Haven't played any fantasy mmo in a long time. Mostly RL and an hour of casual FPS'ing every now and then. I have every now and then missed the feel of building a char in a virtual world, and of all the mmorpgs I've played. I miss Conan the most. Downloading as I write. Hope to see some of you soon.

which server? Also started out on a new "piratey" character and got the swashbuckler outfit, to make a fashion statement. Tortage is still beautiful. Can´t wait to level up once more and check out the Turan content. Not sure at which level those new areas kick in, heard around 40 ?

The godslayer expansion is only worth getting after 80, correct? Or is there anything for lower level chars as well?

Turan is for level 50-55. The  Godslayer expansion has 2 parts. The Gateway to Khitai is for level 20-40 which is for peeps leaving Tortage and open to FtP. Khitai proper is separated from the Gateway by a great wall that looks like the Great Wall of China and is for level 80's and you have to be subbed to enter, it is not available to FtP accounts. So the expansion is only worth buying before 80 if you want to see the Gateway content and are willing to sub after reaching 80 to enter Khitai proper. If you have no intention of subbing I would pass on the expansion. If you are currently subbed then pick up Godslayer because the Gateway is a pretty big playfield and looks different than any other leveling area.

You know what´s strange? The F2P comparison lists "Gateway to Khitai" as free content, so that means the massive 20-40 playfield from the RotGs expansion is included even if one does not own the expansion?

No, I am pretty sure that the Gateway is part of the Godslayer expansion. If it is not too expensive It might be worth getting even if you don't sub for the 80's content on the otherside of the wall. Also there are token passes you can buy in game that allow you temporary access to Khitai if you want to check it out for a week. But if you want to play the Khitai content for real  you need to be a subscriber.

The Gateway area is indeed F2P. I've never subscribed or bought Godslayer, and I've been there several times. One of the low level quests in Stygia sends you there.

That´s cool. Played back in 2009 and returned recently since I kinda missed the game. If the Gateway to Khitai is F2P,  I´ll be able to check it out earlier.

Just ordered the Godslayer Expansion from Amazon because there are some cool packs and items included. Can´t wait :D

I wonder if the upcoming single server tech and new Schwarzenegger Conan movie in the works will give a little push to the game again. It seems very good now in version 4.0

The combat system is still incredible

Sorry to burst your bubble OP but Age of Conan is far from every being a good game. The game is so ridden with hackers/cheaters/homebrewers its a fucking joke man.

[mod edit]

Also, don't fool yourself ANYONE that's remotely good at that game is using it, so ya. Bad game is bad.

Okay I stand corrected then. I thought I only had access to Gateway after purchasing the Godslayer expansion, but that was like 2 years ago so I am a little fuzzy on the details :)

I´recently re-discovered this gem and I love it. My old guild from 2009 (!!!) is still there, and we are absolutely having a blast. Restarted a character and the game is still magic and 100 times better than it was on release.

Everyone not checking a MMO out because of silly "Launch problems" is totally missing out on this.

This is 2013, AoC version number is 4.0 don´t you think this is a little different than AoC version 1.0 ?

I can recommend AoC to everyone, it is incredibly deep, and the amount of content and landscape is ENORMOUS.

Download it as F2P and give it a try, you won´t regret it.

This thread inspired me to check out the game again and I'm glad I did.  I was one of the beta testers and the game has improved so much since launch.  I remember it being so full of bugs that tech support on the forums told everyone to run the game on high settings as a "work around" for better performance.  I just starting playing again yesterday so I'm not 100% sure if I'll stick around but so far I've been having a great time.

It will get even better with the crafting revamp and single server tech.. good times ahead for AoC I must say!

It was said on the mmorpg livestream that single server tech and crafting revamp are part of the upcoming additions with the remaining Dragon´s Spine update series "early 2013" so probably will arrive before summer

Well I look most forward to get the completely new crafting/tradeskill system.. It will turn the economy upside down and hopefully give more incetives for the grred part of the MMO crown to keep churning away gathering and making shit that I can buy :D

 

I really think that AoC could wake up again if they got those improvements in place.

 

Last thing for wishlist would be that they gave out a new starter area.
