NCsoft launches Aion: Ascension, a powerful combination of its Free business model, and the anticipated 3.0 update. Aion: Ascension introduces new and existing players to refined starting areas and mid-level zones and advanced content for the more experienced Aion player base with no subscriptions, no account tiers and no purchase requirements.

Along with the C.U.B.E. (Customizable User Bundling Experience), an unparalleled system allowing players to customize their Aion marketplace item bundles based on their characters personal needs, Aion: Ascension brings players the Atreian Atlas, an advanced guidance system that acts as a personal pathfinder as players progress through the game. The information revealed within the Atreian Atlas provides insight allowing players to properly prepare for what lays ahead.

Aion: Ascension also brings players several features including housing, mounts, new zones and multiplayer instances.

  • Housing

– Two new housing districts comprised of five types of housing: Palace, Estate, Mansion, House and Studio.
– Studios are quest-based and everyone will be able have access to one, whereas the houses and mansions are auction-based and will be obtained via a special in-game auction system just for housing.

  • Mounts

– Mounts are the latest way to get around Atreia in style, and with this update you can travel at ever increasing speed depending on the mount. Players will be able to summon one of four new mounts coming in the update – the Surfrider, the Pagati, the Sharptooth or the Flurry!

  • New level cap of 60

– More than 600 new quests, bringing a massive content update extending the game as players progress from 55-60.

  • New instances and zones

– Two new zones – Sarpan and Tiamaranta
– Six new instances consisting of two 12-player, two six-player, one solo, and one 24-person instance.

    yeah, the house you get at lvl 21 is more of a shed. it is an apartment with only one room. as for the mounts, they are sold in the same place you go for housing (Oriel for the Elyos), and the lvl 35 mount costs 12 million kinah i believe. it was also said that if you master handicrafting that you can make mounts, although i have yet to see the design.

    the game doesn’t blow. it’s the 2nd expansion btw. and game hasn’t been out for ten years maybe 3~4. why does the crafting suck? is it because you can’t get the best gear just because you got materials. there is multiple steps to getting good weapons as it should be. it’s not like other games where you have a 100% chance to make the item. you have a chance to make three item as well as a chance to proc the item to get a greater output. if that’s what make the crafting system bad your stupid and should stick to games where you are given stuff such as wow.

    This game blows, ten years for an expansion pack. For a crappy asian grinder. The crafting system, probably still blows.

    Seems on the new server there is a race to hit 60, should of seen the flood of new and old players going at it trying to get the top spots.

    I also was trying to get a house, tho you have to be lvl 21 to get one for free the npc said tho who knows and I have still yet to find the mounts.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
