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.

Roleplaying Legion Faire

Legion Spring Faire

Roleplaying community on Lumiel is hosting a roleplaying event on Sunday May 16 with the purpose of recruiting new members to RP Legions. The whole event is organized by members and it will take place in Sanctum on Sunday, May 16th @ 8pm CST (6pm PST, 7pm MST, 9pm EST). To read the full announcement please visit the forums.

Here’s the most important info:

What: Role-playing legion “recruitment” event, in support of the growth & longevity of Lumiel’s Elyos RP legions
Date/Time: Sunday, May 16th @ 8pm CST (6pm PST, 7pm MST, 9pm EST)
Location: Sanctum, Elyos Square

Why: Meet & Greet for role-play legions and interested recruits to get together and to interactively learn more about what RP legions are active in the Lumiel Elyos community and what niches they fill. This is also a great opportunity for RP legions to better get to know each other and network a bit.

Faire Contacts: Katriel & Teuta
(Interested in helping? We will need help spreading the word and with contacting RP legions with invites. Please PM or /whisper Katriel)

Channels: Join the following RP Recruitment Faire channels to hear each guild give their 1-2 minute “OOC” pitch describing their legion. Registered legions will be given the floor to speak in alphabetical order, and will be given a brief amount of time following their pitch to answer OOC questions. You can find them at their “booth” for further, more detailed Q&A as well as for RP interactions with them.

/join RPLRF-E for the duration of this event.

Double XP weekend and patch 2.0 notes

For whoever is not playing on the quintuple XP PST server you will be able to enjoy increased XP gains throughout the weekend. This has become a regular thing now, to have a double XP weekend every two weeks. I wonder if this will continue once 1.9 hits live. I guess it depends on how big of a XP boost the patch will introduce. Anyone that is playing on the Korean servers has this in formation perhaps *starts digging through forums and google translator*?

While you wait for the double XP weekend to start you can check out the Initial Patch 2.0 Notes. The thing is humongous and gives all the information we hoped for. There will be 2 new lands (for each race one) that are Balaur themed. The level cap goes to lvl 55 with new skills and Stigmas. We get a new “ground” Abyss PvPvE land and instance (another Dredgion). There are 6 new instances including single player instances for lower levels and some 6 and 12 man instances. The instances will have easy and difficult paths and these will determine the quality of loot. A functional pet system is introduced with pets that can be used as storage, scouts (for PvP), for getting crafting materials (when fed they produce a random material) or a combination of all. You can read the full patch notes on the official site. I’m copying them to our Patch Notes section as well, but it will take some time…
