25th, according to an FAQ on the New World website.
If you get access to that first look, you’ll be able to play the game “in its current state” and for “a limited period of time,” according to Lawrence.

ESO Status Check

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am just checking on the status of the chapter.  

 

Are people still playing this game?

 

Are people playing the game in the CotP chapter?

 

Is the chapter active, casual (1 or more people playing periodically)  or dead?

little quiet on there... but 10-12 in the last ten days looks like.

I'm more on the EU server when I'm on, so ignore me :P

There are a few of us still pretty active and I notice quite a few people on at different times.

I've not logged in for quite some time. The game is still thriving based on what I've been able to see and read up on, but our chapter is running ungoverned and well.

I just started playing, though haven't caught up with any guildies yet.  Still only around level 6... :)

I started playing during the Free to Play and now play it regularly. I am only on the Xbox One version currently but will change that within the next few weeks.

I just reinstalled and started playing again as well (PC) and Bandoid just got the game as well. I tend to jump around games a lot, though.

I mess around with it still, and my dudes are still in the guild. 
I don't have the authority to do so, but I would call this game casual, if it was up to me.

Btw, would it be possible to have guild member ranks increased? I'm just a member now, but since the guild is casual, would it be OK to be bumped up to officer to promote people to member and to have access to the bank (at the very least I'd like to clear out all the white quality gear that crafters have dumped into the guild bank).

@ Tarynn   hit me up in mumble when you get on, will run around and do things. 
@ Blue    if we're more or less ungoverned like Liquid Wolf said, I don't see why not. I'll look at who is officer and what not when Maintenance is over. 

 

Just an fyi for folks, all my older toons are Ebonheart peeps. Not opposed to starting over though if a few folks want to start playing together.

I'll get on and see if I can get everything setup. Later tonight at 8PM central might be best.

Excellent - be good to run with you, Cair ;)   I have characters on all three factions, though the only one over level 10 is in Daggerfall (19-20 ish).  

 

Would love to have bank access; I hate leaving provisioning materials behind but I just don't have room to store everything yet.  Be happy to drop them there to share and just grab what I need from time to time.

I have characters on all 3 factions as well (my highest level character is in Daggerfall - lvl 25 Orc Dragonknight). I read that they're going to put in cross-faction instance grouping outside of the the LFG tool, so at least it'll be easier for people to do content together even if we're separated across factions. IMHO, that's something they should have had at launch, with guilds being cross-faction and all, but it's nice that they're adding it.

FYI - I was very eager to get on and make those changes, but found I had not reinstalled since I formatted my Drive a few weeks ago. Currently in that process and trying to get this up and running again.

 

EDIT: And I need 80 Gigabytes...

I still get online and play the Dragonfall Covenant side...me and a buddy named Otosogari1.  We are on at least 4 or 5 nights a week.  We run in PVP with a group called the Heart of Darkness.  Us and Ark Knights are the DC for on Haderus.  The game is fun as hell.

Hey all, where are most of you playing now?  The wife and I are mostly playing ebonpact mostly.  However, we have ventured across all three and have the majority of all the crafting taken care of.   Just wanted to put a feeler out there.

I have 2 characters on DC and one each in the other factions. I haven't been online that much lately, though.

If someone is looking for an invite, you can find me as @Lazumi or @Ahnyari. I can't promote, but at least I can get you in. 

 

 Largely it's just been @Argentyne and I playing; I've not seen anyone else on in a while. I have characters in all three factions, though my highest is in the upper 20s in DC.

I think I'm going to just take the plunge again. I have all the DLC and my highest level character is only level 20, so there's a lot that I can do - and I love the immersiveness of the world.:)

Awesome, I already have some toons on all sides as well.  V1 templar and wife is V1 nightblade, so we will see what we can do to play with you guys. :)  Looking forward to it.

I can also invite into the guild (on PC). Friend @MadBlue and I'll invite you. It's nice that guilds can be cross-faction. It's unfortunate that the factions can't group together in open world, but at least they can in instances now.
