Upheaval Launches in Two Days

06032015_Upheaval-Date_detailpage.jpg

During his invasion, Beritra’s forces spilled over the lands leaving havoc and destruction in their wake. His goal in the ensuing chaos was to destroy the seals hiding the lost continent where the Dragon Lord Ereshkigal was imprisoned. With the continent rediscovered, Beritra now aims to discover where Ereshkigal has hidden her powerful Balaur relics to claim them for his own.  However, the breaking of the seals had devastating consequences. The lands surrounding the seals; Tiamaranta, Sarpan, Danaria and Katalam have all collapsed into the ocean, changing the face of Atreia once again.

We are less than two days away from the next Aion expansion, Upheaval. In the meantime, take advantage of our two events, Code Red: Atreia and End of the World, and to prepare yourself for what is to come, read up on our highlights and then experience the Upheaval on June 17, 2015!


Upheaval Sneak Peek: Enshar Flythrough

Residing on the other half of the risen island is Enshar, home of the Tehji tribes and claimed by the Asmodian people as their base of operations.  Explore lush coral-speckled landscapes and towering organic trees that sway on the wind like a jellyfish in the sea.

Upheaval Sneak Peek: Cygnea Flythrough

Take a first look at Cygnea, where the Elyos have occupied their forces. Cygnea, which until very recently was in the depths of the ocean, still houses its abundance of aquatic life and features.  While above land now, you'll still feel as if you're below the waves whether you're fighting the Blackfin tribe or seeking the entrance to the Drakenspire.


Panesterra War Efforts - June 2015

10312014_Elternum-Fortress.jpg

Panesterra is Beritra’s final assault into Atreia and it is up to Daevas to put an end to Beritra’s development of dimensional teleportation technology. With any contested area, the rivalry between Asmodian and Elyos grows stronger. During these chaotic times, additional supplies are being delivered to those who step up to the challenge Panesterra presents. New supplies are heading to the front line. Enter Panesterra every Sunday at 7 PM Server Time and take up arms to claim your hold on Panesterra.

For level 65 players who attend the Panesterra sieges, a survey will be available during the hour of the siege. Effective Sunday, June 7, the survey includes:

  • -    Pure Recovery Crystal
  • -    Ailu Candy (player choice)

 For the unsuccessful server faction, the 100 participating level 65 players will be awarded the following the Monday after the siege:

  • -    51 GP via quest items
  • -    Dragon’s Improvement Box

For all those participating regardless of server or faction, there will be a chance to get a bonus reward.

  • Ten randomly chosen players will get either:
  • -    [Event] Brilliant Ancient Manastone Bundle
  • -    [Event] Brilliant Composite Manastone Bundle
  • Two randomly chosen players will get either:
  • -    Glorious Number One (30 days)
  • -    Flying Crestlich (30 days)

 

Bonus items will be delivered by Monday after the siege. See you on Sunday, Daevas!


Upheaval Arrives June 17

06032015_Upheaval-Date_detailpage.jpg

Mark your calendars! The new free content expansion Aion: Upheaval launches on June 17! This expansion will bring massive and destructive change to the world of Atreia, as Beritra takes the next steps in his master plan.  Long buried in shadowed reaches of Katalam and Danaria, the Sealing Stones hummed with ancient commands. Under the cover of the invasion, Beritra managed to destroy the Sealing Stones. With their magic halted, the land under Sarpan, Tiamaranta, Katalam and Danaria began to quake as an ancient island rose from the ocean. A massive tidal wave crashed into Balaurea and broke apart the Reian lands, banishing them forever to the ocean floor.

Now, Beritra seeks a powerful ancient relic in the emerged lands of Cygnea and Enshar.  With so much already lost, it is finally time for you to face the Dragon Lord!

The task of saving this shattered world falls to you, brave Daevas. But before you face the might of the Dragon Lord, prepare yourself for what is to come.

Code Red: Atreia returns in advance of the expansion, giving players a leveling boost and some free buffs and potions to help them in the trials that lay ahead.

Also today, the End of the World event begins. With Beritra’s arrival, a number of instances will be gone forever. Be sure to get your final runs in and get what you need, as well as maybe a little something extra.

 

For more information on the expansion, be sure to check out the Upheaval site. And prepare yourself! You only have two weeks to make yourself ready.


End of the World Event

06032015_End-of-the-World_detailpage.jpg

Beritra will soon step foot into Atreia through his completed research into dimensional teleportation. The energy of moving across planes and destroying the Sealing Stones unleashed such immense power that some of the zones we have grown so familiar with will give way to Beritra’s arrival. 

With the upcoming destruction of Sarpan, Tiamaranta, Katalam, and Danaria, many of the instances in these zones will be no more. As a last opportunity to explore some of the disappearing instances, these instances have a chance to offer you additional rewards. Acquire a key from defeating the boss and unlock the chests that spawn. Each chest contains rewards ranging from a 1-hour scroll pouches, Omega Enchantment Stones, Enraged Veille’s armor, and more!

 

- How to Participate -

Run either solo or with a group with the following participating instances. Each end boss will have a chance to drop the [Event] Apocalyptic Key or you can buy the keys from the store.  The key is a single drop so the entire party can roll on the item. Once you’ve acquired the key from the boss or from the store, you can then open the chests. It is recommended at this point that you drop party before you open the chests as the group can also roll on the items from the chests depending on the group’s loot settings. Or your group can agree the chest drops will be free-for-all!
