These can be used to purchase Kahrun Bundles, Insignia Bundles, or Relic Bundles (each bundle costs 1 Crystal).

New Beginnings Returning User

The New Beginnings Event begins January 30, and returning users can get handy bonuses during the event!

First, every 30 minutes that you are logged into game, you will receive a Veteran Crystal, up to a maximum of 6 per day. These can be used to purchase Kahrun Bundles, Insignia Bundles, or Relic Bundles (each bundle costs 1 Crystal).

Additionally, returning users running an instance have a chance to receive a Returning Daeva’s Bundle from bosses in many popular dungeons! Only returning users can loot these. They have a chance to give items such as combat rations that grant boosts to hp and mp, useful scrolls, and manastones, enchantment stones, and even godstones! These drop from bosses in most instances level 25 and above (Dredgion and Crucibles not included).

Returning users also benefit from an increased 10% drop rate during the event! Continue your journey in Aion during the New Beginnings Event, January 30 to February 16!


IP Blocking to Combat Illicit Behavior

In our ongoing efforts to combat RMT, the Aion team will begin blocking IP addresses from China from Account Creation due to high RMT traffic. In the coming days we will closely monitor the effects of this action, and may block additional IPs that have prevalent RMT activity on a country-by-country basis.

We extend our apologies to any innocent players potentially affected. Again, this applies only to Account Creation currently. Existing accounts playing from a Chinese IP address may continue to play at this time.

Please note that proxies have become an integral tool for illicit behavior in MMOs, and as a result we do target them when we undertake anti-RMT efforts. However, legitimate latency reduction services are recognized, and a proxy will not be banned unless it is confirmed to be part of unsanctioned behavior.
