RELEASE DATE OF CONAN EXILES AGE OF SORCERY

The Conan Exiles update Age of Sorcery was teased to come out in the third quarter of 2022, officially releasing on September 1st, 2022.

WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR WITH AGE OF SORCERY

Through news posts created by the Conan Exiles developers, many more details have emerged bringing a lot of specific details on the changes coming in this Age of Sorcery update. Read below to learn more about what is coming in the Conan Exiles update Age of Sorcery!

DARK MAGIC AND CORRUPTION

The magic inside of Age of Sorcery will be dark and unique, authentic to sorcery found in Robert E. Howard’s stories where using sorcery requires a path of preparation and growth in the dominion of demons and ritual sacrifice. Through your preparation, you’ll gain the abilities to raise the dead, conjure ice and darkness, and summon demons to assist you in battles against your enemies.

The path of corruption and sorcery is not simple though, as you’ll need to search through the Exiled Lands in search of sorcerers for ancient writing and using these clues and your map, find the Tome of Kurak. Acquiring the Tome of Kurak is the key to dark magic, allowing you to unlock sorceries one at a time by finding and combining Sorcerous Spell Pages at the new Thaumaturgy Bench coming in the update.

Conan Exiles update age of sorcery- magic and corruption

Using your newly gained sorcery skills will require that you have a staff equipped, an item that can be crafted at the Thaumaturgy bench. This will allow you to speak phrases, where you will pick words in order through runes that appear before you to cast spells from different realms including the realm of death and the realm of dreams.

Sorcery comes with costs though, and you will begin to fill with corruption as your body visibly withers away the more you cast spells. Certain spells will require a higher amount of corruption than others to cast, and with using those powers your body will become weaker lowering both your max health and stamina. You can increase your attributes in corruption to improve your sorcery with new powers, becoming more and more powerful. While you will be able to cleanse corruption by being around dancer thralls, who wouldn’t want to be a powerful barbarian wizard?

SOME NEW TYPES OF SORCERIES

CALL OF NERGAL

The power of Call of Nergal offers a deadly bat demon, which when summoned allows you to ascend high into the sky and carry you great distances. You can control the direction of your glide, allowing you to travel far across the Exiled Lands for efficient travel.

Conan Exiles Age of Sorcery - Creeping Darkness sorcery

CREEPING DARKNESS

Dark and deadly, Creeping Darkness places all of your surroundings inside the black of night, accompanied by the sound of spiders crawling in the distance. When enemies are engulfed in this darkness, they will become terrified until attacked.

LIGHTNING STORM

Sparks will fly as you use Lightning Storm, a power that creates a great storm cloud that strikes bolts of lightning down at your enemies in the area of your attack. Lightning isn’t the only sorcery offering power over the elements, as you discover other sorceries including ice bridge and invisibility on your journey to becoming a powerful sorcerer!

Conan Exiles Age of Sorcery - ritual sacrifice

RITUALS

Rituals can now be performed, drawing blood from captives you bright to the sacrificial stone. You can use their blood inside a new crafting station called the Circle of Power to summon different types of demons to your Conan Exiles server!

FOLLOWERS GET AN UPGRADE

When traveling the Exiled Lands, followers can be there by your side to help you through thick and thin, taking on any challenges that stand in your way. In this update, Followers are seeing a change with lower health and damage to start. Through the new Authority attribute and perks, you’ll be able to improve your followers and their ability to knock out humans for use in Rituals.

Through Rituals, you can summon servants and demons to aid in your biding using a Circle of Power and the correct ingredients. These servants and demons can deal strong damage, and you can also get an abyssal horse or rhino that you can ride. Both mounts have powerful strengths, such as the rhino’s charge to deal devastating damage.

The stronger your Authority perk, the stronger your followers will be, with increased survivability including health regeneration and healing. As a final perk choice, you’ll even be able to choose between having an additional follower or greatly increasing your followers' attributes!

ATTRIBUTE CHANGES & WHAT THEY DO

Attributes are seeing a large change with the Age of Sorcery update, featuring a complete redesign of attributes, attribute points, and improvements to perks. Attributes will now max out at 20 points, and you’ll be able to earn a maximum of 60 attribute points to upgrade your skills. At each major milestone of every 10 points in an attribute, you’ll be able to choose between two different perks to improve that attribute even further!

Corruption will also allow you to take an attribute beyond its maximum, offering new perks at the price of corruption. The power of the corrupted perks will require sacrificing living humans, and by doing so you will be able to earn Soul Essence to use these perks. Once corrupted perks are unlocked, your corruption will be locked to that level, and only resetting your attributes will cleanse the corruption.

NEW ATTRIBUTES

The perks Accuracy, Encumbrance, and Survival have now been replaced and all attributes and attribute effects have been changed. Here is a list of each attribute and what they do:

  • Strength: Offering pure muscle to your character, Strength makes your character deal more damage with strength weapons along with having increased carrying capacity.
  • Agility: Agility offers a speed boost, improving your precision, skill, and speed to deal more damage with deft weapons along with increased stamina.
  • Vitality: Increasing this attribute also increases your hit points, keeping you alive longer.
  • Authority: Useful especially for your followers, Authority allows your followers to deal more damage while also making it easier to knock out thralls for sacrificial means.
  • Grit: From dealing with the harsh world of the Exiled Lands, improving your Grit will add increased stamina and armor to your character.
  • Expertise: Improving your Expertise expands your carrying weight, ensuring you can carry plenty of resources.

BUILDING OVERHAUL IS COMING

A strong overhaul with Age of Sorcery, building is getting many changes to help make building as effortless as possible both while using a keyboard and a controller. Through a new building UI, you’ll be able to quickly enter build mode and access building pieces with ease through a categorized menu.

Conan Exiles building changes

To access building mode, you’ll need to equip a Construction Hammer, have the proper materials, and then press the “F”-key or left bumper on your controller. Pressing right-click on a mouse or right bumper on the controller will allow you to toggle between removing or adding building pieces and using the middle mouse or pressing down on the right thumbstick will switch you to the block you’re currently looking at. All of these commands can be rebound, ensuring you can easily build your dream homes on dedicated Conan Exiles servers!

CREATIVE MODE IN CONAN EXILES AGE OF SORCERY

When you’re looking to kick back and relax with your creative imagination, the Conan Exiles Age of Sorcery update will make sure that is possible through Creative Mode. Creative Mode can be accessed both in singleplayer and on servers where you have admin access by using the admin menu and selecting “Activate Creative Mode”.

MOD COMPATIBILITY WITH CONAN EXILES AGE OF SORCERY

Considering the many exciting changes coming, the developers of Conan Exiles, Funcom, announced that mod compatibility was kept in mind to provide the best experience to modders and players alike. Modders will be able to utilize systems such as the new structures and building UI to add custom sorting to placeables and building pieces through new gameplay tags to add new categories to the menu.
