PhysX? I thought they were trying to improve performance...

I quit playing when my guardian hit 80 last November. I wonder if the guardian changes will make it worth trying out AoC again. I don't feel like leveling another toon to 80 now.

Age of Conan: Pushing your computer temp up and players away!

Nah, just kidding (kind of). I can understand that Funcom wants to implement lua scripting and stuff, but PhysX!? Doesn't really seem like a good move if they want to improve performance of their engine.

Also: They should really do something to make leveling 20-80 less tedious. Almost all my friends who have tried this game recently have quit because they found the post-20 leveling process to be slow and boring.

Tedious?

A free level every 4 days? Leveling in AoC is a breeze.

Tedious? AoC is one of the easiest leveling games ever. Normal play can have you hit 80 in a couple weeks. In many games that's one or two levels of playtime. Anyone finding leveling slow has some serious ADD issues.

with xp potions which are available through different ways and the offline leveling, you can actually level a toon in 2 weeks. which is only recomended if you got at least 2 80ies - as you'd miss out the best leveling experience in the business.

Yeah, I've got a couple 80s, and four or five other toons over 50. 1-80 is definitely one of the easier level grinds on the market (comparable to WoW, honestly).

Where it starts to suck is the post-80 faction and AA grind. It's mind-numbingly slow (and built on repeatable quests which heightens the boredom), and even for someone who likes the game and gets paid to cover it, I find myself constantly rolling alts to avoid the Khitai grind.
