Funcom will be showing the game live at the main stage, starting at 23:45 on Wednesday evening, when everybody is ready for blood and severed heads.
Erling "LordOrion" Ellingsen and Shannon "Pharamond" Drake will both be attending and are looking forward to showing the game/reuniting as a comedy duo for thousands of screaming Age of Conan fans. (Well, maybe not all of them are Age of Conan fans, but we're sure we can find a few!)
We'll see you there!
Class Interview #9: The Tempest of Set
Ten Ton Hammer have published a new class interview. This time it's The Tempest of Set turn.
Questions by Benjamin “Machail” de la Durantaye and Cody Bye
Answers by Evan Michaels, Game Designer for Funcom.
The Priest class interviews are finished up with the Tempest of Set. Evan Michaels returns to us to tell us all about the class. As this is technically the newest class of the lot, we had a lot of questions. We find out where this class has come from, where its strengths are and how it all balances out.
Ten Ton Hammer: The Tempest of Set is the newest class to be announced by the team; a result of the removal of the Scion of Set and a merge with the former Druid of the Storm. What can you tell us about the class? What sorts of abilities were brought over from the Scion of Set and what roles does the Scion now hold in a group situation?
Evan Michaels: The Tempest of Set is an evolution of many different class concepts which eventually become consolidated into the class we have available to us today. The Tempest combines almost all of the unique aspects of the previous Scion of Set, Druid, and Stormcaller classes, focusing primarily on a mix of healing, area-of-effect lightning damage, and crowd control.
