depending on when you were there last, it has changed a good bit with the last couple of issues (i12 is in open beta now on test server) they introduced an Auction House System, Rikti Invasions, Invention & Enhancement recipes. I guess I don't see it as any more repetitive than any other MMO out there, ( I've been in a few, they all are basically the same), just different subplots,loot,badguys, etc. I've been there (CoH) so long , I practically know everyone, so I have a blast playing, running missions etc with a large group of friends that run together quite regularly.

So Xanthus how is Age of Conan?

The more I read about it, it makes me want to upgrade my PC and try my hand at an MMO again.

Seems kind of weird to do the first 20 levels or so solo though. That seemed to be one of the main deficiencies in WoW. So much solo play no one knew how to group and dungeons were painful.

Anyways, would love to hear your thoughts when you take a break from it.

AoC is pretty fun.

I am on the server that begins with a "G".

http://aoc.housepaladin.org is my guilds server.

It's pretty darn cool.

I forsee myself picking up AoC. Need to upgrade the PC first, which should be ordered this weekend if all goes well. Also need to track down old friends and guildies and see if people are playing.

Does the "mature" theme get old or does it tend to attract 15 yr olds? That is my main fear. I like the idea of a mature world, but don't want it to seem gimmicky.

Combat sounds sweet though. I can't wait to see how PvP pans out. Collision Detection *drool*

Sounds good. I am thinking I will get it once i upgrade the PC. I have junk now, but will be moving to an 8800gt and core 2 duo so it should be better.

I have been doing the healer role lately, so I am really excited with the idea of collision detection. I will prolly do the usual, level a bunch of characters and see what I like best.

Is there a faction system in this game for PvP? Like race wars among the 3 or is it just free for all?

The pvp servers are FFA or racial FFA. I am not a fan of FFA so I chose to be with a group on a PVE server, HOWEVER...

You can flag guild vs guild pvp to destoy cities, I hear there are battlegrounds, and I hear you can be a "sellsword" and flag with a guild for in game coin.
I am currently loving the preist of Mitra.

I play WoW, probably a bit too much. I am currently on stormstrike BG and PvP is the only way to play. Here is a link to my prof http://www.wowarmory.com/character-s...rush&n=Yakarue
