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.
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.
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.
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.

Recommended Add-Ons

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of add-ons that have been made to enhance playing experience. The best way to get them is through an add-on manager called Minion.  You can also go directly to ESOUI, the site that houses the add-ons, if you don't want to use a separate program to manage them. Here's a list of ones I use and recommend (some are out-of-date, but they still work):


Advanced Filters - Filters your inventory and bank in finer detail than the default (armor type, materials by craft,etc)

Azura - Interface Enhanced - Unlocks the interface and lets you move elements around

CraftStore DB - Allows you to search for recipes for quests, among other things

ESO Master Recipe List and ESO Master Recipe List Alt Format - Shows which characters can craft a recipe you pick up as well as whether it"s known or not known by the characters

Harven's AS to LAM Adapter - Simplifies the way add-ons are grouped in the Settings menu

Harven's Improved Skills Window - Improves the way skills are displayed and shows more information on the tooltip

Inventory Grid View - Shows your inventory/bank as a grid instead of a column

LoreBooks,  Lost Treasure and SkyShards - Show location or lore books, treasure map treasures and surveys and sky shards on the map

LUI Extended - Among other things, allows you to change the unit frames (for example, to stack Health, Magicka and Stamina to display the player frame similarly to other MMOs) and displays information on weapons and armor damage, FPS,  etc. Another very popular UI replacer is AUI (but it doesn't have the MMO-style player frame).

My Build Continued - Shows character build information in one window

Pet Dismiss - Adds a keybind to dismiss Sorcerer pets

Potion Maker - Improved interface for crafting potions. 

Ravalox' Quest Tracker - Improved quest tracker (main screen) 

Roomba - Guildbank Stacker  - Stacks the items in the guild bank

SpentSkillPoints - Shows spent and unspent skill points

StopIt! - Stops the character from spinning around when certain windows are open and allows you to move while windows are open

Votan's Improved Quests - Improved quest tracker (map)

Votan's Minimap - A nice minimap

Wykkyd Full Immersion - Hide UI elements on screen. I use this to hide the compass and change the way the reticle displays (there are other add-ons that do this separately, as well)

Combat Metrics: Damage Meter - I don't use a damage meter, but apparently, this is the recommended one

The above are all found on Minion. In addition, if you want to change the color palette or remove the haze, this is a good program:

ReShade - Post-processing injector. Directions for how to use it with ESO are here.


NOTE: I've been using these add-ons for as long as they've been available, so I'm not sure if some of the functionality of these add-ons has been since coded into the game :D

Yeah, I didn't realize I was using so many add-ons for the game. Quite a few of them are just to make the UI look and function more like a standard PC-based MMO, rather than the more platform-friendly default UI.  I set my UI up to look similar to the way I set it up in other MMOs. I like keeping all the important information at the bottom of the screen.
