Age of Conan - Opinions?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So I was at futureshop and I picked up age of conan + rise of the godslayer expansion for $5, comes with 30 days.

I had heard when it came out there wasn't much endgame content so people dropped it, but it looks like it has come a long way. Anyone still actively playing this or did before? Curious on what your thoughts are.

Just throw it away and save yourself the time of finding out that it is terrible. No balance, still glitchy, and filled with shills - at least it was on the free week they gave to previous customers.

It is a shame too because the open pvp made the game so fun.

When I played casters where better than melee characters in everyway due to the glitchly-ness of how melee characters had to use their combos combined with server lag.

And also back then you could swim up waterfalls.

Dude you asked for our opinions and you are going to play it anyways why even bother to ask? Shouldn't you have asked before you purchased it!?

great game as of the expansion, prior to that is was i would consider average. If you enjoy the traditional mmo gameplay, with a few unique twists, its the game for you.


what attacted me to the game initially was the conan lore, huge fan here. The game was originally launched in a fairly broken and unbalanced state, they take taken great lengths to right the game and i believe they have. Health issues caused me to quite playing a few months after the expansion, and i think about jumping back in fairly often, but i am trying to stick to holding off any new mmo til guild wars.

The lore is what sets the game apart from anything else, i personally feel they did probably the best job you could possibly do turning an IP into an mmo. Stygian, aquilonia, and cimmerian quests are vary greatly in what they want you to do, while they are mostly the same kill 20 of this. their reasons ar entirely IP correct.

So, if you like the traditional style of MMOs like wow, everquest and things like that, Age of conan is really right up your ally, and if you like blood and gore, and the violence that is extremely pronounced in the literature, you cant go wrong here. Finding a good guild isnt hard and the game is alot of fun with friends.

I just have personally over the time become jaded with the holy trinity of MMOs, and the slow death of real rpgs that i have quite playing them. I tried to be as unbiased as i could here.
