  1. Hey there! I thought about writing this guide to help my fella clerics to follow the right path when picking gear, accessories, weapons and such, so here we go! In this guide I will show you how to gear up your cleric from scratch both PvE and PvP wise. ~ Support ~ PVE - Kahrun The very first gear you need to pick is Kahrun set, it's easy and quite fast to do. To purchase this set you will need Kahrun's Symbols, which are obtainable via Sarpan and Tiamaranta's dedicated weekly and daily quests. ~ Why Kahrun? As mentioned above, first of all because it's really easy and relatively fast to do. Second of all, you don't really need to run any dungeon that requires any kind of gear to achieve it, in fact you'll only need to do your daily Raksang runs plus weeklies and dailies for a couple of weeks, then you'll be even able to run Infinity Shard with it. Third of all, Kahrun is the only set that gives you an high amount of concentration, so that means your heals will most likely not get interrupted if you get hit by monsters. As accessories at the beginning everything you can get is okay, as starting ones I would suggest either Blood Marks or Vanquisher (you can obtain these as random boxes reward by exchanging Conqueror's Marks in certain garrisons in Katalm, they're even good for pvp due to their magic resistance and strike resistance value, but we'll talk about it later on) and then once you can run Infinity Shard (aka Katalamize) you'll preferably need to get Hyperion set. As sash you can either pick Sauro mythical sash, Exalted Katalium sash (note, this can be used in pve but it's mainly used for pvp purposes due to its high defensive stats but again, we'll talk about it further in the guide) or for extra concentration Tiamat Guard's Sash (I use this one with my Kahrun set since the amount of HPs I lose isn't that massive so it's nice to have some extra concentration by time to time). As helmet you essentially have two choices: Unstable Abyssal Chain Hood or Omega's Chain Hood. Both of these helmets grant a great amount of concentration (105 for Abyssal and 114 for Omega) and HPs (598 for Abyssal and 407 for Omega), so it's up to you based on your preference or what it's easier for you to obtain. You can get these helmets from Yamennes in Unstable Abyssal Splinter (Unstable Abyssal Chain Hood) and from Omega world boss in Inggison (Omega's Chain Hood). As weapon you need to pick something with cast speed, so to start I would go either Blood Mark or Sauren mace (which is the orange version of the Mythical one and grants you that sweet 12% cast speed), later on I would pick a Sauro mythical one or Hyperion for higher base stats. As shield you have three choices: Nishaka Scale Shield, Kradi Scale Shield or Level 60 Etenral Everage Equipment Healer Shield aka starter shield (which is the one you get at the very beginning of your journey from the equipment boxes, SO DON'T THROW IT AWAY!). The stats between the three shields are really similar, the only "big" differences are the number of manastone slots (in fact Nishaka and Kradi can be 6-slotted once you identifiy them) and the amount of concentration (113 for Nishaka and Kradi, 118 for the starter shield). I would recommend to just pick the starter one since it's free and has great stats anyways. At the end, your set should more or less look like this: http://aion.aspirine.su/#!oNMFyt PVE (but also PVP) - Hyperion Hyperion set is something you're slowly going to achieve once you'll be able to access to Infinity Shard (aka Katalamize), so let's say that this might be considered as an "endgame gear". ~ Why Hyperion set? Hyperion set can be both socketed as HP or Healing boost. I personally recommend to socket it full healing boost and keep Kahrun as main HP set, it can be really useful when mobs aren't focusing you or even better, it's really useful in group PvP when you have an over focused squishy target in your party and you're not getting hit by anybody. As accessories you need to gather full Hyperion set for extra healing boost, with either Sauro mythical or Exalted Katalium sash. In case you're using it during pvp as well, just keep your sauro / crafted accessories on. As helmet you need to get Lunatic Modor's Cleric Chain Hood since it's the only one who grants healing boost (we want to maximize our healing boost after all, don't we?). As weapon just go with the hyperion, for the set effect. As shield you need to get Infinity Shard's Scale Shield (you get it by obtaining 10 Hyperion Parts for a quest in Idian Depths). At the end, your final set should more or less look like this: http://aion.aspirine.su/#!isaLs1a PVP - Magic Resist Magic resistance set is one of the main cleric's pvp support gear and you'll need that to counter magic classes with low magical accuracy. To start, you need to complete your BM gear and socket it full magic resistance to avoid going around completely naked, even if (of course) it will never reach the same magic resist value you will achieve with AP gear. Protip: once you collected all of your AP parts do not discard your BM gear and change manastones for block set. ~ Which kind of AP gear should I pick for my Magic Resist set? Chanter AP 2-star gear (which is Seraph for Elyos and Shadowshift for Asmodians) + Cleric rank 1 AP gloves (Custodian's Divine for Elyos and Shepherd's Divine for Asmodians) since rank 1 AP gloves give casting speed, while both Cleric/Chanter AP 2-star gear grant attack speed. As accessories, if you can't run Infinity Shard yet, I would recommend taking Vanquisher ones, otherwise go for Hyperion accessories (full, so set + extra earring and ring), as sash either Sauro mythical or Exalted Katalium. As endgame gear accessories, for a matter of optimization and quality of life, I would strongly recommend crafting or purchasing Exalted Nolan accessories + Exalted Katalium Sash. Sauro accessories are also really good for magic resistance, but crafted are slightly better for highest possible magic resistance. As helmet, if you can't afford Sunayaka's Hairpin yet (which is the best in slot with a total of 181 magic resistance) you can either try to get Ksanat's Hairpin (which has 164 magic resistance and +2.1% pvp defence) or Yndigo's Hairpin (which has 164 magic resistance but no pvp def). As weapon, you can pick between Brazen Aegis mace(Rune Shield Tower / Illuminary Obelisk), Enraged Hyperion or Infinite Shard's eternal one (same as healing boost shield). As shield you could start with BM (which again, you can unsocket later on and re-socket with block manastones once you get a better one for magic resistance) or Orai's Shield (Arena 60 1 Conditioning) which is pretty good and also quite cheap. When you will have enough APs and Ceramiums, just get AP magical 2-star one (Resplendent Divine Protective Shield for Elyos and Eclipse Divine Protective Shield for Asmodians) At the end, your final set should more or less look like this: http://aion.aspirine.su/#!f6GAPKC Goal stats to reach with a decent / well optimzed magic resistance set: 2750+ / 2820+ PVP - Block / Strike Resistance Block set is the main set you will need to use to counter physical classes (besides assassins, assassins are horrible people and they will melt you no matter what, BM gear will eat all their paralyze godstones and cc's) during your pvp encounters ~ Which kind of gear should I pick for my Block set? Discordant (BM) gear is the best in slot available in this patch. You need to socket all of your normal manastone slots with Block +29 and almost all of your ancient manastone slots with Strike Resist +22 (I personally have weapon and one gear piece socketed full block to reach 3.9k block value and 680+ strike resist value with scroll). Note that block set is the only set you're forced to enchant to its maximum level (so +10 for the whole set, +15 or +13 for the shield), since upgrades grant strike resistance and block (from +10 and above) and the physical deffence from +1 onwards. Moreover, note that Strike Reristance value is capped to 700, so if you already reach around 620-630 strike resist without a Fine Strike Resist scroll (but with an idian on your weapon), just socket the rest of your gear with block manastones. ~ Why Strike Resistance? Block set can be easily countered by accuracy set, and this is where Strike Resistance comes to your help. Strike resistance is a value that doesn't let your opponents crit on you when they hit you, so even if you will no longer block their attacks, it will decrease their overall damage. As accessories, you need to get Discordant neutral accessories (so neither magical or physical ones) and when you will be able to craft them or buy them I suggest getting Exalted Nolan. A good alternative to crafted ones are Sauro mythic. As belt you need to drop Sauro mythical one, since it grants Block. As helmet, you need to get plate Ancient Coins (Remodeled Danuar Helm for templar). As weapon, you can pick between Brazen Aegis (Rune Shield Tower / Illuminary Obelisk), Enraged Hyperion or Infinite Shard's eternal one (same as healing boost shield). As shield, you can start with BM one (that has to be enchanted to +10) and then you will need to get physical AP 2-star one (Resplendent Divine Battle Shield for Elyos, Eclipse Divine Battle Shield for Asmodians) or physical AP rank 1 one (Custodian's Divine Battle Shield of Elyos, Shepherd's Divine Battle Shiels for Asmodians). What changes between these two shields is that AP star 2 has slightly more block, while AP rank 1 grants more Hps (around 400, to be precise). Remember that you'll have to enchant your block shield to its maximum level in order to obtain the highest amount of defensive stats out of it (so +15 for AP 2-star and +13 for AP rank 1). At the end, your final set should more or less look like this: http://aion.aspirine.su/#!mojVLml Goal stats to reach with a decent / well optimzed block set: 3800+ block, 600 strike resit / 3900+, 670 stirke resist PVP - Magic Suppression Magic suppression set will come to your help when you'll encounter magical classes with a high magical accuracy (that means classes with magical accuracy buffs or players with composite magical accuracy / magic boost set). ~ Which kind of gear should I pick for my Magic Suppression set? You have few options and they all work great. You can either go for Brazen Aegis one (which in all honesty is a pain to get because first of all mythical drop rate from Illuminary Obelisk is really low and moreover every piece needs to have perfect stats in order to have the maximum magic suppression value and this set has the lowest magic suppression stat among the three of them, so I don't recommend choosing this one), Idian Depths cloth one (pieces can be aquired from Idian Depths bosses, such as Serusia, Promion and Penemon) or Ancient Coin's bard version. I personally picked AC one because it's the easiest to achieve (but absolutely not the cheapest) and has PvP defence, so that compensates the minor Magic Suppression value compared to Idian Depths cloth one. You can choose which kind of manastones to socket in your normal slots: for ancient slots just get Magic Suppression +40, for normal slots you can either go for HP +100 / +95 or composites Magic boost 27 / HP 47 (pick the second option if you wish to play more aggressively while using this set). Note: if you decide to pick AC set you can use it as DPS pve set until you can't achieve full Hyperion DPS set (of course that requires a re-socket). As accessories, I would recommend Hyperion ones, but Exalted Nolan / Sauro work just fine. Same goes with belt. For a matter of quality of life, I would just keep Exalted Nolan / Sauro if you're switching set midfight. As helmet, I would recommend AC bard's or Bastion Headband. As weapon, you can pick between Brazen Aegis (Rune Shield Tower / Illuminary Obelisk), Enraged Hyperion or Infinite Shard's eternal one (same as healing boost shield). As shield, you need to get Brazen Aegis. At the end, your final set should more or less look like this: http://aion.aspirine.su/#!QrLhprw Goal stats to reach with a decent / well optimzed magic suppression set: 2700+ / 2850+ ~ DPS ~ PVE Incensed Hyperion set is the best one you can pick due to its bonus set. I would recommend to start with Ancient Coins set (that you can unsocket and resocket later on for magic suppression set) while gatheting all of your Hyperion pieces. As alternative, I would suggest picking Bastion cloth set with Lunatic Modor's Cane (two of them fusioned). Note that 2000 magical accuracy should be enough for every dungeon except Danuar Reliquary, for which I recommend you to have around 2100 - 2200 magical accuracy. This being said, once you can achieve an adequate magical accuracy value, just socket your set with the best magic boost stones you can afford. As accessories, pick BM magicals in case you don't have access to any instance that allows you to drop accessories. Once you can finally get into Infinity Shard, get full Hyperion Set (for bonus set mainly) + Exalted Katalium / Sauro ring and earring and Exalted Katalium / Sauro Sash (I would recommend trying to get Sauros for dps since they can have slightly higher crit spell and magic boost rolls). As helmet, you can pick Lunatic Modor chain one or Bastion cloth one (last one mainly for more MP and major crit spell). As weapon, you can start by taking an Ancient Coins Staff fused with a BM one, later on in case you're aming for Hyperion set, fuse your Hyperion staff with a Lunatic Modor Cane or Ancient Coin (put the DR / AC one under and not vice versa otherwise you will lose your set effect), otherwise just fuse two Lunatic Modor Canes (put the one with more stats and better enchanting level on top). At the end, your final set should more or less look like this: http://aion.aspirine.su/#!PDkuF5c PVP For PvP you will need Cleric AP 2-star full set (Resplendent for Elyos, Eclipse for Asmodians), socketed full composites Magic Boost 27 / HP 47 (even if I would personally socket two pieces with Magic Boost 27 / Magical Accuracy 7 to avoid resisting everything who comes in your way, besides magic resist users). As accessories, pick BM magical ones first, then change them for AP magical later (Custodian's Magic accessories for Elyos, Sheperd's Magic accessories for Asmodians). As helmet, I personally use Lunatic Modor Chain one, but you can also pick magical BM and then change it for AP magical for more PvP stats. As weapon, you can start with Ancient Coin one fusioned with BM and then, since NCsoft hates us, the only one you can pick is Lunatic Modor Cane, since all the other staffs are chanter only. You will need to fusion it with AP 2-star (Resplendent Shakujo for Elyos, Eclipse Shakujo for Asmodians). At the end, your final set should more or less look like this: http://aion.aspirine.su/#!0X9kRB4 ~ IDIANS ~ All of your weapons will need different different idians, so this is a small list with the most requested and the best bonuses available from certain idians. Please note that the following aren't 100%, you can obtain them on a certain percentage, so you might need to use more than one idian to obtain the stats you seek for. Magic Resistance +50 Glossy Esoteric Idian: Resistance Inspiring Idian: Resistance Triumphal Idian: Physical Defense Triumphal Idian: Magical Defense Triumphal Idian: Resist Magic Suppression +85 Glossy Esoteric Idian: Magical Defense Triumphal Idian: Magical Defense Triumphal Idian: Defense Ice Idian: Magical Defense Strike Resistance +50 Glossy Esoteric Idian: Resistance Inspiring Idian: Resistance Triumphal Idian: Resist Healing Boost +30 Glossy Esoteric Idian: Assistance Inspiring Idian: Assistance Triumphal Idian: Support Magic Boost +70 Glossy Esoteric Idian: Magical Attack Glossy Esoteric Idian: Physical/Magical Attack Glossy Esoteric Idian: Physical/Magical Attack Triumphal Idian: Attack For PvP aggressive stats just get General Idians (aka Golden Idian Booster: Magical Attack) And that's it! I really hope that you guys found my guide helpful! For any question / suggestion hit me on Discord at Chastise#4964 Big thank you to Capa for helping me with this guide! See you in game!
  2. 4.6 Cleric Gearing Guide (PvE/PvP)

    http://aion.aspirine.su/#!mojVLml Corrected version, I can't edit the main guide anymore unfortunately
  3. 4.6 Cleric Gearing Guide (PvE/PvP)

    I'm sorry but the one you linked is the same one I posted on my guide, could you re-do the aspirine and post it again please?
  4. 4.6 Cleric Gearing Guide (PvE/PvP)

    I mean considering that we already have 3800/3900 block that's more than enough.. I personally think that strike resistance idian might be better just to reach that juicy 700 cap
  5. 4.6 Cleric Gearing Guide (PvE/PvP)

    That's a really good information, I didn't know about it, thank you!
  6. 4.6 Cleric Gearing Guide (PvE/PvP)

    SInce for some reason it didn't paste correctly from my document, I'd like to add to this sentence that you can fuse your Hyperion staff with a Lunatic Modor Cane or Ancient Coin (put the DR / AC one under and not vice versa otherwise you will lose your set effect), otherwise just fuse two Lunatic Modor Canes (put the one with more stats and better enchanting level on top).
  7. 4.6 Cleric Gearing Guide (PvE/PvP)

    Thank you for your feedback! As I mentioned in my guide it's just a matter of not going around completely naked, you can have your BM mres gear at first and slowly change your pieces with AP ones while re-socketing your BM gear for block, if you just socket it with block manastones from the beginning you might have hard times against magical classes. The best way to do it in my opinion is to upgrade your gear to +10 for extra strike resistance and socket it magic resist (since getting AP gear as ely is a pain nowdays) and then, when you manage to slowly get your AP pieces just resocket BM for block since manastones are quite cheap (and you will already have a decent amount of strike resistance to start with since you enchanted it beforehand). Shield wise, I've done some maths and despite being easier to enchant and giving +400 HPs more, it should give less block cause in fact, it just stops at +13.
  8. Hey Guys! Since many people (mainly healers) struggle with gear switching macros in this patch, I thought about doing a mini-guide to show you how to do them with Razer Synapse to make your life a little easier (and to not risk ending up naked while switching your gears if you get hit). 1) The very first thing you have to do is to select a quickbar and drag your gear pieces in the skill bar as shown in the screenshot down below. Please make sure to use keybinds that DO NOT require shift+, alt+, ctrl+ and similar (so only number and alphabetical keybinds) 2) After that, you need to go in options, select the Key Mapping section and then go to quickbars. First you need to choose a keybind that you're going to use to switch back to your main skillbar (in my case it will be *), then you need to chose a keybind that will switch you to the quickbar you previously chose for your gear macro (in my case the quickbar number 5 will be binded to the number 7 of my mouse) 3) Once everything is setted in your client options, you will need to go on Razer Synapse, select the "Macro" option, make a new macro and set no delay from the specific window as shown down below 4) After that, you need to start recording your macro: first you need to hit the gear quickbar keybind, then all the keys from the quickbar in which you dragged your gear pieces in, and last but not least the keybind you setted to switch back to your main skills quickbar. Note that even if Synapse will show you the keybinds "twice" it just indicates when the button is pressed and released, so if your macro will look like as the pictures posted below you're doing everything correctly 5) When the macro is done you need to bind it to the same mouse / keyboard button you used to bind your gear quickbar on your aion client, as shown down below And you're done! I hope that my guide has been helpful to those who didn't know how to set this, if you have any kind of question feel free to leave a comment down below or hit me on discord at Chastise#4964 See you in game, folks!
  9. [Event] Boiling Point!

    Out all of the dungeons mentioned above, which ones are supposed to drop at level 65 (besides the ones that are already level 65 such as katalamize, sauro etc)?
  10. [Event] Balaur's Treasures

    The event sounds nice but I don't really understand the reason why you guys decided to make it last only from 11AM to 8PM server time. Considering that most of the people work during that time and a part of our community isn't located in europe (for example the ones from south america, russia or asia) they won't be able to enjoy the event in the same way they'd wish to. I get that maybe you did that in order to gather most of the players in a certain time lapse to make the event more "alive", but I don't know how many people will be able to participate with this schedule. Maybe next time it would be cool to make it last at least 12 hours (like from 12PM to 12AM) or to let the community vote for a possible schedule in case you decide to do another time-based event.
  11. Hairstyles

    I highly oubt that they will be able to add Weda hair into the shop since they're 5.x content in which the client has been reworked with a diffrent engine to make the grafic look better, it would be cool tho
  12. I'm sorry but, how would that help?
  13. Hey there, What I wanted to share with you is a suggestion regarding "The Eternal Bastion" instance. As it's well known, in this patch it is necessary to conquer the Icetorn Frontier Post (aka Garrison number 81 for my european fellas) in order to unlock the access to the dungeon. Now, I understand that that's how it works and that's how the patch is, but I think we can all agree that it can be frustrating when, for example, someone of your premade is late and you can't replace that person, and while you stand still waiting at the garrison the opposite faction conquers it, blocking you the access to the dungeon. To solve this issue I've thought of some solutions that might be helpful for both sides: 1) Reduce war captain spawning time: In this way, the garrison will be conquered more often by both factions and people can get in without waiting ages for the war captain to spawn. 2) Make the war captain elite or ultimate: In this way, it would be harder to kill it (since right now it's just a normal NPC, as consequence it gets melted really eaisly) and the faction who has the garrison can try to fight to keep it. 3) Create a separate entrance in the main faction's city: in this way, everyone can enter whenever they want without waiting for ages for the garrison to be conquered by their own faction. If you don't want to "influence" the pvp activity that this option would cause, you could put the entrance somewhere in Danaria, people might still do pvp in front of it, but it would not be as frustrating as it is right now. Let me know what you think about it, thank you!
  14. [event] Return to Tiamaranta's Eye!

    uhm, I'm sorry? I popped out suggestions to make the SWB alliances management less time consuming, not to completely kill pvp in front of SWB garrison, so no, your comment towards me is pretty pointless
  15. [event] Return to Tiamaranta's Eye!

    > People complain about the lack of pvp events > Staff makes a pvp event > People complain asking for the pvp event rewards to be available in pve too ??????????
  16. Well, if my alliance is slow when it comes to regroping and the garrison get taken while waiting the last one, we won't need to wait 30-40 minutes for the war captain to spawn again, so it would be better in my honest opinion. My idea was not to kill Danaria's pvp, but to give people a chance to either fight for the garrison by changing the war captain NPC type (because I'm sorry but it's bs to have a normal npc as war captain for that garrison) or to shorten waiting times in order to make it less "heavy" in case the garrison is lost
  17. why not? better than having a normal npc that gets 2 shotted..
  18. Gear Suggestion

    Please no, leveling up is already a pain, I have vietnam flashbacks only by thinking about leveling up with coins gear again
  19. [Event] Cocktail Party!

    they will probably get them with new events within the next months, not a big deal, aion has always been like this, if you skip an event you don't get to achieve those items or you'll eventually achieve them with the next ones, nothing unfair about it
