Boiling Point Event 2016


It’s starting to cool down around the world of Atreia, how about some some hearty chowder to warm you up? Mendrunerk is back once again with his famous Mystic Chowder, and he needs the help of all Daevas and Archdaevas to find the missing ingredients.

Starting November 2, 2016 you will be able to find him, and his cauldron, in the capital cities, where he will be eagerly awaiting the ingredients you bring him. If you don’t have enough ingredients for his chowder, he will gladly exchange your left over ingredients for some Superior Recovery Potions!

Part One: Mystic Chowder (for level 21+)

When you defeat instance bosses, steal the chowder ingredients for Mendrunerk. Instance bosses have a chance to drop [Event] Bone Broth and [Event] Rolled Dumpling or you can pick up the items from our store to make the chowder. Take them to Mendrunerk in Pandaemonium or Sanctum.

Part Two: Bone Broth & Rolled Dumplings (for level 21+)

Aetherforging and Coalescence Preview

We have already gone over the new instances and arena changes in a preview here, and today, we will focus on the new crafting profession, Aetherforging, and a new means to dispose of unwanted gear called Coalescence.

Once a Daeva becomes an Archdaeva they will have access to the new crafting profession, Aetherforging, automatically. With Aetherforging, you will be able to craft a variety of items including consumables, weapons, armor, accessories, pets and more. You can use Aetherforging anywhere without requiring you to be near a crafting station; just open the window and get busy!

To get started with Aetherforging, you can start crafting materials you will need for later designs. Nearly all Aetherforging crafts will be available to you without the need for design recipes. As long as you have the materials and are at the appropriate proficiency level, you can craft the item!


Leveling Aetherforging works by crafting the available designs. There are no work orders available and there are a few crafts to help you start leveling Aetherforging. Leveling can take a long time, so be sure to craft as often as possible and use any crafting boosts you may have saved up!

Coalescence is a new way for you to dispose of you unwanted Archdaeva gear. After selecting the core item, you can add up to 6 additional pieces of equipment of the same type (weapon, armor, or accessories) and the same grade or better. You can then sacrifice them for a random item of the same type! By using more items and higher grade items in Coalescence, the odds of a high quality item goes up, along with a chance for the item to include enchantment levels.


The next Aion: Echoes of Eternity update arrives on November 9, 2016. Stay tuned for additional previews!

Aion: Echoes of Eternity Update Instance Preview

In the next update to Aion: Echoes of Eternity, new and updated instances will be available to put Archdaevas to the test!

Cradle of Eternity
Cradle of Eternity is an ancient lookout previously used to watch over Atreia. Long abandoned, a malevolent serpent named Typhon has taken up residence in this garden. As Archdaevas explored the Archives of Eternity in Norsvold and Iluma, a doorway was discovered to the Cradle.

It is your mission to rescue a missing agent previously dispatched, and purify the Cradle of Eternity by eliminating Typhon and his corruption. The instance will only be available to a party of Archdaevas after completing the Archives of Eternity quest line.



Fallen Poeta
Poeta has once again been invaded by Balaur in the future, but something is... different. Using an artifact from the Tower of Eternity, a being known as Kroban now rules. Evade Lieutenant Anuhart and defeat Brigade General Tahabata to challenge Kroban and liberate Fallen Poeta.


Fissure of Oblivion
Lady Siel created the Fissure of Oblivion to store and protect the memories of the Ancient Archdaeva. Using the memory of your past life, venture into the Fissure alone and transform into powerful ancient avatars. Within the fissure exists a Guardian whom you must face to prove you are worthy of your locked memories.


Idgel Dome Landmark & Ophidan Warpath
These Battleground instances have been updated for Archdaevas with new victory conditions, but one factor remains unchanged—the enemy faction is also competing for control of Idgel Dome Landmark and Ophidan Warpath!



Ashunatal Dredgion
The Ashunatal Dredgion, a stolen Dredgion commanded by Ashunatal Shadowslip, was discovered in the Abyss collecting the remnants of Tiamat's forces. Infiltrate the Dredgion with a group of fellow Archdaevas. Watch out for the enemy faction because they too have found their way inside.

In addition to these new instances, a new bracket for level 66+ Arenas will be available. Kamar Battlefield and Iron Wall Warfront will also be updated to be available for Archdaevas only.

The update to Aion: Echoes of Eternity is coming on November 9, 2016! We will be back for more information and guides!
