'Troubadour' weapon concepts!

NCSOFT Korea released these new concept art pieces of the upcoming 'Troubadour' class's weapons! The 'Troubadour' uses stringed instruments to heal friends and attack enemies! Which instrument will you use?

Aion 4.0 class reveal: the 'Troubadour!'

Greetings Daevas! Presenting the full version of the 'bard' silhouette that piqued your interest, the "Troubadour!" (Name not final)  

(Click to enlarge)

You can tell by her bubbly looks that her concept art and the charismatic gunslinger's concept art were done by completely different artists, can't you? Here's what we know about this new class:

  • The Troubadour uses magical melodies and songs to heal group members, and weaken or attack enemies.
  • Though Troubadours have healing powers, they're not just support! They could be a real force in PvP…
  • Troubadour can be compared to a cross between cleric and spiritmaster.
  • The class's "skill tempo" isn't fast, and though Troubadours are (currently) not a difficult class to play, they can be very adaptable to the needs of the group.
  • Troubadours wear cloth armor.

That's all the info we have for now! What do you think of this new class? Will you play a Troubadour?

Trick or Treat! Get a Harvest Revel gift box for 1 NCoin!

What Halloween treats await inside this black box wrapped with an orange bow? Harvest Revel's no fun without a spooky surprise, but we'll give you a hint: it's a companion to watch over you while trick-or-treating!

Players can purchase a Harvest Revel Gift Box (Asmodian version, Elyos version) for 1 NCoin between now and November 7. This is a one-time purchase, and it can only be used once per account, so choose the character you want to give it to wisely! Happy Harvest Revel!

Celebrate October with the Harvest Revel!

A chill is settling on the Atreian countryside. Sensible Daevas are indoors, warming themselves with a pint of pumpkin ale, but Octobrunerk has been working hard to get everything ready for the first annual Harvest Revel Beer Festival—or he had been, until all the barley disappeared! Octobrunerk has three master brewers standing by to compete for the title of best beer-brewer in Atreia, but they need that barley!

Once per day from October 24 to November 7, players can help Octobrunerk keep the festival on track by hunting mobs and retrieving Fresh Barley from them. Exchange the Fresh Barley with Octobrunerk in Pandaemonium or Sanctum for Dried Barley. (And an additional reward of some Lite Beer!) Cast your vote on which brewmaster you think will win the competition by giving them your Dried Barley; they'll exchange it for a ticket specific to that brewmaster. You can receive a total of 14 tickets, so the more you back a brewer, the more tickets you can stockpile!

Ranking for each brewmaster will be determined after November 7; players will be able to trade in their tickets with each brewmaster for rewards until November 21! Enjoy the month-long Harvest Revel!

Maintenance October 24

There will be a scheduled maintenance tomorrow, Wednesday, October 24, from 5:30 to 9:00 AM Central Time. The Tiamat Treasure Hunter event is ending with this maintenance, and the Harvest Revel begins!

Players level 50+ who received a survey for Siel's rings, please note that if you have not already used them they must be used BEFORE this maintenance period. The survey will not be available following this maintenance, so be sure to use your 5-hour versions of Siel's rings!

Thank you for your patience during this maintenance period.
