Aion Online

aion-logo-Aion: The Tower of Eternity is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. The game developer is NCsoft’s Aion Team Development Dept, a major Korean game developer. Aion combines PvP and PvE in a fantasy game environment, and offers several unique features not seen in other MMORPG games, most notable being flying, both as a means of transportation and aerial combat. Other games in this genre typically offer flight only as a means of travel, while combat is reserved for the ground. There’s many more differences in Aion and other games.

There are four class archetypes in Aion: Mage, Priest, Scout and Warrior. Each of those is broken into two other specialized classes. For example, if you choose a mage as your class, you can further choose whether to be a Sorcerer or a Spiritmaster. When starting out, you get to choose only from the first four classes, and when you advance to level 10 you can further choose your specialized class. It’s certainly a great feature and an interesting way of advancing your character.

Aion’s endgame is mostly about PvPvE content. Although there are some PvE instances where you can fight bosses and get great loot, the game was designed primarily for PvP and that’s where the action usually is. As you fight more and more in the Abyss, you will start accumulating Abyss Points, which can in turn be traded for certain benefits like items and weapons, but most notable and most often used for improving your wings, visually and in other ways.

Aion also, much like other similar games, has professions. Six of those are crafting skills such as Weaponsmithing, and two are gathering skills with which you collect materials for the six production professions. Items from crafting skills can greatly help you in combat, and some are even essential for capturing castles in the Abyss.

Aion has so far received many positive reviews and is on it’s way to being one of the most popular MMORPGs on the market. No doubt the quality of the game will appeal to many people, and several innovative features will be welcomed by the gaming community.
