Hey everyone I thought I would drop by and give everyone a preview of our seasonal content that will be coming in with the update 1.05.6 next week.

We have added in a few single player quests as well as a new team quest where players must hunt down three lost souls from Hyboria’s past. These quests will take players into areas they thought to be familiar but now have an eerie shadow cast over them.

Along with these new quests there will also be some unique rewards players can get such as the Unholy Backscratcher, Fermented Brain Juice or the skin altering void essence. Players will also have the opportunity to get their very own pet Soul Devourer!

Soul Devourer Pet    Unholy Backscratcher
 

Alongside our seasonal content we will be bringing out a few new programs to reward our long term players. As of today the 3 month subscription offers a 20% discount, 6 month subscription yields a 30% discount and 12 month offers a 45% discount vs. the regular one month plan. This is more than twice the discount than before. Keep in mind when you purchase these longer subscriptions you will get your veteran points up front so you can have access to all of our new veteran rewards too! Finally we are going to be starting a program rewarding players for recruiting their friends to play AoC, but we will have a little more information on that when it goes live with the update so keep an eye out for it!
 

Anyways, that’s all for now so make sure to come check out the new event next week as well as the Iron Tower and the new Veteran System.

Hello Everyone! Famine added me as a contributor to this blog a few weeks back and it has been a busy few weeks for me but I thought I would drop in to give everyone a few updates and talk about what is going on in Age of Conan.
 

Before I get into the good stuff I should probably let everyone know who I am and what it is that I do here! My name is Dominic Acquarulo and I am the US Community Coordinator here at Funcom and you will find me on the forums as Senek. Before working with the community team I was a CS Lead for AoC so I have a spent a lot of time actually in the game. One of the cool things I have been able to work with lately is the Advocate Program. The Advocates are a group of players that give Funcom feedback reports based on their experience and the discussions they have with the community in regards to their class. As of late I have recruited several new Advocates who are doing great things over on the boards, so if you are a new or returning players or just looking for a little more information on your class check them out!
 

As far as in game news update 1.05.5.1 was all about the latest class focus with Conquerors in the spotlight. In addition to the class focus, we also addressed some small game issues that arose since the last update. Come check out the detailed update notes here.
 

We are now doing public testing of the next update which you can check out on our Test Live servers. With this update we will bring out The Iron Tower, which is conclusion of the Tarantia Commons story line. It is a single team instance that will put players up against 4 new bosses and 5 new mini bosses. There is also a chance players may face one of five rare bosses Betty Wolfsmilk, Jack Knives, Horace the Shadow, Nightcharm and Vulferam.
 

For our veteran players we are will be rolling out a veteran rewards program in the near future . Players will be rewarded for the length of time they have played and will earn points to purchase some very cool veteran items. Some of the rewards include veterans teleports, advanced riding, a swift mount, a full feat respec and the ability to reset feat costs.
 

Looking past the Iron Tower and into what update 1.6 will bring we have even more exciting things including House of Crom, Guild Renown, a new Tower PvP system and the much anticipated Tier 3 Raids.
 

Well, that’s it for this time but if there is something you want to hear about or something you would like to see in a future blog let me know!
