Scorching Heats for Aion Event quest

I’ve recently noticed several summer NPCs in swimming trunks. My first impression was – I want a swimming suit for my toon! But I couldn’t figure out how to get scorching heats for this event. Like Serlain said: It isn’t fighting in general, gathering, lava damage, fighting things that do fire damage, or sitting naked in the pool near the summer NPCs.

As you have noticed, the NPCs for the Aion Summer Event are in the capital cities. These NPCs are going to be in town for awhile, but the event itself is not turned on yet.. so… No scorched heat yet! [Trine]

So, I hope Summer Event will start sooooon!

Aion 2.0. Information

You have probably noticed on your NCsoft launcher information that Aion 2.0 update will be ready on 9/8/2010. Although the official line is that this is just a bug, Aion fans seem to be a little suspicious about “extended maintenance”.

Actually this is just a bug with the launcher, there will be an extended maintenance on the 7th of Sept, the servers will be patched to 2.0, – so will game clients. The servers will come up all patched and ready to go on the 7th of Sept. [Faelan]

While you may not believe that this maintenance should not be longer than the 1.9 update maintenance, the good news is that there will be external sources for downloading the patch like Fileplanet, Gamershell, Steam and an Official Torrent.

Also, one of the big questions is will we be able to rename AionPTS to AionEU/US and play?

As with the 1.9 PTS/Live release, its not recommended by us to copy and rename the current PTS client into your live client. [Faelan]
