  1. is it worth to come back?

    Aion is a game that demands a lot of time, but also can be very rewarding. If Aion is your only hobby, and you have the time to do her justice then yes, it's still worth playing. Playing casually is easier now than it was, but you arent going to ever compete at a respectable level without some investment of some sort.
  2. Chanter Meta & Gear

    Precision translates to Macc, Crit and Acc, Power to Attack and PhysDef Socket Precision until you have enough MA, then you can branch off into other stats. To get Apollon gear, take Wing Marks (Broker/Events/AoE) +Vibrant Dawn pieces (from boxes in AoE) to the trader on the right hand side of your Archdaeva capital building (left side would be Blood Crusade reps). Apollons is currently the 3rd best available PvE gear, but in the scheme of things it is VERY close to 1st (Harvester celestial gear) and 2nd (Sophisticated Frigada). Current PvP Meta wise I would say 2.3k MA is preferable for general purpose PvP. Best thing to do is find yourself a legion that is happy to take new members and duel as many equal geared opponents as possible.

  4. How to PvP in Aion | A step-by-step guide

    The hell? People in WoW don't complain when someone who clearly has put in hundreds of hours of raiding beats them as a casual player. Returning players are given the world in Aion these days, and you can spend literally nothing and be competetive in Aion. The people who I know that do have leveled an alt army so that can simply gather far higher amounts of raw materials and mass participate in events. This is what is required to be top level competitive heaps of MMOs When I raided 5 nights a week in WoW I didn't have a choice even to which class I played. If I didn't have a max level toon of every class I wasn't allowed in the guild. If I didn't have an entire DUPLICATE account to raid with I wasn't allowed in the guild. If a toon wasn't best in slot pre raiding there would be someone who was who would get my spot. If people for some reason just don't understand that leveling alts is important (which is clearly obvious) it's their own fault.
  5. I recommended AMD in the thread that originally brought up the topic, but AMD sets don't suffer the misunderstanding that Intel's do as they typically are able to perform regardless of threading. Why bring up a topic that doesn't need addressing?
  6. How to PvP in Aion | A step-by-step guide

    If you care about winning in a modern MMO, don't complain when you get beaten by someone who cares more than you do.
  7. Still lame no skill pvp in the game?

    This needs locking.

    Put your settings to max and type /ping. Then repeat with minimum settings. The reason why we say it affects your ping is because we are referring to that exact feature in game and the observed effects it has. It does not decrease latency, which you are correct in inferring, however that is not what we are referring to. FPS also affects other things VERY slightly such as maximum jump height.
  9. What are you listening to?

    I love rap. I think southerners are genuine. This is tickling my fancy.
  10. Real Life Pet Peeve Thread v2

    We have 3 in our city, population of about 100k. Brutal Deluxe in our central city mall, NeoTokyo on the main drag (same street as the mall) and Akiba Direct just a block north of that. Australia really is the best.
  11. Much constructive. Such wow.
  12. While replying to another thread it occurred to me that very few players understand exactly why Aion seems like it runs terribly with amazing PC specs 8 years after it's release. Allow me to explain, and hopefully save someone thousands of dollars in their efforts to run this dinosaur smoothly. Lets go back 15 years (that's how old this stuff really is), long before Intel's misguided mitts grabbed us all by the nads with their hyperthreading magic. To the days when CryEngine 1, the infrastructure Aion is built on, was first being designed. Back then, technology was lagging behind a little, and the engine was built primarily to run Single Threaded Games. Aion, and other Single Threaded Games, benefit most from fewer, more powerful cores, as opposed to the now widely popular many core, many multi-threaded CPUs being touted by Intel. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/singleThread.html Above is a list of CPUs, gauged by their ability to run a single thread, and due to Aion being a single threaded game, the higher on this list the CPU is, the better the game will run. Many people fall into the trap of thinking bigger and more expensive will undoubtedly run any video game better, when this is simply not the case, specially with these older games still running on now relatively ancient engines. As you can see, a $140 i3 will run Aion better than CPUs up to and well over 10x that price. We had all just previously, wrongly assumed the game was just poorly optimized, when really it was our PCs that were poorly optimized. "But Mempo, I want to have a million chrome tabs open while I watch Netflix and play Aion at the same time!" That is a valid argument, and a tiny i3 will not likely hold up as well if you have many different processes going at once. Fortunately a lot of this has much more to do with Memory rather than CPU, and our tiny i3 will still likely be all you need. "But Mempo, I want to play newer games too!" That's perfectly fine. Of all those on the single thread list I recommend the i5 8600K, as it is a modestly priced CPU that will run Aion very well, as well as hold it's own with games that can benefit it's from multi-threading. You do not need an i7 or one of the new i9s on a gaming PC. Those CPUs are really there for business purposes; people rendering 4k video or doing very high quality modeling. Have you seen the Gantz:0 CGI on Netflix? THAT's what you need that kind of power for. "B-b-b-but Mempo, ma i7/i9!" Sorry, you fell for the meme. Don't worry. We all did. Now, while I couldn't find anything specific to Aion not tied to the old forums or in Korean, many other games have similar issues, and here is some further reading that could help clear up any lingering confusion. https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/156273-this-is-why-a-fast-cpu-not-the-amount-of-cores-or-the-gpu-is-important-for-ksp/ You are welcome.

    This is actually a very iffy topic, as Aion is a single core threaded game. See - https://www.cpubenchmark.net/singleThread.html A simple $200 i3 will outperform the $2000 new i9s due to the fact the Crytek engine (which Aion is built on) cannot utilize the hyperthreading technology Intel are so stupidly proud of. EDIT: You will notice that the AMD cards seem to lag behind on this list, but if you compare that simple i3 to a similarly priced AMD card that performs (relatively slightly) worse, the AMD pulls ahead in literally every other category. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp[]=3000&cmp[]=2941
  14. SW Weapon Harvester + ?

    This. You need the attack speed.

    Also, I know Intel/Nvidia have good multicore processors and great cards, but if you want Aion to run as best as possible I recommend going AMD. The next generation of consoles is being built with AMD architecture in mind as well, so choosing AMD over Intel/Nvidia will "future proof" your PC upgrade as well.
