    I was going to play this game, but then you took an arrow to the knee.

    Any ideas as to why I might not be able to actually load the website? I have this problem with other websites too, it is odd.

    Hey Magic i have a quick question “What server are you playing on and what is your Character name?” I just got in to Aion and i need some guiders if you wouldn’t mind.
    Thank you somuch and Hope to see you in the server ๐Ÿ™‚

    could someone please link the site?

    • Magicman on March 10, 2012

      I have a posted comment above that has links to the FAQs for both the EU and the NA content. You can get to the official sites right from them if you wish!

    Guys, this Aion NA free model is global?Like other country gamers can play?

    • Kuumaa on March 7, 2012

      If it is, the truly free model will still be like Lineage 2.

      So the choices are
      EU : Pay for features
      NA : Pay to win

      Either way you’ll have to pay ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Dizzyjay on March 8, 2012

        Dam, I would hate it if it goes P2W T_T.

      • Edge on March 12, 2012

        Except that Lineage 2 isn’t pay to win at all, so that argument goes right out the window into the, “I r dumb” box.

        Seriously, look a the model with Lineage 2 again, you don’t have to spend a single cent because 100% of the content is available for free. You purchase cosmetic changes and convenience, not power. They are doing the same thing for Aion.

        Please don’t post if you’re just going to be stupid.

    I am strating a Cleric on Israphel Server (Dastian), If someone wants to join feel free to call =)

  11. jay on March 6, 2012

    fyi for the million people that don’t know how to pronounce this game correctly it is

    eye-on not aye-on

    • Magicman on March 6, 2012

      Either/or is fine. This has been a subject of debate since the game came out and differs usually based on where you live. Aion (pronounce A-on) is also a real greek word so there is precedent for that pronounciation. Either way, it’s a game, have fun!

  12. TheGamer on March 6, 2012

    Hey,i have a question:This aion f2p model in NA will be global?I mean, the NA version of the game will be global?

  13. Magicman on March 6, 2012

    Hi Gang!
    SO there is a ton of confusion here because NCSoft is following different models so I felt it might be wise for me to put ALL the information together here for everyone.

    1) The Europe free to play Aion is out and yes it does have some restrictions. THis is because that is managed by Gameforge. Restrictions and details can be found here:

    2) THe North American free to play version will follow the “Truly Free to Play” model that Lineage 2 does. From the NCSoft site:

    “What are the benefits of Truly Free?
    The Aion Truly Free experience combines the best parts of the
    Lineage 2: Goddess of Destructionโ„ข Truly Free model with numerous enhancements.

    Here are some of the key features of Aion Truly Free:
    No subscription fee. Play for free!
    No account restrictions. Visit any zone, chat in any channel, sell any amount of stuff on the trade brokerโ€”nothing is off limits!
    Robust countermeasures to combat game abuse. We’re dedicating a ton of resources to preventing account theft, botting, and real money trading.
    No hassles. Create your account, download the game, and play!
    No harassment. Don’t worry, we won’t hound you with constant offers or promotions.
    A lot of great stuff we’ll reveal more about leading up to launch!”

    More Details here:

    3) Do NOT confuse the “Free Trial” access that you can currently play in North America with the Free to Play conversion. There ARE limitations on the trial but it gives you a chance to get ahead of leveling before the free to play conversion is complete.

    Hope this clears the air a bit!

    • Dizzyjay on March 6, 2012

      Thanks for the clarification, one thing I never mentioned, in mmorpg I always go for PvE, since I use mmorpg as a relaxing and fun game. I however from time to time I would PvP, but thats in MOBA or FPS or Stratgy games, other than that, if I have a world to explore I rather PvE, I find it more relaxing that way. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Dizzyjay on March 6, 2012

    Ah I see so those chat restrictions and stuff, are only for right now? but not for when it officially goes free to play? hhhhmmm, I ll let my friend know, they might get excited over this, and I guess I ll stick with it, and you can add me IGN: Mirko.

    Btw Magicman, I think I am one of those people that spends hours and hours in character creation. Dam my obsession, but perfection takes time. XD

    • Magicman on March 6, 2012

      Correct. If you are not a currently paying subscriber and you are playing the “trial” you will have restrictions but when free to play it will follow the Lineage 2 “Truly Free to PLay” model which does not have chat or auction restrictions. Have your friend look at the FAQ over on the site for clarification.

      I will add ya next time I am on!

      • Rinor on March 6, 2012

        Okay maybe this is a stupid question .. but isn’t Aion already F2P in europe? (i am in europe) and i still have those restrictions it constantly tells me go get a gold pack and you can chat -.- idk maybe its just me

        • Magicman on March 6, 2012

          Not a dumb question at all. As I have been very vocal about NCSoft really screwed this one up. Yes, it is already free to play in Europe. But the F2P clients in Europe are run by Gameforge so the restrictions may differ from the NCSoft “Truly Free to Play” model being used in North America.

          • Rinor on March 6, 2012

            Well that sucks for me -.- …. JOIN THE AMERICAN SERVER ahhahahha ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Forgott3n on March 6, 2012

        Srry for spelling Your nick wrong -_-, i saw it when You created a char in aion :s .
