Rainbow Snake's Ugly Children

capers2.png

Those glorified by the gaze of the Rainbow One are judged not by the size of their wings or the prescence of manes. The Aion team, on the other hand, absolutely judges - and harshly. And we want to see the most foul creations you can come up with using our character creator!

 

- How to Participate - 

  1. Using Aion's character creator, create the strangest, ugliest character you can. 
  2. Take a screenshot and email it to us at AionCommunity[at]NCSOFT.com
  3. Using the subject line "Aion Rainbow Snake's Ugly Children Contest" the email must also include your character name and server, as well as the phrase, "this email is submitted as an entry in the Aion Rainbow Snake's Ugly Children Contest."
  4. The entry period is from April 6, 2016 to April 27, 2016. Winners will be decided by the Aion team based on creativity, originality, and adherence to the theme. (The uglier the better!)
  5. Winners will be announced on April 28, 2016. Prizes will be delivered on or before May 4, 2016.
  6. Read the official rules here

Unbound Enchantment

enchanthorse.png

Starting retroactively from March 30, 2016 enchant your gear to win prizes! For the next 5 weeks, enchanting any gear up to +20 will earn you prizes like the Executioner's Costume Set. 

- How to Participate - 

  1. Any gear enchanted to +20 or higher starting retroactively on March 30, 2016 until May 4, 2016 will be eligible for rewards.
    1. Item creation date will not matter, only the date of the final enchantment level. For example, if you bought a weapon in 2015 but didn't enchant it to +20 until the event period, then you will receive prizes.
  2. Gear that was enchanted prior to March 30, 2016 will still count as long as you've enchanted another piece of gear during the event period or if you successfully add at least one level to the pre-existing gear.
    1. For example, if you enchant two items to +20 prior to March 30, 2016 but nothing during the event period, you will not receive a prize.
    2. But, if you enchant one additional piece of gear during the event period you will receive the prize for three items. Or, if you enchant one of the pre-exisiting items to +21 during the event period you will receive the prize for two items. 
  3. To help with the enchanting process, the Bona Fide Bootleg items will be available on the BCM, and the enchantment buff will remain active until May 4, 2016.
  4. Enchanted items must either be equipped or in your character inventory by the maintenance on May 4, 2016 in order to count. Gear that is on the Broker, in the mail, in the account/character warehouse, or pet/housing storage will not be counted.
  5. Rewards will be calculated per character.

Bona Fide Bootlegs

04082015_Bona-Fide-Bootlegs_detailpage.jpg

Shugos are professionals when it comes to dealing goods but recently a couple of them got involved with bootlegs. While not at the standard of Shugo craftmanship, Macrunerk and Yenrinerk have discovered phasing items into our world by pulling it from another dimension. In order for the phased item to continue to exist, it must be aetherized by enchantment stones. Enchant any bootleg items offered by Macrunerk and Yenrinerk to the items max enchantment level and with the next maintenance you’ll receive the actual item! This is great for gear you’ve been wanting to get your hands on!

- How to Participate -

Legitimate Bootleg

Purchase a Bootleg Modor’s Weapon or Armor Box from Macrunerk or Bootleg Abyss Weapon or Armor Box from Yenrinerk to enchant. The Bootleg Modor's Boxes are Mythic, while the Bootleg Abyss Boxes are actually Eternal gear despite the color. You will still need to treat the bootlegs like a Mythic should you chose to use any supplements or Felicitous Socketing. Each bootleg box contains items only your class can use and you can select the item you wish to enchant. To successfully convert the bootleg into the real deal, you must successfully enchant the item to its max enchantment level. Once reaching the max, the bootleg will be phased into the real item once the event period is over. Item enhancements such as manastones, godstones, and augmenting/conditioning will also transfer over on the max enchantment level bootlegs! To aid you on our your success of reaching the max enchantment level for the item (or items), all unsuccessful enchantment between level 10 to 15 will only result in the loss of one enchantment level, instead of going back to +10!

Any bootlegs with enchantments lower than the items max will be removed from the game after the event ends. In the meantime, you can still use the item!

- Enchant All the Things -

During the event period, enchanting armor and weapons will also receive the benefit of only losing one enchantment level should the enchantment fail. This only applies to enchanting gear with enchantment stones; tempering is unaffected

The enchantment buff only applies to enchanting before max level. Any enchanting failure after maximum level is unaffected. Omega Enchantment stones already have this effect and do not receive any additional benefits.

Any items sucessfully enchanted to +15 will be converted during the next maintenance. That means no waiting around for the event to end to receive the real item!

Example: If you successfully enchant an item to +15 on March 30, 2016 then you'll receive the real item with the maintenance on April 6, 2016.

 

- Location -

Macrunerk and Yenrinerk can be found by the Legions Board in Pandaemonium and Elyos Square in Sanctum.

 

- Rewards -

Players who fully enchant a bootleg weapon or armor will receive the real item with the following maintenance. 

Example: If you successfully enchant an item to +15 on March 30, 2016 then you'll receive the real item with the maintenance on April 6, 2016.

 

Enchant your bootlegs today! Event ends April 20, 2016.
