Eye on Community 10/01/2010

Greetings Daevas,

We hope you are still enjoying your cake, party hats, and summer heat prizes! Good times. The Daeva's Day event still has a few days until the cake is all gone, wrapping up on October 6. And Summer's Scorching Heat is still keeping the temperatures high until October 13!

This week we announced the new siege time schedule, which was introduced in Assault in Balaurea. Siege times for fortresses are no longer random, they follow a specific static schedule. We're currently working with the dev team to improve upon this schedule. If you haven't had a chance to check it out, you can find more information here! This should help you plan your strategy and take the fight to the enemy!

Question of the Week

Lefius of Zikel asks:

"I have a 55 Elyos on Zikel. I got the new In-Game Guide Survey and I'm very happy and thankful, but I have another toon on the Asmodian side in Vaizel. When that toon on Vaizel, reaches lvl 55 can I get the 55 survey again?"

Great question, Lefius! This week we started our new In-Game Guide Initiative. This program provides quick, level-specific details about game content and features. The guides are in an easy-to-use survey format. Each survey also has a level specific gift to make your leveling up even more fun.

Surveys are sent out as you cross a level threshold, once per account, per server. Once you claim the survey and the item inside, that survey for that level threshold has been used up for that particular race and server on your account.

Since it is by server for each account, in your example you could claim the level 55 on your Elyos in Zikel. You could also claim, except for that level 55 survey you have already claimed, all the surveys for the lower levels on another Elyos character on Zikel.

Do you want the Aion team to answer your question or discuss a topic of your choice? Send an email to with your character name, server, and question!
