Tuesday funnies and some grind tips

Published by at 8:45 am under Aion,humor


I am not a fan of large gaming network sites. They tend to be to impersonal. They tend to put their heart into the game only if its very successful and pays them big bucks. You can see bursts of activity on a particular subject when most advertisement bucks are spent and then everything seems to quiet down. There are, however, some high quality writers engaged in this process and they write for only the biggest networks out there. Great writers = great articles. I came across two very fun articles at MMORPG.ocm and TenTonHammer.com that every Aion player should read in their spare time.

MMORPG.com Aion correspondent, Joshua Price, writes a list of 8 interesting ways to kill another player in the game’s PvP combat. With sentences like:

“… when that player meets you and cannot speak to you since each faction’s text appears garbled to the other, he’ll try to communicate to you in the next most effective manner: by hitting you.”

you know you’re in for a good read. In the meantime, TenTonHammer allowed itself to contemplate about Aion’s next expansion. Game being barely a month old in the western market makes us wonder: “What were they thinking releasing an article like that so early?”, but it turns out to be a very fun read:

“A constant refrain of the fantasy genre is to have an ancient evil spring forth and threaten the very existence of all in a realm. Say it with me, “You shall not pass!” With that out of our system, let’s review how an ancient threat may come back to haunt the factions already in turmoil in Atreia.”

On the other side of the mmorpg journalism spectrum are the mmorpg and Aion fan blogs. Keen, of the Keen and Graev dynamic duo, writes about how he finally found his groove in Aion once he started grinding. For those of you QQing about grind feel free to read his article, you might discover things you didn’t know before.

I wanted to pimp this little Aion fan blog for days now, because wife and I are at about the same stage as these two – Eltnen/Theobmos. Although the article is not much of a read, the screenshot provided mesmerized me for some reason. Go visit Aeroangel’s and Kryss’ of Elyos/Triniel blog here.
