    Hi, i've been testing the kinah adquisition during last months on the new patch, and since the enchant rate provide more posibilities to upgrade gear, also this demand more kinah, also the housing feature started late decemberthe payment for maintance again, and also the retune of new superior gear is everytime more expensive, even enchant items consumes kinah wich i found completly ridiculous. So the couple ways to get kinah are really not enough and withthe time this will be taking more and more weight into the game. Months ago in the EU server of Aion, they imtroduced a custom change for extra kinah from all instances, and it really helped players, i truly believe we need this change, and even we need more ways to recover the kinah movement in the game, becuz every week is harder and harder to sell stuff in the broker, because people is running out of kinah for real. Kinah bundles are not even worth at all, they not even a sure craft, and the chance of get more than 5 million is really low, this must be improved. The Broker tax the the core problem right here, cuz it's literally killing the new economy model of the game, we need to fix that for real. We even have less items to generate kinah like skins from ingame like Innocent Aris or Cat weapons from guestblooms, or even the lucky kinah heartbloom from the housing was also a good way to produce kinah pasively. BCM is not really helping too, the store right now is a shame, completly empty of worth items to buy or resell for kinah, you took off most costumes (specially the good ones), the motions, the mounts and the pets should have been replaced for minion contracts in the BCM too. So as conclusion fixes for kinah issues in the game in na are: 1.- More kinah from instances like EU did. 2.- Kinah bundles with better chances to get more than 5kk, and maybe low the quantity of items needed to craft. 3.- Low the broker tax before it end up annihilating the game economy for once. 4.- Maybe include kinah reward in other stuff like Pvp Instances and Sieges. 5.- Bring back the housing feature that aloow players to farm ingame skins Innocent Aris and cat Weapons with Guestblooms and the Lucky Kinah Heartblooms that just prosduce extra kinah everyday. 6.- And i believe is the most important, give us decent BCM, with worthly items to buy (or sell), and no just skins we used to get easy with kinah in sanctum or from Luna. I entered the Aion RU website store, and i felt shame when i entered,they have almost every single skin that Aion has ever released able to purchase wheveer you want.... it's so frustrating to wanna buy stuff in the BCm and not found anything that really worth. I wanted to buy the Cute Sheep mount during last weeks of 5.8 it was for 1600 NC coins, i rather to save some money for 6.2 and now is not even in the store, and the only mounts in store are even more expensive, beeing "not that good". Please @Cyan i know you guys have a lot, A LOT of pending fixs and many stuff that is in "soon" state, but i wanna make sure you guys know about this really important problem.

    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.

    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!

    @Cyan @Hime looking at other region of SAME event, we see our huge different on reward https://aionpowerbook.com/powerbook/Item/188072053 Ultimate PvP Enchantment Stone Legendary PvP Enchantment Stone Ancient PvP Enchantment Stone Fighting Spirit Fragment this is just a few. After almost 8 month of patchs we STILL havent got a good event for gear pvp. At begin of patch u said u wouldnt have this kinda event due to how patch works,but most of the p2w players have got their pvp gear full ulti around +10 to +15. While the normal players even with red gear its low enchantment, duo to the lack of content to get it. Could u guys add those to the event? Or add on next event? With a decent prize on npc. Take in mind RU-EU to make those events please. Because lately ours is kinda meh compare to them thank u for ur time

    I cannot believe we are the joke around the Aion community at the moment. We have everything nerfed. We used to make fun of Aion EU for having everything nerfed in the past, people had to make complaints in order for their GMs to bring back the original rewards in instances and other stuff. But 6.2 came and our publishers thought it would be great to reduce us down thinking this would make the game better for us or something! Right now there is nothing better in Aion NA than any Aion in the world, whatever others have, we have it worse! Our transformations have nerfed stats Our transformations have nerfed time Our BCM is more empty than other cash shops (they said they are adding things, they added some but that is so slow, BCM = money for them) Our Gold Sand trader shop is more empty than other publishers Selective retuning takes 1 Luna normally, WE NEED 160 luna (aka 2$) per selective retuning, give 2$ to get a chance to lower that 1 stat, REALLY! Transparent transformation scrolls are 1 NC coin = 20 transformation scrolls EVERYWHERE except us, we used to have them 80 NC coin for 1 scroll, 1$ to look like your char for 4 minutes... now they made it 20 NC coin for 1..., which is ridiculous since our transformations have a nerfed time! We have no skins left anywhere except thsoe few that nobody wants, while other developers are giving their gamers every skin possible in the game to fill up the gap that 6.2 patch made, we get nothing. We are the only Aion that has no events anymore (the ones we get are insulting us) I am sick of people saying "our publishers are only a few and they do not have time to fix this or that"... my question is did they have enough time to screw our game? If I was a new player (and since I am from Europe) I wouldn't even consider NA, it is just that I play here for many many years and I cannot quit everything to start over in another part. ---------- Remember I am not asking you to fix anything, or change something for better, I am asking you to stop touching the game, if you do not care about it, at least let us enjoy the real Aion! I am making this thread because 6.5 is coming, I hope we get the real 6.5 with the official stats, otherwise this game will continue to die a little more every day.

    Well I give up. Tired of begging people to fix a game I'm financially supporting. No communication. They have finally convinced me this game is done. How can you not know how to fix your own game? Like the title says. Stick the game up your ass.

    Hello everyone, Due to the recent issues related to Enchantment Rates and Daevanion Marks of Knowledge, you will be receiving items in your mailbox. For any Enchantment Stones used between March 27 and April 3 you will be receiving equivalent stones based on the quantity and type used. For every 25 Ancient PvP/PvE Enchantment Stone used during the affected week, you'll receive 25 of the same Enchantment Stones. This will be rounded up if you used few than 25 Stones. This means if you used 11 Ancient PvP Enchantment Stones you will receive 25 of the same type. If you used 47, you will receive 50. You'll receive 10 Legendary PvP/PvE Enchantment Stones rounded up to the nearest 10. You'll receive 5 Ultimate PvP/PvE Enchantment Stones rounded up to the nearest 5. In addition to this, we will also be sending out 6 Daevanion Marks of Knowledge to every player that purchased at least one Mark last week. If you are eligible to receive these items you will see them in your mailbox by the end of the day Monday, April 8. Thank you.

    @Cyan @Gideon Make it happen, give your players a reason to spend real money on cosmetics. People of Aion, please take my image and begin a new era of shardposting--I mean, scrollposting. [EDIT: Direct link for the image: https://i.imgur.com/k9WKZ8m.png pass it on]

    @Cyan Ditto -- I feel like you all(Whoever is in charge of making changes to Aion's in game problems) are missing an important message from the community about the transparent transformation scroll. Aion has such vivid and creative ways to customize characters. There are SO MANY of us who cannot stand the way the transforms look, and have been communicating this issue to you since the patch released. We don't want to be stuck with them 100% of the time. How do you not realize this is a staple of the Aion experience???? Why is it you cannot put a affordable ('new/average player affordable' not 'real cash shop only player') quality of life improvement like this into the game? We're not buying transparent xform scrolls out of your cash shop--we prefer to spend it on the contracts, costumes, and alternative ways to get kinah. Why is it you(Whoever I am sure its not an individual, and this message is not for one person either) at NCSoft taken this piece of the game away from a majority players and only made it available to those who can afford a scroll that is often ten times the price of the regular scroll, and made it far less accessible to everyone??? I don't know what the Korean player base says about the transforms, but so many do NOT like having to wear the same old xform skins day in and day out. Put your old armor skins you took away from us on the cash shop, allow us to run around in transparent scrolls, and watch your cash flow better! I am constantly explaining to new players they won't be able to enjoy their character customization at all until this is fixed. I am literally embarrassed to introduce my friends to this game on the premise they will have to spend the first part of their gaming experience in Aion as something like a penguin or polar bear. Even the legendary and up are acquired taste and rob the player of being able to be THEMSELVES in appearance. Come onnnnnnnn lets gets some news on this and let us enjoy our toons again the way it was originally designed! All it would take is affordable and readily available transparent transform scrolls! Why why why must we fight so hard for something like this????

    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

    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.

    We have said it so many times so far, that BCM items should be brokerable, there are people willing to spend ingame money for transformation contracts for example, but can't, while there are people willing to buy transformation contracts from BCM and then put them in broker. NCSoft will be selling more People who can spend more real money for ingame currency would buy more items to put them in broker And free to play players can buy everything they want with extra work to get the kinah needed. Everyone wins and most importantly the game doesn't die out.

    Another day, another dollar not spent on skins because nobody can see them

    I know that this topic will probably be closed because there are other discussions about the same issue going on, but wtf is the matter with you guys? Seriously. How do you expect to make money off of costumes if we can't see them? I have this amazing glowing-white dress that I can't see because 95% of the time I'm a freaking goat (or whatever is that Rotund transformation). Come on now. It's been 4 months. Want to milk some money? How about sell the transparent scrolls for the same price as normal scrolls on the kinah shop, and then put ALL OF THE SKINS THAT YOU POSSIBLY CAN on the cash shop for 200-400 NCoins? Of course that it wouldn't be your only income, but I for one would be buying a few skins that I love.

    So basically Hime's and Gideon's comment during the 6.0 patch preview about "updating GST eventually" was a lie. If transparent scrolls are going to be as taboo as the damn shards, I'm already gonna pack my things.

    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.

    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

    Okay @Cyan, what a nice thing to do. What a nice thing to do to update your policy last second. What a nice thing to pull the rug out from all the people who hoped they could go home. Oh, and to top it all off you didn't tell anyone!! You sneakily updated the website at the last second, and updated how you're doing transfers, and.. and.. didn't even go through the trouble of updating the website. Look. I've supported NC during a looooot of mess ups. I've understood a lot of things. I've never been this mad. I've paid for prestige for YEARS, I've bought skins, I've paid to support the game because I've believed in it. This though, this is just too terrible. Now to my main point. I've played this game for 7 years, paid prestige for 2 of them, bought skins for all of them. I started on TM, and only played on that server for all that time. I went to EK because I personally didn't like compensation gear and really liked the idea of a fresh start. I've worked so damn hard for this server. I've advertised it, I've helped new players, I've run instances with pugs, I've interacted with the community, I've brought SO. MANY. PEOPLE. BACK. AND KEPT THEM PLAYING, who wanted a fresh start on a game they always loved. I've played this game for 7 years, paid prestige for 2 of them, bought skins for all of them. I started on TM, and only played on that server for all that time. I went to EK because I personally didn't like compensation gear and really liked the idea of a fresh start. Please NC. Let me go home. I'm not okay with this. This is sneaky. That's the only word I have for it. You promised something for two weeks, we worked hard those two weeks, and you pulled the rug out from under us. You're genuinely making me think of uninstalling the game. Something I haven't even considered in 7 years. Thank you.

    @Cyan Locking threads because of "no constructive criticism" looks bad on your end. Whenever the community does give you constructive criticism to pass on to the higher ups, we're simply ignored, or treated like we're children. You guys need us more than we need you, from a business point of view, what NCWEST is doing to their consumers is pathetic. When people are spending money to achieve a sense of gratification in-game, even that isn't possible at this point. Empty promises since 4.x , spending resources on a system that doesn't need fixing while wasting another 2 weeks of no enchanting, no proper gp for EK sieges, transform contracts still aren't the correct ones and a lot more that you are aware of. You want constructive criticism? Tell your team to do their job. The sales team should be replaced, so does the marketing and QA team. We're not even asking for much, NCWEST was a decent company up until 2-3 years ago for some reason. Or at least be honest with us and tell us that Aion isn't of interest and just shut it down in NA, because clearly .. selling a product that no one in that company know nothing about is very embarrassing for you lot. If a sales member in NCWEST doesn't know/believe in what they're selling, what makes you think the consumers will trust them? Anyway, not saying this is your fault* but you're the only CM on forums and you need to pass this information on that we've been giving you since 6.0 started. Stop giving us empty promises, fix what needs fixing and that's it.

    I thought it was pretty heartless of them to let go of Gaile Gray In any case, it's poor taste to wish unemployment on anybody, even if you dislike them. We don't know what kind of restrictions Gideon (or any of the employees that interact with the community for that matter) had in doing his (their) job. I fault poor decision making by leadership for everything that has gone wrong with NC's games in the past few years. It's unfortunate that employees and players alike have to deal with the fallout.
