No, Personal Stores are great Keep them, but alter...

Private Stores Nerfed...

18
The first of undoubtedly many upcoming changes is one which should hopefully put an end to the extensive abuse of private stores as a means to stay online and avoid disconnects. A timer of 30 minutes will be implemented to prevent these shops from being abused as a means to prevent disconnection and alleviate queues. The servers will be down for about...

Personal Stores… I Hate You!...

6
Although I did rather like the idea to start with, yet this Author is resending his approval of NCSofts addition to Aion’s Character Personal Stores.  Here’s why: Now, I’m sure I am being unreasonable.  Now that Aion is live, I wonder how much more difficult this is going to be.  I have walked my character past people hiding behind buildings,...

Comments Off
NCsoft has put up an official worldselect poll up on SurveyMonkey for Aion. According to most sites, the current pull is for Lumiel the unofficial RP world because NCsoft didn’t appear as though they were going to arbitrarily pick one.

A Plethora of Options...

2
There are many options within Aion. Most all are aware of the near indefinite customization of the character creation screen.  Further that, do you become Elyos or Asmodian?  Are you male or female?  Which path of the character classes do you follow?  Which sub class?  Do you prefer the speed questing of solo-questing or chunk EXP questing in groups? ...

Aion within the Ranks of MMO Giants...

26
We’ve all heard it.  Fanboy this, Fanboy that.  “Aion sucks!”  “So and so game is far better!” Lets start with Blizzard’s World of Warcraft, since this seems to be the stick to measure up. WoW was not the first MMO, but was the first to cross market it… made it appeal to fantasy people, kids, nerds, Lore...

Super Serious Review of Aion Beta...

From the author of two “unbiased” reviews  I posted here and here comes the third part. It was actually published several weeks ago but it slipped under my radar: I thought I subscribed to wowfony’s updates but I guess I was wrong. I must admit the third vid is not as entertaining as previous two but I still recommend you watch it....
