Hello FunCom and fellow players. I pre ordered my Conan Exiles on PS4, since midnight release I have not stopped playing. I never thought I’d love the game so much and too learn that it’s not even the final master piece has me excited. We are expected sorcery, settlements, mounts, pets and all sorts in the future. I can’t wait! However I’ve been trying to find a suggestions and feedback to the Devs in the forum’s and had no luck finding so I’m shooting in the dark here and opening my own topic in hopes the Devs find it and read it.
If so, FunCom Devs of the Conan Exiles, I f’ing love your work so far, warts n all. There are several things and bugs I hope you will address and improve the game even more. I understand it’s still in its diapers and beginning to walk, it’s a fragile stage. One wrong update and you could ruin your current population of gamer’s for quite some time. Forgive my rambling but back to the matter at hand. Archery for starters, now I know this has been an issue for most people’s, it’s too simple in a bad way, the arrows drop very fast, there is no lock on range for bows at a distance and the firing mechanics are a little dull. I’ve been practicing the bow to see if I can improve on it but so far there barely seems to be any improvement overall, I can’t hunt, even headshots don’t help overall. I can’t chase my prey because firing and moving had the arrows flying all over the place like running and gunning hipshot on a first person shooter. Perhaps a rework of archery, for example Skyrim had amazing archery but that could be too complex, but since the combat on Exiles is that similar to Assassin’s Creed Origins, perhaps use that as an example.
Another reason for my topic is an elastic band effect when in combat with several enemies on an online server, I roll away to avoid their attacks just to snap back and be surrounded and wedged in-between enemies and watch my health drop like crazy. I hope this can be fixed someday. Also some weapons offer no benefits what so ever, the one handed may let you use a torch but the combo attacks even when mixed are somewhat useless, some of your attacks miss even when stood right next to the enemy. The spear seems quite over powered, be it player or NPC it is near impossible to stagger the enemy or evade their attack and attack. Not just the spear but on some NPC’s overall, sometimes attacks don’t seem to stagger them at all when it staggers others. I’m not sure if that’s intentional or what but it has made things more complicated then necessary.
I’m sorry if it seems like I’m just complaining but I really love this game and only want to see it improve for the better. I pray you guys will make this a game all other survival sandbox games become envious of. Thank you for bringing this game into my life. I look forward to see it grow and become the talk of many gamer’s.
