Question Age of Conan vs World of Warcraft?

So ive been playing WoW for afew weeks now, still pretty new to it ... with AoC just releases ive been thinking about swapping over to AoC while im still only in my early lvl stages in WoW, whats peoples views on AoC compared to WoW? ... i do like WoW but it would be good to swap to a game that's just been released and getting the chance to lvl up nice and early.(i like being a veteran old timer in games)

Basically how does AoC compare to Wow? witch of the two in your opinion is best? witch game yould you choose? Aoc or WoW?

WoW is more polished, has far more content, is friendly to newbies, and provides players with several character progression options. Age of Conan is brand new so it has some balance issues and design flaws, but it has potential to be a much better game overall, taking many lessons from previous MMORPGs. Also, the lore is a lot cooler and far less "pulp fantasy" than WoW. It's up to your own personal tastes. I played WoW regularly for 4 years and cancelled my account recently - I haven't looked back since AoC came out.

After playing WoW for a couple years AoC is a nice change. They are both good I just played WoW for too long and got bored with it. With AoC though I'm loving the gore and adult content. Definetly more realistic and not as cartoonish as WoW is.

I would stick with WoW if you only just started, it has more to offer for new players, I would sit and wait on AoC till things get tweaked and polished.

If your wanting to try something that just been released then you can give AoC a try, but keep in mind not even WoW had its end game content in after release.

You will be more than ok. The only change I made to my system in my specs below is adding 2 more gigs of ram. I have a slightly better video card, but you have a better processor. I can't give you FPS, since it runs so butter smooth that I havn't bothered (except a few hitches when you first zone into an area, but that seems common in today's mmos. It has way less hitching than Vanguard did.) I'll check my FPS tonight. Anyway, after the previous verbose text I will go out on a limb and say you will be fine...

**EDIT** Didn't notice your resolution. I can't speak to that, since I'm only running at 1440x900...Someone else here should be able to give advice about that.

I play wow @ 1920x1440 ... with all the eye candy at the highest, if i could play aoc at least 1600x1200 with a little eye candy i would be happy, i dont really play a game thinking of FPS... as long as the game runs fine, smooth ect then im happy.

Hows the community in AoC compared to WoW? WoW's sucks unless you know people ingame. If your just starting out for the most part its hard to get groups and run with other people.

Is AoC very group focused?

It's a good balance of group and solo. Basically just like any other MMO...If you want the good equipment or want to roll people over in PvP, group up.

@ the OP: Find a buddy pass for AoC and try it for yourself.

If you start on one of the new servers in wow, youll find alot of people leveling up that you can group with. trying to level on an old server will cause you to level alone alot of the time.

WoW is great for anyone starting out.. and AoC is great for anyone who is getting burnt out on wow but NEED to be playing an mmo.
