Joel Bylos Updates on AoC’s World Events, PvP, and More

Posted Mon, Mar 03, 2014 by Martuk

Age of Conan (AoC) Game Director Joel Bylos has returned with a new update on the development progress for the new tradeskill revamp, the continuing world event, and the continued Dragon’s Spine development. The Palace of Cetriss and The Slithering Chaos dungeons are nearing completion. As for the tradeskill revamp, Bylos only stated that the “tradeskill slaves” are sill slaving away and inching closer to release.

Bylos also discussed Tier 4 PvP gear, class balance changes, and addressed questions about a possible exploit in a Tier 4 raiding lobby.

"People have been asking for a long time about whether the way that some guilds have skipped to the second lobby of the Tier 4 raiding instances is considered an exploit. We’ve looked at the problem and we don’t want to remove the lobby, for obvious reasons, so we are going to add a teleport that can be accessed on the outside by anybody who had completed the first few boss fights.

This means that going forward, teleporting to the Memory Cloud raid is legitimate and available to all – and we will adjust drop chances accordingly. This gives everybody an equal chance to access the Memory Cloud in the future."

Get all the details in Bylos' full update.
