Game mode: both Online and Single-Player
I’ve been playing Conan Exiles regularly since it was released as a free PSN+ game, and have had no issues except with Purges, which is honestly the game mechanic I was most excited about. I love building a base and preparing its defenses for enemy attackers. But since I’ve gotten the game, I have only experienced 3.5* purges through all game modes (*the half is because I got one that was bugged and no enemies showed up, so essentially I finally filled the purge bar, and it glitched and didn’t work). I experienced one in a private server which worked completely fine, 2.5 more in an official server 3501, and none in single-player (although I don’t play that much).
The problem I experience is that my purge bar grows excruciatingly slow on official servers. I’ve played months at a time where I log on consistently every day for at least 3.5 hours (farming mats, crafting, building, and killing animals, aka playing the game like normal). My purge bar does go up, but super slowly. I’ve been in the same server with other friends in different clans that play less than me that have filled their purge bars in 2-3 days just by themselves. Every player I meet, and every forum I see online talking about purges makes it seem like others get them usually every other day or at the very least weekly if they play regularly. I have tried every tip I’ve seen online, and nothing has helped. I’ve experienced this on 4 separate official servers, but primarily on 2 main ones (3501 and 3512). This has led me to believe that maybe my PSN profile is bugged with purges or something, and thus why I am reaching out now.
In server 3501, I had previously been solo in no clan (my purge bar does seem to work, but extremely slowly like I have said), but I found some advice that creating a clan would help, so I did that, and just have a clan of one. After doing so, my purge bar went to 0 (was previously at 1/3 full after 2 months of consistent play), and for the past 2 days (in which I have played probably a total of 8 hours - building T3 structures, farming, and killing animals), the purge bar has not gone up at all and still remains at 0.
I don’t understand what is happening, and I just want my purges to work like everybody else. What do I do to fix this?
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- Boot up Conan Exiles
- Play the game
- Experience extremely slow purge growth (and now no purge growth)
- Never experience a purge
