Default 4.0 Forum Q&A Part 2

Hi all,
I've gone ahead and created a new thread for the forum 4.0 Q&A. Here you can see answers we have so far from the submitted questions from our very own production member, Saja.
See second post for answers and updates from Saja.
Remember, this thread is specifically for questions you have about 4.0 for Saja. Please keep other discussions on separate threads.

Off topic comments and questions will be subjected to moderation.
If you are experiencing launcher issues, please refer to this thread.

We will answer questions in batches and certain questions may need verification so those questions may take longer to answer. Please allow for turnaround time on your questions. If your question has not been answered, it is because 1. we are verifying the answer or 2. we do not have an answer at this time.

Ask away!

Default Re: 4.0 Forum Q&A Part 2

LAST EDITED WEDNESDAY, 6/26/2013 03:14 CDT TO FINALIZE POST.

Hello everyone. Iím Saja from the Aion production team. Itís my pleasure to make your acquaintance. To be clear, I am not new to the company and Iíve worked closely with Valor and the others for a long time Ė Iíve always been a forum lurker. But I wanted to provide something of a personal response to your inquiries from the production team. I will introduce myself more personally in another thread later, but Iíd like to share some answers to your questions now.

I understand and appreciate your curiosity about the upcoming launch of Dark Betrayal. Weíre just as excited as you are and we are busy working hard to make a successful launch that you will all enjoy. There truly is a lot to do, but we will do our best to carve time out to address concerns and answer questions that you have. I will answer questions in this post and edit it with more information or answers in the way of updating the list without making you all hunt through the thread.

What I ask in return is a little patience for this to happen, as well as understanding that we cannot get to every question Ė though I promise we will do our best. If it seems I skipped over your question or do not answer it, there could be several reasons including (a) I didnít see it or just didnít get to it yet, (b) I need to check the answer, (c) it was sufficiently answered elsewhere or cannot be answered at this time, (d) the question is actually a couched criticism or attempt to create an argument, or (e) some other reason. Please do not be offended if your question isnít immediately answered.

Before we get started, one important answer Ė patch notes accompany the patch and will be released along with the update, not sooner. Sorry if this disappoints anyone but that is the procedure. Until then, we hope you will continue to keep an eye on the Dark Betrayal web site as new information is released. We will also try to answer your questions here as we are able.

I know how you feel about the bots and RMT spamming, so I wanted to make sure not to avoid this question. Despite many comments to the contrary, we actually do take bots and gold sellers seriously and conduct many efforts to combat them. We are constantly updating and optimizing our methods to be more efficient and effective Ė this is not just some stock answer we give when the subject comes up, itís actually true. As GM Spam has noted elsewhere, we cannot go into great detail about this to preserve that efficacy. Please rest assured that we are not ďasleep at the wheelĒ on this issue and are always trying to make our servers a pleasant place to be for our real players.

While I cannot verify what is meant by ďall the nerfsĒ I can say that yes, we will be releasing a more updated patch than other territories did initially. There will be two new classes available immediately at launch, the Songweaver and the Gunslinger. There will also be 11 new instances to enjoy from day 1 (or as soon as you reach the required level, I suppose) Ė please continue to check out the Dark Betrayal site for information on the new content.

A fresh server is needed for the new incoming classes.
Fresh servers are always exciting but keep in mind that how much time is required to ďcompeteĒ as well as what constitutes ďgeared enoughĒ vary widely depending on who you ask. That said, we have no plans for a new server and believe our existing servers are currently adequate to have an enjoyable experience for all our players.

There will be 2 new base classes (Technist and Muse) to play on June 26th. These progress to the two new ascended classes: the Gunslinger and the Songweaver. There will be no other new classes at 4.0 launch, and Korea has not released any more info about an additional class.

More GM events is something we would definitely like to do, however we are hoping to avoid another St. Patrickís Day Massacre.

Sorry, there will not be additional character slots available at launch. Same answer for the dance emotes.

The Tahabata weapon box does drop weapons for the new classes (Tahabataís Pistol or Tahabataís Aethercannon for Gunslinger and Tahabataís Harp for Songweaver).

The level cap for Fast-Track Server will not be increased. However, Inggison and Gelkmaros will be accessible. Players will also be able to enter Udas and Lower Udas.

Can we know if we are wasting our time with mith medals quests or not, please?

Thanks
Yes there are NPCís for changing Mithril medals into Ceramium medals. Itís not a direct trade with a set rate. Also, itís actually not a fountain but various Shugos you talk to.

e.g. I've read that gunners use MB stats, so I am wondering if any tailor designs are being added for new leather gear but with gunners in mind.


I'm also curious if there will be designs for weapons (eg harps etc) including lowbie designs (level 15-50 range).


Thanks :3
I know youíve been on pins and needles waiting to know what looms ahead in this area, and I donít intend to string you along. Anyway I wonít spin you a yarn: there are no new tailor designs at the lower levels.

However there are indeed new low-level designs for crafting weapons for the new classes. Pistols and Aethercannons fall under Weaponsmithing and harps are Handicrafting.

Itís basically ďskinningĒ titles except you donít need to go to a special NPC to do it - you can handle it all from your Titles UI for free. Itís totally intuitive. As you describe, you choose a title for others to see and a title that provides you the stats. For example, you can run around with the ďStraw for BrainsĒ title above your head while enjoying the benefits of the ďTop GunĒ stats. And yes, this function will be available at launch.

We are really excited about new and past players getting back into the game to experience the new content. Iíve seen a lot of comments around the web about people coming back to enjoy it and I hope youíll all join in welcoming new Daevas as they ascend also. As for marketing and drawing players to Aion, yes this is happening - specifics are handled by a different team so I donít have a lot of details for you right now but the short answer is yes.

The date is an important one and we are planning for it accordingly. Let me also say that our support team is awesome and always works incredibly hard to address player issues. This will certainly be the case for launch as well. I know everyone has natural concerns about launch day but rest assured that we have the bandwidth and that we will do our very best. I really think thatís all that can be said on this point.

At the least, could you confirm or debunk a certain skill for me? I was told about a skill Gladiators get that is a ranged jump aoe stun. Sort of like Heroic Leap for warriors in world of warcraft, except it stuns the targets hit.
The skill you mean is probably this one. Notice the glad lurking in the bushes then *BAM* leaping at that Crestlich. It does do an AOE damage but itís not a stun.

I very much appreciated the person who allow the port for the relic appraiser. So making the infamous "AP grind" more easier to stomach would seriously go a long way. Will we have to wait till release for more information (i.e. in patchnotes)?
I understand where you are coming from here. We have indeed been trying to make the management process you spoke of less of a burden for you. As for the answer to your question about the AP exchange merchant - you do not have to wait until the release. Yes the NPCís will be in our launch version. The amount of AP differs depending on the location of the NPC.

Yes. But if I understand your question correctly, this is possible now. Lower level quests can be undertaken, itís just that the map icon doesnít always display. Good luck getting all the titles by the way. As mentioned above, youíll be able to swap out the stats as you see fit.

New class discussion section for the Gunslinger is here.
New class discussion section for the Songweaver is here.

Hime made them for us. Thank you Hime!

So, It would be great if in the place of that Fixed AP amount needed, the game updated it with the last amount of AP that the last 1-Star officer currently has, for example.
The way the window functions will not change.

There are Ceramium Medal designs for Armorsmithing and Tailoring also but they do not make use of Mithrils. They also require level 500 in their respective fields.

and why cant we use numbers now?
No, you will not be able to use numbers in character names. Without going into a lot of technical detail, the reason special characters (including numbers) are not allowed is to maintain database consistency and to prevent other technical issues from arising. There is also the aesthetic reason but I know it can be argued that is subjective.

On the plus side, you will be able to use capital letters at any place in your name once 4.0 launches.

I've been told that we can use it to only lv 1-60 eternal gears.

Please confirm it for me thank you.
I actually meant to address this above, but it may not have been clear so let me restate it: the current felicitous socketing items that are available on the store have a level range up to 60 as you state. The level range for these items will not increase automatically at launch. This means you cannot use the current felicitous socketing items on Level 65 eternal gear.

As I alluded earlier, Iím reluctant to get drawn into discussions about why we did x instead of y for such subjective things in this thread as it could probably go on endlessly. But I will take the bait this time. We thought the names sounded cool, were unique, and adequately portrayed the classes. There was no ulterior reason. I personally think the names are great and more appealing than your alternatives but accept that you disagree.

Speaking of things that are unique, I will also take this opportunity to mention the writing effort that went into this release and in fact goes into all our updates. An absolutely awesome team of immensely talented writers prepared the quests, dialogs, item names, and countless other things to create an immersive and enjoyable experience for you.

Some of the new quest names are downright hilarious and you actually can gain a lot by reading through them instead of just clicking through quickly (something I am admittedly too often guilty of when playing games). I personally think this experience is one of the things that really makes NA Aion shine and also believe that they donít get enough credit for the amazing work that they do. Iím sure many of you will agree.

Most of the lower level zones will get additional channels for fast track. This includes Heiron and Beluslan. No additional channels are planned for standard servers at this time. Channels is something we can monitor and adjust if necessary.

Will the 4.0 update only include Inggison and Gelkmaros but not Silentera Canyon or at least an entrance to Besh that we can access from the FTS?

Naav
Hi Naav. Iím sorry to disappoint you and your friends but Silentera isnít included and Besh cannot be accessed through FTS. I think itís awesome that you were able to meet a good group of friends from different servers on the Fast Track but there are some drawbacks I suppose.

There are indeed Shapers of Dusk / Wrights of Dawn designs available for the new class weapons.

The patch will be in the area of 4.5 GB.

You could also get them from the following instances: Ophidan Bridge, Danuar Sanctuary, Infinity Shard, and Eternal Bastion.

Fragmented Ceramium also has the potential to be turned into Ceramium Medals and is obtainable through quests / instances.

You acquire the quests from Shugos in neutral zones but for the most part you will have to venture into the PvP areas in order to complete the quests. It may be best to group up.

There are daily quests for ancient coins. There are also quests that can only be completed once.

Daily quests give you 5 or 6 each and there are a few you can do. One-time quests give you more, generally 25 or 30. You can get around 600 from completing all the 1-time quests.

You cannot transfer existing characters to the new classes. You would have to make a new character.

You are right Ė that would not be ideal. However whether or not a letter is capitalized does not matter when comparing character names. So if a character named Thisguy already exists, nobody will be able to make ThisGuy. You still might have to keep your guard up for ThatGuy though.

I tried to answer this a few times but want to make this clear: the current ones will not be modified. You should not expect to use them for level 65 gear. Sorry but I have nothing else to add to this point at the moment.

Itís a morph. The NPC selling the designs has a chance to appear when you take Crumbling Redoubt, which is one of the bases in Katalam.

I thought I saw pictures on a small indie website but I wanted to confirm if we will get them or not.

Thanks.
Well youíll have a few options here. The magic boost dagger is not a myth. You can acquire the item shown below with ancient coins:



4.0 also brings new Idian items that can add temporary additional stats to your weapon. There are a few different ones (physical attack / defense, magical attack /defense, etc.) and the stats of each type are generally applied randomly, but you can do fun things like this:

Here is the schedule. Sillus Fortress is in Katalam and the others are in Danaria. Some of the heart times are being replaced.



EDIT: No more space! Finalizing post here and will respond in the thread.

Are we getting the NPCs that allow us to turn in our old AP gears in exchange for AP?

In the last major update, part of it was removed due to the "localization" (namely the DE buff). Is there plan to do the same thing this time with 4.0 content. If so, what are we losing?

Also are there any chance we will ever get the DE buff or do you feel it would impact the BCM too much to allow player to get more and better stones?

Are we going to get the NPC that lets you exchange your old abyss armor into AP or is it being kept out cause of the item that's sold in the cash shop?

I meant to says that some classes got their skills nerfed so they wont be too powerful like one of the bard resistant buff, as we all know their buffs are very powerful in pvp so kr/ru and jp had to nerfs it down A LOT to make it balance in pvp. They also made some of the new instances a bit easier as well in their previous patches.

Anyway i still have another questions about the "Felicitous Manastone Bundle", seem we already have the fable and eternal, are we going to have one for mythic gears too?

What new updates are planned or housing and the Construction crafting skill?

Can Construction get some battlefield use items?
