Microsis is a troll, just ignore him. He is going out of his way to bash this game instead of voicing his opinion and leaving it at that.

The game looks good but not $15 a month + the initial $50 good. Especially when considering that the game has a lot of instances.

Hmm, I heard they weren't available yet, but I guess not...I'd like one also if anyone happens to have a spare.

Character creation was fun. A TON of options and I got to basically craft the character exactly the way I wanted it. I highly doubt you’ll find many people with the same facial features unless they just chose the default ‘look’ for whatever type of face they chose.

At this point you jumped into a beautiful world—and the first thing I noticed and had a blast with was the combat system. You chose from three directions to swing and as you leveled up you got combos and had to swing in certain directions in a certain order to pull them off. It was then that I busted into Tortage (rather quickly, may I add…) and finally saw some other players running around. Now, there weren’t fields full of them which I love. Almost all the zones are instanced so that when the area hits maximum capacity, players who enter the area are thrown into a new instance of the same zone. This helps to avoid over camping but most of all (since I’m on a PvP server) is a way to dodge gankers.

Well anyways, the single player story moved on and you had to switch between single and multiplayer multiple times below 20. If you were careful with which quests you chose to complete, you could completely avoid confronting another player in battle until level 17ish (a couple of the zones early game don’t allow you to damage other players). This way it let you get used to the controls before you got your face busted in by some guy in closed beta. I entered the underhall at around 15 myself because I was in a group with a couple friends and we quickly had fun causing a riot (in other words—maiming players). It was a blast.

Anyways, you leave Tortage at 19-20 and everything just gets better from then on. You don’t have night quests anymore and you go and experience the game with other players. I don’t have much to complain about save the UI, which is absolutely ATROCIOUS! I can’t stand it, but LedMirage (a modder from WoW) was quick to release a modification that I found a little easier to use.

The game isn’t for everyone. You can’t turn away from the screen anymore while attacking and make yourself a quick PBJ and hope to be alive when you get back to the computer. If you’re on a PvP server and don’t like the fact that almost everyone can kill you—a PvP server is NOT for you.

So, in short: awesome graphics, fun combat, the environment feels awesome, crazy cool classes (I can’t manage to pick a character), and an extremely stable launch.

I have a 40 Bear Shaman and a 33 Barbarian. I have also had multiple other level 15 or so characters.

Now, Micro, I would love to hear what you dislike about Age of Conan.

Demonologist = Warlock
Ranger = Hunter
Bear Shaman = take a guess....

May I ask what MMOs you have played?

Herald: This is a cloth wearing melee caster. He wields a two hand blade and uses demonic arts in order to subdue his enemy. He is a GLASS CANON. You either kill him quick, or he is going to kill you quick—and that’s case closed.

How is that ANYTHING close to a druid?

Assassin/Barb: Assassin is you’re everyday idea of an assassin. Carries daggers, stabs face, then disappears into the shadows in a flurry of blood. However, sins and barbs are nothing like their EQ/AO/WoW/SB/L2/SWG counterparts. The stealth (or hide system) is very different in this game. The feats these classes have are also quite original. A Barb is NOWHERE NEAR any rogue that I have seen…ever. It can use basically whatever weapon it picks up and is focused to do AOE damage….

Guardian: LMAO…A Paladin. THEY DON’T HAVE SPELLS. They have offensive and defensive abilities. They can use one and weapons and a shield or pole arms. They are you’re typical knight in shining armor.

Dark Templar: These are like the EQ Shadow Knights…nothing close to a paladin. They derive their strength by leaching others strength (a lot of their abilities leach stats, health, mana, and stamina. They are built to outlast their opponents, and when their adversary has nothing left, they deal the final blow.

Conq: Again, you have no idea what you’re talking about. The Conq is closes to a ret pally in WoW but at the same time, is totally different. A Conq uses a two hander or dual wields. They have auras and buffs that assist them and their party in combat.

Necro/Demo: I don’t know much about these two for I have yet to play them and don’t wish to either…but oh heeeeel no. They are nothing like a warlock. I won’t even argue this one. Go read the class descriptions on the AoC forums and you can see for yourself. Sure they use magic and have pets…that doesn’t make them a warlock.

Ranger: If they were hunters, where the heck is their pet? Also, why do these rangers have stealth?

Bear Shaman/ToS/PoM: If you are trying to say that these are your normal healers, you are 100% wrong. All three classes have cone HOTs and a large heal. I believe the PoM also has a lance heal. That’s all…the rest of their abilities are either self/party buffs or offensive abilities.

Throw away what you knew about classes from other MMOs…they don’t really apply to AoC. I ALWAYS play a rogue in MMOs. ALWAYS. It’s the first thing that I do. I am playing a Bear Shaman right now…sins nor barbs are what you would typically expect from a rogue class.

As for the rest of your post--it's been covered by other posters, and I really don't need to really argue with you, I think.

For those who read this, thanks.

Also, just out of curiosity…how old are you Micro?

I wish someone would come along and make a sand-box style skill based game like the SWG of old, that I would play, mix in some hot graphics and I would play it everyday.
Sounds a lot like Darkfall. Guess we will see at its release. *crosses fingers*
