My concern is if my destruction of already decayed structures and items is potentially ruining someone’s Conan experience.
I play on an official server along side some very courteous individuals. Occasionally that’s not the case but regardless, people come and go and along with them their homes, supplies and thralls. I’m a bit of a scavenger of sorts, that I may swoop in by the time the decay timer starts and pick up their forgotten haul! Things like armour, decorative items and sometimes even DLC! Although I empty a base of most things I tend to leave their efforts of home making (set tables and cute patio gardens!) and I will always share my gains with others in my server! This is something I like to do; not only do I get to explore someone’s base but I get to open treasure box after treasure box!
I realised recently that the decay timer doesn’t always mean ‘dead and gone’ and sometimes players come back and in doing so, reset their base time (???). This has only happened on one occasion where I’ve emptied someone’s structure and then later found out they had made it juuust in time before the mass crumbling of hours of gameplay. There has been so many instances where it made sense not to waste what was going to be decayed anyway but after that, I wonder if I should stop entirely. I would hate to know I took advantage of someone’s time being away and for them to come back to an empty home. What do you think? Is it toxic? Sensible? Part of the game? I’d love to know! I want my being on the same server as others to be pleasant, friendly and helpful but if this does the opposite; I need to know. Thanks!
