Let me introduce myself. My name is Anthony Chabot and I’ve been playing this game for a long time – probably before you even knew it existed. I was one of the first to get into the Chinese client and was along for the ride during every single closed and open beta event that NCSoft ran.
During that time, I learned one very important thing – this game isn’t like other MMOs. It’s rougher, tougher, more ruthless with your time. You could spend hours and hours grinding your way up just one level.
So, instead of dragging my knuckles like a newbie, I started taking notes. I started recording videos and watching my gameplay carefully. I did it all with an eye for speed and riches and let me tell you what – you’re not going to believe the secrets I was unable to unlock.
Hours and hours of game play into Aion, I was blasting through levels like an old pro. I was bringing in MILLIONS of Kinah with my eyes closed and I wasn’t playing 20 hours a day to do it. When that Open Beta hit, I was Level 30 in 3 days flat. When the game hit the store shelves, I was at Level 50 days before my next competitor. Then I booted up an Elyos alt and did it all over again, just because I could.
Everyone has seen the other guides on the Internet promising to get you to level 50 in some ridiculous time like 4 days. It’s not going to happen. The game isn’t built like that.
