Hi, any aussie legion I can join? Me on tiamat. Cheers
Back into this game now. New class introduced. Giant mech riding Daeva. Interesting class
New content update to Aion (4.7) comes out this Wednesday.
The OCAU legion is dead as most players moved over to GW2 when it came out. Those of us left on Siel moved over to a new legion called <Aussie Alliance> and play most week nights.
Thanks for reminding me, I need to log in to pay the rent on my house
This is really important, and you should do it even if you are not quite sure you are going to play Aion again, just in case.
/EDIT You don't have to install/run the game to do this if you have removed it, just go to the link above.
I played in 2010, wonder if I should
If you haven't played Aion since 2010 you should give it a go, there is a stack more content now. A lot of the early level grind is gone. They have been doing two content updates a year roughly, that is adding new maps, instances, etc. they even added 3 new character classes since 2010, and of course now there are no subscription fees, it's all free to play.
So being bored of wow and waiting for heavensward my bro and I have jumped back into aion. I have finally seen another dungeon other than haramel
I know this is probably going to get me some hate but I like that they removed the grind. Another thing that is helping me is I found a class I like. I recreated for the 3rd time and am now a songweaver and loving it
Aion 4.8 update goes live tonight.
Here is a link to the official patch notes:
Lots of changes, some 47 pages of them!
SongWeaver class looks like the one to go for, lots of improvements.
Wow these guys are pretty good when it comes to updating this game, Keeping it alive all this time.
Aion 5.0 - Echoes of Eternity
Aion 5.0 - Echoes of Eternity - came out last week.
Patch notes are here:
The level cap has been raised from 65 to 75, but it gets exponentially harder as you level, kind of like Diablo II. It will take many months to get to L75.
I think the idea is to stop people playing a dozen alt characters, and stick to developing their main toon.
Aion 6.2 has been announced for North American players which means us. It starts on October 24th. 2018.
There is still the "OCAU" legion on the KT server Elyos side, and an "Overclockers Australia" legion on the KT server Asmo side.
Aion 6.2 is a big change, we skipped over 6.0 that the Koreans got, and went straight to 6.2.
Some key differences are:
No more grind, you can get a new toon to max level 80 in a weekend if you know what you are doing.
Gear has been reset, and simplified for both PvE and PvP into 3 main types. (They got rid of all the Archdaeva crap)
Yellow = Basic
Purple = Better
Red = Best.
You buy the yellow gear with Genetic medals you earn from daily or weekly quests, and you farm enchantment stones and materials to get you gear up to +15 then upgrade it to the next gear level. ie. yellow -> purple -> red
That means no pay to win gear, you can't trade the new gear on the broker either.
There is craftable gear but it's not quite as good as the gear you can earn in game from quest rewards, but it's still pretty good.
The kinah currency and abyss point systems have been revamped, so nobody will have a great financial/points advantage upon 6.2 launch.
New map of course called "Lakram" it's similar to what Katalam was. ie. split 50/50 Elyos Asmo sides with camps to conquer and forts.
The main thing is they got rid of the grind, which has plagued Aion for over a year, causing a lot of people to leave.
People that haven't played for a couple of years can get their toons up to max level 80 quickly, and roll the newer classes they haven't tried yet.
