We will be bringing the Aion servers down at 3:30 a.m. PDT, July 13, 2011 (more) for maintenance.

'For War and Glory' AP Event and Faction Incentive Gateway Getaway Event

07/13/2011 to 07/20/2011

We will be turning on the Reduced AP loss and Faction Incentive Gateway Getaway Event! They will run after maintenance on 07/13/2011 till next maintenance period on 07/20/2011.

Our 'For War and Glory AP Event' is a popular event that is focused primarily on abyss points. This event specifically lets 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.

Faction Incentive Gateway Getaway Event — (Selected Servers) during this event, we will introduce special entrance gates for Asmodians only that will allow your characters to enter instances despite fort ownership. Asmodians on Siel, Israphel, and Zikel may enter a selection of the Upper Abyss fort instances and Divine's Abyssal Splinter from inside Primum, and access Silentera Canyon from inside Gelkmaros fortress.


Paid Character Transfer Queue Reset July 13, 2011

Greetings Daevas!

We will be resetting the Paid Transfer Queue for North American servers on Wednesday, July 13, 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.
