Smokespirit on server [GER]thor asks:

"How do Clerics earn Abyss Points?"

Abyss Points, in general, are rewarded based in the damage dealt by a whole group. (A group being, at maximum, six characters.) A Cleric will not gain any Abyss Points if he plays on his own and heals the members of a different group, but he will gain the same number of Abyss Points as his fellow group members receive when they fight other players or groups. He also gains the same amount of Abyss Points as anyone else would when dealing damage and successfully defeating opponents in one-on-one situations.

Weekly Web Roundup 11.03.09

Extra, extra, read all about it! Here comes another Weekly Web Roundup hot off the presses. This week we take a look at a review published by PC Zone, UK's second largest gaming magazine; Game Informer's weekly list of top PC titles; and two news articles that look at part one of the 1.5.1 patch notes and Aion Veteran Rewards.

We start the roundup with a favorable review from UK gaming magazine, PC Zone. In the review, Aion is referred to as: "Beautiful, addictive and well-balanced, presented palatably and with constant, satisfying rewards." Their three-page review, which unfortunately isn't available online, gave Aion an 80% rating.

Navalie, Templar on [ENG]Telemachus, asks:

"Many are complaining that it gets too slow to level up on some levels. When are you going to do something about that?"

Character progression is a complicated matter. Look at the famous board game, Monopoly. If each player started the game with twice the amount of money or a set of properties already owned, the challenge would be reduced, and ultimately the game would not be as enjoyable. However, the game would not run for as long, and you would more quickly get to the point where you manage the red hotels, which—let's face it—is good fun.
