post #11 of 23
Ok just to shoot the OP down a notch or 2.. AoC is currently in "Open" Beta.. and the NDA has been lifted on the Open Beta stuff.. So your clear there OP

Anyways... I only have a few level 20 chars so I can not really say to much.. Im running the system on my machine listed below.. and overall it runs quite decent for a beta. The load times are a bit long.. but meh gives you time to grab a drink lol

Closed beta is still under NDA

This isn't really a question pertaining to the gameplay itself, but I decided to post it in here since it is a "Q and A" and I don't want to make another AoC thread.

I pre-ordered the Age of Conan Collectors Edition from EBgames.com about a month or two ago.
When I pre-ordered it, I read that they wouldn't charge me until they processed the package for shipping, which I assumed would be closer to the date of release.
I recieved an email at around 11:30 AM this morning that they tried to process my order (which I knew couldn't be good because I only have about $4 in my account) and that my credit card was declined. I get paid tomorrow and the funds are always transferred to my bank on the 16th of each month at around 6 AM in the morning.

The email says that they will cancel my order if I cannot pay within 48 hours.
That would mean that I have until 11:30 AM on Friday, correct?
If so, then I should be able to resolve the issue.
I just need some clarification that I'm thinking this out correctly.
I'm sort of paranoid about it because ebgames and most other stores are sold out of collectors editions, so this is my only chance to get it and the pre-order mammoth.

Thanks.
NEW BUILD!!!!

I'd have to say it is very similar. I saw a couple of level 80's... But I don't know how long they have been in beta for..

As for EmeraldICE, I would email them (preferably the sales dept. if possible) ASAP and explain your situation.

I've heard you can get lvl 80 in roughly 2 1/2 days of game time from people in LotD and some people in my guild in CB.

Is it fun or does it feel like another grindfest?

They estimate 240 hours of gameplay for the average gamer from 1-80.

I was also in AoC closed beta, and I must say, that I do plan on buying the game in a few days.

There is still quite a bit of polish they need to apply, but so far the game looks great. I didn't get very far in it however, only lvl 18ish Necromancer or so, but it was all right. I plan on playing a Tempest of Set on release though, really stoked for that!

Hey kneeki, I am considering playing a necromancer, what do you think of it?

After having done my first "instance" with a group. (level 36-38 instance called Sanctum of Burning Souls) I can safely admit that this game is just WoW with better graphics

unfortunately this is not what I was looking for in a game and I will not be buying it. However, if you like the whole "group vs the game" instance style raiding to get loot, then you may enjoy this.

However, the loot was horrible. Both a 1h mace and a 1h sword dropped off two different bosses, both of which were worse than a quest reward sword that I got at level 30. I don't understand how a level 38 instance would have worse loot than what I got over a week ago.

Not only that but every character class around the same level looked exactly the same because everyone had the same loot!

Darkfall, you might be my last hope.

Feel free to ask more questions; I will try to share them unbiased.
