Harvest Revel Virtual Pumpkin Carving Contest 2014

10092014_Harvest-Revel-Pumpkin-Carving_detailpage.jpg

All things pumpkin are synonymous with Fall, and this season we’re kicking off this Harvest Revel with a Pumpkin Carving Contest! But this year, we’re mixing things up a bit. Instead of carving a real pumpkin, we have a virtual pumpkin for you to carve! Whip out your trusty image editing software and carve up a pumpkin from the comfort of a squishy office chair. The top three chosen entries will receive (1) Silver Daru Costume Set!

- How to Participate -

  1. Use the digital pumpkin image provided here to “carve” your pumpkin with an Aion theme. It can be anything related to Aion, but please keep within the themes of the game.
  2. You can use any digital image editing program/software of your choice to create your entry.
  3. Email your submission to aion_community[at]ncsoft.com with the email subject “Aion Harvest Revel Virtual Pumpkin Carving 2014.” In the email body, remember to include your character name and server.
  4. Any instance of plagiarism will result in instant disqualification.


The three submissions that exhibit the greatest creativity, originality, and the best representation of Aion will win (1) Silver Daru Costume Set. This 5-piece set can be worn individually or skinned once onto an armor set of your choice. This costume set debuted many years ago as a limited promotion item and has not been available in-game until now! 

The event ends on October 23, 2014. Please click here for contest rules.

Best of luck, Daevas! We’re looking forward to your submissions.

The Hoppening Event

10082014_The-Hoppening_detailpage.jpg

An eerie wind blows through the lands of Atreia. As the Harvest Revel draws near, the borders between realities thin, and ancient nightmares are spilling from the Abyss into Danaria. Deep-seated fears creep from the shadows as the sound of thudding hops ring out in the darkness.

Vampidarus, mystical rabbit-creatures of legend, have been spotted roaming the Abyss and Danaria. While no one is sure of their origin, there are stories of treasures to be gained from collecting and combining Vampidaru’s feet and paws. Daevas, defeat the menace sneaking into Atreia and collect your souvenirs!

- How to Participate - (for Level 30+)

Hunt Vampidarus and open the Hoppening Treasure Chests as they appear in rotation between four different areas. It is up to you to find out where they are! Vampidarus have a chance to drop (1) Left Vampidaru Paw or (1) Left Vampidaru Foot. To find the right pairs, you must open the Hoppening Treasure Chests that spawn near the Vampidarus.

Because the mobs and treasure chests spawn in the open world, you might not be just battling the Vampidarus. Watch your back, because the enemy faction will be after the same thing! You can group with other members, but beware that event items are single drops, and all group members will need to roll the dice for them.

Sneak Peek: New Zone, Kaldor

For the 5th Anniversary, we spent all of September looking back through the past five years. Now it’s time to fast forward and look towards what's coming to Aion! This “Fast Forward Friday” we take a sneak peek at one of the new upcoming zones, Kaldor.

Kaldor roils and groans with the consequences of an ancient mistake. Cinder-ridden forests choke on the ashen reminders of the dangers of Ide. This place is a struggle between a petrified memory of old, and the growth of a new age trying to forget. Anoha, a forgotten Danuar hero, stands at the heart of it all. His ancient blade, sunken into the stone of Wealhtheow’s Keep, may hold the answers to how Kaldor met its end. As lava belches forth onto this Ide-soaked land from the depths, Beritra moves across Kaldor with purpose.
