In the article they do not directly mention Egyptian but that was my point. They do say the main concept is Meso and this can be seen in many things, but they also said its the starting point of many civilizations as the Sumerian (mesopotamian) civilization is older than the Egyptian and many following civilizations actually developed many things from the Mesopotamian civilizations. The other news that is new from NC the other day says that the new PvE instance which takes place at the spot you saw in the trailer that the mobs are Apsu Baluar. So they are partly balurean or dragon based creatures so this also makes the look visually look more like anubis due to the armor they are wearing. You can actually see some have flatter faces and some have the elongated noses. I myself feel this same way but I have previously seen the concept art a long time back for this update and heard and saw a lot of the sumerian looks in the map and heard them state mesopotamian theme.

In the end they are both in the relative Middle East, or West Asia area with Mesopotamia being around the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Although Sumerian(meso) is older by maybe a few hundred years than Egyptian. There was a time where both civilizations were around so very much can be drawing inspiration from Egyptian as I agreed with Pharoahra earlier because visually at times can look better at times especially with armor. I rather not look like the Reins in older armor look I rather have the cool looking stuff like they showed. Visually it is what it is you're happy about the look or you're not. I like it, Pharoahra likes it, it looks good. All we need is to see how they decide to do the actual game content of the update

^ In the trailer you can see Irnin using the Time Artifact from Timeless Terrace. My guess would be this is all in the past.

Mesopotamian theme but close enough "메인 컨셉은 고대의 문명 중 하나인 '메소포타미아 문명'를 참고하였습니다." This is the comment from NC says that it's concept is Ancient Mesopotamia which makes sense with the names of th

Totally agree, we'll have to see the actual stats on these new passives and the gear you can create at the Altar of Vows which they say you can create your own combination of abilities.

Also we have to see their modifications to current and new items and their "balances" to classes which they will most assuredly have. Yeah I love the new top end gear though, it has a very regal ancient look to it.

Also for those who didn't check out plaync, 8.0 brings Legion Renown and Territories. While territories may seem similar to altars they are different because they change which faction controls entire areas of the map and thus has control of certain world boss spawn locations. Territories are also affected by quests completed and who owns each territory affects which quests can be completed in those territories.

Most of the 81-85 skills are passive from the name of them. Increase Vitality(HP), inc crit, inc damage, increase defense, etc, again don't know if the 84 ones are new version of the skills listed of effects added to those skills, also 85 can't tell if these are skills as well. The pledge system is similar to skill skins but its built into the gear itself so you should be able to put skins still on this new gear. The DP cap looks to be raised to 6k but it also had text on it that said it starts to deplete when out of combat for a certain period of time seeing that it is probably tied to the use of the abilities on the gear as well. The operations it said there are 15 of them and you can ally with the rein or popoku(whatever the english name for the denku xform race is) and that they actually cycle so you have to come back and take these things often. They have their own "legion"(sub race) quests that will grant you a few things as well as the ability to spawn that cloaked guy you saw in the trailer again that sell specific items that you cannot get anywhere else in exchange for certain quests rewards from the operations depending on the ones you chose to do. In otherwords if you did capture quest, kill quests or spy and collect intel the later being the exchange he wants which is interesting. Just hoping for the exacts soon

Go to Lvel 85, We have new Item Weap or Armor?

They confirmed today that Yornforged will have a Tier 4 with 100% probability of upgrading and Paragon equipment will have base stats upgraded, most likely to 85.

I don't think there will be any changes to transformation system or RNG. If they willing to addressing them they would done it as highlight of 8.0 already :/

If anyone remembered 6.0 first thing they said is reduce grind of leveling from 5.x.
By not doing anything about RNG and transformation made 8.0 quite pointless but then again if we having classic why they would made 2 versions of Aion same ?

It's unlikely classic and live will unify (story and gameplay)in near future. Maybe classic will treating as alternate universe with their own story.
Well I hope this is wrong because if it's not then 🤑😝🤪🥵🥶

Where's this information ? Can you give me the source please ? 🤗

What about RNG about daevanion skills +15,stigma +15 etc ? Will they restore sanctum back to before 6.0 with NPCS functioning ?
About farming ultimate memory shards that doesn't sound so good...

Another thing I'm concerning is auto hunting system ,they going to add  contents that you need to do a lot of farming to justify the system.
I also wondering about old NPCs in sanctum that got removed will they even come back ?

Seems that so far, reading all the patch notes that they've released, that the epic "Leak" was mostly fake news. Doesn't sound like a "reset patch" to me. In fact weapons will be upgradeable to a new tier or something. (Not sure the details because I don't play this patch currently..)

Overall doesn't look like there was any major fundamentals changed. No talk of re-tuning stat or damage calculations. No reverting back to class based stat modifiers... just every class can achieve a billion of every stat, in fact, now they can even augment more stats on their gear! Yay! Next, we can enchant our toenails and eyebrows!

 

Reading the comment section of the 8.0 patch notes is refreshing. I'm absolutely loving that the Koreans are just nonstop dunking on the development team and 8.0.

 

Maybe they'll surprise us with the final list of patch notes, but I doubt it. Looking like a flop. It's no wonder they were forced to merge another server in Korea right before release, they didn't even tailor the content properly to the current population sizes, while simultaneously making a patch that was not friendly to returning players. GG.

Lets hope they learned something from the worst patch ever 7.x. Too many random things in items, randomness in drops, randomness in stats, in slots. They need to understand a game that is pure gambling is no longer a game, this is like a casino.

As long as event driven gameplay exists we will never break the cycle of casino driven gameplay. You either gamble with your time spending 100s if not 1000s of hours per month doing events OR you spend money to not have to do those events.

All that needs to happen is progression needs to be added back in to the core gameplay mechanics like instances and open world camp quests and so on. But they will never get rid of events because that is the cash shop promotion mechanic.

The older gear "current" gear in 8.0 will be hot garbage the only gear that gets a buff is the extendables and paragon because people would rage if these weapons they spend money on or made a million of to get the right one were just useless. For the truestorm and bitterthorn throw it in the dumpster compared to the new gear if youre still running DT and Sov its will be way subpar. They are even doing a 3 week promotion at the start of this update to bring new and returning players giving away truestorm and bitterthorn gears through a questline.

Many of the Korean players you see who comment on the post are just confused on how the exacts work because they no longer do sign up beta testing or release info earlier that 1 week before update, since almost 3 year ago. There is a handful that play Classic and are upset the Classic issues are not being fixed and do not like that Live is getting changes while classic is left sitting in filth. There are also some who just complain to complain as you can see here. NC post a lot of times when they do not come from the GM they do weird vague wording that is not clear are the true functions of the things they are talking about and this is frustrating. The posts are vague and people do not like this so that is why they take to the comments and ask for clarity.

I couldn't even tell when they introduced the Kaldor battlefield notes that the center part where the portal to EB was literally has fog that you can't see targets more than maybe 50m away from you. I had to wait til the day I played it to realize this

Hi @Vinley-KT actually the leak isn't fail yet so far because that leak only mentioned 8.0 will introduce passive skills which it did what the leak failed is our expectation because it said in 8.2 it will change from free to play to something like subscribe base. In fact it's NC can change even now who care about successfully Aion when they can do whatever they wanted. Nothing of this made sense but again I think we better stop using reasons with NC it just does whatever it wants.

They teased all of this with the post back at the before February so none of this is confirm from leak. They said over 2 mo ago when they made first teases about the new update and then again when they confirmed it on the 2 of Feb it was coming there was new map, new systems, and a lot more ever changing content to breathe now life to the game. They teased about the map and the combat systems changing based on your strategic choices. This makes it very easy to draw the conclusion of what had happened and they also put in a further update before that "leak" video even went live since there was an announcement on the set date of the update. So unless in the next new or the patch notes they talk about Aion future then we have no proof that the info was true. Since day 1 of the tease the comments were full of people quoting the comment of Rebirth from the Developers because the last time they stated this was the big change of 6.0

I was reading about a rouge SWG server they made their own contents update (At least a new map). I think we should let retail Aion be whatever they want. I'm at very much the point I don't care about what NC do anymore, I just want to play a fun game. It doesn't matter if it's retail or live one. Because even you don't like what they doing what you can do beside raging in forums ? o_O

I remember reading something about the fog on korean site

even if the current gear turns to useless rubbish we have 6-7 months of 7.x to play so its kinda worth to finish the set and play, except if you plan to soft quit the game until 8.x comes to NA

Exactly. We have still to play somehow during those 6-7 months, and sov, DT, bitterthorn and AoA gear still worth farming, even if it's just for item collections.

This will never change for sure, you either have to take 1000 lashes while doing the hokey cokey and then slaughter a few virgins to Cthulhu and drink their blood until you get the chance to get something at about 1%, OR you simply wait for an event where you log in, talk to an npc and get the same item for every alt you own.

Yeah its not my comment to not use or get the gear now its just it will not be useful in the new patch going forward. So people who have many set will be similar to people still using old sets in current the only difference its not a small difference like with DT to bitterthorn its a much bigger difference in bitterthorn to the new gear. Its like trying to wear the old 6.0 ultimate firebrand/inquisitor set fighting bitterthorn. No one is to complain about this because people already do not like the farm for bitterthorn because the rng and the loss of souls when you no longer wish to farm more. The people who are working slow because time or just because they don't enjoy the grind can take their time and get it at their own pace or get it from the events to come or the quests at the start of the new update because it is no rng. Also it is good for new, returning, and current players because the new gear does not require the old gear upgrades or else like this it evens out the gear progression and is easier on all players. I am just saying it is not a rush to get so many set for them to become obselete in the next update

I only have one bitterthorn piece. I am defo not going to waste time or resources to get the set. I have been to TT when it launched to see what it is, I saw how gang infested it was in KT and decided it wasn't for me as a soloer, I only entered like the first 1~2 weeks and ever since I haven't even set foot there, it has been months.

I think they have depleted all their bad ideas with 7.x and TT was the cherry on top of it.

If you don't see yourself finishing the set youre working on in 7 months don't sweat it because there will be a new set no reason for people who dislike TT to have to grind it out there is a battlefield event where you can use coins to buy a random box and there was I think another event that gave rewards of the pvp gear as well and they have on the homepage a sections saying they are giving it in a questline for the first 3 week from 4.21 to 5.12 when the update goes live
