I am here to bring you the latest and grates info on what is coming down the pipe:
The Coils of Ubah Kan dungeon looks like live ready (almost) and it is already itemized. Since I know that is all you care about here are some fresh screenies of epics and blues:
|Assassin mask. I am not big fan of SDS armor design, but it beats HOC and Fort for sure.|
|Assassin epic legs|
Let's look at new epic legs stats compared to the most commonly used Blades leggings of the hidden tomb
8 more armor
9 less const
468 cr + 25 dex = 468 +75 Combat Rating = 543 = 24 more combat rating
7 more hit rating
no difference in critical and critical damage ratings
So....seems like new Chaos legs are veeeeeerrrrrrrrry minor upgrade to Tomb legs.
The difference in health is +72 HP and whatever stamina loss from constitution is mitigated by +25 dex.
But we are talking here about +0.67 DPS difference, but still an upgrade and a way to gear up faster than "kill & pray" Yag runs.
The dungeon has several bosses and looks neat.
More so there is now a new quest in SDS that will reward you good blue pots for killing the bosses. I don't know if this will be an incentive alone to go into dungeons, but it's good that the Devs even thought about offering a little more than in Khitai.
What else do we know?
This is great news, not only epic drops are guaranteed, but also clearing up trash can get you extra drops (like epic hands from Wyrm dungeon). Seems like Funcom decided to that Wyrm won't be re-designed (too bad IMO), but people will still be able to get it's loot via trash mobs in Coils (source).
But the exciting news keep on coming:

We get to learn a lot from this post:
- Funcom is aware of itemization problem.
- Funcom is working on new content that we don't know anything about yet! I can't imagine that it is PVE content (with so so soooooooooo many dungeons coming) so it might just be....*gasp* ARENA SYSTEM???
- At least 1 Funcom Dev is dedicated to Age of Conan only and he doesn't slack during summer (wow, just WOW!).
What about the mergers? According to this thread paid server character transfers are as of now disabled because of pending merge. This was supposedly confirmed my a GM.
Mergers in September? Could be!
There you have it. I think there is a lot to be looking forward to.
