I’m not some youtube celebrity who gets hot girls from weekly conan exiles video updates.
So I’m not gonna sit here, present some egghead scientific argument about pvp, based on fact.
I’m just a regular dude. I like my whiskey cold and my wings hot. I like the Conan genre.
Rock, Flag and Eagle, amirite?
Now the current PvP community is trying to assassinate the meta.
And I can’t change their mind.
I won’t change my mind, 'cause I don’t have to.
'Cause I’m an casual PvPer.
Last night on our official server, we decided to go PvP in the server arena. The rule was bring what you would bring if you’re just out adventuring.
No one would loot corpses.
Between 8 of us, we tried every weapon combo, armor combos, etc.
The victor came out to be venom infused sword and shield. The player would light stab and roll out. Leaving 4 venom, 2 poison to trickle down your health.
The best fight of the night was sword and board vs bow and arrow. A good 10min fight where eventually, snb got the critical hit.
Finally, we used the severed arm, shields and servered 2h leg, and did a a battle royal, free for all in the arena.
To my surprise, using purified flesh as my healing item, I managed to win it using the 2h severed leg, which acts like a hammer.
Point is, there doesn’t seem to be a meta, short of poison stacks, but that can be countered if you think ahead.
I think with enough practice, any weapon you choose can be the meta. Right armor, right weapon, right study…
I think I saw @zerog mention face tanking in heavy armor and a hammer, and after last night’s win, I’m personally inclined to believe its viability.
I’ll do better documentation in the coming weeks as I’m tasked with creating a new server public arena.
