Atreian Stock Market Report — October 2011

Greetings, Daevas!

This is Luichinchinnerk from the Black Cloud News Network with your October analysis of Atreia's stock market.

Prices for the most commonly traded commodities are still down, as the influx from the Double Drop Rate event continues to work its way through the market.

The first items we will look at today are Gold and Silver medals. Generally, the prices of these medals remain stable due to their nature; however, this month has seen a slight dip in value. This shugo feels that although the prices for medals are lower than normal, this is not an indication to invest heavily in medals, as the potential for profits is at best marginal.

In good news for crafters and morphers, the price of Magical Aether has dropped significantly over the past month. Despite its lower than normal price, Aether remains a valuable commodity that will continue to sell briskly.

Finally, this is the time to buy end game scrolls such as Greater Running scrolls. Because of the number of scrolls brought by the Pumpkin King, scroll prices have plummeted to record lows. Take advantage of these great prices while they last!

As always, Luichinchinnerk reminds you that Daevas who
play the stock market take a risk. This bear market might
seem like the perfect time to buy, but a Daeva
could still end up with NYERK! Akakakakakak!

Name: Ullona
Server: Vaizel (NA)
Faction: Elyos
Legion: Infusion
Class: Sorcerer

When did you start playing Aion?
I've always been a bit of a graphics nerd, so when someone told me about Aion back when it was still in beta in Korea, I went straight to YouTube and saw a lot of the conceptual videos. The graphics had me hooked, so I continued to watch as the game progressed in development.

First Sematariux Kill in the West!

We interviewed Mortred, who lead the first victory against Sematariux, read below to find out more about the battle!

Which legions were involved? How many people total?

Many Legions were involved in this raid. We were more concerned about earning the first North American Sematariux kill than we were about forming an elitist group of only certain Legions. As long as people had a certain gear requirement, could understand English on Ventrilo, and were competent players, they were allowed to sign up for the raid, if their class wasn't full.

Atreian Stock Market — September 2011

Greetings, Daevas!

Today is the sixth installment in our series about Atreia's stock market. Let's delve again into the financial wizardry of the Trade Broker.

The current market is a bull market, due to the massive influx of items from the recent Increased Drop Rate event. Item prices across the board will be slightly lower because of the increase in supply, while demand has remained static. We expect prices to return to standard levels within the next few weeks.

One of the items that has dropped in value over the past month is fluxes. Because of a massive inflow into the market, flux prices are half of what they were last month. Wise Daevas might stock up on high-end fluxes while the price is low.

The price of Manastones has remained relatively stable despite the increased drop rate. This is most likely due to the fact that, while the supply of the manastones rose with the increase in drops, so did demand as Daevas acquired new armor and weapons at a faster rate than normal.

The sale of Stigma Shards increased slightly this month, but the price has remained stable. This shugo feels that the price of Stigma Shards will rise slightly as the supply decreases, but not enough to warrant investment for profit.

Luichinchinerk reminds you that Daevas who play the stock
market take a risk. It may seem that we're in a bull
market, but a Daeva could still end up with NYERK.

Legion of the Month — September 2011


Name: LeftBehind
Server: Zikel (NA)
Faction: Elyos
Brigade General: Sweeeety
Centurions: Skankz, Yzma, Malael, VainCustodia, Redpoppy, Ayelanna, Arrio, Akista, and Firewalker
Legion Created On: 04/09/2011

How did LeftBehind start?
I was in another Legion with some friends, and after most of the Legion moved on—including the BG— we were kind of left behind, so to speak. We decided we needed to make a new Legion so we could still hang together, and the name LeftBehind suited us!

Player of the Month — September 2011

Name: Harleykin
Israphel (NA)
Legion: Royal Flush
Spirit Master

When did you start playing Aion?
My husband introduced me to Aion back in September 2009, when he was playing the beta. This is actually my first MMO. I've played a few FPSs and RPGs over the years, but I was never really interested in MMOs until I saw a bit of Aion's game play. After watching my husband play one weekend, I knew that I had to try the "pretty game." I started playing during the third closed beta and fell in love instantly. Since then, I've enjoyed every minute of my time in Aion.
