Lore:  This for me is important, if not for you then you will do fine here.  You can run with your demons or undead pets through Cimmeria - which would never happen in the books - they'd cut yourhead off.  Priests of Mitra can slay each other and group with priests of Set - again, a lore breaker and proving to me that races were just a cosmetic touch.

I never had problems with the lore - true, I never pvp either :) (except some rare occasions when a good friend needed an extra healer in the Border Kingdoms)

I agree, you can't find magic-users running around with their pets in the books, simply because sorcerers are rare and powerful people in Hyboria so when they seldom move they're escorted with many servants and soldiers. But the game is helping you keep the lore, with every zoning it removes your pets if you were negligent and left them invoked around common folks :)

Priests are mostly wise people, so it's not unlikely they're joining forces when facing a common danger. (pve ofc) They can even take the opportunity for some theological dispute :)

In pvp those things would be valid, but that only shows 2 things, 1- don't pvp :) 2-it's a bad idea to forcing daoc onto other lores... (yep, looking at you too, TESO).  See, there wasn't any realm or religion-based massive war in Hyboria between the playable kingdoms. True, aquilonians aren't very fond of Stygia, but even Thoth-Amon's planned war in the game is his own, and not backed up by the entire kingdom of Stygia. Every major war happened against kingdoms that aren't in the game or just in as non-playing mobs (like the nemedians, the pictish tribes, or the hyperboreans)

I only try to say, you can leave the daoc-ish 'faction lock' and 'faction pride' and stuff outside the lore :)

AoC gave me the most funny moments than any other game I have ever played. Back when the game launched, on a FFA PvP server (I played on Wildsoul) you could hit other players with your mounts kick ability, and I saw a video on youtube showing a guy doing this to players in the Cimmerian area on a high bridge. In the end most of our guild would be doing it.

 

I had the funniest hate tells from many many players as they were kicked of the bridge to their deaths on the rocks below, they would run back and try again only to die another hilarious death. Just another example of how good AoC was but alas I don't think you can do this anymore as I think Funcom had too many complaints from angry players, and that I play on a PvE server now which wouldn't allow it anyway.

 

Check out this vid of another guy doing it   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OXgP7LyWDI   enjoy :)

That was great. ^

By the way, I'm trying to install AoC and for some reason my pc is just not letting me get past the patching screen.  This was happening on Steam so I uninstalled and tried installing the non-Steam (US) version.  It closes the patcher with no sign that anything else is being processed.  Does anyone know a guaranteed fix for this?

Strange... There was a maintenance today, but only here on Eu side (US will be tomorrow). I just checked, servers are online. Contacted the tech support dudes?

Bah, for some reason my antivirus had pegged the patcher as "dangerous".  I turned it off temporarily until I can install the game.  Someone probably neglected to index it in the database of safe processes.  Now I have to download all 25 gigs again. lol
