I'm Gonna Aion - Part 2: The Sequel


The story so far!
- Leveled a Warrior (Gladiator) to level 11, leveling the lower levels were quite painful.
- Tried both Asmodean and Elyos. Disappointed with the Asmodean area design (if the faction doesn't sell itself to me in the start, then no thanks) so I'm going (staying) Elyos.
- Now leveling an Elyos mage, I'm 99.95% sure that he'll be my main.

WoW vs Aion, Aion vs WoW
WoW. I gotta mention WoW.

I logged on today to get my penguin pet. Then I logged out, I did not want to do anything else. The only thing I'll be doing this week is my weekly farm for the TF binding dropping from Garr.

Aion feels like a nice change. Not so fresh in terms of ideas, but it gives me the similar feeling I had on vanilla WoW.

Long leveling time to reach max level, lots of new things to see - and so far I like it!

WoW stopped giving me new things to experience and find out as soon as I dinged lv80. Getting and epic nowadays is like 'lol i got an epic' compared to what it was in Vanilla, 'zomgwtf.. not one, but TWO pieces of T1!'

I do not hate WoW, it just does not offer me anything at the moment except for potential rickrolling victims.

Character customization in Aion has a LOT more sliders compared to WoW. You can make really freaky characters with all body parts out of proportion, big muscle guys/girls and smaller than WoW-gnome sized minipeople.

If you wanna say hi, you can reach me on Zerogravity (Mage, will be sorcerer) or Skanna (Gladiator) on Kahrun-EU / Elyos. I'm not in a guild but exceptional offers will be taken into consideration!

Machinima!
I'll be recording this and that from my adventures in Aion. the end result should be 'Unlimited Escapism goes Aion'. I can tell so much that the video will be my first to be released in 1080p FullHD resolution.

As I move along in this new world, I'll be exploring all the possibilities of making machinima that even remotely makes sense. Currently it is like the very early days of WoW - if you wanna machinima, you need real people to help you and do the bodyacting.

There is currently no model viewer program at all. PROGRAMMERS AHOY! Anyone with skillz, can you check out if it would be possible?

p.s.

Is there any in-game way to take screenshots? (Currently I'm using Fraps to do that)

Just press the print-screen button on your keyboard. Also if you press Shift+F12 it will hide characters and only show their names unless the player is in your group. Finally to hide the UI 100% it's just F12 by itself. There are a lot of cutscenes at most major quests and such so the machinima IS possible, we just need to find you a public model viewer~

Spooner: I'm already working in on an Aion machinima - it'll be a mix of a music video + Unlimited Escapism!

I did smash PrintScr when I got the game, but it never told me where the screenshots went.

But the new patch (?) seemed to fix that and now it shows the path where the screenshots are saved into.

Also, I'm planning to make a small video tutorial on how to make in-game machinima in Aion (the tutorial will be released after I've completed the music video).
