Upcoming Double Experience Weekend - 2010-05-05

Greetings Daevas,

Who's ready for another Double Experience Weekend?! That's right! It's time to once again stock up on caffeinated products in preparation for a weekend without sleep. This Friday, May 7th, at 8:00 p.m. (server time), we will enable double experience on all North American servers. The experience bonus will run through the weekend before ending on Monday 10th at 8:00 a.m. (server time).

See you on the battlefield! :)

Community Coordinator Introduction

Greetings Daevas!

We're happy to announce that we've added a new member to the Aion community team. Please give a warm welcome to our new North American community coordinator, Katherine "Trine" Field.

Katherine brings a breadth of experience to our team. She has worked with community and with QA, as well as developed in-game events. She is an avid Aion player, having played over 1,200 hours in Aion since launch, and has spent time with both Asmodian and Elyos characters. She has played nearly every class in the game, crafted through expert levels, and enjoys rifting and siege warfare. Some of her all time favorite games outside of Aion are Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, Fallout 3, and GTA4.


Ask Kinslon: Aion v1.9 Interview #4

Greetings and salutations, my ever-vigilant Atreia-dwelling friends! As you continue to wait for 1.9 to hit the live servers, your favorite Daeva reporter continues to interrogate interview Aion's producer, Chris "Kinslon" Hager.

In our final week of the "Ask Kinslon" series, we focus our questions on new skills, instance changes, and the user interface! Enjoy!


Aquilanius: The Ranger skill Retreating Slash already exists as a Stigma at level 20ish. Will the Stigma be deleted and replaced with the new level 48 skill?


Eye on Community 04.30.2010

Greetings, allies!

Three small, yet very meaningful, letters have characterized the past week: P, T, and S.

Aion's two Western public test servers went live yesterday, one for the EU and one for NA. Both will be used to test versions of Aion a little bit before they're released to the live servers. The public test servers are still running the same version as our other live servers are at the moment, but we'll let you know when this changes. The experience rates are drastically increased from those you might be used to, and leveling up should be a breeze. Make sure toget past the first three levels, since that's when you'll start seeing the difference. Head on over to our public test server forums for more info!


Aion 2.0 Patch Notes Incoming

The Korean Public Test Server today launched the much anticipated version 2.0 of Aion. Our ambition is not only to provide this content on our Western servers as soon as we can, but also to constantly relay information about these updates as soon as they appear in Korea.

The patch notes for 2.0 will to this end be published right here on aiononline.com. Unfortunately we received the notes late this time around. Since they are so large and since we don't have any particular affinity for machine translations, we'll need a few days to translate and ready them for you (they're over 38 pages!).


Public Test Server Deployed

Well met, Daevas!

The last week passed accompanied with a fair bit of anticipation for Aion's new public test server (PTS). The day has now come for that server to spread its wings and descend to our mortal realms. As you are reading this, the PTS has been online for a short while. Your friends are probably connecting already!

What are you waiting for? Log in and create your character in preparation for future patch testing right away!

What is the public test server?

The PTS is a server used to publicly test game content somewhat in advance of pushing it to the normal game servers. For more details, head on over and take a look at the server announcement.
