  1. People like to come at you with small d!ck energy and the usual THIS IS A PVPVE GAME JUST PLAY SOMETHING ELSE and it's honestly just such an egotistically "I'm more superior than you" answer. That said, Aion is very heavy on the pvp, so I'm not sure how much you can enjoy it before getting killed in open world. I do understand though because as I get older, I also wonder if my mentality has outgrown this sort of game. I no longer find it amusing killing people who are gathering or killing low level quest mobs. I prefer instanced pvp, like Idgel Dome, etc where EVERYONE is there intentionally and WANTS to be a part of the pvp. Anyway, I digress.

    Here are some things you might try when you feel like you're being killed in pvp and it's starting to upset you:

    1. Work on quests in other areas (no brainer) -- if a message pops up on a map that the other faction now has a rift, just leave the map

    2. If you like collecting titles (one of my favorite Aion things), google the directions/quest(s) for one of the titles you don't have yet. Here is a list of the titles available in Classic: https://www.reddit.com/r/aion/comments/oljpt6/aion_classic_list_of_all_asmodian_titles_in_order/

    3. Work on your crafting (until it becomes too boring)

    4. Run all the way to an area of a map which you haven't been to or have barely seen and just explore it

    5. Preview all of the gear on the broker and see if there are any cheap sets you'd like to buy for skins and re-skin your gear, even if it's only temporary gear!

    6. Look for low level quests in the maps (by talking to NPCs if you no longer see the quests on them) and do them just for the storyline

    I rolled an Elyos Sorc on IS today to see what it was like,   it's fine, plenty of people on

     

    I was going to say something very mean here, but fortunately, I thought better of it. I will simply say that you are deliberately being obtuse as you know VERY WELL (because you are on the forums more often than I am, and looking at my post count, that's really saying something!) that IS-E has a much better population than IS-A. This post is about IS-A. So as Kubei said, if you just want to be deliberately obtuse, just stay out of the post. Jfc.

    Enough people have commented on how completely bogus it is for us to be losing our names. I don't care if someone with an alt has signed in during the last year- NO one is actively maining our names. Haniya, Aelar, Bjorn, etc- there's no KT equivalent and you all nyerking know it.

    👏👏👏

    There is a Hellish-KT who, according to MyAion, has not done literally a single thing within the past couple years. So Hellish will lose his name that he has ACTIVELY mained for 5+ years to some alt who has never actually done anything in game. But hey, whatever is fair for KT, right? 🤷‍♀️

    If I kept playing in Israphel, I would be Level 50 by now and maybe bored out of my mind, but instead, I'm farming my Kromeda weapon with a LFG packed with players doing the same. I do not regret at all, even if I'm not able to be one of the "top players", because, in the end of the day, I'm enjoying what I'm doing.

    Gotta say I agree. I'm only level 38 now because I rerolled, and I have basically no AP to speak of, so I'm going to be very behind in pvp gear. Still, it's a more enjoyable use of my time now. I'm a grown adult with a full-time career, like many people here, and this is a video game that is supposed to be fun to play in my free time. I'm not going to struggle to even level up because this isn't real life. I shouldn't have to struggle like that. People can call it "quitting" or "adding to the problem" or whatever they want, but games are supposed to be fun. 🤷‍♀️

    That tough pink tiger candy is not every pay to win. It gives garbage boosts. The amount of cast speed is so minuscule, the kill times of each monster only decreases by 2 seconds. 

    Oh no. Are you actually using the candy? That's not what the "p2w candy" thing was about lol. You can SELL the candies to the vendor for 100k kinah each. So you can buy tons of candy with real money to get tons of kinah in game. THAT'S what people were talking about. No one actually uses the candies unless they're endgame and loaded with kinah already lol.

    i just want you guys to acknowledge the issue and tell us you guys are working on it. just seems like you guys are just ignoring the issue. 

    It HAS been acknowledged. However, it will probably take them a while to fix it. It always takes them a while to fix problems. 😔 Hopefully they prove me wrong though.

    Sending the team this thread to make sure they’re aware. Will update if I’m told there’s anything to share, but it also seems this issue is resolving for some.

    Ok. Keep the cameras on. In 10 years of this game i dont think i have ever seen anyone hack. Bot sure. But not hack.

    Ooooooof. No animation hacking is probably the most common type of hacking in this game. I'm honestly baffled at how you have never experienced it? Or maybe you just don't know you have? (Not saying that in a snotty way; your ping might be high so it might not be that noticeable to you.) It's EXTREMELY common, especially on live servers.

  8. I probably look like a bot while I'm gathering, but that's because I'm actually working, and I just tab back in around the appropriate time that it should respawn and start to gather. If someone is standing around me, I almost never notice them. I stay by the same node; I don't move from node to node as that requires too much effort on my part (again, working). Downside: I die to Elyos a lot because I'm not paying attention to the game except for a few seconds every 4-5 minutes lol.

    5. Later on, a few hours I believe, Kibbelz stated that the rewards being shown were actually incorrect.

    Did a check to make sure I'm being factual. The issue wasn't acknowledged until 1.5 hours after reset, and even then, it wasn't known that the rewards were wrong. The rewards were not noted as being wrong by Kibbelz until 3 hours after reset.

    Initial notice that there is a known issue; no note about rewards being wrong:

    On 7/21/2021 at 11:29 AM, Kibbelz said:

    We're investigating this. Please be sure to check mail as that is where rewards are supposed to be delivered (not to inventory) to help identify if this is an issue for some users or all.

    Clarification that rewards were being shown incorrectly:

    So sorry because it still makes little sense, when they purchased the Daeva Pass with the good items shown... didn't the items get into their inventory or something? Or do you buy it but still need to unlock it somehow like the normal one?

    Correct.

    Here is how it works:

    1. Open the Daeva Pass tab and it shows you all of the rewards from start to finish, including the Premium ($30) rewards. You can decide at this point if it's worth buying.

    2. Once you unlock that level (both free and Premium), you must click Receive All in order to actually have the rewards for that level show up in your inventory.

    Now that is how it is supposed to work. Here is what actually happened yesterday for those of us who purchased it right after daily reset:

    1. Purchased the Premium pass.

    2. Completed the first couple levels (easy to do in half an hour of gameplay).

    3. Clicked Receive All, but nothing showed up in our inventories.

    4. It was clear at that time that it was broken, but there was NOTHING said that the rewards were wrong. Kibbelz simply stated that it was being looked into. We did NOT know at that early time that the rewards were incorrect. Again, we purchased based upon what we saw. We just assumed that it being broken meant that the rewards weren't being delivered, but that they would later. That would be fine -- IF they were the rewards being shown. However, they were not. See below #5.

    5. Later on, a few hours I believe, Kibbelz stated that the rewards being shown were actually incorrect.

    As you can see, NCsoft is at fault here. Honestly, I'm not bothered by it, so it doesn't really affect me. But I'm trying to see it from the viewpoint of those who purchased based upon the fact that they wanted coins or whatever the case may be. However, they didn't get those items. They deserve to at least have the Quna go back into their inventory to spend on something else. NCsoft isn't losing money this way, and the player can buy something else they want.

    I'm just updating this for future reference...It took 31 minutes to get to the character screen, then another 4 minutes. So it seems it takes about 35 minutes after reset to be able to log in. 

    Correct. If you are logged in, that is the same amount of time it takes for items to start showing up in your inventory, mailbox/broker to start working, etc.

  12. It seems to be a daily occurrence at reset (9:00am server time). If you are not logged in already, you cannot for 20-30 minutes. If you are logged in, nothing looted/gathered will show up in your inventory and the broker doesn't work for 20-30 minutes.
