Aion 3.0 Truly Free
« on: March 27, 2012, 01:55:46 AM »
We did a press release on this not too long ago, but figured i'd throw it out there since I've always been a fan of the game (not the grind).

Aion 3.0

I gotta say, with the fixes I've seen in the game in the last few months, the merging of servers to maintain an equal population ratio and this new 3.0 content with zero restriction for FREE is pretty fucking cool. If you had a passing interest in the game or quit during the mess of its first 6 months of launch - there's no excuse not to check this out. The new graphics update is pretty nice too - even if CryEngine 1 is dated. Pretty spiffy... now if only I could finish my damned Fenris set >.<

now that I have a decent PC, I'll be getting this to celebrate its true free-ness.

I downloaded this for the hell of it.  Seems like a fairly standard Korean MMO.

I'm on Tiamat. If you need help or anything just hit me up on AIM. I play infrequently.

Ok, I am in fucking LOVE with this patch. There's way too much shit to do now. I think I spent an hour just decorating my studio apartment in this incredibly HUGE residential districts. I came back on my 51 Gladiator and had a content orgasm. They've fixed all the fucking grindy coin quests - making repeatable quests into daily quests with guaranteed mob drops. They also lowered the hell out of the cost of coin rewards and allow you to choose your gear. There's like 4 new factions with quests, a new crafting faction, changed the entry req. on almost every dungeon, made a low level, mid level and high level daily SOLO dungeon for all us loners. The upgraded engine is pretty boss too. The also made the Abyss Gear way less uber - so you can't get rick-rolled quite as badly in PvP (buffs only defense, not damage now). I mean, the game is old and has its issues, but for a F2P, it doesn't get any better than this.


edit - the leveling grind is soooooooooo much better now. i'm getting like 2 million xp a quest now. /dies.

I like, downloaded this, even though I don't like MMOs very much.

I'm a level 11 Sorcerer.

I decided to give this one a go today and it's pretty friggin' sweet for FTP. I went with a scout and got him up to 7 but it's bed time now.  The population seems pretty high too. People all over the place.
