Aion’s 5.3 update is coming soon. In this update to Aion: Echoes of Eternity, large-scale content is the primary focus. If battling against Ereshkigal forces isn’t enough, the tournament-format Arena of Tenacity will open its doors pitting contenders against each other from both factions, and more!
Battleground Pandaemonium & Battleground Sanctum
With the Aetheric Field weakening following Iluma and Norsvold’s release from stasis, Ereshkigal’s forces have seized the opportunity to further expand her influence. For the first time in living memory, Dredgions have directly assaulted Pandaemonium and Sanctum. In this 384 member PVE instance, Archdaevas must defeat Ereshkigal’s invading forces and save their home.
Arena of Tenacity
In this new Arena, players from both factions are pitted against each other to reach the top spot. Players can queue for the Arena and the system will match players against others in a single-elimination tournament format.
Prime Guardian/Prime Archon Equipment
The new medal rank, Spinel Medals, along with Fragmented Spinel, can be acquired through various PvP activities – PvPvE instances, Arena of Glory, PvP quests, and more. These medals can be used to purchase Archdaeva Abyss equipment from the Hall of Fame/Glory.
Estima is a new item that can be enchanted with Estima Solution or Omega Enchantment Stones. These items can be enchanted up to +10 and up to three Estima can be equipped. Equipped Estima expands your pool of Essence Points so you can further customize your build.
Players can acquire an illustrated monster book when defeating monsters in Illuma and Norsvold. Collect monster portraits and unlocks rewards for completing various stages of the book.
