    As usual, we get about as much info on upcoming stuff as watching a poorly made commercial. This game is EPICFAIL due to the vagueness of any online guide. There is NO detailed guide online, and even their own guide doesn’t even tell you as much as your in game quest screen. This game is very 1 sided to those who PTW thru the blackcloud marketplace as you can buy things that would take months in game to earn. The amount of private messages daily from kinah sellers to their website is also fail and makes me think that they allow this to go on while punishing those only who buy it not those who sell it. You WILL lvl faster than you aquire the appropriate gear for your lvl so dont even bother buying anything until lv60. You cannot target even remotely well in this game, there is no way to choose the target you want in a group of people and theres no way to know who is 25m away casting a spell on you. Magic is too OP in this game if you want to pvp up to general be a sorc, chanter or spiritmaster, the others will struggle at pvp unless in groups as magic hits 5x harder than melee and casters get tons of immobilize spells. Aion 3.5 is nothing special a new instance woohoo im pretty sure its just an update for them to add more stuff for those who pay to win. I had hope for aion but its gone now and i am waiting for a new mmorpg to come out so i can leave this in the bad memory department.
