Apparently this hasn’t been brought up on the forums since 2019, so I thought it might be time for another go…
Please make purge decay optional / togglable or dependent on some condition which the player can deliberately proc. When I first started playing Conan I was totally addicted and managed to get a purge every few days, but since time has gone on and I now play the game casually I will never get another purge again.
I don’t care that the purge thralls are now unimportant, I just want a purge because it’s a fun and unique mechanic that used to make my day whenever one was expected. I also don’t want to have to join or form a large clan to enjoy this experience - my wife and I (used to) play Conan together, and this was our clan, until her aspiration for capturing every named thrall was shattered by… how you can’t get a purge unless you devote your whole life to grinding the meter each day by more than it will decay overnight. Also no, we’re not going to leave our PCs on overnight with the game idling.
At one point we made a private server with the purge trigger turned right down, but this doesn’t work either - the decay still wipes the meter overnight meaning you must grind for your purge trigger, and the purge itself refills the bar to the point that you can’t actually play dungeons, farm or build because you constantly get purges once they start. The Official server purge trigger setting would actually be perfect were it not for the decay.
All in all, mandatory purge decay simply removes from the game a really big part of the fun for small clans of casual players. Please consider revising this so all players can get to experience purges once in a while if they want them.
