A few things every new Conan player should know

You went out and just bought the game and you are gung ho ready to play when you return home. Here is a list of things you should be aware of when you are going to make that purchase.

1. Aoc requires a very good PC to work. I know on the box it has minimum requirements to play but really the recommended requirements should be considered the MINIMUM. I know a person trying to play it with the minimum and once you get to tortage(starting city) it becomes unplayable.

2. Choose your server wisely. Some servers are already at heavy loads which means if you make a character on that server you will have to wait to play. Also beware if you are new to MMOs do not choose a PvP server as ganking is major part of the game and believe you will get ganked and often

3. The world is huge so find your rez points in any zone as fast as possible. You will die often early on and it sucks to have to run along way across a map when you could have walked two feet to a rez point.

4. Questing is the way to go. Conan rewards you well for questing. Do not try to grind mobs for experience. At higher levels mob experience is negligible

5. Group often and early. I recommend finding a guild of like minded individuals and group for quests. Its fast and safe way to level. MMOs are social games and are meant to be played that way
