Age of Conan’s next progression server appears to be Saga of Blood

At the very beginning of 2018, Funcom rolled out a big update for ten-year-old Age of Conan: a “saga” server, basically a temporary progression server of the type popular among older MMORPGs the last few years. While the Saga of Zath server came to its planned conclusion already, the studio was always clear that it wouldn’t be the only one, and that future saga servers would have different rulesets.

Well, now keen-eyed players may have uncovered a bit of what that new saga server is thanks to a hidden message buried in-game underneath the daily rewards screen. Right now, it appears to be named Saga of Blood, at least if everyone’s reading the clues right. That Funcom loves its mysteries. I suppose under those last two crates, it could say “haha jk,” but probably not.

We played through Zath when it was still live; here was our first look at the first iteration of the server.

I loved AoC and to this day haven’t found another proper Mature rated mmo since. I gave the last saga server a shot and I couldn’t convince a single friend to give it a try, so got bored after several days solo. Half the reason I put 800 hours into Conan Exiles was because of AoC.

the leveleling experince for the first what 20 levels is one of the best in any MMO. but after that i tried many times to level to max and just couldnt’ do it. It’s a shame because they did such a great job with the intial expereince.

It’s a Saga PvP server, apparently. Altho the game is pretty much in maintenance mode for live, i’ll be there playing because the game itself is really fun.

I was gonna guess that with a name like that, it was gonna be a PvP thing.

And because Zath was a PvE server. Honestly, it was fun. People talk about how Tortage was good, but i enjoyed the rest of the progression. I had quite a bit of fun. The classes themselves are pretty creative, and i loved my DT.

I don’t trust Funcom anymore than i trust Trion, nor do i think they’re competent, but the game itself is a relic from another time, and i’ll be sure to check the server out, at least while it’s thriving.

Of course they’re going to fuck it up, but hey, players can manage.
