Just like before, the Player is starting out in the sand dunes of the Exiled Lands, Same old song and dance with Conan the Barbarian. This mod was designed to add to the Experience of the Exiled Lands and the developers do not want to take to much away from that experience. So the First thing you should Prioritize is selection of your Faction.
Sub factions may require lvl. 80 in some cases to join. Factions do not require a lvl. to join. But some feats may have lvl. requirements. Magic has Faction, Feat, and level requirements, all of which have been added to the spell charts.
The Faction System gives the player the option to choose one of Six Factions, which offers unique building materials, gear, utilities and weapons. All factions now have access to magic spells, garnered from NPC's scattered about the Exiled Lands.

Professions in Age of Calamitous should be the primary way for your character to make AoC currency (Tin, Copper, Silver, and Gold Coins.) In addition, you will earn Guild Tokens, which are used at the Guild Vendor in the Faction Hall to buy pets, pet cosmetics, and tool upgrades.
Please Note: You are allowed only One Profession. However through the magic of Pippi Kits, The Pack Gaming has made the other Professions available. Please see the section on Exiled Lands Pippi kits.
To enter a Guild find the appropriate named NPC, and speak to them (E). This will unlock the profession and give you a bonus starting boon. You can select from the following Professions:
Hunters - use harvested animal materials like meat, hide and heads Moonshiners - use vanilla alcohol recipes and several AoC exclusive drinks. Forestry - use wood products and herbs. Farmers - use raw and cooked food and have a lot of auto-generators for ingredients. Miners - use mined minerals and processed bars.
You will find any chosen Guilds in your Feat panel under the Decorations tab. The initial feat is level 10, and the ability to craft the base station for that Guild. The follow-up feats become available at levels 30, 50, 70 and 100. The Base Station is the station you will craft your "Bundles" for sale in. To employ your station, you will need a thrall trained in that Guild, and the Tin coin currency to pay them. Profession Thralls (Miner, Lumberjack, Farmer, Fisherman, Brewer, Skinner, so far) can be found in various AoC Encampments across the Exiled Lands. There are two public Market Traders, at Sepermeru and Flotsam. A player may also purchase a Market Trader for their own base from the Dispatch Contractor in their particular faction's headquarters through the Faction Hall, which costs 2 Gold, 5 Silver and 20 Copper AoC Coins.
For a much deeper look into the AoC Professions, please use this guide. ~ Written by @Chumm of the AoC Discord. :https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1h1JPWSTylKyz8FfdZ5IGFkiL7IC945t67rRbPDo57t8/edit#gid=2079898551
Bobby is a unique vendor who offers special items as well as the option to hire Sir Lanis Brunhild and himself as personal merchants. You can also choose to fight Bobby and Sir Lanis by stepping in the portal behind his throne.
He can be found in an Underwater Cavern that is hidden in the passage between the North and the Jungle in G11. Or The other entrance at J9. (The Following guide is written from the perspective of entering the caverns from G11. If you enter from J9 you will need to fight several scourge pets as well as vanilla Conan cave denzeins.)
(TAKE Adequate TORCHES or light sources and LOTS of Breathing potions, the new elvanor mask is also a great boon for this trek.)
You will need to dive down in the first lake next to the steps platform and TRUST when you reach the floor of the lake. (You will "Harry Potter" the lake bottom)
You will enter into a new underground (water) labyrinth of several caves with mostly harmless but still scary looking sea creatures.
Inside this first cavern you want to swim forward hugging the left upper wall until you come across a big collection of circling Eels. Swim further in through them and continue.
You will be in the middle cavern now. Keep swimming straight forward. When you come across the big mosasaur/"whale", look for a large spire of rock.
Surface and get on the small beach at the base of the ruins. Climb the side and you will find the Magus and one of the tomes. (YOU WILL need CLIMBING GEAR!)
Here is where the Magus of Blood Magic, and a magical tome, are located. The Magus provides the Tome of Blood magic for 5 emrald shards. Look around the floor for the book. It is on the back right side of the platform. Stand on the book and look away from the camp, in direction of arrow looking edge of the rock. Jump off that arrow of stones back into the water.
Jumping down and swimming to the bottom of the lake, you will see an entrance almost directly in front of you. Go forward and at a random rock separating the passage go on the left side to avoid the spikes. There will be three more spikes in front of you but you can see those more easily and swim above them or avoid them.
You will see a gateway that means you are entering the Large central cave. You will always see glowing goop on the left side of the cave wall so if you don't like the dark, follow that.
Going straight forward from the entrance you came in from you will see some mosasaur bones and ruins.
When you see the rock wall to the right of the Ancient Ruins, just past the Skeleton. Swim between the Ruins and rock wall. You will see a Face looming out of the gloomy water.
You will surface just before the cave that holds the Face. There will be a beach and a monolith wedged into the wall on that beach. This is the Monolith of Electrical Burst.
Once you have acquired the knowledge from the Monolith. You will dive back into the water and go straight down. Find the Face again, and this time swim directly under the chin into the cave behind it. Here you will see a Ruin with a doorway.
Once you have found the doorway enter and turn to the left immediately to see the Monolith of the Felgarth.
Swim out of the doorway and out of the small cave holding the Looming Face. Now directly to the right and follow the wall to an opening with a mosasaur vertebrae in it.
Swim in over that and turn to the right. Now swim until you see a small opening with a stone spire in the middle of it.
You will want to swim to the left of the stone spire and then on into the ruins on the other side. Swim straight through the ruins (good place for ore hunting later on). You will see a pair of circling sharks, and a massive ships hull.
Very close behind the massive hull to the right (You may not see it) you will come across massive ruins that looks like structure from the sunken city. Inside you find the Arcane altar still underwater.
Swim inside and you will find the Arcane Altar itself and can attune your magics here.
Swim out from the room with the ORB and above that boat hull that is directly in front of the entrance, swim straight up over the boat hull and there will be a strip of land and Bobby's sanctuary, and his portal.
So unless you want to retrace your steps back through the underwater caves. The portal behind Bobby's Altar is the only way out. (The green swirl next to the Sanctuary).
If you walk through the portal you will want to just jump down the middle and fall safely in water next to the exit, or leap towards the walls to grab onto it and slide down safely.
Stopping to fight Bobby is a challenge and he WILL attack you if you stay around for too long. There is a stair to the right of the center well. If you are fast enough, or brave enough you can run down this to the bottom floor and dive into the lake you entered the Underground Passage way from.
