Exclusive Aion Flight and Archetype Interview - Over the past few years, the Ten Ton Hammer team has been eagerly scooping up every piece of Aion: The Tower of Eternity development news that we could get our hands on.

Thankfully, the Ten Ton Hammer staff was able to nab a few answers to some nagging Aion questions, and if you’re eagerly awaiting this beautiful MMO, make sure you check out this interview!
