WOW.... how I miss you AC. I played for 5 years and I have to say that the gameplay is still better than most MMOs on the market even today. The always changing mobs,gear,and dungeons made that game the best. I still remember my first run to get a lightning stone for my atlan weapons... that my friends was crazy. I still think the combat system was great. Being able to scale your attacks power and direct it (high, mid, low) was great and that was needed to find weak points on mobs.

And any AC play can agree... the greatest world boss in any game was and will always be ... the one... the only... the feared... Pooky the white rabbit!!! (LVL 666 and could lvl from killing players :) )

Thanks for the story Justin... this made my day.

Reading these comments brings back alot of memories. Started in open beta and played for alittle over 3 years on Frostfell.

Looking back I think one of the best things about characters was that they continued to evolve past the level cap(lvl 128 I think it was). Even if it cost 50 million exp to raise something one point(or whatever it was lol) your character kept getting better. Eventually you kept adding points and you could feel the improvement. Games these days aren't like that. They offer better items but characters are basically lvl capped and static. AC offered both...New items and being able to use them better in time.

Only played as a archer which was a pretty weak profession but if you knew the game good you could do amazing things with one. I've since then always picked weaker characters to play.

It could really suck to go through your death items(high value stuff) and have something you worked a long time for drop on your dead body and have to go back and get it. Usually it was in the middle of pure HELL. Working together with friends to get yours or someone elses stuff back before the body disappeared could be the most EPIC of adventures.

I miss it.
