Aion 4.0's Official North American Patch Notes Are Out!

First patch notes, then the patch! Please?

Those of you keeping an eye on Aion's status today eagerly awaiting the 4.0 launch are no doubt frustrated by the maintenance extension. With an estimated 6 additional hours of downtime, this mega-hyped Daeva doesn't have much to do but sit here and stare at the NCWest Aion Twitter account waiting for updates.

[Update: The launcher is now working! Boot the game from the Aion executable or shortcut to begin!]

Perhaps not as exciting as the actual Aion 4.0 launch is the release of patch notes, linked on the official Twitter and subsequently linked right here. Good thing we have a while to wait, because within that .pdf file lies 62 pages of information on what we're about to see later today. It's a long read!

It's hard to believe it's been almost a year since 4.0 was revealed, and even harder to believe that the update is coming our way less than a year after its Korean release. It feels like just yesterday Aion was still pay to play and we were still on 2.9. Sigh~

Let's hope they get the issues sorted out soon. I can't wait to see the new UI in action, try out the new classes, and run around Katalam like it's nobody's business. Choo choo!

Ogryns are good lads. Simple as. Anyway, I'm basically a human tornado and I love jank. Also simple as.

    Hello. Um, just a quick question. Does Aion still have regional restrictions against countries like the Philippines? I wanted to try the game out 2 years ago, but was IP blocked, and I'm not sure where to get answers.

    From Googling it, it seems there isn't an IP block anymore BUT there aren't any solid answers to the questions. I'd say ask on the official forums : http://forums.na.aiononline.com/na/forumdisplay.php?f=22

    Most of the people on the NA server aren't even from NA. It's mostly populated with people from South America, Europe, and Australia. I'm just not totally clear on NCSoft's IP policy toward SEA.

    I just created a Technist Elyos on the Tiamat server, however I can change servers if need be. Named Areinafrostheart.

    Pfft no. If you patch up to 4.0 when it launches and want to play, I'll play a lowbie with you. 1 to 10 in less than two hours almost guaranteed. I'm still trying to decide on Songweaver or Gunslinger.
