Throne of Destiny is a solid expansion pack, bringing needed updates to the world of Asheron’s Call. The graphics upgrade, increased level cap, and additional content will keep players enthralled for hours. Existing fans will find this to be a blessing in many ways and should definitely consider buying Throne of Destiny. New players might not need the additional content right away, but should consider getting the graphics upgrade. Asheron’s Call has been a steady contender in the MMO genre for a number of years and it shows. Still, don’t let its age fool you. In the fast-paced, competitive world of MMO design Asheron’s Call has withstood the test of time. Its solid design and detailed world are still a good place to find adventure if you can hear the Call.
There is a lot of great stuff in Asheron’s Call, period. There is an enormous landmass populated with hidden dungeons, strange creatures and mysteries begging to be solved once more. But right now its gathering dust, unwanted by those who have been there and done that, and unknown by those that come into the game only to tempted by the best xp, the best loot and the quickest route from A to B. While we can hope that others find the same enjoyment we once did, we can’t kid ourselves that there aren’t already more glamorous alternatives available.
There are lots of new aesthetic features, but nothing that really changes the game's formula. If Asheron's Call was enjoyable to you at one time, then this is a new way to have that same fun. However, if you tried AC and didn't enjoy it, then this is just more reason to stay away. For current or recent players of Asheron's Call, there is absolutely no reason not to get this expansion; but new players and those that parted with Dereth on poor terms beware.
Schade, dass Asherons Call so alt ist. Der visuelle Anspruch des Titels lässt einfach zu Wünschen übrig, auch die verschiedenen Abenteuer decken erfahrene Online-Rollenspieler schnell auf. Spaß machen die großangelegten Abenteuer in Gruppen, doch auch hier bietet der Titel auf Dauer zuwenig Abwechslung.

Asheron’s Call: Throne of Destiny suffers from the same affliction every long-running online RPG suffers from--feature bloat. In catering to its paying customers, the game has become too confusing, too intimidating, and too hostile to new players. If you’re willing to put in a lot of effort, new players will find the world of Asheron’s Call rich in story and plentiful in content. But for everyone else, it’s a game that’s well past its prime.
