The Coming Pets of Aion

Pets confined to fetching the morning paper and performing crowd pleasing tricks are now a thing of the past. The upcoming free expansion Aion: Assault on Balaurea introduces an entirely new pet subsystem to explore. You will have access to functional pets capable of storing goods, assisting with crafting, acting as guardians by alerting their masters to nearby enemies, and of course those simply designed to make their masters look good.

The pets system will continue to develop and evolve moving forward, but we're looking at five pet types to start out with: …

Aion: Assault on Balaurea on Public Test Server

The NA Public Test Server (PTS) was brought down this past week to prepare for testing of Assault on Balaurea, the free upcoming Aion expansion often referred to as Aion 2.0.

The PTS database will be reset completely as a part of this, and all PTS characters and Legions will be removed. Keep in mind that the progression rates on the PTS have received a significant boost compared to the rates of our regular servers.

Free Character Transfers Rescheduled

Greetings Daevas,

Following the recent Aion server merges, we wanted to offer a free character transfer service to give everyone a chance to play with friends located on different servers. One of our responsibilities is to provide balanced servers for you to play on. To work towards a more enjoyable play experience we've decided to suspend character transfers in order to re-evaluate our strategy for server balance. Once we've finalized our new strategy, we will again re-enable free server transfers, however with certain limitations to prevent an excessive amount of transfers that specifically contributed to server imbalance.

Dash of the Daevas, Winners Part I

"Business is goin' well, nyerk!"

Those were the words uttered by Ettanyerk, sponsor of the Dash of the Daevas event, when we approached him for the acquisition of a winners' list. He continued to tell us that his expectations for the contest were more than met, and that all of the prizes at stake had been won already. However, he nyerked, some of the larger achievements still linger.

Shugos are known for their not-so-modest negotiation skills, and after promising him dinner, wine and a lift to the Abyss, he agreed to divulge the full list of objectives.
