The graphics are great.

The fighting mechanics add a touch of skill to every mob fight.  If you time your attacks at just the right moment, You can do larger amounts of damage.  This was originally thought to be a glitch, but is actually as intended.

When you are going down a hill, you can spread your wings and glide.  The satisfaction of the flight mechanic hits on something no other game even tries to touch.

The PvP is vicious, and starts at about level 25.

Anyhow, yes the game is a little grindy, they actually want players to know how to play their classes before engaging them in PvP and endgame content.

OK So, the game is free, if you haven't tried it, go download it.  With the dribble being fed to you with the recent titles, I know you don't have much better to do, heck you might stay.

There's also still multiple servers, which all have a population too large to allow for mergers, which means the game is healthy.

Good luck hope you give it a try.

I played for quite a while when it first came out.  I never got that far with any of my characters, because it was a huge grind.  I came back for a short time when they promised that things had changed, but level 9 pot crabs still took your full rotation to kill.  They are said to have mostly eliminated all the ganking that happened around Eltinen (sp) though, which is good if it's true.  I had no problem with the graphics or the combat really, but it's a little too "Korean" for me, in the sense that it takes forever to get anywhere.  To some, that might actually be a good thing.

The one thing I did LOVE about Aion: Polearms.

Actually I wish I could play it as I did buy this game at release. Sadly, I live in the EU and when I last checked there were tons of issues with EU servers. I think i was unable to get some sort of real value for the fact that I actually bought the game in EU and the f2p structure there is awfull.

Can anybody inform me if this has changed?


Edit: Yep now I see, basically having bought the game only gives you verteran status. Which is only mildly better than f2p. Essentially you gonna have to pay it seems. This does nto have to be a problem, its just that i heard very bad things about the EU servers.

I tried to play again a couple of months ago.  If I couldn't handle the original EQ XP grind, I sure as heck can't handle the current Aion XP grind.  If the quests felt more involved and the world weren't so static, I could probably tolerate such a snails pace, but it isn't.  I do like the pace of combat though, it gives you time to make up for mistakes and allows for changes in strategy mid fight.

Yeah, Aion's not a bad one. One of my most memorable moments in MMO is the infiltration quests in Aion. Wow, those are heart pounding and can sometimes be real hilarious when you jump on an unsuspecting enemy or when they discover you and make a party to hunt you down. Haha.

I'm just playing GW2 at the moment, I may go back to Aion depending on what MMO is available once I'm done with GW2.

The grind was awesome at launch, when they went to F2P they nerfed stuff way too much and made some parts of the game pointless.

I pre-ordered Aion and played it from day 1, loved it 'till lvl 30. Then came the Abyss and PvP. This was the point i figured western gamers don't have a culture of playing in a group like they have in Asia. I was questing / grinding at the same spot with 2 other players from same faction than me, yet this lone enemy took all of us one by one, because they refused to play as a team and help each others. Only way to gain exp and farm drops was to find a hidden spot where you couldn't be found by the enemy.

Also, there were too few dungeons and i didn't like how they played at all. Didn't really expect WoW (vanilla) -like experience but the overall feeling was underwhelming at best.

I tried Aion again when it became F2P, and found it too fast in terms of exp and loot gains. Again, the cutting edge was the Abyss, but it was a fortress siege this time that made me quit the game. All we saw was a huge red carpet of names, that rolled down to the boss of the fortress, and massive lag. It was like an unstoppable force that steamrolled through my fellow faction mates. I bet there must have been a whole big guild or even more at once taking down our fortress.

I don't really like instanced PvP, but this was just insane and not fun at all, and should have been instanced in some degree.

The flying thing is a massive gimmick. Some classes become completely unbalanced as soon as you take flight. Otherwise, it truly is your standard MMORPG with a flying combat gimmick. Also, I'm not a big fan of PvP so no big draw there for me. I played if for a couple weeks and glided down a couple hills only to get stopped by gravity. Character progression and advancement is standard, nothing new. Combat techniques are old and worn out. Graphics are nice but far from making up for the rest of the game just being lack luster.

That's why I don't play Aion.

I played WoW up until WotLK, played RoM for 2 years and now Rift.
I am F2P player. I support games when I feel they deserve my money and I want the items enough.

I quit because of greifers and the grind.

Yes PvP "starts about lvl 25"...lvl 25 vs full geared lvl 40....

Ditto, I din't mind the grind but as soon as I hit 25 I was getting ganked by 40's when I was questing so often that I hung it up. I would still be playing if they had a pve server to lvl on then transfer to a pvp server.

Played it for several months starting at release. The flying and gliding were incredibly satisfying, as much as any single-player game I've played... which is REALLY quite the accomplishment, now that I think about it. The music and visuals and character creation were all decent. I was fine with the grind even before the first patches they made to tone it down. The luck-based crafting made it worthwhile to be a crafter, though there was also a massive botting problem that NCSoft had no interest in stopping. The invasion PvP was pretty unfair and the small-scale PvP seemed unbalanced towards characters that could move around faster. And while the 200 vs 200 Abyss fights were something really fun to experience, the insurmountable technical hurdles took a lot away from it.

There were enough things about it to keep my interest to the level cap (originally 50) but I couldn't get excited over the prospect of just doing Abyss PvP and quit shortly afterward. I don't regret the time and money I spent though, and I find myself missing the world from time to time.

Played it at release. Neat game, but endgame PvP is far to gear and consumable based for me to enjoy, and my characters likely considered undergeared at this point.


I do think I liked Aion overall better than Tera though. Zones were a bit more interesting, and I liked the leveled Rifts better than just FFA ganking.

I bought the game when it was first released and didn't enjoy it at all.  The box is lurking in the back of a cupboard somewhere.  Typical stale, unremarkable, grindy MMORPG.

i like the art style in AION and i love my low level character but when i log in i get sick of the quest grind so i just dont log in if i know ill quit 20 minutes later.

Same quest grind as in all other mmos but the questing in some of those mmos feel beyond boring and Aion is one of those. The same happens to me with Tera and Rift.

Bought it at the EU launch & still have the CE poster on my wall and the plastic statue gathering dust somewhere -- unsubbed within 6 months or so through a combination of (a) net lag making the game unplayable (b) hitting a grind wall for levelling / gearing / crafting and (c) discovering I really didn't like open-world PvP, and that as a primarily PvE player, "PvPvE" meant "getting regularly ganked while questing as soon as you leave the fortress in the lvl 21+ zone" (I gathered that for primarily PvP players it meant "having to grind PvE content endlessly to get the gear you need to have a chance in high end PvP").

After it went free-to-play I went back to my old character again for all of a few days, and stopped playing on the EU servers within a week or two owing to dislike of Gameforge's handling of the whole thing, rerolled on the NA servers and played on and off for a while, getting a few characters to lvl 30 and again hitting a point where any further progress seemed to involve repeatedly running a somewhat mediocre dungeon that I could only get groups for on my cleric.

Don't really regret buying it or playing it, a lot of the lower level content I found fun -- but I've pretty much moved on now.

It still has my all time favourite character customisation of any MMO or single player game I've ever played.

I dislike Tera and Rift for the same reasons, too.  Completely uninspired game design.

I played shortly after launch. Got tired of being owned in pvp.  Tried every game on the market, then revolved back to this one.
