Images of two new Aion lands

Patch 2.0 made its appearance on the Korean Test servers and in turn we have loads of media pouring in. Just to remind you, NCSoft plans to release this patch to the Western audiences sometime in September/October (as announced in their Q1 2010 quarterly earnings report conference call ). Lets start with the maps of the new Balaur lands Gelkmaros and Inggison.

NOTE: all of these are speculation. Our Korean is no good and we may have misunderstood a lot of things. We’ll provide you with the images but make sure you take everything with a grain of salt.

Patch 1.9 recap

Public Test Server is already hosting the long awaited patch 1.9. In preparation for its release on the live servers NCSoft released several articles and videos to help you navigate through the new features and content. Official PowerWiki has a page dedicated to showcasing all the new features you’ll have access to in mere days. Kinslon, Aion producer, along with Tamat (Andrew Beegle) and Lani Blazier, made a video entitled Aion 1.9 Podcast we are embedding below. In it they discuss the patch and we can see short glimpses of all the new stuff. They call it the “patch created for players”, as it aims to correct all the things players themselves complained about in the months since Aion launched...

Updated quests for Aion 1.9

Some of you might have noticed that we were down for some 15 minutes today. This was cause by the update of the quests database to the latest patch. Things are still in beta but we wanted to release the information before the patch. We’ll be inserting the quest images (especially for daily quests and such) shortly after. You can check out available Aion Daily Quests on this page. Please let us know if you notice things behaving out of the ordinary.

Aion 1.9 release recap

It’s been more than a week since patch 1.9 hit the official servers and I feel its time to draw the line and see where we stand atm. The patch seems to be well received by the community. I am seeing a lot more activity on my server. The PTS server feels all but deserted, which is good since people returned to their mains. We are working diligently on updating all of our database with the new stuff from the patch. In the meantime here are some stats that you might find interesting:

There are 208459293 experience points more in 1.9 when compared to 1.5.x patch. 704 quests have had their XP reward increased (and 146 have had their XP reduced!). That is ~296106 EXP points more per quest on average. There are at least 200 quests more than before, out of which 52 are the new daily quests...
