Maintenance September 26

There will be a scheduled maintenance tomorrow, September 26, from 5:30am to 9:00am Central Time. This update will start four new Aion 3rd Birthday celebration events! Thank you for your patience during this update!

Aion 3rd Birthday Celebrations!

In case the giant birthday cakes in Sanctum and Pandaemonium didn't tip you off, it's Aion's 3rd Anniversary! The event to light the cake's candles was just the beginning as tomorrow, Wednesday, September 26, Atreia celebrates with four new events! So come join the party and get some great rewards!

Empyrean Lord Crystals

As long as you are logged in during the celebration, players will receive Empyrean Lord Crystals in their inventory. Empyrean Lord Crystals can be exchanged with Rufois in Sanctum and Klantia in Pandaemonium for form candy, scrolls, house decorations, emotes, a pet cat with a party hat, and more!

Set a magical banquet table!

Elyos and Asmodian chefs Sui and Kelid are tasked with preparing a feast for the big celebration, but they aren't able to make enough food by themselves! Players level 10 and above can help by doing the [Event] Birthday Banquet quest, repeatable once per day, every day for two weeks. Use the ingredients given to you by the chefs to prepare a scrumptious feast for your faction, and receive the Lightspeed Daeva title (+5% speed, +5% flight speed), 24x Empyrean Lord Crystals, and a buff that increases MaxHP, defenses, attack, and flight speed of all Daevas within 100 meters for 30 minutes!

Light up the sky with fireworks!

No festivities are complete without fireworks! Speak with Fireworks Masters Partoo in Sanctum, or Bubanah in Pandaemonium, and complete their quest to receive an [Event] Awesome Firework and 24x Empyrean Lord Crystals!

New Daeva Helpers

Newly-Ascended Daevas can receive a little celebratory bonus from Dwen in the Lyceum of Sanctum, and Aved inside the Great Temple in Pandaemonium! Be sure to speak to them after you ascend at level 10!

Thank you for keeping Aion going strong for 3 years, Daevas! Enjoy the birthday celebrations!

Aion's 3rd anniversary is almost upon us and we are kicking off a month-long celebration starting tomorrow! An event page that details the first in a series of celebrations — Daeva's Day - will be available this afternoon!

We also have a big Black Cloud Marketplace update tomorrow, Wednesday, September 19th!

Nyx's Fashion Show!

Note that I dyed all of the items so that you could see which parts dye. The actual colors of the outfits will be shown on the store pages tomorrow.

Server Maintenance September 19, 2012

Celebrate Aion's 3rd Birthday with the Daeva's Day Prelude event!

Everyone in Atreia is preparing for a big celebration! What's the occasion, you ask? September 22nd is Aion's 3rd birthday! Beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, September 19, we're kicking off a month of anniversary events beginning with the Daeva's Day Prelude!

Decorate the birthday cake!

There's a giant cake in Sanctum and Pandaemonium, stacked high with chocolate, strawberries, sprinkles and frosting! All it needs are…candles! Help put the finishing touches on the cake by collecting Aether Flames from mobs in New Heiron Gate and Ingisson Illusion Fortress as Elyos; and Beluslan Fortress and Gelkmaros Fortress as Asmodian. Both factions can also collect Aether Flames from Sarpan, Tiamaranta, and the Abyss! Additionally, you can purchase Aether Flames on the Black Cloud Marketplace!

Speak with Hapolia in Sanctum or Berdinea in Pandaemonium to trade Aether Flames for different candles to light the Daeva's Day birthday cake!

A rewarding display!

Aether Flames can be traded exchanged for Blazing Candles, Magical Candles, or Spiritual Candles:

  • Blazing Candles triple the leveling speed for you and all nearby Daevas!
  • Magical Candles triple the drop rate for you and all nearby Daevas!
  • Spiritual Candles immediately recover 2,000 DP for you and all nearby Daevas, increase attack speed by 10%, and reduce cast time by 10% for the duration of the buff!
Players can purchase one of each type of candle every few hours—your candle purchase record resets at 10am, 2pm, 6pm, and 10pm Central Time. Each buff lasts 4 hours, and affects all Daevas within 100 meters!

Kick off Aion's 3rd Birthday celebrations with a sparkling cake and get rewards for you and your fellow Daevas!
