Aion The Tower of Eternity
Aion The Tower of Eternity is a visually stunning MMORPG that has thousands upon thousands of people talking across the globe. First going live in Korea, then following with a grand showing in China, the Aion game has now made it global and quest help is needed more than ever. There are many different areas and zones inside Aion The Tower of Eternity and even more non-player characters (NPCs) running around offering a multitude of questing options. It is easy to get confused and lost within this new world.
It is important to understand how to navigate through the world and the different options Aion provides players. Tapping the “j” key will allow quick access to the Quest Log. There are little boxes next to the quests inside the log that you can put a check mark in. This little check mark allows for the quest to be seen on the right hand side of the screen. With this option
you can review details of the quest or check progress. If a full detail view of the quest is needed again there is a small arrow on the right side of the quest that you can click on the screen and it will open your log again.
Inside almost every quest is a link that players can click. This link is usually the name of a NPC or place within the game. Clicking this link will open a map that gives players a location of the place they are looking for. Tapping “m” opens the regular map and “n” opens a clear map that allows players to still play the game while seeing where they are heading.
Take a walk into the world of Aion and get ready to be impressed.
Items needed for quests will be lying around the ground, found from killing monsters/animals/NPCs, or gathered. Questing is one of the easiest ways to level and the most efficient in the game at this time. Quests are offering the character experience from killing foes in order to complete the quest, experience for completing the quest, items from drops, and possibly items or loot from the quest reward as well. Focus on doing all of the quests in one specific area; Poeta, Verteron, Heiron, Eltnen, Sanctum, Theobomos, or the Abyss for Elyos characters and Altgard, Beluslan, Brusthonin, Ishalgen, Morheim, Pandaemonium, or the Abyss for Asmodian characters.
These locations will offer players repeatable quests, gathering quests, main quests to continue the story line, side quests just for leveling, and work order quests for crafting professions. Do all the quests possible for the experience.
Great deals of people prefer to grind out their character levels. Grinding in an MMORPG is typically defined as killing for experience with no other purpose. The players are not trying to complete a quest, gain items to sell, farm for kinah/money in the game, or anything else. The only thing the players are doing during a grind is killing for the experience. Many people leave items and corpses on the ground without bothering to pick up little items while grinding. An inventory can become full very quickly during this process, however, picking up only items that “stack” or are a rare color should help keep things under control.
Choose an area that does not have a lot of other people. Focus on monsters that are 2-3 levels above the character and that are easy to kill. If a character dies in Aion they loose experience which defeats the entire purpose of grinding and leveling. Stay focused and kill as fast as you can. The respawn rate in Aion can be long for some groups of foes so make sure there is always something around to kill.
The Abyss is the main Player versus Player (PvP) battlefield inside Aion. The Abyss is a core area for both Elyos and Asmodians with quests, fighting, stores, NPCs, merchants, and an entire community waiting to be explored. Many players from the opposing team Elyos/Asmodians are flying around waiting to take aim and start a fight. The Abyss is an area for players to expand their game play options and explore new territory. Gaining experience here will typically bring with it Abyss points which raise the characters Abyss Rank.
While leveling inside the Abyss try to stay to the quest areas or you risk the chance of meeting up with the opposing team. There will be repeatable quests offered that are great for gaining Abyss points and experience. Some quests require the character to hunt the other team. Remember to stay focused and do not take on a fight you cannot win because that means a loss of experience.
