We are preparing to bring the webstore online!
If you are experiencing difficulties logging into the webstore, please log into the actual game. This will refresh the authorization server so that you may access the store. If you cannot access the store immediately, give the server a few minutes to update!
We wish to give a heartfelt thank you to all of the Daevas who have supported Aion® in the past few years. With the release of Aion®: Ascension™, we've evolved away from the subscription model and adopted our popular and innovative Truly Free™ concept which gives players more choices for how they play.
On April 4, 2012, your account type will change from standard to Truly Free™ in preparation for the launch of Aion: Ascension on April 11th, 2012. All current, future or recurring billing will be eliminated on April 4! Also, as part of going Truly Free, formerly inactive accounts that are in good standing will be activated at this same time. We welcome everyone back to gear up and get ready for the launch of Aion: Ascension!
Any remaining game time on your account will be converted into NCoin™ at a rate of 40 NCoin per remaining day for which you had already paid. Please note that this conversion may take a couple of days to fully process on all accounts.
Additionally, that NCoin can be used immediately! The Black Cloud Marketplace ™ will open for business on April 4th as well! Our pre-order program allows you to purchase items immediately to be delivered to your character on April 11th when Aion: Ascension launches! Take advantage of ordering in advance to be ready to go on launch day!
The new Black Cloud Marketplace™ and C.U.B.E.™ bundling system will only accept NCoin. Purchasing store items is completely optional.
We are excited to announce the launch of a brand new Aion® server!
On April 4, 2012, 'Kahrun' a new Central Time Zone server - will open up early for name reservations and character creation. Players will be able to log in and reserve their names on Kahrun and then enjoy playing those new characters when Aion: Ascension launches on April 11th.
Kahrun is the leader of the Reian people in Sarpan. It is through his will and magic that the Elyos and Asmodians were able to come together in a reluctant alliance against the Dragon Lord Tiamat. As governor of Sarpan and prime military leader for the push into Tiamaranta, Kahrun represents a new beginning on the face of an old war. But are his hopes and dreams strong enough to put an end to a war that has raged for thousands of years?
Find out on April 11th, 2012 when Aion: Ascension launches!
