In September, the developers at Funcom struck with the Isle of Siptah a new chapter for Conan Exiles on. Now there was the first major update for the current version of the game. Update 2.1 introduces the frequently requested option of character redesign. In addition, the developers have revised the crafting system, weapons, armor, serfs and workbenches, significantly improved some of the old systems and implemented numerous new options.
The character redesign
Have you always wanted to change the look, hairstyle or makeup of your character? Now you have the chance, thanks to the new make-up mirror workbench. With this you can change your entire appearance. The piece of furniture is available to all players. Owners of the "Isle of Siptah" extension do however get some exclusive options for hairstyles and faces. There are a total of four new faces for female and five new faces for male characters, five new hairstyles for men and women and seven new facial hairs.
The update introduces many new workbenches, including the alchemist workbench, dyer workbench, tanner table, tinker workbench, and casting table. These workbenches make organizing many recipes a lot easier. In addition, there are now several new levels of workbenches, i.e. high-level versions with an updated appearance.
With the new workbench types and the higher levels of older workbenches, you now have significantly more workbenches to choose from. Certain craft bonuses such as speed, material cost reduction and burning time are now based on the level and type of workbench used, instead of on the level of the serf as before.
Speaking of which, level 3 and 4 serfs no longer make exceptional or flawless equipment, and the recipes for these items have been removed. Most of the recipes for upholstery and gun handles have also been grouped together for the sake of simplicity.
And what happens now to your high-level craft serfs when there is no longer any exceptional or flawless equipment and the workshops offer improved benefits? Many serfs have received unique specializations that grant equipment bonuses. For example, while a blade smith makes weapons with higher armor penetration, a sword smith's weapons cause higher damage.
In addition, some serfs not only grant their armor better stats, but also increase the attributes granted by the armor depending on their level. The manufactured armor sets of the highest quality level improve their attributes (such as strength, courage and so on) by ten points. Although high-level serfs have lost some of their benefits, the objects made by serfs with certain specializations are now more powerful.
