    The white equip drops 'Squall' from Fire Temple and Bakarma are Frostforged, same goes for the 'Tempest' from Taloc's Halow. The actual Maleficient gear is from the equipment chests which level 80's cannot access to.

    I cannot seem to find the 'Starspark' gear all I ever see is 'Squall'?

    Yeah, as I mentioned yesterday, it seems they've removed the white Malefic gear drops. Unfortunately!

    can't you have a level 80 in Account A waiting in group outside the entrance while a level 32 in Account B runs in the instance to get the skins?

    Unfortunately, no. I did test this. If there is a character *in the group* that is over 10 levels above the mobs in the instance, you will not get any loot from any of the mobs -- even if that level 80 character is outside of the instance. That said, your group holder doesn't have to be level 1. It can be within 10 levels of the mobs. I just said level 1 because it's obviously very easy to make a level 1 character, and that level 1 won't out-level any of the instances, including Haramel.

    Frostforge is the malefic set though and I have seen it.

    No. The Frostforged armor is a blue version of the original black Malefic skin. @Iamloveshaft-KT is referring to the actual Malefic skin -- the black version.

    Wow thank you, just the thing I was looking for. I need that Malefic Hauberk skin which I lost a while ago.

    Well, it seems Aion MIGHT have removed the Malefic drops. See the post a few above yours:

    does the malefic still drop? ive been running ft with 2 differenct alts the last 3 days doing full clears and only get the frostforged skins havent seen any malefic at all. just the skin that drops in the gold kromede chest but as you said thats unlootable for mains


    Note, I have not confirmed this myself. I haven't had a chance to run any FT, Bakarma Fortress, etc to see if I get any Starspark (Malefic).

    So you are saying it was Professor Plum in the library with the candlestick!


    I wasn't aware we were playing Clue. 

    I like that his hair is sticking up like a flame and he also used a candlestick to bludgeon someone to death. The clue was in his appearance all along!

  6. You and I rarely agree, Arhangelos, but we definitely do here. 7.5 gives me the same bad vibes that I was feeling back in 5.8 when 6.0 was on the horizon. The only thing in your analysis that made me perk up in semi-happiness is that they're reviving Esoterrace -- but that's only because I want that skin, and they'll probably end up removing that skin from the instance.

    I actually like the Lakrum map quite a lot. It's easy to get around, and back in 6.2, open world pvp was pretty easy to find. I don't like the Demaha map because it's so time-consuming to get to places, so I won't be sad to see its usage lessened.

    Silentera Canyon... ehh, I'll have to wait and see. They may re-design it a bit so that it's easier to get to and navigate through, not sure.

    (p.s. someone told me at the moment silentera is part of the leveling campaigns or something)

    Yes. It is the last yellow quest in Gelk/Ing before you move onto Enshar/Cygnea.

    Wow are you clairvoyant?  If so what is the next big game so I can invest in it.

    Or just an opinion thats how long you may play for?

    Observation based on the past three years -- server merges, how long it takes us to get updates, number of people still playing, etc.

    But sure, go off. 9_9

    Hm really? That's too bad. I guess they changed it. That sucks a lot. :(

    Kr google  translations seem very very happy right now with the infinite gear.

    Could you share a little more info with us? Does it seem like they're happy with it because they can enchant infinitely and be OP? (Despite the fact that this is about to be changed.) Or is it because they like the challenge of the new patch? Or something else? Sorry, just curious if you mean they're ONLY happy with that gear or the patch overall.

  10. I'll answer your question about if the Prestige pass is really worth purchasing.

    Welcome back to the game. Aion is in its last year or two of life, so keep that in mind with everything I'm about to say.


    There are some decent PVE instances in this patch. Some are pretty basic, and others are complicated and interesting. Prestige Pass will gain you an extra entry into each of the PVE instances and it will also give you a buff that gives you 400 PVE attack. The PVE flows in a very sensible manner. You start out in BoS/FM to get your baby gear then move onto PF easy mode and IDD, then to SL easy mode, then finally to SL normal mode and PF hard mode. (There is also VT, but only a few groups still do that for Prestige ulti stone quest.) There is also Herelym Mine for AP. It can be a bit tough to gear up in PVE sometimes because gear for your class might not drop. As a cleric, you will have an advantage because you won't ever have roll competition on the armor. If a piece drops, it's yours. Granted, you will have roll competition on magic accessories. There is not really any p2w in the PVE aspect of the game.


    Ehh. Things are a bit bleak, to be honest. There is a huge gear gap, worse than we've ever seen before. I have average PVP gear -- half T2 ultimate and half T2 legendary. I am either getting absolutely deleted by other players or I'm the one two-shotting someone else. There is no in between. You're either severely outgeared by people who have full +15 T2 ultimate gear or you completely outgear your opponent who is still in T2 ancient gear. It makes for pretty un-fun PVP encounters. Open world PVP is pretty much dead. It was fairly active back in 6.x because we were all sequestered onto one map. However, now people are spread out between Lakrum and Demaha maps, so it's hard to find open world PVP encounters. For instanced PVP, there's ID, Dredge, IB, arenas, and KBF. Prestige Pass will gain you an extra entry into each of the PVP instances. These instances all give you materials needed to upgrade your PVP gear, so the extra entries are useful. There is also siege every day. Prestige Pass will give you extra GP which helps you achieve a higher season rank, thus awarding you more PVP enchantment stones at the end of it.

    So would I say Prestige Pass is worth it? Honestly, my answer changes from month to month. Right now, I'm feeling pretty apathetic about it because one of our PVP instances, Evergale Canyon, has been broken for 3 months. Yes, literal months. NCsoft can't seem to fix it -- or doesn't care to fix it since this is Aion and not Blade & Soul. So there are many things in the game that just go broken forever, such as the outdated rewards you mentioned, and it really hurts player morale. What I would have recommended is you play the game WITHOUT Prestige for a week. That said, I know you already bought it, so what's done is done. :) Just see if you really care a lot about the advantages it gives before buying it again next month.

    kind of a noot point though cause not dropping $1.5k cash for 1 extra stig slot.

    Yeah, my dream was to be able to use Blessing of Wind while in Instigation spec. Alas, I will have to be content with +11 stigmas until they increase the success rate hueeeee.

    He is a cleric, a soldusk would have been the best. In the item guide soldusk is on top.

    It depends which set they are wanting the mace. The stats are not retunable, so they wouldn't be able to get heal boost on it for their support set. However, it would be good for their dps set.
