Age of Conan

For a game that was released seven years ago, “failed,” and then relaunched as a free-to-play title — and is owned by a company that’s not doing so hot lately — Age of Conan still gets plenty of attention from its developers, as shown in its most recent monthly development update.

The big change seems to be the moving of Tier 5 armor bonuses to the recently introduced runes, making T6 items more desirable. The final boss of the Palace of Cetriss, the newly resurrected Ethram-Fal, is live on the test server, and there’s new functionality coming to the LFG/LFR system, letting players experience easier versions of the main storyline dungeons and raids.

For October, a Halloween festival is in the works, and, somewhere down the line, a crafting revamp. Which leads me to ask: People dress as barbarians, sorcerers, and the like for Halloween these days, so what does a barbarian or sorcerer dress as for Halloween? An accountant? A librarian?
