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.

Started a new char and have been learning to craft. A lot of back and forth running for it getting certified.

Hi Ernie,  glad to see you are still playing games.   Is Elder Scrolls the only game you are playing now?

I guess the older I get the less time I feel like putting into one. 74 this month.  Good to hear from you Damis.

Happy Birthday! :) 

What are you working on crafting? I can certainly spare some mats (well, other than for Jewel Crafting).

I have been starting to research traits. I am certified in everything but still have not got to the point of making things to use.  I seem to have mats. Just need more knowledge, as usual.

Same hit me up for mats or conversation.  The crafting system is great but there is a learning curve.  I do like that it make items that are useful it not just a pretty pastime.

I could use new armor. Using lev 14 jualinos heavy training now. Anyone willing to make me a lev 22 set, imperal style. A healing staff too.

I'm working on research requirements to be able to craft sets. I've been more focused on leveling crafting than research, so up until now I've been mostly deconstructing gear for mats.  The Julianos set requires 6 researched traits for each piece. To tell the truth, I didn't even realize you could craft different sets at different locations until a week ago, and didn't know what the requirements were until you asked about crafting a set. :D 

To be honest, though,  crafted sets like Julianos are often best in slot as far as crafted gear goes, so if you want blue+ quality, it's probably better to save tempers and whatnot for level 50 (160CP) when you'll get more use out of the gear. The gear you get from questing and drops (with crafted gear to fill the gaps) is fine for leveling, especially considering how quickly it will be replaced and the fact that everything scales to your level. That said, I can probably make a serviceable healing staff, but by the time I've researched enough traits to make the Julianos set,  you'll probably be level 50.;)

Regarding the style, you can customize your look at an outfit station, so you can keep the Imperial heavy armor style that you have now without actually wearing Imperial (or heavy) armor. :)

No problem, I got new lev 28 blue set and  actually, 2, 5 or more piece sets. I have a Vanus set of staff, 2 rings and amie along with 7 heavy pieces of julianos, seems to be real nice, so far. After the patch the staff counts at 2 pieces for sets.

I posted in the jewelry crafting thread a few minutes ago, but I'd be happy to make any items that guildies need for research or to assist with crafted gear. Also happy to jump into voice chat and answer questions on crafting or gear sets in general :) 

Drop me a wish list and I can send them to you in game.
