Ich war ja fast froh, als es in Age of Conan ab Level 80 nichts mehr zu tun gab: Da konnte ich diesen Zeitfresser endlich liegen lassen. Aber nun ist’s vorbei mit der Ruhe, das Addon hat mich wieder voll in seinen Bann gezogen. Es dauert zwar recht lange, sich in der Khitai-Story voranzuarbeiten und bis zu den tollen Rüstungssets durchzudringen, dafür lassen die mitunter recht kniffligen Bosse jede Menge nützlicher Klamotten fallen. Herrje, ich bin wieder süchtig!
We shouldn’t really have to sell Rise Of The Godslayer to loyal fans, but we’d happily recommend it to players that left the game due to bugs and balancing issues. Age Of Conan’s changed much for the better.
All said and done, Rise of the Godslayer is exactly what Age of Conan needed. Rise of the Godslayer is the perfect dose of awesome to bring a mediocre game that once had a lot of potential into adulthood as one of the industry's best. Much like Anarchy Online before it, Funcom has revived a game that struggled at launch. Hopefully players will take notice and give the Barbarian King's MMO another chance. It certainly deserves it.
Fortunately, Rise of the Godslayer is a stable expansion, which means you can enjoy its solid quests and idyllic environs without many technical struggles. And these new areas are well worth investigating, whether you've traversed Kylikki's Crypt a few dozen times or have never so much as heard of the Fields of the Dead. And if stability issues and early content gaps caused you to turn away from the original Age of Conan, Rise of the Godslayer is a great reason to revisit this blood-soaked world.
For those active in Age of Conan already, however, Godslayer is a great step for the game. With well-considered new features, glorious artwork and fantastic music, it demonstrates Funcom's design and art teams firing on all cylinders, building on the work done by the technical team in bringing the game up to scratch over the past two years. Conan isn't about to threaten the biggest players in the MMO space, but it has found a niche for itself nonetheless, and Godslayer sees it settling into that role in confident and well-executed style.
Funcom have put a lot of work into Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer, and it shows. There is a great deal of polish to the landscapes, the music is exceptional, and there is simply a lot to do. Where Age of Conan falls short is in variety, and if reputation grinding is something you cannot abide – and for many MMO players, it is – then Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer is not your expansion. For everyone else, the alternate advancement, new dungeons, factions, and the land of Khitai are all good reasons to return to Robert E. Howard’s brutal world.
