Couldn't tell you, I'm still (for the most part) doing the single player portion...My Demonologist is only 16! That is unheard of for me (to go that slow), but my family has undergone a problem or two since launch

to the guy considering selling his WOW account on e-bay....be warned, your account will probably be banned as Blizzard regularly checks e-bay auctions as their EULA prohibits transferring ownership of an account through sale. I'd recommend markeedragon.com for a more discreet medium of sale, though beware of scammers as that site is flooded with them (though there are many legitimate people as well).

edit: more on topic, I played WoW regularly sine release until recently. Overall, it is a good game, though IMO not worth getting into at this point of time, when a fresh and promising game like AoC just came out. I'm currently a lvl 26 Barbarian on Deathwhisper and can say that the PVP in AOC is more fun, sporadic, and seems more skill based, even at low levels. The quest system IMO is also a lot easier than WoW, which may be a good or bad thing pending the player.

The equivalent to a WoW "normal" server in AOC would be simply "PvE", which never forces a player to participate in PVP, though gives him the option to. I play on a PvP server which is basically free for fall, though I've found that there isn't too much griefing going on. If you played normal in WoW, I'd recommend PvP in Age of Conan for the change of gameplay style but PvE if you don't like getting randomly killed, or randomly killing people. There's also Culture-PVP which limits PVP to other races (your own race being an ally).

I play on Deathwhisper which is probably the highest populated server, 9/10 times I have to wait 2-3 minutes to be able to load in as there is almost always a queue because the server is "full".

When is the last time WOW got any new servers? My 4 toons are on Lethon and the population is awful for a newer server. (<2 years old)

I currently have a 21 Priest of Mitra and so far its blowing WOW out of the water. I did get aggravated and rerolled to a PVE server though. I just couldn't handle the ganking in the Underhalls which seemed nonstop.

Well ive been playing for a while, almost at lvl 6 .. must say im glad i switched from wow to aoc, the gfx are great compared to wow, i much prefer the way the combat is in aoc to wow & i love the blood and gore, not a childish game ... played for a while then got a message that the the servers where going down for maintenance lol.

Im playing the same at 1200 x 1600 with x4 AA and the view distance/sliders at a around half way ... seem to get 40 - 50 FPS most of the time.

For those who are currently playing WoW. Stick with WoW. It is a far better game than AoC. AoC is horrible. The crashing, the bug where you lose a level when you log out and the gold farmers are beyond bearable. Don't wast your time with this game. You will only wish you never left WoW.

Now for those AoC game-rs. We don't want more WoW players coming to our beloved game and screwing it up. The last thing I want to see in OOC chat is more Murloc crap. We don't want this game over populated. We want just enough people to make it profitable for AoC so they will release more content and big enough to have a good base from which to have massive siege battles. : D
