Atreia's Artisan Expo!

Have you always wanted to try your hand at creating a beautiful sword? Maybe you have wanted to don a chef's hat and explore the results of adding hot spice to your favorite dumpling? Do you wish you had the skill to harvest the rare Tinga fish or Magical Aether?

Now is your chance, Daevas! The Artisan Masters of Atreia have arranged for a weekend devoted to accelerated skill-up in crafting, essencetapping and aethertapping! The event begins on Friday, December 17 at 8pm server time and runs until Monday, December 20 at 8am server time.

The Solorius Festival 2010 and New Years Event!

Greetings Daevas, Solorius starts today! 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! Ring in the Year of the Ribbit with a feast fit for an Empyrean Lord! Celebrants all over Atreia will be ushering in the Year of the Ribbit from Wednesday December 22nd, 2010 to Wednesday January 12th, 2011. The monsters have gotten into the banquet supplies, and it's up to you to retrieve them. You can feast on them yourself (and, trust us—they are nutritious AND delicious), or you can trade them in to one of the event staff who are trying to put together lunch boxes to feed the needy. If you choose this path, you will be rewarded handsomely for your efforts.

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.
