AION 3.1 Brings Back More Open World PvP
ByDate: 03-05-2012 Views:
Sarpan and Tiamaranta are two new zones in AION 3.0 for players to level up, explore and do crafting. NCsoft makes most of the new areas neutral zone and doesn't allow players to do pvp there and it seems that those who were complaining about free open world pvp before will be happy to see the change. However, it's hard to please all, the change in update 3.0 dissatisfies PvP fans and NCsoft has to make another balance in AION 3.1.
Patch 3.1 has been released in Korea and might be available in Chinese server soon. In this update, PvP areas in Sarpan and Tiamaranta are expanded and the new map becomes more dangerous. Players can travel between neutral area and pvp zone by using the teleport devices in the border. More risks bring in more rewards - the new PvP zone is now more rewarding. AION players, what do you think the change will affect you?
In addition to the balance between PvE and PvP area, AION 3.1 adds a new instance for level 55-60 players. This 6-man instance offers normal and difficult versions, each of which can be entered under certain condition. Meanwhile, there are some adjustments for old instances (Tahmes, Sand Lord's Lair, etc.) and Siege gameplay in Tiamaranta region.
AION will release update 3.0 in NA and EU soon and update 3.1 could be released later.
