  1. We need your opinion!

    It has been some months since I logged into Gold Aion. I was the leader of Dragon, the largest english-speaking legion on the Elyos side. Many of the players I knew (myself included) quit because of the pay 2 win. It is possible to buy any amount of composite or even plume +10 from . At first only a few people left, they went to another Aion server which had much less pay 2 win--but as some people left, then more and more started to go. Whoever was selling on was either the owner, a GM, or someone who was duping because they can sell you as much as you want to buy. If you don't believe me, check my account. I bought two +10 plumes from my friend, who got them from and then he bought another two. In Aion official with thousands and thousands of people there were very, very FEW +10, but on Gold Aion there is many. Someone is either duping them or making them. So, lets start here. 1. No Pay 2 Win, no GM selling on, and if someone is duping, ban that account and remove all associated items. When players smell this, they will leave. 2. No AFK events. 3. Increase drop rate to encourage people to farm in open world. In games it is good and fun to farm.. this is where we have pvp interaction while farming. I have no reason to kill shit in Katalam, Danaria, or even Idian Depths because the drop rates aren't that good.. but if they are good for manastones and other items then people will farm, and then pvp will also happen (not just in bloodmark camps). FARMING IS GOOD, BRING PEOPLE OUT TO FARM. Please stop with all the chests spawning in Katalam and Danaria events.. there are already mobs (enemies) to kill all over, just increase drop rates and change the loot tables. 4. Reset PVP ranks. Every three months is perfect, that's four seasons per year. Every single game today has a ladder that resets. You will never, never, never, get new players to come in after an Aion server has been open for some time because they see the ranks do not reset and there is no chance to catch up. Who wants to play catch-up to guys on a private server who have been playing for years? Nobody. I already recommended this 9 months ago on forum: 5. Stop blocking content because of forts. If Asmo own three upper abyss fort (MKA), they get 2 * 3 = 6 ceramium medals * 3 days per week = 18 more ceramium medals than Elyos. PER WEEK. = 72 ceramium medals per month. Ok, so, now they get a big benefit just from having it, but also they can run instance. You get 1 guaranteed ceramium medal per fort per day x3, plus on average you get 1-2 boxes during a 3 run MKA. That's 5 ceramium medals per day * 7 days = 35 ceramium per week * 4 = 140 ceramium medals. 140 + 72 = 212 ceramium medals. So, if you own MKA you can get about 212 more ceramium medals than the faction that does not. This is not balanced AT ALL. Also, that is THREE HOURS OF RUNNING DUNGEONS that the other faction cannot even do. Let the benefit of owning a fort just be that they can defend for extra ceramium. Anybody should be able to run the dungeon -- put the entrances at their respective Abyss bases (they did this on NA during several events, but make it perma). I made this suggestion 9 months ago also, twice: 6. Socketing is and always has been a problem, but gets exacerbated by composites because of their rarity. There needs to be a way to reliably socket gear with effort. Is it possible to put an NPC in the game who sells the Assured Socketing boxes for like 200m+ each? The Greater Supplements are pretty trash and everyone knows it. I have used them countless times and while it is supposed to grant a +15% additional rate, it really feels bad when they fail again and again. If you can't make an NPC sell them, I recommend adding them to the drop table for bosses ( and possibly mobs in certain areas ). 7. The Shop should not sell pay 2 win items. Cosmetic items, pets, mounts, EXP/drop amulets, titles etc., are OK. Things like socketing boxes are not (but players need ways to get 100% socketing IN GAME). 8. Do not make special events for Sieges. We already tried this and all it did was make people stop doing siege properly and only killing their own characters to get max reward (my videos of Sashenka doing this are gone on my old hard drive). Many of the top players on Elyos side were doing this to get the best rewards during the event. There was a lot of effort put into Gold Aion. Bugs that plague other private Aion servers were fixed here (such as left click to rotate camera!!) so I know whoever was doing work behind the scenes was putting in the time to fix things. Also, everything ran so smoothly, it really was a retail-like experience. edit: wanted to add, I like 2x rate the best. Higher than that and the game goes too fast, maybe even 1x is good. Please, do not implement free eternal weapon and armor, it makes the game too easy and then crafters have no reason to exist. I also recommend removing pink quests that have free gold weapon and boots. If you look on another private server you will see that crafting is a really big deal because they do not have these. It gives some players a purpose -- to craft (something else to do).
  2. Leveling, & Communication

    Hey Scent, First, I do not completely disagree with you. *Some* campaigns and quests could benefit from having their XP raised, as those (speficially Inggison/Gelk, and some of Sarpan/Tia) time spent is not worth the XP gain. That being said, leveling is extremely easy (trivialized really) this patch, and the x2 server XP also applies to quest turn ins. That means your 4.5m xp quest is giving you 9m. In addition, there is a Daeva's Day event (birthday cake) and with triple xp rates, you can 1-65 in a weekend easily if you know what you are doing. Some people enjoy doing the quests and do not want to rush through the content too fast. They are enjoying leveling and the story, and that is also part of the game. If you want to level fast there are ways, including questing and grinding instances solo, that are very fast--seek them out.
  3. MKA, Sillus, etc.

    Almost six months ago I wrote this. And we wonder why there is a dwindling population for Elyos? I have people in my legion who left to go play Asmo because we (Elyos) do not own upper abyss forts. Open the abyss forts to everyone to run. Put the entrance in the abyss bases. Right now there is upper abyss siege 3x per week--this means that Asmos can get +18 ceramium medals from fort defense over elyos, plus running MKA(KKM) every day which is 3 guaranteed ceramium medals and on average about another 2 between the three forts. On average, somewhere in the range of 5 extra ceramium medals per day * 7 days = 35 ceramium medals from MKA (KKM) + 18 ceramium medals from 3*siege = 53 ceramium medals per week asmos get more than elyos just for UA. In addition to receiving more ceramium medals, Asmos also get more instances to run (they have an extra hour +) per day.
  4. Why I did not get starter Pack?

    You get the items once per account. If you are not getting them in the survey then you have already received them on another character, on that account.
  5. Danuar Mysticarium S Rank 6 box(Sillus fort)

    Agreed, It is always in the last cell. When I made this video on Gold Aion server I had not ran this dungeon in 4 years and just forgot. I realized this was the case after a few more runs but did not want to change the video.
  6. [ATTENTION] Changes entering game!

    OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You fixed left mouse button rotate camera bug! Thank you so much!!!! (Yes, this excitement is real. I had to adjust my entire way of looking around.) Take my moneh!
  7. Endgame Gear Progression

    1. There are 3 dailies in Katalam and 3 in Idian Depths (underground, but lets call it by the name it is now). Trading BM for AC is indeed a very good way to get coins as you can get 540 per week, per character, for doing the 19 camps. So if you have two characters at lvl 65, that is 1080 AC per week. Leveling is fairly easy these days, so perhaps you would like to have more than 1 character (many do). Also, doing the daily for manastones/AC daily on each 65 is a good way to make money (as well as pink quests and selling/using the manastones). A good way to get AC is to buy them from other players. As you run your instances and break gear for enchant stones, get drops, sell event items etc., you will make a good amount of money. If you farm in ID (Idian Depths) for 1 hour, you might only make 6m (6kk) in pure drops, but it is likely you will make another 30-50m in items such as Mystic Accessory Flux, or Ancient manastone crit/magic boost etc. A few hours of farming there will allow you to buy many AC. Farming in ID with the sole purpose of gaining AC by drops is a bad way to go about things. What AC you get as drops there should only supplement what you are going to buy. 2. Many people still do Kahrun weeklies. This is a good end-game healing set still (because it has heal boost and CONCENTRATION). None of the 65 sets have concentration. Kahrun is one of the best sets for clerics. If you plan on doing a lot of healing then the Kahrun set is very good for you (and the chain gloves have cast speed 8%). As a chanter though, this is not required. Also, many people also run Raksang daily x5 because you get a lot of Kahrun symbols this way. In Russian the dungeon will be called Тамарэс. 3. Getting AP for stigmas in 4.6 is much easier than before. You can farm for keys (normal mobs drop keys or keymasters) in Tiamarantas Eye when it is open. Farming in Idian depths will actually net you a good amount of AP per hour. If you have the premium pack for extra AP it is even better, but without it you will still get 30-90k per hour depending on your farm speed. There are small AP chests in certain areas in Tiamaranta and Sarpan that give AP and require no key at all. You will have to look up a guide on that as it is too lengthy to explain in this forum post. Dredgion is also a good way to go, as even a loss will net you ~15-20k. 4. As a new chanter you should be prioritizing PvE gear. It is is important to be able to run PvE so that you may get kinah and drops. When people run Infinity Shard (hyperion), DR (Modor/Grendel), IO (tower), EB (bastion) etc., they want to take a support chanter. This means you need HP gear and support stigmas. My creds--I run every instance on this server. I can tell you right now if you go full AP at/crit as the other guy suggested you will 1. (take forever to get there because lack of money/cera) and 2. (be missing out on a LOT of daily/weekly stuff because no groups will take you).
  8. Aurora drop rate nerf

    Hey all.. So this event has been fairly fun. It has gotten my legion and myself out farming more instances, especially low level stuff. It gives us 1-2 extra hours per day to play in Gold Aion. However, the past few days have been... different. The drop rate in Adma for the past 2 days between a few of my characters is 37 (16, 11, 10) runs and 0 Auroras. This is VERY low compared to what it was when the event first started. I have even tried using the 50% drop rate amulets. If a drop rate will be nerfed that is OK, but please let us know if something is changed because right now many of my legion feel like we have wasted several hours of farming and now will no longer continue to do so.
  9. Danuar Mysticarium S Rank 6 box(Sillus fort)

    Can a moderator please move this to the guides and tips section. This is an S rank and box guide for Danuar Mysticarium (Sillus Fort Instance).
  10. Voting not showing up on website.

    Fix this problem please. I have voted again, and it doens'tregister. No, my vote is not a fraud, thanks.
  11. Voting hasn't been showing up (or giving coins) on the website now for 3 days. The last day my profile registered my vote was on 11/19.
  12. I made a video of me doing S Rank Sillus with a few edits for boxes and such. I do not cover every runic codex or hidden mob spawn (you will figure it out soon enough). 3-4 years ago I made a video of this as glad--I'd like to post as much content from Gold Aion as possible to promote it. Enjoy.
  13. Perento is bugged

    I ended up contacting Purrfect on discord. They said it will be fixed after the restart. The bug is that no quests were showing.
  14. Perento is bugged

    Perento in Heiron is bugged. A few of my legion mates were having problems picking up quests from him. I went to test this and logged one of my characters who had never picked up a quest from him and he has no quest, only the text "Faith and Arms."
  15. Question about the Crafting System

    You never did actually ask a question. You may have 2 expert crafts (400+) and 1 master (500+) per character.
