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.

Camelot Unchained Newsletter #67

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.

I didn't know that they had an emu server for CoH.  Something that I will have to try out.

this game was popular for a minute or two... I even had it.  But I don't think it kept my attention long enough for me to try a emu server.

 They have 4 servers up now (I'm playing on Torchbearer). Apparently there have been at least 30,000 people playing over the past week.

It's pretty dated, as far as graphics goes, although the cell shading option covers up for that a bit by giving it a more comic-book look.

oh my gosh, this game brings back fond memories.  I need to figure out what to play.  To try out the game, I created Johnny Neutron and played the tutorial.

I have a bunch of heroes and villains. Mostly I've been playing a Controller (Gravity/Temporal Control) Hero named Doc Morlock, who was my original CoH character back in the day, but every time a fresh idea pops into my head I want to create another character. :D  My ID on the servers is @MadBlue

I noticed a lack of blasters in the game for some reason. a lot of tanks, masterminds, and controllers.

OK, so I now have a roster of 10 characters (I think that's enough ... for now). I just hope they don't wipe the servers. :D

 

On the Heroes side, I have:

Doc Morlock (Controller) - Gravity Control / Time Manipulation: Inspired by the culturally advanced Morlocks from The Time Ships, one of my original CoH characters, based on a Mutants & Masterminds character I played (also one of my DCUO characters).

Nightgaunt (Scrapper) - Claws / Ninjitsu: Basically a Batman type character. Named after the creature from Lovecraft's writings, one of my original CoH characters (also one of my DCUO characters, although I had to rename him Knightgaunt there after the server merges).

Legal Eagle (Tanker) - Shield Defense / Broadsword: A law student who transforms into his heroic form with an amulet of Horus. Inspired by this action figure . :D 

(The) Roboteer (Mastermind) - Robotics / Traps: Steampunk cyborg engineer. I based her on a video I saw a few years ago. I can't remember the details, but it was a live performance about a clockwork girl. 

DynaMojo (Blaster) - Electrical Blast / Electricity Manipulation: Ex-police detective, and Chosen of Sogbo, Loa of lightning, One of my DCUO characters.

 

On the Villains side, I have:

Mister Horrible (Brute) - Super Strength / Regeneration: A "Mr. Hyde" type character, named after a character in a They Might Be Giants song. :) 

Abracadaver (Mastermind) - Necromancy / Dark Miasma: He's a skeletal magician with a handlebar mustache.

Shrieking Violet (Controller) - Plant Control / Nature Affinity: Basically, like Poison Ivy, but purple and more unbalanced, one of my DCUO characters.

Charro (Blaster) - Fire Blast / Fire Manipulation: Constantly burning,  his body is encased in fire-proof armor that delivers drugs to alleviate his unending pain. Manipulated by Arachnos to do their bidding, Charro is kind of a tragic figure. I originally created him as an NPC for a Doom Patrol-inspired Mutants & Masterminds campaign.

Kurobara (Arachnos Widow) - Widow Training / Teamwork: Japanese for "Black Rose." I use that name a lot for female Assassin-type characters.

abracadaver! I love it. 

 

I had a necro mastermind and somehow got the name "Hoard" so under all the zombies it said Zombie "Hoard"  :)

 

I still don't know what I want to play :(

 

Love the mastermind, specifically the Robotics / Shields.

Really enjoy the scrapper, usually claws or kinetics with regeneration or energy

Blasters are very rare to see running around the city and was having fun with dual wield / martial 

My favorite class is controller and gravity / anything, ice / storm , illusion / kinetics, Mind / empathy.... just so many choices I love but I prefer playing them in groups for obvious reasons. 

 

I did copyright the name Fury Storm which was a defender storm / lightining and could roll that.

Good news.  I plan on putting on some spandex tights tonight and go clobber some villians.   The problem is that I can't decide what to play.  I like to blast stuff, but I don't like being a glass cannon.  Is the Sentinel a good class?

I just rerolled my Fire Blast / Fire Manipulator Blaster as a Fire Blast / Willpower Sentinel. Haven't played him yet, but I like the fact that there's a mix of DPS and survival related powers.

I rolled a Lightning/regen Sentinel.  I am thinking about switching to a Rad/Regen Sentinel.  Is Rad good or better than Lightning?   

When I played CoV, my main was Dark/Dark Corrupter, but that was a very long time ago.  This time around, I would like to play a blaster type which can solo, which is why I picked a Sentinel. However, I can't decide on what power to take.  I like how Rad looks, but I heard Lightning or Fire is better for soloing.

That's hilarious. Is this a character you're playing? 

I wound up playing around with a few of my characters - mostly concept and name changes to sound more like typical superhero/villain names: "Dynamojo" is now "Captain Dynamo," "Kurobara" is now "Blood Orchid" and "Charro" is now "Pyre" (I was surprised that name was still available).

I'm not sure what character is the most fun to play, but I think Robotics / Traps is a nice balance of DPS and survival, since I can sic a bunch of robots on enemies and stand back and blast them.

Trusin and I were playing on the new server last night on the hero side.  That was first time that I played a hero, because I only played CoV before.  There is a lot of new stuff to learn.

There are free server transfers.  We need to pick a server.

They have a server status page up. Torchbearer is the healthiest as far as population goes. It's the original server. When I started it was the only one up and running (well, the original one was Bree before the wipe). I have 10+ characters there. Granted, I could probably get most of my names if I transferred to Halcyon, but it would take a few days to transfer all my characters.

 

If you guys only have one or two characters, maybe a good thing to do would be to save names on Torchbearer and transfer over once double XP is over?
