Eye on Community - June

Greetings Daevas,

When we started writing this edition of the Eye on Community we couldn't help but think "how did it get so late so soon?" We're already at the end of June and the time has flown by. Probably because we were so busy doing the new2.5 instances, playing with our new pets and spending time trying on and selecting our outfits to go to the Disco Party! We're pretty sure you saw some funky Elyos and Asmodians rocking Atreia in their blond afro and sparkly suits!

We also executed several small contests on our website and forums, we hope you enjoyed them as much as we did; according to the number of participations we received, we believe you did!

On the menu for this edition of the Eye on Community: pure fun!

You'll discover the face of the members of our lovely community team and get to know, among other things, their most memorable "epic fails"! You'll get to see various screenshots submitted by our players of the new 2.5 graphics! We'll show you how to create a transparent legion logo for your new cloaks so you can make your Legion logo unique. And you'll have the chance to discover interviews of the players who led Urtem and Zikel to be part of Aion history by defeating Sematariux and Padmarashka, respectively, for the very first time here in the West!

Only good things in perspective, hope you'll enjoy this June Eye on Community and good game to all!

Have fun, Daevas, and we'll see you in game!


Coming Soon - Independence Daeva

Independence Daeva marks the traditional anniversary of when the original Humans declared themselves free from oppressive Balaur rule. We celebrate the brave Humans who, though they didn't yet possess Daevic power, decided that they would refuse to bow down to the Dragon Lords as the Mau and Krall had done.

Server Maintenance, Rifting Event and Reduced AP Loss Event 06/22/2011 3:30 a.m. PDT

We will be bringing the Aion servers down at 06/22/2011 3:30 a.m. PDT (more) for maintenance.

The maintenance is estimated to take no longer than 2 hours.

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

We will also be turning on the Reduced AP loss and Rifting events! They will run after maintenance on 06/22/2011 till next maintenance period on 06/29/2011. During this rifting event, we'll remove the defensive buffs in Heiron and Beluslan. The defensive buffs will remain in place in Eltnen and Morheim.

Our 'For War and Glory AP Event' is a popular event that is focused primarily on abyss points. This event specifically, letting you get more AP and keep more. AP loss from PvP encounters in the Abyss, Silentera Canyon, Ingisson and Gelkmaros will be reduced by 50%, all other areas of the game will deliver the normal amount of AP loss. Additionally we will be increasing the amount of AP gain from monsters in the Abyss and Silentera canyon, giving you more AP per kill.

We will be bringing down the Aion Online NA Forums at 08:00 a.m. PDT, June 22, 2011 for maintenance and an upgrade. This maintenance window only affects the NA Aion Online forums. The EU forums will remain accessible during this time.

The maintenance is estimated to take no longer than 5 hours.

Thank you for your patience!
