  1. Necro thread... but anyway they already shut down Aion legions at war. I doubt Aion2 will see the light of day.
  2. How's the current state of the game?

    If you like packs of furries throwing lead based paint at you then by all means come back.
  3. Well your wrong and right... while Clerics have never been the best DPS in the game they have come pretty close. I remember when there was such a thing as clorcs. After that Clerics were so impossible to kill they could beat any class in the game if gear was close to equal.
  4. @Cyan and NCSoft Just want to say thank you!

    Dang-it Heart how many times do people on the forums have to tell people not thank NCSoft... now they are going to nerf the event and make it so you have to spend money. Truly a stupid and noob mistake.
  5. Aion Classic Up to version 5.8 All Maps

    My wife has naturally curly hair... I mean really curly and North Carolina in the summer is absolutely brutal. Let just say in the summer suns out buns out in my household usually means some hair twisties and a wife frantically putting her hair in a bun after giving up trying to style it. Need I mention a passing summer shower.
  6. Is it weird I read that in a British dialect.
  7. How do we get NCSoft to listen to us?

    Just do what everyone else is doing... go play FFXIV
  8. Your Painter's name

  9. i think it's time

    Already left this game just come to forums every once in a while to see whats new... cause this was my first mmo and has a special place in my gaming history. Anyway already went back to FFXIV with its magnificent (thus far) expansion. There is even a waiting list to log on... seriously a game that old and I still have to wait to get on.
  10. What I'm feeling about the Game now

    @Cyan your game is in trouble even Aly is not defending it anymore.
  11. This buff on pve instances feel bad for ungeared ppl

    They still are if you know how to gear and play them right. Sorcs and SMs were ridiculous last patch (seriously, my SM with 2 red pieces was outdpsing my sin with 9 red pieces in PF). Sorcs are still high DPS, SMs are too. If you’re pulling 8k DPS (which is like 7m total damage in a Beritra fight), then you’re either not geared, or you need to work on your rotation. Like I said earlier, there are more than a few sorcs who can outdps me on Dn-Asmo with similar gear, and I’m doing about 17-22m total damage in IDD. There they are.... the vague obligatory get gudnoob posts. We even got the even more vague some sorc somewhere beat me, the king of DPS, as an example. Only thing missing now is naming the sorc who is a true master and that no one could ever possibly catch up to in gear/ping/rotation as the shining example of how wrong everyone else is in the game.
  12. Do you honestly believe this? Like wholeheartedly believe the words you typed? Aion is a game that even those who currently play are tired of it.. There is nothing appealing for players to come and participate in. @HealingSquid-KT
  13. Its mobile... so its going to be a P2W POS. Aion2 will be just as niche as Aion in the west.
  14. The age of Asmo ?

    Ishraphel Asmo..... nuff said
  15. Chanter needs a nerf

    Yea and to which practically everyone who replied to your post either disagreed with you or found your post laughable. You even started, "this is going to shock some of you." A troll post doesn't count. @Matsukamy-KT
  16. Chanter needs a nerf

    Never have I ever would have guessed someone would make a please nerf for a chanter. Its just sweet awesome.
  17. Not dealing with twinks when the game was new... It already took a slowing leveling process and virtually halted it. New players could not level and eventually left the game. Not dealing with server imbalances Most of the servers were Elyos dominated to the point only people who wanted to pvp went. Yea I went old school. But NCSoft hasnt changed a bit, it takes WAY TO LONG to respond to things and when they do they completely overreact and change to the complete opposite breaking the game in the other direction. I.E. Finally doing something about twinks by completely ruining pvp.
  18. I would absolutely love the idea of a server that went back to 1.0. However, one small problem would need to be fixed... not losing xp when you die. This would help stop the problem that plagued Aion when i started, legions of twinks shutting down whole sections of leveling maps for days. If you do not then you would run into the same problem, an already grindy grind to level cap slowed to a crawl or halted entirely because you cannot step one foot out of a village (in case of alsig village you couldn't even fly to the dang thing since the twinks found out how to get around the guards.)
  19. Aion's Music

    Aion music, in my most humble opinion, has always and probably always be known for its music. Aion is the only MMO in which I do not turn off the music. Actually I'll listen to its OST playing other games. Here are some of my favorite musical pieces from Aion. What musical numbers do you remember most about Aion. Lord Lannok: The drums in the song reminds me of Japanese drums used to keep evil spirits away... which is fitting. The fast pace and the addition of "bat sounds" just adds to the we are in a creepy haunted castle vibe. Tiamaranta Balaur Fortress: One of my favorites... It reminds me of a dangerous dance (tango) between Tiamat, the Elyos, and the Asmodians. Matches perfectly to the atmosphere, setting and story. (My favorite starts at 6:15) This music plays in the Balaur Fortress outside the Eye, in the middle of Tiamaranta. Aswell as in the Basilika Cavern below the Eye. Sadly the area was taken out of the game. Sillus Mountains: Arguably one of the best pieces coming out of Katalam. Sad, hopeful all at the same time... no wonder it became an instant Aion OST classic. Very close runner ups: Marchutan Priory: Matches perfectly withe the Lord of Fate Curse of Ground: I remember first going to Pandemonium with the music playing and leaving the tunnel and first seeing the massive walls of the city very cool. Step into the next world: reminds me of the Elyos to a tee. boisterous but it works Theobomos Hotel: I would go to the market area in Sanctum just to listen to it Wings of Knight: Just reminds me of Aion Brown Sanctuary: Again I would go to the Temple of Knowledge just to listen to it.
  20. Wedding in the lore

    Although not married but in a very Shakespearean love affair would be Bollvig the Blackheart and Myanee. Bollvig an Asmodian deava traveling to Elysea saw and fell in love with an Elyos human named Myanee. She in turn fell in love with him thus starting the love affair. However other Elyos found out about the affair and had Myanee killed as a traitor. When Bollvig found out he went insane and became a cursed undead vowing vengeance on all the Elyos. He is found in storm circle to this day cursing Elyos as undead thralls unless a strong and courageous daeva can find away to stop him.
  21. More bad press for Aion

    "Wings over Atreia" hopefully old players would know were articles dealing with Aion on Massively now MassivelyOP website. Well the article is definitely not a glowing endorsement of the revamped Aion. https://massivelyop.com/2019/01/06/wings-over-atreia-aion-abolished-trading-and-other-foolish-moves/
  22. So I find the painter class.... well the square peg in the round hole... it just doesn't fit. So, come up with your own class that doesn't exactly fit Aion. My class: The SciFi class Class: DPS Armor: Plot Armor (at the beginning of each fight you are either one shotted, invincible. or it has RNG stats.) Weapons: energy gun, energy sword (physical damage) Unique about the class: Stances 1. Apocalypse stance: The future some calamity whether natural or artificial ended civilization. Civics, sciences, engineering have come to a halt or went back to an earlier level or development. However surviving in this world has made you tough as nails. 25% more damage while using energy sword, 75% less damage while using energy gun. All defensive stats greatly increased offensive stats minimal increase. All debuffs placed on you has their time reduced and all DoTs have reduced damage. Cleansing, wiping, or expired debuffs heal you a % of your health. Gain HP, MP, attack speed and run speed per debuff or DoT. All PC damage is reduced. Gain: I am a Carrier passive. All enemies within 3m receive a random debuff, or Dot every 4 secs, and enemies receive damage every sec. 2. Utopia Stance: The future is bright and peaceful, disagreements are handled by diplomacy but if it come down to a fight highly advanced tech and weapons would easily defeat any foe. Cooperation is highly promoted. 25% more damage with energy gun, 75% less damage with energy sword all defensive stats reduced. physical attack, and crit, attack speed, and run speed are increased by a certain % according to how many members are in your group. Aggro is reduced for caster by a certain % according to group size. Gain United Federation passive: for every buff used by a team member there is a chance the buff will be copied to everyone in the team. (The buff has reduced time duration). Buffs that are not copied will have their time duration increased for the caster of the buff. 3. Dystopia Stance: Some futures start out with the best intentions but some fatal flaw that everyone by page and age 5 will realize whats coming except to those living in it. It will come as a great bioshock when everything comes crashing down. Having survived the collapse while everyone else was acting like the walking dead grants you great insight. 15% more damage with energy gun, 15% more damage with energy sword. Increase in offensive and defensive stats, increased attack and run speed when operating outside of a group. Gain: Anything it Takes to Survive passive: Gain physical attack, crit, and defensive stats for every enemy (PC or NPC) or ally (PC/NPC not in your group) within 25m of you. Any pve enemy you casue damage to while not in a group will count as your kill/loot no matter how much damage you have done to hit. 4k DP skill female: Mary Sue: you are the expert in anything and everything: Increase physical/magic attack, magic crit/crit, physical/magical defense skills, cast/attack/run speed increased. All attacks due physical and magical damage. 4k skill male: Main Character: You cant die. you will always have at least 1 HP. The lower you r HP goes the more MP/physical attack/crit/attack and run speed you will gain. All attacks have 100% chance to cause extra damage to the target and every enemy within 10m of the target. Once effect ends heal for 100% of you HP and cleanse all debuffs and DoTs from you.
  23. I would pay a monthly fee for this game if it had a classic server (with some of the small life improvements added in)
  24. Backlash is (hopefully) Coming

    NCWest I do not know if folks over there are keeping up with other games but EA and Bethesda are taking a nerking beating right now from gamers. Two recently launched AAA games are already steeply discounted (the same as server merges for MMO's IMO.), and Battlefront 2 actually started a government crackdown in Europe. The reaction from Bethesda and EA/Dice has been nothing short of head scratching, as if they had no idea this was coming and completely taken aback. EA stock is plummeting and Bethesda is in the middle of one of the worse PR disasters in the company's history. (However the memes are hilarious.) I hope this rise up by gaming consumers, finally figuring out how markets work, continues and if it does sooner or later it will hit the MMO market. So NCWest you have 1 or 4 choices: A. Knock some sense into NCSoft Korea to give y'all more independence with the game in order to make changes needed for the NA market B. Start training your PR department to not go into full panic mode when/if it does hit. C. Cut your loses and abandon Aion. D. Pray to google so gamers go back to take my money mode and all this goes away.
