PC Patch (08.10.2019) - The Wine Cellar, new animations, Debaucheries of Derketo and more!

Greetings Exiles!

We got a new patch with another slice of free new content: The Wine Cellar dungeon. Unveil the dark secrets of the past unearthed by the greed of the Relic Hunters, who in their rally for treasure awakened a long forgotten civilization better left in the past!

We’ve also introduced new optimizations for inventories that should help performance and stability alike, new idle animations to increase immersion as well as the usual round of general bugfixes. We can’t wait for all of you to try out this new content and give us your opinion in the comments below!

And last but not least, we’re also releasing the next DLC pack: The Debaucheries of Derketo. To see all there’s included in it, you can check out the launch announcement here! This new pack is included for Year 2 Season pass owners and can be also be purchased separately.

Thanks again for all your feedback and support.


Please remember that updates can mess with your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed.

Separate TestLive Product on Steam

We heard your input regarding the inconvenience with having to switch back and forth between the main game and our TestLive servers. To make it easier for you and because we really value your testing and feedback, we added a separate product for the TestLive server on Steam.

If you own Conan Exiles on Steam, you should now see a separate Product called “Conan Exiles - Testlive Client” in your library which gives you the option to install an additional instance of the game specifically for the TestLive servers. Please be aware that this will prompt you for a full additional installation.

We are aware that not everyone wants install or has space for two full installations. For those of you who don’t want to play through the additional TestLive Client, you can still access the TestLive servers through our old method.

One question, emotes mentioned in dlc are dlc exclusive?.

Ok, just realized emotes are exclusive in the dlc. Good job funcom… (irony implied).

Thanks for all the fixes anyway. Now to see all those with dlc in my rp server enjoy the emotes while I watch.

Why the Gear from the “Blood and Sand” DLC change to Winter :frowning:

Why would all relic hunter treasure seekers have 100 health!? And be performers?? And all their gear and weapons for placed relic hunters are now missing?

3 Likes

Yes, this. Now they’re performers with 100 health, won’t follow, and can’t remove armor or weapons…

Also, why are thralls making so much noise? I can hear them coughing and sighing constantly? I want to shoot them.

Dear me funcom.

Please tell me you haven’t re-visited the Vathis problem again.

Great work and thanks, as always, to the FunCom Dev/Art Devs. I do wish that the general build mechanics underlying the DLC Tree Foundations and the Bridgeworks did allow for extending from start point to more build-blocks out as there are not so many trees close enough together to allow seamless building.

It’s early days so am guessing the Fan-art pages will show great builds and bridge applications very soon.

Echoing Firespark, it is a shame that game mechanics do not allow for clicking the start point and being able to ‘drag’ out to the terminating side.

Bar stuff very nice for Admins. Have not experimented that much yet. Am guessing colour changes not much of an option?

The idle movements are nice (& startling first time round)

Any mods?

Official server, no mods.

Not sure if this is happening to anyone else but in the new Dungeon I get 5-10FPS, tops. At some parts it goes up to 30 but 90% it’s super low. Doesn’t matter if it’s SP or MP.
Anyone else?

No mods here either.

Alright, thanks for the post. I’m not seeing issues in the dev kit yet, but will keep looking.

Servers need cleaned up 3601 on ps4 we have a clan building over all the brimstone nobody can stop them

You can place new treasure seekers that have the regular amount of health but all preplaced ones now only have 100 and have lost all armor and cannot be moved.

@Ignasis The announcment link is restricted. We only get this message:
