Age of Conan Content Update Lets You Fight Thoth-Amon

Update 6 to Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures wil have to tide you over 'til the expansion, Rise of the Godslayer, comes out next year. Luckily, they've got Conan's number one nemesis to do the job.

In addition to a Guild Renown leveling system for guilds, inc Gamers reveals that Update 6 will introduce Thoth-Amon's stronghold as Tier three raid content. The big bad guy himself lies at the center of the dungeon surrounded by his allies — many of whom most players haven't seen before.

"As far as the encounters go we don't really want to give away too much. But who knows: perhaps someone will have to pay the ultimate price, having the Mark of Acheron reapplied, and maybe washing up on a beach near Tortage, again? Ok, so maybe we won't do that. We do hope the encounters will prove a fun and interesting challenge for everybody. I'd dare say the foundation we're building our raid encounters on has improved radically since Wing 3 was released, and I think that will be reflected in the encounters."

Update 6 also lets you fight along side Conan himself in a plot-related quest that ties up a major story arc. But details on that are more closely guarded than the secrets of Thoth-Amon's stronghold.

The only thing I'd like better than that is a Thulsa Doom dungeon modeled after the one in the film, Conan the Barbarian. I know, I know — Thulsa Doom is a Krull baddie by canon, not a Conan villain. But James Earl Jones was awesome in that movie and the snake orgy scene would be a great player versus player environment.
