Funcom have confirmed we're able to mirror the Age of Conan client for Early Access peeps, so if you're sick of battling the international crowds, you can start nabbing it locally from AusGamers. It's a 14gb download divided into 8 smaller chunks to make it a little easier to download (well, that's the theory; I'd prefer one big download myself). Even IE users should be able to download each chunk with their inferior browser.

Direct links to each of the parts:
Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, and last and least, Part 8.

Can't this be a torrent? Be better served if everybody chipped in - especially at 14GB?

Does Optus have any unmetered sites for this kind of thing? I haven't been up to date with this stuff...

The official client is just a torrent; it has like 12,000 seeds so I'd recommend just using that

How exactly do you get early access? I've pre-ordered a copy from JB but I didn't get any kind of authentication key with it. I don't want to download 14g of data and find out I can't use it.

im not sure how jb do it, but at EB you go in with your reciept and they give you the codes and s*** required.

also can anyone tell me what the death penality is in AOC, i tried searching the various aoc wikis around but cant find any info on it.

Gonna wait until near the end of month before I start leeching this unless I can grab it off someone before then.

I think you have to sign up on the funcom site and pay an extra $5 - I read around a bit on it last night and the process is poorly documented and there's certainly a lot of people having problems on the official forums. I think there was a limited # of early access spots. See here for more info

If you have purchased the preordered, you make your account here by entering your preorder code. Once your account is created you are given this option

Which costs $5

EB no Limited editions left but do have the code. Ezygames and JB claim to have limited editions left but don't seem to be issuing the codes.

ive had a bit of a look at this game over the last few months, wats the big fuss about? Can anyone sell this to me in under 50 words? The era does seem appealing.

From what I saw in the beta, when you die in pvp there's no penalty

When you die in pve, you leave a gravestone, and you have a 10% penalty for 30 minutes unless you go get your gravestone.

This effect can stack if you die multiple times and don't collect your gravestones though

yep pretty much skill based combat, gore, wenches and good gfx rolled up in the awesome gritty conan style.
Posted 05:43pm 14/5/08
ps. patch for early access is up
Posted 06:02pm 14/5/08
I played the open beta up to lvl 20... wasn't that impressed TBH

I decided to not even buy it
Posted 07:06pm 14/5/08
Someone's just pointed out that a couple files weren't unzipping properly; totally my fault - one of the file servers was being stupid and I forgot about it, so a few of the files hadn't fully copied over.

DON'T PANIC - your download isn't hosed. Just go back to the download page, get new d/l links, and resume your download.

Monthly pay?
Posted 08:14pm 14/5/08
$15 US per month
Posted 09:16pm 14/5/08
just an fyi for all those currently downloading or are yet to download and havent actually activated there early access

according to AoC forums, early access is closed now. If you got in, youre in, if you havent at this point, youve missed out

sux 2 be me, already downloaded the client and was yet to recieve my early access code due to being on night shifts and sleeping during eb's operating hours.
