Ask the Devs: Week in Review (April 20, 2008)
With the launch of Ten Ton Hammer's Ask the Devs feature, the forums
have been overflowing with questions that Age of Conan fans want
answered. Jason "Athelan" Stone has stepped up as Funcom representative
to answer those very questions. For those of you who like just the meat
and potatoes, we have compiled a list of this week's questions and
Another big "Thank You" to Athelan for coming out and answering seven more questions for us this week.
Arda asks: "Will there be stealing in the game?"
LordOfShadows asks: "We've all heard Age of Conan of being a massive online world... and about how detailed it is. My question is how "open" is this massive world? Is it more linear (but not nessarily instanced) like Guild Wars? Where the zones are long paths all connected together? Or is it like Everquest where there are large open zones to explore?"
Groguzzler asks: "I noticed from a handful of videos that there seemed to be multiple mount speeds. Can you, for example, coax your horse to walk, trot, or gallop? Will prolonged galloping affect your mount?"
Shaleist asks: "I recently just saw the Instructional video on the UI for AOC and something unexpected was presented. It appears that conquerers have mana bars. I'll get right to the question, which other non-obvious classes have mana bars? I assume the DT does have it now, but how about the Assassin and the Ranger?"
Entaro asks: "Will European credit cards be allowed for billing for US accounts/game time?"
Idred asks: "Can you tell me how many characters an account can hold?"
