Vanity Fayre Fashion Show Season One Winners

Greetings, Daevas,

Season One of our Vanity Fayre Fashion Show has concluded. The Haute Couture staff had a wonderful time seeing all of the contestants' fresh faces and evaluating their fashion style and poise on stage.

Contestants, you made us proud with your exquisite taste, and we are sure that after the show, many of you Daevas had questions from admirers as to where and how you pulled together your ensembles. It is great to see that Atreia is not only made of warriors, but also of fashionable individuals with impeccable taste!

We are taking this opportunity to make a last minute announcement about the winners. As we were pulled into the spirit of the show, we felt that it would be best to not have only a winner for each prize selected by the Haute Couture staff, but also one elected by the community.


Gateway Getaway and Double XP Events

Greetings, Daevas,

We all love the Aion Double XP events. To supplement them, we are introducing a new kind of event that complements that big XP boost. Break out the cheers for a Gateway Getaway!

Our new NPCs, Basileides and Agnar, provide a full access pass for you to the Gateway Getaway event that begins Wednesday, February 23, and runs until March 9, 2011.

During this Gateway Getaway event, we will introduce special entrance gates that allow your characters to enter instances despite fort ownership. You can enter a selection of the Upper Abyss fort instances and Divine's Abyssal Splinter from the home territories of Primum and Teminon, and access Silentera Canyon from inside your home base in the Illusion and Gelkmaros fortresses.

Server Maintenance 3:30 a.m. PST, February 16, 2011

We will be bringing the Aion servers down at 3:30 a.m. PST, February 16, 2011 (more) for maintenance.

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

Visit our PowerWiki patch notes list for the latest game updates.

Thank you for your patience!

Nezekan Manual Transfers

Greetings Daevas,

We appreciate the players of Nezekan taking the time to participate in our two recent surveys. The information you provided helped us gain the data we required in researching the challenges players experience on Nezekan, an Oceanic time-zone based server.

The current challenges Nezekan players face has meant that their game play has been limited or greatly impacted. We have determined that to provide an improved game play experience, we will be opening up the manual transfer process for players on Nezekan.

At this time we are offering a manual transfer to those players who wish to leave Nezekan. This process offers all Nezekan characters on your account a free server transfer off Nezekan to permanently join players on the east or west coast North American server of your choice. The manual transfer application window will be open for two weeks.

The manual transfer application process will be open immediately after the weekly scheduled server maintenance on February 16, 2011 and run through March 2, 2011.

To apply for a manual transfer off Nezekan, please contact . To expedite the process, please list all your characters you are transferring and the destination server of your choice. We cannot transfer characters to a server if you already have characters residing there of another race; you cannot have both Elyos and Asmo on the same server for an account.

Citizens of Atreia Disappearing on Valentine's Day!

Late last week we had released an initial travel advisory for the areas of the Salintus desert region of Morheim and the Western Eracus desert region of Eltnen. Officials have raised the alert level to these regions, asking citizens of Elysea and Asmodae to be on the lookout for suspicious activity in these areas. We have received reports that some Daevas celebrating Valentine's Day in these areas have gone missing!

Given the nature of these threats, we ask that our Daevas be on the lookout today for requests for assistance from officials.

The Impossible Love?! Contest
