Aion Update Video

A new Aion "Vision Trailer" on the YouTube shows off a number of changes planned for NCsoft's MMORPG, including revamped visuals, swimming, underwater cities, mounts, new skills, and more. Thanks Steve O.

And just think, in order to access all this new content all you need to do is repetitively kill tens of thousands of bland NPCs.

I chucked the game at level 22 when my quest log was empty of anything other than "repeatable" quests, and math told me I needed over 500 kills merely to advance to 23, where there was perhaps two more quests waiting for me before I return to the same repeatable quests, now worth even LESS xp than before.

The game is not overrun with bots because of "gold" farmers. Its overrun by bots being operated by regular players that want to progress but are bored to tears of the grind. Even the most hardcore guilds have adopted an open acceptance of bot grinding in this one.

Shame. Aion appears to have a lot going for it. But its simply not accessible to the average gamer.
