Aion 5.3 Launch Postponed to March 15

Hello Daevas, 

During QA testing, we found a critical issue with the new Atreian Passport. Specifically, the issue is with the function that sends all unclaimed Passport rewards to your player inbox. This means that any player with unclaimed rewards could lose out on some or all of their items without an easy means of getting them back. In order to allow time for a fix to be properly developed and tested, we’re making the difficult but necessary decision to postpone the Aion 5.3 launch until March 15.

We understand you’ve been looking forward to this launch as much as we have, and as we work on resolving this issue we’ll be extending the Kromede’s Revenge event for one more week. Additionally, we’ll also hold a bonus EXP event for the days leading up to our new launch date. Click here for full details of the bonus EXP event.

Please hold on to your excitement for one more week. Thank you for your patience, and we apologize for this unfortunately necessary delay.

— Gideon, Associate Producer

Aion 5.3 Coming Soon

170120_AN_5_3_DetailPage_573x203.jpg

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. 

01252017_Tenacity.jpg

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. 

01252017_AbyssEquipment.jpg

Estima
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. 

Atreian Bestiary
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.

Beyond the Windstream – Producer's Letter

Greetings Daevas and Happy Daeva’s Day!

 

As Aion turns the corner and completes its 7th year of live service in the West, it’s as good a time as ever to take a step back and look at where it stands. This past year has not been without its challenges, and we definitely would not have made it through without the loyalty and dedication of you, our players. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you from the entire Aion team.

In this letter, I’ll share with you some of the team’s priorities and plans for the next twelve months. Bear in mind that we’re already working on these as I write this, and on several of them simultaneously – while we might prioritize one or two in the immediate term, none will be neglected. Lastly, this is not an exhaustive list, just some insight into what we are planning for the coming year – as time moves on and other plans become more solidified, I will write more letters to address them.

 

The Long Term

With the 5.0 update just behind us, one of our top priorities is to improve the frequency of our game updates, and improve the communication surrounding them. In recent months, we’ve fallen further behind schedule than we would like to be, and this is obviously a problem. Also, it’s not fair to our players to have to watch those from other regions enjoy an update for months on end, with little word from us about when that update will be out here. To that end, we are streamlining our update process and will be better about communicating with players on when they can expect to see content.

Another major item we have been discussing (and a hot topic in the community) is server merges. While Aion has much to offer, server population has been falling for some time. Those of you who remain are as dedicated as ever and are sustaining the game with your passion and patronage, but we still want the best possible environment for you to play in. Before making official announcements, there are several considerations we need to make – player-side impacts like rankings, housing and game economy, and team-side impacts such as scheduling needs and how this may (or may not) affect the overall schedule of our game updates. We are still in preliminary discussions regarding server merges so we’re not ready to announce anything just yet, but look for this information in the coming months.

 

The Immediate Future

In the coming weeks, the Daeva’s Day events will wrap up, and we will move into Harvest Revel. Popular events such as Alchemy and the Nightmare Circus will return. Moving further out, we look forward to the next update to Echoes of Eternity arriving before the year is out, bringing with it a host of changes to the Arena as well as a level 66+ Dredgion and a new Archdaeva-exclusive crafting discipline. We will post more information as we near the release date, but know that we are all very excited to have you experience this update and the next chapter of Aion’s story.

If you’re looking into jumping back into Aion, we definitely encourage you and welcome you to do so! The success and longevity of the game would not be possible without your continued support and passion for the game.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and we hope to see you in game.

Gideon
