Greetings Daevas!

It's been a fantastic week, and with the smooth launch of Aion®: Assault on Balaurea, many of us here are in need of a day off to recover. Of course, we'll be spending that day of recovery by exploring Inggison, Gelkmaros, and Silentera Canyon. Perhaps we'll see you in game!

Because it's been such a busy week, we wanted to take some time to recap some of the cool stuff that we released this week:

We will be bringing the Aion servers and the website down at 4:30 a.m. PDT, September 7, 2010 (more) for an extended maintenance.

We hope you are as impatient as we are to expand your wings and finally glide into Balaurea! With only a few more days remaining, how will you prepare for the release of …

This year at PAX Prime, we have a lot of fun stuff planned for you. In addition to having a great …
