Update 1.4 is Live!

Update 1.4 is live

The much anticipated Update 1.4 is now live on the Age of Conan servers. With two new dungeons opening up for high-level players, your Hyborian adventures have now been extended with many more hours! We have even added a mid-level dungeon called The Cradle of Decay, and we have opened up a whole new wing in Black Ring Citadel that is sure to provide more hours of raid gameplay. If player vs. player gameplay is your thing, you might be interested to hear that we have now introduced new resources required to build battlekeeps - resources that can only be gathered in the Border Kingdom areas and as such must be mercilessly fought over to be acquired! So dust off your Drinking Cape and step into Hyboria once more, as the Age of Conan continues to unfold.

The depths of Xibaluku open up

Explore the depths of Xibaluku

New in Update 1.4 is the level 80 group dungeon of Xibaluku. Xibaluku is an instanced dungeon set in Thunder River that introduces countless more hours of challenging gameplay, epic encounters and, of course, lots of valuable loot. Explore this terrible home of a tribe of savage Picts and unravel a story that will surely chill you to the bones! This dungeon also focuses on repeatable gameplay, containing dynamic content that changes depending on how you and your group handle the many challenges you face. Depending on how you play certain spawns may or may not become available, and the same goes for loot! This time around we have also put more effort into making boss fights more interesting, and players will have to develop unique strategies in order to defeat them!

ALSO: Take a look at the trailer video for the Xibaluku dungeon

Explore the horror of the Slaughterhouse!

Explore the horror of the Slaughterhouse

In addition to the Xibaluku dungeon we have also added a new level 80, solo dungeon known as The Slaughterhouse Cellar. Also located in Thunder River, the Slaughterhouse is actually the key to gaining access to Xibaluku. Players will need to go into Thunder River and locate the right farmhouse and perform a series of quests within the narrow and haunted corridors before they can descend into the darkness of Xibaluku.

New social pet reward

Get an undead follower

With the introduction of Xibaluku we will be adding a new, exciting loot reward: your very own undead! Battle your way into the deepest depths of the dungeon and fight the darkest creatures you can find, and perhaps you have a chance of actually obtaining one yourself. We are kicking off with two social pets: the Corrupted Self (pictured above) and the Ancestral Spirit. They are both rare drops and they are only available in Xibaluku. Both of these social pets will follow you around, spreading gloom and dreadfulness!

Further enhancements to PvP now live

Further enhancements to PvP now live

In an effort to continue improving on the player vs. player experience in Age of Conan, following the comprehensive consequence system update, we have now implemented resources specifically required to build battlekeeps - resources only available in the Border Kingdoms! Now you will have to fight to obtain your resources, and even hinder the development of enemy guilds by keeping them from collecting theirs! What we want to do with this new system is add even more dynamics to the power struggle in the Border Kingdom, making guild vs. guild gameplay even more ferocious! Also new in Update 1.4 is an improved search functionality for mini-games, making it easier for you as a player to identify popular mini-games and join one that is about to start soon.
