Video: Aion's Lani Blazier on 1.5, the Abyss, and Dark Poeta

Updated Wed, Sep 09, 2009 by Ethec

Ten Ton Hammer's Reuben "Sardu" Waters spoke with Aion Associate Lani Blazier at PAX 2009, and Lani shared more information on what's included with Patch 1.5. Lani will show off some much requested UI and character model improvements and talk a bit about the "training camp" being prepared to help players adjust to Aion's PvPvE environment in the mid-levels.

Next, Lani will take us headlong into the Abyss to show us exactly what PvPvE means in a tactical sense. We'll take on the AI-controlled balaur and confront one of the instance's mini-bosses, then end with a look at the Dark Poeta instance - an alternate history look at a now-beautiful Elyos zone had the rifts remained open and the Balaur and Asmodians been allowed to storm in.

That and much more in this information-packed Aion video from PAX 2009!
