Today is Sept. 2, and what does this mean?? That open beta for Aion starts in 4 more days!! :) Aion is the next big MMO on people's lips right now. Not even warhammer had this much talk about it when it was still in beta. I wont even talk about warhammer after release, cuz it was utter junk. This new MMO seems to have what a lot of other great MMO's have, and then some. You may have noticed something in the image above, she has wings! Now wings are epic and all, but how about the ability to fight while your flying! Now that's really epic.

Now this game will never pass WoW up in my heart, nor do I think it has the chance of ever topping wow, or lasting as long. But for now, this looks like a great game that I can't wait to get my hands on in beta. In this post I'll try to gather as much things together for you, my reader, so that you don't have to dig to much for it. I hope to see you in beta. I'll more then likely be playing a Cleric name seokid, or tohaku.

Aion Classes Preview Video

Mages have weak physical combat ability but they can launch devastatingly powerful magic attacks, they are the primary ranged magical damage dealers. There are two specializations possible for mages: Spiritmasters and Sorcerers.

Spiritual warriors, priests can use healing and self-protection spells to excel in melee combat, and launch powerful ranged magic attacks too. This makes them not only useful support characters in a party of adventurers, but also powerful combatants in their own right. There are two priest specializations: Clerics and Chanters

The scout combines great agility with swift attacks. Scouts must specialize into one of two sub-classes: Ranger or Assassin

Warriors excel in close-quarter combat. Strong performers in a wide range of situations, Warriors are relatively easy to master. Warriors must specialize into one of two sub-classes: gladiators, who concentrate on dealing damage (DPS), or templars, who combine fierce fighting with defensive chants and techniques (tanks).

The name Aion reminded me of Chrno Crusade! :) Have you seen that anime?
