Fly through the aquatic wonderland of Aion’s Cygnea

    
18

Cygnea may roll off the tongue like an ugly medical condition, but in truth it’s a rather gorgeous zone that’s coming to Aion with June 17th’s Upheaval update.

The zone used to be at the bottom of the ocean but is now well above the waves and ready for the onslaught of player tourism. It boasts a heavy aquatic theme, of course, although there are elements of dragons peppered about as well. Because it’s an MMO and that’s sacred MMO law.

You can enjoy a non-stop flythrough of Cygnea after the break, so buckle up!

Great just before heavenward… I did really enjoy Aion but the last straw for me was missing out on the free Miragent armor by one month before the f2p conversion.  I intended to come back when the levels made my mistake irrelevant but never did.  I’ll have to take a look at it but I don’t know how much time it’ll get with FFXIV, Archeage, and likely B&S when it arrives.  Only have so much time and there’s no longer any guild to go back to there but man these areas are almost literally a painting in motion…

zyrusticae Thanks for that!  I had no idea the music in this game was so beautiful.  I may play it just for the soundtrack. :)

Man I love me some Aion, I still have not found a support class that I have enjoyed more so than chanter. If they would make Aion 2 with updated combat and some more PVE stuff it would be like my ultimate dream.

Does this game have a PVE server or is this one of those PVP centric games?

All I got out of it, to be honest, was from 27-32 seconds in:
Oyster to mothership, come in mothership!  Code pearl, repeat code pearl!  Beacon is active!

Ayries Aion’s soundtrack in general is pretty stellar. NCSoft spares no expense when it comes to their music. Most of their major tracks are fully orchestrated, too. 
Here’s one of my favorites: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38ACAg1XAv8

Noble_Einherjar The Abyss is pretty empty these days; I haven’t even come across a shard war in ages. Most people moved to the Eye of Tiamaranta as the ‘new’ Abyss, but that goes away with the Upheaval update. You can play totally PvP-free through L55. Jumping rifts is all but dead under L55 and most PvPers max out to L65 and fight in the newer L65 zones.

Denice J Cook You can only go to a PvE server until you’re 55. You have access to PvP from 20-65.
