Just thought I'd let SP know that Aion NA and EU have gone free to play, both with similar cash models but no IP bans for any country.
main difference between the two is Aion NA makes their profit by offering aesthetic,exp boosting (not really important in Aion),Pets and small bonuses in their cash shop whilst EU limits you to a sort of trial version of gameplay offering you to buy a gold pack via in game cash or real life money to unlock the game as it should be.
If anyone wants to Join Aion N.A I have one free pet code left (Gives you at random either a phoenix or zombie wolf/sabretooth)
a few things to mention. the game weighs 18 or so GB.
aion n.a has the 3.0 update which introduces 1.better graphics,2.mounts,3.housing,4. new skills,dungeons,instances.
