Conversion to Truly Free Gives Players NCoin!

Greetings Daevas!

We wish to give a heartfelt thank you to all of the Daevas who have supported Aion® in the past few years. With the release of Aion®: Ascension™, we've evolved away from the subscription model and adopted our popular and innovative Truly Free™ concept which gives players more choices for how they play.

On April 4, 2012, your account type will change from standard to Truly Free™ in preparation for the launch of Aion: Ascension on April 11th, 2012. All current, future or recurring billing will be eliminated on April 4! Also, as part of going Truly Free, formerly inactive accounts that are in good standing will be activated at this same time. We welcome everyone back to gear up and get ready for the launch of Aion: Ascension!

Any remaining game time on your account will be converted into NCoin™ at a rate of 40 NCoin per remaining day for which you had already paid. Please note that this conversion may take a couple of days to fully process on all accounts.

Additionally, that NCoin can be used immediately! The Black Cloud Marketplace ™ will open for business on April 4th as well! Our pre-order program allows you to purchase items immediately to be delivered to your character on April 11th when Aion: Ascension launches! Take advantage of ordering in advance to be ready to go on launch day!

The new Black Cloud Marketplace™ and C.U.B.E.™ bundling system will only accept NCoin. Purchasing store items is completely optional.

Aion ®: Ascension ™ Honors Kahrun for its Launch!

We are excited to announce the launch of a brand new Aion® server!

On April 4, 2012, 'Kahrun' — a new Central Time Zone server - will open up early for name reservations and character creation. Players will be able to log in and reserve their names on Kahrun and then enjoy playing those new characters when Aion: Ascension launches on April 11th.

Kahrun is the leader of the Reian people in Sarpan. It is through his will and magic that the Elyos and Asmodians were able to come together in a reluctant alliance against the Dragon Lord Tiamat. As governor of Sarpan and prime military leader for the push into Tiamaranta, Kahrun represents a new beginning on the face of an old war. But are his hopes and dreams strong enough to put an end to a war that has raged for thousands of years?

Find out on April 11th, 2012 when Aion: Ascension launches!

Aion: Ascension Player Interview!

Recently we invited Aion players to the Seattle studio to preview 3.0 and give player feedback! An awesome time was had by all who participated! Players got to play on the internal test server and see the new mounts, housing, instances, and maps. Afterwards, we interviewed them to get their reactions and feedback on both 3.0 and Truly Free. Tune in the see what they thought!


Announcing Fool's Day Event!

Greetings Daevas!

Fool's Day is here again, and chaos reigns among the monsters. Named bosses have escaped from various instances, and are running amok! Fortunately, they don't seem to be up to their normal strength, so it's up to you resourceful Daevas to make sure they don't get too far out of control.

You might even get a thing or two out of it—but be warned: it's a bad idea to trust something you found on Fool's Day…

Click the image to see the full details!

Fool's Day runs from Wednesday, March 28th, 2012 to Wednesday April 4th, 2012.

When monsters start appearing outside of the instances they're normally safely trapped in, you know something's wrong. When they turn out to be carrying fantastic weaponry, be suspicious indeed. Time to check the date. Oh, yes—must be Fool's Day!


Server Maintenance 3:30 a.m. PDT, March 28, 2012

We will be bringing the Aion servers down at 3:30 a.m. PDT, March 28, 2012 (more) for maintenance.

The maintenance is estimated to take approximately 10 hours.

During this time, on the servers Zikel and Vaizel, all characters level 9 and below that have been inactive for over one year will be deleted. This applies to all characters, even those on active accounts, if they have not been logged into since March 28, 2011.

After these characters have been deleted, Vaizel and Zikel will be merged together to form a new server - Tiamat.

The server merge FAQ is available here.

  • March 28 - April 4: 'Behind Enemy Lines' Recurring Rifting Event
  • March 28 - April 4: Fool's Day Event

The Aion website will also be serviced. After the merge occurs for the servers, the web team will need to complete necessary tasks on the databases for the website. The Aion website will be unavailable from 10:30 a.m. PDT (more)to 3 p.m. PDT (more)to complete these tasks.

Since the website will be unavailable, any changes to the schedule will be announced on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to make sure you get the most up-to-date info available!

Thank you for your patience!
