Great article. Conall's Valley has given me and my friends a lot of good times when we want to test out some new classes in PvP, and we'll often find more targets there because players have to stick to the narrow paths most of the time.

Really looking forward to your Godslayer articles. Only a little over a week now till we head east. :]

Had most of my grouping in Conall's Valley on my first run, it was a popular place. I love the mountain scenery there, but I have to say that Purple Lotus Swamp is pretty darned cool too.

I'm very excited for the expansion and a new 20-40 zone level! Pretty sure my new main will be Khitan. :)

Yeah I did Lotus back at launch, which is why I went to Conall's this time. I'm sure I'll do it again as I start to flesh out my army of alts.

Good times.

I'm sure my new main will be Khitan too. I cant wait for the expansion. I'm still loving the old content too thought since I;m back and working my way through the 50's on my DT.

Do you recommend Dark Templar for mostly solo and sometimes grouping? I LOVE the barbarian but I can't roll one as a Khitan, so I was thinking DT or bear shaman though I'm not fond of 2 handed weapons. I might get desperate enough and roll assassin... *eek*

DT does superbly solo and is a great tank for groups sometimes as well. I split my points in between the DPS and tanking tree so i can be good at both and it solos well at the same time.

I was thinking about a BS too. DT is much easier than assassin. I have an assassin at the same level that used to be my main.

@Deadalon:

Why yes, yes I will be telling you about the expansion, and I hope to see more of your insightful commentary on that piece. Tbh, it doesn't really matter that I have multiple 80s in the beta, as being at endgame isn't a requisite for reporting on anything other than raids and whiny veteran angst.

For most people, it's about the journey.

I'm not even sure if Deadalon is a veteran or someone STILL pisy his machine couldn't run AoC at launch.

The launch for me for smooth btw, it's only later that I had lag issues, and those are now gone.

Beautiful adventure game is what this MMO is, it could have been more but so far this, it does well.

@Jef

I'm sure Deadalon's commentary will still be just him jumping around the fringes of these forums yelling 'they release too soon! they release too soon!' while the rest of us are happily smacking down ninjas.

Anyhoo - I'm in my 50s now on Cimmeria and just finishing up Field of the Dead. This game is strikingly beautiful... I plan to reroll when the expansion is released - I'm loving my Sin right now, but may reroll a Ranger.

For most gamers its about the journey - For Funcom its ONLY about the money...

You are all welcome to say whatever about me.. I have played AOC - I even had a lvl 80 chara before the game went live.. I know what went on then. And I very well know what is going on now. Sadly NDA is preventing us to actually tell things like they are. Once more.

What MMO company isn't only about money? What do you think Blizzard is about these days? ; /

Until you yeld and play the game again in its newer state (thats under new management fyi) your word about "what goes on" is worthless.

Same here,I doubt Deadalon ever reached level 80 or even did Tier 1,Xibaliku/Slaughterhouse/Commons/Iron Tower.But we are now accustomed to his angst.

Lately I've been spending all my time on Wiccana (as well as the Godslayer beta). That said, I also have a 20ish ranger on Cimmeria.

I'm so excited for the X-Pac that i keep revisiting this because its the only AoC related posting in the last few days. I'm feeling like a kid before X-Mas presents.

Daedalus, seriously. Give the game another shot. Your hate is unfounded now. I'm an early access member who quit a month after the game came out. I came back five months later and quit after one day because the server I was on was empty. I then followed some friends back, rolled on Cimmeria and have enjoyed every moment since.

They have learned. Too late for some, but not for me.

Since I have reading expansion news I can now tell the old zones are extremely bottlenecked, and am looking forward to open zones that are being advertised. Also the AAs are a big attraction for me since I'm an EQ vet and it sounds a lot like their AA system.
