Thank you dictionary for that description.
The perk system in Conan Exiles while could be very excellent does need work in my opinion, if not change the “perks” then give it another name like, let’s say “Roll of the dice” or something (just came up with that, very proud of myself.)
Seeing as perks are something that makes something better or helps something get better at what it does, rewards even, the perks i’m seeing and have been getting on thralls that I spend considered time to get from 0-20 are honestly getting me riled up.
I level a Dalinsia Snowhunter and out of three I tried now recently all got -x to strength and plus to agility or survival, the latest one got +3 STR as first perk and the last one gave -3 STR and +8 survival.
This would be like, for you working at Funcom be like "We’re gonna give everyone a pay cut BUT! we set up a painting in the office to help you get through the day.
Would be like giving your cook a very nice computer but take away his cooking equipment, seeing as he is suppose to be cooking, but now has no equipment to cook, but a computer he doesn’t know how to use, this is just an example, if you have a cook working over there i’m sure he or she is great.
Another example from in-game is I have a thrall, meant to be big and scary and hit really really hard but then he gets a “perk” saying that this thrall, who has never, ever held a bow in his hands now gets +x amount for archery, but he has to forfeit strength to be able to use that bow, that he doesn’t have nor will ever have.
I’m sure this topic has come and gone and is on-going and gonna come back up again so if not change the way the “perks” work like only archer fighters can get archery points and fighters don’t get archery points anymore basically then at least change the name of that system.
Even if just take away the chance of getting -x stats so like you get +5 STR but -8 survival, then just have it +5STR as an example.
You have my permission to change “Perks” to “Roll of the dice” or something similar.
