Owners of the Age of Conan Collector's Edition can now get their friends in on the blood-soaked action with the newly enabled buddy keys. The buddy keys allows current players to invite up to five friends to come play the MMO, free of charge, for seven days. Players need to log into their accounts, select the "Buddy program" feature, follow the instructions, then prepare to lay waste all their foes. Of course, there's the not-so-small matter of installing the humongous game. Although the game developers recommend that you lend your discs to your buddy for fastest installation, friends can alternatively spend $2.99 on the client download, which comes with an three additional free days of play time to offset the download time. Either way, this is a good time to start gathering up forces and laying all your foes to waste.
Instructions for sending buddy keys can be found here, then get your friends started by getting them to download the Age of Conan Interface Tutorial Video and the Age of Conan Combat Tutorial Video.
