Santa Shugo’s On His Way With Goodies …. nyerk!

Yes, kids… there is a Santa Shugo!  And he’s due to arrive soon… in the next few days.  According to Community Manager, Tamat: “I can’t give an exact date but unless Santa Shugo turns into a flesh eating zombie and destroys the world, you should see this in-game near the end of next week! :)”  Gosh!  A flesh-eating Shugo?! That would be cool for next Halloween!  Ok, ok… back to Solorius.  It was announced on Saturday (Ya, I know I’m late with this post.) and I got a giddy about an in-game event. (No, not like that Halloween candy bit we got in October.) This festival is a real event with trees and presents and shugos and something that looks like an evil Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.  Hee hee! (Check out the official announcement & same previews:

By the way, doesn’t Santa Shugo look sporty in his monocle?  So what will we be dreaming of in the meantime till Solorious kicks off?

  • A GIANT PIANO! Yes, the kind you can jump on and make noise…. or a cacophony.  Whatever floats your boat!
  • Bakers selling holiday goodies.  You know like Nana Shugo used to make when she letyou lick the spoon.
  • Friendly Festive Shugo Peddlers with holiday loot for sale.

So warm up your kinah because Shugos don’t take plastic and get in on the first in-game holiday for Aion!  Happy Solorious Everyone!


Revel Without a Cause :: Aion’s First In-Game Holiday Event

HalloweenRevelZoomStarting October 25th, Aion will celebrate Harvest Revel, its first in-game holiday event!  Harvest Revel ends on Halloween (Oct 31).  And we all know that you don’t need a reason to party!  One thing I did enjoy inWoW were the holidays.  It gave me something else to do besides raid, and there were always surprises and goodies.  Ok, some issues with Dark Iron Dwarves one year (gosh, I hope that’s what they called) interrupting BrewFest.  But I digress… this is about the Aion Halloween Event. 

What’s unique and creative about this event is how different it will be for the two races in the game.  Because of the eclipse, the Asmodians will revel in the dark celebrating with an epic hunt led by the Wild Kurthanir hunt leader.  And since hunting can take alot out of a Daeva, there will be lots of traditional dishes to cook and eat!  While the Asomodians are hunting and eating, the Elyos will have their own set of consequences.  They will be invaded by the walking dead.  Villages in Elysea will be overcome by these creatures from the grave, and Dark Knight bands will form to chase them back underground!  (Sounds like Zombieland)  Aion promises new lore and “tasty treats” every day. Happy Hunting!  (Read more from the Offical Aion Announcement:
