My feedback of the game

This game sucks and it needs the key features promise at EA. Don’t get butt hurt at my feedback. My feedback is honest. And it my feedback. Don’t like it cover your eyes and pretend it doesn’t exist.

You can white knight a game for as long as you want. Map DLC over promised features is a bad company choice.

To be fair the game gotten better than original release date. And yeah mounts, let’s be honest horses are now in game. Pets are in.

Other open worlds I played?

Ark,Rust,Minecraft,Citadel forge with fire,No man sky, 7 days to die and many more. I am not comparing Conan Exiles to these other games.

How I rate a game. Age of game vs how stable it is. DLC and if the DLC breaks the game? Yes all the cosmic dlc breaks the game. Look at dlc armors and weapons stats. Is this game noob friendly? No! You can die quickly as a noob. Even none noobs can die quickly. Player vs the world? The player is weak. I don’t want to play as a god. I also don’t want to have a weak avatar/toon/created character. Ark suffers from having weak player stats too. Promised features vs age of game vs map and amount of dlcs in game. Too much dlc and too little of promise features like sorcery and settlement system. Two key selling points in Conan Exiles at EA.

Remember this is my feedback. My opinion of the game. So don’t get butt hurt over someone’s opinion.

There are some imbalances with the stats they provide but I would hardly call this “breaking the game”, 5 points of Vit, Str or Agility compared to 5 points of encumbrance won’t make such a difference that the non DLC player can’t win the fight under any circumstance.

Well, as a noob you need to learn the game first, obviously you will die a lot, that’s part of the experience. You say you play minecraft, I died like 100 times in my first world on normal difficulty years ago. For such a simple and beginner friendly design it was still quiet hard at times.
Conan Exiles was not my first survival game but the first one I thoroughly played and I never had the feeling I was being overwhelmed by the game’s difficulty (below I even say that I increased the difficulty).

I guess that depends on what you perceive as weak / strong. I honestly had no problems facing bosses alone with my character, even while having upped the NPC damage output to 2.5 or so. However, are the thralls too strong? I would say yes, they are still the heroes in combat while the player kinda plays the sidekick, that’s really annoying.
At the same time though, most bosses in this game pose their difficulty by being huge bullet sponges without any special mechanics, that’s my biggest issue with them.

As far as I know, sorcery was never said to definitely come to the game, it was all just “Yeah, maybe if we have the time and resources / ideas for it”.

What I’ve gathered from your post is you just aren’t very good at the game.

This is just my opinion, don’t get butt hurt.

I don’t belive :wink: that must have been horrible… I mean not hard, cool challenging horrible, just bad.
Even with full buffs, best gear character is not designed to beat bossess with such huge hp pool, not to even mention broken hitboxes, broken mechanics (some of them like big rock boss are impossible to kill without getting hit multiple times)

Definitelly agree, that’s biggest dealbraker pve for me. That’s why i always have the most fun starting at level 1, fighting some crocs etc but it gets just stupid when we hire thrall and can jsut do all content easily.

“The player is weak. I don’t want to play as a god. I also don’t want to have a weak avatar/toon/created character.”

This line particularly. The player isn’t weak, but they are expected to engage combat intelligently. Thralls have incredibly high HP because they have 0 intelligence, does this need to be pinned somewhere?

There’s no point in fighting with character as damage output is laughable and without a lot points in vit you will be one shotted most of the time by broken mechanic / too big hitbox. Only way to fight is let thrall do all job, great fun game.

Some players play the game without using combat thralls and do just fine.

I recommend finding a server with +player health and +player damage if you find the normal settings too hard.

I’m not criticizing anyone who thinks the game is too hard, I’ve seen many people on Reddit saying they feel it’s almost impossible to play solo, so it’s not a new complaint

Alternatively however I see plenty of people who talk about how the game offers no challenges and is too easy once you get out of extremely low levels

I don’t know what your build is but I deal only slightly less damage than my thrall, and because I can consistently hit combos I can promise you my damage output is higher. At 30 Vit I’m certainly not being one shotted.

Best armors are not in the dlcs

That’s the point of a survival game… to survive, remember?

Get better gear and stats and is pretty easy actually.

I’m glad those are not in the game tbh… but that’s my opinion.

I’m not sure if OP means the strictly cosmetic DLCs or is including Siptah. Siptah gear is definitely better than EL. The culture packs are definitely strictly cosmetic.

You know, that’s true, sometimes i forget that since they introduced server transfer that’s a thing now…

No, game is not hard. Its broken - broken hitboxes, broken mechanics, randomly stuck inside animals and most relevant enemies have so much hp it becomes chore. Surely you can do it but that’s not fun.

Even with all buffs that game has to offer it’s chore to kill bossess or stronger enemies. Good luck consistently hiting combos on broken bossess like rotbranch or now all thralls due to stagger broken patch.
Point is the thralls should not be stronger, doing all the work. They should be nerfed and player characters should be buffed a bit. Not gonna try solo without thrall one dragon boss for example when i can just send thrall, jump on rock and I can promise he will do it faster even if you manage to keep combos most of the time not getting staggered / knocked.

A couple of bosses having poorly thought out attack patterns is hardly indicative of the PC being weak.

The humanoid stun change has been far less of an issue than I originally thought it would be. I clear top tier surges exactly as quickly as I did before.

Well… then you should definitely stop playing this game because it must be at the bottom of your list :rofl:

Yeah that’s unfortunate true. Wish they fix most of issues.

Yet, we are still here, playing and caring about the game and crying at that cruel funcom team who tries to give us heart attacks with every new patch.
It’s really a mystery to me how this all works. Usually when a game is buggy, I just stop and I never had regrets about it. Now this one keeps pulling me despite its laughable state, so much that I can’t even play the new games I buy.

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that funcom has moved the budget allocated to bug fixing into a specialized psychology department who found the exact balance of new bugs and bug fixing that will keep us hooked in a perpetual love/hate/patch loop. But then they don’t monetize the game, so it stops making sense… :roll_eyes:

The game is not bad, it’s just not polished and broken besides that there’s no other game like this except rust, ark but there’s gunplay which kills most of fun for many people.

I think they just focused on dune now and most of resources is there.
