[IGN] Age of Conan One of the Fastest Selling PC Games of All Time - Page 7

post #61 of 95
I can't believe the amount of *******s in this thread. I am glad you guys don't play the game.

I'm personally excited and curious about this game. I use to be a hardcore wow player but I quit a year ago because the game play got old and nothing felt fresh and new anymore. I'm going to wait until some sort of a trial comes out before I decide if I'm going to start paying monthly fees for it though.

Bear Shaman = take a guess....
Priest of Mitra = again.....

wonder where they their class ideas from?
And I wonder where Blizzard got these classes from. If we are going to be childish like this, it's going all the way back to D&D, then Tolkien, finally ending somewhere between mythology and archetypes. Pointless argument.

As for what I enjoy about the game, I don't have time to type that long list... I'm at work and I'm sure I'll be too busy ENJOYING AoC to post when I get home.

QFT

The negative people like microsis on this thread tend to rain on people's parades becuase their lives are meaningless without this kinda slander...

The negative people on this thread are the guy in the 93 accord on the freeway that constantly talks about how he is making great gas mileage and doesnt have to worry about maintenance..

While us age of conan players are the guy that maybe went into debt to buy that brand new sports car.. BUT AT LEAST WE ARE LIVING OUR LIVES AND NOT BASHING OTHERS FOR THEIRS.

SHUT UP ALREADY and GET OUT OF THIS THREAD HATERS !! no ONE CARES !

edit: YEAH MAYBE AOC WILL DIE IN A FEW MONTHS.. MAYBE IT WONT.. BUT AT LEAST THERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE US THAT ARE NOT AFRAID OF DOING THINGS ON THEIR OWN.. SO KEEP LIVING IN YOUR CHEAP POOR LONELY MEANINGLESS TROLL LIFE AND HAVE FUN SLEEPING IN THE BED YOU HATERS MADE. BECUASE THATS ALL YOU WILL HAVE WHEN EVERYTHING IS SAID AND DONE.. LOSERS

It's a game, sheesh. If it's fun for you, play it. If not, find something else. It's pretty simple, fellas. Whatever floats your boat.

Please stop with the "AoC copied and made worse" nonsense too, because really, the last time I checked, all fantasy games set in medieval times have some degree of overlap with each other when it comes to classes, whether its an MMO, an RPG, an RTS, or whatever.

Also, saying the quest system is worse than WoW's is complete rubbish and you know that.
Adding dialogue trees, facial expressions, and immersive camera angles to any quest system is only going to make it better. I'm pretty sure WoW doesn't even have full voice acting, and every single NPC you talk to simply shuffles his hands around a bit whether hes angry, sad, confused, worried, or scared.

The combat system isn't to some people's liking, but you can not deny that is is somewhat refreshing to people who want to actually play a game when they play an MMO, rather than just watching their character auto attack things, with the occasional special attack.
Age of Conan's combat system actually makes you think, instead of just mindlessly reciting a routine in combat
E.g.
Backstab out of stealth
debuff
stun
main attack
off hand attack
stun
repeat.
