It's an MMO, not really visual oriented. That said it's a lot more than what most MMO's currently have.

Thanks for that. I really don't know what server I'll be playing on. I guess I'll wait and see where OCAU players gravitate to.

IMO I like the visual style and graphics. I was playing in the starting area one time and saw this huge ass sting ray flew by. I was like damn... wow...

Black Cloud Earring... enhances health, mana and bust size.

Be more specific? There are some known problems with Windows 7 that are fairly easily worked around if thats it.

Made me late for work this morning Started a Elyos warrior on Seil named Maintank. Game looks nice, fairly well polished for a beta but I guess thats because its been retail in China for a while now. One thing I couldn't find was a latency indicator, while I'm not expecting Oceanic servers and I didn't pick up on any noticable lag, it would be nice to get a rough idea on how handicapped we'll be in Abyss PvP.

Yea that's annoying too, not having a latency icon.

It's allfixed for me now, most people were saying it's a Gameguard problem so I disabled my firewall and it's all sweet. Gameguard though srsly, so bad.

Nice, I played for about 45mins at 6am this morning but I'm stuck at work all day today Got to level 5 and was fairly impressed so now I'm really looking forward to getting home and having a crack at the chain abilities

Oh, and a hint at level 9, drop everything and do the new campaign quest. It gives you a whole level. ie. it gives you however much XP you need to hit 10. So no point doing anything else besides it.

ps. you get a nice weapon at the end too and off to a new zone.

Anyone having problems while playing Aion, minimising and starting a program (like Firefox or iTunes)? Me thinks it's GameGuard's fault.

To the mods, can we perhaps get this made into the offical Aion thread? With a prefix maybe?

There's some good preliminary info in here so I don't wanna lose that with a new thread if possible.

Nah I'm fine with alt tabbing etc. Are you running it in windowed (fullscreen) mode? It usually helps if you do.

lol most of their marketing is based on the visual aspects. The only reason why people were attracted to the game initially was due to visuals which, as time permitted, promoted more in depth knowledge on the content itself.

Imo the visuals arent as good as TERA, but they do the job and are better than a lot of mmorpgs out there. That said, the content itself seems to be polished and looks like a great game to sink your teeth into. Ill be playing TERA and KOTR as well, good few years for mmorpg gaming.

Sorry if I wasn't being clear but I have no problem with the alt-tabbing itself. It's if you start a program, such as Firefox, while Aion is up. Try it for yourself, start Aion with nothing else opened, minimise then try to start something. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Outlook, and iTunes don't start if Aion is active (at least for me anyway).

Anyone able to confirm if this will be subscription free like Guild Wars? I've been told/read mixed information. I'm guessing not, no mention of subscription free on their website suggests to me that it would have a charge.
