  1. Ah, that's too bad. My line of thinking was similar to Shoen's. It doesn't help that NC used vague wording in their announcement. Thank you for clarifying.
  2. No Mac OS support for Aion That said, there are people who have reported being able to get Aion to run on Mac through Wine (last tested version was 5.4) or Boot Camp. Do some research on those and see if you can get it to work.
  3. She's close to the teleporter for your faction in Stellusia. For Asmodians: Search for Marghetta, then walk past the steps and you'll see Zudra For Elyos: Search for Luinas and do the same as above. There's usually large groups of people standing by important NPCs. Look where people tend to congregate.
  4. Are you certain you killed the right key keeper? There are multiple and each one has a key that corresponds to a different prison/shugo. You should be able to check if you have the right key by looking at the description. IIRC it goes into your special inventory. Right-click it to open the prison door. The quest forces you to do it three times before you can move onto the next step.
  5. PvP gear isn't really the issue, it's everything else. But! If you're planning on returning, do it NOW while the Hungry Hatchlings event is running (you have until May 27th). It basically allows you to catch up to the average player with minimal effort. Missing this event will really set you back or make it nigh impossible to catch up unless future events provide similar rewards. No way to log into the game on an iPad.
  6. Aion Powerbook and Aion Online News (Update tab) are good summations of what has changed over time. Read through old patch notes to fully inform yourself of what happened since you last played. As far as population is concerned, if you're on Katalam, you're already on the more populated server. The factions are relatively balanced. If you can play EU servers, you might be better off going to GameForge Aion instead since their population is significantly higher. On toxicity: Unfortunately, what you see is what you get. The game stopped catering to casuals and went all in on retaining
  7. Most of your post seems accurate but swords still show as having a slightly higher weapon damage compared to daggers. Dagger (167-185) vs Sword (185-226) In the past, daggers had a higher crit modifier compared to swords. Is this still true? If so, D/D definitely seems best for everything. If not, would higher weapon damage and extra strike on swords translate to higher DPS over longer PvE battles?
  8. The soccer ball head is pretty great though... The Windiel and Risiel gear given through the guide quests should be more than enough to walk out of town and make your way to BoS on foot where you can start earning kinah for teleporting and everything else. If you're a new or returning player, the Blooming Sprout Event in Demaha also gives you 30-day Ultimate Risiel gear and a 1-hour long legendary transformation to use, so you won't need to be carried. Agree with the stigmas though.
  9. You shouldn't be. That wall-o-text perfectly sums up everything that's wrong with Aion and more people need to see it. In any case, when people discuss F2P, they generally mean it both in terms of access and equity. Aion's F2P gives you access, but as @2s105714-DN said, it'll take a new player significantly longer (6+ months, maybe years) to be on par with any established or paying player. Differences between paying and non-paying players are fine as long as the gap is kept to a minimum. When Aion first went F2P, it really was one of the best systems out there because it was mostly
  10. I think I found it but the included image no longer works. In any case, that post seems very similar to information presented on this site: http://aioninfo.com/online/ which gives current and daily login stats for EU Aion servers. Click the names to see charts. Population for EU servers seem to range between 20-30% of server capacity. We know that NA population is much lower, so take that information with a grain of salt. @waffles-DN, would you happen to have information on current NA population that you could provide?
  11. That's because the stats are based of sub-Reddit activity/subscribers instead of actual player count from game servers. That site is not a good reference point; anyone can subscribe and post to a sub-Reddit without actually playing the game. Someone posted numbers off Aion Rainmeter's server status (or something similar) sometime ago and those figures seemed closer to actual player count. I can't seem to find the post though. If anyone finds it, please link it back here.
  12. I never followed her closely, but I do think MJ Guthrie contributed to NCWest's decision to remove faction restrictions on servers way back in 2012 - 2013. Mid 2012 she published an article highlighting why it was a bad idea and how NC was shooting themselves in the foot by barring people from playing with friends, forcing them to re-roll, etc. A few weeks after that post, restrictions were removed entirely and several months after NC announced it put together the Asmodian Initiative. Could be a coincidence, but her publicly blasting NC's decisions probably gave them incentive to change. It's
  13. Disclaimer: I am not among the people dropping dislikes on your videos. Thank you for explaining your process of creating videos. It's clear that you work hard and put a lot of effort into them, but in the end, they suffer from a distinct lack of actual "content." What do I mean by this? How about 20 seconds of literally NOTHING in the intro but your name and Aion's logo? Then approximately 40 seconds of showing the quest that people probably already have and are looking for information on. You then show 23 seconds of critical information and the remaining 52 seconds of your vid
