  1. Skin Farming in 7.0

    I found a way to get Conqueror's armor, at least in one race. See cloth set below. It's apparently a general drop in Cygnia, which would require more time than I'm willing to spend. However, there's a named monster called Adapter Kremio that drops one piece each time you kill him, with a 5 minute respawn. With a bit of trying, I came up with the method in the second image. If you put a Spiritmaster and its spirit right in front of Kremio's spawn point, as below, Kremio will take a couple steps and start a fight with either the Spiritmaster or spirit. The spirit will come to the defense of the Spiritmaster and kill Kremio. If you have an auto-looting pet, the setup will drop a piece of armor in your inventory every 5 1/2 minutes or so. So you set it up as shown and then go AFK for an hour or two. You come back to your inventory filled mostly with Conqueror gear, but some other drops as well. Delete the stuff you're not interested in and go AFK again. You can get a complete set in a day. This method depends on the spirit being able to kill the mob, which either requires a strong spirit (78 in this case) or a weak mob (Kremio is 73). However, the bump up to the new armor in Lakrum helps a lot.
  2. No, not "per account." It says "Staying logged in for 30 minutes will grant one hammer, with up to 6 earned per account per day." It looks like each of the standard maximum of 8 characters per account can spend 3 hours AFK getting hammers. So you can spend 24 hours per day getting hammers.
  3. Does Anyone Even work here anymore?

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

    I mentioned something about this before. In past years it seemed the BCM and in-game snowballs were the same, but the probabilities differed by server and race.
  5. Snowball Event Rewards Gacha Probabilties

    I did this a few years back. What I discovered is that the probabilities varied by server and race. Apparently, NCSOFT can pump money into servers that need it while controlling inflation on servers that have more active economies. Can you figure out if this is occurring this year?
  6. Zombie AFK jumping fest.

    The problem I have with the jumping characters is that they are so unimaginative. I've found better ways to "rich" in Aion in recent years, but: (a) I think you can have the character sit down, then put a weight on the spacebar. This prevents the inactivity timeout without the jumping. (b) Keys besides spacebar prevent inactivity timeout with the character standing still. Keyboards vary, but I recall something like putting a weight on the insert key on the numeric keypad works. Probably other keys.

    Vantheria: That was a really thoughtful post.
  8. Weekly Server Maintenance - October 9, 2019

    I had a related problem, up higher in this thread. Yeah, there is a problem with the Pandora gear. Cyan, please add to the problem list. It's not going to be hard to fix, but needs to be addressed.
  9. Weekly Server Maintenance - October 9, 2019

    I have a problem with the new Pandora gear, I think. I have a cleric that got the Pandora ultimate gear some time ago. For example, it's wearing an Ultimate Pandora Mystic Hauberk. When I look over what Pector offers for exchange, the only chain Hauberk is the Ultimate Divine Pandora Hauberk. However, this Hauberk is for physical players and has physical attack stats, but no magical attack stats. I didn't actually do all the quests in the last couple hours, but at the moment I think the Pandora gear will be unsuitable for some classes. But maybe I'm not understanding something.
  10. Pin me baby one more time

    Yes, the problem is still there. It did seem to go away for a week, but I'm not sure. The effect seems different now. Now when I enter the PIN (in character selection), the mouse clicks "bounce," meaning that one click may produce 2 or 3 or 10 character entries. Sometimes just one. So if I watch the eight boxes carefully, I can delete the extra clicks and log in pretty reliably. This is different than a few weeks ago. Back then, I'd click the mouse and it'd say that I was locked out and the client would exit. I wasn't actually locked out, because I could restart the client and try again. The previous problem could have had the same root cause: My one click back then "bounced" dozens of times making the system think I'd entered the wrong PIN many times.
  11. Beluslan memories

    Yeah, your note was about month after Lakrum was created, but Pandora Labor Agency was with the Ereshkigal's Wrath release in March 2019. I found it by the fact that the NPC has a green spot in the path. He's just 200 feet above the path. It was kind of fun trying to get up there. I looked for a discrete teleporter to no avail. I climbed a few mountains, which were not high enough. Then I got the idea of the lighthouse, which got me to the structure, but I thought it has a "force field" around it that I kept crashing into and then fall to the path below. It took me another day to dream up the strategy of going around the structure in the air for an entrance. It would be a decent quest, if it was more than extraneous scenery. https://www.aiononline.com/news/ereshkigals-wrath-patch-notes https://www.aiononline.com/news/awakened-legacy-patch-notes
  12. Beluslan memories

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

    I have had a problem like this for years.Basically, the "event" dialog gives incorrect information at times. When you first activate a character after a day or longer, the event dialog can have what I guess you'd call stale data. If you exit to character selection and connect again (after the timeout), the data will be correct. The stale data can have outrageous numbers, like mentioned above. It can also say that you can expect more rewards when you've exhausted your daily supply. It's a bug, but exiting to character select and reconnecting seems to clear it.
  14. Access Restriction Notice?

    I'd like to put forth a theory. Everybody can shoot me down. Bots seem to me to be an existential threat to NCSOFT. I believe inability to control them is why NCSOFT disabled the economy, leading to a huge amount of negative discussion on these forums. XIGNCODE was put in to suppress bots. So the one thing about AION that we can have more assurance in than anything is that XIGNCODE doesn't work. What if NCSOFT understands this and is trying to implement something better than XIGNCODE? If they did this, then maybe they'd roll out the new software a week ahead of disabling XIGNCODE, just to see if anything broke. If that happened, you might expect to see minor glitches in some security features, such as, for example, the PIN. Well, gee wiz, we're seeing glitches in a security feature. Maybe NCSOFT actually listened. I have no idea. I got a bunch of those messages too, but just in the last week.
  15. Do monsters drop anything?

    There are a lot of monsters. There is a new type of monster now appears on the map with a big special symbol. It is an elite that drops three transforms and a weapon every time (you attack solo). Clicking on the transform box give you a choice of about 10 transform options, which you should select depending on your class. The weapon is for your class. If you are in a group, the loot is not duplicated to all players. The respawn time seems to be 5 or 10 minutes. One time I torpedoed a L45 monster of this type from an L80 character. It disappeared in one attack with no loot.
