Greetings Daevas,

If you're anything like me, you probably love animals! Throughout my life, I've found that being around the cuteness of cats and dogs helps keep a smile on my face. In Aion®: Assault on Balaurea™, you'll find yourself in the middle of an intense war, but you won't have to face the challenges ahead alone. You'll have the ability to collect dozens of pets to accompany you along the way. Yesterday, we began discussing how you can obtain those pets, and our announcement was met with an overwhelming amount of buzz in the media. …

Greetings Daevas,

It's been another busy week here at NCSOFT, and despite being infected with an officewide plague-like flu of sorts, we're still alive! We have a lot to talk about this week, so let's get to it!

We know that many of you have been patiently waiting for your Major Crowns and Suspicious Yellow Sacks as part of the Dash of the Daevas and Fight on the Right Side events.
