Date: 02-28-2013 Views: () Comments: ()
Few days ago, we shared the blog of korean developers talking about the first two new instances for Aion 4.0 part 3. Today another 3 new instances will be introduced. As you Remember, Part 3 will add 5 new instances.
(Please remember that any names, mechanics and information are subject to change during the localization and normal update process.)
The third instance is Ophidan Bridge
Ophidan Bridge is a group instance that is set up as a sort of minigame in which time is of the essence as you work to destroy Beritra’s ultimate weapon – the Runic Siege Gun. It is essentially a sort of fortress siege in which players must destroy power generators in order to lower the bridge leading to the weapon.
In order to lower the bridge, the group must occupy all the key points which can be retaken by the Balaur. Therefore, a simultaneous attack and defense strategy will be essential to mastering this instance. Rewards will include not only unique gear but also treasure boxes with special material items, Ceramium medals, PVP coins, and so on.
The fourth instance is Danuar Shelter
A burial ground for the elite of the ancient Danuar race, this is a place where ancient secrets and treasures sleep. Before the Daevas arrive, Shugo grave robbers and Beritra’s forces are already there to loot the place. Players will need to navigate 3 paths into this labyrinth in order to beat them to it.
Players will need to split up and choose one of three entrances (A, B, or C) that each lead to a different starting point. Each path has different mobs with various fighting patterns, so careful distribution of the tasks and cooperation are both essential.
The A route is easy but requires speed while moving and killing mobs at the same time. This will be a path for the Daeva well versed in solo battle.
The B route requires players with solid teamwork skills as cannons and updrafts have to be used to escape the room.
The C route is for those who like moving and jumping challenges – falling will result in a return to the starting point.
Players are dispersed for the first part of the instance but are reunited in the final boss room. It sounds complicated but there is no time limit and the difficulty is relatively easy so everyone should take up the challenge. There will also be treasure boxes hidden throughout the sanctuary that should not be missed.
The fifth instance is Kamar Battlefield
This last instance is a 24 player battle set in Kamar. It is a 12v12 battle that pits enemy camps against each other and named monsters in order to earn points. At the end of the battle, the side with the highest point count is the winner.
This is basically an upgraded 12 person dredgion where teams are separated into two groups. It’s not just a battle between two forces, but a contest that requires speed and strategy in order to earn the most points. NPC’s and mobs with high point values spawn based on the elapsed time, so quick Daevas will have an edge. There are also vehicles, cannons, and supplies that provide skill items.
