Conan Exiles: Isle of Siptah
Answering some questions about Conan Exiles newest release:
Is Isle of Siptah an expansion?
No, this is not an expansion and I’m confused on why Conan Exiles even refers to it as that.
Why it is not an expansion?
In order to play Isle of Siptah, you will have to join a server that is running it.
Conan Exiles & Isle of Siptah cannot be run on the same server. The maps do not connect to each other.
When you start Isle of Siptah, you will have to create a new character.
Yes, you will have to start a whole new character.
How big is the map?
The map is a decent size. It’s about half the size of Conan Exiles.
Is it worth the price?
I paid $19.99 from Steam and I would say it’s worth it. If the price is higher, I’m not sure it would be worth more.
Will my other DLC’s carry over?
Yes, if you have other DLC’s from Conan Exiles, you can use them in Isle of Siptah.
There are some new items like mountable Rhinos and building pieces that Funcom added to Isle of Siptah.
Something to think about:
Isle of Siptah is an extra 61gb download.
What I like about it:
Funcom has added new monsters / animals to train or fight. It is an island so there are a lot of storms. Random lightning across the map will shoot out monsters or thralls to kill.
There are plenty of nice areas to build and I like the new building pieces. Overall, I love the island feel with undead pirates and ship wrecks.
What I do not like:
Finding thralls to train can be difficult especially if it’s a server with a lot of people. Resources are every where but not in large clumps so you have to search longer for what you need and in several different locations.
Food does not health you up as much as it did in Conan Exiles. You have to make bandages. When you are healing yourself with a wrap, your character cannot move until the wrap animation is finished. This will last a few seconds.
Storms will damage your bedroll.
