  1. There is a nice thread here on the forums about farming skins in 6.0, but much of the info is outdated since it’s from 6.0.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:

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
    5. 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.
    6. 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

    XgB8Icf.jpg ps7qk3H.jpg BCo9hAM.jpg 8B5ly6J.jpg 

    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

    So we have gone another full month and still haven't been compensated correctly for the previous season

    A legionmate was governor on DN-A last month, and he just received his compensation ulti stones a few days ago. But most of us haven't received any compensation, and there's nothing about it here on the forums from Cyan. It's kind of weird.

    Can we at least know if it is going to cost BCcoin? or did you already answer this and i just missed the answer?

    This is the only thing we've seen about it:

    the item required for the recipe being added to the Black Cloud Marketplace in a future update.


    So while it's possible that it will cost 0 BCC, it's pretty unlikely. I guess we'll see.

    Apparently, the conquering legion in Lakrum gets to purchase Legendary Enchantment Stones from a vendor inside.

    They are not guaranteed legendary stones. They are enchantment stone bags that have a CHANCE to be legendary. They cost 200 legion coins for one stone. The rate of getting a legendary is about the same as the chance of a legendary from a bag in ID/Dredge/etc.

    Why put all these kisks on a teleport that will have no influence on the siege ?

    It's just boredom. At the same time as Ele's screenshots were taken, our side (Asmodian) had kisks all over our teleport too. All in good fun since, as you say, it doesn't really hurt anything.

    So it's really a trade-off, isn't it?

    Asmos' camp from the point where Anomos spawns is just a hill, while Elyos' camp from the point Anomos spawns is a bit weird. You have to walk a distance then turn him around, which leaves plenty of time for Asmos to get him back.

    Exactly. There are these trade-offs in other places as well. For example, Asmos can only farm one ancient kibrium boss at a time without moving while the Elyos side has two very close to each other. Also, Elyos can glide right into the entry for their PF (old FM) while Asmos have to run all the way to theirs, risking death by Elyos. So again, trade-offs exist in several different aspects of the game and they vary in whose favor they land.

    And let's be honest, current events are garbage to spend money on if you want Kaisinel. I'm not sure what he was thinking. Maybe he believed in the chat trolls? Because people were trolling him to buy more and he kept buying!

    That's my thought as well. Shugo Sweep and the Upgrade Arcade aren't great transformation events. Shugo Emperor and Flower Farm were much better for transforms.

    Yeah... P2W is real. There is a Vandal on KT that was already in full T2 Ult and full stigmas +9 one week ago! I'm sitting on full legendary +4/6 and weapon and boots on ultimate on my Vandal and I'm yet to level my 6th stigma to +9 as it keeps failing at +8 back to +7... lol!

    Was pretty cringey to watch him throw $3,000 at the current events for Kaisinel and not get it. y i k e s
