Races and Classes

Choose between four races and twelve diverse classes.

Are you an axe-wielding Barbarian, or perhaps you favor the Herald of Xotli's ability to turn themselves into demons? Either way, the choice is yours.

Choose between four different races

The story of your character’s life begins on a Stygian slave galley somewhere in the treacherous waters surrounding the Barachan Isles. Without any memory of who you are, or who you were, you now have the chance to start anew. Through character creation you must choose to play either as a Cimmerian, Aquilonian, Stygian or Khitan. Your racial choice will affect not only looks, but also the class options available to you and where in Hyboria you belong.

Age of Conan’s twelve classes include an array of unique and interesting classes, from new ideas like the Bear Shaman and Herald of Xotli to new twists on old favorites like the Assassin and Ranger. Our classes are set up across four archetypes: Priests, Mages, Rogues, and Soldiers, ensuring there is a class for every playstyle and taste. Each class features multiple feat trees, allowing for deep and intriguing character development throughout the game.
