Steel Cavalry is Live!


Steel Cavalry, the latest free expansion for AION, is now live!  Only one question remains: are you ready?

Are you ready to become an Aethertech and learn to pilot a Bastion, the most fearsome war machine ever to march across the landscape of Atreia? Are you ready to take on the new challenges of the Illuminary Obelisk and the Iron Wall Warfront? Are you ready to get a new hairstyle? We understand if you’re not, these are daunting challenges left only for the brave.

OK, we’re only kidding! We know you’re ready to experience all that Steel Cavalry has to offer. But forewarned is forearmed, as they say, and we want to send you into battle with the best possible chances for success.

Here are some things you need to know before heading off to join the Cavalry:

  1. The Steel Cavalry website details some of the new information, so check it out if you haven’t already.
  2. We have some helpful information on Glory Points, the instance entry changes, and the latest seige schedule.
  3. The Asmodian Initiatives have been updated to include rewards for Aethertechs. Be sure to check it out.
  4. We’ve also got a new contest up and running: Server First: The Aethertech Challenge. Not for the faint of heart.

Good luck Daevas! And try not to step on any of the wildlife with those Bastions.

Server First: The Aethertech Challenge

Prepare your Bastion because becoming the first level 65 Aethertech on your faction and server will win you recognition and a handsome prize! If you’re up for the challenge, get your Aethertech ready because once the servers go live, it will be a race!

To be considered for the event, you just need to create an Aethertech and get it to level 65. However, using Secret Remedy of Growth items will be grounds for disqualification. Any Terms of Server/User Agreement violations will also result in immediate disqualification. We know it won’t take long for some of you to reach level 65 but you have until February 7, 2014 to be considered for the event. After February 7, we’ll double-check, triple-check our data to find each faction and server firsts.

There will be eight winners, one winner per faction per server. Winners will receive (1) Wild Kitter’s Cipher-Blade, which can be worn as a skin by visiting the Item Remodeler in the capital cities.  

Official winners will be announced on February 13, 2014. Please click here for the official rules.

Best of luck, Daevas!
