    Hello everyone! As the title implies it's my time to take a bow and say farewell to you all as tomorrow is my last day with NCSOFT. I'm not one for being super sentimental but I just wanted to say that my time over the last several years has been a large learning experience for me as this was my first gig in the industry. Sometimes it was overwhelming, other times it was stressful, and of course it was fun. All of you reading this have varying opinions, experiences, and thoughts about many different things. I leave you in the good hands of Hime and the other members at NCSOFT. I encourage you all to continue sharing your feedback with the team here at NCSOFT West, constructively of course. Thank you for being along for my ride and I am sure I will see many of you again. Cheers, Cyan/Justin

    Based on player feedback regarding the siege schedule change: What works best for you? Would you like it earlier? Later? If choosing "Other" please list what time works best for you. I will keep this poll open for two weeks, and I will send the results to our teams. Ultimately we want you guys to have Sieges available at the best possible time.

    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.

    To Cyan, Gideon and Hime I’d like to explain the current situation of Aion in comparison to previous Aion updates and will predominantly use 5.8 as it was the most recent and had the best events, please do remember these virtual items cost you nothing to implement and make the playerbase happy, most of the items I will mention in the reward list below are NOT OBTAINABLE via in game means besides events. Aion is one of those games where having fun events that are generously rewarding is the reason the game is enjoyable to the vast majority, and completing other content is just something else to do along with PvP instances. Towards the end of 5.8 with the end of the world event and Smoldering fire temple were the best events that I can remember recently, you guys had even stated the rewards would be more generous than previous events, I’m sure you can be aware how much people farmed to get rewarded with items going into the next update and the positive feedback following it, however after 6.2 the events declined to be next to meaningless, and in roughly 2 weeks you could maybe get 1-2 enchantment stones and the “rubbish items” were meant to be useful during 5.8, not now as opposed to the end of the world event where you could use ALT characters to spam the event and receive maybe 100 tempering solutions a week, which back then was enough to enchant all 7 accessories to +8 or 9 if you’re lucky, which was considered above average gear for the time. Now during 6.7, I have enchanted every item to Ultimate +15 and it took me 500 legendary PvP enchantment stones and 100 ultimate, which takes an extreme amount of time, money and effort to do without events and is almost on the point of impossible for some, The next events should resemble what we had during the end of the world event, its about that time where we will get 7.0 soon and everyone should be able to catch up on gear going into the next ‘gear reset’ (keep in mind I myself have reached the gear cap and am still asking for others to be able to catchup) I will suggest events and rewards and why they are so needed and impossible to get in game. The 4 major items NEEDED in LARGE quantities are; Abyss points, Ancient, Legendary and Ultimate PvP enchantment stones, Spirit fragments and Manastones. - Abyss points are easy for one reason; they can be farmed in game in a reasonable time frame with the help of ap boost events such as the one we just had (200% ap boost). - Ancient, Legendary and Ultimate PvP stones are not nearly as accessible as Omega enchantment stones and Tempering solutions were in 5.8 events, and many more of them are needed (e.g. 500 Legendary, 100 Ultimate for 17 items +5-15) - Spirit fragments; This item is right now one of the biggest problems, in order to make 1000 of these at the current broker price of 50,000 kinah per ‘Ancient Guiding Stone’ it will cost 950million kinah, which is not very easily obtained following the release of 6.2 if at all. To upgrade 17 items from legendary grade to ultimate grade it costs 4500 spirit fragments. - Manastones were a very common item in 5.8 with SELECTABLE +12 manastone bundles and currently the only way to get those were to have them saved from the 5.8 update and you need roughly 100 Manastones to complete an entire set of 17 items. The following events should not continue to be like what we have now, where you open a box at the end of the instance, giving you currency to buy a singular item at an npc. Events should return to be like Daeva Dash or Smoldering Fire temple which were community favorite events based on the fact you can loot a box at the end of the instance which would give you USEFUL ITEMS for finishing it, rather than nothing until you complete the instance for example; 6 times for enough tokens to buy X. The main problem is all of these items I will list are needed in large quantities and the easiest way is events. (please keep in mind all of these items are virtual and don’t cost you anything to make the players happy) Minor/rubbish rewards: - Spirit fragment x 25 - Spirit fragment x 50 - Selectable level 80 Manastone Bundle - Ancient Guiding stone x 100 - Ancient kibrium x 100 Mid-tier rewards: - Spirit Fragment x100 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x 5 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x 10 - Ultimate PvP enchantment stone x 3 - Ancient Guiding stone x 250 - Ancient Kibrium x 250 - Event Skin (?) - Legendary Manastone bundle (selectable) - Ultimate Manastone bundle (selectable) Greater rewards: - Spirit Fragment x 300 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x15 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x20 - Ultimate PvP enchantment stone x 5 - Ultimate Anomos Weapon Box (selectable) same as we had provenance weapon box - Ancient Guiding stone x 1000 - Ancient Kibrium x 100 - Ultimate Manastone bundle x 3 - Legendary Manastone bundle x 3

    @Cyan if sales are tanking because everyone is making free luna then you should start listing things on the BCM that people want to buy like highly requested skins that are from 4.0 that NA never even got (where's the flower mount??). The transparent transformation scrolls still require a steep price reduction to be a justifiable purchase for the average player, if you can manage that then you'll have more people investing in the few skins that NA have re-added to the BCM since wiping it with the 6.2 patch. If you look at KR, EU, RU servers ALL OTHER VERSIONS OF AION HAVE AN ABUNDANCE OF EASILY ACCESSIBLE TRANSPARENT SCROLLS. Oh and uh UPDATE THE PRESTIGE VENDING MACHINE TO MAKE PRESTIGE WORTH PAYING FOR The items in the machine, besides the 1 title card and overpriced cosmetics, are completely out of touch and irrelevant. Instead of offering single transform scrolls for a RIDICULOUS 500 Prestige Coin here are three things that are actually relevant in the game: Fighting Spirit Fragments (and no I don't mean 500 Prestige Coin for 1x Fighting Fragment, I mean reasonably priced). Specific A-Grade Minion Contracts (like the ones from the Lockbox vending machine). - These would be (rightfully) more expensive. Stigma Enchantment Stones. Additionally, lower the Prestige Coin costs to reflect the current patch. If you ARE going to commit to removing the free random luna material box then make the one in prestige cost 50 or less coins instead of 500. The transformation contract bundle should be, like, 10 prestige coins given how widely available for free it is. There is zero consistency with the pricing / availability of items in this game. Give people a reason to pay for this game, please.

    Ok my last post was deleted because there were some "unsavory" things said but the truth needs be out there - now I know our NA Team can't do nothing because let's face it, we do not have a true NA team for Aion that can make anything or get anything going for the community. In short if its not happening in korea its not happening here....but either way here goes again. The nice way. @Cyan Last week there was a conversation about events during the covid-19 crisis. Many people are on lockdown forced to stay inside their homes and find ways to entertain themselves during this time. AFK Events & Purchase Event's give no reason to "actively enjoy and P L A Y the game." (Emphasis on the verb *play) While the "world" is going into a financial crisis again, this time with people trying to avoid getting sick, spreading disease, losing their jobs, and trying to cope with this disaster. NCSoft has once again failed to take note amongst its base as a developer of entertainment. Performing Immoral tactics as to blindly syphon off their community's emergency funds. The majority of games that I am currently playing have developers enacting events in this time of need in order to keep their respective communities hopes up that, during this crisis as a whole, we will get through this. They are producing content rapidly in regards to their COVID-19 responses to keep players "actively" engaged within their worlds. Meanwhile, our situation as a community and around the world has once again gone ignored by NCSoft. During this time it would be sound to suggest to my community to take caution. The world is going through a financial disaster and countless jobs are being affected. While some have yet to feel the reverberation of the disease, take worry because it is a chain reaction and it will spread. It is one thing to support your game developer's for doing a good job and there would be reasons to spend money on entertainment during these times of need. Mental health just so happens to be a valid reason as well and entertainment can sustain that for us. But as it stands, NCSoft is doing no such thing worthy of being supported at this juncture. Referring back to my initial paragraph - if its not happening in Korea it's not going to be happening here. I believe it's safe to say NCSoft will not be on our side during this depressing stage. They've repeatedly expressed a goal deceptively snagging players funds in the past. Today, that goal remains paramount, as the company is during this time releasing an event (or lack thereof) in form of purchases. Those of you familiar with the rewards in purchasing understand the magnitude of the release of this event. But why release it during a time of financial crisis? Why not postpone it? Is this not a time that would make a transaction such as this "immoral." Personally, I've seen and understood the tactics implemented time and again from NCSoft. I avoid it as much as I can because If I support it in this form, it'll never change nor will it ever get better, and NCSoft will never truly consider "me, the player which is also "you." The outside world may not understand what's going on here but we do. We understand the magnitude of releasing an event such as this in our world and normally we would all try to jump in and get a piece. But many of us are caught up in the corona disaster that has taken our jobs, restricted us to being at home, and desperate to remain hopeful that we will make it through. If I was to bring it to terms of the outside it would be relatable to someone purchasing all the hand sanitizer and price gouging everyone else back. That's what NCSoft is doing right now in this moment. Instead of building faith and focusing on its player base by helping them get through this moment in time. They are instead choosing to purposely hunting down every form of available coin with little effort given to keep it form themselves. This event tomorrow, in the sense of creating the actions it takes to complete from purchasing, selecting, and using the item is only a matter of minutes. By paying the software developer to create a purchase button (20 minutes) , to create an in game item (5 minutes), paying an artist to design an ad to post online (4 hours), a translator to translate ( and by translate the name of the item and the purchase in the store that's really not a lot so lets say 5 minutes,) and these people get paid lets say $30/hr (being generous.) Total time spent to get this up and running for NCSoft was literally chump change that any one of us could have paid for! 4 hours and 30 minutes times $30 per person involved dollars (being generous here again on purpose.) NCSoft spent literally spent less than $600 to get this going for the sole purpose of syphoning off hundreds of thousands if not millions from its community during a disaster period. Now if the outside world understood that do you really think this strategy of NCSoft would be ok during this time? That's a serious thing to consider and it says a great deal about the future of this company when considering playin a new title. Their morality, reliability, and ideals become painfully and seriously clear. The intent here is malicious. More than me making this post, my previous post that got deleted, or the several others who began attacking NCSoft on the forums recently. There's nothing I can say or do that will cause NCSoft to act. I just felt the need to get it out there and let these people know there's better. There are companies out there that will watch out for you, take care of you, and work for you. NCSoft has stopped "working" for me a long time ago....I wont quit yet, I do thoroughly enjoy the game (not all of it though) the sad thing is this game was huge and had great potential but it was NCSoft's own greed that ran it down into the ground. Some of what's great still exists and calls to me... So I have questions that I ask myself..... Is it worth it for me to financially support this company in a serious form? More importantly is it "WORTH" it for me to "ATTEMPT" to financially support NCSoft when the world is in a financial crisis? Is this going to be a "sound" investment for me to allow myself to put into NCSoft? Will NCSoft be there for me when I need its entertainment the most? Did the investment pay off? Will remember NCSoft the next time its name is placed on a new title? For now I see no reason to invest in NCSoft even with something so small as prestige...I need to be ready where ever this crisis takes me. @Cyan this is who you work for - this is how you make your living - off our backs. The players. We give NCSoft our support - you work for NCSoft because of us - the players. Can you really sit there and tell us there ain't a damn thing you can fight for? Is there nothing you can get done for us? Can you truly call yourself a "community manager?" Because right now there's a lot of hopelessness and doubt in the community for the entertainment (or lack thereof) we receive and we need someone whos going to manage to keep us afloat. Only the community can punish, educate, and teach NCSoft. I hope someday NCSoft learns that there more money to be made investing in its players then solely expecting its players to invest on them.

    Hello, As of this afternoon, we have suspended and permanently closed accounts who were found to have participated in abusing the Evergale Canyon exploit. We have extensively reviewed each account and their actions; the accounts that were suspended or closed knowingly participated in the exploit. As such, our decisions here are final and we will make no exceptions. Evergale Canyon remains unavailable as we work with the dev team to address its issues and will bring it back as soon as we can. Thank you!

    There is a nice thread here on the forums about farming skins in 6.0, but much of the info is outdated since it’s from 6.0. I’ve been doing a lot of skin farming lately, so here is a bunch of info about current old skins available. I am only listing the skins that are farmable for level 80 toons. There are other skins inside some of these instances, but they cannot be passed to a level 80 toon because they are inside of ancient/legendary gear boxes. For example, the final boss in Esoterrace drops a box of legendary gear which is the Abyssal skin; it can only be looted by the toon which killed the boss. If you bring in a level 80 toon, it can loot everything else on the boss, just not the equipment box. Rentus Base also drops the old Vasharti gear and weapon skins, but again, they are in a box and are not passable to level 80 toons. How to create a proper group that will allow a level 80 toon to loot the skins: Your “skin farming” toon will be within 10 levels of whichever instance you are farming. For example, if you are farming in an instance where the mobs are level 27, your toon will need to be no higher than level 36. You will need two toons in the group: a level 1 on a separate account and a level 37/45/whatever on your main account. Your level 1 toon should be in the group the entire time, regardless of how much switching you do for other toons to loot. Your level 1 toon can just sit at Ishalgen or wherever. Bring your level 37 (or whatever) toon inside the instance by itself (while in group with the level 1) and kill mobs/beat the instance. Note: If white skins drop on the regular mobs, go to character screen with your level 37 toon -- DO NOT LEAVE GROUP -- and switch to your level 80 toon. The *regular* mob loot despawns within 5 minutes, so you must be very fast on those. Loot it on your level 80 toon and then go back to character screen and switch back to your level 37 toon. Continue the instance. After you kill the final boss in the instance, you will probably have a 15-minute wait period (see notes for each instance below for exceptions) before you can loot on another toon. So kill the boss and then go to character screen -- again, DO NOT LEAVE GROUP -- and switch to your level 80 toon. Bring it inside the instance (the level 1 should still be chilling in group with you) and wait by the boss until it becomes lootable. As a general rule, your level 1 toon should always be in the group from start to finish. Do not ever make it leave or you risk the group falling apart and you being kicked from the instance before you're done looting. ** When you enter lower level instances, such as Haramel or Lower Udas Temple, select “Enter with my squad” or some such phrasing; don’t enter the instance in the solo mode. ** Frostforged Gear Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Wind or Earth Where to get: Haramel, Alquimia Research Center, Kromede’s Trial Level your farming toon needs to be: 6-32 Type of loot: White gear pieces How to get: They are found on both regular mobs and Hamerun, the final boss; see notes at the top of this post on how to loot. Special notes: The mini-boss mob that prowls around outside of the Haramel entrance also drops one piece of this gear, and it is also passable to level 80 toons in the same way, so make sure to kill him before you actually enter the instance. The drop rate is much lower in Alquimia, so I recommend just keeping your toon at level 9 until you’ve collected all the pieces you need from Haramel before ascending to level 10. Malefic Gear and Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Starspark Where to get: Fire Temple, Bakarma Fortress, Taloc’s Hollow, Esoterrace Level your farming toon needs to be: 31-51 Type of loot: White gear pieces How to get: They are found on both regular mobs and bosses; see notes at the top of this post on how to loot. Special notes: FT drops a different, non-Malefic shield, which is called Starspark like the other Malefic gear, but it’s not the Malefic shield. I’m not sure what it is, so I included a picture of it. FT also has a chance to spawn Vile Judge Kromede as the final boss and she drops the old Kromede weapon skins, but several of them are the extendable versions, so they cannot be skinned onto level 80 weapons. FT is the best/fastest/easiest way to farm these Malefic skin pieces. Infinity Shard/Hyperion Gear Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Heartwave or Aegis Where to get: Lower Udas Temple, Rentus Base, Beshmundir Temple, Dragon Lord’s Refuge, Tiamat Stronghold Level your farming toon needs to be: 49-80 (recommend waiting until 52 for Udas Temple because Besh at level 49 is almost impossible) Type of loot: White gear pieces How to get: They are found on both regular mobs and bosses; see notes at the top of this post on how to loot. Special notes: The cloth version is the special songweaver version; does not have the sorc/sm version of cloth. There are both leather versions – regular and special gunner. All pieces are available, including the hats. The mace and shield can also be found. It’s possible the other weapons are around, but I haven’t seen them in about a dozen runs. In Dragon Lord’s Refuge, the skin is on Calindi, not the final chest. (There is technically also one in the chest, but it's not passable to other toons.) Calindi’s loot timer is 15 minutes, so you can finish the instance before you bring in your level 80 toon. Lower Udas Temple is the best/easiest/fastest way to farm these skins. Tiamat Stronghold Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Ancient Drakanfire Where to get: Tiamat Stronghold Level your farming toon needs to be: 71-80 Type of loot: Ancient weapon box How to get: It is found on the boss, Tahabata. They are not passable between characters as they are inside boxes, but you can just run the instances on your level 80 toons since Tahabata is a level 71 mob! Special notes: These DO have the red glow on them! You must actually bring a 2nd toon inside the instance with you. Just holding the group is not enough. For some reason, the weapon box only drops from Tahabata when at least two toons are inside the boss room. Unfortunately, since they are inside weapon boxes, you will get the "best" one for your class. For example, as a chanter, I am given a box with a staff; I don't get to choose a mace or shield instead. Fallen Poeta/Kroban Gear and Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Helio’s Where to get: Open world Lakrum/Demaha, Bastion of Souls, Primeth’s Forge, Stellin Laboratories Level your farming toon needs to be: No level restriction as long as you are strong enough to kill the mobs Type of loot: White gear pieces How to get: They are found on regular mobs; see notes at the top of this post on how to loot. Special notes: They were called Volcanic in 6.x patches. No image of all the weapons together; google "Aion Kroban weapons" for images of them individually from Aion Powerbook. Blood Mark Gear and Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Lakrum Protector Where to get: Yellow/dark blue quests when you first enter the Lakrum map Level your farming toon needs to be: 76-80 Type of loot: Ancient gear How to get: Quest rewards Special notes: The white version shown above is the Lakrum Protector pve gear; the gray version (not pictured here) is the pvp gear. Harvester Gear and Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Ancient Nighthaze Where to get: Bastion of Souls, Frozen Monolith Level your farming toon needs to be: 76-80 Type of loot: Ancient gear How to get: They are found on the bosses. They are not passable between characters as they are inside boxes, but you can just run the instances on your level 80 toons. Special notes: None OTHER SKINS YOU GET WHILE LEVELING, BUT NOT PASSABLE TO LEVEL 80 TOONS: - Level 1 starter gear – “Old” – original starter skin - Level 1-9 gear – “Apprentice” – Fabled Kahrun skin – Looks like: https://66.media.tumblr.com/148477c525121e325526c504aa2dfdf3/tumblr_pevjsom1Dg1rjzgqyo2_250.png - Level 10 gear – “Traveler” – Siel’s Forgotten skin – Looks like: https://www.daevasreport.com/images/multimedia/screenshots/3-0_screenshots_armors03.jpg - Level 10 wings (yellow quest) – “Verdict” – Norsvold starter wings (assume Elyos get their Iluma version, but not sure) – Looks like: https://aionpowerbook.com/preview/wings/wing_q04a_1.jpg - Level 10-20 gear – “Verdict” – Ceramium coin skin (white) – Looks different for Elyos and Asmos - Level 20 purple weapons – “Dundis” – same as Verdict - Level 20-40 Gear – “Adjudication” – Ceramium coin skin (purple) – Looks different for Elyos and Asmos - Level 40-55 gear – “Indomitable” – Eternal Kahrun skin – Looks like: http://cmsstatic.aionfreetoplay.com/armor3.jpg - Level 50 purple weapons – “Lakeanimum” – unknown blue/black (similar to Beritra skin, but not quite the same) - Level 50-74 Gear and weapons – “Sunburst” – Danuar Sanctuary skin – Looks like: https://www.daevasreport.com/2013/05/07/aion-4-0-danuar-shalter-gear/ - Level 60 purple weapons – “Roaring Kirrin” – Hyperion skin – Looks like: https://live.staticflickr.com/8690/16989487461_a678e15206_b.jpg

    Hello everyone. We're still having issues with out survey tool and will be sending out the surveys as soon as we can. Additionally, we will be distributing an additional Apocalyptic Ice Gem Chest for every run you did prior to us updating the event. This means if you ran Mirash Sanctum and Cradle of Eternity 2 times each, you'll be getting 4 boxes. Thank you!

    So we ask you guys for an event that we can actually do while people are stuck at home, not being able to work, some ppl losing their job, not able to go outside and you tell us we get one, right? CANT EVEN PARTICIPATE W.O SPENDING MONEY! Like you know there are people who are not making any money atm, jobs closing and shutting down and you pull this stunt to try to get the rest of our money. So while ppl who usually do spend money on this game cant even spare any because of this situation, you are gonna make this event p2w only to those who still have their jobs or those who can still work rn which is only a small few. But no its fine because we get the snake event that has the same rewards like last patch... Honestly disappointed and disgusted by NCWest even thinking this was a good event.

    Making <Grade A Minium> Tradeble in account warehouse would be 1 of the best changes that could be done this patch Also Crimson Katalam ( Red katalam ) you can only get (180 mins from hourglass) wasn't it like 360 for every right region? I could be wrong idk

    Agreed. The fact that the administration still hasn't punished those that abused the EC bug is outrageous and just another example of the poor administration of this game. Oh.. wait.. (The irony of a serial abuser complaining about the pay2winners is precious.)

    Hello, We're investigating this with the development team and I don't have a comprehensive answer for you all right now. I will tell you that regardless of what happens, the Luna will not be removed so don't worry about that. We should have an update for you all shortly. Thank you.

    I actually like the update for the most part. Allow us to trade non-brokerable enchantment stones and Manastones through account warehouse. Actually give us the item that allows to make ancient and legendary contracts for the Lugbug quests. Give us Leibo’s blessing Item to complete one Of the Lugbug weeklies, currently missing from Gold Sand Traders. Fix evergale, and give compensation to those for missed entries to those who didn’t abuse it. Give us a permanent +9 and +12 safe spot for stigmas. Make the Altar fortress siege battle (the one where the guy spawns at altar 10) more rewarding, some etium is just meh. Fix Lugbug issues for the people who transferred. Bring back enchantment stone drops and number of items dropped in IDD/PF, or raise the weekly quests to how be completed how many times we can enter the instance per week. Match number of entries with Prestige as other regions (4 for IDD, the Manor ones). Give us guaranteed red drop in the instances that have it guaranteed in other regions (IDD, PF, etc). Lower amount gems needed to morph a stone to 5 for legendary and 25 for ultimate, and make it 5 ancient stones to morph into a legendary, instead of 10. Remove the cap on enchantment stones boxes from Genesis Crystal NPCs.

    Seriously the sense of entitlement of this community continues to amaze me to this day. You literally just have to log in and sit afk for 6 hours for 20 days, don't have to do a thing in game and you get rewarded with something free. You know the exact same thing many people complained about in ec people afking getting rewarded so we need the kick back? You can't do it on every toon oh well you still get something free for doing ZERO. So not rewarding multiple toons on an account for doing nothing but afking works for me. I mean the only thing should complain about in this event is the fact that we were not told this at the start of it. I get it makes little sense to have the event be character based but the bcm item is account based but seriously the fact people still think this company wasn't going to do something like that is surprising. Anyways my 2 cents if you don't like it don't login it really is that simple. You can still get free enchants( 7 days or Not) and frags so not a total loss. Don't get free stuff people complain, they give you something free for doing nothing people complain. Just like in Real Life if something sounds to good to be true it probably is. If you are that naive I know a warlord who has 2 million dollars to give you just send me your banking info so I can send it to you. :-)

    The 3 atreian transformation essences are literally garbage. The amount of luna you would waste for them is too much to even bother. And yes having to type "confirm" to throw that garbage away is irritating.

    That's pretty much going to be majority of people. They didn't ban people for the tia event when people bought the items and got quickly geared. They didn't ban everyone for the luna daily craft bug either back in the day (just some people). And yet they still don't ban people who use unfair/cheating programs like you which also is against ToS. you used them in the past funny hearing this suggestion from you lol

    For people who don't have time to watch the stream at https://www.twitch.tv/videos/467646917, here are some screencaps of the things they showed of some importance. Not pictured, but noted: - Transformations will remain account-wide; will not reduce to server-only like in other regions - No mention of transformation times being restored to 10 minutes, so probably not happening - Character slots will be expanded to 13, but only for Prestige holders (extra characters will not be deleted if you let Prestige expire) - We will receive up through the KR patch of Dec 26, 2018 New cubics screen -- 5 levels of new platinum cubes, gold and silver cubes also expanding to have 5 levels (currently have 3 and 4 respectively): New PVE instance Stellin Laboratories will have 4 entries for regular players, 5 for Prestige.

    Hello First of all, sorry for my english, not my first langueage. This thread is gonna sound as i tell you how to do your job @Cyan, but wanted to share a couple opinions about communication and timing, and how bad it is rn from the Ncwest side. There has been a series of bad communication problems going on about the patches, and the topics inside it. Mayor example was the luna craft reduction added to the removal of the free gift every day: 1) The reduction is not that bad since alot of f2p players were doing almost the same as paying players which would break the sustantibility of the server BUT the way of communicating this change was really bad: first of all you should have said that this luna craft was in testing , and developing in the first place, this would reduce the pressure from lowering the rates later. having a system added with "subject to change" its an easy way of not having negative efects later cuz of nerfs. 2) Explain to the community why are doing things, some people can deduce that reducing luna was necesary because was removing the need of buying luna at all, etc, but not all thinks the same way. 3) Removing the gift that gives "1 random material a day" , whitout any reason, it looks like you just want to annoy players removing free stuff(which was a really small free gift every day to be taken care off). 4) TIMING about this patch... you are removing/nerfing this features the same day as the EU servers gets a mayor update, also not showing any indication of if we are gonna get 7.0 at all( that last post about "announcements about what happens with 7.0" was rly vague, which adds up to the problem. Also having a really shitty event at the same time as EU gets a mayor patch makes people just leave the server to check new things, or another guames just because its "annoying" to play here. This was the first example i got, and which ilustrated my point, but this problem has been going on for months of patches. You are not obligated to talk to the community about the decisions, but would help a lot. Saying "we are taking feedback, and redirecting to the developers" doesnt mean you are hearing the community, it feels like an automated message at this point. Greetings Guitarra

    This. When we got the luna update, everyone was kinda shocked at our good fortune to be getting 40 luna from that craft. Players were really happy. Seriously happy. Happier than they have been about anything in a very long time. Activity on the server picked up, too. Usually by Monday there were no groups for anything. But since people could easily craft enough luna, they were running instances the whole week and not just the first few days. As Van points out, it's not like the 40 luna was a surprise to NCSoft! You guys knew the number. Suddenly you think it was too high? Which makes me wonder if you all actually -looked- at the number or did you just add it right out of the box from Korea without looking at it first? And that I can actually see that having happened is what makes me sad.

    I would add ancient and/or legendary contracts to the greater rewards list. And I want to tell @Cyan that people wouldn't spam if they were listened to.

    To Cyan, Gideon and Hime I’d like to explain the current situation of Aion in comparison to previous Aion updates and will predominantly use 5.8 as it was the most recent and had the best events, please do remember these virtual items cost you nothing to implement and make the playerbase happy, most of the items I will mention in the reward list below are NOT OBTAINABLE via in game means besides events. Aion is one of those games where having fun events that are generously rewarding is the reason the game is enjoyable to the vast majority, and completing other content is just something else to do along with PvP instances. Towards the end of 5.8 with the end of the world event and Smoldering fire temple were the best events that I can remember recently, you guys had even stated the rewards would be more generous than previous events, I’m sure you can be aware how much people farmed to get rewarded with items going into the next update and the positive feedback following it, however after 6.2 the events declined to be next to meaningless, and in roughly 2 weeks you could maybe get 1-2 enchantment stones and the “rubbish items” were meant to be useful during 5.8, not now as opposed to the end of the world event where you could use ALT characters to spam the event and receive maybe 100 tempering solutions a week, which back then was enough to enchant all 7 accessories to +8 or 9 if you’re lucky, which was considered above average gear for the time. Now during 6.7, I have enchanted every item to Ultimate +15 and it took me 500 legendary PvP enchantment stones and 100 ultimate, which takes an extreme amount of time, money and effort to do without events and is almost on the point of impossible for some, The next events should resemble what we had during the end of the world event, its about that time where we will get 7.0 soon and everyone should be able to catch up on gear going into the next ‘gear reset’ (keep in mind I myself have reached the gear cap and am still asking for others to be able to catchup) I will suggest events and rewards and why they are so needed and impossible to get in game. The 4 major items NEEDED in LARGE quantities are; Abyss points, Ancient, Legendary and Ultimate PvP enchantment stones, Spirit fragments and Manastones. - Abyss points are easy for one reason; they can be farmed in game in a reasonable time frame with the help of ap boost events such as the one we just had (200% ap boost). - Ancient, Legendary and Ultimate PvP stones are not nearly as accessible as Omega enchantment stones and Tempering solutions were in 5.8 events, and many more of them are needed (e.g. 500 Legendary, 100 Ultimate for 17 items +5-15) - Spirit fragments; This item is right now one of the biggest problems, in order to make 1000 of these at the current broker price of 50,000 kinah per ‘Ancient Guiding Stone’ it will cost 950million kinah, which is not very easily obtained following the release of 6.2 if at all. To upgrade 17 items from legendary grade to ultimate grade it costs 4500 spirit fragments. - Manastones were a very common item in 5.8 with SELECTABLE +12 manastone bundles and currently the only way to get those were to have them saved from the 5.8 update and you need roughly 100 Manastones to complete an entire set of 17 items. The following events should not continue to be like what we have now, where you open a box at the end of the instance, giving you currency to buy a singular item at an npc. Events should return to be like Daeva Dash or Smoldering Fire temple which were community favorite events based on the fact you can loot a box at the end of the instance which would give you USEFUL ITEMS for finishing it, rather than nothing until you complete the instance for example; 6 times for enough tokens to buy X. The main problem is all of these items I will list are needed in large quantities and the easiest way is events. (please keep in mind all of these items are virtual and don’t cost you anything to make the players happy) Minor/rubbish rewards: - Spirit fragment x 25 - Spirit fragment x 50 - Selectable level 80 Manastone Bundle - Ancient Guiding stone x 100 - Ancient kibrium x 100 Mid-tier rewards: - Spirit Fragment x100 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x 5 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x 10 - Ultimate PvP enchantment stone x 3 - Ancient Guiding stone x 250 - Ancient Kibrium x 250 - Event Skin (?) - Legendary Manastone bundle (selectable) - Ultimate Manastone bundle (selectable) Greater rewards: - Spirit Fragment x 300 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x15 - Legendary PvP enchantment stone x20 - Ultimate PvP enchantment stone x 5 - Ultimate Anomos Weapon Box (selectable) same as we had provenance weapon box - Ancient Guiding stone x 1000 - Ancient Kibrium x 100 - Ultimate Manastone bundle x 3 - Legendary Manastone bundle x 3

    Why weren't we even given a survey? Why is it that the schedule just changed out of nowhere? Siege time will be at 12 am on the east coast. This is supposed to be NA server, yet people in NA aren't getting reasonable times.

    Ncsoft needs to acknowledge the numerous posts complaining about the stigma rates or lack of and listen to the player base. Other regions all got the +12 safe spot naturally and permanent and not as an event. Is that the case with NA 7.5? All other regions stigma events had a rate increase from 20% to 30% or 35% for their events. We had two events and no rate increase and the players are annoyed on how difficult this is especially considering outside the storm wing event how hard it is to collect stigmas and at the same time the chance is so damn low to succeed. The rates should be changed asap to something much higher and the price on the bcm dropped drastically or add another event to get multiple stigma stones since most everyone who had a small stash saved from the last event have blown through their 100 stigmas to see little gain. Players are very annoyed and frustrated as evidenced by the number of threads and posts. Do something that doesn't impede game progress for once but helps it because if every other region can do it WHY CAN'T (WON'T) YOU?

    Thank you all for the best wishes! It's been almost 4 years since I started and time moves too quickly sometimes. At the very least let's hope I didn't set the bar too high on the weekly maintenance images. Don't forget to send any and all bugs to Loki (Actually you should probably send a ticket in and be as detailed as possible).

    With the revamp of Luna in 6.0 and generally removing every good thing housing NPC's had, even though I wanted to improve my estate (such as adding room breakers or getting special guestblooms), I simply could not because the NPC's were bugged or just got deleted. The Breezy addition to Luna was a nice change, but I still wanted something more, so I purchased this pack from the BCM The description literally says nothing about what's included, but here's a pic for those who want to know I saw that the wall ornament was 60 days... whatever it's just one of the things and the others do look nice so I didn't mind much (there's a wallpaper below that's not on the pic). Then I go to actually register the things, and I found out EVERYTHING is a timed 60 days (excluding the wallpaper, but I didn't want to use that since I like the Breezy one) I'm.. disappointed. I'm barely interested in any Aion content anymore, but housing has remained and I would love to get an explanation from this, because the pack literally has no description of what's inside, not even saying anything about the things inside being non-permanent items. What a waste of NCoin, guess I'll just log to pay the maint fee and log out immediately

    Hi guys, We've taken this pack down as well as the Proud Singles pack as well. We'll investigate and look at getting the permanent versions put up. Once we're done we'll look at everyone that has purchased these and see what we need to do. In the mean time, if you'd like to contact CS to get your BCC back please do so. Thanks.

    Thank you for saving me time and also some of my money, this is beyond silly. You'd think NC would remove the Luna recipes so they could add stuff to BCM and milk money out of us, but no, they simply removed it YET did nothing to revamp housing when it comes to new furniture available or anything. Why is it so hard to just put stuff up for sale and let those who want to spend money just do whatever they want? At least offer us something to do other than events where we have to afk 24 hours in a game that kicks you out for not moving barely 20 minutes. Only thing that I also log aion for lately is housing but that's cause I got lucky to buy some of the stuff I needed before they removed the NPCs and our already low variety on items available.. Adding time limited items is also bullshit, specially when you don't even specify it before someone buys it nor even say what the hell the packs includes, there are messages from people from years ago wanting to know what the pack has inside and no one even knew til now unless forced to buy and get scammed just like that. It feels really sad to know I've dumped more money in a game I've been playing for less than 6 months than on Aion that I was playing for 5 years, and why? Cause there's nothing worth buying, where the hell are the costumes? You always have the 5 same items available that no one cares for, or only adds them for a little time and then never again. The BCM is the biggest disappointment, you guys don't even know how to make money.

    @Cyan, I could understand this nerf for other regions because they have: -All 3 fort sieges every other day (all at the same time, so get some contri at each fort and that's 12 legendary stones per week losing every siege, more if you actually conquer the fort) -Altar sieges twice per day (double chance of getting legendary/ultimate tickets, double the stellium income to buy them) -EU has dome and dredge, both daily, 3 entries each (and working EC *cough*) Meanwhile in NA: -1 fort per day -1 altar siege daily -2 entries for dred every other day -2 entries for id every other day -Non working EC for 4+ months So if you're going to copy & paste those nerfs into our 7.2, what about you also copy paste their siege/pvp instance schedule so we're not trying to survive with less than half the amount of enchant stones every other region has?

    Is there any particular reason why the NA Transformation Contracts were adjusted so much in the first place? With the ease of getting gear from fighting fragment bottleneck getting resolved is it even necessary still for 7.2? It seems they are really unbalanced when it comes to magic casting classes like Sorc/SM and Clerics vs Melee classes whom can reach their Attack speed cap while also having the extra run speed the NA contracts provide to close the gap or escape when a quicker casted spell or 2 would've altered the fight in the caster's favor. Even if you keep the other stats nerfed as is, the casting and attack speed stats shouldn't have so much disparity. Especially since casters have a self-imposed root when a spell has any kind of cast time (and some with no cast time also roots us in place). The longer the cast time the longer we're rooted in the spot for free without any aid of a movement reduction skill from an opposing enemy. Right now with Viola (35% cast speed) + Ult Weapon Book/Orb (20% cast speed) and not counting a title and candy we're only at 55% of the 75% cap. Even with Kaisinel's 40% cast speed we're still only at 60%. With title and candy and Kaisinel you'd be lucky to bust 67%. Melee's cap on the other hand is only 50% and can exceed the cap to 60% with Kaisinel presently. Most only need Kromede to make their cap or Hamerun/Masterius +title/candy to reach their cap. Please revisit this decision for 7.2 because since 6.0 magic casting classes have had their potential damage output reduced because of increase cast times of more than 25% on average if you have Viola and an Ultimate Weapon which should be considered higher-end buffs.

    It's pretty amazing how far some people will go to avoid taking responsibility for their shitty behavior. The kick mechanic was always there. Exploiting it for etium was not. Neither were the mass auto kicks you mouthbreathers did to try to cover your tracks. Your sad entitlement essays made me laugh. It's mildly amusing watching you fumble around with ideas. Still, you dipshits wrecked progression is an already lopsided and dying game, bragged about it, got caught, and somehow still have a c*ntache after getting only a slap on the wrist. Y'all may get your characters back, but you sound pathetic. ...because you are pathetic. gfy

    everyone's complaining about you ruining shit how about 1 damn reply on that, just gonna go blind when everyone's outraged??? @Cyan nyerking trashy ass community manager. pretty much confirms that you guys are just nerfing shit to shut down the damn game. i don't give a nyerk if this gets me banned on forums, noone nyerking replys on forums from ur team anyways. atleast then ill know u nyerking read that shit , u trashy ass pepega CM .. look at any other damn mmo and nyerking see what their cm's are doing. everytime u get shit for actual shit u do u guys hide till next week only to post some more trashy nerfs. next thing you'll do is just say "keep it civil or we will ban u/ ignore u" where the nyerk is reply when we are civil u a$$holes. so much nerfs for no nyerking reason. id/ad/ec not being everyday and we having 3 times less runs than any other region idd having less cds than any other region even rankings gave useless gold ingots that noone fkin needs xforms having shitty stats xforms durations being nerfed so u have to buy more scrolls events nerfed so if you dont p2w u cant get max reward like old days example End of world event,Shugo event where if u didn't p2w u wouldn't have enough for best reward no matter how hard u tried. even on that end of world event u got our hopes up with scrolls that we were supposed to get maybe we could get those scrolls on main and get 1 damn xform but no, that got nerfed into boxes instead. then we had 1 good thing luna crafts , which got nerfed again as it reduced ur sales a bit then we had 1 good event that u could get good shit from and now this nyerking nerf so u cant get shit unless u p2w again, even damn bags inside are fkin rigged opened like 50 + alchemic bags only to get 3-4 essences on my alts. are you even getting payed?if they are holding you hostage to nerf this shit just say it. are you doing this cuz u are nyerking sadists? @Cyan@Cyan@Cyan@Cyan@Cyan@Cyan@Cyan@Cyan@Cyan@Cyan@Cyan lets not forget this are the people controlling the development of this game, they die to normal mobs.

    It's wasn't a "stupid" bug. People literally had a thousand tradeable grade a minion contracts. I saw a screenshot of someone who had 5 THOUSAND stigma bags. This was the mother of all bugs and the rollback needed to happen. First, try to calm down and recognize what was going on around you and see that this was necessary. Then, write to Support calmly and see if there is something they can do for you.
