Aion 5.3 Coming Soon

170120_AN_5_3_DetailPage_573x203.jpg

Aion’s 5.3 update is coming soon. In this update to Aion: Echoes of Eternity, large-scale content is the primary focus. If battling against Ereshkigal forces isn’t enough, the tournament-format Arena of Tenacity will open its doors pitting contenders against each other from both factions, and more!
 

Battleground Pandaemonium & Battleground Sanctum
With the Aetheric Field weakening following Iluma and Norsvold’s release from stasis, Ereshkigal’s forces have seized the opportunity to further expand her influence. For the first time in living memory, Dredgions have directly assaulted Pandaemonium and Sanctum. In this 384 member PVE instance, Archdaevas must defeat Ereshkigal’s invading forces and save their home.

Arena of Tenacity
In this new Arena, players from both factions are pitted against each other to reach the top spot. Players can queue for the Arena and the system will match players against others in a single-elimination tournament format.

Prime Guardian/Prime Archon Equipment
The new medal rank, Spinel Medals, along with Fragmented Spinel, can be acquired through various PvP activities – PvPvE instances, Arena of Glory, PvP quests, and more. These medals can be used to purchase Archdaeva Abyss equipment from the Hall of Fame/Glory.

Estima
Estima is a new item that can be enchanted with Estima Solution or Omega Enchantment Stones. These items can be enchanted up to +10 and up to three Estima can be equipped. Equipped Estima expands your pool of Essence Points so you can further customize your build. 

Atreian Bestiary
Players can acquire an illustrated monster book when defeating monsters in Illuma and Norsvold. Collect monster portraits and unlocks rewards for completing various stages of the book.

170120_Aion_Omega_Unbound_Enchantment_DatailPage_573x203.jpg

The Omega Enchantment Stone is a powerful enchantment stone enhanced by the Emperian Lords for Daevas. With this item, Daevas can make themselves stronger for battle. With all Daevas working together, fabulous prizes can be unlocked for everyone in Omega Unbound Enchantment.

During this promotion, all Omega Enchantment Stones (Tradeable, Untradeable, and Event) that are used, regardless of success or fail, by all players will be added up and goals will unlock special prizes for everyone in the game. There will also be a special setting on all servers to make enchanting easier! This setting will make enchanting from 10-15 drop one enchantment level instead of dropping to +10. This setting does not apply to accessories and Archdaeva equipment.

The progress will be updated daily on the forums to show the community how much progress has been made. Rewards for reaching a goal will be sent out the next business day via survey to all players.

All weapons and armor are pre-enchanted to level 10, and when enchanted to +15 will exchange for permanent gear. For those who want to push it further, armor and weapons enchanted to +18 or higher will exchange for a different, more powerful set. Accessories can also be purchased and tempered +5 or +7 for different equipment sets. “Rent” the equipment and accessories for the duration of the event, or enchant them to its required level!

We will also be giving players supplements for this promotion!

A new accessory item, the Empyrean Bracelet, is making its way to Atreia in Aion 5.3. This new accessory greatly improves your PvP Defense and slightly improves your PvP Attack, and can be leveled up through tempering similar to the Plume. At higher levels, its appearance changes and it will also gain up to 3 manastone slots. During the Tempered Power promotion (formerly known as Power of the Plumes), temper your Plumes and Bracelets for rewards! If you’re wondering when 5.3 is launching, keep an eye on our website for our announcements.
