Anybody who liked this game before but got stick of all the buggs, unbalanced classes, choppiness, lack of items and so on i urge you to give it a re-try, the game is a blast NOW, if Funcom had waited that extra few months to get the game as it in now at re-launch i guarantee the game wouldent have had that drop of players, people are slowly comming back though and those that hated it before love it now!
Are the items still completely useless?
The stats on all the items at launch were mind blowingly sucky.
Had a lvl 80 HoX before I quit.

Well for a blue drop for my barb, one of my light armor - I get like 0.2% damage deflection...which is kinda useless. So to answer your question...stats for semi rare and rare drops needs to be re-thought and done.

They should have a system where the armor would provide damage deflection say 5% as combined total of all stats etc. But I think they are not concerned about that right now.

HoX pretty much rule these days along with ToS! Seriously no one comes close to these for DPS if feated correctly.

a ToS can even one shot some classes

Well after playing for a couple of weeks, I think the game is fun but I'm disappointed into how seldom I run into other players in the game. I'm grinding through PVE content and I'm at level 27 and I've run into less than a dozen other real people in the game! Funcom may have done a server merge but it seems like they need another one!!

If it continues like this, I'll definitely go back to Lord of the Rings Online. There were always a ton of people around to group up with on that one. I'm still enjoying playing it as a single player RPG but I won't pay $14 a month for a single player game... I'd just as soon play The Witcher again or pick up Drakensang for a single player experience.

That does bring up one gripe I have with the game. The spotty voice acting. Sometimes characters are voiced when you interact with them and sometimes they aren't. Makes it feel VERY strange when you interact with non voiced characters as it seems like they are mute or something... They should have went all or nothing on the voice...

It's a dead MMO, what do you expect? The developers drug their feet and promised up a bunch in which they didn't deliver.

There are 3 worth playing right now and this is not one of them. LOTRO, WoW, and WAR are the only good ones.

What server are you on?

If on Wicanna, look me up as Muyaman (lvl 80 Barb), Muyan (Lvl 71 Guardian), Muyaz (Lvl 42 Bear Shaman), Muyatos (Lvl 34 Temple of Set) or Muyazconq (Gimp conq)



Then again, I am on HKG time evenings Still we have a fair few players looking for groups etc / Raids / progression group quests or grinds

Next big patch is focused around stats, so hopefully this will change.

Seems like DX10 is almost ready, and looks really nice. Especially now that they added real 3d grass.

I play on the european servers, and it's seems like there are at least as many players as in launch.

Yeah I think the main player base of this game must not be in the US.

On the server I'm on I rarely run across another real person and when I do they seem to be in a timezone outside of US.

I think even the forums show this, if you look at the Age of Conan US forums compared to the Europe forums, BIG difference in traffic.

I was enjoying the game as a solo experience up to level 38 when I went to Poitain. In Poitain I *constantly* crash. I hard lock with a solid color screen and screeching/looping sound. I have tried upgrading/downgrading my nVidia drivers as well as trying the game under Windows 7 beta and the same lockup occurs. I can play for hours on end in other areas but I lock in Poitain everytime.

The frustrating part is I want to contact Funcom for tech support and they seem to have no way to file a ticket or contact them. I have posted the tech issue in the forums and of course no one responds because the forum use (US) is so low.

So I'm probably giving up on this game this week and going back to LOTRO. It was kind of fun while it lasted but overall no more fun than my brief stint on Asheron's Call 2 or Star Wars Galaxies. The real fun factor seems to be lacking, probably because of lack of other players just like AC2 and SWG when I tried them.

The best MMOs I've played so far are Dark Age of Camelot, WoW and LOTRO so it's back to LOTRO for now...
