  1. Weekly Server Maintenance - September 11, 2019

    Wanted to see if anything improved after my little hiatus, but seems it's just as bad if not worse. Quite the shame. I'm sorry but am I honestly supposed to believe there was over 6k players in the game during 7.0 launch? Unless you mean 6k toons.
  2. sorc vs. anything but

    The class by itself is very cocky. Leans on one leg, smiles and winks at you. You can always hide it behind the transform tho.
  3. Gear Progression 7.0

    That system should remain the same. If by chance it's made more difficult or any different than it should be, we all ought to be concerned as to why NA has little to no knowledge about the patches they receive.
  4. Gear Progression 7.0

    I'll try to explain this. All gear becomes Tier 1 (though it's not written anywhere). You have Genesis ancient gear. That is tier 1 that you bought pre 7.0. You can purify it to legendary then ultimate. In 7.0, you need different type of mats (named etium in KR but unsure in NA). You can purify your ancient T1 to ancient T2, or continue purifying til ultimate T1 and then purify that into ultimate T2. Tier 1 ancient > tier 1 legendary > tier 1 ultimate > tier 2 ultimate Or Tier 1 ancient > tier 2 ancient > tier 2 legendary > tier 2 ultimate. This only applies to PvP gear. All current PvE gear becomes automatically tier 1 and you might need to re-run instances to get tier 2.
  5. 7.0 Stream Screencaps

    That is correct. Prices have gone up but I am assuming kinah gain will be the same, if not worse.
  6. @Cyan - Transformation System

    Oh, I didn't watch the stream. I guess they have to keep it account wide since there's only two servers anyway. Of course they're not gonna fix what players demand (transform time) but hey, one good thing rite.
  7. @Cyan - Transformation System

    That is part of 7.0. We will get that as well.
  8. @Cyan - Transformation System

    Keep on dreaming.
  9. Jhyatsu - Legion Phoenix Order - lvl 6

    It's been "coming soon" since August 16th from last year. We have better chances for NCWest to release a patch instead.
  10. Let's talk about 7.0

    Dumah map is huge and reminiscent of Levinshor, Kaldor, Tiamaranta and Katalam all mashed together. Since there's more gears to obtain (mostly Tier 2) it can actually get confusing so to where to go first. The obvious idea is to do BoS (now solo) and FM (which is 3-man) but they did nerf the PvE attack and defense compared to the older gears. It has more stats but sacrificing PvE Def a lot. After that, it's IDD and PF (easy mode where Frigida doesn't transform) Painter class is fun for a while until you find yourself repeatedly using 3-4 skills which are mostly the draining ones (where you shoot at the enemy and there's this huge band draining their HP). Despite being physical class, it wears cloth and is equally squishy like a SW or Sorc. Conclusion: A lot of people will hate 7.0 for sure (what a surprise) and the new class. NA will also nerf lots of things that KR/EU have.
  11. FREE Vandal’s Gear Pack Reward Question

    Can, but it's not necessarily needed to play the game. On EU you need it if you want to access things like broker. On KR theres a lot of limitations as well, but you have like 4 spaces in broker and can talk in lfg.
  12. How do we get NCSoft to listen to us?

    Perfect example of a true free to play game: Path of Exile BDO is buy to play and holds itself fairly well although it's just another grind game. Remember Bless online? That was b2p and now the game is shutting down in September after being out in the western market for a year. Another factor you have decided to completely ignore: greed. Korea has a big competition when it comes to games, thus money is far important than player satisfaction. Both of these things are connected and very few are able to execute that f2p model. Aion was holding itself very well when it came out as f2p in the West, but it remained subscription based in Korea. Now that they went f2p in Korea as well, Aion is a different game. What gives?
  13. NCTaiwan is lacking communication with their players too

    Hong Kong is located in mainland China and is currently facing issues against the Chinese government. Taiwan wants to distance itself from that specific government, which could mean they're purposely blocking IP. Or maybe I've no idea what I'm talking about and this could mean NCSOFT is trying to find an excuse to shut the game down.
  14. How do we get NCSoft to listen to us?

    Korean MMOs have a different aesthetic compared to western games, Aion has a specific half-realism with touch of anime style and the character customization is fairly vast. Actually, most Asian games have this similar aesthetic. I tried WoW but never could bring myself to play it much either. I spent many years grinding my butt on Korean MMOs, and currently leaning in towards FFXIV (even bought the game already). MXM failed because it was overpowered by titans such as LoL and Dota2, let's remember that. NCSOFT has a bad habit of shutting down games if it brings them no profit, and the issue stems with the free to play model and greed. A model like that only brings a burst of players for a while but numbers eventually drop, forcing the company to come up with a crazy idea as fast as possible that could bring them benefit. In case of Aion, it's the transformation system. Aion was a fantasy MMORPG and should have stayed that way, but right now it lost its title of "fantasy", it's a furry's paradise.
  15. FREE Vandal’s Gear Pack Reward Question

    I know Aion used to have a sub (I've known about the game since its release), however I was thinking he meant Gold Pack in EU which technically can be considered a sub.
  16. Starting up again need some guidance!

    Your best bet is to ask in LFG and see if any legion is willing to take you in, I'm sure there's a couple too. If you remember your sin, it should be easier to familiarize yourself with the skills again.
  17. Returning players need guidance

    I would consider it strange to quit a game because of a legion that brought you bad experience. You have to play the game yourself in order to see whether it's "worth it" because that is always very subjective. Had it not been for the awful management, NA would be holding itself fairly well. There's a new class coming out on 21st, so if you wanna wait til then and check out then be my guest, but if not, remember leveling is very fast compared to older days. (You can hit max level in 24 hours if you're dedicated enough). PvE is easy, you just do certain instances in order, you get gear, rinse and repeat. This is fairly dreadful because the drop rates for certain parts are bad, meaning some part of the gear just never drops. PvP wise, you buy gear with Genesis Crystals (though I'd suggest to now wait for the new patch), from there you need tons of mats and AP to upgrade, rinse and repeat til you have ultimate +15. The most dissatisfying part of the game is the transformation system. You'll see what I mean when you start playing.
  18. Old returning player

    Did you check DN server for the SW? Could be there but not appearing. To start over is something you have to decide for yourself. A lot of things changed since 3.x, specially skills. You can try and familiarize yourself on the glad if you want, or try another class to get a feel of the game.
  19. FREE Vandal’s Gear Pack Reward Question

    Your account has to be created before 21st August, which already is because you posted here. I'm not exactly sure what sub are you talking about. You mean prestige? It's completely optional that has some perks (albeit currently questionable ones).
  20. Starter Pack

    Really? I have no problem playing EU. Once you buy your first GP you can just keep farming kinah and keep buying it off broker like normal. What you're saying there is from 5.x era or earlier, but in 6.x it became very different. Although I currently have like 100 days left, I'm leaning more towards playing Final Fantasy XIV instead.
  21. An old legionmate is Japanese playing from Australia. She told us that Aion wasn't as popular in Japan but it was definitely holding off itself better than NA. That should tell you enough that NCWest is responsible for NA's current condition.
  22. Let's talk about 7.0

    Yeah, this one is great, but unfortunately, the sales on NA are 10% or less (inventory sales that is, even lesser at NPC) for both prestige and non-prestige users.
  23. Weekly Server Maintenance - August 7, 2019

    True to that, but damn, when did NCWest ever double check the rewards and think "maybe this ain't a good idea after all".
  24. Weekly Server Maintenance - August 7, 2019

    Gee, no reset for entries and they announce the change day after? Sounds exactly like Tia event to me!
  25. How do we get NCSoft to listen to us?

    Gameforge's rights for publishing Aion end in January 2020 I believe.
