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

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.

Conan Exiles: How to chat.

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.

 

 

Discord: How to set up push to talk.

A short informative tutorial on how to set up “Push To Talk” in Discord.  As much as I love Discord for voice chatting, I can see how people will find it confusing.   I remember when I was new to Discord; it was so mind numbing that I ended up staring blankly at the screen and drooling on myself.

Ok, so yeah, follow these steps:

Pro Tip:  Download Discord to your desktop.  It’s so much better than messing with the website browser one. 

Step One:  Open your desktop Discord

Step Two: Go all the way to the bottom where your profile picture is.  You will see a icon that looks like a gear wheel. Click that.

Step Three:  Scroll down the side menu and look for Voice / Video and click that.

Step Four:  I’m assuming you will have your input and output device set up.  If not, this is where you need to do it at.

Step Five:  Check mark “Push to Talk”

Step Six: Click into the box and hold down two keys that you want to use.

Step Seven:  Click the ESC at the top.  It will automatically save your settings.

Note You can also do a mic / push to talk test on the same page.
