We all have the same questions: where do we go next, how to level quick and easy so we can enjoy the end game content and PvP as soon as possible. In other words, how do we make the level grind easier? This guide is written as a walkthrough for those who are starting anew. Characters in this game level primarily through finishing quests and missions given by the NPCs and by killing monsters. This way, you will follow the Aion storyline and with a few tips and tricks you wont even notice that you have reached level 10 and exited the first land with all quests done and maximum experience collected. This guide is applicable to all classes.
LEVEL 1-3 Akarios Plains
The first NPC Elpas with a blue arrow over his head will give you the quest Sleeping On The Job and you will finish it by talking to the next NPC Mires. Your new quest is Kerubar Hunt and you will finish it by killing 3 Striped Kerub. Kill them and return to the NPC. For the next quest Grain Thieves just collect 4 Kerub Grain Sacks and go back to Mires. With the quest Report to Polinia Mires will send you further down the road to Akarios Village. On this road you will find NPC Kales who will send you to kill Grain Snuffler for the quest The Snuffler Headache . After completing the quest Kales will also send you to Akarios Village to complete the quest Helping Kales.
While you are completing the quests try to collect Aria. It will build your skill level and will assist in later quests. Continue harvesting Aria until your skill is level 10 and then harvest Aria or Apples until you skill reaches 15. A later quest will ask you to harvest Ore which has a requirement of 15.
LEVEL 3-5 Akarios Village
When you come to Akarios Village bind yourself to the Obelisk in the village to easily return back to this location in the future.
The next step is to find your class trainer. Purchase all the skillbooks you can.
If you have enough Kinah find the Weapons and Armor sellers and check for upgrades. Buy bandages and potions it will speed up your leveling.
If you have manastones apply them on your weapon or equipped items.
Once you come to the village collect the following quests: A New Skill, Uno’s Ingredients – you have to kill Pink Beak Airon for 5 Airon meat. From Minalinerk NPC take Abandoned Goods quest which will send you to the North-west part of Cliona Lake for 5 Wine bottles from Wine Casks. If you have followed our instruction you should already have 10 Aria in your bag for the quest Collecting Aria. The NPC Muranes will send you to complete mission quest The Kerubim Threat. While you are finishing quests around Cliona Lake you will find NPC Feira and get the quest To Fish in Peace. Also while you are hunting creatures around Cliona Lake you can get an untradeable item called The Woodcutter Lost Axe. Double-clicking it to start the quest The Lost Axe.
When you complete these quests you should reach level 5. If you don’t have new skill-books return to town and also check for a new weapon or armor as well. Before you leave Akarios Village picking up the following quests: Pernos’s Robe – Acquired from the Armor seller Mune in town, A Book for Namus – Received from the guard Melampus at the North gate of town, Light up the Night – Received from the NPC Pranoa along the road North-East of town.

LEVEL 5-7 Daminu Forest
At the entrance of the Daminu Forest you will find 3 NPCs along the road: Ampeis, Namus and Noah with new quests. Before you start doing the quests inside Daminu Forest try to finish quests Pernos’s Robe, Insomnia Medicine, The Elim’s Message and Light up the Night because these quests will send you back to Akarios Village and Cliona Lake. It is much better to finish these quests first and turn them together then to go back and forth several times.
Ampeis will send you to hunt 8 Shortbristle Bellepigs for the quest Mushroom Thievesand also send you on mission quest Request of the Elim. One of the most interesting quests is The Nymph’s Gown.

New quest at Akarios Village is Polinia’s Ointment. At the entrance of the Daminu Forest NPC Namus will send you to Malponeh’s Campsite to finish A Taste of Namus’s Medicine. At Malponeh’s Campsite you can collect new quest Thinning out Worgs from Tula who will send you to hunt 9 Gray Worgs.
Don’t forget to return to Akarios Village for new skills at level 7, and also new armor and weapon upgrade. Once you get into areas that have mobs that aggro, kill your way through the mobs rather than training/stealthing through. Characters in this game level primarily through kills and you are cheating yourself on exp by skipping these mobs.
