10242014_Invastion-Announcement_detailpage.jpg

The INVASION is coming. Asmodian and Elyos armies, both bolstered by the additions of the Aethertech class, have continued their battle against each other and the Balaur forces. But now, Beritra has marshalled his forces and renews his attempts at conquest. Meanwhile, new lands have been discovered and new opportunities lie in wait for those Daevas courageous and capable enough to rise to new challenges.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve shown you some of what will be coming with this new content update, including:

But there’s so much more to come!

We’ll keep updating this section with links to more of what we reveal in the time left until the INVASION hits the servers. Until then, keep checking back here for the latest information on Aion’s newest content update coming November 5, 2014.


Sneak Peek: New Systems & Changes

This “Fast Forward Friday” we take a sneak peek at various new systems and changes coming with our INVASION update on November 5, 2014.

Flight Bind Points

As part of a few quality of life changes in the upcoming update, players can now teleport to a bind point in certain zones by clicking on the icon on the map. These bind points are located at key locations throughout a zone. You must first discover the area and path before you are able to use the bind point to teleport there. You cannot teleport to another zone, only within the zone. The bind point has a 10 minute cool down but can be used in conjunction with scrolls and the Return skill.

Equipment Purification

As new threats emerge, technology has been developed to combat the Balaur and rival faction. Certain equipment sets can be purified by the Equipment Purifier NPC. Purifying a weapon or a piece of armor requires materials that can be crafted or gathered from the world. When you purify your equipment, you add additional bonuses to the armor stats without any effects to already socketed manastones, godstones. Only certain equipment enchanted to a certain level is eligible, and the piece will lose five levels of enchantment upon purification that can be re-enchanted later.

Godstones Rework

Players will no longer need to visit an NPC to socket a Godstone. You can soon socket your own Godstones, and, to replace a Godstone, you simply socket another on top of it. Since the Godstone NPCs no longer have steady employment in game, they have chosen to retire early.

Illusion Godstones will also be available for purchase for Officer-rank and above. While similar to regular Godstones, these purchasable ones have a chance to be destroyed when in use. When the destruction of the item has been triggered, you will receive a notification indicating the Godstone will become ineffective after 10 minutes.

Beritra’s Invasion Bosses

Beritra Special Forces continued their research on Ide after discovering its power in the Danuar weapon, Hyperion. With ancient designs and parts from the Sauro Supply Base, Beritra was able to create his own Ide-powered weapons to prepare for his invasion.

These creatures are world bosses and will require great efforts from Daevas to defeat them.

Gelkmaros and Inggison

Gelkmaros and Inggison will have new quests for level 65 players, and the zone’s fortresses will be upgraded to level 65. Siege rewards now include Ceramium Medals.

Siege Blessing

A special siege blessing will be applied during sieges in the Abyss, Katalam, and Danaria for those participating in the siege. The blessing will be for the faction at a disadvantage.
