    At this point I wouldn’t care spending ridiculous amounts of Luna on the wardrobe system to keep buying more slots if it meant I didn’t have to permanently lose costumes since it seems that some skins will never be put on the store again since Ncsoft just simply doesn’t listen to customer demand and put costumes that people want to ACTUALLY buy. The costume rotation was supposed to happen every 2 weeks or something but I’ve seen some ugly af costumes up for a month at a time that NO ONE buys, and I have some costumes on my characters that I won’t even touch because I haven’t seen them being sold for in years so I don’t want to risk never seeing them again. It’s already such a dilemma for me seeing which costume I have to delete from Luna just so I can use another...

    ... Please quit making these vaguely promising remarks on the forums and then following it up with posts like today's. It would have been so easy to just say changes were being made to the event. (It only lasts for 2 weeks and obviously wasn't play tested or you guys would know about the boss HP and hammer drop issues but whatever.) I know what you said yesterday wasn't a lie but it still feels like such a slap in the face when EVERYONE is eager to hear about changes and updates regarding EC, 7.2/future patches, Luna retuning, housing/guestblooms, or even skins. No one cares about this event!!! It is a lame casual event with lame casual rewards! Like, okay fine. No EC news. You know what would tide everyone over in the meantime? Make the Luna wardrobe bigger, and add more skins to the BCM and in-game stores. More and more players are getting their endgame gear but no one wants to skin over it with one-time only costumes that we might never see again. I'm glad we got wintery skins and mounts on the BCM, and the cute animal hoodies from the event bosses- it is a good start. BUT IT IS NOT ENOUGH. Step. It. Up.

    Sad thing is there is a community however dwindled it may be that are openly willing to find this game even in the crap state it is in. I'm past dreaming of a better day for this game my gameplay lately has been on the forums watching the snowball gather size and speed as it rolls down hill

    People might spend more and they'd make more money if NCsoft did what they said they'd do when 6.0 dropped. When the servers returned, we got to see a brand new and butchered black cloud market. Only a fraction of what was originally on it was still there. A lot of people were posting about it and the official response we got here on these very forums was that the thew BCM would be like this for a little while until they migrated everything over (like all the costumes, furniture, other cosmetics, etc.) This turned out to be a lie. NCSoft decided to try to create artificial scarcity (and thus demand /buying incentive) by using the same "rotation" strategy for their cosmetics that other more popular MMOs do. They only put a few items on it at a time and leave them there for months. The other problem is that they keep putting up things no one wanted before and still don't want now. They're also trying to sell things that used to be available in game for kinah or arena insignias. They have to be actively trying to kill this game. I absolutely cannot think of any other explanation for why NA Aion is being mismanaged so badly. Even ****ing Gameforge is doing better at this point and that's crazy to think about.

    Well, I can kind of imagine Cyan's thought process. Cyan hangs up his stocking, puts milk and cookies out for Rudolph, and gets ready for bed on Christmas Eve. Then he remembers Aion (my apologies if Cyan is not a he) and how he hasn't logged in and written the mail for tomorrow morning, but he thinks about the ungrateful complainers on the forum and says to himself "nah, it'd spoil the spirit of Christmas, so I'm going to bed."

    Who even cares if it got fixed? Only one week left in this event anyway. So oh good, 5 extra hammers to get 2 whole stellium! We need 7.2 info. At LEAST a proposed date. Danaria server is in such a sad state. It's hard to form groups because people are bored and/or just don't care about the game because they think NCsoft doesn't care.

    In conclusion, the skill ceiling required to master a sorc is much higher than other classes. Most players would prefer instant gratification than persevering with a class that requires fast reflexes, reaction and skill. Sm, on the other hand is a broken af class designed to cater for the mentally disadvantaged people. Fact is no one likes SMs.

    @Aieryn-DN I have all but quit Aion...I let my Prestige run out and I hardly log anymore. I dropped I think a few hundredish on the snowball event. I was not elated with the results nor horribly disappointed but the game's support is just depressing. I don't know any MMORPG I have played recently with such horrendous support. I am not pointed a finger at anyone or Witch hunting but as a whole for it to take not weeks but months to implement fixes in a MMORPG is unheard of. The lack of relevant updates and details on pertinent game statuses if disheartening. I have played since the game was released and road the wave from when we got monthly subscription rewards that gave little thank yous to those supporting the game. So many hopes that got crushed. Will I quit entirely...probably never. I won't lie and say something that absolute. I just will truly free to play until I get something if anything that I find worth the money again.

    Nobody with actual decision making power at NCsoft gives a flying nyerk about Aion, especially in NA, and it's quite sad.

    Hey @Aieryn-DN I hope your move smooths out and you and your daughter start the new year out on a good foot in your new place in Illinois. I have sorta half given up on reasonable timelines or updates. I guess just wing it and try to find somethings to help you hold on lol. I have personally began playing WoW and looking into other alternatives. Sad but I am almost ready to retire from this game. Almost

    That would be true if the shield could withstand more than two attacks, something that is not so, the shield does not last the 5 seconds described because the melee classes with two skills take it away. And it still only effective again phisical attacks, not magical attacks.

    Except you should never use Stellium to buy Etium, you should keep it for legendary and ultimate tickets, but those have a weekly limitation unless you join a big legion; then you will get extra with daily reset if they capture the proper altars (sometimes multiple if it's a really big and active legion, but in that case usually they will also require you to log in regularly (can't be offline for more than a few days without getting kicked, for example) and/or to join legion activities (raid bosses and altar siege) as often as possible). But more than all of that, to get some progress on your pvp gear you will need to do most if not all of your daily pvpve instance cooldowns and your weekly genesis camps quests. Extra stuff like the 3 Demaha Altar Operation weeklies and the Stellin Problem-Solver quests won't make a difference if you're not doing your pvp instances, your weekly genesis camps and if your legion (or lack thereof) can't capture most or all altars over the course of a week so you can do the altar legion weekly quests (to get Stellium to buy leg/ult tickets to convert shitty ancient enchantment stones to leg/ult ones to enchant your gear). Oh and then if you want to play free-to-play, better block out hours of your weekly schedule ahead because you will be doing a lot of pve for kinah (to buy the lowkey overpriced prestige badge) and afking a lot of Luna dailies/weeklies on the 12 alts of your main's account (apart from doing them on your main of course, for XP to convert to Bobonerk Gems and Luna mats to convert into useful things like legendary enchantment stones) for Luna Coins to use for extra runs so you can actually gear up in a timely manner. You will also need alts on different accounts if you want to profit heavily from events, but imho it's a lot less important/urgent than the aforementioned things considering how long it takes to level a full account's worth of alts to 76. And that's all without mentioning your transformation which, without events, is going to be a pain- and it's going to be a pain for a long time. However, once you are a tad geared and have found your footing amidst the dailies and weeklies... it's kinda fun and really not as demanding as it looks. If it wasn't so darn confusing and quite literally asking for you to spend to start out as a new/returning player... there'd be a lot more still playing.

    Retunes are random. You could go higher or lower. No, it has no influence, so it doesn't matter if yours was already +2.

    I'm telling you, give it a try and see you can do more than the base number of entries + prestige extra entry + 10 luna resets. No one tries it because it is that much luna. But I've tried it.

    In the January Store Update, there's a new (overpriced) manastone supp box that guarantees success However, if you go to socket manastones on our server, NA there is no option for a supplement But every other region being at 7.2 does have an option for it Just thinking.. but, @Cyan?

    Can we talk about the January store update for like 30s The Raid Survival Package is a joke but let's move on to actually relevant things; A bunch of people suggested winter-themed skins that they were willing to spend on, meanwhile you conclude that it's better to put skins that have trouble selling over 50M on brokers (that means they're not wanted btw), literally what in the nyerk The dungeon entry scroll bundle ? We can get it in-game for 80luna = 80ncoin. Just... why ? Honestly with the rest of the lineup, I'm surprised you successfully found the Flawless Manastone Supplement Selection Box in the database, don't forget to actually ninja patch it into the game before January 29th yeah ?

    Yea PCs will always be better but that is kind of the reason why Aion is in such a sad state. Even mobile games are 100% out performing Aion in terms of being an MMORPG. They stopped getting as much money because they ruined Aion themselves and took 0 responsibility for it and tried to shaft the players. If you look at every other game out their including random 20 year old games like Age of empires 2 to name 1 and a recent release of archage unleashed to name another the developers took responsibility and worked on fixing broken mechanics with-in the game. Ncsoft's idea of fixing the game was to take feedback from the players and figure out how can they make people spend more on their game and have those spending players defend/justify playing Aion. To their credit they did it great. Spending players were defending for a while till they ran out of things to spend on for the most part.

    Les devs sont incroyablement paresseux et limite incompétents dans la plupart des choses qu'ils entreprennent. Ils ont donc décidé que de nous donner un patch majeur juste avec les vacances des fêtes, alors qu'il y aurait probablement des tonnes de bugs (parce qu'ils s'entêtent à changer des parties pour NA que les autres regions n'ont pas, introduisant des bugs extraordinaires qui prennent des mini-patch spécifiquement conçus pour NA pour fixer, et donc plus longtemps avant qu'ils ne soient fixés), serait une erreur; du coup on aura probablement la prochaine MÀJ en Janvier ou même Février, alors que EU se prépare pour 7.3 ou peut-être même 7.5 d'ici quelques mois. Ironique, considérant que NA était toujours celui qui reçevait les patchs avant EU jusqu'à il y a quelques années. Bref, le jeu est encore vivant (environ 1200 personnes connectées dans les heures les plus actives), mais personne ne sait pendant combien de temps encore. À ce stade le vrai problème est que le jeu originel en Corée a aussi eu une chute en joueurs et popularité (ils ont moins de joueurs que la version EU), il est donc possible qu'il fermera avant la version NA et, sans patchs à appliquer, les autres régions ne feront pas long feu (aucune région ne développe entièrement ses patchs, ils se basent tous sur les patchs de la Corée).

    ......Happy Holidays to you all. I know we give you all crap all the time but at the end of the day you all are human to and not customer service robots. We will never be 100% pleased 100% of the time so I'd rather close my year wishing you all and your family well. Rest up lil ones because next year we go back to being ENEMIES!!! <3

    I'm okay with all of those changes! Obviously, the only "nerf" was WoI, and that's not really a big deal imo. I'm only in Inspiration spec when I'm alone as most of my close friends I run with are physical classes (so I'm in Instigation spec).

    1. Yes, there are things your old toon will have that you can no longer get. So I would keep it. That said, any gear it has is absolutely useless. Keep it for skins if you want, but you will need new gear. 2. I'd say KT is slightly more populated than DN now, but probably not by much. KT is Elyos dominated; DN is about even, but maybe slightly Asmo dominated. 3. To catch up to top players? Several months -- and that's if you're really dedicated. If you haven't played since 5.x, you are very far behind as we are currently in 7.0. P2w does help, but you will still need to grind out instances (both pve and pvp). 4. Endgame instances are all 6-man except one which is 18-man. Not many people do the 18-man one though as its rewards are a bit outdated. Those who do it only do so for the Prestige weekly quest which gives 2 ultimate enchantment stones. Two of the endgame instances can be soloed/duoed/trioed, depending on group gear/set-up. Another can be trioed or 4/5-manned. It just depends on how geared everyone is. 5. Aion is not very well-supported by NCsoft anymore. Those of us who still play do so because we like the game, have friends we want to hang out with, etc. We can tolerate its problems because of the joy we still find in it. You will have to make that decision for yourself. Give it 1-2 weeks of playing, and by then, you should be able to tell if it's still worth playing for you. Good luck.

    You can get the Ceramium Coin skin hat and weapon from Kromede's Trial on your level 80 toon. HOW TO GET: Enter the instance Kromede's Trial on your level 80 toon. (Do not need to be in a group.) Kromede's Trial is located in Beluslan/Heiron. As you progress throughout the instance, different dark blue quests will pop up automatically. Complete each of them as some of them are pre-requisites for other quests. The two quests you'll need are Level 25 [Instance Dungeon] Sleep Well for the hat and Level 27 [Instance Dungeon] To the Nightmare for the weapon.

    Everyone runs at max speed, attacks with max attack speed and casts with max casting speed. I would argue chanters to complain their wow and their daevanion roaring judgement are obsolete, but there we have a sin complaining he is maxed like everyone else. Slows are kinda obsolete too because most people already have extra % speed that negated the slow and it doesn't really do the effect like before.

    On your "weird Asmodian base flying up in space there. I found no way of getting there": You can get there by jumping from the lighthouse. You can only enter by going around to the right and entering between the flags, otherwise there's a barrier to movement and you end up falling. The NPC up there is Kandu and he says "did you come here from the Pandora Labor Agency? I hope you receive fair compensation for your efforts" To which all you can do is say "I could always use more." There is nothing in aioncodex or Google on this, but Pandora Labor Agency is new. Anybody know where to get the quest?

    Hello everyone, We wanted to give an update on the issues regarding Evergale Canyon. We have disabled this instance for the time being until we can work out the issue with the development team. We are also investigating to determine the full extent of the exploit's impact, and will be following up appropriately. Thank you to the players who have reported this, and to those who made efforts to avoid abuse of the exploit.

    I agree with you, but I feel like this is part of a changing game atmosphere. MMORPG used to stand for 'massive, multiple online role playing game'. It meant that the game had: PvP content (dueling, arenas, ow pvp, sieges) PvE content (killing mobs, endgame raids) RPG content (character customisation, questing, story) Lifeskill content (gathering, crafting, trading) Social content (grouping up, forming community) and so much more... Catering to many different kind of players is what made an mmorpg truly 'massive'. (Even if the PvP for example isn't done as well as in a pure PvP game, people still feel attracted to the large scale of it). Sadly, once an mmorpg gets population problems, a lot of its content gets irrelevant, or hard to do (since no people around to do it with). The solution in modern mmorpgs is to just tone everything down, and make it more 'easy & straight forward'. For Aion, that meant a huge loss in content and the game being minimalised from what we experienced before. Not thinking of it as a true mmorpg helps, because basically we now have: a singleplayer campaign / tutorial from lvl 1-75 (or 80) a gear based endgame with a couple PvE instances leading to (currently) 1 true endgame raid a toned down PvP experience which still takes the focus at endgame (with the reasoning: pvp is eternal content, as long as people hack in on each other there be stuff to do). The other stuff is so watered down it's more supporting the content than being content atm (for example crafting). I truly hope we can see Aion go back to being a grand mmorpg, or for the next Aion game to be - but I have little hope. The demand for true mmorpgs is simply nothing compared to the mobile gambling market, the Battle Royale style games and the Mobas currently ^^
