Ask Kinslon #2: 1.9 Arrives in May!

Ask Kinslon #2: 1.9 Arrives in May! - Aion - MMORPG.com

The second "Ask Kinslon" interview is now available on the official Aion website. The interview series features Aion producer Chris "Kinslon" Hager answering questions regarding the hotly anticipated version 1.9 update.

Getting right to the point, the interview's introduction reveals that version 1.9 will be hitting live servers in the West sometime this May.  The rest of the interview focuses on the Two-Handed Armsfusion and Mist Item Rental systems coming in 1.9.

Aquilanius: How does this system differ to the Daily Quest reward rental system?

Kinslon: The items you receive from the daily quest reward system are rarer and have a wider variety of time limitations (3, 7 and 14 days). For the longer time lengths, it will take a lot more daily quest completions to be able to get these. The Mist Rental weapons are all 14 day weapons and are available every 5 levels so players can use them at a wide range of levels. Also, they are great for players who want to rent a good weapon to power through a weekend or instance instead of completing several daily quests to get the higher stat weapons or paying potentially a lot more for a weapon they would shortly outgrow.

Aquilanius: What are the limitations of the items?

Kinslon: Items from the Mist rental shop can’t be stored, sold or traded, and will disappear once their time has expired. They also can’t been enhanced in any way (enchants, godstone or manastones can’t be added).

Aquilanius: What are the stats and quality of the items? Can you give us a few examples?

Kinslon: The stats and quality of the items range depending on level, but all are of Heroic (blue) level. The specific stats will vary from level to level, but below is a couple of examples of the Mist items. It’s important to note that all armor/weapon items within the same level and type are the same price. For example, you’ll pay the same amount for a level 35 Mist cloth Tunic as you would for a level 35 Mist Breastplate. The same is true for weapons. (Please note these prices will vary as the influence ratio for each world changes – similar to current item prices on the live servers.)
