Pirate Costumes Coming September 18


Avast, ye land lubber! The NA-designed Pirate costume and weapon skins are making its debut and just in time for Talk Like A Pirate Day. On sale after the September 18 maintenance, dress and talk the part of Talk Like A Pirate Day.


On September 19, we will also be observing the national Talk Like A Pirate Day. Join the GMs by showing up and being in your best pirate behavior. Debate the Internet-old question of Pirate Vs Ninjas or just come out to have fun.

From 3 PM to 4PM Pacific time, the GMs will be at the Taverns in the capital cities of Tiamat and Kahrun. Then from 4 PM to 5 PM Pacific time, they will be on Siel and Israphel. Keep an eye out for their megaphone messages to see when they're starting the event!


See you thar, me hearties! Ninjas needn't t'attend.

Leave Your Legacy: Aethertech


We’ve already revealed the Aethertech as Aion’s next new class, but before it makes its way over to the North American servers, we need YOU to design it!

From Wednesday, September 11 to Wednesday, September 25, 2013, players can submit their original concept art for an Aethertech mechanical suit. We’ll choose the best designs to submit to the development team and if chosen, your design could be immortalized in Aion!  This is a design submission, so even if you can't draw all that well, if you have a great idea we want to see it! Creativity, innovation, and uniqueness are what we're looking for!

Remember, this is not a contest! There are no physical or digital prizes. If your submission is chosen, you will get official recognition that your artwork has been incorporated into the game, and you will be given the chance to participate in the naming process of your design once the 4.5 update lauches!

Alchemy Event


For four years now, Daevas have been locked in constant battle for the fate of Atreia. There have been many hardships and challenges, and many great and legendary battles. Countless numbers have been slain on the battlefield, replaced by a new generation of heroes.  The battle continues to rage, and although a major victory has been scored with the defeat of Tiamat, new evils are arising at every turn. Despite the hardships Daevas face, let’s take a moment to remember, rejoice and celebrate as we enter Aion’s 4th anniversary!

We have several events planned out for the entire month of September, and we’ll roll out more information in the days ahead. First up is the Alchemist Event!
