Getting Started in Conan Exiles, A Beginners Guide

Here's all you need to know about getting started in Conan Exiles

If you’re just hopping into the world of Conan Exiles, you’re probably a little confused and wondering where to start. Well look no further; in this feature we'll be breaking down all you need to know within Conan Exiles. 

Conan Exiles, Funcom’s newest open world survival game seems to be a massive hit, judging from the thousands upon thousands of views footage of the game is receiving on Twitch, YouTube, and other social media outlets. But be warned now and forever, if you go searching for Conan Exiles footage, chances are, you will find one too many penis gifs… Just saying.

Jumping into the world of Conan Exiles is no walk in the park, so here are a few things you might want to know before setting foot in this wasteland!

Keys to Survival

Obviously in an open world survival game, your number one goal should be survival, by all means necessary. A few ways you can help ensure your survival early on in Conan Exiles is to focus points on your survival area. Accumulating points in the survival category will greatly reduce the amount of food and water you must consume to stay alive which allows you to focus your attention of other survival tactics.

If you are struggling to stay hydrated, one major key early on in your life is to find or craft a water skin. Although you must acquire the necessary recipes and resources in order to craft a water skin, setting aside the time to do so will benefit you greatly in the long run.

If you are set on restarting from scratch every new life, your best bet is to set up some kind of outpost. This outpost should include a bedroll, which will allow you to respawn at a set point rather than at the initial spawn point, and a storage box filled with essential starting materials.

If you have important items in your inventory that become damaged, don’t stress! Focus on repairing them one at a time rather than going out and finding supplies to re-craft them.

Finally, there comes everyone’s favorite aspect of Conan Exiles; the killing! If you’re looking to level up fast, forget crafting and gathering supplies and set your mind on kills. Killing enemies gives you a decent amount of experience, and looting their corpses afterwards will help you acquire important building materials you may not have found otherwise.

So there it is, you should now be able to jump into Conan Exiles and hold your own right off the bat.
