I have played the free version / trial of this game for over a year. I was never interested enough in taking on another $14.99 a month subscription. However, my City of Heroes is set to expire and my daughter and I have been trying different games. I decided to subscribe one account today.

 

What I expected: Open up more character slots, open up the other classes and races

 

What didn't happen: Open up more character slots, open up the other classes and races

 

Well, I guess I just wasted $14.99

Maybe you need to wait a few hours or contact support because it does say that you get all the classes and access to 8 char slots.

Depending on the payment method you chose it may take some time until your payment is confirmed and those features are unlocked.

Yep it may take a day or so for your sub to go active. You can look at the account page and see if its listed as " confirmed"

I did it month-to-month

 

I will wait a couple of hours to see if something changes.

Hopefully it will only take a few hours.

When I came back to the game long ago after a 6 month break it took 2 days for them to confirm the payment. Other than that AoC is a good game and well worth playing if you have not.

My payments to funcom has gone through instantly, but I did use my visa though. If you don't get your stuff I would talk to their live support team.

I did it in just under an hour earlier this week, before the weekend, since I somehow think it will be slower on a sunday. Banks closed and so on, and payments verified might take longer (?) took 30 min for me anyway 2 days ago to push trough a payment.

Account status should change when done, and remember to relog out of the game, and log back in again to see the changes.

Well, day 2, still only 2 slots for characters, and I still can't pick all races or classes.

this is a little off topic but i just want to warn you. when dealing with funcom and payments make sure they only charge you once. and when you are done you better keep a eye on your bank statments because they might charge you at anytime. i once got charged 4 months after stopping my acount.

Inside you account page at register.ageofconan.com there is a chat function, I think it's called livechat. This is what I use to fix anything basicly, I never petition ingame or send mails, stuff like subscrition problems, stuck characters, and lost items these guys can help very quickly, you usually get a guy in 5 mins.

Nevermind! Apparently I had a memory problem! I apparently had an account using the same e-mail address, which I didn't think was possible but I did. The payment went through and now I can play the full version. I just created a new Ranger. Crap, I had like 7 characters on this account. This game is pretty good. Hopefully it may be my replacement of City of Heroes.

best thing you can do is contact live support...they'll have an answer for you within 30 minutes.  I can typically resolve any issue I might have within much less than that.  But it HAS to be live support or you might wait longer than normal.

 

NEVERMIND...I was late :P...glad to hear it's resolved!

If you want to contunue with the superheroes theme I highly recommend Champions Online if you haven't tried it and DDO which is my family F2P game, though I am a VIP.

No that I have everything sorted out, how do you get out of the beginner stuff and actually get into the game?

Have to beat the guy on the boat. You need to do all the story quests. You'll end up leaving around level 20.

No worries, it will happen pretty quickly. You can get out of Tortage in < 8 hours no problem. Just get the nighttime quest done and at the appropriate level (not sure if it 16 or 18 as I usually end up around 20 just from questing) you can finish the nightime storyline and be able to leave. Of course you can also just get the lvl needed to leave and skip that story. Alright I am not being useful, point is it will be quick.

Night time missions, thanks! I couldn't remember what they were called since it's been so long and thankfully I haven't done Tortage in awhile. Yeah like esty17 said, it goes pretty quick. Save your offline levels for when you get into the 70s. 

If you're really just wanting to hurry to 80 find a guild and get into a DMC group. You'll be 80 pretty quick if you don't smack your head on the keyboard from boredom doing the same thing over and over. I enjoyed the journey to 80 but it gets harder to find people of low level since everyone it seems is 80.
