A Quick Guide to Starter Weapons

A Quick Guide to Starter Weapons -

Picking that first weapon in Aion can be trickier than some might think. Aion Correspondent Robert Duckworth writes this guide to navigating early weapon reward choices in NCsoft's upcoming MMO.

Most MMOs give you a starter weapon based on which class you have chosen and then let you have at it for a few levels. Aion is no different and actually goes through these motions twice, since you become a new class at level 10. Each starter class is given two classes that they can turn into. One of the options will allow the player to continue playing much as they have, a Scout turning into an Assassin for example. While choosing the second option will bring about a new play style.

When you hit level 10, you complete a quest which offers you three different weapons as rewards. Confusingly, the offered weapons are based on your starter class and not the class that you have become. It is important to know what weapon is right for your new class because the game does not do a very good job of explaining it. It is very easy to choose a weapon you do not want to use, or perhaps cannot use. It is not the end of the world if you choose the wrong weapon, but it can make the next few levels more difficult than they should be.
