    In all seriousness, this would make so many of us angry. It's not just shop skins. A lot of us have old GEAR pieces and weapons that we use as skins

    I don't know what I would do if my Fenris/Anuhart skins disappeared @_@ I love them so much.

    On topic: Mechanical changes to the game aren't the biggest issue for grabbing older players imo. The thing that brought me back, someone who has played Aion since beta and had quit for the past two years, was simple. The Stormwing event. An opportunity to catch up without the cash shop was extremely appealing to me and it put me in my full ult armor/weapons. Aion is an especially difficult game to pick up right now even as a returning player with the near constant, often fundamental changes Aion goes through from patch to patch. More events that both help established players and provide entry/reentry points for new/returning players are the missing piece for the player retention issues that plague the game.

    It doesn't help that cleric heals continue to be nerfed, nerfed, nerfed with each patch. They're about to be nerfed again when Ripple of Healing's CD increases to 12 seconds and when Noble Grace no longer gives 50% recovery and only gives an HP boost instead. RIP Noble Grace, you were loved. Also, there's a lot of jumping around in these endgame instances, and it's tough for clerics to stand still to charge their main healing skill. Chanters have a lot more mobility while healing which makes it easier.

    Yeah it's a really strange dynamic that they seem to be pushing, kinda bumming my group's chanter out. She liked having the option to spec into support if we needed it and it's really feeling like the only option now. My cleric also saw this and was very sad about Noble Grace lol.

    inb4 all my healers reroll D:

    I'm going to kick your snowman over this winter.

    Things that never change:

    1. War

    2. Aion

    3. Alice's misplaced snowman aggression

  3. Thank you all so much for the replies and advice! For clarity I was asking on behalf of my group's chanter who, like the rest of my legion, is recently returned having been absent for the entirety of 6.0-7.2. We did very little PvE during 5.x and she was used to functioning almost exclusively in a DPS setup for PvP so all the HM content has been...eye opening. We were both like "man, there sure are a lot of support chanters now". I had no idea they had taken such a prominent healing role but that makes a lot of sense with how their skills have been tweaked since we last played. Watched your solo IDDHM healing vid as well @Vantheria-DN very impressive!

    Thank you all for the advice!

  4. Here on behalf of my socially awkward Chanter: What are the role expectations (especially in Pugs) for Chanters in PvE? What kind of manastone socketing will be most beneficial for a full Sovereign set? Basically trying to work out the dps/support balance for most HM content.


  5. Just wanted to throw this out there for you but Lakrum's level 9 renown rewards have Ultimate Transformations for 2x XP marks a pop, 10 per week. I know level 9 isn't really "feasible" to reach but now is probably the time for it since our weekly renown decay is turned off (I think?). Might at least put it into the realm of possibility, and level 9 is probably easier to maintain if you hit it before the decay kicks back in. I agree with your post though, we do need some easier access to ulti pots even in limited quantities.

    Yeah I really like this set too, I think it is https://aionpowerbook.com/powerbook/Item:110900394

    You guys can really just go through the backlog of old crafted skins that are no longer available and make serious bank. Old Balic skins had especially cool/unique designs. People shelled out pretty serious kinah for them back in the day, a couple bucks is an easy substitute for getting 3+ procs in a row >_>.

    Also make sure to wear that t1 Crucible hat that's basically just a studded belt slung across your head with that set :D moar belts.

  7. Strongly agree with these suggestions, kinah generation through non-luna methods is far too low. We live in a world where old methods of kinah farming were obliterated in the name of denying bots an easy source of income only to have luna, an even more bot-friendly kinah generator, rise in its place. I'd rather go slap a million rubbish mobs for whites to vendor than coordinate afk luna instances on 6432256 accounts :(.

    I miss when they did survey back in the days asking for siege schedule.

    ^^^ Just throwing support behind this.

    Talk to us, take the feedback from this thread and throw out a survey in game to get a real impression of where the bulk of your players land on siege times. Sieges are supposed to be for us and are a critically important element of Aion that should be scheduled in such a way that a maximum amount of players can attend with strong consideration given to the simple fact that this is a North American server.

    Keep it the same or bump it an hour earlier (imo).

  9. Godstone "Strengthened Fregion's Trick" (New Blind godstone) displays as Silence when you socket it into a weapon.



    All of the new Strengthened Godstones I've seen have an incorrect description attached to them indicating that they will break when the "buff" ends. This is poorly worded and ambiguous. In reality they have a low chance of breaking on each activation of their effect. The text should read: "There is a small chance the godstone will be destroyed upon triggering its effect."

    This is a huge help 'cause I am so lost.

    I don't even know where the vendors are or what i should be doing.

    I'm a fresh 66 and I tried to do quests in Illuma but was getting one shotted by all the asmos running around.

    Can't run any dungeons 'cause everyone wants a level 70.

    Tried to do the arena challenges but get stun locked and 2 shot there as well.

    I have no clue how I'm supposed to catch up.

    Alright so I would recommend primarily leveling through Fissure of Oblivion and the Luna Daily/Weekly instances at first. All of them are solo and will move you through 66/67 rather quickly. Your first goal should be getting to 68 which unlocks the Roah/Asteria camp weekly quests in the abyss which will rapidly speed you to 70 if you can find a couple people to do them with. Also just take some time and talk to each npc in the relevant towns and just get a lay of the land. Make sure you at least have a good feeling about Illuma/Redemption Landing.

    If you're having trouble finding the ancient coin gear vendors or anything I believe they should be in Cygnea somewhere. I'm an asmo and am not sure where your relevant npcs are! Good luck leveling!

    I think I may have seen you take that picture yesterday. :P

    And congrats! I am loving my Protection Ward.

    Thanks! Yeah, Protection Ward has saved me so many times since my group's Chanter got it.

    *pauses for 4-man CoE trauma to pass*

    So many times.

    Some of us would like to move sooner, rather than later.


    I know it's frustrating but in this case the delay isn't just a random decision, they're trying to work with us and ensure everyone gets taken care of. The justified outcry revolving around the transfer issue is worth waiting a few extra weeks to resolve, even if the further delay is disappointing (it is to me as well).
