I mean EQ2 gives you access to 90% of the races and classes for free even if you never bought it.

Yes you can be any class you'd like now... F2P

That's not true basicly, the big fun for myself is also the big open worlds, and the possibility to gang everyone you like in there. But also I have to admit the pve content is WAY better then many new games doungens or raids (80+ doungens/raids). Even the 80+ pve content who ever likes to quest, is pretty fine and not so grindy anymore.

One tipp for some f2p players, I've seen that Bori kingdom playground is f2p now, which means u can boost your pvp level abit or do some open world pvp against some highlevels xD. Maybe it helps to get a bit faser to the top.

I am playing on a pvp server, which is not awesome but "ok" visited. Anyways you still have bori+ minigames on pve servers^^.

Just wanted to tell you people to give it a try again and see if you have what it takes to be on the Deathwish Server... The soundtrack is very nice also....

 

youtube, Age of Conan soundtrack  track 1,  I bet you would like it :)

 

 

Happy gaming..

A game on crutches has a hard time rising...

Not played since it went f2p.. but i played back when they released the first exp.. and  i must admit its probally the most fun i have had in a themepark mmo.. it is by far my favourite themepark mmo on the market at the moment..

Awesome graphics, awesome combat system, nice story to follw, good fun to actually level your character it does not feel like i need ot rush to 80, decent character class system, good pvp from small batlle gronud to open pvp areas to hardcore pvp servers.

AoC has incredibly deep mechanics, huge landcapes, extreme diverse classes, great stories.. cool animal mounts, open world PvP plus loot, mounted combat, combat pets, day night change, epic dungeons and raids, guild sieges, guild cities, great crafting, fantastic combat, alternate advancement and tons of other stuff, heck I don't know why I thought the grasses would be greener elsewhere.. this game is a diamond

 

btw, population is very good on my european server and there will soon be an upgrade to single server tech so everyone can play without server separation.

Roaming around? whoa, get out of the Tortage introduction, after lvl 20 the world opens up like no other. It's immense, totally different than Tortage. Not much instancing except for dungeons

Say what now? don't just throw around cool phrases explain too what you mean by 'INCREDIBLY DEEP mechanics'.

Deep how? they have made it easier now comapred to when game fist released. They have reduced the number of combos you do..i remember when you had to prss upto 6 arrows for a simple move.

Even then it wasn't deep...the arrows flash on screen and all you need is quick reflexes for it. So yep i still don't  get this 'incredibly deep' mechanics.

What also adds some depths is the positioning in combat to deal damage or to heal, weapon switching to use some combos. And the classes have some nice mechanics too, for example the Priest of Mitra or Bear Shaman, you will see PoMs who are able to deal insane damage and keeping their group alive and you will see PoMs who are unable to deal damage at all.  And don't ask me how often I worked on my DT build ^^. I would say that there are not really cookie-cutter builds for all classes since the optimal build depents at least a bit on your gear and the content you play.

But of course if AoC has depths or not does depent on the references. As far as I can see compared to other MMOs AoC has a deeper game mechanic.  And I don't get tired to claim that AoCs healing system was the best invention after sliced bread, it really makes teamplay (working as a team) mandatory for healing and tanking.

Well compared to themepark games it is.. its also not just the combos you need to worry about, you can move your active blocks aronud to reduce the damage you take, you can hit more than one target at a time, you can dodge out the way of attacks.. so yeah sure its not as deep as the combat system in mount and blade or somthing but its certainly more to it than your standard tab target themepark mmo..

I guess he maybe meant that you can play every character on a diffrent playstyle. Easiest example the dmg healers or support healers or dps healers.

They promise an overhaul of crafting 2 years ago....and it's still not in the game.

Lage scale guild fights....still are liable to crash....last I checked

Crafting comes... But it is further delayed because they still need to make it compatible with the old systems... But hey, we are getting single server technology now. You can absically PvP your brains out in minigames and sieges now :)

I think AoC will see a further rise in activity through out may and this summer :)

I got banned from this game ages ago , ironically the game has nudity is R18 but obviously you cant swear in game excessively else the banhammer will get you .

However seems like I can play again now 5 years later .  D/Ling it now ,  will be interesting to see how it looks with full graphics turned on ultra . I remember my old PC couldn't handle it very well .

So, basically you're saying that you got banned for doing something that you'd get banned for in any other game. I guess banning douche bags is a universal thing.

They sold the game on the back of direct x 10 and it didn't have it in game until a year into launch. The Sieges are not the sieges they hyped it them to be and, it stil crashes a lot.

Bar Brawl... The idea was screappedeven before launch of the game :)  Fun sounding idea.. but not implementable.

It's quite common for developers to talk to their communities about upcoming projects.. hell it's even normal for developers to get their communities to test stuff, before final call on wether the content should be added or not.

Are you new to MMOing?

 When it released it was way ahead of its time.. and hardware

Now playing on a GTX 580 since a few months and it´s a total eye popper in DX10 with everything on high, even more so if you install Sweet FX :))
