I've been reading pretty good things about Aion lately, and having not played it since it was in beta, I wanted to give it another go.
I've also noticed however that there are big differences between the NA and EU versions of the game, and as I don't know anyone who actually plays it, I'd rather start on the region that offers the best service/options.
I know EU has restrictions, that NA doesn't have. So that's one point to NA.
How is the item shops in the different versions? I've read some people rant that NA is P2W, but I'd like some more insight.
Anything else I should know?
Maybe what server/world/realm to roll on?
Thanks a lot for your help
