    Because EC bug wasn't a bug.

    It was a combination of badly implemented features that together created a way for players to exploit the game mechanics (which is against the ToS). Additionally it was never given the green light by an admin to exploit it, when GMs took notice they told people to avoid using it until they fix it and many people either ignored it or created chaos by kicking unwilling players in order to make a bigger confusion by throwing dirt to everyone and avoid punishment just for themselves.

    Stormwing transfer is not possible without GM intervention AND it was specifically asked by the community if it is an abuse or not and we got a confirmation both in the forums and from the support urging us to use the token restoration policy to do it.

    Hi @Arhangelos-KT thanks for reply 😊

    Well right now I have a problem of controlling my emotions from having too much expectations to some people ,I've causing a problem in my family in past couple days ,I trying to control my devil inside me so please don't think too much if I writing something really weird or spamming 😘 and I'm sorry for all aggressively posts I did

    I took no offense to anything you wrote. There is absolutely no need to apologize to me.

  3. You could reroll a sorcerer, which is a Vandal minus the instant dmg and the survivability.

    Play as  Ranger and you will know what mean "Nerfed Class" and it still getting more nerf on upcoming patchs 

    Yeah it is a nerfed class when they have 1000 knockbacks and stuns and throw everything instantly while still having the benefit of hide and fight initiation.

    Hmm "Fan Creations" ? well I guess you could be right  about that 🤣

    Well I don't agree with you @Arhangelos-KT sure let's go the classic is primary but if no response from NC ? what we can do ? keep asking ?
    It's like you doing same thing over and over and no response for me I don't know why would I keep doing that. It's quite depressing for me if I doing something and I got nothing but emptiness.

    I really don't know what we going to say about Aion now beside get classic ,complain about events ,ultimate transformation hardly anything can be done.
    Nothing really fun on Aion anymore ,we all stuck at home or get a deadly vaccine that fatally you ? o_O

    At least I'm having fun with this fan creation please let me having fun a bit ? 😛

    What I mean is that us asking to get the classic is pretty much the only thing we could ask for. The mods most people are suggesting are private-server oriented.

    I like how in RU servers they have an NPC that offers EVERY single skin of the game from past up to now with specific coins that you get from killing end bosses, and that is in their retail version. A good way to make people want to do pve instances and enjoy the role playing aspect for the MMO-Role-Playing-G. But these people are running their game 100% differently than NCWest does.

    If I could make an aion version it would be far different than retail and the existing classic ones.

    Again: I am not against these posts, it is just they serve no other reason since getting classic to begin with is a far dream for us and even if we ever got it we would have literally 0% power on what will be implemented, as this decision would have to go against the retail servers and it would have to be 100% an economic-driven move for the prosperity of NCWest. 

    When we ask for retail we ask for the fun of it, for enjoying it. NCWest won't simply bring an aion classic server for us to enjoy the good old days. they would have to inject every possible penny-sucking mechanics they could so as to get as much money they can from the hype before it dies as well.

    I never attempted a transfer because idk I don't give a shit I guess, but just curious -- after transferring it, do you have to enchant it from the lowest level egg all over again? Or does it show up at the final stage and you can get an Apostle right away?

    It is the same level and it is a "brand new" egg so it has the upgrading quest as well, so if you transfer a fully upgraded egg it will have again the apostle quest.

    @Kibbelz Back in the day before you joined there was another unintended mechanic by NCsoft/west, This was to do with evergale canyon. NCwest previously banned anyone who exploited that unintended mechanic and if the mechanic is unintended i think you should consider being consistent with NCwest's CoC/ToS and so on and ban every player who exploited it this time around.

    It after all is the players fault for abusing something rather than reporting the unintended mechanic.

    But the existence of this very same thread proves it wasn't an abuse because the first post asks this and other people already posted snapshots of the messages with the admins confirming it was eligible for transfer. They didn't regard this an abuse and it was their own call. The reason people wanted to transfer it was because we knew the mechanics of the game better than the GMs.

    f6260934425defde42e9211beabd08cf02fcab6c

    Later on they understood that the egg keeps giving the upgrading quest again they realized that they do not want this to happen so they named it an abuse

    59d442f0b6fa585ee6e73b534cacbd89ecd166d6

    They can't say we did something wrong because we asked them and they allowed this to happen. EC was an ingame bug that we never asked if it is ok to exploit. It is just some of us understood it is not intended and avoided using it while others used it and many abused it (forcefully kicking unwilling people out of EC so they also get extra entries to make sure everyone has it exploited so they won't get a ban themselves only)

  6. Damn I knew I should have rushed and used all my tokens. I did 2 transfers so I got 3 apostles in total, I was about to get my 4th, I shouldn't have slacked.

    And these are my very first ever apostles. I have done a myriad of combines and every time I get the old 10 types. So this was the only chance for many people to get apostles finally.

    But we should be told about this, some people did 0 transfers. Not fair to them.

  7. See, I was right about these posts always ending up on a totally different topic. I also never said to not make these posts, it is just that they are almost obsolete, our posts about classic should at least focus on "lets get classic". Because if we get it it will most likely be what Korea got with regional nerfs/changes for us.

    At this point talking about classic mods is almost like roleplaying in the "Fan Creations" where people are allowed to dream of their imaginary Aion version with "has and haven't" to make it better.

  8. Broker bots are a thing since 6.0 when they tried to battle bots by making everything either soul bound or tradeable only via broker... which in the end gave bots and even bigger power because now they could still trade their things, but could snatch oblivious players' items.

    But without trying to sound bad, why is a post like this existing today? Unless you are a brand new player then you should have known this in early 6.2 not to put things for broker-trading in a too low price hoping to trade items to an alt without suffering high broker fees. We have all been victims back then and we all know it is safe to only trade near normal prices.

    and we have done numerous pleas for them to either loosen the broker fees or find a solution to this issue THEY caused.

  9. Here is the thing, your keyboard is like a 3rd party device/application, it is a physical keyboard with a windows support drivers to take the input for the game. But this is the only way to play aion so not regarded against the rules (duh).
    You can play with a controller if you have one or get a mouse that has more than the 2/3 buttons which makes your gaming easier. Still not against the rules since you are not altering the game itself and you are not automating the play.

    You can get keyboards with programmable keys, like holding a button for 3 seconds and it will repeat hitting itself until you press it again. This is a general feature of that keyboard and this keyboard is not sending anything to aion directly, but rather to your operating system and if aion is in the foreground then it will "catch" the automated keystrokes and probably do a shortcut with it (like spamming a specific skill on the skill bar), that is still not a 3rd party interference.
    BUT if you make your keyboard hit 3 numbers (like 1, 2 and 3) one after another with delays between them and you have ingame macros to your 1,2 and 3 shortcuts in the skill bar then you just made the simplest bot, which doesn't use artificial intelligence to take actions but it is still automated playing, thus against the TOS.

    If they find you grind, talk to you and you seem like automated playing then they can ban you even though you didn't directly do anything to the game and you merely used a legit input device with a legit operating system feature and went to toilet while your char kept spamming some keys.
    It is in their judgement to see if you are worthy to get banned or not for using a feature that they didn't design.

    This is why there is a fine line between "accepting" something but "not condoning" it. It is like ping reduction services, many services change your IP as well, and many times they are being used by botters in mass to hide their identity, so if by any means you get caught in a massive IP banwave then it isn't their fault since they already wrote that vpns/ping reducers are not supported officially and you use them on your own risk.

    ~~

    Shugo console is a 3rd party application specifically made to attach to the aion process and alter the client to be able to unlock features that are otherwise impossible. People have 3rd party applications to be able to walk through walls, glide upwards or stay in mid air to kill bosses without being attacked, these "features" are there but are locked, someone did a 3rd party to allow for it and we are arguing if doing so is legit or not because other games already have something similar.

    Other aion versions have ingame bots and we don't, so that is up to company to decide what they accept and what not.

    STAT CUBIC UPGRADE NPC !! and x10 Stat cubic mob drop :(( 

    We had this in the whle 6.x patch and they thought it was a good idea to destroy it and make the cubicle impossible to farm and then they implemented an ingame bot to compensate. We just never got the bot.

  11. Another classic oriented thread.

    No shade but these threads end up driven away from the main issue, people argue about what makes a game good vs bad, they make comparisons with other games, others debunk the comparisons, others insist and provide more comparisons and then everyone ends up talking a different topic to the original post.

  12. Ping reduction service a 3rd party? Of course not.

    Re-routing your internet connection has nothing to do with Aion. It is your connection to the internet via a different route of servers that are better for a specific target (in this case reaching Aion servers).

    It is like trying to play on an awful internet provider vs fiber.

    (on the next episode: playing Aion with a good pc is a 3rd party software since it gives you a smoother gaming experience and less dropped frames)

    Hello! I didn't expect so many replies at this post. I'll try summarising my points again.

    It's not about not getting a top tier transformation. It's about what the game is now and how NCSoft thinks it should handle new/coming back players.

    Just so that you know, I already had 3 lv 80 chars with decent pve (and even ok-ish pvp) gears. The jump event was just what brought me back - Not only to 'try a new class', but to see the game alive again (which happens whenever they pop these events, even tho it doesnt take long for the servers to be dead again).

    As I said, there were two main problems: the event held right before the jumping system (which is 99% aimed for new/returning players) and its effects. I don't really care if everyone has more stats if they grinded for it. It's only fair. But having twice the speed is just too much.

    You can say "oh, all that free stuff is just not enough for you", but, as I said, I tried playing with other people in a few dungeons. The only run I wasn't left behind, I felt like I was a big weight to the party, not for skills or anything, but because I was literally slower. REALLY slower. Only to find out that aion just had an event with legendary/ultimate transformations.

    But I get your points. The game really did more than it should* - It's an mmorpg and people should grind for every single thing in the game. But that was their own marketing. That's how they wanted to invite players to a dying game. And it's just not good enough to catch new people or old players.

    * = edit

    But if anything, we have pretty much every way now to get the transforms. Every 6 months or so we will be having an ultimate promotion event and this is literally nothing next to what people had to do to get one for years.

    And trust me, the transform was a game changer mostly in 6.x patch. Now in 7.x patch you get a myriad more impossible things to get before you can try to pvp.

    Just try to enjoy the game at your pace, if you want to be end game top tier, even playing the game for years might not be enough, you would need either a mini army of alts to feed your main or buy a lot of things from BCM to get a big step ahead. But that requires thousands of $$ to do it, and unless you are willing to be that player, never put yourself into the situation of thinking that the game is hard or unfair because it is made this way in 7.x. P2w is the driving force now.

  14. Try this: get the buff, put your rune and then relog (character screen and back), both buffs should work now and they multiply each other.

    This is how XP buffs/amulets/runes worked together in the past, unless they fixed this now.

    Hmn I think imma do this lol, thanks for making a thread on this topic @PpPpPpPp... Free 3 apostle xform hehe

    It is actually 4x, one from the main char +3 from the 3 tokens right? It was possible last year, I wish I knew it back then. I figured it out myself this year from an alt account that I did the mistake to give the pet to the wrong class.

  16. 1 hour ago, Flatten-KT said:

    This would be nice... I've been trying to buy one for my class for a few months now with no luck. It came up the one time I didn't have a lot of kinah ;_;

    How about no, you will have to farm 500 instances in hard mode to get some special mats, spend spend 100 XP marks for every try, have to go on open map to fight for a mob that will spawn once a day in a specific location, put your home into morgage and then have 0.001% chance to get the dazzling chest which will be 100% random class and random skill.

    You better appreciate.

    No you are not getting obsolete boxes back. The new ones have different contents.

    Eat your heart out:

    Hi everyone -

    Happy to share that we've confirmed a fix and will be restoring lost items in this week's upcoming maintenance. Thank you for your patience while we investigated a resolution.

    All the best,

     

  18. I was going to mention the same thing. LUT is the best for starters, you get a few millions in all 3 runs per char. But of course that means you need to have more level 80 chars for this. It might seem like a big job to do, but invest in making 12 chars into your account so you can benefit from things like this.

    The items box you get from the last bosses are also account wh storable in case you need to give an alt an item that is better than what it wears for starting.

    LUT is very good for item collections as well as it gives the essoterace items that are heavily implemented in the item collections and the instance is pretty much doable with a naked char.

    Totally agree.  Don't think I will be able to continue playing this, though I wish I could.  The frame rates are far too low considering my hardware, and even compared to my much weaker laptop the uplift in performance isn't anywhere near what you'd expect given the increase in hardware power and much higher thermal ceiling.  I'm lucky to maintain 60 FPS in an empty field with just mobs roaming around on Auto Graphics settings.  Any lower and the game starts becoming too ugly to want to look at.

    A lot of older games have this issue, as they don't really leverage the GPU very well.  CPUs also started favoring more cores/threads over insane increases in clock speeds (though they are starting to increase the core clocks more aggressively).  So, these games scale badly on newer hardware.  Even though the hardware is far more powerful, the gains in game performance are out of line because the hardware power didn't increase in the ways the game engine developers were assuming they would.

    EverQuest II is another game that has this issue, though AION's performance is far worse... while not even looking as good, IMO.

    Still, I think the game could be fun to play, but playing with these frame rates and the pretty insane [constant] FPS dips is definitely not fun - or ergonomic... screen tearing is not FTW.

    Yes the engine needs an upgrade, it is so outdated that newer GPUs with their new drivers are leaving that engine behind.

    @Vantheria-DN the 456.71 drivers are not compatible with my GPU lol, they support the 3000 series but not all of them (only 3080 and 3090) so 3060 and 3070 aren't compatible.

    I downgraded to another driver myself hoping to fix some other issues like freezing screen right when I get to character screen for the first time, so far it seems to have less problems. I also rarely get the problem with changing maps and getting an issue when I use my ping reducer. Maybe it helped that I went to older drivers. It was a hit and miss for me, I am not sure which one would have been better, I took some from 2020 December or something.

  20. It says you need a char level 10 at least to exist in the account and then use it to make a new char to 80. It is kinda super fast to level your toon to 80 but the truth is that the char that gets the jump gets a pretty good set to play with so yeah, it would be better to be able to use it on a char you already play too.
