More veteran rewards revealed

Those of you playing Aion regularly know about the Veteran Rewards program. It provides you with small item rewards for every consecutive month you have paid your Aion subscription. For 6 months of subscribing you get cool looking lvl 40 Wings. We didn’t know what were the rewards for subscribing past 6 months and that has been announced yesterday. For months 7,8,10 and 11 you get:

  • 5 Recovery Crystals
  • 5 Revival Stones
  • 1   Major Ancient Crown 

The interesting thing is the Crown which can be exchanged for Abyss points, currency used to get PvP gear. Check out the official wiki page of the crown for the location of NPCs that do the Abyss point exchange.

In case you are wondering, for month 9 you will get an Expand Warehouse Ticket along with the aforementioned items – hoarders rejoice! For a years worth of subscription we are expecting something spectacular!

Mo’ Kinah Mo’ Problems

We begin this week with an excellent Aion themed podcast. They have just released their second episode and its a very knowledgeable show giving great tips on crafting, grinding and making Aion kinah the right way. Whether to quest grind, elite mob grind or spend time on crafting to make kinah is all covered in the second episode. Make sure you subscribe to the official “Grind it Out” twitter account or you can subscribe to the podcast at PodOmatic.

In other news, recently appointed Aion’s Producer, Chris “Kinslon” Hager, answered a few question regarding the stun defense system and daily quests coming in 1.9. This is first in a mini series of interviews he’ll be having concerning the soon to be released game update and we’ll keep you posted about sequels. Read the full article here.

Along with 1.9 patch info there’s always a plethora of rumors regarding the so-called patch 2.0 that should bring improved graphics engine and even more content (basically, lots of things seen in the “Vision trailer”). Screenshots of various armor appeared on fan forums. Originating from what seems to be the Chinese Aion site ( we can see new lvl 55 cloth armor as well as undetermined cloth, chain and leather armor that can also be seen in the vision trailer. You can see screenshots in our gallery bellow, while the original two threads where I spotted these are here and here, and there is also a Polish blog that has the screenshots posted here. NOTE: These are all still rumors and unconfirmed by any official source. Please keep that in mind and take all this with a grain of salt.
