Aion preorder collectors details

For those interested in this game. Played some of the beta, its pretty much like WoW but prettier and with extra stuff you can do. I enjoyed it. As pretty as it looks this is the old Far Cry engine, so you wont need a beast of a system to play it.

Quote:
# 6.5"-tall, large-chested. hand-painted figurine of Aiva, a winged Asmodian Daeva
# Exclusive in-game items, including:

* Black Cloud Wings (gives 40 seconds of additional flight time)
* Black Cloud Earring (gives an HP and an MP boost)
* Special character title with stat boost
* Color dye to tint one in-game item
* Two character emotes
* Official Aion soundtrack CD

# Two dual-sided, full-color posters
# Full-color, trifold quick reference card
# Two game DVDs
# Game manual
# First 30 days of gameplay

The Aion Limited Collector’s Edition will sell at an anticipated price of €69.99 (US$69.99/£54.99), while Aion’s standard edition will sell at an anticipated price of €49.99 (US$49.99/£34.99). Both retail packages include 30 days of game time. After 30 days, a monthly subscription fee of €12.99 (US$14.99/£8.99) for the game service will apply. Other pricing options will also be available. Pre-order purchases, available at retail stores June 9th, can be applied to the Limited Collector’s Edition or the standard edition of Aion. Be sure to know that details about pre-order benefits and subscription pricing options for Aion will be announced at a later date.

I played the Chinese Beta and absolutely loved the game. I fell in love officially with it when I completed the Ascension quest at lv10 when you first get your wings and specialize in your class. The game is just so beautiful.

I read up on it and even with three realms, there are only 8 possible classes. Does that mean it will be like WoW in that all realms can assume the same freaking classes? If so, I will have absolutely no interest in playing it.

Yes, Asmodians had the same classes the Elyos did. At level 10 when you complete the Ascension quest, you get your wings AND specialize in your class. I was a lv10 Scout and specialized later as an Assassin. My other option was Ranger. Its a well made MMO and can't wait for it to be released. I'll be playing on European servers since they're the least laggy/closest to me.

I'll be playing this with some former guildies. N. American servers though, of course.

I just want to say that the Aion soundtrack is A+.

South Korea never fails at gaming music.

It's just a shame most of their MMOs suck. I'm hearing good things about this one though, I may give it a try.

agreed, i personally didn't like WoW but Aion is shaping up nicely.

Pretty sure i'm going with a Spiritmaster, despite the pet issues.

It was between this and Champions Online for me. I heard that after the lower levels that this game becomes a grind. That could not be the case though, I'll just wait for some reviews, but it's a South Korean developer. But what made me choose Champions is because I just wanted something a bit more modern in my MMO. Getting a little tired of the fantasy thing.

Okay, I'm really enjoying this game and I'm not sure why because I normally hate these kind've 'click and wait' MMOs (WoW, Lineage, etc.)
