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.

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.

What are your character(s)'s SMART goals?

Recommended Posts

Oh no! Why is this office work term showing up for a video game? Don't worry, you don't have to put anything if you don't want to. I just thought it would be nice to get an idea of folks' biggest priorities at the moment. We're a bit far in and maybe some of you have already finished your intended path and are just kind of meandering. If so, maybe put some thought into what next. If not, let us see if we can help each other by making our areas of focus known! Don't worry if someone else already posts the same goal or a conflicting goal. Just have fun with it!

 

What do I mean by SMART goals? If you don't work in an office (or even if you do) you may not have heard this term or may know of more than one definition of the acronym. So here is what I am talking about.

 

Specific: Narrow down your goal and be specific. It isn't just Acquire a House. Row, village, town, city make huge differences to the scope of the goal. Does it need to be an NPC city lot, or is POT lot just fine? Do you want to use a specific house deed? Etc....

 

Measurable: Make sure your goal has a way to measure progress! Things like Reach X Level or Acquire Y Possession are easy. The numbers are right there. Something like Be the best Blacksmith in Novia is rather nebulous. What parameters make you the best? Highest skill? Most sales? Most profit? How do you get numbers from your competition to measure against? By all means, strive to be the best, but its hard to make a measurable goal out of and thus falls short of this exercise.

 

Achievable: The goal should be achievable in the game systems. Becoming the Governor of Ardoris is not achievable in the game systems (to my knowledge).

Relevant: This is more of a workplace thing where your goal should be relevant to your position / responsibilities. In this case we're going to swap it our with Rewarding, Make sure your goal is something that will promote fun for you personally!

 

Timely: We're playing a game, not running a project so we don't need deadlines. But we should keep timeliness in mind. I could say for example, that I want to earn a million gold. That ticks all of the above boxes, but it would take me so long to do that I might become demotivated. In that case, it is time to break it up.

Arnaeus Moonglow's Goals:

  • Save Up 4 Months worth of Tax Credit for a Village Lot
  • Reach Level 100 in Tailoring Skill
  • Reach Level 75 in Tailoring Masterwork Proficiency
  • Reach Level 50 in Cloth Masterwork Proficiency

 

These are broken down goals, out of much larger ones. As these get hit they will be upgraded to their more ambitious versions.

 

Largest Challenges:

  • Grinding out the required Crafting XP
  • Farming the Silver - Earth Elemental respawn rate makes solo farming more challenging last I checked.

Not seen anyone else on in a while, but figured I'd drop a personal progress report in here anyways.

 

Have my village lot paid out to 70 days out of 120. So little more than half. Grinding bandit Fighters for halberds in Serpent's Spine Foothills still seems the fastest gold farm when solo.

Tailoring is at 99/100, so that is almost off my list as well. Crafting XP Grind is still rough in time consumption, though I am starting to do a little better against the elementals. The new resists system made them a bit tougher, but it is more likely to fight one or two at a time than three or four now.

 

 

Still slowly chipping along.

Haha, too many to list!

 

Stretch Goal: More engagement with community in an effort to recruit/grow the chapter!

 

That one is presently tough given my limited play time and the fact that new players are rare and most existing ones have formed affiliations.

I have been busy doing some personal security jobs, but I am home now. I will probably try and get on some as nothing needs my attention for a few months.

It'll be nice to see you again. I had taken a break myself prior to starting this thread up.

 

Just wrapped up my housing pre-payment to 105 days, which seems to be a limit. But I've got the funds set aside to cover another month of tax. So first of the above goals completed. Now I get to go back into mining silver constantly.

More than willing to tag along to help out if we wind up online at the same time. Some areas got harder, some got easier. Mob spawns are way faster, which makes things like silver collection a bit more combat intensive.
