On each server and faction, we’ll be setting off all three candle cake buff approximately every 15 minutes for one hour. Grab your buffs and continue your adventures or stay and hang out with us for a chance to win random prizes!

Not one to miss a great party, the Wheel of Fortunerk has rolled into town just in time for the 5th Anniversary celebration, and it’s bringing some great new prizes. In fact, this is the largest prize list overhaul in the Wheel’s history!
Those seeking fame and fortune will be glad to see that Palaces are still available as one of the Wheel’s top prizes, but we’ve also got a lot of items debuting on the wheel for the first time.
First among the notable new entries are plumes. The regular wheel can award a +8 Plume, and the Gold Wheel can award an exceptionally rare +10 Plume!
More great prizes have been added including pets, wings, and a new mount. We’ve also updated the Hyperion gear available with the tradable Hyperion’s Mythic Weapon Chest and Hyperion’s Mythic Armor Chest. And, in celebration of Davea’s Day, the Aether Flame is available for the duration of the Wheel’s run. Take a look at the full prize list next to the Wheel to see all the available items.
The Wheel of Fortunerk runs from September 17 until maintenance on October 1. Give it a spin, and see what you win.
With pre-anniversary events unfolding with the Caption Contest on Facebook and Code Giveaway on Twitter, Aion’s 5th Anniversary has officially kicked off. And no celebration is complete without cake!
DAEVA'S DAY CAKES
Two cakes await each faction in Pandaemonium and Danuar Spire for Asmodians, and Sanctum and Kaisinel's Beacon for Elyos. The Daeva’s Day cake with the big 5 candle on top will offer any Daeva a slice empowered with a one-hour 10% item drop rate increase. Come back for another slice when the buff runs out!
Daeva's Day Cake
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 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!

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.
