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.

Migration

Recommended Posts

  I have decided to move Spryone out of CoTP and join the Guild known as Stormsong. I guess the main reason is that when I started playing Shroud I looked forward to playing with so many of you who were commited to the game. Those of us who are playing are still playing and enjoying everything about the game. It has its querks but they will all get better with time. Each patch makes Shroud just a little bit better and just like EVE it will be expanding and fleshing out into the game UO could never be. I love playing with everyone who is in CoTP presently and who has been in it in the past but after committing to Shroud as much as I have I want to be able to play with groups of guildies regularly and enjoy the other aspects of the game as a group of Avatars. We have been there in spurts as CoTP and it has been great fun when we were. Release has happened and those who have come back are either here to stay or not. The guild I have joined seems to be like us spread out throughout the World with players on at different times of the day but more than just one or maybe two others besides myself. This should allow for groups the opportunity to complete those ring events or crafting recipe trading events that UO/Shroud is all about. Heck a couple Fridays ago I was out on the dance floor while a DJ was jamming out some tunes on Twitch in a Community event. Its been a long time since I got to do the "Humpty Hump".

Summ!,

Hey Spry,

I agree with you that SotA despite its bugs and unfinished content is still a lot of fun.  I believe I was the one who originally brought SotA to CotP's attention.  I never thought it would never draw a large player base of current members as it is clearly a niche game.  I had hoped that we would be able to draw new players to the guild since we provide a large community, great forums, and strong overall leadership that would make us appealing.  Given that this game was an open development game for a couple of years we as a chapter never defined what we were about.  Some of the biggest guilds in SotA clearly had a vision of what they wanted and they created it.  Although we has a strong core base of players for a while we never truly had a vision or a direction.  I am not even sure that I remember having a healthy discussion other then a few posts her on the forums or chatting amongst ourselves in Discord.  As an officer and main cheerleader of this game I take responsibility for that lack of direction and vision.  It didn't help that due to an emergency medical condition I was gone for 2 solid months.  Having said that, my latest approach as been to try and get non CotP friends interested in the game.  I have gotten about 15 people to try the free trial however only 1 seems to want to stay with it.  These were all hardcore UO and Ultima fans so I felt they would appreciate the design.  Unfortunately with the learning curve coupled with bugs and in some cases technical difficulties running the game (I couldn't log in for a month because of windows 10 update not letting me load the game and I got tired of always uninstalling the update just to play Sota when every other game of mine played fine).  First  impressions as so important.  I think Port would of done better by minimizing the scope of chapter 1.  If they focused on the main systems of combat and crafting which I actually really like and maybe one story path in one region they could of nailed it and the polish of the scenes would of been great.  The new scenes look awesome but releasing 3 a month is way too slow but if they only had one region all scenes would of gotten proper love and they could of added the other 2 storylines as chapter 1.2 and 1.3.  

 

I am undecided in terms of either joining a more establish active guild that enjoys PvP or putting my own small crew of players together that will focus on PvP.  Everyone is on my friends list and I am always up to group up with anyone so just send me an IM.
