Aion, the stunning fantasy MMORPG that has already swept through Korea, China, and Japan, will soon be making its way to an official launch in North American, Europe, and Australia. Boasting rich graphics, compelling storylines, and fun player versus player gameplay, the game will no doubt find as much success here as it did in Asia.
As we all await our early access or release, I wanted to put together a comprehensive resource for players tying together in one, easy to access, guide. Browse through the available information or bookmark for future reference to have valuable game information right at your fingertips!
Getting in on pre-selection and early start is still possible if you haven't done it yet! The pre-order is still available at various brick and mortar stores. If you cannot find it locally, digital purchase is a great option and can be done through NCsoft or sites such as Steam and Direct2Drive. If you have already pre-ordered but have yet to download the game client, you can find it here.
The machine that you intend to run Aion on will need to adhere to these minimum system requirements and hopefully be within recommended. The better your system is, the smoother your gaming experience will be, particularly if you hope to run on exceptional graphic settings.
The minimum specs are fairly reasonable allowing for even the modest of systems to handle the tax of the graphically intensive MMORPG.
Once launch happens, none of us are going to want to waste time trying to decide on our race and class, right? We want to know what we want and we want to get in there and play as soon as possible! Ten Ton Hammer has done hands on previews of every class in game not to mention our interview series that gives an official look at the classes and preliminary skill lists from our tireless site writers.
Now if you happen to be a fan of crafting and/or lore, you certainly are not left out! We have both beginner and advanced crafting guides and a well written history on the lore of Aion. These guides will introduce you to the storyline and secondary game before you log in.
While this game doesn't have a terribly steep learning curve, the first 20 levels of any game can be a struggle. These 13 tips will help get you started and the following features and guides will get you through your young years by offering assistance when you need it. Each race experiences unique
For Elyos players, you'll start out in Poeta, ascend and travel to your home city of Sanctum and then make your way to Verteron.
For Asmodae players, you'll start out in Ishalgen, ascend and travel to your home city of Pandaemonium then make your way to Altgard.
These resources should get you through the initial levels in game. If there is something you need to know that we haven't covered, you can always check out our dedicated Aion Community Site for more guides. We also have staff and plenty of players that keep an eye on our forums that are always willing to help should you need it, so don't be shy about asking!
