Veteran Rewards Detailed

Veteran Rewards Detailed -

Game Director Craig Morrison updates us on the state of Age of Conan with this month's Letter from the Game Director. Much of the letter's subject matter centers around the oft talked about Veteran Rewards system. This time, we've got solid details on how the system works and what you can expect to earn for your loyalty.

The system will reward players with a certain amount of points per month that scales the longer the player has been subscribed. For example, for players who have been subscribed for one to five months they will earn six points per month, while on the opposite end of the spectrum, players who have been with the game for 18-23 months will earn 12 points per month.

A list of some of the items that will be available and their costs can be found below:

Convenience Items


Veterans Path - 10 points (reduces the cooldown on your Path of Asura and Path of Comrades)
Veterans Teleports - 12 points each – Separate teleport items that share a cooldown that can take you to The Fire Beacon, the Hunting Lodge, Khesshata City, Iron Tower, Prison Colony or The Lair)
Veterans Home Paths - 8 points each – Separate path items that return you to either Khemi, Old Taranatia or Conarch Village that share a cooldown, but are on a separate cooldown to the Totem of Origins
Basic Riding Training - 2 points
Basic Horse - 10 points
Advanced Riding Training - 35 points
Swift Mount - 110 points
Full Feat Respec - 5 points
Reset Feat Cost - 25 points
XP Potion - 2 points (stack of potions that increase xp rate for a given time)

Veteran Items

Straw Man – 5 points (allows you to summon a straw man similar to the ones found in guild cities)
Veterans Boots – 8 points
Veterans Cape – 10 points
Veterans Bag – 10 points

Social Items

Size potion – 2 points (potions that allow you to grow in size for a period)
Arm Enlarging potion (potions that make your character a little more buff)
Breast Enlarging potion (female only)
Fireworks – 2 points each
Companion: Casilida - (will summon Casilda to cheer you on just like she did on the beach when you started your Hyborian adventure!)
Pet: Hyena – (will summon a non combat Hyena pet)

Two of those rewards definitely stand out to me. One, the breast enlarging potion, which is just plain funny, and the other being the Casilda companion. From this writer's perspective, I'm not sure I would consider that annoying tramp a veteran reward! Some of you may disagree with me, however! I can't be the only one that found her terribly annoying, can I?
