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.

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.

Deck Question

Recommended Posts

Since coming back to SotA, I have been messing with some deck theory crafting.  I am curious how many cards people run in their decks and how many locked slots you use.

 

I currently do not have any locked cards which works for me but I am curious to see what others are doing and how they like their decks so far.

Inseril,

I think I have 66 cards with 5 locked slots. I still am tweeking as I learn more how to play and use the deck when I am soloing. In a group I use the same deck but stay out of combat if the group is more than 2 of us normally to heal.

I originally would stick exclusively to a fully unlocked decks. With the new charge up system I'm currently fully locked but I'm still experimenting with unlocking for combos. I'm thinking I may not unlock ever again

Thanks for the feedback on your decks.  I currently use 5 completely unlocked decks.  My main trees are Polearms (spear), Light Armor (leather), Shields, Earth, Sun, and Life.  (I also have the must have passive skills in the tactics and focus trees as well)

 

I always have a close combat deck and a ranged combat deck set as either equipped or alternate.  I have a similar pair for fighting undead.  My 5th deck is a combination of ranged with mostly healing spells when in a group that needs a healer. 

 

I generally prefer voice coms, I just keep forgetting about the discord channel.  I will try to remember  :lazy3:

No pressure on Discord. Just love to have more people to yap with. Per Spexs suggestion I've started to have my alternate deck be a full buff deck. I also always carry a potion on my non combat deck as my oh s$i$ button.

I'm Hybrid. I've got Ice Fist, Ice Arrow, Searing Ray on 1,2,3,4 with Discharge on 3,4 as well. 5 I have Ice Shield, Douse, Blind, Healing Touch.

 

Locked:

6 - Dodge

7 - Evasion

8 - Deflect

9 - Defensive Stance

10 - Soothing Rain

 

I haven't updated since the heat system was added, but it certainly helps power up those defensive ones I only need once and a while.

Hi, all.

I have a hybrid deck for ranged combat. Doing this from memory do may have some spell names wrong...

 

1. Dash, locked.

2. Snare, archery, locked. 

3. Have defensive spells stacked, one each. 4 total.

Fortify Defense

Glancing Blow

Parry

Earth Embrase 

4. Healing Grace, locked.

5. Heal, self heal only, locked. 

6. Arethic Feedback. Locked

7. Blinding shot, Locked. 

8, 9, 10 all same

Aimed shot, 5 each

Rapid fire, 5 each

Piercing Shot, 5 each

These are set up to stack off my mouse. 

I have between 17 and 19 in my deck. This is so I can keep a high density of offensive spells to defensive spells.

Any of you guys are welcome to look me up on Discord and chat with me. I am happy to talk while we play. :)

Your Red Guardian,

Spexs
