Server Maintenance 5:30 a.m. CDT, June 27, 2012

We will be bringing the Aion servers down at 5:30 a.m. CDT, June 27, 2012 for maintenance.

The maintenance is estimated to take no longer than 3 hours.

Please note: The event NPC's from Provisioning the Front Line will be removed from game during maintenance. Please exchange all [Event] Potent Rations at these NPC's before the servers go down for maintenance!

The Aion website will also be serviced and therefore remain inaccessible during the maintenance.

Thank you for your patience!


Reminder - Event NPC's removed Wednesday, 6/27

Just a friendly reminder that the Provisioning the Front Line event NPC's will be removed from game during normal weekly maintenance on Wednesday, June 27, 2012.

Please remember to exchange all of your [Event] Potent Rations at the NPC's before 5:30 am Central Time!

Besh Blitz item distribution delayed

The item distribution from the Besh Blitz has been delayed until tomorrow. We ran into a issue with the query as it was running and had to start over. The query is again running, but will not complete for several more hours, and will then have to be checked to ensure it completed successfully this time.

Rather than promise that the items will be delivered at some point later today and possibly still run into issues, we have decided to delay the distribution until tomorrow when we are confident that the right accounts have been identified and that everything will be distributed correctly and smoothly.

We expect the distribution script to be complete by early tomorrow afternoon. We will announce on the forums, Facebook and Twitter when it is complete.

Please do not send tickets to Customer Service at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience!


Improved Event Settings!

Greetings Daevas!

We have been listening to feedback about the event, and changes have been made that allow more people to participate! We have extended the time frame that Golden Aether drops, added an additional window of time for the drops, and added more locations where the Aether will drop!

Golden Aether will now drop from 11am to 3pm Central time, and also from 7pm to 1am Central. The following zones/instances have also been added:

  • B Dredge
  • C Dredge
  • Eye of Tiamaranta
  • Theobomos
  • Brusthonin
  • Nochsana Training Camp
  • Fire Temple
  • Steel Rake
  • Adma Stronghold
  • Besh Temple
  • Theo Labs
  • Dark Poeta

Please note that the group instances, the Abyss, Silentera Canyon, and the Eye have the best drop rate chances. All other areas have a slightly lower drop rate.

These changes will be applied at 7pm Central time today. No server restart is needed, so game play will not be interrupted!

We have also added additional information to our Spoils of War event page - be sure to check it out!
