Default Age of Conan

Does anyone still play Age of Conan? I know it was really buggy in the beginning, but apparently it has been fixed... A lot. Do any Hardware Canucks members play right now? I'm thinking of getting into the game when I get my computer finished. And if not AoC, what other MMO's do people play? Besides WoW, 'cause everyone has played WoW.

I still play a lot.

It is much better than it was, but they just launched a new huge patch, so you might want to give a couple of weeks for the bugs in the new patch to get worked out.

I'm having a lot of fun with this game.

Thanks for the helpful replies. I think I will definitely try the game out when my new computer is up and running. Is DX10 on the live servers yet? I hope to be running that. :D

Yeah, DX10 is working, if a bit buggy at times.

It's not dead. Still a fair bit of activity going on in game and on the forums.

The game went through some growing pains, but it's pretty good now and the combat system is fun. It really takes some time to get good at PVP.

Hm, sounds like I`m going to be trying it out. :D
How well does the game run in DX10 for you maxed out? Would single 4870x2 would be fine? And does the game support multiple monitors?
