I understand your concerns here; the old forums aren’t being deleted - just archived. We’ll be able to still go through and pick things out as needed, but please note that this new forum and the old forum are running on 100% different systems, so copying guides and info is a 100% manual process that will take time. That’s why I’d like input and help from you guys to see what to prioritize first. I also encourage folks to help out and move guides over on their own too. I hope that makes sense. Thanks
I read Chrizdc reply that there is a limit to the number of links we can put into a post. Would it be more efficient or helpful if we sent a private message with the string of forum posts we think are essential to be copied over to you directly?
I am hoping you can bring over entire threads for some posts as they contain useful information on multiple pages and not just the first post(s).
And I’ve also held back bombarding you with posts to give people time to migrate their own threads if they are still active on the forums and/or in game. (and recognising a lot of us are playing on Saga intensely.) But I think some have stopped a long time ago…such as the creator of the a couple of the raid guides as below that I would like moved to this forum:
Sure, you can DM me suggestions.
This post contains useful information. Burn to death dot damage increase with selfbuffs and target debuffs.
I don’t know if ANZU has copied his own material over but everything he mentions here: https://forums.ageofconan.com/showthread.php?193981-List-of-Quests-and-Achievements-threads
These two topics would also be useful:
Aaaaah! That amazingly awesome Herald Of Xotli beginners guide is gone!
I just dinged lvl 80 and went over to check it out for some pointers and it’s not there anymore!
Please tell me someone have it saved or something
I did not phew! So it’s here already. Thank you very much! I kept visiting it on old forums.
Bringing across this post would be helpful as well:
there are pictures and also a file link on that post that are useful as well
Unfortunately it looks like the image in that thread is long gone.
Not a guide but a spot where people can ask vanity gear hunters where to find particular types of gear: http://forums-archive.ageofconan.com/showthread.php?181208-Finding-Vanity-Armour-Thread
EDIT: Actually, since Photobucket stopped being an awesome free service, as well as many other image gathering apps, looks like there’s a lot of dead links and images. I’ve decided a new thread would be better (although I can link to this as a resource in the new one)
The build for both DPS and Tank Conq. Extremely useful and as such very needed.
This is why we need better forums with more sub categories.
People are unable to find information relevant to classes and then you get requests like this for things already here but are buried undermeath mountains of other threads.
Yes. The old layout was perfect and much better than this one.
But, to be honest, there are not many posts that would fit more sub categories, and the stickied posts are very well maintained by the mods, or are even in wiki mode, so everyone with a high enough trust level can edit them.
Take the class guides as an example:
There actually are some more class guides…but no one mentioned to a Mod or someone abe to edit the stickied post.
And a forum can be as good as it gets - it will not make more people use the search function
And it will not make more people choose GOOD headlines for their threads…
