This post will be updated from time to time so pay attention to the update date :last update: 28 July 2009 modified guild name
Hello guys, as you know wow isn't coming anything soon, Blizzard and Netease are having authorisation problem to run the game, and nobody knows when this affair finish.

But rejoice, caus the gods sent us a bone to gnaw, and this one ain't bad!!!cheers cheers cheers

For a Brief overview AION is the last mmorpg made by NCSoft(lineage, Guildwars), gameplay wise Aion feels a lot like Guildwars, or a neverwinter night, meaning that you can play entirely with your mouse without being totally owned like in wow.(So don't expect playing a wow-like chinese ).

A to Z How to : from installation, to account creation follow the link bellow, it will provides all the info you'll need to play, seriously all(you need to register in their forum to see the links)
http://www.elitepvpers.de/forum/aion-guides-strategies/230364-how-aion-faqs-guides-links.html

We have started a small community at the following place :

Server(the one you choose on the launcher) : 一区(华中电信)central China to ensure best ping for everyone.
realm : israpel(天燕座*)*second symbol of the chinese name isn't exactly the same but I couldn't find the right name. be carefull because two realm start with 天and finish with 座
faction : Elyos(angel like guys)
Guild : Forgotten Lords of Atreia, for invite contact Aethelfaed, Teerdus, Alc, Avariel
Playing there : Shadowstep, LittleBich, Kalan, ashraa, Aine, GazardEIl, Twistedsis, serulas, 妃子, dilan, Alc, HalloKitty, Samyaza, Aethelfaed(waiting for more)

If you decide to join us here are some guides you may want to read :
http://www.aionarmory.com/search.aspx?browse=133

Hope to see you soon guys, it's not about stopping to play wow, but it's always good to have an alternative when things turns bad. Aion is good, you can try it for free(10hours), gamecards are available everywhere, seriously don't hesitate anymore.

Cool!
But why Cow Eaters... I mean I know it's the first foreingers guild in WoW CN... But, not epic at all!
I mean... I dunno, call it Exodus or smthing. Exodus would represent us, switching from place to place in wow, to finally run and come to Aion. Right? ( thanks Gruumsh44)

And you took the Elyos... Oh well...
'This result has caused the Elyos to become arrogant and believe that they are blessed by Aion, '
It's like blood elves all over again...

Type CowEaters on google and you'll understand why this guild is epic. ^^
We moved to Elyos caus there was already some people who leveled their chars for some time, besides there is a French guild there as well. As the community has a lot of french speakers it can open some opportunities for some activities.Once I also saw some guys speaking english on the looking for group channel.

I got the game working over a 24 hour peroid and I must say I am very impressed with the game so far. Still feels a bit like its in Beta but runs smooth with 0 lag on my old computer (except in that big spiral city) so i am happy.

But yeah for anyone looking to check out a very cool new online game i strongly suggest AION

can recharge my account from my phone here in china which is very convenient.

I want my wings ^^

how do i recharge?

All the posts i find on the net are for people in the US to recharge on ebay etc?

I just wanna use a gamecard from the shop..

....saying that i still can get it to run properly on Win7 and it appears server 4 is offline now anyway so i cant even connect from a laptop Sad

It is fun, but don't compare it to WOW as its simply not good enough, but its a nice alternative. The combat is very nice, kinda reminds me of the old EQ2 dys with combos

To recharge from you chinese mobile phone:

Not sure but i think you have to pay a fee when charging by phone (possibly up to 10 yuan)

http://wpay.sdo.com/Index.aspx?fromold=1&type=aionhome

or look for 手机直充 on the left menu
-----------------------------------------------------
to recharge with card:

http://wpay.sdo.com/Index.aspx?fromold=1&type=aionhome

or look for 盛大卡充值 on left menu


seems you have to be logged in to AION wesite if you want link to work directly.

I think 1 yuan = 2 hoours 5 minutes of game time

Big thanks to Bol for taking the time to collecting this information, posting it and helping ppl get setup for play!!!!

I hope ppl install the game and give it a try....1st 10 hours are free so you have nothing to lose. If you hate it delete it from harddisk and walk away.

However if you like it you will find a cple of other dedicated players willing to give the game a go while we wait for cwow to ressurect.

lookforward to seeing you in game

will this be similar to wow in that we can have characters on different realms?

i would love to try all the factions in this game...

and yes Exodus would be a meaningful name right now for all of us.
but i am sure the Elyos like eating beef too!! lol

Gruumsh44, yeah you have 10hours free on every area, there's like 12 area, so you can try all the faction.

Now if some people doesn't like the guild name, nothing in this world is settle in the stone, I just found that CowEaters was a good one caus it's direclty related to this website, and if you type coweaters in google first results points you toward our forums. Exodus is nice but I don't think that Exodus guild will let us advertise for Aion in their forums, "Ya see za differance Cutter?".

Yeah k...
But Cow Eaters doesn't make any GOOD sense here... You're playing cool and epic angel like dude, but you're guild is called Cow Eaters? And it's not like Exodus owned the name... Oh well.

Here are some other fun ideas. I knw, I was looking for epic, but... there is a GUY named littlebich...

bollocks!!

I didnt select an area when running the cards

http://wpay.sdo.com/Index.aspx?fromold=1&type=aionhome

can anyone with chinese skils or a chinese wife please tell me what the default in the dropdown is(the first one with no server number by it)? I'm really hoping that its just stored the cash on my account someplace and i can move it to my server to charge up??

If so any hep in doing this would be highly appreciated!! many thanks in advance! - Rec

...phew...think i figured it with random button mashing!

SELECT THE SERVER wen paying by card, its not like wow where u just charge the account. If u dont luckily ur time goes onto ur SDO account and then u transfer it to whatever game u want. if u do **** up like me, click te top option on the left side menu, log in..it will display ur units in red, 1st menu select aion (yong heng zhi ta), second selct the server , 1 in my case, 3rd type the number of units u want to put in there.

sorted

haha I'm easy at the moment, really into aion.

will see ho it goes, from a tanking point of view its great, a lot more tactically than WOW and the stance dance is back!! ..kinda, you get to blow all the sword and board CD's pop a shield and switch to a big 2H and mash em up...wicked fun..

..gonna plug on and see how it gets as I level..but so far very impressed.

no real gripes, the character models are incredible, but the mobs etc are a bit shit in comparison, soun effects for footsteps etc are straight out of a 16bit console and there is more spam than in a coal miners lunchbox, other than those minor things its a really nice game, so far very balanced and well designed and a breath of fresh air from WOW.

At the very least everyone is not running around looking the same, even if you have the same armour you can dye it or import texture mapping from other items so i believe..

...its the game WAR failed to be and a bit more... i will shut up now...but come join us and i'm sure u won't care however long it is until WOW is back up...

RegonAls, it cost nothing to have a toon in Aion, even when wow Is back. Aion Is a good game, and I wish the developpers are gonna do all they can to make it better. It's always nice to have an alternative. Actually with wow besides raiding on my pally and pvping there nothing I really wanna do. So I'm happy to know that now, when there won't be any raiding night or I'm tired of killing people in wsg, I can log in Aion and taste something different.

EDIT: problem,,, used Adult id generator and registered. but Venuins/GazardIEl accounts say they have to log off or suffer child consequenses... those accounts were abandoned and now Aine and GazardEIl are online (so far so good)

Twistedsis (aka Twisted) is on as well... all Elyos all israpel...

Copy enu.pak in the L10 folder, then change the windows *standards and format* to English US(carefull English GB won't work), it's in the configuration panel under regional settings. Then you re done.

Yeah so far we are all playing elyos. Some foreigners outisde of the wow in chinese community are also joining our guild. Asmodian are cool I admit, but Elyos zones looks much better, I think would be dumb to split in two groups just because of the faction. We rather be 20 playing in Elyos faction than 10 Elyos 10 Asmodian, but that's just me...

Aethelfaed the best is to follow the HowTo I linked on the first post. You don't need to know chinese to have the game running, just follow the links and you are done. See you later ingame Wink

I followed this guide and read all the forum topics about it but for some reason when I go to install the game it tells me the data.zip file is encrypted, since I cant read the chinese website I presumed the MD5 was some type of encryption key so tried to point this to my data.zip file and it just gives me a key which is NOT the password, in the forums this was mentioned several times but nobody actually said a definitive way of getting round this.

I've tried installing like three different versions now and all of them state the data.zip is encrypted (kind of silly to encrypt an install file in my opinion), any ideas about how to get round this or is there another way to install the game that prevents this from happening.



So on further inspection I thought to check the Data.z.01-03 files and for some reason from all the mirrors I was downloading them from they seem to be stopping at like 200-400mb rather than d/l the full file (maybee due to a time out considering I'm downloading a 112gb file worth of music/videos from another program atm). Not sure if not having these full data files is what was causing the data.zip to encounter this error but put my d/l on hold for the moment and re-trying the 2 files that atm have not fully downloaded (4hours left). Will see if this resolves the problem then go from there.

The picture in my post says what? If it's corrupted or incomplete files then that would be good as it means I'm on the right track (is it necessary to actually extract the data.zip file or can you install Aion with it still in it's zip format, if that is the case it will solve all of my problems as soon as the d/l are complete, but if your meant to extract it then I will still have the same issue of the encrypted password issue).

Oh thought I'd add this photo of the awesome foursome>>>at least for now in three weeks when they are chewing everything and causing carnage I'll have to think of a new name.

I have no idea where this problem comes from. You can try to go on http://aion.sdo.com/guide.html and redownload their packages(you must download the installer and all the Data packages, they also have a BT install.

Okay I have several questions about the game and I don't have time to read everything you wrote, so sorry if the questions have been asked already.

1. Can we switch the language from Chinese to English or French ?
2. If we buy the game in France, can we still play on Chinese Realms or is it as fucked up as wow (meaning we have to change realmlist.wtf each time, we have to be synch on patches, ...)
3. Is PvP interesting ? Are there any BGs or anything ?

Thanks.

OMFG chinese make things so damn difficult.

For anyone trying to follow the guide it's good for setting up an account but for installing just download from the chinese website and then manually patch it or you will end up with a stupid NCLauncher that is re-downloading the entire game from scratch like I did.

So much hassle just to try to access these stupid games it better be worth it

Hirna yes you can play in english for now, it's not guarantee that the patch will work in future release. I dunno for french version working in China caus it's not even out in europe. Dunno about pvp still leveling.

So yer I played till 4am this morning and then had no time to play all day (not just cause I had no time left, but literally no time...between sleeping till miday then cleaning my whole house, washing the puppies and doing some more painting).

Going down to buy some lunch now and a few cards so should be on most of the night.... level 15 already though (what level are most of you guys at now?).

Ah things that make me want to go back to WoW if they release WOLK in China (if it's just TBC I might stick with AION if it gets better at higher level):

1. The sounds in the game are annoying (chanter casting at least as well as the hit sounds for physical damage done to enemies sounds like a grunting rhino thats had it's head bashed in with a brick).

2. The fact that in city you have to run everywhere and it's long and tiresome distances just for one stupid thing.

3. Proffesions are somewhat confusing with no clear explanation of how many you can obtain (took cooking thinking like WoW it was a secondary proffesion now I can't take armorsmithing...not sure whether this is available at certain level or I'm just stuck as chief tucker Fu**er upper for the rest of my chanter career).

4. The economy is totally screwed already on this server, not sure about others, the price for materials or items is overly exorbant with some of the rarest round level 45-50 costing around 28 million gold (even if you can farm alot I think this is just another case of gold farming gone crazy).

5. SPAM (omfg, I thought WoW china was bad..it pales in comparison to AION...the spam is so bad you may as well disable all global chat and just use one of the private channels or just guild if you want to talk to anyone), you have a slim chance with them active of even seeing a whisper if someone sends one to you.

6. OMG wtf is with like 2-4 skills only as a chanter/cleric (not sure about other classes) for at least nearly 15 levels. It reminds me alot of guildwars with only 8 available skills usable (but at least there you could choose from like 50 skills for your class). I'm really hoping at higher level this gets alot more diverse as otherwise this is going to just be another MMO mash fest.

Stating all these points as negative it is still one of the best alternatives to WoW and I think once you hit a higher level bar the game with friends or a guild could be alot of fun.

Don't let these things put you off I'm still relativley new to the game and while I stated alot of negatives there is alot of positives as well

Scenery = good
Flying = interesting change for an mmo
Quests = alot
Bosses/Enemies = alot of new and different things not seen before in most MMO's
Interface = 8/10 (health bars of enemies not showing % or amount is a little annoying, although there may be an option to change this which I have yet to discover).

All in all I'd give Aion about a 7-7.5/10

Worth a play but unless it's uber great PVE at high level nothing more than a temporary fix till China WOLK for me!!!
