  1. Professions Getting Buffed??

    I would love for this to happen, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. They'll probably nerf aetherforging to be easier to level, but I doubt they'll touch the old crafts. I hope I'm wrong though!
  2. Returning Player Have Questions

    2. It depends upon which types of manastones you are looking to socket. For the archdaeva stones (power, precision, knowledge, etc), you can get low level ones from basically all group instances, but those +1, +2, etc are just trash. Anything below +6 is trash tbh. Do your weekly Lunas as doing them for seven weeks will grant you 90 of the +6 manastones in whichever category you want. You can also get +6 or higher sometimes from the boxes in Cradle of Eternity (although your level/gear may not be high/good enough to run that instance yet). Also, you can get a few from doing the solo instance Crucible Spire which you access from Marchutan/Kaisinel. That's archdaeva stones, broadly. For composite stones, aside from the aforementioned broker, you can get those from some of the older instances, such as Linkgate Foundry. 3. I'm not sure what you are asking. Do you mean you are looking to run a solo instance that will get you new gear? If so, there is no such instance. The top three gear "brands" these days are Harvester (1st place) and Apollon and Sophisticated Frigida (tied for 2nd place, depending on your class and the individual gear piece). Aside from outright buying these on the broker, they are dropped from Bastion of Souls (Harvester), Cradle of Eternity and Trials of Eternity (Apollon), and Pandaemonium/Sanctum Defense on Sundays (Sophisticated Frigida). Sophisticated gear is a very rare drop from Panda/Sanctum Defense, and that instance will be going away very soon. So that gear is pretty much obsolete, despite its good stats. Harvester is obviously the best, but you will not have the level or gear to run that instance yet, so you could only get it by purchasing it outright or getting lucky in events. Apollon is very viable to get by playing in-game; make sure you're getting the upgraded Apollon -- it would have conditioning and manastone slots. The basic Apollon cannot be conditioned and manastoned. Cradle of Eternity is runable from around level 71 or higher. You can sometimes run it at a lower level if the group is willing to carry you. Note, most of these groups will be advertised as "2 boss." You can still get the gear from 2 boss. The third boss drops more gear, weapons, and sometimes the wings. Most "all 3 bosses" groups will be level 73+. 4. Meh. Not really. I mean yes and no. The mythic AC gear might be better than what you have since I'm not sure what you have. However, it's not that much better than the free gear you get at level 55 now. (I'm aware you won't have that gear since you're returning.) That said, you need a lot of ancient coins to buy a full set of the mythic AC gear, and by the time you farm all of that, you will be able to run Cradle of Eternity and get Apollon which is much better. Most of us use the ancient coins for consumables, crafting designs, soul unbinding stones, etc. If you have absolute crap gear right now, you might just run a couple of Archives of Eternity and get that gear as a very temporary measure; it's called Labyrinth gear. Note, you will only have this gear for a few days most likely as it is NOT gear that you will want to keep. It would only be intended to carry you through your level 60s until you can get the Apollon gear (or Harvester). It's also purchase-able on the broker for crazy cheap. tl;dr: Tell us what your current gear is and then we can better assess what you need to be focusing on.
  3. NEXT AION 2018.1.17

    We already have that Wejabobo or whatever his name is who "guides" us on the campaign quests that take us through the Tower of Eternity stuff. Aion may be planning to develop him further (or something like him).
  4. Fire form Fail - Arena

    Using transform in Arena is just embarrassing tbh. Like you really can't stand to lose THAT MUCH? You're basically saying, "I am not good enough to win via skills or gear, but I cannot bear to lose gracefully, so I'm going to let this OP transform carry me." I'd be too embarrassed to do that lol. Whatever though, different strokes for different folks.
  5. Chieftain Manumumu help!!

    Here you go: http://aiondatabase.net/us/npc/210598/ Look at the purple flags. For future reference, that site has maps for most of the NPCs.
  6. true gossip?

    Yeah, there's really no need for you to be stirring the pot.....
  7. Chanters don't need mana help lol. But seriously, yes, there are a few support songweavers out there -- the BG of my legion is a good one -- but they are rare. Most songweavers will not ever help heal. And that's totally fine. But they should not have the shortest cast speed resurrection.
  8. Black cloud Market

    It happens to several of us every now and then. It has happened to me once or twice. I just wait until the next day and it usually fixes itself. Not a great solution, I know, but worth a try since support is slow during the holidays.
  9. Increase songweaver's resurrection skill from 3s cast time to 6s -- just like clerics and chanters. OR reduce cleric/chanter resurrection cast time to 3s to match songweavers. There's no reason a songweaver should have a shorter res time than the two ACTUAL support classes, especially considering most songweavers have no desire to resurrect someone because they'd rather just afk 1,2,3 the whole time. Turn archdaeva skills into regular skills if we're going to be losing the CP system -- or, at the very least, turn them into acquirable stigmas. i.e., please don't make me lose group Protection Ward. T___T Increase the amount of HP restored to a few of the cleric's skills. Restoring 1k HP when everyone has a minimum of 20k HP these days is just insane. It made sense years ago, but not now. Give chanters a dispel skill. P L E A S E. Like 3min cd, I don't care, just SOMEthing. Any other ideas I have would be too unfair if I'm being honest hahaha.
  10. Why all 2h physical weapons are bad dps ?

    Agreed completely. Also, another problem with Word of Inspiration is that it only lasts 15 seconds. So you're having to constantly spam it, thus taking away from your personal dps. I honestly think Inspiration is a waste unless they change it to last longer than 15 seconds. Idk, it's all opinions, of course, and everyone's opinion is valid; I just much prefer having Instigation all the time. This is what I bring to the group in end-game instances -- what makes my spot just as valid as someone with higher dps. Instigation, Blessing of Stone, and Healing Burst are pretty much always in my toolkit unless I'm going solo in Crucible Spire.

    I ship it.
  12. Pocket healers?

    Insult us because we love that sort of thing and we'll come running.
  13. Why all 2h physical weapons are bad dps ?

    You obviously don't run pugs lmao. There are still many, many clerics who struggle to even heal Adma/Theo.
  14. Also, you might search just the generic term "stigma" on the broker as you can sometimes find class-specific stigma bundles for cheaper than the actual listed Healing Burst or Blessing of Stone. Good luck!
  15. Fake snowball~

    Whyyyy are people so disgusting... smh.
  16. Weekly Server Maintenance - December 20, 2017

    You told someone to "get bent" though... lol.
  17. NEXT AION 2018.1.17

    B-but.... But.... I finally got enough CP for my archdaeva shield...
  18. Weekly Server Maintenance - December 20, 2017

    I bought my skating motion. Now I have to suffer through a day of work so I can get home to actually see it lol. *o*
  19. Real Life Picture Thread

    @Larxe-KT I just want to say that you are crazy beautiful! Aaaaaaaa *o*
  20. Exact same thing happened to me. I did the same as you -- asked for the kinah back, reset my wings back to +13, and not refund my omega. Answer was no. That said, I have a monthly subscription AND I usually buy about $20 worth of ncoin every month. So I spend about $35 a month on Aion. Not nearly as much as some people, of course, but I'm not a free player either. So your friend just got lucky, and honestly, he was probably being super freaking annoying with his emails and they just wanted to get rid of him. In the end, someone has to keep this game alive. Let your friend be that dude, and let him have his silly ncoin. I understand you're frustrated that they didn't give you what you asked to receive, but that is true of any customer service. Depending on the manager/supervisor you get when there is a problem, you might get a small gift card or you might get nothing. If a waiter spills food on me, I might get my meal comped or I might just get a "hey sorry." That's just life. People are only human, not robots; they don't all behave in the same manner.
  21. My Aion Crafts

    I love the red pillow!
  22. Cradle of Eternity Ranger Guide ?

    It depends on your cleric. I run 3-boss with my legion often and I have supported (on my 74 chanter) our one (level 75) cleric without issue. A friend of mine is a level 71 cleric, but also very good and can be supported just by me on my chanter without much problems. Again, it just depends on the cleric. Regarding the eye boss, my recommendation to bring a chanter was based on the fact that your ranger is getting one-shotted and does not have PVE gear yet or high enough HP. Once he has proper PVE gear and higher HP (from both the gear and leveling up), he should be fine.
  23. Cradle of Eternity Ranger Guide ?

    Aly has a lot of great suggestions. Also, while he is working on his PVE gear, you might try to grab a (good/decent) chanter to run with you guys. That way, your ranger friend will get Blessing of Stone (thus raising his HP) and the chanter can throw down a shield each time the four corner eyes pop up to help him/all of you survive that part.
  24. The "Filthy Casuals" of Aion

    I.... I would actually LOVE that. But I'd hate to impose on you like that.
