OP  2/16/10 2:45:22 PM#1

I'm getting a pretty nice new computer, so i figured I would pick up a new mmo at the same time. I narrowed it down to darkfall and AOC, but im still kind of unsure what this game is like. The combat looks pretty interesting, and the videos of pve raids( if thats what they were) looked kinda of lacking and un-exciting.  So it leaves me wondering what the selling point of this game is, or more specifically, how shallow is it? I hear leveling is pretty fun, but what do you do at the cap?

Is pvp instanced, how is class balance, and overall...what options (for activities) would your average player have as they logged on to their endgame character?

 The PvP is largely instanced, levelling is primarily done through questing, and there are raids to do at endgame.  Basically, those aspects are not the selling point of the game in my opinion.

The selling point of the game for me is being able to explore a (fairly) accurate portrayal of Hyboria.  The combat is unique and interactive (no auto-attack), the graphics and sound are amazing, and the classes are completely unique in most aspects.

That's what appeals to me, at least.  

Oh, and it's rated M, so blood and bewbs galore!  Weeeeee!

unique combat system, hands-down the best looking MMO on the market, and finally in a position to really add things, instead of playing catch-up.

also, the raids on youtube and the like don't do it justice. They're some of the most intense and strategic raiding I've done. The end game raiding has almost no "tank & spank"

It's a pretty MMO with pretty generic features.  I quit it because I have not found the world to be believable and the immersion was crap. If you are not into Role-Playing though it's  a game for anyone.

That's a really great question.  I have played maybe 2 months since it's release and I just re-subbed a few days ago to check it out again and I ask myself in game, "what is the point?"  I mean I'm on a pvp server and it's decently populated around the 1 starting zone, but I mean really what is the point of pvp?  Around Tortage, the starting zone, there are 2 places to pvp, white sands and the under halls.  Most of the pvp in these areas is right at the start of the zone where you zone in, probably so people can run away like little babies when they start to get beat.  Anyways, so you kill someone and they don't drop any loot and they spawn less than 5 seconds away from you and this just continues over and over.  Again, what is the point?  Also, every class in the game gets the ability to hide/stealth which I really don't understand as this is usually reserved for rogue type classes.

As for Darkfall, bleh.  Probably the biggest grind in any MMO since EQ1 and hell levels.  Yah sure you can pvp on day one, but honestly your just gonna get owned the first couple months you play as the majority of the population are vets and you stand no chance of ever catching up.  My opinion is if your gonna make a game thats primarily designed around pvp then I don't see why the grind has to be so long to be a substantial part of it.

The MMO market really just sucks right now to be honest.  I have a brand new beast of a computer I just built that is just sitting there waiting for something decent to come along.  Thankfully I got a PS3 to keep me occupied for the time being :)

I normally just say that Age of Conan is a game where you can rip peoples heads off and throw it down a hill. That's a good selling point for me.

Wait, you can actually do that? Sign me up

But ya thanks for the replies. A couple follow up questions. What is the pvp system,just enter an instance and kill with no progression? Having fun is a good enough reward, but if it's like a certain other game, i don't want to enter pvp just to be stomped by gear dependence...in other words, will i have to pve in order to be competitive in pvp?

well one of the fatalities for my sword is pushing it through the throat and then the top of the head and then you put your boot on his head kick the head off.

The progression comes in the form of pvp levels, I believe there are 5 of them, along side your regular level.  Gear is going to be a factor in most pvp based games you play, there is no escaping that.  The higher the pvp level you are the stronger you are in pvp combat I guess.  Honestly while I'm pvping I don't really feel I'm accomplishing anything other than the percentage of my pvp level going up.

Ya you can't escape the gear, but i was referring more towards pve gear. Like, will i have to raid for a month to get good enough gear to pvp. Or is their some sort of reward/renoun system.

I think you get gear based off your pvp level from what I was told and there is a renown system that was just introduced for guilds, but I don't know much about it.

My opinion is that Age of Conan is probably the most immersive MMORPG that's out there. It has a very good story line, quests are even entertaining. It's a gorgeous game with longevity written all over it, if people would actually give it a chance.

Like I said I haven't really played AoC very much, I have a lvl 52 and probably 3 or 4 lvl 25's.  I just always got bored with it and ended up quitting.  I also play on a pvp server instead of a pve server so depending on what server type you wanna play on it may contradict alot of what I'm telling you.

Ya, thanks for all the replies, I'm gona give it a shot for sure. Not much else out their anyway. I'm hoping your right, because immersion and longevity are the two things that i've been looking for. That one of the reasons why im probably gona try a sandbox or two as well. I just wish a company would develop a game that was more inbetween a sandpark and themepark and not to the extremes because they both have obvious flaws imo.

Well, honestly, what do you got to lose?  I mean you can buy the game at gamestop for $10 and that includes 30 days of game time.  Give it a go!

Not to derail the thread here, I'm just curious as to why you think the game is far from the books?  Imo, this is one thing the game does quite well.
