AION 3.0 Feature Trailer Mounts

With the upcoming Aion 3.0 Content Update, AION EU will receive a bunch of new features and one of the most interesting are mounts. Mounts can be acquired by speaking to the mount merchant or via crafting. There are various differences concerning the rarity and level which mainly show in speed. In addition to the normal traveling speed of your mount, it is possible to sprint for a short time if you are in a hurry.

Available mounts in 3.0:

  • Surfrider: A lively little Mount which reminds of a whale. You can see its bigger brother flying up in the sky of various starting areas like Altgard. This mount can be bought from the NPC and is suited for starters at level 30. There is also a level 60 version available.
  • Sharptooth: Biker feeling in AION. This fancy bike can be crafted and available for players at level 58. With a little bit of luck it is possible to craft a level 60 version.
  • Cirrusspeed: Surf on clouds. This fluffy pillow of clouds can be used at level 30.
  • Pagati: A dragon-like mount which is suited for players that reached the end levels. You can obtain this mount either as a drop from the last boss at Rentus Base or exchange Kahrun Symbols for it.

Aion Housing Tips & Tricks

We thought it would be helpful to post several advices by Bittena of Israphel to help you participate in the latest Decorate Your Aion House contest. If you know any additional Tips or Tricks, please feel free to share it with us in the comment section bellow.

  • The furniture in game is undyable so you cannot change the colors to match. This gives you a real limited set of options to create a theme to the space, and a narrow color palate to choose from.
  • The smaller the space the more limited the choices.
  • A larger space can be broken up with walls and large furniture pieces.
  • Getting a good look is not as expensive as it seems. I only spent maybe 20 million kinah on items. Flooring and Wall paper (and for houses etc outside treatments) are the single most expensive items… but you can use guest petals for a great deal.
  • The traveling shugo merchants in the housing regions offer as much as a 45% discount on guest petal purchased items!! Take advantage of that, just remember they only show up on the 15-17th of each in game month (6 hour real time window) and they seem to be pretty random which of the 8 locations they can go to will be picked.
  • Your friends that take up construction with have nick-knacks that are left over and gifts from running work orders (where my candelabra’s came from) so ask around!
