I've recently quit WoW for a few reasons, one being that so many new games were coming out that I wanted to try, plus WoW is just one of those games that has you completely hooked from the start, therefore I wanted to get out early before it had me completely hooked/addicted haha.

Anyway, I've been looking around for a new MMORPG for a while, and heard about Warhammer Online & Aion: Towers of Eternity. Now obviously Warhammer is already out, but Aion is set to come out in the UK at the end of the month (AFAIK it's UK release date is 30/01/2009).

I'll probably be choosing either Warhammer Online or Aion. I know most there is to know about Warhammer having done a lot of research on it, but I'm not sure just WHY Aion is so anticipated. I see comments all over the net saying things like "I can't WAIT until Aion comes out, it's gonna be amazing" and "Aion is what all other MMO's should be like" etc. It also is the most anticipated game over at www.mmorpg.com, so I'm just wondering WHY it is.

One of the only things I know so far is that it's made by the same company that made Guild Wars right (PlayNC)? Guild Wars was an amazing game, I liked it a lot, so Aion seems to be down my street so to speak :)

Although, one thing I did hear was that it's a Korean game, therefore getting it translated into English for European players will present a problem and the game may have a lot of language bugs etc. Is this true?

Thanks for any replies.

I think you get an ability that lets you fly and some pretty decent combat. Not too sure, i don't really keep watch on pc games anymore.

Merchandise inventory management is a constant battle for those who have high-volume eBay businesses. Yet if a seller wants to know how to make money selling on eBay one of the keys to success is that inventory management. The lower the amount of cash that is invested in inventory on-hand and the higher the sales, the more likely the odds are for business success. So how can a seller know when the right level of inventory has been established? How can a seller know when the right level of inventory has been achieved? Those who know how to make money selling on eBay know that there are several components to the perfect answer. The right answer is based on current sales levels, inventory currently on hand, orders for new resale merchandise that are in transit, and the level of safety stock that is desired. All of these factors combine to provide the answer. Do you want to know how to make money selling on eBay? Start by taking all of the inventory components and creating the right inventory levels for your eBay business. Place the current numbers for your eBay business into the following formula:smile.gif

Hello, Big-V

This is some new information about Aion for you Massive Gamer Magazine

I myself have been playing AION from korean open beta test. I don't know Korean and I'm not from Korea. I'm from Russia.

Talking about game: it is really amazing. I've never seen such a great game before. It has advantages of such games as WoW and Lineage II but it is much better then they are. It is a new page in history of mmorpg.

These are my videos: Asmodians Aion_Asmodians_Movie_1.avi - FileFront.com Elyos (pvp) aion_ranger_movie1.avi - FileFront.com

My Korean friend registrated an account for me. My boy friend bought an account here You can also buy timecards there.

First days you have to get used with all because language is korean X_X But it was not hard for me as I've played many mmorpg games before... Anyway many koreans speak english and can help you if you don't understand something.

Without knowing of language i can understand 85% of the game and i really enjoy it.

Those who are afraid to try because of foreign language are fools ;p UK gonna be very late... Stop waiting start playing ^^

RickyL;4754474I think you get an ability that lets you fly and some pretty decent combat. Not too sure, i don't really keep watch on pc games anymore.

You get wings after 10 lvl quest! Every class has various combat skills. Here is information about classes and skills: Classes of Aion - Hellbound - Aion Gaming Guild and Community

There are two races Asmodian(black angels) and Elyos(white angels). They are in war. (RvR system) Every race has its own continent where they can grind in peace. The Abyss separates the continents. 2 races fight in the abyss. There are also castles in the abyss and special artefacts. Abyss is devided into 3 parts (lower, upper, balaurs' abyss) Balaurs' abyss is the most dangerous place with the most powerful monsters. Btw Balaurs are the third race (pc race) They take part in sieges helping the weakest side.

Abyss is the best place for grinding (monsters are easy to kill, good %, good drop rate, etc) but enemy can easily kill you.

For fighting with other race you recieve abyss points with the help of which you can buy armors, weapons and other goods in the abyss shops.

Person who gets the most number of abyss points becomes hero. (1 hero in each race) http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/2771/86270386xp7.jpg

Sometimes special portal opens in a random place on each continent and you can go and kill enemies on their continent.

This is not all information about Aion. But I've told you things that i like in this game.
