    Ok theres 2 versions of the game for people who want to play it.

    1. Completely Free to Download & Play
    This is the original game without the expansions completely free to play unless Funcom changes their mind next year (which is doubtful).

    Download Client:http://r047.d1.funcom.com/torrents/AOInstall16.2.8_EP0_Live_nointro.torrent (Torrent)
    Create Account: https://register.funcom.com/newuser/aofree



    2. Download the game + 2 Expansions packs completely free ($20 usually) and play them free for 14 days
    After the 14 days, you own the software if you pay for a month.

    Download Client: http://www.anarchy-online.com/content/downloads/tryout/largeclient.html
    Create Account: http://www.mmorpg.com/ao_sl_trial.cfm (You will need to sign up to mmorpg.com for free and then sign up for an AO account)



    Anyone up for downloading it? Im going for the 2 expansions deal.

    The clients are different, so download the correct client.

    They have become free because they are trying to get more people to play, plus they are working on Age of Conan.

    Anyone tried out the game? Its still 100% free to play, this is a game from Funcom. Updates are frequent and support is awesome.

    They are coming out with Age of Conan soon.

    Im Vistrax in the game if someone wants to add me.

    I used to play this back in the day, had an MA and an Adventurer. I might come back if OT makes a big enough showing, and preferably plays OT (Omni-Tek :mamoru:)

    I didn't like this MMORPG. I liked the modern setting and stuff, and the billboards adds. But it felt too cheesy. To much of an attempt at real life settings but didn't contain enough power to do so.

    Not sure what you mean...

    Its a futuristic Sci Fi rpg, its not for everyone obviously but it fits the genre perfectly.

    I am downloading the client right now, and would be extremely happy if I had some OTers to play it with.

    Give me any info I need if I was to start playing tonight. :)

    Says your offline. I just bought all the starter armor and such I don't know if that was a bad idea. My profession is Engineer and for my skills I am just doing the "IP" function since I am a little lost.

    At work at the moment but ill be online in about 3 hours time.

    I started a new engineer last night too lol level 13 now I think. You dont want to do the auto IP function...

    Read a bit through this guide (not too much though):
    http://forums.anarchy-online.com/showthread.php?t=463195

    Its a big guide but it goes through all the basics including what stats you need to spend your IP into.

    But the 3 main skills you need to focus your IP into are intelligence, matter creation & time and space.

    RK1 used to be extremely crowded, alot of people are on RK2 now though lol

    We need more OTers on there, we could start an organisation if enough people join.

    I joined clan, and I have been out of newb island for some time now Vistrix, I haven't seen you on though. I am getting really accustomed to how the game works now, and I am having a lot of fun with it. It would be great if we got more OTers to play!

    Fixed my Laptop's CPU fan, it doesn't overheat while gaming anymore. :bowdown: So I'm downloading the client.

    What classes do you need? I usually like action oriented characters more but I might be persuaded to try another class.

    Well im on almost every night...

    Ive started a new character, engineer was a bit boring for me...was hard to kill things fast.

    Started a Fixer last night, level 15. Ill be on tonight so ill see if you're on.
    I usually play the support role in mmorpgs, my main is a Doctor which can be fun but staring at HP bars non stop can get tiring lol

    All classes contribute, the game is very balanced although at later levels doctors tend to be a demand in teams. Meta physicists are also extremely popular because they give out awesome buffs.

    I might try a melee class, maybe another MA, or perhaps an adventurer. Not sure yet tho. Never tried an MP but I'm not much of a fan of pure caster classes.
