The Aion website and forums will also undergo maintenance tomorrow, and will be unavailable from 5:00 a.m. Central Time to 4:00 p.m. Central Time, as the web team completes necessary updates.

Outbreak of War Starts Tomorrow!

Greetings Daevas!

Starting tomorrow grab your potions and scrolls and get ready for the Outbreak of War event!
From April 11 to April 25, players can wage war more often with reduced cooldowns for ten of the most popular instances, including Esoterrace and Udas!

Be sure to look forward to the weekends of April 13 and April 20, when kinah, item drops, AP (PvE), and crafting XP will be boosted 20%! Durring these weekends will be an ideal time to race to that new level cap of 60 and try out the new instances to get some of that new gear!

Name Reservation Restricted

Hello Daevas,

Thank you for your continued support and love for Aion and the upcoming launch on 4/11 of the new Truly Free iteration with the highly anticipated 3.0 content.

As you know we opened up name reservations for the new server, Kahrun. That server is to go online on 4/11.

The response has been tremendous and we are again gratified by your dedication and affinity for the Aion service.

As of today we have reached the limit of the name reservations we can take on Kahrun before it opens. (Entirely due to the community's enthusiasm!) So from about 10PM Pacific Time until the official launch, players will no longer be able to reserve names on Kahrun.

Fortunately on launch day, Wednesday April 11th, players will be able to fully create their characters, with their desired name, as on any other new server.

We thank you again for your understanding for this slight change of plans. It is NCSOFT's desire to provide the most robust and enjoyable experience to all Aion players and with coming of Aion: Ascension we hope that you have seen, and will soon enjoy, the hard work and dedication our team has poured into this herculean effort.

Thank you again for all your support!
