A Glimpse Into The Abyss

A Glimpse Into The Abyss - MMORPG.com

MMORPG.com Aion Correspondent Sebastien Klier writes this look at the Abyss territory in NCsoft's upcomng MMORPG, Aion.

In Aion, after the events that led to the destruction of the Tower of Eternity, the world of Atreia was torn apart and is now divided into Asmodae and Elysea. Between those two parts lies the Abyss, a shattered wasteland containing the remains of the Tower of Eternity, now home to the Balaur, Aion's hostile NPC faction.

The Abyss is one of the game's core features and represents the main Realm-vs-Realm zone. It is accessible for players of at least level 25 and requires a quest chain to be completed before you can enter. The chain is started automatically as soon as you reach level 25 and will take you to your faction's capital city, where you have to take on a few lore-related puzzles and can then choose one out of three different tasks to complete, before you get to take a final test that requires you to prove your flying abilities. Once you gain access, you can enter the Abyss through one of the portals located at your faction's major quest hubs (for example above Verteron Citadel or Altgard Fortress) - the portals are only reachable via flight and will take you to the main fortress of either the Elyos or the Asmodians in the Lower Abyss.
