It's a red-letter day in Hyboria - red with the arterial spray of fellow players. After many iterations, tweaks and adjustments, the huge patch to introduce the beginnings of the new PvP system in Age of Conan
is finally coming to Live. Of the major PvP changes, only PvP XP and gear are in so far. The notoriety system is yet to come, but shouldn't be too far away.Age of Conan
players have gone for quite a while without any significant patches, and today's gets a lot of ground covered
. There are several pages of changes and fixes, including an apparent fix to the annoying 'out of memory error' bug. This patch is the one many players have been waiting for as the 'make or break' addition to AoC.
Of course, a lot of players have already given up waiting and left; some will be enticed back, but how many?
It's too early yet to say if AoC,
which has had its share of troubles, is heading for a renaissance; but change is definitely in the air. With a new ruler on the throne
, the PvP upgrades finally kicking in, and (according to Erling Ellingsen today) Ymir's Pass and the Tarantia Commons in the final stages of testing, Age of Conan
may be getting some of its mojo back.
