Aion is now free-to-play. Like totally free-to-play. NCSoft seems to be doing it for all their games (did it with Lineage II and City of Heroes). It intrigued me enough to give it a go.

After a rocky installation process, I managed to make up a character. Was very impressed with the customisation options. Seems a pretty deep game so far as well, but yet to play more than a day through it.

GOD  MY  OH

He needs a pimp halo.   I don't care if such a thing doesn't exist and is heretical, he needs one.


I would question his effectiveness as a assassin.  Unless he puts on large Vegas Style Shows that his targets can't help but attend where they are "coincidentally" crushed by massive crystal chandeliers.  At that point though you're probably going to pull in more dough as a fantasy MMORPUGGER Cee Lo Green and just drop the assassin gig completely.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
I"ve been giving it a go, but each quest has pages of dialogueandf the combat is...clunky.  Also, my minion doesn't attack when i get hit if my mage shield is up.  The only really cool thing I've found so far is the pet system and the character art.  The problem is that the characters are so detailed and gorgeous, that they don't really fit in with the background art.  I've got it cranked up to maximum and there's very little in the way of ground clutter shrubbery and rocks and stuff.  The characters are great to look at, but the world they inhabit is kind of bland.

All that said, the soundtrack is incredible.

The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

I'm going to hijack the thread a bit here.  Is City of Heroes worth a DL?  It looked interesting to me, but I'd like another's opinion.  One thing specifically, hows the story and character interaction? (hopefully not like STO where your bridge crew has all the personality of the nearest bulkhead)

I like it better than I did when I tried it last time.  Though frankly, they need to work on their netcode as it's just stupid to have a GCD and not have the ability to "pre-cast".

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Oh yea I've forgot to mention that Aion is indeed free-to-play. Good that someone did.
It's a bit different concept from the NCSoft one in Europe where it's under Gameforge, but it's still free-to-play here too.

Oh and my Assassin has changed a bit since that last shot. Not much, but a bit.

Habeeb it...

Great.  Yet another game I gotta get into.

Gonna have to free up disc space because I'm a hoarder for things like ISOs of games I *think* I might play sometime later but never do.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Indeed I really recommend people to try this out. Great quality MMO for free.

Only downside is the European servers. With Starter Account (which is the free one) you can't sell or trade anything to another players.
The Gameforge is trying to figure out proper methods (read: restrictions) to open up some trading possibilities for Starters, but right now they are of course battling against Botters and Gold Sellers.
Denying trade completely makes it a bit harder for those bastards to operate, but still... it's not that profitable to play as a Starter.

Other than that, there are really no reason to not try Aion in Europe (unless you don't like MMO:s).
Habeeb it...

thats the reason why me and my mrs. are playing on NA servers, on Siel.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
I'm in the US anyway. :)

Gonna have to free up a bit of disk space though because mine mysteriously vanishes from time to time, and a lot of the things I do in order to "fix" it doesn't help much in the long run.

I'm already playing Star Trek Online with a bunch of people from HLP.  Sell me on yet another MMO game.
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Lololol.

Edit:  Already got a complaint about this game.

It's so big that it'll take a good while to download it on my crappy internet.  Instead, I get to play The Waiting Game!  I'm hoping to get a DLC for it soon.

I hope this is worth it.  It think it is going to take me the better part of a week to download.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Man, all the DLC for The Waiting Game cost too much.  Supposed to let me progress through it faster but I gotta pay an additional subscription cost.

Till then I guess I gotta let my laptop sit there and download for a few hours.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Haha. Trust me, it is good. Both visuals and sound are nice and the gameplay should be ok. But don't expect anything extraordinary from the quests, those are your standard MMO quality but should keep you entertained.

On lvl 10 you'll get your wings, but you can't fly everywhere only on certain areas (explained by lore that you need to have Aether in the air for the wings to work).
But on lvl 25 you'll have the portals for the Abyss open for ya (after a few quests of course) and in there you can fly prettymuch everywhere. But so can the opposite faction.
Habeeb it...
