The US Reporters' Embargo for Age of Conan is Lifted

Not the NDA that beta participants are held under, but it's close. Not at all unlike when the NDA was lifted on TR for reporters first and then a bit later for the general beta population, it seems all of us press-folk have been given leeway to print our material that we have ready.

Now, that doesn't mean I'll be posting a review here just yet. That'll come when the full NDA lifts with the rest of the blogging public. But I wanted to hop on here to link you to Ten Ton Hammer's Age of Conan Guide Portal.

Me, Machail, and Martuk have been working our arses off for the past few months to get this stuff ready and now we can finally begin to share the fruits of our labors. Straight from Machail's fingers, I'll let him do the talking...

That’s right folks, Funcom has lifted the NDA for US reporters (that means sites like this) and we are now free to talk about the game!

Let me tell you, it’s been one heck of a ride. Martuk, JoBildo and myself have been in game steadily working away for the past few months to get you all the information you crave; and BOY do we have the goods for you.

Over the next couple of weeks, starting today, you’ll be seeing quest guides, spell lists, and feats lists. We’ve got videos, screenshots, and more general guides. We’ve played through all the Destiny quests for the archetypes and will have those rolling out very soon for your reading pleasure. We’ve also got other big things planned, but I don’t want to spoil it ALL.

It’s been a lot of fun playing the game. We’ve played all the classes and are pretty confident you’re all going to love playing it as much as we have.

So, grab a chair and dig in. The hot infoz are coming at you.

Today, we’ll just point you over here where you can catch a glimpse of spell and combo lists. Some of these are complete lists as they stand today in beta. Others have the first 20 levels documented and will have the last 60 updated for you in short order.

Enjoy! And check back often – you never know when we’re going to post a new article.

What constitutes being a reporter? Are Blogger press? *stirs the pot*

Sweet! This will definitely come in handy during work and downtimes :)

@Keen: I know, right? Hence why I'm just plugging our TTH stuff for now. I'll publish my own blogging thoughts on the game when that's allowed.

@Rick: Enjoy it man. We've been busting our tails the past few months, and we've still got so much more on the burners. Just wait until you see our BIG PROJECT (tm).
