DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH!!! also don't expect much from this game, content-wise.

I as well am considering playing AoC. I bought it last week but haven't opened it yet. From what I gather so far, the game is fun at the early levels but soon after it becomes clear that the game was rushed out too quickly. Although, 1-20 is supposed to be really great.

Interesting...

If that is the case, I shall level up a few toons to 20-25, then leave until the Gameplay is refined

Most offline games can be completed within the week, so I do not feel that my purchase is wasted. I hope that this game *wins* and adds something new to the mmorpg scene. If not, then I will have a fun-time until the free month ends lol.

Alright, I know Age of Conan threads have been pretty prominent lately...but there are a few questions I want to ask in an attempt to see if I want to spend the money for the game.

1. Is the combat system really THAT unique? From what I saw in the video they put out...it looks about as involved as a traditional MMO system....just slightly different. Is the combat system more of a nuisance or a breath of fresh air?

2. Is night time play always single player only? I am a person who likes to play MMO's into the wee hours of the morning at times...but not if I have to do it alone. Is the single player at night optional or totally forced?

3. How does the day/night system work? Is it more or less real time (as in WoW) or does it go through cycles through out the day (ala SWG with 1hr day 1hr night)

4. Are the cities considered safe zones in PVP servers? I don't mind being at risk when being out of a city, it's some neat realism, but I don't want to be ganked inside a city even.

5. How is the item system? Is it like WoW where you have to "raid" for endless hours to get the top gear, or is it more dependent on player made stuff.

6. Would you recommend this game? I liked WoW and have played on and off for about 2 years...but it's just too much of the same old same old at this point, I want something new and fun.

Thanks for any input guys.
1. Combat system is great, it isnt just a case of click the enemy once and let it auto attack

2. Until you reach level 19, complete that part of the story in SP then yes, MP is day and SP is night. But once you hit 19 and leave the first island, you no longer choose when it is night or day, it goes onto a dynamic cycle, just not real time.

3 Covered above ^

4. Nope, no ganking at all in cities

5. I havnt got this far yet, so i cant comment, sorry

6. I love this game. If you love MMO's then its great. Keep in mind it is less than a week old so it does have quite a few bugs, but thats understandable.


Hope this helps

You sure have nothing but negative to say about this game....so much to the point that I feel you just have some angry hatred towards it that is personal and biased.

So far I am loving it! (14 Assassin) it is more gritty and real than WoW... more down and dirty lol.

Quests are fun, NPC voices are good.

Yes there are issues but it has only been out for a few minutes.
