Conan Exiles - Crush Your Enemies, See them driven before you!

My mistake when I first played was going eastwards up the noob river. As someone with chronic arachnophobia, I could not have picked a worse spot to start the game.

Anyone playing on keyboard - HINT - bind second left mouse button as right ALT. This auto attacks so is perfect for mining or chopping trees without getting RSI.

Yeah, yikes.

I planted my humble river abode just east of The Sentinels. Decent mining there.

So the Abysmal Remnant seems to be broken. He/ she/ it just sits in the middle and occasionally roars at me. I read that if you dive into the pool you can sometimes wake him up, but no. I merely died and lost everything.
He seems to be a bit more active before the two undead guards are killed. Once they are down he/ she/ it just seems utterly uninterested.
If anyone wants to experiment sometime and get this done together let me know.

Just the normal spit/roar/duck/dive/lunge repeat when i did it again.

Yeah, I've beaten him on my own server and our previous one, but you can't even spam arrows now because he's set in regen mode and can't reach with anything else.
I've had a few corpses disappear as well which is so annoying, especially after traversing the map to get to them.

I've noticed one map room in the awesome structure by New Asagarth. Are there any others deployed, particularly around the desert ?
If not I'll build a couple more, one by the Black Galleon and one by my base which is at Mounds of the Dead.

That would be mine. I'm almost finished building and ready to start decorating.

Not sure about others.

All I have is the base game for Conan. If I wanted to jump back in are there DLC's I'd need to purchase?

Only paid DLC currently are for cosmetic changes.

Yup. It's a choice thing. I just bought the Darketo pack which looks interesting, will prob pick up some more during the sales.

I just want to do a quick shout out to Sepermeru City (west on map) as a starting area.
I've nailed the fastest start in solo (on hard), which is to use the starting river until you can make two water bottles, then head directly along the border of the map for the city.
There is fresh water, you can fish, there are deer and shalebacks for leather, jungles for wood, tons of iron and coal, dead trees for bark and the city is full of free loot or high lvl or named thralls.
I hit lvl 30 after about 8hrs farming. It's such a perfect start spot.

Feels great to be back in, and I have some lofty ambitions for my new pad which is going to be directly south of the Mounds of the Dead spawn.

If I can join guild at any point, let me know. I'm on Discord.

I almost went this route because all the new videos strats suggested it, and i would totally recommend new folks to go that route. I knew what i needed and where everything was from before so went straight to the Black Galleon area to start and stayed there till i was 30. I then made my way up north. I just hit 60 so farming star metal and leveling up thralls/pets.

If i don't see you before ping me this weekend and i'll get you into the guild.

Also not sure if you noticed yet but a lot of recipes have changed since we last played.

Seems a bit easier tbh, but maybe that's just experience talking. It helps I now respec before farming or fighting rather than trying for a build that does both. Having a full encumb build before mining saves a ton of time.
Was glad to see some bits have been filled in since I last played like the silver mine.
I never go east for some reason asides to pick up the XPfor exploring and Darketo thralls. I'll pop a wheel of pain down there for peeps to use if no one has set up there.

Got the game downloaded last night but didn't get a chance to play. Are there any mods I need download? I noticed on Nexus mods that the number one mod is called Conan Sexiles. That sounds pretty interesting. LOL

Only 2 are installed currently.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfil... (PIpi, which i may undo. The few admin stuff i've tried to use it for doesn't work)

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfil...(iQoL. Helps with the UI. I primarily use it so i can see actual numbers for the different values on the screen)

For some reason I can't see the server now. It is showing 0/1 in favorites but not showing up.

I got it. I had to go into Steam and Servers and join from there. Not sure why it's not showing up in the game under favorites or when I search.

Nope. I have to Direct Connect to it every time, including on days where I've logged in multiple times.

Make sure you have the check marked for servers with mods.

Yeah, it was that filter that fixed it for me.

i did this starting back in the beginning of early access (before the north was there). back then it was a great place to start as long as you stayed away from the dragon. since then i know they've done a bunch of improvements to the area. i used to find it much easier to deal with than the black galleon, i always ended up getting caught on something and dying there. :p

i may have to reinstall this.

Yes, my favorite spot is just outside Sepermeru, and a short walk down to the obelisk. Of course starting out I am in no shape to enslave a Sepermeru thrall but I like having those T3,T4 thralls nearby for when I am ready.

Randomly felt like playing this, hope it's ok if I hop on the server. I promise not to make a mess.

Have at it. With it being free on EGS soon i went ahead and removed the couple mods that were on there.

It's not free any more.
