Our 5th Anniversary is Coming!

09102014_AN_5th_Detail_Banner.jpg

As you might have noticed, we’ve done some redecorating.  We’ve got a shiny new background and a brand-new AION logo celebrating our 5th Anniversary! Yes, Aion is turning five. It seems like only yesterday the very first group of young Daevas took their first tentative steps into Atreia and never looked back.

This is a major milestone, and we don’t intend to let go by without some serious celebrating. Here’s what you have to look forward to:

Along with our website re-branding celebrating this FIVE-tastic occasion, we’re launching the first of our 5th Anniversary events. Starting today, we are running a caption contest on Facebook. Head on over to our Facebook page and make sure you get in on the action there. Be sure to Like us on our Facebook page first!

Next week, things kick into high gear. On Monday, September 15, we’ll be running a Twitter Code Giveaway! Every day until October 1, we’ll be releasing a code on twitter. What’s the catch? One of the digits is missing! The first one to enter the correct code wins the item! So be sure you’re following us on twitter and get ready for Monday!

Wednesday, September 17, things really get rolling. Daeva’s Day, the annual anniversary celebration, comes to Aion. There will be cakes and lots of other great things to help everyone celebrate our fifth Anniversary. And we’ll also have another event starting on September 17, but we’re keeping that a secret for now…

The actual Anniversary date is Monday, September 22, and we’ll be celebrating with our players in-game. Look for more information in the coming days.

We’ll be posting more information about the Anniversary events and related items during the next couple of weeks, so be sure to check in with us so you don’t miss anything.


5th Anniversary Caption Contest

09102014_Caption-Contest_detailpage.jpg

Five years ago, the world of Atreia was opened to all Daevas who dared take up arms to fight both the Balaur and the loathsome rival faction—all in the name of Aion, to bring peace to a world torn apart. This month we mark Aion’s 5th anniversary with a month-long celebration to commemorate this milestone.

As we commence the anniversary festivities, we will be hosting a caption contest on Facebook with prizes including the Porgus Costume Set and the Joyful Daeva Costume Set.

The Alchemy Event Returns

08272014_Alchemy-Event_detailpage.jpg

Everyone knows alchemy is the mythical science of turning lead into gold, and the Suspicious Alchemists are returning to Atreia with their treasure trove. Any Daeva who wishes to dabble in Alchemy can turn lead into a golden key, which can then be used to open treasure chests full of loot. Lead to loot!

Part One: Suspicious Alchemist

Every day starting at 9 AM, see the Suspicious Alchemist NPC for a free [Event] Key Pouch.

The Copper Key opens the Common Treasure Box and the Gold Key opens the larger Premium Treasure Box. Be sure to log in every day during the Alchemist Event and get your FREE Key Pouch!
 

Part Two: Transmuting Keys

Alchemist’s Pouches will be dropping from world mobs and instances. Use an Alchemist’s Pouch to obtain (1) [Event] Lead Fragment or (1) [Event] Alchemic Essence. Combining the two items will create an [Event] Key Pouch.
