Our talented players sent in their instrument designs for Aion's upcoming 'bard' class, the Songweaver, for a chance to have their design created as an in-game weapon in Aion 4.0! We received an orchestra's worth of amazing designs, but one really harmonized with the development team: the butterfly-inspired instrument by Sérgio Kishino, also known as Seey on the Tiamat server!
Click the image below to watch a video of the Songweaver's magic played through Sérgio's instrument!
We asked Sérgio more about his design and his character in Aion:
Aion: How long have you been playing Aion?
Sérgio: Tiamat server...I think 1 year.
What level is your sorcerer, Seey?
What was the inspiration for your design?
I had no internet (technical problems) from 12/24 to 12/29, so I decided to draw... @.@"
The 1st step was creating an outfit inspired by Guardian Commander + Kahrun (female cloth), with a blue butterfly and golden details. 2nd step, creating a weapon with same concept!
How excited were you to hear that your design had been chosen?
Unbelievable! Omg, Where are the cameras?! :O
Have you created any other Aion-related works?
Not yet, but it is a good idea! I do have one Kamel, from Lineage 2.
Congratulations again, Sérgio! Be sure to check out more of his work here! We hope everyone looks forward to seeing Sérgio's Songweaver weapon design, making its musical debut in Aion 4.0!
Combat Lockboxes have arrived in Atreia! Enemies all over Atreia have a chance to drop these awesome treasure boxes. To open the box, you will need a key. You can acquire these keys from monsters, other players, or from the Black Cloud Marketplace. You will need to locate a key quickly, because these magical boxes disappear if not opened within 24 hours!
These treasure boxes will drop in most of your favorite hunting grounds above level 30. They also drop at a higher rate in most of the dungeons that you already love! Hunt for these boxes in your favorite dungeons this Wednesday!
Lockboxes are a permanent addition to the world of Atreia! These combat lockboxes will be available throughout the month of February, and look for new lockboxes in March and April! The lockboxes will rotate on a monthly basis, so you will always have more chances at these great items! Check out the list below to see what treasures can be unlocked from these Combat Lockboxes!
A small patch was applied this morning. It includes bonuses to enchanting, changes to rift, arena, and seige times, several bug fixes and our new combat lockboxes!

2013 is the year of new beginnings! Join us for the New Beginnings Event in Aion Ascension, beginning tomorrow, January 30, to February 16! New users get some awesome bonuses from the New Beginnings Event:
First, every 20 minutes that you are logged into game, you will receive an Ascension Crystal, up to a maximum of 12 per day. These can be used to purchase armor pieces, a weapon, or accessories that will put you on the fast-track to getting leveled up and geared up in game! These crystals will show up in your quest cube!
Additionally, new users will get the bonus of a 10% increased drop rate throughout the event. When joining a party, this drop rate applies to the whole party as well! Note – the effect does not stack so having additional new users in a group still results in a 10% increase.
Handy Tip for New Users! The 10% drop rate increase also increases the rate of white drops – which are often just considered “junk.” Be sure to head back to town and sell these otherwise unhelpful items to any vendor! It may not seem worth it at first, but trust me it adds up! If you faithfully sell all of your “junk” to a vendor, you won’t be a millionaire, but you’ll certainly have Kinah to buy things you need and want as you level! Be sure to check out the Fast Track Server, where you level twice as quickly as well!
All items are level 40 items with the exception of the Shrewd Tunic, Flash Jerkin, Mercy Hauberk, and Courageous Breastplate, which are level 30. The level 40 pieces are similar to level 40 PvP (Abyss) gear items. These are to help you get into the game and on your way to gearing up quickly! Remember that the event only lasts for 2 weeks so plan how you want to spend your Crystals wisely!
