6th Anniversary Daeva's Day Events

6anniversary_detailpage_09042015.jpg

September marks our Aion anniversary. Last year Aion turned 5 and it was fantastic, this year, it is going to be spectacular with 6. We have a lot of events in store for you, Daevas-- ranging from Twitter giveaways and Facebook caption contests, to Davea's Day Cake, instance portals in the capital cities, and more!

 

DAEVA'S DAY CAKES
Two cakes await each faction in Pandaemonium for Asmodians, and Sanctum for Elyos. The Daeva's Day Anniversary Cake requires candles before you can take a slice. Three different types of four-hour buffs are available, depending on which candle you use! Collect Aether Flames from world drops, from the hidden cakes, or purchase them from the store to trade with the Aether Flame Exchanger NPC, pick a candle with the buff of your choice, and put it on the cake. All buffs will benefit nearby Daevas, and they stack* too!

INSTANCE PORTALS
For the next two weeks, access Seized Danuar Sanctuary, Anguished Dragon Lord's Refuge, and Occupied Rentus Base with a quick visit to the capital cities.

 

DOUBLE PRESTIGE CRYSTALS

For the next two weeks, Prestige Pack holders earn Prestige Crystals twice as fast, doubling the amount you earn every 20 minutes! That means instead of 12 Crystals a day, you can now earn up to 24! Trade them with special vendors for consumables and other helpful items. Click here to learn more about Prestige Crystals and how to earn them.

 

ENCHANTMENT BUFF

During the event period, enchanting armor and weapons will also receive the benefit of only losing one enchantment level should the enchantment fail past +10. This does not apply to tempering accessories and plumes, or amplifying your equipment.


HIDDEN CAKES

The not so hidden cakes are all over Atreia. If you come across a cake during your adventures, open it for (1) Aion’s Gift Box. These gift boxes give out various scrolls, potions, and a chance for an Aether Flame to use on the Daeva's Day Cake!

 

IN-GAME GM EVENT

Members of the Aion team will be in game on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 to celebrate the anniversary with our dearest Daevas. Details for the event will be available later.
