Big Changes Coming to Aion in Korea

Aion Korea is about to go under a pretty radical change on January 17th. In addition to making the game F2P there (currently you get charged what is effectively a sub fee) many changes are being done which will have BIG changes here.

Some key points (sourced from here and here):
  1. New items will be divided into 3 new categories. Ancient, Legendary, Ultimate. Instead of mythic, etc.
  2. Items are divided between PVE and PVP attributes. To upgrade PVE, you need to PVE. To upgrade PVP, you need to do Sieges and PVP things.
  3. Existing Enchantment Stones and Holy Upgrade Serums/Temperings will disappear. They will be replaced by new Enchantment stones that focus on ither PVE or PVP attributes. They can be used on any item regardless of the slot. Omegas are gone.
  4. Breakthrough has been removed. All items can be enchanted up to level +15. The increase of stats will be higher for each level than currently. Already enchanted items can still be used. Ie, no more enchanting past +15.
  5. Various new manastones have been added. The number of manastone slots has been reduced to 3. It seems archdaeva manastones are going away (?) and we're moving back to stats.
  6. Items can no longer be improved with idians, godstones, augmentation.
It should be noted that players in Korea have not liked much of 5.0 releases, and many streamers have quit the game over them. The game has historically been VERY pay to win in Korea where full +20 items are common and you can pay via the cash shop (on top of sub fee!) for stat increase buffs.

Thus, a lot of these changes will drastically rework how endgame in the game works.

Frozen Magic Event 2017

Snow has freshly fallen in Atreia, and the Shugo footprints plentiful. One special Shugo named Frosterinerk claims wonderful rewards await the Daevas that make Aetherized snowballs. Gather the snowball and aetherize them to see what rewards are hidden inside.

- Part One: Frosterinerk's Gift (Level 30+) -

In the capital cities, talk to Frosterinerk daily to get Snowballs. To cultivate the aetherized Snowballs, right-click or double-click on the Snowball to enchant it to the next level. Enchant the snowball up to +10 to make the Brilliant Snowball. When you open the Brilliant Snowball you will get (1) Icy Shardand (1) Brilliant Fragment. Combine these items to get a Brilliant Ice Prism, which offers a random high value prize. If the snowball explodes at any point before +10, random prizes will automatically be redeemed into your inventory.

Two Snowballs can be collected daily from Frosterinerk and an additional one Snowball for every 30 minutes you are logged in up to six. In total this allows you to get eight free Snowballs per character per day! Additionally, once per account per day you can pick up a bundle of five Snowballs from the store for 1 NCoin. If you need more Snowballs, bosses from these instances have a chance to drop them as well as well as being able to be purchased from the store.

Snowballs with enchantment levels 4 and above have a chance to give an Icy Shard (+10 Snowballs will always give an Icy Shard as noted above), which can be combined with a Brilliant Fragment, also available on the store, to create the Brilliance Ice Prism.


- Part Two: Snowflake Crystals (Level 30+) -

If you use up all of your Snowballs from Frosterinerk, Wintrinerk will be more than happy to trade you a +1 Snowball for (10) Snowflake Crystals. Snowflake Crystals can only be acquired after a snowball explodes after attempting to enchant it.

- Part Three: Joyful Bundle (Level 30+) -

While Freeziman contemplates his existence as a talking snowman, he offers you a Joyful Bundle that you can pick up from him daily. Open the bundle to receive (1) [Event] Dye Bundle and (1) random buff scroll. Various types of buff scrolls can be acquired with many offering effects to all party members. If you have friends or Legion mates within similar levels and they have differing scrolls, try to group together to share the effects!

- Rewards -

You can find the full list of rewards available on the forums here.

Frozen Magic ends January 10, 2018. Aetherize as many Snowballs as you can, Daevas!

The Giving Grove Returns

The Giving Grove is returning on December 6 which brings the mystical prize-bearing trees. Grab your friends and fellow faction mates to grow and bloom the saplings and be rewarded with special treets.

- How To Participate -

Tomorrow in the capital cities you will find three Magic Saplings and the Arbor Keeper. Speaking to the Arbor Keeper will give you a one-time quest, which provides you with a nutrient bundle. Upon opening the bundle you will be able to pick the nutrient corresponding to the sapling you wish to use it on (Robust, Shiny, and Solemn). Use the nutrient on the sapling to receive an Inferior Present and a Magic Tree Seed.

Upon obtaining 1,500 Magic Tree Seeds you can combine them to get a Fused Magic Tree Seed. You can use this seed to grow the Magic Trees to the next stage. Magic Tree Seeds are tradeable so be sure to work together to grow the trees! The player that uses the Fused Magic Seed to grow the tree will be granted the corresponding Very Special Present which contains a unique title! If the tree is already at the final stage, using a Fused Magic Seed will still grant a Present, but it will not be the same one as growing the tree.

There are three different trees, and each one has three stages. The higher a tree’s stage is, the better the reward is when you feed it nutrients. Each tree offers different rewards, so be sure to use your nutrients, or seed, on the tree you want! Additionally, all three trees will be reverted to their sapling forms after each maintenance.

If you are looking for additional nutrients, you will automatically be granted one per hour you are logged in, up to two per day. Prestige Pack holders will get a special survey once per week after the maintenance containing five nutrients. You will also be able to obtain nutrients from certain bosses inside instances.

Keep Gaming On The Go

Gaming has cemented itself into our culture; the popular pastime is loved and played by millions across the globe. With strategically smart moves from the world of eSports and bold tournaments drawing more players annually, it’s a pastime that keeps gathering momentum, allowing the world of gaming to expand to new heights.

Starting as far back as TV games and developing into PC and console games, conventional gaming is immersive and interactive yet lacks the freedom of movement that can be found with portable gaming consoles.

Even though handheld gaming consoles lack superior graphics and intense game-play, there’s something to be said for portable gaming consoles as they bring you a world of entertainment on demand and on the go.

The following handheld consoles are the best portable gaming solutions available right now, if you travel often or find yourself strapped to the back of the car for a long haul journey one of these hand-holds may just make your journey that much more pleasant.

Get Portable With Sega
Sega has been a household name in the gaming department for some time now. Bringing players much loved classics like Sonic The Hedgehog; the new At Games Sega Portable is the perfect handheld gaming console for those ultra fun old school games.

At just 5.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches thick, The At Games Sega Portable can fit in just about any bag. Jump into a variety of new worlds and fascinating Sega titles for portable gaming excitement.

The Classics Come Back To Life With Wolsen
Featuring 152 classics, all the games and can be taken with you in the go, The Wolsen LCD Portable is a nifty little hand-held gaming device that packs a punch full of classic entertainment.

The games are reminiscent of old school favourites and the best part is that it will appeal to all members of the family. It’s also very affordable and extremely durable.

The Mini Arcade Portable Console
If you were a fan of arcades back in the day then you must have the iWaWa Arcade. It comes paced with dozens of classic arcade style games and offers small and compact versatility for young ones on the move.

Transform Your Mobile Into A Gaming Device
Smart phones have really revved up their processors, and developers are starting to take full advantage of this. As smart phones become the dominant way to take your complete lifestyle on the go with you, and to play the slots NZ has to offer anywhere, anytime, more and more people are going mobile.

The BD&A Power A Moga literally transforms your mobile device into a handheld gaming console complete with all the bells and whistles. Featuring console remote grips and two analogue sticks, the device will even charge your phone while you play.

If you’re in the market for one of these guys then you should be aware that they are currently only compatible with Android devices.

Keep It Real With The Vita

Sony’s PlayStation Vita will keep you coming back for more every time. Link it up with your PS4 and tickle your gaming fantasies with more than 1000 games to choose from.

The device offers players a pristine hand-held console with crisp graphics and a neatly arranged interface that is familiar and friendly if you’re a PlayStation fanatic. It’s the perfect on the go option for when you can’t be face planted in front of your console.

The Best Simulation Video Games Available

Video games today come in an assortment of genres and playable titles. Everything from adventure games, role-playing games, first person shooters and now more recently virtual reality games has a place in the gaming domain.

It’s fast paced and immersing, modern video games captivate players and submerge then into a suspended reality that allows for an extension beyond the self-realization of you your own human body.

There is no single genre of video game that mimics reality more so than the simulation video game.

A simulation video game mimics Reality almost inseparably and is as much fun as playing at an NZ online casino, only in a whole new way. It’s a computer-generated carbon copy of the world, and has been designed with one clear focus in mind. Simulation games are often developed to train certain fields of humanity, analyze and predict human outcomes. The following games are the best simulation games available to date.

Fly With Flight Simulator X
Flight Simulator X developed by Microsoft Game Studios will wrap you, twist you and turn you over in a 360-degree motion for good measure. Whether you’ve always dreamed of conquering the skies or if you’re just an airborne fanatic, Flight Simulator X has exactly what you’re looking for in a flight simulation video game.

The game is entirely based on real world aircraft controls and allows you to experience what it’s like to be a top dog in Top Gun, first hand. Twist in modern aircrafts for good measure and you’ll be king of the air in no time at all.

Enter Your U Boat With Pride
Silent Hunter III is a submarine simulation video game developed by Ubisoft. You take command of a submarine or U-boat in World War II, slowly entering the peril of the underground graveyard of ships your duty is simple; seek and destroy.

The effect of submarines in WW 2 was undeniable as they changed the face of the shipping lanes and ushered in a silent kind of control many were afraid to tackle. That’s exactly the kind of feeling Silent Hunter 3 provides players with, it gives you full control, allowing players to focus in on being a submarine captain commanding his crew, rather than being an insubordinate charged with tedious duties.

Experience The Hype With Assetto Corsa
From super cars to hyper cars and beyond, Assetto Corsa developed by Kunos is a breathtaking affair strictly for the love of cars. Praised for its technical driving ability and realistic sense of handling that makes you feel like you own the car this driving simulator game affords players with true freedom on the race track.

The game itself does have its downfalls and top critics agree that certain F1 simulators go above and beyond what Assetto Corsa has to offer, but the game's appeal lies in its down to earth driving bliss, which truly places you in the driver's seat of some of the best road going cars in the world.

Harvest Your Crops With Farming Simulator 15
In Farming Simulator 15 there’s no room for error or cutting corners. The real hard gritty of what it takes to be a farmer is exposed in this game. It’s a true reflection of life in a working farm and will leave players astonished at the kind of rugged effort it takes to work the land.

Farming Simulator 15 is unforgiving and the realism in the game is apparent from the get go. If you want to become a farmer, and a successful one at that, it’s going to be long hours of hard work. The game gives you no short cuts either; a few simple tutorials set you on your way, and if you’ve never dealt with farming machinery before, get prepared to learn.
