    Tried to go back to Aion but its impossible to create a character. I have had the game installed for 2 days now and cant even play because every single character name I have used since I started playing MMOs 15 years ago is taken. The shitty thing is they are all level 3-7 characters that probably havent been played since launch and when I petitioned the GM refused to free up the names like they will in WoW for inactive characters. The guy that responded to me was so damn stupid he actually said "send them an in game mail and ask politely if they will let me have the name." Really genius? How the hell is some guy that hasnt played in 3 years going to see that? Have been through about 30 names so far I guess eventually I will get one that works.

    At least Tera and also GW2 let you use last names. This is just getting retarded. 9 million players in WoW and no matter how big the server I played on (Illidan, Blackrock, Mal'Ganis, Stormrage) I could use any of my 4-5 names I always use. But a game with maybe 100k people and all of them are taken. I dont get it.

    I think naming is bugged or something. I found a random fantasy name generator online to see if maybe that would work and again every single random name it spits out that I like is taken. I switch a few letters around...still taken.

    Anyone else think they should implement servers for Oceanic players on the North American client? Ping is extremely depended on to perform at your max capability. It feels like I'm on an extra attack speed scroll when I get a 200ms difference using my ping program, I envy all these American players that PvP with ease because of ping below 150

    I just re-installed it today and I've got questions if anyone could give me a hand.

    A. What's this about a "fast-track" server? I haven't seen or read anything like this.

    B. I bought a digital deluxe or collector's edition when the game launced in 2009 - I got special wings and some other stuff I believe - is there some way to get that stuff on my new characters? I know my existing guy still has his but I don't remember how I even got it back then and I didn't see any kind of "retrieval" menu like TERA has for account-wide special stuff.

    I'm pretty excited, I really liked Aion back in the day. I also think I might've made a character on a not-so-Asmodian-friendly server... is anyone familiar enough to say if that's bad or good? I played Dark Age of Camelot pretty seriously when I was in high school and college and picking an Albion/Hib/Mid-dominant realm and then playing one of the other two generally resulted in pain when you did any RvR (and by dominant I do mean that it'd be like a 65/20/15 sort of thing in a 3-realm game or an 80/20 dominance thing in a two-realm or faction system)

    Thanks for any answers you guys might have.

    A) It's a server that allows you to gain more experience. Either 1.5x or 2x exp I think, not sure. There's some restrictions as to what you can do on it because it's shared servers, but I believe it's the best place to be for leveling up.

    B) They removed special account items like that. Pissed A LOT of people off, myself included. There's no way to get them anymore unless they put them in the cash shop (In which case you have to pay money to get them again).

    Rifting with small groups could be fun, but the main "endgame" pvp is lame. Its not a bit zergy, but rather only a big zerg... and the high ranked players always run away like chickens, if there is only the slightest chance they could lose. I know the point loss is heavy, but the most high ranked never do real pvp, most of the time only pve farming...pointless.

    Wow. Thanks for the reply - I wish I'd known it was so swift.

    So all of the perks (I will miss the wings more than anything - they were better than the ones you get from the ascension quest at level 10 if I recall...) for buying either of the special editions were just flat-out removed? OOF.

    I admit, there are some neat wings in the cash shop but I'm never cool with losing content I paid extra money for. Bah.

    Is the game still worth playing? I haven't had much of a chance to fiddle with it since re-installing but it is the weekend now.

    Yup, they've made a ton of changes to improve it since launch. The state it's in now is really the state it should have launched in, as the grind barely exists anymore. Also, it's got a great F2P model if you're playing from NA, from the EU...not so much. All the content they've released is free, so you only pay for cosmetics and convenience items (though the augments for manastones etc. can be kinda necessary later on).

    And 4.0 is supposedly coming in June, which brings a level cap increase to 60, as well as 3 new classes (gunslinger, bard and some mech-based class). As with all the updates, it's a free expansion.

    There aren't really any traditional raids (I think there's one, not sure though as I've never done it), but dungeons are pretty good. They're relatively standard fair with some interesting fights, and the addition of solo dungeons is neat. That and there are a few arena style dungeons where you fight wave after wave (I think The Crucible), a 5 man and a solo/duo (forget which). The other raiding is fort sieges which is basically a mixture of PvP and a raid boss. Nothing overly complex, but fun, and even moreso with the threat of being ganked (if you're into that kind of thing).

    Aion's patch today

    Anyone able to get ingame yet? Also I know they said there would be "new classes" but I haven't seen anywhere about what the classes are...anyone know?

  15. #155
    bard and gunslinger I believe

  16. #156
    New classes are Bard and Gunslinger. Sadly the mech based class is delayed till...sometime.

    The patch came with a new launcher and...well...it broke everything. Nothing is going to work for at least a few more hours while they try to sort things out and get the new launcher working.

    Video of the classes:

    It's an MMO made by the same company that made TERA. It's F2P and actually not a bad game at all.

    NCSoft didn't make Tera.
