With summer winding down, what's better than a pool party? Well, if you're Dan X., that might just be a pool party with some rockin' music during a summer event! And if you play Aion on the Israphel server, this scene may well be familiar to you (with or without the lovely lass and guitar, mind you...

Aion's Assault on Balaurea expansion has wrought more than a few notable changes across the sundered face of Atreia, in addition to opening up several new areas for intrepid daevas to explore.

It's been a few weeks since the launch of Aion's most recent addition, Assault on Balaurea, which has brought smiles to many a Daeva's face -- although it may not be the "shiny new things to do" happiness you quite expected. Indeed, as Format shows us in today's One Shots, something else snuck in o...

Ye might have been too busy with yer chores to note, but yesterday was Talk Like a Pirate Day, mateys! While many different MMOs had events going on to mark the occasion, Aion decided to take its normally graphically pretty avatars and make them look rather rum-soaked, if not deliciously deranged. ...

There's no denying that Aion has some beautiful art. Aside from the detailed wings splayed all over the game's advertising, there's also a plethora of finery players can enjoy getting dressed up in. But what's the point of getting all dressed up if you have no place to show it off? Well, if you're ...

OK, Aion public test server (PTS) fans: would you like the good news first or the bad news? Never mind, here's the bad news: the PTS has been brought down and its database wiped (i.e., your characters and legions are now digital rubble under the NCsoft wrecking ball). The good news is that all o...

"There is currently a wait of about five days from the time you sent your request. We will continue to do all we can to reduce the wait time."

Think you've got what it takes to be an Atreian war correspondent? If so, grab your notepad, a pen, and your razor-sharp prose skills and head over to the official Aion website. It seems the powers that be (both Elyos and Asmodian) are looking for a few good daevas to prove that the pen is at least...

What you may not know is that you've got plenty of opportunities to tes...

Aion's recently announced server merges have been pushed back a couple of weeks and are now scheduled to take place on July 14th. The delay is apparently the result of name conflicts between players with the same moniker on servers that are scheduled to merge, and NCsoft has decided to take a bit...

Many of our Aion One Shots have featured fantastic, highly detailed armor, or the obligatory enormous wings that the game seems to be so well-known for. However, as a nice treat we got this scenic image in our mailbox recently from Jay (AKA SylvariVentari), who decided to focus on something we don'...
