Who is the happiest to be done with it all? If not me (I will certainly defer to those who endured 10+ attempts at the hot heart of magic craft), then I surely rank right up near the top! Yes folks, there is a Santa Cl... I mean an end to the Miragent/Fenris questline in Aion, and I have found it....

Aion's recent expansion, Assault on Balaurea, ushered in a host of welcome changes, ranging from new zones to frightfully cute pets. Rifting, on the other hand, suffered tremendously.

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.
