During a livestreamed Q&A from Funcom’s offices in Oslo, Conan Exiles Creative Director Joel Bylos and Community Manager Jens Erik Vaaler responded to quite a few questions from the fans, providing some interesting snippets of information on the future of the game.

  • A number of clan updates will come before the siege update is completed, including permissions.
  • A lot more uses for dyes are going to be added, including coloring weapons, shields and buildings.
  • The team is working on a system that will let players descend from high places very fast.
  • Human feet are being improved so that they’d actually look good when people stand on sloped surfaces.
  • 53 new emotes will come in the next patch the week after Easter. Due to Easter, there won’t be a patch this week.
  • Two-handed swords are coming “very soon.” Two-handed axes will come later.
  • The team is working on permissions to let other people sit on one’s chairs.
  • Very soon blocking with a shield will trigger an animation on the blocked opponent that will leave him vulnerable to retaliation.
  • Any player carrying an avatar token will be made visible on the map. The same will probably go for tier III altars.
