    The endgame pvp is awesome once people got out of the eye and back into the abyss and other zones. lots of world pvp though for 3.0 nc made a bad decision with the eye of tiamaranta in making it the ONLY pvp zone at the start. so it could get zergy

    The reason it seems so similar to GW2 is cuz both are done by NC Soft. also low level ganking is virtually impossible now since the introduction of FTS (fast track server). Basically from level 1-50 in the main zones (so no abyss) you can go in there and get double xp plus its all cross realm too so easy groups for instances and campaigns. Come 4.0, it will go to 55 and include Inggy/Gelk too. also 4.0 is supposed to drop quite soon or so i heard, but for sure this year since they are in full ptr in korea in like 2 weeks.

    I'd give it about 3-4 months til US has it. As for asmos, i quit before it happened but they brought back incentives on the old servers, so full ap sets bonus xp, crafting bonuses etc



    not sure which class you mean by elementalist but every class is strong in their own right and all can solo players if your skilled and have decent gear. As for rangers, they were really weak from 3.0 until they got needed buffs in 3.5 now i'd say they are on par with all other classes again... not completely op like they were at launch lol
    Actually saying they are both done by NCsoft is a mistake, NCsoft has their name on GW2's box but thats all, ArenaNet did all of the development themselves and use their own unique graphics engine that they built in GW1

    I enjoyed a lot of things about Aion, but one thing that really killed it for me was the enforced group quests just to do main storyline quests. I only had one friend that played and she was on pretty sporadically and the server I was on didn't exactly have the best community so I quit around level 30.

    I played it again after F2P, and I still couldn't get into it. It's not a bad game, I'm just not one for high fantasy; if I need a fantasy fix, I'll play WoW since I still have a lot of friends that play.

    I bought the game not long after release, but then realised i couldnt afford to pay for both wow and aion. I think tried it a few months ago and found my server was dead, but that wasnt so bad i hadnt gotten very high anyway. I decided to wait until i get a new computer because even the starting areas look gorgeous, ive got a large backlog of games to play though so it might be a while before i have time to invest in an mmo again. Defo will check it out again though, love dem graphics, especially the character customization.

    Edit : I just watched that bard video, gave me some lols. i wouldnt mind trying it though. Dem graphics.

    But isn't that what an mmo is to group up and kill things you cant by yourself? i will admit before ftp it wasn't that populated but now it really is if you pick the right server.

    Also i play on the eu servers, honestly i don;t mind being a patch behind yes i dislike gameforge but it's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be

    I bought the Aion CE and played for a few months. I liked the game a lot, but I was really just on a wow break. At that time, I had both games on my computer. So yesterday I went to download Aion again and it is telling me that i do not have enough room on my computer? I have added another HDD since I previously had both wow and Aion installed on my computer. I even unistalled wow (which i assume is a much bigger game file) and it is still telling me I do not have enough room.

    Also, when I reactivated my Aion account, it's not listing that I bought the CE on my account screen.

    Has anyone had any experiences like this?

    Giving Aion a go

    So i decided to see if Aion had become any better after few years and the grind seems to be down enough for me to actually play it, but after playing a assassin to lvl 30 im facing a difficult question due to the info sites being very outdated and hard to get stuff out of and the server doesnt seem to be too helpful regarding questions.

    are assassins any good in pvp, will i just cry if i have to do air combat ? my aim is to just do sieges and world pvp after i reach a suitable level, but now im having second thoughts about my Assassin.

    if anyone knows a up to date site for all aion knowledge that would help as well
    THIS ABOUT DRUID! druid is most fast in the yellow cat. how catch yellow cat when so fast? i try BUT NO VERY SPEEDY! i need the help against druid. please blizzard mans make not more power on druid :*(

    Are Sin's any good at PvP? Dude they are ridiculous!

    But they are dependent on two things, player skill and internet connection. Yes, if your internet connection isn't top notch you will be hindered as a Sin.

    you dont need to sound so surprised :P im lvl 30 what do i know, how about the air combat, i remember assassins being the compost of air combat like a year or 2 ago

    "edit" also whats concidered top internet connection? i rarely bother to check that stuff if the games running fine

    Air combat for melees was only really poor due to the problems with server lag on release, they hugely upgraded the servers like 6months in which completely eliminated that. Also most PvP now is ground-based instead of air-based.

    excellent i like these answers

    Well I understand your concern about combat in flight, but ya a little surprised because Sin's/Rogues are PvP centric classes no matter what game you play.

    I have given it a try after it went f2p.
    lasted ~2 hours. too old, too ooooold. rip.

    I still play aion. I like the pvp side of it (which is basically all of it). Its basically what wow always tries to be. For pve though it blows chunks.

    Played it the week it went FTP. Uninstalled it after a couple days because I couldn't get back into it. I got to level 43 when it was first released but playing it by yourself instead of with friends just made it a droan. That goes for most games to be honest though.
