How realistic is it to find people interested for purist dungeon runs as a new player?


One of the reasons I want to play AoC is to experience the gritty setting dungeons as one would for the first time like back in the day.

How viable is it that I find like-minded people in the game and form groups for that purpose?

I’m playing on Crom and seeing the population makes me skeptical so I thought to ask here to be enlightened!

Thank you!

Solo player trying to fill a PUG, probably about zilch. Especially in the lower levels. Once at 75-80 than you might have a fairly good chance.

Your best bet is to get into one of the two low level guilds; Vilayet Sea Snakes or Iron Circle.

Thank you for the detailed answer, now I got a better idea of what to do & expect :+1:

It’s doable on weekends, earlier when you have both EU and US population on line. It might take some patience. There’s a consistent trickle of new and returning players, they seem to reach a decision point on staying around the upper 30 and 40 ish level range. If you can get a group together and arrange a time frame to do things, you can probably get multiple purist dungeons done with the same group.

You can try to recruit ppl here in the forum. I’m interested.

Gotcha, I’ll aim to do just that, thank you for the pointers!


In-game name is Rasunemun, level 41 Tempest of Set, feel free to add me :+1:
I’m from Greece so I play during the EU time-frame mostly (Around 17:00 - 23:00 GMT+0).

I’ll attempt to form a Black Castle purist run tonight, let’s see!

I make a new toon just for that. That means it will take a few days before I can join. We can talk ingame about best time, cause I have raid on a few days (Wednesday, friday, saturday) during the prime-time.

Damn, sounds like quite the quest, I wouldn’t want to lock you down to leveling a toon just for that as I’m not sure how much time this endeavor will take, if it is a waste of your time or/and if it can be coordinated perfectly but in the end it’s your call!

Give me the name of your toon when you make it so I can add you on my alt, I may make a PoM Healer just for this purist campaign and continue with my ToS as main.

Just want tp point out that you can stop pve progression/leveling in the menue options, if you want to stay at a certain level for a dungeon a little bit longer to wait for people to catch up.
