    actually the P.Def and Strike Fortitude you get from Shield Mantra won't help you, neither in PVE or PVP. This mantra is useless most of time. I woudn't recommend using it instead of Revival, except, like Bryos said, to help people who have specific sets, like BLOCK and (hummm) Evasion.

    Good to know, thank you!

    Wind mantra in Reshanta is a no brainer. :P

    Well, that's what I thought too, but then I saw the other chanter with celerity and was like ???? am I missing something here? lol Must have just not been paying attention to what he/she had on.

    Good point on IDL/celerity. Will keep that in mind.

  3. I was in UA siege last night and was in a group with another chanter. This other chanter had on celerity, and it confused the heck out of me. There's no running involved, so why? I thought maybe there was a legitimate reason to have celerity on while flying and I just don't know about it lol. But anyway, it got me wondering what combinations chanters like to use for various things? I'd like to read other people's ideas.

    I pretty much always have on Invincibility live_ch_chant_invincible_g1.png and Hit live_ch_chant_improvedcritical_g1.png. For my third mantra, I mix it up depending on the situation.

    For UA siege/flying, I like to use Wind ch_chant_windywings_g1.png as it's good for moving quickly and also helps to restore flight time when your wings get clipped.

    For PVP, I like Celerity cbt_ch_chant_improvedmove_g1.png because it's always good to be faster than your opponents -- either to catch them or run from them. :D

    For PVE, I use Revival cbt_ch_chant_regeneration_g1.png when the group is doing good/okay. If we're getting pounded and struggling to keep up with heals, I may switch to Shield cbt_ch_chant_improveddefend_g1.png to help buffer up our defenses.

  4. Someone in my legion asked us to help because he/she was having difficulties soloing Fallen Poeta. I checked his/her level: 68. I gently said, "If you ARE using the glide hack, I hope you would stop as I wouldn't want to see you get banned." He/she just said "ok," so I took that to mean that the hack was, indeed, being exploited. But y i k e s. More people are using it than I thought.

  5. Birbs are so pure. Birbs are best.


    Real life peeve: Uterus-sama is not a gentle mistress this month. In bed all day yesterday and now at work like a zombie with my microwaveable tummy pouch.


    Aion peeve: Every server has its own culture. New transfers would rather butt heads with everyone and undermine leaders in the middle of siege/dredge than actually try to integrate. Siiiiigh.

  6. Perhaps *you* should not have been targeted, but umadman and grizzlybear, whoever tf they are (not on your server), should have been called out.

    Maybe I'm just a little triggered on behalf of the chanter because everyone always forgets about us and/or assumes we aren't doing anything -- until we die and our mantras disappear and everyone's HP starts going down because we actually WERE helping heal. But I digress. Hopefully the two people who told the chanter not to roll will see this thread and not make the mistake in the future.

    I also am just starting to lvl up alchemy. Heard it was still better instead of other profession. Anyways, any tips for noobs like me?? 

    What items should I craft, and what I should avoid.. thanks.

    So from one noob to another lol... (got it up to level 70 last night, gonna try more this weekend)

    From what I've read in multiple threads on the old forums and reddit, it's best to do the work orders from levels 1-400. At that point, work orders will no longer be available. The work orders are touted as being the best option because it's easiest to get the materials for them (from the NPC vendor), and it's the cheapest option.

    Personally, as I don't have a money problem (currently lol), I'm doing about 75% work orders and then 25% other things, such as elemental waters and powders and other things which will be used in future crafting. I'm just storing them in my pet for now.

    Other tips I've read: do your crafting during XP/crafting boost weekends (duh), use crafting amulets if you have them (duh), and if you want to save more time (but will cost more), the crafting tables in Pernon/Oriel are faster to use than the ones in Panda/Sanctum.

    Yet everyone will be getting it just because it's the iPhone!

    I still have my Nexus 5 from 2014(?)I never got this "must have the latest phone" every year. I guess I'm just not "hip" like everyone else!

    I still have my Galaxy S5 from early 2015 and have no plans of upgrading it until it breaks. It's still going strong, not even a scratch on the screen. I don't see the point in getting rid of perfectly good phones.

    Make a PVE Server vs a fast track, make it where players could reguardless of faction enjoy both asmo lands and elyos lands. Again Rift does this and its awesome, and we do spend money in it lots! Give people options.

    Do 3 server types.




    Problem with that: There just aren't enough people playing Aion, plain and simple. That's why we're merging. All of the players will still be split into 6 "servers" after merge -- Katalam Ely, Katalam Asmo, Danaria Ely, Danaria Asmo, FTS Ely, FTS Asmo -- although I guess you could argue that FTS people are only on there a short while. Still, there's a division. To further split the playerbase by adding addition PVE-only or PVP-only servers is only decreasing the playerbase even more. We already have trouble filling groups for things. We can't continue to divide the playerbase because there just aren't enough of us left.

    I'm more of a PVE queen myself, although I don't mind the occasional PVP either, such as in sieges or arenas. I, personally, don't see a problem with how it's currently set up. Again, because there just aren't enough players, I don't often get ganked out in open world. Maybe a few times a week, not even once a day. I go out and around Norsvold, Levinshor, Kaldor, and Enshar, exploring and enjoying the art quite often. If you have played 66+ for more than a couple weeks, then you would be familiar with how open world PVP "works" as it follows a pattern. It's heaviest from 6pm-10pm server time, and they're always located in certain areas. For example, if I don't feel like dealing with the opposite faction, I will avoid certain areas in Norsvold. I guess maybe it's an inconvenience to you, but I don't really see it as being that big of a deal as there are so many other things to do in the game.

    I'm not trying to downplay your concerns; just trying to offer an alternative view in which there are ways to avoid things you don't like. While you and I like PVE more, I'd say most of the players actually prefer PVP. I'd wager you and I are in the minority, so NCsoft is actually doing "right" by more of the remaining playerbase. I agree the game is not perfect, but you can make your own fun with friends and by trying not to think of how on-point some other players are. That shouldn't matter to you anyway since you don't like to PVP very often.

    The scrolls still sell because you can't use the Code Red ones in PvP- unless you don't run with a rebuffing pet and you're fine with putting all your 30min scrolls back up every time you meet a spiritmaster.

    Interesting; I had not thought about that.

    Good info, thank you. As I mentioned, I mainly want this for myself, but I do plan to make use of extra crafting to sell when I'm bored. I figured I'd get a separate storage pet just for alchemy stuff, so that may help keep the inventory clean a little bit.

  11. So yesterday I started trying to level up alchemy. I'm only at level 50 right now lol. I know the old professions are basically dead, but alchemy and cooking are still marginally useful. I mainly just want to be able to craft superior wind serums because I feel like I get my wings clipped during siege more than the average person lol. :(

    Anyway, what are other useful things to craft with alchemy that still actually sell on the broker? Obviously the scrolls aren't going to sell right now since we're all stocked up from Code Red -- although, I guess they could be useful early next year once we've all run out of the Code Red scrolls. Superior recovery serums, perhaps?

    From what I've read, fine bracing water is a good one since it's a good shield. Also, people always need those temporal stones for that campaign leveling quest. Are there any alchemy masters who can say what items you find the most useful to craft (in order to sell for kinah)?

  12. Yes, but only because I've never managed to get an Ely above level 40. I just lose interest in the classes I've rolled on that side lol. To clarify, I wouldn't want to stay Ely though. Just for a few days to experience their endgame quests lol.

     unless apollon enchanted gives better states then frigida? 

    Apollon and *Sophisticated* Frigida are about equal. However, if you're asking about eternal supplements, then I assume you just have the regular Frigida which isn't that good unless you're level 66-67 or so. If you can quickly get it enchanted up to level 10 and then purify it into Pure Frigida, you'll be a bit better off though until you can either buy Apollon/Sophisticated or get them through the actual instances themselves.

    to be very fair to everyone, you should really cancel Aion.



    So anyway.......

    Cyan, are the devs working on a fix for Hinshada, the Levinshor NPC that gives greater supplements in exchange for blood marks, not resetting every week? I put in a ticket a week and a half ago and they said they'd forward to devs. I know fixes take time, but I miss my greater supps lol. All these blood marks to spend... :(

    Poor, poor piggies :( I actually feel a little guilty if I lose one.

    Amusing side note: my cat's name is Piglet (we call her Piggy) and I tend to talk to the game while I play, which means she thinks I'm talking to her and she "helps" by lying across my arms. Makes it REAL easy to be stealthy and avoid being spotted, let me tell ya.

    I know that feel! hahah (You can barely see my laptop in the background.)

    If they wish to allow GP to be obtained from PvE, then how about adding an extra requirement for ranks above 5 star? A third different token only obtained from sieges and big raid events (Norsvold/Iluma invasion). Then those wishing to achieve those high ranks will be required to siege amyway.

    Those who do achieve it will be active during sieges. Those who just rank up through random GP gain will not get them. I suppose it should expire, just like GP does.

    Really fantastic idea. I mean, we know it won't ever get implemented, but it's a great idea.
