Age of Sorcery — Chapter 2 has arrived, bringing new features, a new Battle Pass with new Bazaar items, Twitch Drops, and a story recap. There’s a lot to dig into, but first, take a look at the brand-new launch trailer!


Headhunting

The world of Conan Exiles gets ever more dangerous and filled with new adventures. With the rise of sorcery, new arrivals to the Exiled Lands have taken notice, and are searching for anyone mad enough to hunt these sorcerers. Find their camps strewn across the world and accept their bounties.

Hunt across the land for sorcerer NPCs and bring them back dead or alive. A skull is fine, but living flesh will grant a larger reward. Get valuable resources, armor pieces, and more.



Witch Hunt Encounter

As you explore the world, watch out for the new Witch Hunt Encounter, which comes in one of four flavors of evil sorcerer to defeat. Succeed in bringing one of these bosses down for a huge reward.

New Battle Pass and Bazaar Items

Explore a range of new cosmetics in the Battle Pass and Bazaar, including the new Stormglass building pieces, new armors, weapons, decorations, pets, and more! New challenges tied to Headhunting and the Witch Hunt encounter have also been added.

Twitch Drops

From today until January 3rd, 2pm UTC, you can watch Conan Exiles streams on Twitch to earn free and exclusive rewards. All you need to do is link your Twitch account to Conan Exiles, which you can do through a handy button in the in-game menu.

Twitch Drops include: a Snowflake Wall Paint, the Festive Hunt Trophy, and the Festive Crested Lapdog (he’s beautiful).



The Story So Far

Discover the context of some of the events through each page in the Battle Pass. Dive into the video and relive the Chapter 1 story before continuing Chapter 2.


We’ve summed up the biggest news here, but please jump over to the patch notes for a full rundown of the new additions, fixes, and improvements.

Thank you for all you do in Conan Exiles. We cheer with every bashed head, sacrificed thrall, and base constructed. The team is incredibly excited with today’s content and everything we have in store, so grab your weapon and go take some sorcerer skulls. And if you are a sorcerer yourself, well, less competition doesn’t hurt.

Good hunting!]]>
Age 1 Chapter 2 Update (2022.12.06) - Patchnotes https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1208/age-1-chapter-2-update-20221206-patchnotes/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1208/age-1-chapter-2-update-20221206-patchnotes/ Tue, 06 Dec 2022 10:22 CET
We hope you’ve had a great time with Age of Sorcery so far, sinking your teeth deep into all the new systems introduced Chapter 1 and finding out the powers within Sorcery. With today’s update, we’re starting Chapter 2, where we introduce a new Encounter type (psst, Events are now called Encounters!), Head Hunting!

You can now find head hunter contracts where you will have to hunt down nefarious Sorcerers hidden in the lands. It will be your choice to bring them back dead or alive! With this new Encounter we are also adding a new special encounter, Witch Hunter. Explore the lands to find more about it! This update will also introduce a new Battle Pass revolving this mechanic, with new challenges and rewards, as well as a new batch of items for the Bazaar.

Along with that, we are also starting our pet companion rebalance. This will be the first step in revising pets moving forward, with the intention of bringing them up to a level where they can be at a similar level to other followers. There will be more changes to come in future patches, so keep an eye out!

And of course, with this new update we are releasing a bevy of bug fixes to reported issues, including fixes to the most common crashes, fixes to texture and invisible issues reported with the release of Age of Sorcery and much more.

We hope you have a great time exploring all there is included in this new Chapter. Stay safe!

  • We have made some backend changes to fix certain instances of Crom Coin purchases.

Patch 3.0.4 (19.10.2022) https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1203/patch-304-19102022/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1203/patch-304-19102022/ Wed, 19 Oct 2022 10:17 CEST


  • An exploit regarding the crafting system has been fixed.

  • Illusions previously applied to an item will now not show if you equip them without owning the entitlement, as intended.

Yogtober: A Building Contest https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1202/yogtober-a-building-contest/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1202/yogtober-a-building-contest/ Tue, 18 Oct 2022 20:22 CEST

A harrowing wind starts blowing as Yog grows restless in his sleep, waking up to suffocate the world in his cloud of nightmares.

Yog demands one thing. A beautifully horrible place to spend the Yogtober together with his favorite worshippers.



Exiles, welcome to Yogtober. Our new building contest brought to you by us and your favorite deity, Yog. Your task is simple: create a building that best fits the category of your choosing. You can choose to participate in any one of the categories and create your own personal nightmare.

Judging will be based on creativity, originality, and how well they fit with the chosen category. Judges will be from the community managers, community support, and a select few Exiles volunteers.

The buildings do NOT have to be Yog themed, we just think he’s pretty neat.

So what are these categories?
  • Gothic: The romance in horror. Maybe a fascination with the dark, a sudden interest in the macabre. Pastel tones, black dye, the everbright grace of subtle white touches. Turn your home into your very own gothic canvas.

  • Haunted House: Creaking floorboards, something’s ticking on the window… Did you hear something? Huh, must be the wind. Watch out for the chain clanks you might hear in the night and never, I mean NEVER go into the room with the red door.

  • Necromancer’s Tower: The dark magics of the afterlife are calling to you. Answer them, but do it in a stylish way. Build a Necromancer’s Tower fitting for a dark sorcerer and imprison the earthly light inside so it is unreachable for the ones that need it.

  • Sacrificial Temple: Sorcery is here. And you know there is no sorcery without some blood magic. What do you need for blood? That’s right, a sacrifice! Make your very own sacrificial temple to lure curious cats and do your bloody deeds.

  • Cabin in the Woods: Never fails to scare off even the bravest exiles of them all. Isolated, in the middle of the woods, away from all living life… or is it? Only way to find out. Build a cabin in the woods and attract all kinds of cryptids so you can have a crazy party when Yog arrives.

Take your pick and start working on your cozy horror house!

There will be two winners for each category, one for unmodded and one for modded.

Feel free to share your creations on social media!



All entries must be submitted by October 31, 2022 11:59 PM EDT. We will not accept any entries after this date. Winners will be announced on November 14, 2022 2:00 PM EDT. Entries must be submitted through SurveyMonkey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Yogtober




You will be rewarded a plenty with:


The 10 winners receive:
The Age of Sorcery chapter 1 Battlepass OR choice of 1 DLC pack
  • The Battle Pass prize unlocks the full pass as if you bought it, but keep in mind you must still level up your pass to earn rewards!
  • Isle of Siptah is not eligible as a DLC pack prize. All other DLC packs, as seen in the DLC tab of the Bazaar, are fair game.
Plus choice of one of the following items:
  • Black Magic Starter Set
  • Gurnakhi Gear
  • Echoes of Acheron
  • Rotting Rhino

We will pick 2 winners for each category, totaling 10 winners. This means 5 for modded and 5 for unmodded.

You can join from any platform you want. Modded and unmodded entries will be judged separately in their own categories.



Please send us your entry through SurveyMonkey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Yogtober
  • We will accept entries until October 31, 2022 11:59 PM EDT. Entries submitted after this date will not be counted.

  • Shaggai Creatures ranged attacks are now functional on Dedicated Servers.
  • Minimum Stamina consumed or minimum Damage taken value is now 1 to prevent some unintended situations with certain character builds.

  • Resurrected Corpses should no longer turn invisible, delaying the inevitable uprising of Casper’s army.
  • Lighting Storm was unintendedly causing high amounts of damage to Building Structures. This has been addressed.
  • Lightning Storm will no longer damage the caster or the caster’s clan mates.
  • Lightning Storm will now strike up to 4 targets each striking cycle with a small delay between each target.

    • If you don’t own the item used to apply the Illusion, you will still be able to equip it, but you will only see the base version. If you equip the item later after owning the Illusion item, it will show with the Illusion applied.

  • Killing vultures now correctly counts towards the “Defeat Bird Creatures” challenge.
  • Addressed an issue that could cause Events to not be correctly updated under certain circumstances.

  • Addressed an issue that could cause the Bazaar to fail to load under certain circumstances.

The Age of Sorcery Update is Out Now! https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1199/the-age-of-sorcery-update-is-out-now/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1199/the-age-of-sorcery-update-is-out-now/ Thu, 01 Sep 2022 16:01 CEST
The Age of Sorcery begins, heralding a new era of Conan Exiles!

Today, we expand Conan Exiles with the biggest free update since launch, adding sorcery and rituals, an attribute and perk revamp, a new building interface, improvements to a long list of other features.


With this monumental update, we fulfill the Sword & Sorcery promise that lies at the heart of Conan the Barbarian, and give each of you a choice: What manner of power do you choose, and how far will you go to secure it?

To celebrate the release of Age of Sorcery, Conan Exiles is free to try from 19:00 CEST today until September 8, so now’s the time to invite your friends to embark on new adventures, and maybe sacrifice them for fresh blood after.

For Conan Exiles, this is a major shift in how we release both free and paid content, with what we call Ages. Each Age has its own theme, free content, and Battle Passes. This is a complete rethinking of how Conan Exiles will continue to expand – with more evenly paced content drops and an easy way for any of you to support the game’s growth and receive exclusive themed cosmetics.

Below, you’ll find a quick recap on the major new features that you can enjoy right now.

Sorcery
Delve into dark secrets and reap the rewards! Sacrifice your life force in return for a long range of corrupted sorceries. Take to the sky with your own personal bat monstrosity, make blood sacrifices to summon demons and raise the dead, conjure storms, and much more!



Battle Pass & Bazaar
The paid Battle Pass and in-game Bazaar item shop are brimming with cosmetics such as sorcery themed building pieces, armors, weapons, and more! Complete challenges to advance your Battle Pass and earn the rewards, many of which are free.

Attributes and Perks Revamp
With today’s update, you can specialize your character further than ever before by choosing between two powerful perks at every other attribute milestone. Those who choose the dark path of sorcery can also infuse their strength, vitality, and authority with corruption. If you put in enough corruption points to reach a perk milestone, that perk will be replaced by a special sorcery perk.

Explore a whole bunch of different builds, whether you are a barbarian, sorcerer, or something in between.

Building Interface and Overhaul
Building has received its very own dedicated interface, making it quicker and easier than ever to build, on keyboard and especially on controllers. There’s no need to craft building items either, since it’s crafted directly from the interface.



Creative Mode
We want all of you to build the way you want. Accessible directly from the main menu, the new Creative Mode grants you unprecedented freedom to build without costs or restrictions. Soar through the world and raise cities like a god.

Follower Updates
With the arrival of sorcery, we’ve added a whole bunch of new followers. We’ve also tweaked balancing, reducing follower health overall and tied follower damage to the Authority attribute.

And much more! There’s a huge number of other improvements, which you can check out in our Full Patch Notes[forums.funcom.com]!

PC Update 3.0 (01.09.2022) https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1198/pc-update-30-01092022/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1198/pc-update-30-01092022/ Thu, 01 Sep 2022 14:08 CEST
The time is here, Update 3.0 is finally upon us. This is the biggest free content update we have ever worked on for the game, and there is a lot to unpack here. So let’s get started!



Conan Exiles Update 3.0 brings a ton of new content, revamps core aspects of the game and adds a new progression system and an in-game shop. This amount of changes can be overwhelming, so we have compiled most of what you can expect in this update, while keeping some of the details as a surprise for those of you who don’t want spoilers!

We hope you enjoy the read and Update 3.0. Our team has been hard at work on all these features for months and we’re ecstatic to be be able to finally let you get your hands on what will be the biggest content update for Conan Exiles to date.

Welcome to the Age of Sorcery.




IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING MODS
Please remember that updates can mess with the functionality of your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed.



This is a simplified list of the biggest changes included in Update 3.0. We encourage you to survive, build and dominate your way through the content of this patch and find out its secrets!



Engage in Ritual Magic, brew powerful Alchemical potions and Cast powerful spells from 5 different Sorcery schools. But keep in mind, this power doesn’t come for free and your character will succumb to permanent Corruption the deeper your Sorcery knowledge becomes. Beware!

  • Unlock bigger Sorcerous powers and perks by sacrificing your body to permanent corruption.
  • 5 different schools of Sorcery at launch.
  • 3 Types of Sorcery at launch: Ritual Magic, Alchemy and Spell Casting.

We’re evolving the way we release post-launch cosmetic content with the new Battle Pass system and the new in-game store, the Black Lotus Bazaar!

  • Battle Passes will be centered around seasons, or Ages, each introducing big content updates, starting with 3.0: The Age of Sorcery!

  • New and old events will be added over time, rotating the active list with future patches and updates!
  • Optional feature, can be disabled or enabled via Server Settings.



We are changing the way Attributes and player Perks work in Conan Exiles, with completely new Attribute skill trees and reworked perks that will provide meaningful choices and powerful builds for your characters!

  • The previous Attributes have been reworked and substituted by a new set:
  • Strength, letting you hit stuff harder.
  • Agility, making you more nimble and deadlier with ranged weapons and certain melee weapons.

  • Attribute bonuses from Weapons and other Gear have been removed.
  • Weapon damage now scales based on base damage and points invested in Strength or Agility.
  • Armor, Potions, Food, Warpaints no longer provide Attribute bonuses. They now provide buffs to stats instead.
  • You can now only have one Potion/Elixir buff and one Food buff at a time.
  • Buffs to the same stat can be stacked, though.
  • Followers (Pets and Thralls) have also received a balancing pass:
  • They will now only have 4 stats: Strength, Agility, Grit and Vitality.
  • Their Perks have also changed due to the general revamp.
  • Their HP has been reduced based on their Tier.
  • Their damage output has been reduced by roughly 50%.



We are changing the building system to be more player-friendly, intuitive, less time consuming and easier to access all your pieces from a new Building UI! And we’re adding a new Creative Mode that will let you focus on bringing your creations to life!

  • New Construction Hammer item added to the game. Equip it to access the new Building UI!
  • The Construction Hammer will let you access the new Building UI from where you can see all your building sets and pieces! (pressing F by default)

  • New Creative Mode added to the game.
  • Accessed from the Admin panel or Esc Menu, it will activate cheats on your character, unlock all recipes and remove unnecessary UI elements temporarily so you can focus on building.
  • Once you disable Creative Mode, your character will return to normal and the normal gameplay UI will be restored!
  • New server settings added to further customize your building experience!
  • Building Stability slider.
  • “Build Everywhere” mode (bypasses building block restrictions).



You can now apply different looks to your Weapons and Armor (as long as both items are from the same category), in what you normally have requested as “a transmog system”!

  • You will need two items: the one you want as an illusion, and the one you imbue the illusion onto.

Follower Updates in Age of Sorcery https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1196/follower-updates-in-age-of-sorcery/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1196/follower-updates-in-age-of-sorcery/ Thu, 28 Jul 2022 17:03 CEST
Today, we look at followers, which is going through a major rebalancing and update in Age of Sorcery. These changes come through various new features and improvements, such as the new attributes and perks, new followers gained through sorcery, and changes made directly to all followers.

After the 3.0 update, you will have more diverse choices to shape your character, and one of the major aspects of this is the changes to followers. Whether you tread the dark path of sorcery or not, you can specialize as a leader who sends his loyal warriors into battle. It is up to you whether those warriors are human, demon, or undead.



Balancing

When we looked at the changes we wanted to make to followers, we knew we needed to rebalance them towards choice rather than a necessity. The result is that in Age of Sorcery, followers will have lower health and damage as their baseline, but if you want to, you can invest in making them more powerful through the Authority attribute and perks.

With these changes, you will not feel as disadvantaged without a follower, but if you do choose to use followers, it can also be far more rewarding.

We have an additional feature in the works related to survivability of followers, but we will detail this at a later date, since it will arrive after Age of Sorcery.



New Attribute – Authority

One of the new attributes in Age of Sorcery is Authority. With each point put into Authority, you will increase the damage dealt by your followers and improve your ability to knock humans out to be taken as thralls or... let us say fuel... for rituals.

Authority’s perks also improve your followers in various ways such as making enemies focus on them more over you and increasing their survivability through health regeneration and healing received. The final perk choice is between choosing to have one additional follower or giving your active followers significantly increased attributes. For the first time, you will be able to have two thralls follow you as your personal guard.

With sorcery, additional options are open to you as you increasingly corrupt your Authority attribute, replacing your uncorrupted perks. The first perk you get causes your attacks to have a chance to make your followers enter a frenzied state, making them temporarily deal increased damage. Each corruption invested past the first perk will increase the potency of it.



The final perk is Demon Lord. With each hit, there is a chance for a demonic follower to appear through a tear in reality and help you destroy your enemies. Although they only remain for a short time, you can summon several demons this way, if you are lucky.

Demonic and Undead Followers

A Sorcerer often imposes his will through servants, be they willing or otherwise. In Age of Sorcery, you can summon demons and raise the dead to do your bidding, provided you give yourself to corruption and make the necessary human sacrifices.

You can now create a Circle of Power in your base to serve as your window into an abyssal realm. With the correct ingredients, you can lure its denizens out of their plane and into yours.

Only by blood – demonic and human – can they be summoned. Bring through a powerful demon to vanquish your foes, and call an abyssal horse or rhino to carry you into battle beside it. These are no ordinary mounts. The Abyssal Rhino is a force to behold and has a devastating charge.

With the Battle Pass, you will also see several new skins, such as the undead horse and the wight horse.



Meddling with the dead is also one of the Sorcerer’s ways. Bring an unconscious thrall to a Shallow Grave to perform a ritual to reanimate its lifeless corpse. The attributes of the living thrall will reflect its stats in death. These are powerful followers that start at level 20 (max follower level) and have three perks.

But with time, even the dead may die. A corpse follower will gradually and visibly wither until they fall and a new body must be procured to replace it.

Summoning followers, demon and undead, mount and fighter, requires preparation and corruption, but the power they afford you is ample. For the experienced summoner, the sacrificial stone will see a steady flow of visitors, but never the same one twice.

The Age of Sorcery is Almost Upon Us

We are getting nearer to the release of this giant update and fundamental change in the development of Conan Exiles, and we could not be more excited to see what all of you will do with it.

Sorcerers, Barbarians, and all of you in between, we urge you to find your favorite way to play as you build, survive, slay, explore, and conquer in the Exiled Lands.

Attributes, Perks, and Corruption in the Age of Sorcery Update https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1195/attributes-perks-and-corruption-in-the-age-of-sorcery-update/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1195/attributes-perks-and-corruption-in-the-age-of-sorcery-update/ Thu, 21 Jul 2022 15:13 CEST
Building your character to excel at what you choose is an important aspect of Conan Exiles. Over time, we have noticed that certain attributes and perks are used a lot less than others by players. This is something we have wanted to improve for a while, and Age of Sorcery has been the perfect opportunity to do this.

For Age of Sorcery, we had three goals in revamping the system; one, to majorly rebalance perks and attributes to improve viability across the board; two, to integrate sorcery in a way that suits the fantasy; and three, to introduce an added element of choice in character progression.

It is worth keeping in mind that changes to the attributes and perks have far-reaching effects throughout the game, affecting combat, followers, resource gathering, and so on. In addition to the overhaul we are introducing the option of corrupting your attributes, providing additional perks focused on the twisted nature of sorcery.



We will start off by looking at the changes to overall progression, then move on to the specific attributes and their effects, and finally, corruption, the unique new perks that come with it, and the price to pay for those who choose to wield the virulent powers of sorcery.

Meaningful Progression and Choice

In Age of Sorcery, we’ve reduced the max number of attribute points you can earn from 390 to 60. Also, each attribute is now maxed out at 20 points, and there is no ramping cost as you level. In this way, every point placed into an attribute should be and feel far more impactful.

Further supporting this design goal, a new perk is earned for every five points put into an attribute. At every 10 points, you can choose between two different perks, meaning that every attribute has two milestones where you can choose between two perks, at 10 and 20 points.



With these changes, we look forward to players trying out various different builds and perk combinations to specialize their character. And with sorcery in the mix, diversity will be even greater, as we will show soon.

The Power of Perks

We have some really cool new perks coming in Age of Sorcery. Let’s look at a few examples. One of the 20-point agility perks is Rolling Thrust, which causes your first attack after a dodge to cost no stamina and have increased penetration.

The Builder perk makes all the structures you build more stable, and Survivalist makes tools last a lot longer and significantly reduces your hunger and thirst.



Shield master lets you block unblockable attacks at a higher stamina cost and you react twice as quickly after successfully blocking. There are many more brand-new perks, so make sure to explore all the possibilities and combinations.

Due to the new maximum of 20 points per attribute, you will be able to max out three of the attributes if you choose to, something which wasn’t possible before. You are also free to distribute your points across more attributes to increase your versatility in several different aspects.

New Attributes

As you can see in the list below, Accuracy, Encumbrance, and Survival have been replaced by new attributes. All attributes’ effects have also been tweaked. Here’s the list:

  1. Strength: You are a titan of muscle. Makes you deal more damage with strength weapons and somewhat increases your carry capacity.
  2. Agility: Precision, skill, and speed keep you alive. Deft weapons deal more damage and you have increased stamina.
  3. Vitality: A living Exile is a deadly Exile. Increases hit points.
  4. Authority: They will all kneel before you. Authority makes it easier to knock out thralls and followers deal more damage.
  5. Grit: The harsh elements and struggle for survival have carved out a deep well of willpower, providing you with increased stamina and armor.
  6. Expertise: Some destroy, some build. You do both. You can carry more weight.

Corruption - Power Demands Sacrifice!

In Age of Sorcery, you will be able to cast a plethora of sorceries, but these powers come at a cost. Only those touched by corruption can channel such dark forces, and they are easy to spot; hungry eyes staring from gaunt faces; blackened veins webbed across withered skin and atrophied muscle.



Sorceries require varying amounts of corruption to be present in the one trying to cast it. Each sorcery cast corrupts you a little more. The more corrupted the person, the less health and stamina they have. An Exile cannot sacrifice more than half of their health and stamina, but at this point no sorcery will be beyond their grasp.

The next step in the path to corruption is sacrifice. In Age of Sorcery, you can corrupt your strength, vitality, and authority to gain completely new corrupted perks, but to do so you require Soul Essences. These are acquired by bringing a living human to the sacrificial stone and tearing their soul from their body, leaving them a smoking husk, and you the proud owner of their Soul Essence.



You can now corrupt your strength, vitality, and authority up to the number of points you have spent in that attribute, costing a Soul Essence for each point. For example, if you have six Soul Essences and four points in vitality, you can corrupt your vitality up to four, leaving you with two Soul Essences.

Corrupted perks are acquired at the same intervals as normal perks and replace the previous regular perk. Each point of corruption spent past the first perk in a certain attribute will increase the potency of that perk.

Corrupted perks are only discovered when you meet the requirements for them. It’s worth noting that corrupted perks are not about casting sorceries directly. If you corrupt your strength for example, you will gain a perk that increases your damage beyond the limits of regular strength, albeit at the cost of your max health and stamina.

Corruption can be removed by being around dancer thralls, but if you have corrupted your attributes, your corruption will be locked to that level and can only be cleansed by resetting your attributes.

More to come!

We look forward to seeing you all experiment with varying levels of corruption and different perks to create your ideal Exile, be they barbarian, sorcerer, or somewhere in-between.

We hope you have enjoyed this dive into the changes coming to attributes and perks. If you missed them, we have already released similar articles on Sorcery, the building revamp, and Creative Mode. Go forth and feast your eyes!

There is more yet to come.

Battle Pass and Bazaar Full Overview in Age of Sorcery https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1194/battle-pass-and-bazaar-full-overview-in-age-of-sorcery/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1194/battle-pass-and-bazaar-full-overview-in-age-of-sorcery/ Thu, 14 Jul 2022 13:30 CEST
In Age of Sorcery, we’re upgrading the way we release both free and paid content. We are committed to developing Conan Exiles for ages to come, and with our system of Ages and Battle Passes, we can craft more evenly paced free content updates with an easier way for all of you to support the game’s growth and receive exclusive cosmetics.

After the update, you will find three new tabs on the far right of the tab menu: Challenges, Battle Pass, and Bazaar. Today, we will go through these and hopefully answer any questions or concerns on your mind.



First, a brief explanation of how the Battle Pass works. Whether you purchase it or not, you can progress through 60 levels by completing Challenges (more on those later). Each level has a reward tied to it, and while some of these levels are free, most are available through the paid Battle Pass.

If you don’t have the Battle Pass but progress through it for the free parts, then decide to buy it later, you will still receive all the rewards up to that level at once. In other words, awards apply retroactively.

Cosmetics, not Power

Before we get into the contents of the Battle Pass and Bazaar, let’s quickly talk about what’s not in it. It was clear from the outset that we would not sell anything that gives power. Essentially, the new Battle Pass replaces the previous DLC system but remains tied to cosmetics.

That means that any weapons or armor you see in the Battle Pass rewards will give you the recipe to craft it, not the weapon itself, and will have a base game equivalent in terms of stats.

You will also be able to use these weapons and armor to apply its looks to other gear through the illusion system, a new feature in the Age of Sorcery Update. This lets you apply one piece of gear's look to another of the same category. There are also no experience boosts or anything that gives you an advantage in PvP.



The Age of Sorcery Battle Pass also includes a bunch of free items. A new type of item that you can get from the free part of the Battle Pass is spell flasks. These are 5-stack one-use items that let you cast one of the new sorcery spells, such as lava floe or invisibility.

We believe these serve as a nice introduction to the mechanics of the new sorceries without the need to become a sorcerer, and everything that entails. They also shouldn’t disrupt multiplayer because they can only be earned and used once.

What’s in it?

As mentioned, the Battle Pass includes only cosmetics (and the one-use flasks). Here's a full list of the categories of items in the first one, but these will change for future ones:

  • Armors
  • Weapons
  • Building Pieces
  • Pets
  • Emotes
  • Decorations
  • Flasks
  • Warpaints
  • Mounts
  • Saddles
  • Crom coins
Most of these are in some way themed around sorcery, such as the rune-carved building pieces, colored wall torches, or sorcerer’s armor. The mounts are no ordinary steeds, as they all bear the vile mark of undeath.



Every few Battle Pass levels, you will also earn the new currency – Crom Coins. We have set this up so that anyone who progresses through the entire Battle Pass will receive enough Crom Coins to purchase the next Battle Pass, and so on. This means that in theory, you only need to purchase the first one to get all future Passes by using coins , provided you progress through them all.

We wanted the Battle Pass to be a part of the world and narrative, so with each Battle Pass page that you progress through (paid or not), you will discover the dark beginnings of Sorcery in the Exiled Lands.

The Bazaar

Crom Coins can also be used in the next new tab on the menu: The Bazaar. Here, you will be able to purchase cosmetics in smaller bundles or individually. For example, perhaps you want building pieces but not weapons. The Bazaar lets you pick only what you want.

There are a limited number of items in the Bazaar that rotate over time. We’ll have a pool of items that rotate in based on demand.



When a new Age begins and the Battle Pass resets, you will no longer be able to earn the items you did not progress to, but we may rotate modified versions of them into the Bazaar at a future time, and we will be closely monitoring community feedback on this aspect.

Progression - Challenges

You level up your Battle Pass by completing Challenges. These are five rotating objectives that each give a certain amount of XP when you complete them. When you finish one, it’s replaced by a random new one, without any limits, so you can level the Battle Pass for as long as you want.

Every day, you’ll receive five Challenge XP multipliers, which stack up to a total of 25, so if you don’t play for about four days, you’ll still get them. Each time you complete a Challenge, a multiplier is used up, giving your next Challenge a significantly larger XP reward.

If you come across a Challenge you don’t like, you can reroll your set of five. There are three rerolls which reset every 24 hours.



The Challenges range among several varied tasks, from killing a certain type of enemy to collecting materials, and more. Our goal with them is that you shouldn’t need to go out of your way to complete most of them, making you naturally level as you play the game.

Progression - Pace

Each Battle Pass will last for about 13 weeks. We have seen the concerns about how long it takes to fully complete, and our goal has been to balance it to a satisfying pace.

In practice, that means that if you play at least one hour on two separate occasions every week, you should be able to complete the entire Battle Pass before the next one comes along. If you play a single two-hour session, you may still finish it, but will need to complete some of the more difficult challenges. This is an estimate but gives a good impression of the pace.

The progression is also linear, meaning that it will not get harder to level the further you get.

A New Age for Conan Exiles

The Battle Pass is only one aspect of a larger change, which is Ages. Each Age will be split into chapters, with each chapter being a major free content update.



The Battle Passes and Bazaar allow us to release major content without a price tag, meaning we don’t need to split players between expansions. It means we can create an evolving world where the playing field remains equal.

We hope this has clarified everything for all of you. As always, we will continue to monitor feedback. We’ve included a lot of details in this text, so keep in mind that numbers and details may be tweaked before launch.

Building Unleashed – Creative Mode in Age of Sorcery https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1193/building-unleashed-a-creative-mode-in-age-of-sorcery/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1193/building-unleashed-a-creative-mode-in-age-of-sorcery/ Thu, 07 Jul 2022 15:03 CEST
Have you ever wished you could just build to the horizon and not worry about bashing rocks and chopping trees? That’s what Creative Mode is for. In Age of Sorcery, we’re making building as easy as possible, and today we’d like to talk about this new mode, explaining exactly how you can access it, and what you can do in it.



How and where to access Creative Mode

Conan Exiles is many things, including a sandbox. Creative Mode pushes this aspect to its fullest, letting you build without costs or restrictions. To access it, you simply open the menu and hit “Activate Creative Mode”, and boom.

Raise your city into the sky.

Of course, this mode will only be accessible on servers that allow it. On a private server for example, you can activate it whenever you want. By default, you’ll need to have administrator permission too, but you can make it available to anyone on the server through an option. We’ve also added an option to remove the stability loss multiplier, and the ability to build anywhere. So how does it work?

I’ve activated it, what happens now?

Once you’re in creative mode, you’ll automatically equip the new construction hammer and be good to go. You can find all the details about the building revamp in a previous article. When you build in Creative Mode, there are no material costs, and you have access to every building piece and placeable in the base game and any DLC you own.

When you activate Creative Mode, you effectively freeze survival mechanics and your own progression. You take no damage, you don’t gain experience, and when you exit the mode, your learned recipes return to what you had before you activated it.


Not every hammer is used to break.

Double tap the jump button and take to the sky, completing your journey to the apex of builderdom. And don’t forget that you can hold the sprint button while flying too, to really zoom around. Flight controls have also been tightened up overall to ensure a pleasant flight with ConanAir.

When you’re flying, it’s considerably easier to build tall structures, along cliff edges or up in mighty trees. You not only get a great overview of what you’re building but can also reach clunky places more easily and don’t run the risk of blocking your own placements with your body in confined spaces.

It’s also much easier to create the right building patterns with your foundations when flying around in Creative Mode. Because Conan Exiles uses a mix of triangles and squares you can get stuck with constructions where no piece will fit and you end up with gaps in your beautiful castle or stronghold. If you fly and lay down foundations for your whole base first, you can avoid having to rebuild much later.


No longer bound to the earth, I am the construction worker’s final form. I do not concern myself with the petty squabbles of lesser beings. I am a builder of cities. A creator. A GOLDEN GO – wait where are you going?

Besides making you really good at building, Creative Mode may give you a god complex, but that’s a risk we’re willing to take. Combined with the building revamp, building is both faster and more fun.

Picture this: You and your friends start off by taking some time building two huge cities, then you open the server to the public to populate them. Maybe you split into two clans, and besiege each other, or simply let people explore. In creative mode, you can completely change the face of the Exiled Lands and make it yours.



There are so many possibilities, and we’re constantly amazed by the imagination and creativity we see from the community, so we’re really hyped to put this tool in your hands.

Keep your eye on our channels as we’ll be releasing more details on Age of Sorcery.

Stay Alive, Exiles

Sorcery in the Conan Exiles 3.0 Update – Sacrifice and Power https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1192/sorcery-in-the-conan-exiles-30-update-a-sacrifice-and-power/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1192/sorcery-in-the-conan-exiles-30-update-a-sacrifice-and-power/ Thu, 30 Jun 2022 15:01 CEST To find enlightenment in the gasping darkness… whispers that rolled under the skin. How could mere flesh be a vessel for such power? And blood deliver it? With the right knife, he realized, reality could be sculpted. Bled. But the world was only as malleable as the mind allowed. Already they flocked to him. He would show them where to cut, to wring the darkness and drink the power. He set to work.

In the 3.0 Update, Age of Sorcery, we deliver dark magic into your hands. The team is thrilled to fulfill the promise of Sword & Sorcery that lies at the savage heart of Conan the Barbarian. This has been the dre am and vision since launch, and it’s incredibly exciting to have the opportunity to reach this huge milestone.



In this article, we will delve into the sorcery elements of the Age of Sorcery update; what it is, how you can acquire these powers, and more.

A Creeping Affair

The powers you will wield in Age of Sorcery are not the fireball-flinging, magic missile spells you find in many traditional fantasy games. The team has taken great care to balance authenticity to Robert E. Howard’s stories with satisfying gameplay. Sorcery in the Conan universe is an insidious, creeping affair, and this is also the approach in Age of Sorcery.

Should you take the path of corruption, you will choose the dominion of demons and ritual sacrifice, where power requires preparation. Raise the dead, conjure darkness and ice, and summon demons to tear apart those who oppose you.



The Journey into Darkness – The Sorcerer’s First Steps

Sorcery is not just a mechanic that we have applied on top of the game, it’s a journey woven into the world itself. Something is happening in the Exiled Lands. Sorcerers are spreading their vile influence, recruiting yet more people to preach their corruption. At the center of it all is a mysterious figure who claims to see beyond our world.

Should your curiosity and thirst for power get the better of you, take heed of the maps and mysterious writings that the sorcerers carry with them.

With the clues found on these dark missionaries, you will eventually acquire the Tome of Kurak, that lets you unlock sorceries one at a time. To do this, you must find and combine Sorcerous Spell Pages at the new Thaumaturgy Bench.



As you progress and learn new spells, you’ll require more and more pages. To speed up this process, you can now take sorcerers as thralls, forcing them to research pages for you over time. As you cast your first spell, you will realize that when you reach for corruption, it too flows into you.

Words of Power

To cast sorceries, you must equip a staff, which you can craft from the Thaumaturgy bench. Each sorcery is a spoken phrase. When casting a spell you will select your words in order through runes that appear before you. A spell from the realm of death will start differently than one from the realm of dreams, for example.

When you utter the final word, the sorcery will take effect.

The Cost of Sorcery

Performing sorcery fills you with corruption, visibly withering your body the more you do it. Some spells require a high amount of corruption to cast, but with sorcerous powers the body becomes weaker, lowering your max health and stamina.



As you become more corrupted, you can put points of corruption into your strength, vitality, and authority. For every perk milestone you reach with corruption, it will change into a special sorcery perk that synergizes with your new powers.

After the first perk, every subsequent corruption point put into that attribute will scale up your corrupted perks, making them more powerful.

There are ways to cleanse corruption, but once you’ve tasted the virulent powers, will you really let them go?

The Sorceries

Call of Nergal

With the Call of Nergal, you can summon a bat demon to lift you into the sky and carry you a great distance. You will be lifted upward and then control the direction of your glide. Your bat has an energy bar which depletes over time, which you can use to ascend higher at will.



Creeping Darkness

Draw in darkness, and then release it tenfold, plunging your surroundings into the black of night. This is no natural darkness, as the skittering sound of spiders that accompanies it attests. Enemies caught in this unnatural nightmare are terrified until attacked.



Lightning Storm

Conjure a great storm cloud that strikes your enemies in the area with lightning, while leaving you and yours unharmed.



There are many other sorceries such as an ice bridge, invisibility, and more, but we will let you discover those by yourselves.

Rituals

Rituals are a major aspect of sorcery that bring an element of crafting into the mix. Sorcery and summoning require reagents, some more sinister than others. By bringing an unfortunate captive to the sacrificial stone you can draw their blood to be used to summon various demons at the Circle of Power, another new crafting station.



By having the new ritual crafting stations at your base, you will be able to teleport to distant locations, raise the dead, summon demonic mounts and followers, and by the power of illusion, change the appearance of your gear.

There is still much left to discover in the Age of Sorcery that we’ll cover in other articles. Sorcery adds a whole new dynamism to the Exiled Lands, in both how you interact with the world, and other players, and we can’t wait to see how it leads to all kinds of unforgettable moments.

Thank you all for being here for this amazing milestone in Conan Exiles’ journey. There’s more yet to come!

Stay Alive, Exiles]]>
The Age of Sorcery Comes to Conan Exiles https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1191/the-age-of-sorcery-comes-to-conan-exiles/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1191/the-age-of-sorcery-comes-to-conan-exiles/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 15:02 CEST
Today we’re incredibly excited to announce the Age of Sorcery, the biggest free update to Conan Exiles since launch and a fundamental change to how we introduce new content to the game.

Put your feet up, grab a drink, and feast your eyes on our introduction to all the major changes coming with Age of Sorcery. Between now and the update, we’ll post several in-depth articles detailing these.


With Age of Sorcery, Conan Exiles fulfills the Sword & Sorcery promise that lies at the heart of Conan the Barbarian, and thrusts a choice into the hands of every Exile: What manner of power do you choose, and how far will you go to secure it?



Battle Pass and the Black Lotus Bazaar

On top of the free content, features, and improvements, the other major change coming is Seasons, which we’re calling Ages.

Each Age will have its own theme, free content, and Battle Passes. This is a complete rethinking of how Conan Exiles will continue to expand – with more evenly paced content drops and an easy way for any of you to support the game’s growth and receive exclusive themed cosmetics.

Challenges are a new set of rotating tasks that you can complete to advance in the Battle Pass to earn new rewards. They range from a variety of objectives that often involve events, another new kind of encounter that make the Exiled Lands and Isle of Siptah more alive and dangerous than ever.

Alongside the Battle Passes, we’re also releasing the Bazaar, an item store that makes paid DLC content easier to access and browse. With the Bazaar, we want to give each of you more granular choice in what you want to buy. Keep in mind that nothing is changing in terms of the type of things you can buy; nothing relating to player power can be found in the Bazaar. Now, on to Sorcery! Hyah!

Sorcery

It’s really happening! Sorcery will arrive in the Exiled Lands. Evil forces swell in the dark corners and deep places of the world. All it needs is a hand to grasp it.

In Age of Sorcery, you will be given the choice to sacrifice your life force in return for corrupting sorceries that take a whole range of forms. It’s an entire system that can be built upon for Ages to come.



Keep in mind that this is a dark, creeping kind of magic, requiring both preparation and a pinch of madness. You will not be slinging fireballs or magic missiles. You will, on the other hand, raise new demonic allies, conjure darkness, call down storms, and much more.

Attributes Improvements

Even if you remain a true sorcery-loathing barbarian down to your bones, you will have new powers to choose between, thanks to our attributes overhaul. With Age of Sorcery, you will be able to specialize your character by choosing between two powerful perks at every other attribute milestone.

Those who choose the dark path of sorcery can infuse their strength, vitality, and charisma with corruption. If you put in enough points to reach a perk milestone, that perk will be replaced by a special sorcery perk.



Overall, attributes are also receiving some changes in what they affect. We’ll have more on this in a future article.

Building Revamp

We’ve gone big on building, too! With Age of Sorcery, building will receive its very own dedicated interface, making it easier than ever to build, both on keyboard and controller.

Most players spend a lot of time building all manner of incredible things, and it’s a tool we feel had a lot of untapped potential, so it was high on our list for things to improve.



The only thing you’ll need on your shortcut bar is the construction hammer, as building pieces are placed immediately in the world through the building window without the need to craft them first. We can’t wait to get this tool into your hands to see what you’ll build.

Creative Mode

We’re not stopping at the building revamp! We want all of you to build the way you want. Accessible directly from the game’s main menu, the new Creative Mode grants you unprecedented freedom to build without costs or restrictions. Soar through the world and raise cities like some glorious efficient construction god.

Follower Updates

Followers will also see several changes. With the advent of sorcery, Exiles will be able to ensnare demons and undead as followers. “Isn’t that risky,” you ask? To that we answer, “Would that stop you?”

We’ve also tweaked balancing, reducing follower health overall and tied follower damage to the Charisma attribute. Oh, and did we mention the demon followers?



That’s it for now, but we have a lot more to cover before the update comes out. We’ll do that in a series of articles where we cover the major topics separately. The update is coming this year. Look out for a more accurate date down the line, and play the Testlive build when it becomes available soon.

We hope you’re as excited for the future of Conan Exiles as we are. This is a huge milestone for the game, and the first of many more. ]]>

Screenshots taken by the incredible Liderpina!
Whether it’s for practicality, role playing, or simply wanting to look badass, what you wear makes the barbarian. Styling your character and making it unique is a large part of Conan Exiles, and throughout the 4 years, we’ve seen some absolutely incredible looks. For this year’s anniversary, we want to celebrate that!


We want you to ransack your closet and dress your best in this contest! There are two main categories: modded and unmodded. You can choose which of these you’d like to enter. Your entry will be judged on the following criteria: creativity, overall cohesion, and theme. The judges will consist of the Funcom community team as well as Exile volunteers from the community.

Judgment will be on the outfit and character (clothes/hair/tattoos) alone. Pose, photo composition, or background of the entry will not be counted as we want the main focus to be on the outfit. But please make sure the whole outfit can be seen clearly for the judges!

The outfit you are submitting does not need to specifically be YOUR character, but it needs to be the outfit you have selected and put together. This is helpful if you need a model to take better pictures, for example.



All entries must be submitted by May 20, 2022 11:59 PM. We will not accept any entries after this date. Winners will be announced on May 30, 2022 1:00 PM. Entries must be submitted through this email address: contest@funcom.com. More info on how to submit below.

Charge into a crazy adventure as Conan, Valeria, Belit, or Pallantides, each with their unique upgradable skill trees, and stop the evil wizard Thoth-Amon.

Let loose your most dramatic war cry as you mash that chop button, through endlessly varied magically generated maps bursting with loot. You will die and rise again, a little richer, a little wiser, a little more fueled by vengeance.

What is best in life? CHOP, CHOP!

From Abe to Abe, sporting some of that self love.



A card from toniapiromali, who kneels before King Conan but fell in love with the guardian beside him, mixalisj5. Instead of using words, their feelings were conveyed through a handwritten drawing.


This letter from Exile Prometeo to a furry Yeti touched our hearts.

Trimming official servers https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1183/trimming-official-servers/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1183/trimming-official-servers/ Mon, 14 Feb 2022 12:41 CET
Conan Exiles had a year of solid growth in 2021, and with what’s on the horizon we’re very excited about 2022 too! However, before we get to all that exciting new stuff, we have some house cleaning to do.

TLDR: we need to reduce the number of official PC and PlayStation servers.

Why?
The goal with the official servers is to provide easy access to exciting gameplay in Conan Exiles through meeting and interacting with other players, whether there is PvP or more friendly encounters. On these servers, travelling across the Exiled Lands or the Isle of Siptah should include encounters with other players and their creations, whether a massive fortress or our beloved default 2x2 hut near the river.

Both with early access in 2017 and when Conan Exiles launched back in 2018 official servers filled to the brim. Then players found their preferred play hours, and server population stabilized at a healthy level. The same happened with Isle of Siptah servers when the expansion launched last year.

But official servers have their limitations. We have more than a thousand of them across the different platforms, regions, modes, and now maps. To keep this manageable we run all of them with default settings. Many players seek a different experience with regards to gathering and XP rates, purges, player limits, et al., and of course – on PC – one or more of the amazing mods the community has created.

Over the years, and even over the few months since Isle of Siptah launched, we have seen a continuous shift toward player-run servers and solo/co-op play. While activity in the game is higher than ever (outside of those crazy release months), several official servers see few players online during any given week.Less than a handful players on a server doesn’t provide the experience they were created for, especially when a server is essentially someone’s solo game. Hence why we will consolidate onto fewer servers.

How does it work?
Perhaps most importantly, we will not just shut off the power to servers and leave it at that. When a server is shut down, we will transfer all characters – active or not – to another server along with everything in their inventory. This transfer is not subject to the “no encumbrance” rule which applies to free transfers[www.conanexiles.com]. However, transferred characters log in at the starting area so bring something to help you carry!

No constructions will be transferred. We realize this is not optimal. The main concern is that there can be a building in the same spot on the destination server already – especially on the popular PvP server base spots. Another is that this would complicate the database merge operation significantly.

Players on a server which is closing will be notified ahead of time through Message of the Day, and we will also provide a list of servers and dates here as they are decided on.

How many servers?
Having looked at the current player activity trends and making projections for that exciting new stuff to come later this year, we aim to close about one third of official servers.

This is not distributed evenly across platform, region, mode, and map, however. Thanks to the success of Conan Exiles on Game Pass, Xbox servers are well populated, and we will only close a few Xbox servers that were opened in the wrong region last summer. Thus, this almost exclusively affects PC and PlayStation servers.

Exact numbers for each of the combinations of platform, region, mode, and map varies greatly, and will be available once we share the servers and dates.

How are the servers decided?
  • Characters from a closed server will be merged to another server in the same location. For example, someone connecting to a server on the US east coast will not have to suddenly connect to one on the west coast.
  • Goal is to impact as few players as possible, so low population throughout January 2022 is the primary factor. Both average and peak population is considered, with most weight on the former.
  • Among low populated servers, we put some weight on the number of structures on the server.
  • Destination servers for the character merge are chosen based on population, with the aim of increasing average population across the board and not creating login queues.
What about the future?
The shift toward private servers and games and a more customized game experiences is expected to continue. But we also expect Conan Exiles to continue to grow. How exactly that will pan out over the next year and beyond is hard to predict.

It’s possible we will do more closures in the future. It’s also entirely possible we will need to open new servers! This we will have to come back to sometime after that exciting stuff we can’t say more about just yet.]]>

Conan Exiles 2021 Year in Review: Producer's Letter https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1179/conan-exiles-2021-year-in-review-producer-s-letter/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1179/conan-exiles-2021-year-in-review-producer-s-letter/ Thu, 03 Feb 2022 20:26 CET
2021 has been an incredibly exciting and challenging year for us here on the Conan Exiles team. We started off the year preparing for the final release of our first expansion map, Isle of Siptah. The team was able to improve the Siptah map with your feedback during Early Access by adding NPC camps, Points of Interest, and activities. The team also added two amazing biomes in preparation for the final release on all platforms. We really enjoyed working on Siptah, despite the challenges that working from home during the pandemic presented.



Ultimately, we feel the final result is something we can be proud of, and your feedback and support made this journey feel all the more rewarding. The official launch on all platforms was met with an overwhelming amount of support from you all, as we achieved the highest concurrent player count since the game’s release. The launch campaigns we ran along with Siptah, such as the Twitch Drops and the Community Challenge, were also incredibly well received, paving the way for other possible future promotions.

In 2021 we also hit two important milestones as we released on two additional storefronts. First, on the Microsoft Store as part of the PC and Xbox Gamepass subscription. Getting to this point took a colossal amount of work from our teams, to who I want to wholeheartedly thank for their efforts, as well as to the Microsoft and Xbox teams who made this possible. We also drastically improved performance of the Xbox One client and received the Optimized for Series X|S badge resulting in Conan Exiles looking better than ever on consoles! Later in the year we released on the Epic Game Store and were able to bring Conan Exiles to another audience with full cross platform support for all PC stores. Once again, this was made possible thanks to the support of our friends at Epic Games.



With an eye on the future, we’ve also spent a good portion of the year planning and figuring out the best way to support our game for the long run. We are committed to Conan Exiles, it’s one of the greatest successes we have had at Funcom and we want it to become the best it can be. For that purpose, we have been growing our staff over the year and created a new Live team that is dedicated to the maintenance, support, and daily operations of the game. Thanks to this, we’ve been able to focus on addressing your feedback regarding critical bugs and Quality of Life additions that had been not possible in the past. We have also dedicated a team to provide support to our amazing modders, creating direct lines of communication with them so we can keep improving the devkit to better suit our community of creators. And this is just the beginning. We are committed to keep growing and adapting to support Conan Exiles on what will be one of its most exciting years.

I can’t wait to spill the beans on what is coming in the future, but for now let’s celebrate this past year with some facts and statistics about last year for Conan Exiles: We can confidently say that 2020 and 2021 were the most successful years for Exiles based on player counts and player activity. The development and launch of Isle of Siptah revitalized interest for veterans, and also gathered the attention of new players. And it didn’t stop there! The last quarter of 2021 also showed a surge in activity thanks in great part to the release of our in-game event “Grave Matters”. We’ve been keeping close attention to its reception and what you had to say about it. Thanks in great part to all your positive feedback, we’re planning for more events in the future so keep an eye out!



Another front we have seen positive growth with the game has been with streaming. Thanks to the new content added to the game and our campaigns, especially the Twitch Drops campaign, we’ve seen the viewership numbers hit an all-time high, even surpassing early access and the official launch period! We’re happy to say that we’ve improved our active player base and presence on streaming platforms and 2021 has been our strongest year to date. It’s been a year of experimentation on our end and we’re incredibly thankful to all of you for rewarding us back with your support which we are using to shape our plans to make 2022 even better!

As a final note, we have been celebrating the past year with a series of videos covering the {LINK REMOVED} to the game, a {LINK REMOVED} -both veterans and newcomers alike- and a {LINK REMOVED} that made an impact for our community in 2021. Make sure to give them a watch! And if you like numbers, we also published {LINK REMOVED} about statistics collected during Isle of Siptah’s launch week. You barbarians.



Thank you all for being part of our community and for having made 2021 one of the best years in Conan Exiles’ life. Here’s to 2022 and beyond!]]>
PC Update 2.8 (26.01.2022) https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1177/pc-update-28-26012022/ https://conan-exiles.com/blog/1177/pc-update-28-26012022/ Wed, 26 Jan 2022 13:45 CET

Greetings, Exiles!

We’re kicking off 2022 with our new update! 2.8 is bringing two oft-requested features: server queues and emotes for followers!

Coming with 2.8 is the ability to assign emotes to your followers! Whether you want them to look more alive, or stage the new and hottest choreography this side of the Exiled Lands, this feature will bring new life to your army! Along with it, we have worked on a bevy of new emotes you can learn by interacting with new locations on both game maps, both for human followers and for pets. Groovy!



On the other hand, server queues will let you join a server that’s full without the need to smash that join button for minutes! Instead, you will now be automatically sent to a queue with other fellow Exiles trying to access the same server and you’ll join once a spot is available! This is also customizable via server settings in case you want this feature disabled or tweaked in your private server.



And bundled with these additions come a myriad of new fixes and Quality of Life changes that we hope will make your adventures in the Exiled Lands (and Isle of Siptah) more enjoyable.

Thanks once again for your continued feedback and support and stay safe. After all, 2022 will be a very exciting year for Conan Exiles!


IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING MODS

Please remember that updates can mess with the functionality of your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed.





  • Server Queues!


Join your favorite server in style. While you can still frantically smash that join button, we offer a less barbaric solution by just letting you wait politely in a queue.
Keep that frantic energy to see your enemies driven before you and hear the lamentation of the other Exiles in the queue.



  • Follower Emotes!


Tired of your followers staring into the void while at your base? Give them some workout to do with our new feature!
Assign emotes to them, both previous and new, and inject new life into your fief!





  • Server queues!
  • Follower emotes!
  • … new emotes!
  • Tons of QoL and bugfixes!


Currently known issues
  • We are aware Microsoft Store users may not see patches downloading and installing automatically. The only known workaround is to uninstall and reinstall the game. Unfortunately this process is out of our hands, but we are pushing for a fix to it.


  • Fixed a number of crashing issues. This should result in better game stability.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the game to crash after starting a coop game.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause rain to affect performance significantly.
  • Fixed a number of crashes in the EGS and Microsoft Store versions of the game when downloading mods.

  • Fixed a number of exploits regarding stamina consumption and undermeshing.
  • It should no longer be possible to place fence foundations too close to each other by exploiting building mechanics. Read more about this fix in this separate post[forums.funcom.com].

  • Added new queuing system when joining a server. When attempting to join a server that is currently full, you will automatically be queued.
    - New UI elements now show your queued status, as well as your position in the queue.
    - Two new server settings have been added to control this new feature: EnableLoginQueue (default True), and DisconnectionGraceTime (default 180, in seconds).
  • It is now possible to assign emotes to followers!
    - Humanoid NPCs can now generally play any of the existing player-learned emotes.
    - Scattered across the Exiled Lands and Isle of Siptah, you can now find new interactables that will unlock new emotes you can assign to your followers and pets!

  • The Nemedian Frame will now leave a ghost item when the last in the stack is used up.
  • Stage floors should now be possible to place next to door frames and fence foundations.
  • Raised the Large Campfire and all Tanneries up slightly to make them flush with the ground when placed.
  • Fixed an issue in regards to Gate Frames losing stability when placed under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a number of building issues reported during the Testlive period.
  • Fixed a critical issue that caused placeables to lose stability under specific circumstances.

  • Fixed a number of issues that caused some feats to be missing after learning them under specific circumstances.

  • Fixed an issue where left-hand sided attacks from a mounted rhino would not cause damage.
  • Fixed a rare issue where thralls would remain in a state where they could not attack nor get attacked under specific circumstances.
  • You asked, we delivered: The ranged attack of Spitting Spiders has now been fixed and your nightmares can finally be fueled from a distance.

  • Mammoths now rotate in a less janky way.
  • Shaggai Horror pets now have a projectile for their ranged attack.
  • Rhinos should no longer moonwalk out of combat, probably making this the most sad and disappointing patchnote line since the potion of endowment nerf.
  • NPCs should no longer move when performing ranged attacks.
  • The Undead nations of the Sanctuary of the Serpent signed a treaty and thus, Undead Archers and Undead Hyenas should no longer attack each other. For now.
  • Fixed additional issues where thralls and NPCs would spawn with XX_Unarmed in their inventory.
  • Kraxus will now spawn where he’s supposed to at the rate he’s supposed to, the Bastard.
  • Thralls should no longer randomly fall through Nemedian Hatch Doors.
  • Thralls that have been knocked down should no longer forget their guarding location.
  • Thralls should now be able to engage with giant enemies correctly, instead of getting confused at the complex concept of a straight line.

  • Fixed an issue where the Purge would spawn inside Treehouse bases.

  • Gold nodes should now require a minimum of 2 chops instead of 1, to avoid Exiled Cryptobros making this the new gold-seeking fad.

  • Replacing a building piece will now give you back the piece if it is at full health, or the equivalent dismantle materials if the piece is damaged.
  • Swapped the input mapping when using bows with a controller to be more intuitive. You now aim with the left trigger, and shoot with the right trigger. A new setting lets you use the old system (“Invert Bow Controls”).

  • Khitai Scout Saddle should now show the correct colors.
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent an NPC to show up if a mod saved data onto it and such mod was removed from the game by the player.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the camera to stop controlling movement while hanging/climbing under specific circumstances.
  • Unlocked fast travel locations should no longer be lost when transferring servers.
  • War Sickles should sheath correctly now.
  • The Sandstorm should no longer kill players in the Broken Highway if they have not crossed it yet, or if they load in that area while a Sandstorm is ongoing.
  • Some hair colors showed incorrectly. This has now been fixed. #abouttime
  • Fixed a number of issues in regards to the Server Queues system reported during Testlive.
  • Addressed a number of issues reported during Testlive related to the Follower Emotes system.
  • Fixed a visual issue found during Testlive where certain NPCs would have missing torso textures.
  • Fixed several issues found in regards to Grave Matters.

  • Fixed a number of visual imperfections across Siptah locations.
  • The Scorpion Den will now evict players that log out to the start of the dungeon, and will respawn dead players there as well.
  • We let it go and it should no longer snow inside the Temple of Frost.

  • NPCs should now play certain threaten emotes when engaging or about to engage a target.
  • Pieces that are picked up and returned to the inventory at full health should no longer show dismantling animations/debris.
  • Did we mention that we added new emotes for followers and pets?

  • Bravely pausing their hourly wheel of pain sessions, our #spellchekker team fixed another round of typos and grammar errors. Since there will probably be more typos out there that they missed, they’ve gone back to their mandatory exercises until further notice. #stillhiring
  • Stamina should no longer show less than 0 on the GUI.
  • Stormglass gate frame can no longer be climbed and mantled.

  • Added new filter on the server browser to filter results based on queue size.
  • Updated the credits section of the game.
