First retail patch notes for Age of Conan released

Michael Zenke

It's been less than a week since Age of Conan launched, and today we're seeing the first patch to the retail game. That they're patching so soon isn't unusual in the slightest; as a newly-launched title Conan will probably see a number of tweaks and updates over the next month or so. It is unusual in two ways, though. First, Funcom has chosen to release this patch on a Friday, going directly against an old MMO-management adage. Second, the patch notes are locked behind the paid-subscriber's only area of the official forums.

For your edification, the notes are located below the cut. So far, no major updates to report in their patching scheme. That might depend on your point of view, though. The players stuck in the Lacheish Plains are no longer confined to that area. No further players should be 'stuck' their either. Atzel's Fortress has been tweaked, and crafting has received a number of minor adjustments. The Tempest of Set class has had their Spellweaving privileges revoked while the developers work out what's wrong. Just a hint to the Setites: lead with your left hand.
