Is Aion Under Titanic Takedown Tuesday Attack?

A few minutes ago aion_trine posted a tweet about network outages for Aion, GW and Lineage 2:

We have been experiencing peer network outages for Aion, GW and Lineage 2 . Our team is investigating the source of these outages

Since Minecraft, EVE Online, League of Legends and games site The Escapist are under “Titanic Takedown Tuesday” attack, we hope it’s not the case with Aion.

We are currently experiencing network outages. We do not have an eta as to when they will stop; however, we do expect to continue experiencing them for the next hour or so. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding. Please continue to monitor our Twitter feeds for more information.

Site updated with Aion 2.5 quests

I am very proud to announce that we have updated our quests database to reflect the changes that patch 2.5 brought to Aion. All the news quests have been added and old have been updated with the latest data. I am so very proud to say that this is the first time since this site existed that we have all the German and French quests added as well. Quest text and steps are all translated to French and German, the only thing left in English are custom explanations. The walkthrough images are also from the English version of the game and I hope you won’t mind that...

Aion Item Database updated

I am very proud to announce that we have updated our Aion Item database with 2.5 data, but we did so much more and added new functionality to it as well. First of all we have updated our item tooltips and they look much more like their counterparts in the game. What I am really proud of is the addition of the Your Equipment section and the Equipping mechanism. There is an “Equip” link next to each item and you by clicking on it you add it to, what I would call, your ideal item build. All other items of same type you hover over will be compared to the equipped item in a nice side-by-side tooltip. All of the equipped items are shown in the “Your Equipment” section and there is a permalink that you can share with your friends or post them on forums...

Changes to Aion Fabled Loot Chests

As of 2.6, Named Monsters such as Kromede the Corrupt and Brass-Eye Grogget no longer drop random Fabled weapons or piece of armor, but Fabled Loot Chests which contain one weapon or armor suitable for the character class that opens it.
 

  • Fabled Weapon and Armor Chests can be traded with Group members for a short period of time.
  • However, Fabled weapons and armor contained within Fabled Weapon and Armor Chests cannot be traded.
  • When opening a Fabled Weapon Chest, there are at least two weapons each class can acquire. However, there is a higher likelihood that the most desirable weapons for each class will drop.
