    but he didn't have any cc, or stun

    We have a ton of stuns. Seriously, like half of the chanter skills have a chance to stun, stumble, or knockdown your opponent -- ESPECIALLY once you start getting your Daevanion skills. The only catch is that most of them are dependent upon a critical hit. In order to get crit strike, you need to retune your gear (with kinah) and/or socket crit strike manastones (expensive).

    Sorcerer is more useful in 6v6 than templar:

    I agree with your points (except sleeps are often awoken by your own groupmates), BUT the main problem you didn't list is that it is much, much easier to kill a sorcerer than a templar. So all of those CCs are ultimately useless if the sorcerer keeps dying.

    gamers in Korea like their characters transforming into little silly plushies

    Actually they don't. They've expressed their dislike about it. In fact, that's why in 7.0 all of the transformation *potions* (that you get in open world and at lower levels) are transparent.

    Also, super disappointed in everyone's attitudes. -__-; Gearing up for PVE is a such a ridiculous mix of luck, networking, skill, and time- and yes, often money. So the people who complete VT don't need to act snooty like it's sooo easy peasy for anyone to do, and people who haven't yet shouldn't try to downplay the effort involved. 


  5. If you are in ancient pvp gear, you are still very squishy. So I would recommend someone who can hit very hard. Maybe make some assassin/glad/AT friends. An assassin/chanter combo can be pretty powerful as the amount of stuns between both people is a ton. My boyfriend and I can stunlock a lot of people that way. Or a spiritmaster who is fear-happy to allow you time to heal yourself and your friend. Have fun :)

    Yeah, but transformations are account bound, and unlocking your legendary transformations again on a separate account is garbage. 6.X actively discourages and punishes you for alt accounts.

    Also cubics. I have max cubics on my account, including Ereshkigal, and I definitely don't want to do that again on another account lol.

  7. Hey @DevilNest-KT (or anyone, I guess) -- Have you ever experienced that fast start-up still taking a while? Like, I have two computers with Aion on one of them. My work computer does the fast start-up correctly. However, my home computer -- and obviously the one I use 95% of the time -- has EXACTLY the same "fix" performed on it as my work computer (and as detailed above). Yet, when it loads up, it goes straight to 99% on the progress bar screen and sits at 99% for 3-4 minutes! So it's basically just as long as if the progress bar were to go from 0-100%. Any thoughts? My home computer is much better than my work computer, so that shouldn't be the problem either.

  8. Bless's major downfall was its awful launch day. There were MULTIPLE problems. Full servers. On one server, it was bugged so you couldn't even talk or use your skills; all you could do was run around. The lag was unbearable. Bless failed due to poor management of the TECHNICAL side of things and the servers, not necessarily poor management of the GAMEPLAY/STORY itself.

  9. Hey, here are some tips from someone who is not very good at event instances. As in, it took me five tries to be able to rescue all 10 shugos! I am also a chanter, so may be able to offer a class-specific viewpoint.

    1. Kill the rocks in the very beginning as you are moving. Don't stop at them and waste time. You can use the skills while you move.

    2. When you are in your robot and you encounter a lot of mobs on the pathway -- like when you're at the oil rigs or in the beginning -- first pop your bomb (skill 3), then blast them all with skill 2, then you only need one or two more hits with skill 1. *Make sure you are facing the majority of the mobs when you use skill 2, so you don't waste it because it's a frontal skill.*

    3. When you are killing the mini bosses to get the keys, try to lure them to the edge of the wall/platform. Apparently you can then hop in your robot and 2- or 3-shot the bosses if your character has low dps. Note, I have not actually tried this yet because I just kill the mini-bosses with my skills.

    4. As a chanter, go dps spec stigmas so that you have the AOE linked stigma. It will help a lot when you aggro a lot of mobs while trying to kill the mini-bosses and/or free the shugos. If you have the AOE daevanion skills (might not if it's a new toon), make sure you have those set as well.

    5. After you kill the mini-bosses, click on the name list on the floor. This way, you can see which shugos are the ones you need to rescue, so you don't waste time "freeing" the trick shugos -- which you then have to stop and kill! *This helped me a lot with saving time!*

    6. If you have Blessing of Wind stigma, make sure you have it socketed! It really boosts chanter dps; it's a very OP skill!

    7. Be sure to use your 4k skill, Winter Circle, on the last boss. It's a very powerful skill and will help you kill the boss twice as fast!

    8. Remember that killing the last boss is the most important part. If you don't kill him, you won't get ANY rewards at all! So even if you can only manage to save 5 shugos, that's fine! Just go on ahead to kill the rest of the oil rigs and then kill the last boss.

    Lastly, here is a video of it. You've probably already watched one, but just in case. Hopefully some of these tips will help you. :x

    Eastern Gothic was given out as contest rewards years ago.  As one of the few (only active??) players to have it I have to say it is waaaay past time to add it to events or the BCM.

    • Eastern Gothic [item: 110901131]
    • Eastern Hairpin [item: 125045671]


    I'm curious about the dying of this outfit. Does it change the purple or red part when you dye it? (Or is it even dyeable?)

    Sorry, don't want to derail the thread. SOOOO TO ADD TO ITTTTTT... I would love to see this on the BCM. Item 110905204

    I dare you do this event on lakrum gear than tell me how event feels like.Is an event for geared ones..so smart..i thought an event helps decrease diffrence level of gear, transformations etc between players..seem i am wrong. Me bad.Take time out if bosses are so imposibble for ungeared ones..

    You can finish it in crap gear. You just won't get all the shugos. 

    EDIT: Maybe not in Lakrum gear, but in at least CoE gear.


    As additional info, here is some info I discovered by doing the event instance three times. I didn't watch a video or anything because, quite frankly, the rewards aren't worth a lot of effort, so I just yoloed it.

    Run 1:
    - Killed all 3 oil rigs
    - Rescued 0 shugos
    - Killed last boss
    Got 10 reels

    Run 2:
    - Killed all 3 oil rigs
    - Rescued 7 shugos
    - Did not kill last boss
    Got 0 reels (!!)

    Run 3:
    - Killed all 3 oil rigs
    - Rescued 5 shugos
    - Killed last boss
    Got 75 reels

    As you can see, it is ultimately useless to do the oil rigs or shugos if you don't kill the last boss. So make sure you leave yourself enough time to kill the last boss. Personally, I found the bosses to be quite easy to kill on my main, but I am in half red gear with a legendary transform. That said, I struggled with being a fattie and aggroing too many mobs while rescuing the shugos which delayed me -- and also with rescuing the trick shugos that would then turn into mobs I had to stop and kill. Lots of yanks and pulls from these mobs too, so a bit difficult to just train them around. One of them slept me for like 10 seconds, and it wasn't pot-able. If you play a class with a lot of aoe skills, it will go a lot faster. Someone mentioned they were able to lure the mini-bosses to the edge and then hop in their robot to kill them that way, so that might be something to look into if you're struggling with the mini-bosses.

    I think it would be a semi-easy event to do by watching a video or practicing enough times. Personally, with 3 legendary transforms and at least half red gear on my two most-played toons, the rewards are not enough to try too often -- and that's what I find kind of odd about this event. It is clearly aimed at lesser-geared players with the ancient transform being the top reward and purple accessories being a "major" reward as well. However, it would be a bit challenging in CoE gear to free all of the shugos.

    Anyway, just some thoughts from someone who isn't too good at event instances. :x

    I think abandoning them will not stop you from getting them only completing them will.  I got the pvp one before reset today and finished it and after reset I got it again so the pvp one is definately a daily now.  They are labeled wrong still but before reset only one I got was the pvp one. Once you zone back into Lakrum by abandoning them you just gonna get them again cause not done

    Gotcha. I will try completing them later today and see if they come back correctly after that.

    • The GP quests in Lakrum that were added on 4/24 have had their Daily/Weekly resets swapped. All other aspects of the quest remain the same.

    @Cyan The camp quests are still daily and the 10 kills quest is still weekly. I abandoned the quests and relogged to see if that would fix it, but they came back up the same way.



  14. Items that people might not know what they look like:

    Emotes - Rainbow Float and Bluebird Bob: 


    Emote - Summer Vacation:


    Not sure what the Crated Fortress Runner mount is. It might be the one below as that's the only one in Aion Powerbook that has "Runner" in the name, but I don't know.


    Sunseeker's Outfit:

    theres nothing to even kill to complete the quest in a timely manner....

    - Go to opposite faction's kibrium farm. You will likely die, but should get a couple kills of afk people before you do, so still worth it. A bit unsavory, but low population in the game, so gotta do what you gotta do. I personally don't hold it against Elyos when they come kill the Asmo kibrium farm because I know they're just completing pvp quests.

    - Go to opposite faction's botting area(s) and kill bots. You're an Elyos, so you might check the Asmo side of the map near Lake of Records. Get some bots over there. Also, Asmo bots like the cave area up by Asmo FM.

    - If you have decent gear, go to linked lfg locations for opposite faction, intentionally looking for a fight.

    - If you have friends, group up with them so that you can survive easier when you come across groups of the opposite faction.

    I usually complete my pink pvp quest on the first or second day of the week. Just gotta look for people.

  16. One other possibility -- and what HAS happened within the past year, and we have proof of it on these forums -- is someone else who is sharing an IP with you might have been hacking. So your IP was banned, including you.


    banning my IP address preventing me and many others at my institute from accessing Aion and other NCsoft games

    Source thread:

    As you can see, it has happened before. One person got banned, and everyone at his university got banned too.

    Does anyone who plays Aion share an IP with you? Could this be a possibility?
