At long last, we guide the Elyos to level 55 in Aion's September 7 free expansion, Assault on Balaurea. You've likely slain many beasts to get this far, but you've faced nothing so fearsome as what awaits in the Abyssal Splinter. If you're clueless right now, maybe try the level 51-52 baby Elyos leveling guide first.
These guides were put together with the help of Aion's PowerWiki team: Jennifer “Gennwu” Randall, Scott “Hammer” Hannus, and Sean “Knite” Orlikowski. Read more of their awesome work at The Aion PowerWiki .
At this point, you're no noob to either Aion or this guide, so here's an overview of what we'll cover today. You'll unlock the last Greater Stigma slot in Beshmundir Temple, follow a quest chain for extendable weaponry, and defeat Yamennes of the Abyssal Splinter.
As always, Duddlinerk is here to cool the mustard, and Pinky has returned to freak-out around every corner.
Duddlinerk: Why must Daevas work so hard for just one Stigma Slot?!
Pinky: Patience, Duddlinerk! Stigmas are a Daeva's true source of power!
When you complete the repeatable quests in Beshmundir Temple the required number of times, you will open your last Greater Stigma Slot. Beshmundir Temple is located within Silentera Canyon, which cannot be entered unless the Elyos conquer all fortresses in the Inggison region. The completion of this takes a little bit of luck and a lot of effort.
Duddlinerk: No loot from Named Monsters, but can still acquire Fabled item?! Duddlinerk think deal like this almost too good to be true!
When you complete the repeatable quests within the Abyssal Splinter, Fabled Grade Shoes are rewarded. To start this quest, meet Craftsman NPC Laum in front of Teminon Fortress. Completion is fairly easy and involves killing monsters inside of the Abyssal Splinter. The only difficulty is that these quests are only available for completion when the Elyos have control of the Divine Fortress. To give you something to look forward to, here are the Fabled Armor Rewards available once you hit level 50:
At level 52, you can take two quests simultaneously from the list above, but you must complete the Rosarea's gaiters restoration quest to receive the breastplate quest.
Duddlinerk: Fabled items can easily be obtained if Daeva completes quests, nyerk! Duddlinerk is worried Shugo business may suffer from such good deals!
Intended for a Group, the Beshmundir Temple is located deep inside Silentera Canyon and is only accessible for those Daevas who are level 55. In the deepest reaches of the temple, a huge dragon, Stormwing (that used to be a rival of Tiamat), is imprisoned. There is also a Petralith Energy Source and related structures hidden within. Defeat the ultimate boss, Stormwing, for a chance at some amazing items!
To acquire a Fabled grade item, collect Decrees of Valor (given when the temple quests are completed) and exchange them at the designated NPC. Without a doubt, this is the place for those seeking fat loot.
Duddlinerk: Quest is too hard! Duddlinerk doesn't care about extendable weapons, nyerk! Doubts they would give such weapons to Shugo anyway!
Pinky: Stop whining like a shade cursed Asmodian! A strong will is a must if you want a good weapon!
The quest offers good EXP and a Fabled Weapon with good performance. Later, you can proceed with an upgrade quest (related to the weapon) to drastically improve the performance and make a lasting weapon. In case you're interested, here's the weapon upgrade path.
Step | Classification | Quest Name
Pinky: Join Fortress Battles to easily collect Platinum Medals.
When you join a Fortress Battle in Balaurea, you will receive Platinum Medals for your contributions and sacrifices. Fortress related quests also award Platinum Medals. In certain conditions, Agents from the opposing race will appear. When defeated, there is a good chance of getting Eternal grade weapons. Start winning fortress battles and move forward in occupying all fortresses in the region. Silentera Canyon becomes accessible when you conquer all Fortresses in Inggison and offers numerous benefits to those strong enough to make it there.
Duddlinerk Just a few more decrees and Daeva gets Fabled Helmet! So close, nyerk! How much do you have now, Daeva?
Pinky: I threw them away because I didn't know they could be exchanged. You should've told me earlier, Duddles!
A Decree of Valor is a reward for completing Beshmundir Temple quests in the Inggison region. These are a type of coupon that can be exchanged for Fabled items at a designated NPC. The selection isn't large, but the quality and performance of these items is supreme. A list of the Decree of Valor Quests follows:
Quest Name | Related NPC | Reward Item
Pinky: Platinum Medals as well as Eternal Weapons! The rewards are so awesome. Let's get a group together and go!
Duddlinerk: Duddlinerk wants Eternal Weapons. Daeva will get some Eternal Weapons for me? Nyerk!
Both Ancient and Abyssal Treasure Boxes will appear as you defeat Named Monsters within the Abyssal Splinter. These Treasure Boxes include a variety of Ancient Relics, such as Platinum Medals. There is also a chance to get Greater Fabled items from the Forgotten Abyssal Series. Upon defeating the final boss, Yamennes Painflare, a large Abyssal Treasure Box will appear, giving you a chance to obtain an Eternal Grade Weapon from the Yamennes Series. Still not pumped? Here's a list of loot types in the Abyssal Splinter:
You did it! Level 55. We're so proud of you. It's going to take the dungeons years to repopulate after all that leveling, and look at all the sweet loot you have to show for it. Just beware, I told the Asmodians to start ganking at level 55, so there may be a little more than usual trouble around the corner after this. There's one more guide set for tomorrow and it's all about Silentera Canyon, so stick around.
