As I mentioned on the audio Blog, I have been playing a lot of Age of Conan since the launch of the Rise of the Godslayer expansion. I picked up where i left of with my level 33 necromancer. Now I will freely admit that while I like AoC, there are still a lot of things I don’t quite get.
So one of my guildies invited me to do a dungeon, which i was more than happy at. Unfortunately I had no idea where this dungeon was. So about an hour and a lot of help later I was only just beginning to figure out were I was going (I will be the first to Admit my sense of direction sucks). Maybe it is just me but AoC World Map doesn’t make it very clear where things are and how they are connected.
So after an hour I had died a couple of time (once form a fall and once from massive bunch of rather stabby enemies), and the group had fallen apart. It is safe to say I was a bit pissed off. Then I got to thinking that I had never really been lost, not properly, in a game before. Even the big MMO’ s it is really hard to do.
At the time it was pretty god damn frustrating, but in hindsight I kinda of liked it. In my humble opinion getting lost is actually quite a lot like getting to know a place, even if it is unintentional. I have been lost in the real world loads of times, and chances are you usually discover something you didn’t even know was there.
So my recommendation of the week, pick a game and head off into the wilds with no particular destination in mind, just to see what you find.
Good luck my brave adventurers. (Too much?)
