Shugo Imperial Tomb is an instance similar to tower defense games. Your main objective is to protect the towers and hold your defense against waves of enemies that will try to destroy them. You can enter the instance by speaking to Indiana Jonshunerk, who can be found in main Cities.
As soon as you enter Shugo Imperial Tomb you will be transformed into a Shugo and receive special abilities only available inside the instance.
After the latest minor patch on the Korean Test Server, Aion team introduced new Mythical grade wings – Wings of Hyperion. These wings can be obtain as a random drop in 12-players instance “The Katalamize“. The wings are available for Level 65 and some main stats are listed below:
Shugo Kingdom Adventure is a limited-time instance which takes place deep in the Imperial Tomb. Starting May 22nd, Daevas who’ve reached level 50 will be able to participate in the Shugo Kingdom event and search for special treasure chests.
While inside, you will be transformed into a Shugo and your gear and stats are not important for the battle. You’ll also receive special abilities only available inside the instance. The instance requires 2-3 men, level 51-60, and it resets daily at 9AM. The goal is to protect your towers long enough to lure out the bosses of each stage and defeat them. This will get you the keys and entry passes you need to enter the various treasure vaults. Losing a stage will not lose you the instance, but it will prevent you from earning the keys you need to unlock the reward chests at the end!
The great news for all Aion fans is that Guardian General Showdown event has additional spawns for each faction in Inggison and Gelkmaros. This event lasts until May 22nd, and offers an opportunity to take down the rival faction Guardian General and obtain great rewards.
After defeating the Guardian General, you will receive the same rewards as the Jotun Square battles. There is no bonus participation survey for these additional spawns, but the existing surveys will remain in place for those doing battle in Silentera Canyon.
We recently attended a press event organized by Carbine Studios and NCSoft where we were shown, and got to play, Wildstar – MMORPG game coming sometime in 2013. After playing the game we thought it would be important to share our impressions about the game, because Wildstar is one of the few MMOs coming out this year and we wanted to relate what we saw, so you can decide if the game is worth your attention. MMO gamers are spread across their favorite games and when a new contender enters the fray we only give attention to games produced by big studios or backed by a major IP. This year, you should watch out for Wildstar instead.
Wildstar is a game that’s been in production for 5+ years (I think the exact number is 7). Its main philosophy is to “play the way you want to play“. It is placed in a brand new universe where a legendary planet Nexus has been discovered and two previously warring factions are rushing to discover all its secrets. There is a mysteriously vanished Elden race and we also have laser guns with magic and big swords all mixed together with humor and drawing style worth of a Disney movie. It is being made by industry veterans, headed by Jeremy Gaffney, founder of Turbine who had his hands in games like Asheron’s Call, Ultima Online, City of Heroes, Tabula Rasa, Guild Wars and more.
Action oriented combat and skill system with “telegraphs”
Paths – system that puts an emphasis of a certain playstyle: Explorer, Soldier, Scientist or Settler
Providing “elder game” is as important as providing leveling content
Battlegrounds, Arenas, 40v40 Warplots PvP
20 and 40(!) man raiding
Multiple ways of progression (in elder game as well)
The first Aion anniversary starts on April 10th with in-game events. The Truly Free Anniversary event will last from April 10th through the 17th, and players will be able to participate in a special reintroduction of the giant cake and candle event. During this period Aether Flame drop rate will be increased.
This week we’re celebrating a milestone in our service- the 1 year anniversary of Truly Free Aion! Just 1 year ago, Aion shed its subscription model and opened up the world of Atreia to all players for free. Veterans of the MMO genre know that free can mean many different things to different companies. Even more recent game conversions advertise free while their service tells a very different story. We wanted our model to be the best out there, so we gave you, our players, the entire core game with zero restrictions. No annoying upgrades, no trade limits, and nothing hidden behind a pay wall. We also gave you 3.0 and all of its content for free and we’re excited to announce that this June, we’ll be giving you update 4.0: Dark Betrayal Truly Free as well!
To celebrate this milestone as well as the future on Aion, we’ve enabled the popular Decorate the Cake event that we ran last year. This event lets players find flames throughout the world and light the candles on the celebration cake in each faction’s city square. When lit, the candle will give a powerful buff to any player standing near the cake! So gather together, celebrate, and share the rewards!
Event Details: Brilliant Truly Free Candle – 300% XP gain for 4 hours! Mysterious Truly Free Candle – 300% drop rate for 4 hours! Calming Truly Free Candle – Gives everyone in the area 10% attack speed and 10% cast speed for 4 hours and replenishes their DP by 2000.
Flames can be exchanged for candles with NPCs located in Sanctum and Pandaemonium – Just look for the giant cake!
A few days ago, Massively made an interview with Sean Orlikowski, and unveiled some great news for all Aion fans. According to Aion’s associate producer Sean Orlikowski, Dark Betrayal expansion will be released in June for North America. Aion 4.0 update will be the same as Korea’s 4.2 update.
When 4.0 hits here in NA, the build will actually correspond to Korea’s 4.2; our version will start with two of the new classes right off the bat, unlike Korea’s 4.0 launch. Players wanting to test their wings as a Songweaver (the official name of the bard class) or a Gunslinger have only until June to secure free slots on their accounts.
Aion team announced details about upcoming content that we can expect after the Aion 4.0 update. In the first post Aion developers unveiled information about five new dungeons. Some of these dungeons introduce new features. Please remember that any names, mechanics and information are subject to change during the localization and normal update process.
The Sauro Logistic Base
Sauro Logistic Base is a name that you may not recognize right now, should become familiar to you as you adventure through the new 4.0 lands. Gaining entry to this instance is currently dependent how many of the mini fortresses of South Katalam that your faction owns.
During the billing maintenance this morning, an error occurred and the bonus item now being rewarded is 2 Major Contribution Bundles instead of 2 L100 stones. This was not intended.
If you currently apply a POSA card, the code you receive will not give you the reward you are expecting. If you have already applied the card, and received a code and gotten the contribution bundles, you may contact customer service using this webform: https://aiononline.custhelp.com/app/ask
and the GM’s will assist you with exchanging for the proper items.
We are working to resolve the billing error, but it is not simply an on/off switch. I will announce when the error is resolved, so if you have an unapplied POSA card, please do not apply the code until it is resolved.
If you would like to keep your contribution bundles you are certainly welcome to do so. I apologize for the inconvenience!
