A few of us are playing on US Official PvE server #1524. The locals here are pretty chill, and are more than happy to help out new players, or come to the rescue of someone getting their base purged.
For those who might have been scared for life after playing on an official Ark server, let me say that Conan Exiles isnt like that. No pillar spam, gather rates are reasonable, leveling into your 40s or 50s goes pretty quick.
Come join us if you’d like. We’d camping out in the valley just below the Black Galleon.
