I started playing casually, and right now I have a level 47 Ranger on the Eloyos side.  It's as good as any other theme park game and free to play to boot. 

Will probably stick with it until something new and interesting comes along.

well then u can go back now i guess. they implemented the fast track server where u can play with ppl from all servers without the pvp. the server is available till u hit 50..then u have to lvl on your main server.

OT:

loved the game too. played it from day one till gameforge took it over in eu. terrible company with the worst forum mods ive ever seen.

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.

 

Graphics are mediocre at best. Combat has nothing to do with skill, least not more than any other mmorpg you can faceplant and do about the same dps as anyone else. Unless you're talking about animation cancel, which is a glitch, just one they will never fix(or maybe can't fix)

 

Gliding is fun but to list this as a reason to play? lol

 

PvP is pvp no matter where you go, this game has a shit ton of griefers just like other pvp games, though i'd argue it has more than others since its f2p.

I put in close to a year playing Aion, and it's a decent enough game in it's own right, but the grind out weighed the fun for me at later levels and I lost interest.  I ended up taking a few characters to around 50 but then just burnt out.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

a game thats main advertising is based on the flying aspect, which you can do very rarely. honestly aside from the flying it is just like any other generic fantasy MMO put out in korea at that time, nothign to set it apart other then the aspect whic you cant use very often.

i tried is for a week then went meh, and moved on.

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to
Proper Grammer & spelling are extra, corrections will be LOL at.

If cosmetics aren't content, why don't people demand a cheaper game done in full grayscale?

Aion was the only game that ever gave WoW a legitimate shot of losing me.  I played it exclusively for almost 6 months, across multiple alts.  Spiritmaster, Sorc, Cleric, Chanter...it didn't matter.  In the end, the full +10 pvp griefers ruined the game for me.  High crafting skills, all my houses made up as nicely as I could afford, beautiful wings I'd saved up for...all the cosmetic goodies I could ever want.  That's what I loved about it.  Fort defenses were active and everything (Kahrun).

 

All ruined by my first several hours in Heiron.  The nonstop assassin/ranger brigade had begun in late, late Eltnen...but by Heiron it was simply more hassle than it was worth.  I never logged back on after that.

Grindy, greify and ganky....just what I look for in a game.... ;(  

 

NCSoft will probably kill it in the west when it can no longer bring in some arbitrary amount of money, and shutting it down will make a fiscal quarter look better than it was.    I don't think they 'get' the western gaming scene, hence their reliance on studios of known developers to make games for this market.

 

Interesting Aion tidbit, when talking to a friend who worked on the very early Tabula Rasa development, he identified several elements of Aion that were very, very similar to the original TR approaches.

 

 

If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

Life - the one and only MMO. All the rest will FAIL!!!!

Grid in Aion much more rewarding then grid at GW2. At Gw2 u got most skill unlock at about lvl 35. In aion skill unlock is scaled with lvl. If you haved tried it do it 4.0 is great!!!!!  new classes  new skill system...

Well that sounds great.  Maybe I'll give it another shot.  I'm so bored with other "tab target" MMO's I'm downloading Scarlet Blade.

Aion is a great game, the thing with asian games is that every single asian game will be trashed to the bottom in the EU/US servers, people just don't enjoy asian games and they shit and cry on them. Don't ever, ever expect an asian game to become successful in EU/NA. If you want a good experience in any asian titles you need to play in korean servers, because EU/NA playerbase will ruin the game experience by not playing it as it is designed, making zones deserted and with all their whining. The problem has been around already ~10 years. If you want good experience in a KR game play in KR servers.

I agree I always give props to Aion, played it from launch for like 7 months, prolly won't ever go back, but if you have it in you this game is great. Had some serious moments I still remember. We had some epic seiges, pretty much everything that happened for the first time was an epic battle.

the arena pvp gear is not hard to get. especially if u have friends who help u. i always gone to the arena late in the night and tried to get in with my newby friends and let them win. but even without the help u can get the gear pretty fast.

I don't realy think that happens anymore. Not that I ever cared.

At the moment I'm trying to catch up on an Elyos character (my original was an Asmodian because my friends wanted to play Asmo side) so I am on the fast track server and downing xp boosts like m&m's.

If ESO and archeage don't work out I might just park it here while working bit by bit on my lineage2 character.
