Nah I described it poorly. For instance I played a Templar and Furious Strike chained off into Robust Strike or Shouting. Every time I hit Furious Strike I was given an option to use Robust Strike or Shouting. Think of it like a mixture between /castsequence and finishers on rogues/druids. It's not totally linear as you still have choices and most (if not all) require the previous ability before they can be used.

I'm pretty sure I'll pick this up, even though I got burned before trying to replace wow with aoc.

Difference being, that AoC hadn't been tested. At all.

From what I understand, Aion's been retail for ages... this is just the westernised version.

@cs-cam: Cheers for the info

Yup, its all about the translating the game to english.
The translations are still a little weird. Stuff like "Extract Vitality" for the collection skill.

well, the developers seem well aware of the fact that there is a correlation between huge breasts -> successful mmo.

I'll be playing of the metrosexual dudes though, unless they fix the sfx.

Does anyone have a spare beta code? If not whats the cheapest place to get a preorder and get a code asap? Does the NCSoft store allow people from Australia to purchase properly?

I prepurchased from the NC store, was very painless and quick and worked fine, no hoops to jump though. The normal edition is US$49.99 I think.

you dont get the 6 inch woman with the giant busts in the GAME version of the CE.

Ebgames will gladly charge you extra postage/handling for the busty girl.

Default Aion Oceanic Fansite

Hey guys, glad to see you're all enjoying Aion Online.
Seeing as we're all from Australia/Oceania I figured I'd shoot you guys a link to the official Oceanic community site with forums etc.

I had a read over the forums rules and I don't really see much about posting a link, not really advertising, topic related.

Come make yourself at home on the forums at http://aiononline.com.au

OK so I'm thinking about preordering this, can someone please clarify, do you get a beta key with your preorder? Is the beta stop/start until release or can you play in beta right up until the head start period begins for the real game instances?

I've pulled the pin on wow (again) and have been looking for something fresh in the genre to entertain me.

thanks in advance.

These are the closed beta dates. There will be an open beta after these, not sure how that is going to work, hopefully it wont be every weekend. Its not like they have much time between mid august to mid sept before release.

Closed Beta Event #4 - July 17-July 20 Focus: Elyos and Asmodian levels 1-25
Closed Beta Event #5 - July 31-August 3 Focus: TBD
Closed Beta Event #6 - August 14-August 17 Focus: TBD
