What is best in life, Conan Exiles? Is it to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their romantic interests? No. It is sitting in a camp and meticulously crafting a very nice end table you can use as part of a reading nook on the second floor of your house. The latest testlive patch is up for players to try out, you see, and it is all about improving and refining crafting while also adding the long-awaited option to re-customize your character during play.
The big change is that crafting power has been reworked so that rather than chasing the best crafting thralls possible, crafting stations are where the vertical power increase comes from. Thralls, instead, offer specialization options that improve certain produced weapon, armor, and so forth. This keeps more artisans relevant for longer while also providing a new and more specialized form of crafting output. Check out the full rundown for all of the numerical details, and be prepared to curse at Crom not for failure in battle but for a fall on crafting output due to preventable and frustrating workplace accidents.
