Celebrate Solorius Season!

The holiday season is here and we're celebrating with Solorius quests and rewards!

Beginning December 12, 2012, to January 2, 2013, players can find holiday quest-givers Lenatinerk in the main plazas of Sanctum and Pandaemonium, and Smootinerk in Oriel Plaza (Oriel) and Pernon Plaza (Pernon). 

Kill Granker King

Band together with a group of allies and defeat the Granker King to receive treasure chests filled with holiday goodies! The Granker King will spawn in the main housing zones of each capital city. Slay him to receive one of many possible prizes, including Lentinerk's Gift Box (could contain Lucky Wings, a Godstone, a Shugo Lass egg, dyes, or housing decor!); a Solorius tree for your home; or Solorius wallpaper to put you in the holiday spirit!

Capture Grankers

Speak to Lenatinerk in Sanctum or Pandaemonium, or Smootinerk in Oriel and Pernon to accept this quest. Grankers will spawn in locations all around the housing zones. Kill them to earn quest items, then deliver the quest items back to Smootinerk or Lenatinerk. You will be rewarded 5 Solorius Coins for getting rid of the grankers!

Capture Grankers

Lazy Shugo deliverymen are goofing off in the housing areas! Lenatinerk and Smootinerk need you to get them moving, so smack them around until they get back to their leader in the central plaza! Players will receive 4 Solorius Coins for motivating these sluggish Shugos!


Using your Solorius Coins, you can purchase the following rewards:


Please note some items may only be purchased a certain numbers of times, while other items you may purchase as many times as you like.

Enjoy the Solorius holiday events, Daevas!


Massive preview of new gear coming in Aion 4.0!

Greetings, Daevas! Tons of new items are being added in the 4.0 update, so without further ado let's take a look!

Beritra Set

Shadowy Dragon Lord Beritra, master of Darkness and Chaos, gets an inspired armor set in Aion 4.0! To match Beritra's style, there's a chilling element to these designs, yet they are undoubtedly stylish--even sexy! You'll notice the male and female "Gunners" are wearing the Beritra Set from their earlier concept art, and now we get a look at all the armor types, including both male and female "Bards!"

Every Daeva's goal: 65 Abyss items

New level 65 Abyss gear can be earned through Abyss points and medals! A new type of medal,Ceramium, is introduced through Katalam Forts and quests! Check out the new Guardian / Archon Governor Set! 


A challenge for expert crafters: special crafted items!

In Aion 4.0, you can add special materials to normal crafted gear to make special crafted gear! Players will also be able to craft gear with PvP stats!



Top PvE items

A new high-level instance called "Katalamize" will yield "Hyperion" PvE gear! This instance is in a secluded area and will be difficult to get to; expect a challenge if you want to wear the Hyperion Set!


Special weapon skins

There are always unique skins available with every major update, and 4.0 is no exception! Here's a look at two special appearance skins, the flowery Steel Rose Pirate Set, and steampunk-esque Ancient Katalam Set!



We hope you enjoyed this look at upcoming gear in Aion 4.0! Stay tuned for more info on this major update!

Make sure to turn in your Fortune's Favor event Fortune Cards before the maintenance, and give the Wheel of Fortunerk a fond farewell by giving it another spin!

Aion 3.7 coming Wednesday, December 5!


Aion 3.7 is arriving on Wednesday! This update comes with some major features players have been asking for, as well as a few new and unexpected (but awesome!) things:

Special Cube: This long-awaited feature is finally here! The Special Cube is a cube just for quest items—no more quest items filling up your regular inventory! 


Wing Reskin: Ever had to make the hard decision between wings that look good, and wings with better stats? That choice is a thing of the past! Skin your wings and get both the look and bonuses you want!


Composite Manastones: These new manastones have dual properties, like Crit Strike + Attack!

New AP instance: Hexway: A new Silentera Canyon instance with AP rewards!

Patch notes are coming soon! Be sure to check the upcoming maintenance notice for the update time! Enjoy the new 3.7 features on Wednesday, December 5!

New hairstyles coming in Aion 4.0!

Have a look at some of the new hairstyles coming with Aion 4.0! The 4.0 update will have eight new hairstyles available (total for males and females), inspired by current hairstyles popularized by fashion magazines! Of course, these hairstyles needed to be tweaked for Aion, because what looks good in real-life might look very different in-game—and hair accessories and clothing need to be accounted for!

Check out a few of these upcoming styles; would you wear them?
