The game at the moment is way too easy. This is supposed to be a survival game, but of all the survival games i have played Conan Exiles is by far the most easy one. In fact, the game is so easy that the only time you die in this game is when you stand on top of a mountain, get a lag spike and fall to your death. When you get lag inside vulcano when you try to jump over lava and you die. And when you get stuck in geometry while you are fighting mobs and you cant get away.
Since release of the game this is about the only times I have died. I have never died to something in the game that was challenging or difficult.
Some of the mobs and bosses in the game doesn’t do any damage to you at all. The Barrow King is so easy that you can kill him naked with a stone pickaxe. He doesn’t do any damage at all to players. The well of Skelos dungeon in the vulcano is a joke. The mobs and bosses in there doesn’t do any damage to you whatsoever. The last boss is so easy that is must either be a bug or a mistake from the devs. The Witch Queen is also so easy that you can do it solo in fiber gear and a stone weapon. Both Well of Skelos and the Witch Queen gives you lvl 60 recipes so you would think that they would be tuned for lvl 60 players. I don’t understand why Funcom has done it in this way. It makes no sense at all.
The Black keep is also flawed since you can just run in there naked and get all the recipes without even killing the boss. Since silent legion is the best armor set in the game, this doesn’t make any sense either.
Some of the world bosses hits you like a 5 year girl. The only challenge with the world bosses is to endure their huge health pool without dying from boredom.
The game was much more fun before the content rebalance. I don’t understand why they removed poison from so many spiders, made all the caves way too easy, and removed to cripple from mobs like hyenas.
I don’t understand why they made the swamp a low level area either. We already had the whole desert area as low level area, we didn’t need more. When you reach lvl 60 you just run around one hitting everything. There is nothing in the game that can kill you when you reach 60 and you get proper gear.
When I play a survival game I want survival to be hard. I want brutal monsters to kill me, and I want to struggle to stay alive. Atm, there is nothing in Conan Exiles that warrant use of the term “survival game”. Conan Exiles is a pvp building game maybe, but its not a proper survival game.
Please make the game harder and more brutal Funcom. This is supposed to be Hyboria after all.
