I am currently enjoying Conan Exiles alot. I am on a Official PvP Server and the combination of “being creative” with the Building and Decoration System but still enjoying a Adventure in a World with a wonderful setting and story background and Social Interaction with other Gamers in Good or Confrontational Ways .
I think they are already very unique in the way the Game is in the “Survival Genre”.
Back when i tried ARK - the main focus on that Game was all about Pets, Pets, Pets, and more Pets…
I did not like that - it actually turned me off.
So it is understandable that i am actually very nervous about the Upcoming Update that will introduce “Taming” to us.
I actually did like that we did not have all those Animals to jump on and everywhere you go these Pets behind you.
It is of course my personal preference.
But for me the world of Conan feels already cool enough with the Thralls and the Feature of having NPC following you.
This differanciate us from ARK.
I truly hope this Game will not end up with uncountable Pets parking in front of Houses everywhere and feeling like a “Animal Farm” Game.
So my hope is - it will be very hard to get alot of Pets - and that Pets will be the weaker option vs. Thralls.
I mean at the end those Pets may even be a danger for the unique Thrall Feature of Conan.
Also i am scared that the Faster Movement with a Tamed Animal as a riding option may reduce the “large sandbox world” feeling to much.
Faster movement will impact also the amount of times people engage with each other and how fast you can go back to restock and attack again…
I am expecting a huge impact on the Game with Taming coming and not sure if it will be for the good or bad for how i currently love htis game.
So . I am done. That was me sharing my concerns regarding the Taming coming.
Do not move to much into the direction of ARK… that is the summary of my feeling about Taming
