How is the AO Community doing?
Its waxes and wanes. I' say its about the same from the last time you were in game. Enough to function as intended and enjoy the game in most all aspect, but small enough that everyone knows almost everyone else. Can be difficult at times to get things done when its slow, but the weekends are pretty decently rounded out.
Windguaerd wrote:Is AOU still the #1 AO Fansite?
Absolutely. For awhile people were using it less as many new encounter guides were missing and/or older ones were sorely outdated but with the addition of Bitnyyk and myself, he's been writing new guides and I've been going through and updating existing guides on a decent basis. We have a few more interviews lined up and as soon as Khuri ensures the site is secure on our end, I'm sure we will be back at it.
Windguaerd wrote:How did things work out with AO being on Steam for a while now?
I am honestly not sure why they bothered. They launched it on Steam and then immediately put the game in permanent "Maintenance Mode". They patch mostly when there are exploits and holiday events, with an occasional small update for mechanics.
Windguaerd wrote:The new engine has been out a couple of years, were the revamped textures finished?
The easiest answer is a simple "no". Nor will it be. They have no intend of continuing that endeavor at this time according to FC Devs.
Windguaerd wrote: Did FC finish the prof rebalance?
To FC's satisfaction, yes.
Windguaerd wrote:Any new cool quests for lvl 100, 150 or 220?
I cant remember what was out when you came back. I'm pretty sure you were not here when they opened "The Reck". Its an interesting new zone they added to RK with missions and quest lines from 90-170, though any level can enter the zone. https://www.ao-universe.com/index.php?i ... 10&pid=629
They added a New Inferno Mission instance to Inferno for 170-220 players with some interesting loot on the bosses. Some like it, some prefer to do old Inferno missions.
I think you may have been here when they changed Battle Stations but its no longer Clan/Omni as they have gone with a Red/Blue system. So you can pick a color and end up with a team of the opposite, or mixed faction.
