Recommended Posts

Cyan   

There will be a scheduled maintenance Wednesday, November 6, 2019 from 6:00 a.m. CST / 13:00 CET. The game servers will be unavailable for approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes.

Changes

  • Routine website and server maintenance
  • Pumpkin King's Haunt event will end.
  • Enchant-O-Rama will begin. Full details will be provided after the maintenance.
  • New Transformation Contract (64 Types) that has a chance of unlocking Colory and Irnin will be added.
    • Bundles, instance rewards, merchants, and Gold Sand Traders will be updated to provide the new contract instead of the old "62 Types" contract.
      • The Black Cloud Marketplace will be updated at a later date.
  • The reward quests (that require the various levels of Glorious Medals) for the Glory Points seasons will be updated to provide the previous Enchantment Stone rewards instead of Luna. 
  • An issue with Drakenspire Depths entry counts on non-Prestige accounts will be fixed.
  • An issue where level 76-80 characters could not get XP orbs from the boss of the Secret Munitions Factory Luna instance will be fixed.
  • An issue where Flaming Meteor and Flame Waltz still had Stun listed as a skill attribute after the changes introduced in the Mark of the Vandal update will be fixed.
  • Luna instances will be updated so when they are exited, characters are returned to their obelisk rather than where they entered from.

 

Be sure to follow @AionOps for server updates.

@Cyan

 

Maybe look into updating certain parts of the game that are completely out of date and some that are completely useless for players and people looking to progress in the game. Maybe update it so every 3 months which might boost BCM sales or Luna sales.

Eg. (basic list of junk I see that never gets updated since the new patch began like over a year ago.)

- Lockbox rewards.

- Luna Shop - Daishunerk Game of Fate

- Luna Shop - Munirunerk Treasure Chest

- * Add Transformation candy to event prises since none of the event have had it for a while.

- * Add an updated rewards to Taki's Mission reward bundles.

-* Add more updated rewards to most event since most event items the past 4 events where maybe used in Aion 6.8.

 

Just a thought for basic business.

@Cyan Is that a typo or are we completely losing the Luna rewards from Glory Points rewards?

I hope Enchant-O-Rama is a safe spot at +9 stigmas. Not gonna risk +12 until +9 is a safe spot. I will keep my money on enchant stones until then.

maybe im wrong, but i think is where we have to buy a box in an npc, we choose what kind of item we want ( weapon or gear ) and we have to enchant it, and if at the end of the event the item is +15 we keep it, if not, we lose it.

@Cyan Surely you cannot seriously be removing our luna rewards from the seasonal rankings after having given us both stones and luna for a couple months. You really need to think about this: the stone rewards are garbage and not worth the effort anyone puts in unless you are one of the 9 (across both servers) top 3 players. You're removing incentive for people to put in the time and play the game.

A top 30 player gets 10 legendary stones after 4 weeks. Even if all you do in those 4 weeks is show up to sieges and, even though this is not possible, you lose every siege for a month you still get 28 stones for absolutely nothing. It is not worth being invested in the game for such a low reward.

@Cyan please reconsider this; I'm not just raging and demanding "moar 4 free plez", I just think you've listened to a loud minority of the playerbase and cracked under the pressure. Most of the complaints about the luna rewards were that it should be more luna but personally I would prefer what you're giving us over nothing at all, and I am sure just about everyone can agree with that.

What the heck I got GP and arena ranking for Luna, at least let  it for this season. You can’t just change the season reward after 75% in.

Also you said there would be an update on the insignia quests the ones that give Luna based on arena of discipline wins and the dredging bridge captain.

Whats going to happen to those who cheated with Luna in siege to get more GP. Aren’t they gonna be punished.

Also any fix for evergale and compensation, some of us paid prestige to get extra runs for evergale and are not getting that.

many people complained about this change when NA changed the season rewards without notice, they didnt like the luna rewards and wanted the enchantment stones back, i think luna reward is better than the stones.

Let us keep luna rewards for this season, that was our motivation, needed it for tuning. Enchantments stone we can easily get from like ultimate and legendary tickets.

Do all non-Prestige users will have 2 entry?

 

Shouldn't prestige users get more runs, feels like prestige users get nothing decent at all for the amount we pay.

Please. I beg of you. Don't let this change go through. If you're gonna change anything, have the PvP stones + the Luna rewards. 
Even better, include the PvP Stones, but make them the same rates as KR has AND include the Luna rewards.

@Falcy-DN Stop asking for KR rewards, we play two different games with progression scaled to the demographic. Everything else you said was fine, at this rate I would literally trade in enchantment stones for luna like ??? they're free and easier to get in larger quantaties than luna is. 10 ultimates for being Governor is nothing, let alone the 10 legendaries for being a General.

*EDIT: gathering those pvp stones also requires a small grind but it is easier and faster than the luna grind and involves actually playing the game to achieve it (PVP instances, altars, etc)*

Give

us

luna.

Or this game becomes a weekly and daily obligation of afking your 13 toons for ~10min each per day and doing all 13 weeklies. If you don't afk all your lunas then you can either
A: not afford anything, or
B: Actually do all 13 of them each day every day to barely afford something -- all while not participating in open world, instances, sieges, pve, pvp, events; you would need to have an extraordinary amount of spare time to fit in the luna spam + other actual genuine means of progression. I would like to remind you that of the post which caused this change, most people just complained about the quantity of luna, with the exception of players like MetalPhantomEvil-DN and Sexy-DN, both of whom were top 3 players of that season and had a personal reason to be upset about the change.

Alternate fencesitting idea: make a duplicate NPC who rewards stones while the other rewards luna. Give us the option of both without spoiling us with both if it's too much to ask for. Failing that, just give us luna.

Why not make it so they are teleported outside fortress area, treat it the same as if you log out in a fortress you don't own. While punish all characters by forcing us to return to Obelisk. Also its unfair to start a season and let it run for 3 weeks and change it like that. Some people's motivation is for luna.

Wow NCsoft you continue to amaze me, no one asked you to change it into pvp stones, we wanted luna. Its one thing to change it against the wishes of the community but to change it during the current season is a dog move.

This suggestion, here. Obviously some players prefer luna, while others prefer stones, so why not* let us choose?

*I say, knowing full well the answer to 'why not' is because that's another thing the devs would have to implement, and the devs aren't keen on the whole implementing of things we request business.
