The maintenance is estimated to take no longer than 7 hours.

August 3 - August 10: 'Gateway Getaway' Event
August 3 - August 17: Best Days Festival

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

Thank you for your patience!


Paid Character Transfer Queue Reset August 03, 2011

Greetings Daevas!

We will be resetting the Paid Transfer Queue for North American servers on Wednesday, August 03, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. PDT (more).

Though we will be resetting the queues, the caps for both origin and destination servers are very small and will not accommodate a large number of transfers. We wish to offer a chance for players to move, however we must also protect the health of our servers. To that end, we are opening a very limited number of transfers for all factions on all servers.

However, due to the limited capacity, we anticipate these available transfer slots to fill up very quickly. We do not recommend trying to transfer as a group or a Legion to another server; you will be separated from your friends as the caps are met.

The Aion website will be made unavailable on July 28, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. PDT (more) due to maintenance.

  • 3. My Aion: Friends & Legions — Be able to see if your friends or legion mates are online from the website!
  • 4. My Aion: 3D Character Viewer — Still has a few kinks, but we've upgraded the 3D character viewer.
  • 5. My Aion: Base Stats (missing stats should now be showing)
  • 6. Server Info: New Abyss maps (Balurea)
  • 7. Forums: Character/user profile info not updating — This issue should be resolved.
