Unfair creature farming method and addition of new servers

1- First of all, will a sanction be applied to people who farm unfairly because of the game gap?
2- Will new pvp servers be opened

What is farming unfairly?


Looks like Conan on PC has hackers.

When you said farming I thought you ment mining rocks/iron.

Are you seeing something that I am not? All I see is people standing on a rock where they can’t be reached and farming mobs with poison arrows. It is pretty cheesy but you don’t really have to be a hacker to do it.


Using a game vulnerability is a criminal offense

This is an exploit. Game was not meant to be played this way. Furthermore it affects server stability. This should be reported, not heavily abused.
In games like World of Warcraft, if you do this sort of thing, affect server stability on purpose for whatever reason be it personal gains or just for fun, you get a permanent ban.
These are not just people standing on a rock. These are exploiters who ruin other players game time by causing heavy latency on purpose for personal gain.


Something needs to be done about this eventually. It lags out the entire server when players do it. Not sure what the solution is but I’m sure Funcom will come up with something eventually.


It has been reported though and brought to the attention of the devs. I was commenting on the post that called these people hackers. :slight_smile: They may be abusing a mechanic but this has nothing to do with hacking.


Well since he posted the video afew hours after my comment no I didnt see it at the time…

I think you may be on to something here @dorizzdt. We had a player calling the server in for a big group battle with the Eldritch Horrors, saying that the more players that showed up, the more they could spawn yet be safe from dying. We can only guess how the players were guaranteed safety.

So here’s what happened during their event: a clan mate died of thirst and hunger without any onscreen visual effects or warnings. They also could not heal, would consume potions and get no animation or healing. He logged in and out but the issues still remained.

Standing on a rock or structure to shoot gas at mobs is an exploit. In no way combat was designed to function like this and I can’t imagine the game designer thinking: “oh yeah, you can totally kill mobs while taking a higher ground, while these mobs give you a blank stare. That’s so real life level of immersive”
In games like Fallout 4, this was seen as an exploit and it was adressed by having melee mobs run away from you and hide behind obstacles as soon as you had higher ground.
WIth Island of Siptah, I noticed that mobs will jump off platforms to chase you, which didn’t happened in the past. You can see that Funcom is trying to adress this situations and find ways for AI to better react to player cleverness(exploits).
Also, you don’t have to write an essay size topic to excuse exploiters. These types of players know fully well what they are doing. They go into the maelstrom aware that it will cause 1020 ping, and still do it, because their greed exceeds common sense.
Fortunely for everyone, Funcom stands behind their statement that they will rather fix an exploit than ban people, which is fine with me.
I’ve looked some more into this issue with the maelstrom, and the best temporary solution I would recommned would be to decrease the number of elder creatures from 200 to 10, for both ambush and ambiental types. This can be found in the server settings, under maelstrom section.


Not calling you out or anything. I just think this needs some extra emphasis. It’s not the standing on a rock part that makes it an exploit. It’s the fact that the AI doesn’t know what to do about it so it just stands there and let’s you shoot it in the face.

Funcom needs to teach mobs to climb - problem solved


Hackers? Ok lol.

All they are doing is standing on a ledge while demons keep spawning, and they aoe them with poison arrows.


Exploits are when you knowingly use a bug to further your own gain at the expense of others. People can dance around that all they want with semantics…they are exploiting the mechanics, they know they are… so don’t be that person.

Thats all moot. Funcom if they actually had active devs beyond art department, should fix this urgently given its effect on adoption of the DLC. Knowing Funcom though, they will wait a few more months before waking up from whatever budget slumber they exist in and attempt to fix it.

Honestly this company is the worst software development shop in the history of gaming. Such poor focus on their own product - no doubt this will be “hidden” because who dares to question the mother ship… its easier to kill any critical statements then to address them.


It’s not the gas arrows perse. In fact it doesn’t really matter what weapon you use because it’s not the weapon you’re exploiting. It’s the AI not knowing what to do about you standing on a rock so they just stand there like total idiots. That is the exploit.

Lol what a crock of sh*t, you can stand an climb on many rocks an structures an do the same thing, what about when you are on your walls shooting purge mobs? is that a hack because the mobs cant get you? Conan is a poorly optimized game with even thrasher servers, they shouldnt have made the mobs spawn like that if the game na server cant handle it. Exploit lol, better take climbing out of the game then.


This statement is ridiculous and dishonest. This is not what has been said & you are twisting words for nefarious purposes. It is an attempt to undermine the thread by making it about gas arrows, when that it not what it is about.

But the spider things can shoot you with acid anyway. I could climb any rock an do exactly the same thing, or run around with some foundations an put them down climb them an attack mobs.
