I did it. I subscribed to AoC! (For some terrible reason, even though I’m not a resubscriber, this popped into my head. I find the mental image of my barbarian walking down the streets of Brooklyn with Kotter’s theme song playing hilarious.)
I went ahead and signed on for a year. I hope I don’t rue this choose as a mistake. The game has been really fun, and the deals Funcom was offering – $98 for a year, with the client (and its one month of game time) thrown in for free – seemed like the best way to go. In the past, my biggest fear in playing MMOs is “not getting my money’s worth.” I dodged that bullet with a lifetime sub to STO; I hope I’m able to keep the fear away in AoC with an upfront sub of 13 months. Also, today is my birthday, so the expense is quasi-justified.
Also, the bonus Hyrkanian Headguard looks sweet; I can’t wait till I’m level 40, so that I can use it.

So how does everyone break down their skill points? I’ve found a fantastic barbarian skill guide here, but I don’t know how out-of-date it is, or if there are contrary bits of advice I should know? I don’t really plan to do much in the way of PvP, if that helps direct any advice given.
Also, being completely new to this game, I have no friends. Loyal readers, drop your monikers in the comments, so that I might friend you! (GeeCee, this goes for you, too – I keep not being able to figure out your Priestess’ name!)
