Aion Truly Free Anniversary Event

The first Aion anniversary starts on April 10th with in-game events. The Truly Free Anniversary event will last from April 10th through the 17th, and players will be able to participate in a special reintroduction of the giant cake and candle event. During this period Aether Flame drop rate will be increased.
 

This week we’re celebrating a milestone in our service- the 1 year anniversary of Truly Free Aion!  Just 1 year ago, Aion shed its subscription model and opened up the world of Atreia to all players for free.  Veterans of the MMO genre know that free can mean many different things to different companies.  Even more recent game conversions advertise free while their service tells a very different story...

Wildstar – one MMO to check out this year

We recently attended a press event organized by Carbine Studios and NCSoft where we were shown, and got to play, Wildstar – MMORPG game coming sometime in 2013.

Aion Guardian General Showdown event

The great news for all Aion fans is that Guardian General Showdown event has additional spawns for each faction in Inggison and Gelkmaros. This event lasts until May 22nd, and offers an opportunity to take down the rival faction Guardian General and obtain great rewards.
 
After defeating the Guardian General, you will receive the same rewards as the Jotun Square battles. There is no bonus participation survey for these additional spawns, but the existing surveys will remain in place for those doing battle in Silentera Canyon.
 

Make sure to form a league before engaging in battle. If you receive a blank loot window after defeating the Guardian General, using the ‘Take All’ shortcut key (SHIFT + Right-Click) to loot the body should give you the correct rewards.

Shugo Kingdom Adventure returns to Aion

Shugo Kingdom Adventure
Shugo Kingdom Adventure is a limited-time instance which takes place deep in the Imperial Tomb. Starting May 22nd, Daevas who’ve reached level 50 will be able to participate in the Shugo Kingdom event and search for special treasure chests.
 
While inside, you will be transformed into a Shugo and your gear and stats are not important for the battle. You’ll also receive special abilities only available inside the instance. The instance requires 2-3 men, level 51-60, and it resets daily at 9AM. The goal is to protect your towers long enough to lure out the bosses of each stage and defeat them. This will get you the keys and entry passes you need to enter the various treasure vaults...
