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.

BDO: Valencia Grave Robber Questline

I know many people are having trouble with this questline and since I’m having to re-do it with my season server character; I am going to post it here.

What you will need for this quest line because you will be in the desert:  Compass, Shovels, Water, Star Anise Tea (if in the desert at night), horse or camel and your weapons. (At bare minimum)

You obtain this quest thru the Black Spirit and you will need to find “Afuaru” for the first quest: Valencia Grave Robber.

Second quest is relatively simple – Steal a book from the Royal Palace.  Quest: Finding Valencia’s Treasures.

Just on your navigation and just go straight to the book.

Third quest: Afuaru’s Hobby’s.  He wants you to steal from three people marked on the map.  In order to steal, you need to stand behind them and when the circle menu appears, hit F6.

Sometimes, it takes multiple times for you to steal the item you need.   If you fail, keep trying.

Bring the items back to Afuaru.

Afuaru being the weirdo he is, now wants you to give those items to 3 other people marked on the map.

Go to each person and hit chat and then go back to Afuaru when you are done.

Quest: Give me first, then we can talk.

Next quest: Now that you can read.  Use navigation and go read the book.  Coming back to Afuaru.

Quest: Grave of a King.  You will need to hop on your horse or camel and go northeast to Valencia castle.

It’s not very far.  You will see three guys outside of Valencia Castle.  Go inside and follow the long path to where you are underground.

You will see this stone ruin thing in the middle of the room.  The circle beside it – go in the middle and use the tool that Afuara gave you.

A strange creature will appear and you will have to kill it.  (It’s not hard to kill)

Go all the way back up to the top, get on your horse or camel and go to Valencia and see Afuara again.

To be continued…..

 

Black Desert Online: Old Moon Farming Fences

If you are into farming life skills then you’ll want to pick up this little perk when you reach farming “Master 1.”  These fences are better than the strong fences.  They are slightly smaller in size and they use less water and fertilizer.  You still can only have 10 fences at a time.  Once you reach farming master 1, then you need to find an old moon manager.  There are several off them all over the map.  The one I use is “Stee” in Heidel.  He is easy to find in the northern tavern by the bar.

In Heidel: Find “Stee” in the northern Heidel tavern.  Chat with him and get the fences.   You will need to use your farming character that has reached “Master 1 or higher” to be able to lay the fences down.

 

 

Black Desert Online: Quest help -Hunting-loving hunter

This is one of the quests you might get when you first start and as a beginner it can be a bit tricky.

The quest is called “Hunting-Loving Hunter.” The first part of the quest is easy, you just go to the Inn in Veila and talk to the people at the first table near the cook.

The 2nd part, you will have to find Chuck Laurie in the mountains.  There is no auto path to him and he is not high-lighted on the map.

Here is a map to show you where he is.  He is right below Olvia. Where the little question mark is.
