Rifting Feedback

Greetings Daevas of Atreia!

Hope you're enjoying this exciting week in Aion! This morning, we made adjustments to the Rifting system based on your feedback. We want to let you know this is not finalized in any way. Next week we will be asking your opinions again on the Rifting system, and will then make the necessary tweaks.

Until then, keep your blades sharpened and your senses sharper…

One-Month Trial of Rifting Changes

Greetings Daevas!

When Aion®: Assault on Balaurea™ released, rifting changed in Aion®. The rifting changes focused on placing a strong protective buff on homeland defenders in lands accessed by rifts. Some time after the launch of Assault on Balaurea, our Aion Community and Production Teams gathered your feedback, both in the forums and through a gamewide survey, to gauge your thoughts and preferences on rifting. The results of that feedback culminated in a proposal we took to the development team in Korea.

The Solorius Festival is here!

Greetings Daevas,

Brrr! Can you feel that nip in the air? Don't let the chill take your energy, though. Instead stay warm by celebrating Solorius, the traditional Atreian midwinter festival, from December 15, 2010 to January 5, 2011!

The Solorius festival is not only fun — it is also a great way to collect tons of tasty goodies, not mentioning dyes, candy, and the perennial favorite, festive decorative hats! To get started, give the Festival Staff NPCs a helping hand by tracking down some missing Solorius socks.
