Conan Exiles: Isle of Siptah

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.

PIMD: Changing your name

PIMD: Spinner Items

How much should you buy / sell spinner items?

What are spinner items?

Spinner items are the things you can win only in the Spin game on PIMD.  You need to earn 100 points for one free spin.

Some of the items are rotated out after a few weeks and some are not like the chibis.

For the prizes that rotate:  You need collect the 4 themed items and have 5 of each one of the 4.  (20 all together) They will then combine and make one item.

Why collect these?

Each of these collectable spinner items are worth 5,000 in stats.  If you can collect the 20 and have them combine; it will be worth 250,000 in stats.

What are they worth?

Your first and best option is to trade other people for the spinner items.  Lot of people have extra spinner items that are willingly to trade for the spinner item they need.

Your second option is to buy one for a chibis.  I would not pay more than that.

PIMD: How to sell your dorm

How to sell your dorm:

First, I will explain what that means when somebody in chat is saying they are selling their dorm.

When a person wants to sell their dorm, this does not mean they want to sell their account, they are actually selling all the items on display in their dorm room.

To view these items, you would have to click the person’s profile and then use the “Enter Room” button.

To purchase or trade:

In order to purchase these items, you will first need to friend the person.

Open a chat with the person and hit the trade button.

Why are they selling their dorm?

Lots of people like to collect the whole dorm room theme and sell them for bentos.

It usually takes quite a bit of time to collect a whole themed room and it’s not easy.

Prices:

Whole themed dorm room prices will vary.  It will depend on rarity and what level the pieces are at.

Furniture items are usually exchanged for bentos.

The 499 & 999 items are going to be the most expensive.   999 items are a minimum of 15 bentos and higher.

I have seen 999 item go for 70 bentos.  (I think that’s too high though) but level does play a major factor in how much something sells for.

499 & 999 are also the hardest to obtain or win.

A 499 item is going to be around 10 bentos (maybe higher)

A bed or desk – around 2 to 5 bentos.

The items that don’t level up aren’t worth even 1 bento.  Those are the floors, wallpaper and some of the wall hangings.

The lamp, table, shelf, shelf items, chair and other floor item can usually start around 1 to 5 bentos (maybe higher depending on level and rarity.)

 

BDO: Valencia Grave Robber Questline pt 4

To see part 1, part 2 and part 3.

Quest 18: An Exhausting Situation

When you reach Maghed and give him 2 gold bars.  He is going to give you a new quest.

Basically, you will need to run around and kill a few Gahaz bandits and go back to Maghed.

Quest 19: Obtain Golden Desert Coin.

This will send you in the desert again – so you will need your shovels and compass.

You will need to travel pretty far in the desert (where it’s marked on the map) and dig up some coins.

Center yourself exactly in the middle of the mini map quest circle.  Keep digging there and you will get 5 coins.

You won’t get a coin each time but keep digging there.

Once you find the 5 coins, ride back to Valencia and talk to Afuara.

Hand over the 5 coins to him.  He won’t give you the next quest.

20: For God’s Sake!

The Black Spirit will be pissed you handed coins over to that troll and call you stupid.

He will tell you to go talk to Zobadi.  Just do it and let’s get this questline over.

Once, you meet Zobadi in Valencia, he will give you yet another quest.

Go steal a storage key from Afuara (F6) and go to Arehaza – which is the town to the east of Valencia.

21 Quest: The Same Method

Once you speak to the storage keeper – the Black Spirit will give you a quest.

Go back to Valencia and find  King Sahazad

BDO: Valencia Grave Robber Questline pt. 3

If you are interesting in reading Part 1 (Quest 1 to 6) and Part 2 (Quest 7 to 13)

Quest 14th: Moving Ahead

I think out of all the quests, this one was the most challenging in the beginning.  You have to dig in the circle to find a quest item but the thing was that you actually had to be outside of the circle to find it.   See pictures.

You are just a smudge just outside of the mini map circle – facing these two rocks.  (Not too close to them and at this angle)

Zobadi is behind you – The man by the white horse. As you can see – you are in front of him..near these two rocks.

You might have to dig a few times and adjust yourself at the right angle.  Remember, if you avie is inside the yellow circle on the mini map – you need to move it outside just a tad.

Black Desert has never fixed this quest in the years I have been playing..no idea why.

Now, you need to go back to Valencia and talk to Afuaru to get the next quest.

Quest 15: Memories of Eliza.

You need to go talk to Tatar. He is the drunk down by the lake and you need to steal a key from him to open the chest after you talk to him.

This will take you several times and you will be amazed how much useless shit he has in his robe.

 

Once, you have the key, open up your inventory and align the box and the key together to open it.

Then go hand the diamond/chest to afuara.

Quest 16: Rabam’s Storage Key

You just need to steal a key from Rabam in the training area and go give it to the storage keep, Ramanit.

She will then give you a journal to give to Afuara.

Quest 17: Gold Bar Required

Bring 20G of gold bars and travel back to the Gahaz Bandits.  It’s in BFE.

Black Desert Online: Possible glitch enhancing

GRRRRRRR! BALL SUCKERS!

I’m on the season server and I noticed whenever I try to enhance any item and if the system determines my chances are too “High” – it will give me an alert message. The problem is if you go and click “enhance” anyway – it will not do anything.  If I take the item out and try a different item where my chances are lower, I will not get an alert message, first off, and second, it will enhance.  So every time, I get this alert message and my chances are too high, I can not enhance that item whatsoever.  I have to use another item to zero out my chances and then try the item again.  Which is frustrating because why the f*ck have valks advice or valks cry if you can’t use them.

BDO: Season Server Quest – Very much worth it.

If you are on a season server trying to level up your new character make sure to take a look at this quest.  It’s not a black spirit quest but it is one just for the season server people.

You will find it over in the Gahaz Bandit area and you just need to find Rafa to get it.

You need to kill 5000 bandits and your rewards is 300 CP and a choice of 600 time filled black stones, 90 tuvala ore or 40 refined magical black stone.

This is a good quest to try to get more ore or stones for Tuvala gear.

Pro Tip:  Since you are planning on killing so many bandits – make sure to visit Marni and get some stones to fill up souls.  Every point helps to level up.
