Hey there, internet!
Any MMORPG-people here? Well, I enjoy them myself, too, sometimes. Sadly there comes a time when you have to take a break or maybe leave something you enjoy behind. I noticed recently that I don’t have enough time to actually spend on AION, when I am on I feel behind, need quite some time to get used to all my attacks and get back into the game and while doing that I realize how afterwards I don’t have enough time for everything else I enjoy or for everything that simply needs to be done. So since I have a lot of interests it seems I will have to at least take another big break in that game hoping that one day I will have enough time to jump back in – so goodbye for now Zombat, everyone on the Siel server and goodbye to all the nice people I’ve met in Pitch Black legion <3.
But now on to all those people who actually do have enough time on their hands! AION as said is a MMORPG / PVPVE by NC-Soft where you first decide on a Fraction (Asmodians, dark winged, might seem ‘evil’ at first sight from Asmodae – or – Elyos, white winged proud Daeva’s from Elysea, sadly youre not allowed to chose Balaur) then you have the 6 primary classes that split up at level 10 when you ascent to a Daeva (and are able to fly!): Warrior (Gladiator/Templar), Scout (Ranger/Assassin), Mage (Spiritmaster/Sorcerer), Priest (Cleric/Chanter), Bard (Songweaver/no second class yet) and Technist (Gunslinger/Aethertech). Each class of course has different choices for Weapons or Armor – different in stats that still can be improved or skins that of course can be changed, too. Different atacks or heals/buffs that by now are available as soon as you reach a certain Level, plus some that you need the Stigma Stones for and where you have to decide on how you prefer to play your character.
As said you ascend at Level 10, don’t worry low Level means safe zone at first. You have your main quests and always enough other quests to be able to level up fast AND to not get bored. Even at max Level there is always a way to improve your character (crafting, gathering,…) and equipment (enchanting, different stat changing stones,…) Or a few quests left to do, doing some PVP or PVE/PVPVE instances on your own or with your friends or with the entire Fraction to get hold of Forts and Camps and whatnot to get better influence on your Server or to be able to do the Instances/Quests in that Location.
And yes, Aion is free to play, you can buy a Prestige Pack (which is some kind of Premium Account) or other Items from the official Shop that might add a bit of extra fun or might help you ingame but actually none of that is really needed and most of those things you can also buy ingame at a point without spending real money on it…
So, have you tried AION or maybe there is another Game you really enjoy or did enjoy at a point? Have a nice evening!
