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.
BDO: Loyalty Points
Loyalty points are free just for playing and I’m not complaining but there are some items better than others to spend those loyalty points on:
Below is what I have spent my points on previously:
Character Slot Expansion Coupon. (Having a lot of characters in this game is a bonus)
Weight Limit 50LT (I buy this when I’m starting a new character. They have very low weight limit in the beginning and this helps with all the loot)
Blessing of Kamasylve 1 Day (If it’s a day I know I will be fighting mobs a lot, I get one of these because it increases the loot drop)
Sealed Book of Combat 1day (Again, if I’m fighting mobs, I get this to boost up my combat experience. It’s especially helpful in higher levels)
What I never get or use:
Golden bell (It’s a lot of loyalty points just for 1 hour of combat experience. It also for everybody on the server but I don’t care about those other people)
Inventory +1 Expansion Coupon (It’s another one that requires a shit ton of points for very little. If you want inventory slots, just do a few of the Black Spirit beginning quests)
City Storage Slots + 1 (Not even sure why this is in there. You can add storage slots just by using contribution points on city buildings)
Atlanis Firefly (You can get these really cheap at any goods vendor)
These items you are get on marketplace cheap:
The other items don’t personally interest me so you will have to decide if it’s worth it to you or not.
Black Desert does put loyalty items on sale and have limited things from time to time. It’s always worth checking out.
