  1. Skin Farming in 7.0

    There is a nice thread here on the forums about farming skins in 6.0, but much of the info is outdated since it’s from 6.0. I’ve been doing a lot of skin farming lately, so here is a bunch of info about current old skins available. I am only listing the skins that are farmable for level 80 toons. There are other skins inside some of these instances, but they cannot be passed to a level 80 toon because they are inside of ancient/legendary gear boxes. For example, the final boss in Esoterrace drops a box of legendary gear which is the Abyssal skin; it can only be looted by the toon which killed the boss. If you bring in a level 80 toon, it can loot everything else on the boss, just not the equipment box. Rentus Base also drops the old Vasharti gear and weapon skins, but again, they are in a box and are not passable to level 80 toons. How to create a proper group that will allow a level 80 toon to loot the skins: Your “skin farming” toon will be within 10 levels of whichever instance you are farming. For example, if you are farming in an instance where the mobs are level 27, your toon will need to be no higher than level 36. You will need two toons in the group: a level 1 on a separate account and a level 37/45/whatever on your main account. Your level 1 toon should be in the group the entire time, regardless of how much switching you do for other toons to loot. Your level 1 toon can just sit at Ishalgen or wherever. Bring your level 37 (or whatever) toon inside the instance by itself (while in group with the level 1) and kill mobs/beat the instance. Note: If white skins drop on the regular mobs, go to character screen with your level 37 toon -- DO NOT LEAVE GROUP -- and switch to your level 80 toon. The *regular* mob loot despawns within 5 minutes, so you must be very fast on those. Loot it on your level 80 toon and then go back to character screen and switch back to your level 37 toon. Continue the instance. After you kill the final boss in the instance, you will probably have a 15-minute wait period (see notes for each instance below for exceptions) before you can loot on another toon. So kill the boss and then go to character screen -- again, DO NOT LEAVE GROUP -- and switch to your level 80 toon. Bring it inside the instance (the level 1 should still be chilling in group with you) and wait by the boss until it becomes lootable. As a general rule, your level 1 toon should always be in the group from start to finish. Do not ever make it leave or you risk the group falling apart and you being kicked from the instance before you're done looting. ** When you enter lower level instances, such as Haramel or Lower Udas Temple, select “Enter with my squad” or some such phrasing; don’t enter the instance in the solo mode. ** Frostforged Gear Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Wind or Earth Where to get: Haramel, Alquimia Research Center, Kromede’s Trial Level your farming toon needs to be: 6-32 Type of loot: White gear pieces How to get: They are found on both regular mobs and Hamerun, the final boss; see notes at the top of this post on how to loot. Special notes: The mini-boss mob that prowls around outside of the Haramel entrance also drops one piece of this gear, and it is also passable to level 80 toons in the same way, so make sure to kill him before you actually enter the instance. The drop rate is much lower in Alquimia, so I recommend just keeping your toon at level 9 until you’ve collected all the pieces you need from Haramel before ascending to level 10. Malefic Gear and Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Starspark Where to get: Fire Temple, Bakarma Fortress, Taloc’s Hollow, Esoterrace Level your farming toon needs to be: 31-51 Type of loot: White gear pieces How to get: They are found on both regular mobs and bosses; see notes at the top of this post on how to loot. Special notes: FT drops a different, non-Malefic shield, which is called Starspark like the other Malefic gear, but it’s not the Malefic shield. I’m not sure what it is, so I included a picture of it. FT also has a chance to spawn Vile Judge Kromede as the final boss and she drops the old Kromede weapon skins, but several of them are the extendable versions, so they cannot be skinned onto level 80 weapons. FT is the best/fastest/easiest way to farm these Malefic skin pieces. Infinity Shard/Hyperion Gear Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Heartwave or Aegis Where to get: Lower Udas Temple, Rentus Base, Beshmundir Temple, Dragon Lord’s Refuge, Tiamat Stronghold Level your farming toon needs to be: 49-80 (recommend waiting until 52 for Udas Temple because Besh at level 49 is almost impossible) Type of loot: White gear pieces How to get: They are found on both regular mobs and bosses; see notes at the top of this post on how to loot. Special notes: The cloth version is the special songweaver version; does not have the sorc/sm version of cloth. There are both leather versions – regular and special gunner. All pieces are available, including the hats. The mace and shield can also be found. It’s possible the other weapons are around, but I haven’t seen them in about a dozen runs. In Dragon Lord’s Refuge, the skin is on Calindi, not the final chest. (There is technically also one in the chest, but it's not passable to other toons.) Calindi’s loot timer is 15 minutes, so you can finish the instance before you bring in your level 80 toon. Lower Udas Temple is the best/easiest/fastest way to farm these skins. Tiamat Stronghold Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Ancient Drakanfire Where to get: Tiamat Stronghold Level your farming toon needs to be: 71-80 Type of loot: Ancient weapon box How to get: It is found on the boss, Tahabata. They are not passable between characters as they are inside boxes, but you can just run the instances on your level 80 toons since Tahabata is a level 71 mob! Special notes: These DO have the red glow on them! You must actually bring a 2nd toon inside the instance with you. Just holding the group is not enough. For some reason, the weapon box only drops from Tahabata when at least two toons are inside the boss room. Unfortunately, since they are inside weapon boxes, you will get the "best" one for your class. For example, as a chanter, I am given a box with a staff; I don't get to choose a mace or shield instead. Fallen Poeta/Kroban Gear and Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Helio’s Where to get: Open world Lakrum/Demaha, Bastion of Souls, Primeth’s Forge, Stellin Laboratories Level your farming toon needs to be: No level restriction as long as you are strong enough to kill the mobs Type of loot: White gear pieces How to get: They are found on regular mobs; see notes at the top of this post on how to loot. Special notes: They were called Volcanic in 6.x patches. No image of all the weapons together; google "Aion Kroban weapons" for images of them individually from Aion Powerbook. Blood Mark Gear and Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Lakrum Protector Where to get: Yellow/dark blue quests when you first enter the Lakrum map Level your farming toon needs to be: 76-80 Type of loot: Ancient gear How to get: Quest rewards Special notes: The white version shown above is the Lakrum Protector pve gear; the gray version (not pictured here) is the pvp gear. Harvester Gear and Weapon Skins Name of the skins in 7.0: Ancient Nighthaze Where to get: Bastion of Souls, Frozen Monolith Level your farming toon needs to be: 76-80 Type of loot: Ancient gear How to get: They are found on the bosses. They are not passable between characters as they are inside boxes, but you can just run the instances on your level 80 toons. Special notes: None OTHER SKINS YOU GET WHILE LEVELING, BUT NOT PASSABLE TO LEVEL 80 TOONS: - Level 1 starter gear – “Old” – original starter skin - Level 1-9 gear – “Apprentice” – Fabled Kahrun skin – Looks like: https://66.media.tumblr.com/148477c525121e325526c504aa2dfdf3/tumblr_pevjsom1Dg1rjzgqyo2_250.png - Level 10 gear – “Traveler” – Siel’s Forgotten skin – Looks like: https://www.daevasreport.com/images/multimedia/screenshots/3-0_screenshots_armors03.jpg - Level 10 wings (yellow quest) – “Verdict” – Norsvold starter wings (assume Elyos get their Iluma version, but not sure) – Looks like: https://aionpowerbook.com/preview/wings/wing_q04a_1.jpg - Level 10-20 gear – “Verdict” – Ceramium coin skin (white) – Looks different for Elyos and Asmos - Level 20 purple weapons – “Dundis” – same as Verdict - Level 20-40 Gear – “Adjudication” – Ceramium coin skin (purple) – Looks different for Elyos and Asmos - Level 40-55 gear – “Indomitable” – Eternal Kahrun skin – Looks like: http://cmsstatic.aionfreetoplay.com/armor3.jpg - Level 50 purple weapons – “Lakeanimum” – unknown blue/black (similar to Beritra skin, but not quite the same) - Level 50-74 Gear and weapons – “Sunburst” – Danuar Sanctuary skin – Looks like: https://www.daevasreport.com/2013/05/07/aion-4-0-danuar-shalter-gear/ - Level 60 purple weapons – “Roaring Kirrin” – Hyperion skin – Looks like: https://live.staticflickr.com/8690/16989487461_a678e15206_b.jpg

  5. Got hit with weekly renown deduction TWICE within the same hour!

  6. Chaotic Vale is not balanced

    Chaotic Vale is legitimately the worst pvp instance I have ever seen, in any game loooool.
  7. Ultimate Paragon Enchantment Stone Bundle

    They are for the Paragon gear which drops from some of the world bosses. Events.
  8. Skin Farming in 7.0

    @Byebyebuffs-DN Thanks for all of the data! I haven't been playing much this past week due to real life shit, so I haven't had a chance to check it out yet. But much appreciated! <3
  9. Omega Event - Elyos won first round

    Glad I didn't stop playing Journey to log in for that luuuuul
  10. Celestial Weapons?

  11. Ereshkigal Cubics Aion 7.5 Gone

    Tornadoes is key in that room. A bad tornado person will destroy the whole run. The sad truth!
  12. Aion: Shadows Over Balaurea Known Issues

    (Just an fyi, Cheesecake doesn't play Aion anymore, and Cyan doesn't work for NCsoft anymore. Our CMs are Hime and Loki.)
  13. Ereshkigal Cubics Aion 7.5 Gone

    I added two more pdf guides that I had to the video description, for the stay-at-home group and solo sin/ranger path. I don't have a guide for the right path group simply because we've never had to teach anyone to lead that group (always had someone who already knew) lol. But anyway, hope those help you guys. It's still relevant and done by groups because the Prestige weekly quest gives 2 ultimate pve enchantment stones. So yeah, if you don't have Prestige, not a big reason to run it unless you just want the Ereshkigal skill skins for the weapons/armor/wings. They are not sellable though.
  14. Despite there being several videos and text how-to guides out there for how to remove the loading bar on the Aion login screen, so many people still don't know how to do it correctly. Hopefully these detailed screencaps will help you. I highly recommend doing this; your friends will thank you if you sendlog/DC during a pvp/pve instance! A few notes: 1. After a detailed* maintenance, you will get the loading bar again. This is normal, and it will only happen once. (* If it's just a Wednesday maintenance where they didn't really make any changes, you probably won't get the loading screen, but if we get a new event, they make changes, etc, then you will.) 2. Sometimes the file just gets corrupted for some reason, and even though you've done the fix, you have to re-do it. I find that I have to re-do it every 6-8 months. Step 1: Close the Aion client(s) if you're currently logged in. Step 2: Navigate to the folder on your computer where you have Aion installed. If you don't have it installed on an SSD, it will probably be: Step 3: Go into the "data" folder and then go into the "dump" folder. Step 4: Copy the "config" file to your desktop or some other random folder. The reason we are copying it elsewhere (temporarily) is because many computers will prevent you from saving the file after you edit it if it is still in this folder. Step 5: Open this "config" file (on your desktop or wherever you copied it). Step 6: Change ValidTableDump= AND NormalStop= to the number 1 (for both). Step 7: Save the file (still on your desktop or wherever you copied it). Step 8: Cut and paste the file from your desktop back into the folder below. You are REPLACING the existing config file in the "dump" folder with this new one that you just finished editing. Step 9: Right-click on the config file (in your data-dump folder) and click Properties. Step 10: Click the checkbox on "Read-only" under Attributes on the General tab. This step is critical. If you don't set it to read-only, then you will continue to get the loading bar because Aion doesn't "save" your no-loading-bar preference. Step 11: Re-start your Aion client and play the game normally. All done!
  15. Server Lag on Danaria

    Altar of Ascension is one of the worst places where I lag (aside from siege ofc). Idk what it is about that instance, but the server lag in there is terrible.
  16. Ereshkigal Cubics Aion 7.5 Gone

    So many people are even unaware that this instance still exists. I am part of (I believe) the only DN-A group that runs this instance. We run it once per week for the 2 ultimate pve enchantment stones you get from the Prestige quest. We have a mostly static group, but we usually need 1 or 2 extra people per week, and it can honestly be difficult at times because people don't know how to run this instance, don't even know where it is, are afraid to try because of that, etc. Most of us in the group have full Ereshkigal cubics from back in 6.x, and it really helps ESPECIALLY if you're new to the instance. So yeah, since they removed Pandora, they should have added the Ereshkigal cubics as an option in the Qubrinerk's instance.
  17. Weekly Server Maintenance - June 10, 2020

    Meridune and Argon are the two NPCs (one per faction) to whom you turn in your GP season medals to receive the pvp enchantment stones. Which would be cool except none of us are receiving GP season medals lulz.
  18. @Loki, please see info below regarding skill #2 ("Mercenary Charge") not working in the instance Qubrinerk's Monster Cubic Lab. The skill is supposed to deal damage: It DOES work correctly on one "mob" that I've seen, the boss room door. You can see the damage dealt below: However, it only deals 1 damage on the other mobs inside the instance. See examples below of various mobs, including both phases of the boss itself: See also below gifs of the skill being used with only 1 damage: Not a huge deal, but would be nice to get it working correctly if it's an easy fix. Obviously wouldn't take priority over the lag and other more pressing issues.
  19. Screencap Guide for How to Remove the Loading Bar/Screen

    Bump in case anyone needs this. Think we have some returning/new players with the new patch.
  20. Weekly Server Maintenance - June 10, 2020

    I'm gonna need us all to farm the shit out of these mobs or wtfever because I need this motion.
  21. Platinum Cubic Event

    She's trying her very best ok. But yeah, I'm really glad you guys are starting to give us platinum cubics. Thank you. But we need SO MANY MORE. 10 random platinum cubics per week is... nowhere near enough.
  22. Where to farm xp on 7.5?

    I mean I guess if you're decently geared, then you can get an alt to hold your group and enter IDD hard mode. The Young Protector mobs give decent exp, so you can just stay alive and continue to farm them every time they spawn (every 40 seconds). Do your daily Abyssal Splinter also as it gives xp crystals now.
  23. New Store Items in June

    Dragon's Set motionnnnnnn
  24. Skin Farming in 7.0

    Hey guys, pleasepleaseplease keep this topic about skins, not gear/enchanting! Unfortunately, these are actually the Frostforged skins. They are the same design of skin as the Malefic, but they are a blue colorway instead of black, and they do not dye to black correctly.
  25. Did you like 7.5 patch?
