NA Server Disruption

Greetings Daevas!

Recently the NA Aion servers experienced several unexpected technical difficulties that necessitated server downtime. We realize this creates a disruption to your normal play experience and apologize for the delays you experienced.

Starting today and running until the server maintenance on Wednesday, April 13 2011, special NPCs will be available to deliver a special buff for our players. Asmodian players can find Ronya near the teleporters in all the major Asmodian cities and the soul healer in Gelkmaros. Elyos players can find Laylin near the teleporters in all the major Elysean cities and the soul healer in Inggison.

We will be having an additional maintenance for the Siel server in order to resolve some lingering hardware issues tomorrow morning. We will be bringing the Siel server down at 3:00am PDT, April 8 2011 to resolve those issues. We anticipate the downtime tomorrow morning to be four hours or less for Siel.

Due to the extended downtime experienced today and planned for tomorrow, those players who are on Siel will receive two major ancient crowns attached to their survey. The surveys will also run until the maintenance on Wednesday, April 13 2011.

We appreciate your patience during these service disruptions.

Eye on Community - March

Eye on Community
Greetings, Daevas!

In this month's in Eye on Community, we bring you an interview with Aion Producer Sean Neil and Aion Brand Manager Dominic Wai, we delve again into trends in Trade Broker pricing in our segment on the Atreian Stock Market, and we take a closer look at what crafters focus on in the Master Craft segment. We also give you a player's perspective of the PvP Daevadome live event expressed through screenshots.

March saw the Fortune Fayre visit Atreia and was also host to our A Call for Spies and Soldiers! and Behind Enemy Lines events. Recently we also ran the Welcome Back—Reactivation Celebration, in which we allowed inactive players to take another look at Aion in its current state to see all the great updates and improvements that have been made since its Western release.

We're also looking forward to April, as everyone knows that April 1 will hold some surprises.

Have fun, and see you in game!


Server Maintenance 3:00 a.m. PDT, April 6, 2011

We will be bringing the Aion servers down at 3:00 a.m. PDT, April 6, 2011 (more) for maintenance.

Thank you for your patience!


Behind Enemy Lines Recurring Rifting Event

Greetings, Daevas!

April 13th will mark the start of a several month trial period with our rifting event, 'Behind Enemy Lines'. During this trial period we will be running the event every other week; allowing for a repeating cycle of one week with the rifting event settings and one week without the rifting event settings. Our goal is to bring this event to our servers on a more regular basis, so that all of our players can have a chance to enjoy the different kinds of content that Aion has to offer.

Starting Wednesday, April 13, 2011 after maintenance, we are starting the first week of the Behind Enemy Lines Recurring Rifting Event! This week's portion of the recurring rifting event continues until April 20, 2011 and will end at maintenance. 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.

Happy Hunting, Daevas!

Race Conflict Resolution

Greetings Daevas!


We will begin the last phase of our Race Conflict Resolution starting on Monday April 11, 2011. Only accounts which still have both Asmodian and Elyos characters on the same server will be affected. While the majority of affected accounts with a race conflict have already been addressed, the remaining 3% of accounts that still have a dual race conflict will be subject to this process. Each dual race conflict will be resolved on a case by case basis, while being the least disruptive to our current server populations.



Server Maintenance 3:00 a.m. PDT, March 30, 2011

We will be bringing the Aion servers down at 3:00 a.m. PDT, March 30, 2011 (more) for maintenance.


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

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

Thank you for your patience!
