Age of Conan Class Interview #6: The Ranger

Posted Mon, Feb 04, 2008 by B. de la Durantaye

As the holidays have come and gone, it's time to continue the regularly scheduled Age of Conan class previews. Fresh off our trip to Oslo and the Funcom studios, the Ten Ton Hammer staffers were full of questions regarding the Ranger class. In the subsequent class interview, you will find answers to questions regarding mounted combat, climbing, tracking and much, much more! Read on for more Age of Conan and Ranger info!

Yes, we still have a first-person targeting mode although it is not the only method of participating in ranged combat. Given the hectic nature of many of the fights, we felt that not having a "lock-on" mode would lead to a frustrating experience for the players in some situations and thus we have included that as an option in addition to first-person mode. Both modes of targeting lead to a very different gameplay experience but we will leave it to the player to decide which they prefer.
