Age of Conan Review
Age of Conan’s most innovative feature it the action-orientated combat system. This is a boast many of today’s MMORPG Games make, but in Age of Conan, it’s true. You don’t simply tab-target an enemy and then let your auto-attack finish them off, Age of Conan gives you total control over every swing of your sword. When attacking with a sword you can choose which angle to attack from, avoiding your opponents defenses to achieve maximum damage, this unique feature adds a skill element unlike anything you’ll see in other MMO games. Maybe you consider yourself more of a spell caster or a ranger? Age of Conan caters to every player adding skill elements to all forms of combat, giving rangers the choice of targeting manually for extra damage, and spell casters the ability to chain or combine spells for maximum effect.
Whether you’re the type of player that likes to lead a guild or join one as a member, Age of Conan provides one of the most activity field guild systems ever seen in a Fantasy MMORPG. Age of Conan utilizes an in-depth crafting system that not only allows players to craft traditional items such as weapons and armor, but also much bigger projects relating to city construction. Each guild can send it’s members out to complete quests, defeat monsters and participate in PvP, earning the guild Renown points. Renown can be spent on upgrading the guild city to include an exciting array of features such as Temples and City Walls. Although building the cities is great fun, the best aspect is the involvement of large-scale PvP sieges. Opposing guilds can declare war, and then attempt to defeat a guild at their castle, creating awesome PvP battles with more intensity than a real-life firefight.
Age of Conan provides far more depth than just the features listed above, such as a fully voiced tutorial experience, unique mounted combat and a huge variety of quests and other PvE related activities, making Age of Conan one of the most expansive free to play MMORPG games available.
