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.

What is Player versus Player


Player versus Player is often times referred to as PvP inside MMORPG games. PvP is when two or more real


people fight amongst each other. The player is not fighting non-player characters (NPCs) or the environment during PvP. However, some PvP matches can involve NPCs and even cover multiple areas. Flying is a large part of Aion’s PvP environment. Players can use their wings in the game to fly or glide to safety.


Open Areas

There are multiple areas inside Aion The Tower of Eternity that are playing fields for both the Elyos and Asmodians. In fact the entire


Aion game is an open based PvP field. The Elyos will have multitudes of quests the can only be completed in the Asmodian area and the Asmodians will have quests that take them to the Elyos area as well. So coming into contact with the other race is bound to happen. Be prepared and start learning how to defend your character quickly. Death in Aion brings about a loss of experience and should be avoided at all costs.

Rifts open at certain locations within specific Aion areas that serve as portals to the other race’s area for questing. These rifts open for short periods of time and at random. The locations of the rifts are all the same but not all locations will have a rift when the time comes for one to appear. Just because a rift appears in one spot does not mean it will appear anywhere else.


Altered Game Play


With an open PvP environment being offered in Aion players must alter their game play from the more typical MMORPG that offers specific area types or options to not be a PvP player. In Aion just because a character walks into what they think is a Player versus Environment (PvE) area doesn’t mean there are not lurkers of the other race waiting to strike at any moment hidden in the bushes. With this type of game players need to focus on more PvP based armor and skills regardless of how they choose to play the game.

Protect your character with the best armor possible for their class. Focus on maximizing the character’s hit points so when and if they are struck they will not be killed in one hit. You will need to be quick with your fingers to strike back and defend yourself without any warning.



The PvP environment in Aion is a unique experience for players to perfect themselves and their game play. NPCs and monsters are


created for players to be able to beat them with the right group, armor, weapons, and tools. However, other players can create their character any way they want and make it as strong as possible. While fighting another player in a MMORPG you are facing an opponent whose only buffer between you and them is knowledge and how well they can play the game.
