3.0 Live on NA servers

YYorle, Apr 13, 12 8:35 AM.

"Ascension"

Heya guys,

I know it's been a while since anything new has been posted on here, but I figured that with 3.0 "Ascension" going live on the NA servers yesterday, it wouldn't hurt to post about it on here :) It gives me a chance to practise typing newsposts again. Gawd, sometimes I miss doing that seriously. xD

Anyways, here are the patchnotes, taken from the NA site as the EU doesn't seem to have an ETA on when it goes live.

Edit: I deleted the actual patchnotes on here since they seemed to screw up the entire layout of the site, just use the link provided above if you'd like to read up on them. They've got a prettier layout anyway. ^^

So that being said, how are you guys doing? :D

Keep Strong, Spread the Love

Future of WoL

YYorle, Dec 11, 11 11:35 AM.

~Dun Dun Dun...~


Heya WoL'ers,

Today I'd like to talk about what I think may be an important turning point in WoL's history. As you all know I have been looking forward to try out the upcoming MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic (SW:TOR). I eagerly took the chance to try it out in the last two beta testweekends. Being both a big Star Wars fan coupled together with the positive experiences of these tests, I have decided to start playing this MMO a lot (read: fulltime) once it's officially released on the 20th of December.

However, this presents a problem. As you guys can imagine I can't play two games fulltime at once. No matter how much I enjoyed Aion these last two years, I would like to move on. As such, I have decided that I will put Aion on a very low once SW:TOR is released. This means that I won't be able to lead the legion anymore (as I won't be online much at all) and as such I would like to appoint a new Brigade General of Word of Love: Perento. Now of course this isn't something I have decided on a whim. :P For the past month and a half I have been putting plenty of thought in it and I also talked to several of you about it.

This means that WoL will have several options, but they all basically come down to the legion needing a new and involved Brigade General. :P I would like anyone who is interested in the *ahum* job to please raise your hand and come and have a nice little chat with me to discuss things. After all is said and done, I'll hopefully have a list of people who would like to become WoL's new Brigade General and be able to ask the rest of you in the legion who you would like to see in the position best. :)

I plan to use this website for said 'election round', but I deliberately don't want to start a thread in the forums where the applicants and the rest of the legion can openly post and read everything that is said about their motivations and such towards me. This will prevent possible flaming (although I know you guys don't flame to begin with :P) but it also feels a bit more comfertable for me keeping it private . After all, I've been putting a LOT of time and effort in this legion and I hope you guys can imagine stepping down as BG kinda feels like ripping a vital organ or two out and giving it away. :3 Of course you guys are free to start threads about this post yourself, should you feel the desire to do so. :P

So far I have been blessed meeting every single one of you and you've made my Aion days into memorable ones. When I started out playing this game I couldn't have possibly imagined all the great things that were in store for me. Most notibly of course is meeting a lot of awesome people in Aion who I have come to appreciate close friends, and dare I say it, family. I would like to thank you all from the very bottom of my heart for bringing me the many pleasures that you have. (Don't think to deeply on that one... Woops... too late I guess. :P) Every single one of you has contributed to my life in one way or another and I am very glad I got to meet you all. I hope we can continue to stay friends like we have, and perhaps I can tempt some of you guys to come play SW:TOR with me. But you'll have to ask me about it in person if you'd like to know more, as I don't find this post the most appropriate place to do so in. :P

The other thing I have gained is that I now know more or less what it involves to lead a group/guild/legion. When I started out playing Aion, I had no experience what so ever. The road to leadership of a respectable legion such as ours has been one with lots of gained insight and wisdom along the road. And while this post isn't a goodbye just yet, in the end I can only think of one thing to actually say:

"Thank you"

Here's a song that is somewhat fitting by Krezip, a former dutch band that played this song as their last one before disbanding. I say somewhat fitting, because I hope WoL certainly doesn't disband! xD



Keep Strong, Spread the Love
Elroy aka "V" ^^

p.s. I have also canceled my subscription to Guildportal for this website, so you'll all start seeing the return of ads sometime sooner or later again. Just saying so you guys won't be hit by an heartattack when it happens. :P I was also thinking of handing over the admin rights to whoever will be leading the legion next.

Toshi and the Machinima machine :)

YYorle, Nov 8, 11 7:17 PM.
Aaaaand ACTION!!! (Be a star!)
 
Hey guys,
 
Toshi (Tzuko for those less familiar with him) came to us on behalve of his legion on Thor with a question that involved our RP-friendly legion. It seems they want to make a machinima video and they need some friendly asmodian actors for the job. The possibility of voice acting is present in the vid but by no means a requirement. Here is the original post of Toshi with his question, so be sure to respond if you feel like participating:


Aloha everyone!

Today I have a little request, you know I´m a mostly inactive lvl 28 but still sometimes online

Well you know my main legion meanwhile changed to Deltras Sturmlegion (Server Thor) and this Legion have a big RP background. 

So you can read in a other part of the Forum the Story of Xinyang (V: which can be found here), now the plan showed up, that we want make a machinima about it, but of course a part play on the Asmodian side

So some of us elyos create characteres for it on Perento and ask you know to be a part of this project it means as actor. 

Recording, cutting and so belong to us, if someone want also to speak some of the dialogs or monologs, let me know! *lookinh at Gertrude* may you want give Xinyang your voice? :>

I really hope you all will help us to make this Video possible!!!

lovely greetings
Tzuko

PS: I promise to don´t steal any of your pocketmoney if you help us! 



I like how you've incorperated Aion's lore regarding Deltra's Stormlegion. It's *ahum* common knowledge that broken up legions usually get remade (with the exception of extraordinairy legion such as the Red Sky legion). So I am kinda curious what the story of your Elysean legion is Toshi. Anyways, I hope some of us will be able to help you and your legion. ^^

Keep Strong, Spread the Love

2.7 is live!!! :D

YYorle, Oct 20, 11 7:52 AM.
Rawr... just, rawr (@ 2.7 & 3.0) :3
 
Hey guys,

As probably even the least perceptive of you have noticed, patch 2.7 is live on the EU servers! ^^ For those who wonder what this patch brings I have made (or rather copy pasted) a small summery for you from the official gameguide page. Also, I will shed some light on what's known about 3.0 so far thanks to our friend Rillas from IX Kohorta.


2.7 overview:

The new Crucible Coliseum PvP Arena, which includes two PvP inspired Instanced Dungeons!
  • The Arena of Discipline features one on one death matches in four different stages--brandish weapons and spells to dominate opponents, and earn crucible insignias and medals at their expense!
  • The Arena of Chaos features a frenzied ten Daeva free-for-all in six different stages--run, hide, and strike when opponents are at their most vulnerable to succeed in this ruthless environment, and earn crucible insignias and medals for wreaking carnage.

The new Padmarashka's Cave Alliance Instanced Dungeon, a reimagining of the Padmarashka encounter with new Quests, loot, and a few twists!

Numerous refinements to PvP in Balaurea, including improved Platinum Medal Quests, and retuned Mastarius and Veille encounters, offering additional rewards!

New rewards from the merchants in the Kaisinel Academy and Marchutan Priory, including powerful PvP equipment purchasable with currencies from the Crucible Coliseum.

Numerous refinements to existing skills, including reductions in the cooldowns and DP cost of several abilities.

Much, much, much more! (see link provided in intro)


 
Also, Rillas from IX Kohorta and the main reporter for Daeva's Report, has been very busy translating and bringing us the 3.0 patch notes as they went live on the korean servers. Follow this link to the her 3.0 'general' patch note page! I'll post a general summary of it, but if you want to see plenty of pictures better head there! :D


3.0 "General" Patch Notes

By Rillas @ Daeva's Report

(Again, look up the actual page for all the pictures. :D Also be aware this is a homemade translation using internet translators. Some things may be inaccurate because of this and as such are not to be considered hard facts. ^^)

[Character]
  • Level cap is increased up to 60. Because of that, new rank/levels of skills will be added. Also new skills will be added (including one new Greater Stygma).
  • Cap for Magic Boost has be adjusted. (Unknown in what way)
  • Amount of exp needed to level 46-50 has been adjusted. Also exp boost from Energy of Salvation and Energy of Respose between these levels have been adjusted.
  • New type of skill has been added. New type is “recurrent skill” which can be used x times after skill is activated. Number above skill icon indicate how many times skill can be used. (See Daeva's Report for graphical representation)
  • Various skills have been tweaked. (No translation available at the time of writing)
[Housing]
  • One of the most key feature is 3.0 is new housing system. Daevas can buy, build and customize theirs houses.
  • Two new house zone have been added – one for Elyos near capital city Sanctum and one for Asmodians near capital city Pandaemonium. Players will have access to new area from ? and Gelkmaros (Asmo) and ? and Inggison (Elyos). (Check out the vids posted on Daeva's Report blogs to see how enormously huge this place is. It seems the lv 21 quest gives you a basic appartement, very nice :D)
  • There will be 5 kinds of houses. Basic one will be obtained from quest and all players above 21 level can get them, more luxury one can be bought from AH or upgraded in other way.
  • More luxury houses can be bought during action, tho character level will determinates if they can participate in auction of certain kind of house. Daevas can buy or sell theirs houses on Broker, auction will be open up to two weeks and after the end highest bid wins.
  • Daevas can customize and decorate theirs houses! In the right-bottom corner there will be icon to enter “decorating mode”. Both external and internal apperance can be customize. Depending on the house type, there will be limited amount of items that can be put in house.

[New Zones]
  • Two new zones will be added – Sarpan and Tiamaranta [unofficial English names!]
  • Some regions of Tiamaranta and some regions of existing zones (?) will be flagged and “neutral” – PvP between Elyos and Asmo will be impossible there. Also chat, trade, party invites will be impossible. Dualing will be allow in this areas. (Seems the Reians act as the inbetween of Elyos and Asmodians, not allowing them to hurt eachother :P)
[New Instances]
  • Six new instances will be added. A solo one, regular group one, 12-man one, higher lv (58-60) group one, a 24-man one, and a yet to be revealed one. :)
[Fortress and Sieges]

[Crucible Arena]
  • There will be some changes in Arena systems (Arena of Discipline / Chaos). Players will be awarded with some new tokens / insignias based on theirs results: players with places 2-10 (chaos arena) and place 2 (discipline arena) will get these new items, which can be later exchange for some boxes. Some helpful items can be acquired from these boxes to help Daevas on the arenas (10 min cooldown)
  • Opening these new boxes will have a small chance to give player transformation item, which will transform them into special form. (Picture shows the same form as the Taloc transformation! aka the General transform aka 100k HP + extra skills! :D)

  • New kind of medal will be added also fountains now will give players quests to obtain these medals. (?)
  • New 60 level series were added to be bought with Crucible Insignias.
  • New 60 level Daevaion series quest chain is added.
  • Some new enchanting system was been added (unknown yet how this exactly works)
  • Some more fixes and changes to already existing items.
[Crafting]
  • New profession – Carpentry, will be added which will allow players to create furnitures for Daevas’ houses.

[UI]
  • New option to draw on map has been added. Players can draw on map by clicking on “draw button” on the right-bottom corner of the map. Players can send “drawing” to chat, party chat, legion chat ect. Players can save theirs “drawings”. ( I suggest checking out Daeva's Report for pictures! :D)
  • Maps has been added to instances:
  • Some changes to transparent map had been added.
  • In the Broker window new categories of items (decorations, furnitures ect.) have been added.

    Macros can’t have
  • And more…

That's all of it. Be sure to check out Deava's Report 3.0 general patchnotes for all the relevant pictures and what not. And be sure to thank Rillas a lot for all the effort she's going through. :)



There you go, a very long post. Hope you guys didn't get tired reading it. I sure am excited abotu 2.7 and what's in store with 3.0 and can't wait for that patch. I also absolutely love the new arena and how easy it has become to get some good lv 55 starter PvP armor from it. Anyways, happy gaming guys! :D

Cloak colour and Boudokai event

YYorle, Oct 11, 11 6:03 AM.
*Ahum* attention please, your input is required :D

Hey guys,

As you might have all noticed I've been fooling around with the background colour of our emblem quite a lot lately. Since there seems to be many opinion on what it should be, I decided to work on putting up a poll. I have finally finished it last night and I would like you all to vote on the colour you like best (and preferably post something as well :P). You can find the post/poll here.

Another topic I would like your attention for is the Boudokai event by Eri's hand. I was asked to put up a basic suggestion on WoLnet and would like for all of you to share your thoughts on it. I have written down the specifics we have so far in this post, but for those that cba to check it out, here's the nutshell version. :P

  • The idea is a Boudokai like tournament. For those who don't know what this is, it's the Dragon Ball tournaments where contestants fight each other one-on-one in a knock-out elimination. This means that players who have been defeated will have to leave the tournament.
  • After everyone who wishes to pertake in this tournament has registered, there will be a classic pick-a-paper to determine who will fight who after every contestant has been asigned a number.
  • The setting (for now) is the Pandeamonium arena
  • Players will have to participate in standard PvE gear. How exactly is yet to be determined as we flesh out the rules, but it is meant to make for longer battles and fairness of play.

Anyways, I hope you allwill be able to share you thought on both these subjects, after all we all form WoL together, not just a few individuals such as yours truly.xD That being said, anyone looking forward to 2.7 already? :3

Keep Strong, Spread the Love
