Male NPC's NEVER Have Beards!

Game mode: [Offline | Singleplayer]
Problem: [ Bug ]
Region: [Here]


Has anyone else in the community noticed that the male NPCs never, and I mean EVER spawn in with Beards or facial hair…? This wouldnt be intended surely…would it!? I am now wondering if other platforms and officials have this ‘issue’ or not. While I strongly commend the men of the Exiled Lands impeccable sense of grooming and presentatation, and their dedication to personal upkeep, I would just like them to know that it IS ok to have a beard if they want to, and that we will not judge them harshly for it. Poor Jack Passion would be beside himself…

Can anyone shed some light, and possibly a fix on this closely cut caper…?


Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Play Conan Exiles since launch day on ps4
  2. Traverse the biomes of the Exiled Lands
  3. Notice that not one man has EVER had a Beard
    3a.(Optional) If you have one yourself, feel like the odd man out
  4. Feel bad for them…
  5. Encourage Funcom to help them see the error of their ways

Hi @Croms_Faithful, thank you for bringing this to our attention, we’ll send note to the developers about the questionable fashion trends of the exile lands!

My pleasure Hugo! And thankyou for the reply. As a man who sports a long beard himself, I only regret that I failed to have this cognizance prior to now. Universally clean shaven barbarians…surely this cannot stand.

No in all seriousness, I am guessing that this was not intended. Can you think of a Thrall (any) who should have a Beard of the top of your head? (No pun intended) Im rather curious about this one now.

Don’t recall having met any thrall sporting a fine beard in recent sessions.

Tis a fine beard and an even finer warrior, but sure is no thrall. :laughing: Well certainly not anymore. Hopefully our thralls wont have to appoint themselves King before they will resolve to wear a beard.

Thanks Hugo!

Do no male NPCs spawn with Beards on officials too @Zeb!? I will also check with @sestus2009 and @WhatMightHaveBeen. I have accepted that Hugo has submitted it for checking/fixing. This is more just to satisfy my own curiosty as to whether it is unique to my mode or platform. Although I am starting to think not.

Just to be thorough, we should check to see if the female thralls are spawning with beards as well😀

Never really seen one with the beard. Guess NPC’s have better barbers :slight_smile:

No Thralls that I have ever come across have spawned with a beard. I think I brought this up once before myself, in a comment/question. I also am curious, where are all the Thralls with white hair? My question is further cemented by the two dead NPCs found as props in game.

The male in Sep pinned to the wall as target practice.

As well as the female on the ground before you jump the broken bridge in the Wine Cellar.

The white haired dead girl is the same dead girl with white hair you found elsewhere around the biomes (e.g. the one in he cage with Razma’s journal in darfari camp), I think it’s a “standard object” for dead characters.

@Croms_Faithful Nope, no beard ever saw around all the biomes, not a single warrior has beard or mustaches .Da hell is wrong with those Asgardians? Did they lose their roots? ^^

For what I can say I also never saw a single female NPC with the bald/long hair ponytail… wait, not even the “normal ponytail”.
Maybe those are gone with the beards!

I’ve noticed that all males don’t have beards. With the renaming of thralls I started going through all the males and couldn’t find any. Hopefully this will be fixed in future updates.

Well I have not seen any males with beards, and I play on 6 servers all official ones. I have came across guys wearing pink and white and light purple on one server. As they seem to change their clothes daily as after each restart they come back with a new color. LOL guess they want to be clean and they means clean shaved to.

Well…I think it is safe to say there are currently no NPCs with beards on ps4. Just for the sake of one last check and inquiry I will ask a few of our PC bretheren, then I will leave this in the hands of the developers. @Larathiel and @CodeMage have either of you ever seen NPCs with beards on PC…?

Not sure. Let me start paying attention to that and get back to you :slight_smile:

The only one on my server with a beard is me and my Avatar and they are both grey.

I was just wondering this myself. Also the female thralls only spawn with specific hair styles. I have only found 1 npc with white hair but its a volcano miniboss.

As I said in reply to the “@mostfaithfulguyweknowaboutCrom” no female NPC has ponytail hairstyles, not the “haired one” nor the bald version, (maybe not even “complete” bald females are around now that I’m thinking 'bout it?).
