"The community is having problems with the new fortress raid duration of 30 minutes. It also seems to cause a problem with the Dredgion. Will the time get adjusted again so that it is possible to attack and not only defend them?"

The siege system's timers have been topics for debate dating back to a patch we released for Aion just before the end of last year. The argument is that the new 30-minute siege duration, during which the Guardian Deity is present, is too short for a siege to be easily completed.
