Wayfarer is a tool for Age of Conan players used to automate updates to Waypoints and Custom User Interfaces. By using the Update Now functionality you can
get the latest versions of all of your external add-ons, update your waypoint data, and launch the game instantly!
Wayfarer Waypoint Database
When players submit their waypoints to the database, they are stored in the Wayfarer Database. The master database is compiled once every 60 minutes into a consolidated listing of waypoints organized into groups. At this time the names are cleaned and standardized, and duplicate waypoints are merged. As players submit their waypoints and the database grows the waypoints will settle into their exact locations. Waypoints that are unable to be auto classified can be voted on via the Wayfarer website to ensure an accurate grouping of every waypoint.
Advanced Waypoint Data
All waypoints within the Wayfarer Database contain advanced attributes. These attributes can be configured via the application preferences screen so you can see as much or as little of the extended data as you like. This extended data can include level ranges, quest information, or resource tier. New data is being added to the database constantly, so updating your waypoints often is key to staying on the cutting edge.
Using a hierarchy of catagories each waypoint is assigned to one or more groups allowing you to filter out which waypoints are visible to you. Using the extended display you can even filter down to each individual waypoint type, giving you total control over your waypoint filters in an easy to use system.
Wayfarer includes the ability to immediately start Age of Conan once updates are completed. The launcher conatins the ability to bypass the Age of Conan patcher, patch the game when required, skip the movies on launch, run the game at high priority and enable unique DirectX options to enable an FPS boost.
The Wayfarer Team is working closely with multiple authors for custom user interfaces within Age of Conan. When complete Wayfarer will give you the ability to install, update, and merge multiple user interfaces together, giving you the best play experience possible.
The Wayfarer website has a built-in browser for custom user interfaces. Using the built-in ability to install, update, and merge custom user interfaces, the website is able to highlight the most popular UI's, and give people a unique insight into how other people play Age of Conan.
The Interactive Maps available via the website provide at a glimpse access to the hundreds of waypoints, locations, and types across all of Hyboria. The interactive maps can also provide you with direct links to the Age of Conan Wiki for specific waypoints, allowing you to quickly look up quest information for your current location.
Wayfarer Item Database
The Wayfarer Item Database is a reference lookup tool for mod and script authors to find specific Age of Conan Item ID's for inclusion in helper scripts and chatbots in game, giving rapid players easy access to vast amounts of item stats with a few clicks. The item database will be extended over time to include more information, including item stats and crafting relationships.
