Akarios
Plains

Poeta is the starting area of
the Elysea, the homeland of the Elyos and
the lower half of the world of Atreia. Your character awakens in the
Akarios Plains near the first quest giver, Elpas. Elpas admonishes you
for some laziness then sends you off down the road to meet to with
Mires. Upon completing your first quest Mires will then offer you a
quest to help take back a small farm that has been overrun by some
unruly kobolds and other creatures. Completing the quests in this area
will take you quickly through the first few levels and guide you down
the road to Akarios Village.

[protip] Aion has a capable default UI, but remember to explore all
it's options to get the most bang for your buck. You can modify the
overall style to a more western theme with a single option change and
there are tons of hotbars available[/protip] style="font-weight: bold;">
style="font-weight: bold;">

Akarios Village
alt="" src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/71582"
align="right" />In
Akarios Village you will meet your
class trainers, NPC merchants and
the quest giver who will begin the quest chain that will lead you
eventually to the main goal of Ascension.
This area is the main player hub for all of Poeta and contains an
obelisk that binds your soul for resurection should you be killed in
your early endeavors and a travel portal for teleportation and quick
travel to other areas of the zone via a very cool in game flight
sequence. There will be a lot of quests to grab here as well as the
cube vendor and the class trainers selling spell books. I recommned
upgrading your cube, it may seem like a lot but it is very worth it as
there are so many trash drops and you will want to sell every single
one of them. It is also a good idea to purchase as many spell books as
you can afford to maximize your time in the field.
 
Cliona
Lake

alt="" src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/71608"
align="left" />Quests
from Akarios Village will set
you about exploring Cliona Lake
where you will help the local populace with clearing out more threats
as well as collecting some rare items and retrieving a lost axe. The
lake is meant to be the centerpiece of this zone and while the number
of quests here do not neccessarily reinforce this feeling, the scenery
certainly does. There are several spawn points of the begining
gathering recourse here, grab any of these that you can. Gathering
quests are a big part of early Aion for a reason, start now so that you
wont need to backtrack later. If you are saddened to leave this
picturesque spot you need not fret to long, you will be back here to
help complete your ascension quest later.

[protip]As you progress you will gain ability combos, make sure to read
the description carefully. It may be beneficial to use the combo
ability early on to get maxime effect and minimize your
cooldowns[/protip]

Daminu
Forest

alt="" src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/71584"
align="left" />The
Daminu Forest is the next area you
will explore, a lush forest area
that is being ravaged by kobolds. The protectors of the forest will
request your help to preserve it and it's gaurdians. It is here that
you will meet Forest Protector Noah, a very large treant who will give
you your first cinematic of the game. This is a repatitve theme
throughout your introducion to style="font-style: italic;">Aion
as you seek to uncover the truth about your past. You will also be
introduced to interactive item quests as you use a flute to awaken
slumbering treants. Completing all the quests here will also get you
your first in game title of "Tree Hugger". Aion titles are not merely
meant for showing off your prowess or heralding your accomplishments,
while they do a good of job of that their real purpose is to enhance
your character. Each title you pick up in Aion will have a stitistical
boost attached to it as well that is only active when the title is.

Deforested
Area

alt="" src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/71585"
align="right" />The next area you will explore will
be the Deforested Area. While no
quests originate here you will pick up some quest items from the
kobbold.

Melponeh′s
Campsite
style="width: 225px; height: 141px; margin: 2px;" alt=""
src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/71588" align="left" />Entering
Melphoneh's Campsite you will find a whole new host of quest
givers as well as a new obelisk to bind yourself to. As your main story
quest continues to unfold, this will be the area where you will be
tasked with most of the quests that will lead you from levels 5-7.
Centrally located to several areas of interest you will gain quests in
the Gray Zaif Habitat and the Kabarah Strip Mine. This area for me was
where the game really came alive and you began to see your characters
potential. Following the quest chains here will introduce you to Pernos
and Poa the final two quest NPCs in Poeta. Seek out Pernos before
starting the other quests inthe Kabarah Strip Mine to help speed things
along.

Agaric
Spore Road

alt="" src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/71591"
align="left" />This quest area has
one NPC, Pernos,
who will task you with finding and
avenging his lost pet in the strip mine. Pernos will later be part of
your ascension quest chain.

Timolia
Mine

alt="" src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/71589"
align="right" />Timola Mine is the
final area of
Poeta. It features Poa who will
request your help inside the mine. The mine is also the final peice of
your main campaign quest in Poeta, "No Entry". This is a long chain
quest that you will pick up around level 4 and continue to work on as
you explore the zone. One of my favorite parts so far of Aion is the
way long quest chains are laid for you in your quest journal. Knowing
that a seemingly mundane task is tied to a large reward in the end
makes it feel much less like a grind. I suggest grouping up for the
final task  in the mine. There will be plenty of others around
trying to complete it and when we lose sight of the massive part of MMO
they tend to become much less enjoyable.

Once you have finished the No Entry quest you get a very nice cinematic
that heralds you as a champion and ties back in to your main goal of
ascending and getting your wings. This should be your final quest that
deals soley with Poeta, but you will be returning as you finish up the
Ascensing quest line.

Your overall playtime in Poeta will range from 3-6 hours depending on
play style and population and unlike many of the other MMO's it doesn't
feel like level up filler. I enjoyed the quests and the scenery as I
moved through Poeta and I will definetly be looking forward to taking
many return trips here to level up all my alts.
