The Broken Alliance Event: rifting and rewards from 5/2 to 5/16!

To face the growing Balaur threat, Elyos and Asmodians were forced into a shaky alliance. Now, as the reluctant allies travel further into Balaur territory, their uneasy truce breaks and Elyos and Asmodians find themselves at each others' throats!

A Broken Alliance is a two-week long event from Wednesday, May 2, to Wednesday, May 16. Here's what Daevas can look forward to:

Rifting Event!

Every day during A Broken Alliance, all rifting portals will open from 6pm to 10pm Central Time in Beluslan and Heiron! Fight to your heart's content as faction protection buffs in Morheim, Beluslan, Eltnen, and Heiron are lifted (rifts will spawn naturally in Morheim and Eltnen); but be aware the slayer system will be in effect on all servers!

Daily, weekly, and special rewards!

Support your faction on the battlefield and receive a daily survey reward: a Half Rabbit Shugo Form Candy, which increases your speed and strike and spell resistance! Kill at least one enemy each week and receive a weekly [Event] Small Chaos Candy Box! You'll want to be active on the battlefield, because the 100th, 200th, and 300th players on each faction who qualify will each receive a very special Cirruspeed mount!

Legendary Raid Monster spawn!

Each Sunday during the Broken Alliance Event legendary monsters Ragnarok and Omega will spawn in Belusran and Heiron, respectively! Ragnarok spawns for Asmodians at 7pm Central; Omega spawns for Elyos at 9pm Central!


Server maintenance 4/25; housing auctions open tomorrow!

Live servers will be down for maintenance beginning at 5:30 a.m. Central Time tomorrow. Estimated time of completion for the maintenance is 8:30 a.m. Central Time.

Following the maintenance, housing auctions in Oriel and Pernon will begin!

Massively: the skinny on housing, and auction dates revealed!

Massively takes an in-depth look at player housing in Aion, and has the exclusive scoop on what you've all been waiting for: the dates of the housing auctions! Head to Massively, check out the details, and mark your calendars!

Pando Media Booster temporarily not required

We have temporarily removed Pando Media Booster so that we can test a variety of server-side adjustments regarding download completion rates and further refine the service we provide our players. We will bring Pando Media Booster back once we've optimized our service to provide the best download rates possible.

Currently, players may download and update Aion: Ascension™ directly through the NC Launcher.
