Starting today, players can participate in Ascension Festival, one of many events scheduled daily throughout the ten-day anniversary celebration. The community team is also running daily contests that can be seen from the forums and main website.

Within the update, players will quickly realise they need to bring their A-game, as they can thrust themselves into two new PvP arenas, together known as the Crucible Coliseum, bringing a new era of PvP combat to Atreia. The first, Arena of Discipline, will allow for one-on-one deathmatch battles between like-minded Daevas; while the second, Arena of Chaos, supports free-for-all bouts on a grand scale for the indiscriminate Daeva looking for glory! Additional content in 2.7 will consist of a large-scale, 48-person instanced boss fight in Padmarashkas Cave for those seeking an epic boss encounter as well as new armour and weapon sets. Additional details can be found in the Aion Game Guides Crucible Coliseum Game Guide and Crucible Coliseum Armour and Weapons.
