The Veteran system is coming. At last, players who have been long-term subscribers to Age of Conan will benefit from exclusive items and rewards in return for their loyalty. Read on to find out exactly what you may be entitled to:
Sticking with the game over a longer period of time should yield rewards, right?
That is why the Age of Conan developers are now introducing Veteran Points to the game. This will give players who have subscribed to the game for a certain amount of time a wide choice of different rewards to choose from. From exciting new pets to useful new equipment, the rewards are many and you have the power to choose.
These rewards are available at new vendor NPCs in-game and will offer a wide range of items, options and services that will only be available to veteran players.
The idea behind the veteran items is not to create items that make characters more powerful, but to offer convenience and social items for veteran players to enjoy, either to offer things like better travel options for their characters or to make things a little easier when they start a new alt character.
How do you earn points?
This new system works with Veteran Points, points that players will acquire for every month that they subscribed to the game. The longer a player has had an active subscription, the more points will be gained.
The rewarded Veteran Points also increases after every six-month period so even more points are gained the longer a player has been loyal to the game.
Month 1 to 5 – 6 points awarded per monthMonth 6-11 – 8 points awarded per monthMonth 12-17 – 10 points awarded per monthMonth 18-23 – 12 points awarded per month… and so on.
Points will be available for each character separately, so there is no need to ration points per character. All Veteran rewards are going to be character bound.
So, what do I get?
