    and

    * Whats is the story like, is it immersive or is it abit wishy washy?

    The PvE level cap is 80 and the PvP cap is 20. So far i quite like the story, the dialogue is much different from other MMO's, it feels like a Bioware rpg at times. However i'm still doing quests in Tortage so i don't know how the story holds once you leave.

    So, again... Is it a typical MMORPG like WOW or LOTRO? What's new in this? I know the fighting system is different but that isn't enough to sway me. Any interesting innovative features? Or just typical quest after quest grinding?

    Mostly quest grinding with raiding later on, however you can build guild PvE cities and fight mob cities. There's also guild v guild siege PvP in the Border Kingdoms.

    the graphics are great lotr cant even be compared to it. if youre really trying to be "swayed" into playing the game you should go and visit the official website as im sure no one in here really gives a rats ass wether you play it or not. its an mmo of course its going to be similar to other mmos in game play style or else it probably wouldnt be an mmo. check the website read about it ,view screenshots, watch videos do some reasearch if you really want another mmo to play, but stop saying nothing is swaying you or youre really not impressed or do't justify paying a such amount. maybe you should play archlord, that should be cheap enough for you, how can u complain about not being swayed when its free

    I run the same exact settings, except shadows turned off.

    And only because I prefer to have 50+ fps instead of 30, its playable either way.

    How about you shut your mouth and go away?

    EDIT: This is a joke. I have to register the retail key to be able to enter the official forums? So I can't just go and read about the game where it would be most appropriate, no I have to buy the bloody game first?

    The truth hurts doesnt it? Why dont you make any effort to find out yourself? Expecting everyone to hand you information on a silver plate and even then you throw crap in their faces.

    Get off your high horse dude...

    I tried... I have to buy the game to be able to go on the official forum and learn from actual players about the game... That's wrong.

    Yeah i agree thats quite rubbish. Also it seems that euro players cant go to the official US forums and vice versa.

    I am not continuing playing this game until they do something with the performance. I am not playing this game on medium settings with BILINEAR filtering (thats what it sets it to on default with medium gfx). I can have up to 100 fps outside the city with 2xAA, bloom, 1680x1050 with lots of options on max (except shadows). When i get to the city it just falls to 5-10 fps.

    I work just 10 mins from the Funcom offices + a Funcom employee pops into our store every other day so ill give him a dosage next time i see him ;p

    the graphics are pretty good, definitely the best out in any mmo, but of course it really depends on your tatse in what type of graphics you prefer. i also play eq2 and i prefer it over wow graphics because i think its more realistic where as my friend plays wow likes wow better because he likes the cartoon look. yea i was going to mention having to register to view the forums which yes is very retarded, but they say they will be opening them to the public before too long. theyve made combos part of the fighting system, where as u cast a spell or ability and then it will show a follow up move to finish the combo. they already have something similar to this in eq2 called heroic opportunitys (ho's) but it is more intuitive in aoc. i personally think they have dumbed eq2 down to be more like wow (i feel wow fanboys coming in force now) which theyve made it easier to do everything to attract a bigger fanbase because people are lazy and feel like its too hard and time consuming to do anything, but thats the nature of any mmo, time consuming. this is why so far i like conan its still pretty tough to accomplish quests and to travel. one thing i dont like about it is it seems that the zones are pretty small and cramped in where you can actually travel around in and paths seem enclosed, not huge open zones such as found in wow and eq, but then again im only lvl 9 and i hear that once u get in the higher lvls you have a lot more zones which are really big and open. and from the screenshots ive seen on the website it does appear this way. if youre looking for a challenge and some pretty nice graphics (more realistic wise) then give it a try, the 1st month is free but of course u need to provide a cc so that way they can charge u for the next month if u dont cancel. i like somethings about it and i dislike some things about it. i still log on eq2 and play to get away from conan and vice versa. try score a buddy key from someone if you can, hopefully before too long they will release a demo area to try and attract more players, but with the numbers they have in sales i dont think theyre too worried about anyone other than the current subscribers, unlike eq2 and wow that have been out and compete against eachother and are always trying to attract more players, u can buy eq2 with every expansion and adventure pack atm for like $30. the official website for conan has alot of info on the gameplay and the graphics ect.
