Eye on Community — February 2011

Greetings Daevas,

In this month in Eye on Community, we bring you interviews with Hayate of Urtem and the Another Cold Day Legion, an article on the Atreian Stock Market, and a look at fashion accessories in the Master Craft segment. You can also get a player's perspective of the Love to the Rescue and Vanity Fayre live events through screenshots. And by the way, a big "grats" again to the winners of Vanity Fayre: Season One!

This month we're also hosting Gateway Getaway and Double XP events. For two weeks, we open new entrances to the Chambers of Roah, Asteria Chambers, Kysis Chamber, Mieren Chambers, and Abyssal Splinter. These entrances in Reshanta are at Primum (Asmodian) and Teminon (Elyos). Now you can try several fortress instances regardless of faction ownership and level up more quickly if you haven't gotten to 55 to run the fortresses.


Have fun, and see you in-game!

Atreia Remembers…

Good day, one and all!


As all Daevas know, death is a bummer. Though we are immortal, none of us are invulnerable. From the gracious Lady Siel and the mighty Lord Israphel on down to the lowliest of fledgling Daevas, from whole legions like the Storm Legion to whole cities like Kurngalfberg, uncountable numbers have been lost. Perhaps you've suffered a massacre yourself?

This being Atreia Remembers… week, we sent our intrepid reporter, Riksha Ranapower to Pandaemonium's Apellbine Tavern to survey some of the local Daevas on death.

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.
