Recently MMORPG.com's Garrett Fuller had the chance to sit down with Aion associate producer Sean Neil and community manager Andrew Beegle. They spent time talking about Assault on Balaurea, the first Aion expansion that was released yesterday with topics ranging from the new pet system, flight and challenges thrown at players in Balaurea. Check it out!
What part of the new pet system are you most excited about as a player of Aion, not just a developer?
Sean: In essence, I just love the idea of usable non-combat pets. But in particular, I’m really looking forward to using the “Signal” Pets, which will alert you when an enemy player is lurking about. There’s few things more defeating than getting ganked while you’re trying to level your Essencetapping skills on some plants. It’s also awesome that we get to switch out pets on the fly, so there’s no having to go through some long process of weighing out which pet is best for a particular situation. Just summon the guy you think you need, and change them out as necessary!
