Age of Conan has turned eight years old, which means that if it were human it would be about time for it to start sending off applications to college. (That’s eight years old, right? I think that one is eight.) That means it’s time to celebrate, and the game is doing just that, starting with a new Zingarian Swamp Beast pet offered to all players who log on between May 20th through May 29th. If you need a white lizard to follow you around as you adventure in the game, this should solve all of your needs.
Players can also purchase a Hoard that is itself a Hoard of Hoards, which combines all of the Hoards into a single cheaper Hoard that you can buy at once. There’s also the promise of a membership revamp coming soon, along with a new subscription reward system, although it didn’t quite make it for the anniversary. Or you could just complain about the festivities on the forums. That’s almost as much fun, right?
So here’s to eight years of Age of Conan, and may it have an even better year once it turns nine and would be legally allowed to name pets. (That’s nine years old, right?)
