South Africa's World Cup win this game you feel that.The Aion official site features a brief interview with producer Chris 'Kinslon' Hager regarding the forthcoming 1.9 game update. Though NCSoft remains as coy as ever regarding a release date for the elusive patch, Hager manages to drop a few hints about what's coming. Perhaps most interesting (or alarming, if you're one of the eleventy billion assassins stealthing about) are the anti-stun mechanics being introduced. "If your character becomes stunned in combat, Remove Shock becomes available as a chain skill that you can use to remove the stun and increase your character's resistance to stun, knock back, and similar conditions for seven seconds.
At later levels, class-specific skills that you can also learn will act as chain skills that let you go on the offensive in addition to the basic abilities of Remove Shock," Hager says. He also mentions rewards for the much-anticipated daily quests. "The quest givers will offer are a wide range of rewards, from XP and Kinah to mist (time-limited) weapons, armor, and even some new titles," he says. So there you have the long and short of Poeta. Whether you're brand new to the game, or joining me in taking an alt-sponsored vacation from the high level grind, you'll likely enjoy the streamlined polish of Aion's accessible starter zone. Unless it's your second or third run through, take the time to read the quests and watch the full cutscenes, as the Aion storyline is a fun one and presented via very high production values. Few games have done the early levels better.
