Battle Passes are not a new thing in a lot of live service games, but for a survival game like Conan Exiles, it might seem out of place. As part of the Age of Sorcery update, Funcom decided to add a Battle Pass into the game to reward players with exclusive items after reaching certain levels.
Of course, buying the Battle Pass is optional, and the rewards you can get are mostly cosmetics anyway. As such, this begs the question, “is the Battle Pass worth it?”. Let’s find out.
Is the Battle Pass Worth It in Conan Exiles
Before anything else, let’s first have a look at how the Battle Pass works in Conan Exiles. First of all, it comes with both a free and paid version. This means that even if you don’t buy it, you can still get rewards, albeit limited.
Also, it is directly linked to the new Challenges mechanic, with each challenge you complete giving you XP to level up the Battle Pass. Needless to say, each level unlocks a reward all the way up to level 60. Moreover, the rewards are purely cosmetics, and the items that you get are still obtainable in the game via normal means.
Since Age of Sorcery also introduced the Illusion system, which is akin to the Transmog system in some games, that means you can apply your exclusive cosmetics to your preferred gear. This makes for a really cool and unique-looking character.
Is It Worth It?
Now, is buying the Battle Pass really worth it? In my opinion, I would totally say it’s worth it, especially if you’re going for those exclusive cosmetic rewards.
Not only that, but certain levels will reward you with Crom coins. Also, if you manage to hit level 60 in the Battle Pass, you should earn enough Crom coins to buy the next Battle Pass.
It only costs roughly $9.99 which isn’t as expensive as most games’ Battle Passes either.
SWTOR G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3
How far will your reputation take you?
Star Wars: The Old Republic is BioWare MMORPG based on the acclaimed Star Wars universe. As Galactic Season 3 kicked in, so did new challenges. Today, we’re talking about G.A.M.E., a new reputation system introduced along with this new season.
G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3 – SWTOR
In SWTOR, Galactic Seasons are long seasonal events that grant limited-time rewards upon the completion of daily and weekly challenges dubbed Priority Objectives. Subscribers earn extra rewards, but everyone can participate.
Season 3, titled Luck of the Draw, brought with it the Gambling Authority and Management Entity, popularised by the acronym G.A.M.E. Basically, it’s a new form to track your reputation. But it comes with a few differences.
Unlike the other reputation tracks, G.A.M.E. is tied into Season 3. Another difference is that you won’t be able to see the reputation track for G.A.M.E. until you earn 1 reputation point with the faction.
First of all, you’ll need to unlock the first level of the Season 3 track. This will allow you to claim the PH4-LNX Protocol Lockbox and, with it, activate the new companion, PH4-LNX (Fey, as she likes to be called).
As you play through Season 3, you might notice that some quests and enemy drops give a new type of currency known as the G.A.M.E. Analysis Module.
When Fey is on your ship, you can take those Modules to her and convert them into G.A.M.E. reputation. Each Module is worth 25 Reputation Points (37 if you’re a Subscriber).
Note that you can only hold up to 200 Analysis Modules and only earn up to 200 per week. Additionally, you can only earn 5.000 Reputation Points per week, no matter how many boosts you have.
If you’re wondering about the math of it all, you’ll need 70.000 Reputation Points to reach max reputation, which accounts for 2.800 Modules without any boost. Good luck!
(And I’m sorry to report there are no ways to farm the Modules. Having Fey as your companion, however, increases the chance of enemies dropping more of the item. You can also trade 500 Jawa Junk (purple) for Jawa Intel with Brrazz in Cartel Bazaar.)
There are two bugs worth mentioning. One, be careful with skipping Fey’s dialogue since it might cause the Reputation Points to not enter your inventory.
Second, if you’re in a group, you might be unable to talk to Fey at all. To correct that, you’ll need to leave the group, turn in your Modules, and then re-join the group.
Now, for the big question: what are the rewards?
You can earn three legacy titles associated with G.A.M.E.: G.A.M.E. Representative, Mid-level Management, and Deputy Director of G.A.M.E.
Aside from that, the G.A.M.E. reputation track is actually more about helping you to earn rewards on the Season Tracker faster, so don’t expect unique rewards here.
Either way, I hope you enjoy Season 3 of Star Wars: The Old Republic!
