Crowd Control is a term referring to all means used to control enemies position and movement. It is mainly used to prevent enemies from attacking one player or his group, or to prevent enemies from moving, kiting and fleeing.
There are two divisions of Crowd Control in Age of Conan:
Major Crowd Control – where the character is completely incapacitated. (Stun, Fear, Charm, Knockback)
Minor Crowd Control – where only some aspects of character control is impacted. (Root, Snare, Silence)
The Jade Citadel, the mysterious place that dominates the Paikang skyline, and is home to the Emperor himself. A beautiful place that full of horrific enemies, the dark legion army in first encounter already gave me a great first impression that it is not an easy task to defeat the might of empire.

As a fan of Age of Conan’s artworks for many years, I can see the design of Dragon’s Spine is different from the old worlds. The most distinct part is the sky, you can see there are many gradations between the sky and clouds but not just a fog in old worlds. When the light of sun goes through the layers, the colour is just amazing. Especially at the magic hour, the scenes are incredibly charming and brilliant.
The atmosphere and architecture of the map is so great that I cannot stop taking screenshots. Even there are only rocks and woods, it already makes me charmed. Compare with Khitai, I think Dragon’s Spine has a lower fantasy level design on lighting and climate system, and the chain of undulating ridges and hills is much more complicated. When you running around in the map you can feel the mood of ancient civilizations and excavations everywhere. I tried to capture such feeling in my Dragon’s Spine Gallery Collection, and I think i did it! Please enjoy the timeless moments from my journey :D
