    Which cubic u mean?

    I could be wrong, but I believe they are referring to the PFHM-specific cubics that you obtain from Qubrinerk's instance. Although I am not sure which event they are referring. Perhaps one that Korea got?

    You can look up gear now in game. That is one of the many changes and one of the helpful ones.

    It is very useful for new and old players alike. Here is how you get to it and how it works:

    Press P so you're viewing your character's profile, then click Guide:

    Once you're there, it will have two tabs -- PVE and PVP. The gears are listed in order of best to worst from top to bottom. (So best possible item of that class is listed on top.)

    If you hover over a piece of gear, it will show you its stats so you can compare it to the gear you are currently wearing.

    Lastly, if you click on a piece of gear, it will tell you where/how to get it via a blue quest marker on the map (bottom right corner of map below):

    I am, even in just normal groups I am having this issue, thanks!

    @Hellish-DN and I experimented with this quest yesterday. As you said, it used to be that just PARTICIPATING in pvp (like the quest says) would get you credit. Now, you have to actually get the last hit on the person. Not necessarily the kill "credit," but the literal last hit. We would get kill credit on some kills (it would update other pvp quests), but it would not update that quest because someone else got the last hit.

    Not sure if this is broken or was an intended change, but it sucks. Makes it damn near impossible to finish that weekly lugbug quest.


  4. @Hellish-DN and I have kind of experimented with what each siege requires for credit because we like sleeping at a decent hour.

    Divine: You need at least 10k AP. Usually helping kill at least one gate and then killing 1-2 of the opposite faction will get you this. Just killing one gate is not enough. We've done this before without killing any Elyos and we did not get credit. Killing two gates would probably be enough if you get there fast enough.

    Demaha: Same as above.

    Lakrum: This one seems to be a little stricter about the AP required. We used to just kill one gate and that was enough, but with the 7.3 update, we also have to get AP from 5-10 Elyos kills as well. Just attacking the deity with no gate/pvp credit will NOT be enough to get siege credit most of the time unless you were there from the very start of the deity. Coming in when the deity is already at like 40% will probably not get you any credit unless you find some pvp action too. For defensive siege, we pretty much have to be active and killing Elyos for at least 10 minutes.

    Note, it is possible to do all of this solo. I am a very support-style chanter; I don't 1v1 or help kill very often. It's usually Hellish doing all of the attacking while I'm healing. So if you're by yourself, just try to stay back with all the white names and pick off the opposite faction. Don't throw yourself into the sea of red and expect good results.


  5. The main way people are getting skillbooks now is through the daevanion marks that are given out as a reward in instances IDD, PF (not hard mode), SLEZ, SLNM, and Beni Estate. If you complete the instance in a certain amount of time (most groups do), then you get 1 daevanion mark (2 in SLNM). So just by running your normal pve instance cooldowns, you can get at least 1 skillbook per week that way or 2-4 if you are decently geared.

    Prestige:

    5 x PFNM
    2 x IDD
    5 x SLEZ
    10 x SLNM
    3 x Beni EZ
    6 x Beni NM (although I'm not sure anyone has successfully beaten this yet)

    So theoretically, you could get a max of 31 marks this way -- or 5 books. But realistically, it's like 2-3 per week if you're decently geared.


  6. I still can't even believe that the temporary cabinets were never added back. Fortunately, I knew they were going away with the 6.0 update, so I had removed my items from my temporary cabinets. But I feel bad for people who have old/valuable items in cabinets that they cannot open any longer.

    i tried changing the aion.bin to bin.old

    It should be aion.bin.old, not just bin.old.

    So try that again and see if it works. If not, check to make sure your graphics card drivers are up to date. Sometimes I'll get a gray screen if my graphics card drivers need to be updated.

    I  found this https://support.aiononline.com/hc/en-us/articles/360038372332-Token-based-Restoration-Policy-FAQ . I wonder where do I see my restoration tokens? How do they arrive? It was launched 2 months ago but I never saw them. 

    So, if I have a restoration token, it won't let me unbind a thing as you say??? Pfffftt! :(

    You get 2 on January 1st and then 2 more on July 1st. They don't stack, so if you don't use the 2 from January, you lose them. There is nowhere that shows you have them. I've already used both of mine for minion restoration.

    My boyfriend attempted to use one of his restoration tokens to unbind his Ultimate Noble Soldusk Necklace and was told by support that they would not use a restoration token for this request.

    @Arhangelos-KT, he also attempted to use a restoration token to re-box an opened legendary contract OR undo a combination of two legendary contracts and was told they won't do either of those things either. (You were wondering about that.)

    BTW the system of submitting restoration requests doesn't seem to work to me. The abovementioned page says, Any other restoration request can be submitted here. https://support.aiononline.com/hc/en-us/signin?return_to=https%3A%2F%2Fsupport.aiononline.com%2Fhc%2Fen-us%2Frequests%2Fnew%3Fticket_form_id%3D360000668391

    I open this page and it disappears in a few seconds throwing me to my account page. Why? 

    You can make a restoration request directly to their email at support@aiononline.com. Just explain what you want done and say that you want to use one/both of your restoration tokens for the request.

    But minion combine is not an enchant. I mean minion combine sounds similar to transformation combine.

    Good point! Well, if you decide to try a restore on transforms, let us know what they say.

    I am just wondering if now is a good time to come back to the game?

    Anytime is a good time to come back if you are a calm-minded person who doesn't mind shaking your head at the stupid shit that is becoming more prevalent in Aion. If you rage easily, then no, don't come back.

    but I am willing to put in the effort to get pvp gear

    Getting good pvp gear is easier now than it was in 6.x and 7.0. Now you can farm ultimate blood marks in Crimson Katalam (cross server pvpve map) and buy the second best pvp gear in the game outright instead of having to enchant the Dark Talon (best gear) from ancient > legendary > ultimate. It's a good shortcut for new/returning players.

    Have the events gotten better?

    We have events almost every week now. The usual rotation is something like t.rash event > good event > t.rash event > ok event > good event.

    What's the highlight of the current patch?

    Uhhh... lol? Idk, there are a lot of various types of pve instances currently. Also, we can pvp in Crimson Katalam. Having three sieges occurring at the same time adds a different dynamic to things on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Some hate it, some like it, but either way, it's different. There is always something to do.

    Are the servers active?

    KT is a bit more active than DN. You can usually form groups on both servers. Keep in mind that Aion is a slowly dying game, so population continues to decrease each year.

    but here in the forum has been mentioned before that the new NVidia drivers arent friendly with the game

    The newest Nvidia drivers ARE now compatible with Aion (can personally confirm), so that should not be the issue anymore.


  12. I can't remember exactly where they are, but I know they're on one of the walls. The quest marker on the map doesn't exactly match up to where they are either. So look on the walls. The quest is not broken; I've completed it on more than one character, most recently about two weeks ago.

    Isn't it wiser to use it for something more important?

    I guess it depends on what you think is important. (No snark there; different people prioritize different things.) However, you will get 2 more tokens on July 1st, so if you don't use your 2 right now before then, you'll effectively lose them. The tokens do not carry over.

    Can I use the restoration thing for transform failed combine for example?

    It does not appear that you can. The listed categories eligible for restore are consumed items, item reboxing, failed enchanting, and transferring items.
