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.

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.

Soo as a dynamic PoT, everything is flexable. My bank was loaded when i logged in, 280 some items because i have all the different lot markers, all the different NPCs for the town, all the npc buildings etc.

 

That being said, let me know and i will place you a lot where you wantz, we have a large island so we can have a very tight nit town setting or we can spred out, the total square cant exceed our towns size.

 

Also need help figuring put what npc/npc building to lay out, i have all of them but can only place one at a time

so i just checked out the handy dandy "homes merchant" and he is selling a village lot deed for 250,000 gold, town lot deed for 400,000 gold, city lot deed for 800,000 gold.  he also sells a basic list of houses ranging from 10,000 to 40,000 gold, looks like the 10,000 are for row homes, 20,000 for the village, and 40,000 for the town.

let me know and i can toss out the homes merchant or any of them it looks like, but can only have 2 NPC's down at a time.

Hello Ben,

                    I made the run to the Isle. I do Love the location too. Not far from the mines for adventures into thier depths :). I have two village lots I would love to place side by side on the isle. Just let me know where. Some lots with a view would be great if possible. Did we all want to be near each other? I was going to use one of the lots to put down the crafting stations as I purchase them with one of my smaller houses for storage and indoor crafting. I will see if I can still get a house at one of the towns that have the mail deliveries so anyone making a run there can use that house as a guild house.

Does this town have a name or do I just have to enter every town around that area?

Are lots free to place up to the town limit, or do we need gold for them? Or does the gold only come in at the deed stage?

 I believe you can purchase lots in game for an amount that the PoT owner sets as the price. Otherwise you can by them ingame at the NPC Deed Merchants. And place them with the PoT's owner's permission.

I think the POT owner has to define where lots are, and their size (which determines eligible deed types)

I have a bag full of plot types, just let me know what type and where and ill toss em out.

Now that the final wipe has happened, ill get the PoT setup again.

How many row/village/town lots should i start with?

Wipe is tonight still. So don't do it quite yet!

 

Though that is a very good question which will ultimately probably depend on how many people we have playing and how much space we have to put down. I would like to eventually hold a village lot in the CotP town. But I have to get there through gold, so it will be a while before I can afford it!

 

What were we working with? Holdfast? Hamlet? Larger?

 

And what lot sizes are going to be in use already, such as for yourself and other known players?

Its a holdfast, i think spy has a town or village, i have a town and row, not sure who else has what. So still room for a couple towns or several village and rows.

 

Now that they have released the property tax info im glad i got tax-free deeds.

Hmmm... I might suggest...

 

4 Town Lots, 10 Village Lots, 12 Row Lots

 

As a starting point. At least if I am assuming the proper math. I think that should offer a spot for everyone to have something in the town - I don't think we have that many people starting in the chapter. No more new player towns are popping in, but if we have a growth spike, we could try to take a collection to purchase an upgrade as those are still on offer.

 Yep I will feel the pain with 2 village lot deeds but of course that's no problem if I could only make the 3600/hour like they were claiming you can make. I am happy to make 1.5 k for a whole night.

That's the strategic decision between melting down weapons for metal scrap vs vendoring them off.

I dont think they took a look at the whole population, if you average the hardcore vs normals the rent cost is scewed towards the hardcore hurting the majority of players. Hopefully they keep a close eye on it and adjust when they see they set the bar too high for the normal players

I think Row lots are pretty obtainable, but still high. If they set Row at 250/day and brought the others down a price tier I think it would feel about right. My hodge-podge unoptmiized build was able to pull in 2-3K an hour at 3 Skull scenes. I think the issue is that they are aiming houses at characters who have reached the end of the current progression. 5 Skull players may be able to pull in the kind of numbers they mention, even the casuals. But it takes so much longer for casuals to get there that many probably haven't experienced that level of play. I think they are also wanting to place it at a difficulty curve where people are tempted to throw CotOs at it.

 

For me... the barrier is going to be the initial gold cost of a deed. Do not presently have the expendable cash for a cash-shop deed, so gotta go in the hard way.
