6th Anniversary Daeva's Day Events


September marks our Aion anniversary. Last year Aion turned 5 and it was fantastic, this year, it is going to be spectacular with 6. We have a lot of events in store for you, Daevas-- ranging from Twitter giveaways and Facebook caption contests, to Davea's Day Cake, instance portals in the capital cities, and more!


Two cakes await each faction in Pandaemonium for Asmodians, and Sanctum for Elyos. The Daeva's Day Anniversary Cake requires candles before you can take a slice. Three different types of four-hour buffs are available, depending on which candle you use! Collect Aether Flames from world drops, from the hidden cakes, or purchase them from the store to trade with the Aether Flame Exchanger NPC, pick a candle with the buff of your choice, and put it on the cake. All buffs will benefit nearby Daevas, and they stack* too!

For the next two weeks, access Seized Danuar Sanctuary, Anguished Dragon Lord's Refuge, and Occupied Rentus Base with a quick visit to the capital cities.



For the next two weeks, Prestige Pack holders earn Prestige Crystals twice as fast, doubling the amount you earn every 20 minutes! That means instead of 12 Crystals a day, you can now earn up to 24! Trade them with special vendors for consumables and other helpful items. Click here to learn more about Prestige Crystals and how to earn them.



During the event period, enchanting armor and weapons will also receive the benefit of only losing one enchantment level should the enchantment fail past +10. This does not apply to tempering accessories and plumes, or amplifying your equipment.


The not so hidden cakes are all over Atreia. If you come across a cake during your adventures, open it for (1) Aion’s Gift Box. These gift boxes give out various scrolls, potions, and a chance for an Aether Flame to use on the Daeva's Day Cake!



Members of the Aion team will be in game on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 to celebrate the anniversary with our dearest Daevas. Details for the event will be available later.

Shugo Emperor's Vault Returns


The Shugo Emperor's Vault is back along with its treasures and raiders! Help our Shugo friends in clearing out the raiders from robbing the vault and the Shugos will reward you with a cut of their treasure!

Shugo Emperor's Vault awaits!


- How to Participate -

The instance is for groups of three, and all members must be at least 40 to enter. When you enter the instance, you and your party members will choose which Ancient Elite Shugo Warrior to transform into. Choose from Brave Templarerk’s Soul, Furious Gladiatorerk’s Soul and Roiling Sorcererk’s Soul. Each class will have five preassigned skills at their disposal when going through the instance.

Your group will have eight minutes to fight and clear as many mobs as you can. Each mob contributes to a points total and your final score will determine your rank. Each rank provides a certain number of keys to each group member, which are then used to open treasure boxes in the Vault!

Potions will be available in the instance and the potions you will get from the instance are:

  • (2) Shugo Warrior's Minor Salve - 20% HP
  • (2) Shugo Warrior's Greater Salve - 50% HP


- Rewards -

After your eight minutes are up and you’ve received your rank and keys, speak to the Vault Keeper who will transport each group member to their own private treasure chest room. Emperor's Treasure Box require one key while the Emperor's Quality Treasure Box need three. Use keys you earned, or pick some up from the store. Rusty Keys from the instance will disappear upon exiting so use ‘em.


While in the treasure room, each treasure box you open has a chance to spawn a Golden Porgus! Defeating a Golden Porgus will spawn an Emperor's Premium Treasure Box that requires seven keys to open. Once open, you will be handsomely rewarded with a random assortment of the event’s top tier prizes. Follow this link to the forums for the full rewards list.


- Relics Exchange -

Before you leave the instance, you have the option of exchanging your AP relics from the instance with Raynerk and Marinerk. Or you can hold on to them and exchange them later if you like! The exchange rate is comparable to the best rates available in game!


- Tips -

  1. When playing as the Templar, you have a heal skill that can be used on any party member.
  2. Cooperation is key to conquering the instance. Try to set up a skill rotation with your fellow players to most effectively defeat the monsters.
  3. Some skills have synergistic effects. For example, the Gladiator has an AoE knockup skill that allows the Sorceror to use an ability that deals tons of damage.
  4. Some rewards are exclusive to certain boxes, so make sure to open those if you are after a certain item.
  5. The higher the rank you achieve, the greater chance you have to see a Golden Porgus. You could even see more than one!
  6. Take advantage of the healing pad in the instance to regain your health before fighting more intruders.


You can enter the instance once a day free for the duration of the event period. For additional runs and keys, Bonus Entry Scrolls and Vault Keys are both on the store! Event ends September 16, 2015. Save the Shugo Emperor's Vault today!
