Update 5.0: Lost Memories

All about the backstory and the new areas

In just a few weeks Update 5.0 will be released on European servers. But what is it actually all about? What can you expect to see? And who are these ominous High Daevas? Get the answers to all your questions in this article.

Story

Once upon a time, a war broke out between the humans and the Balaur. Aion created Daevas - including the powerful High Daevas - and sent them, along with the empyrean lords, to save mankind.

Lord Israphel lured the Balaur into a trap, under the false premise of peace negotiations. To allow them to enter, the protective aetheric field surrounding the Tower of Eternity was deactivated. However, Lord Fregion saw through his evil plan. In his rage he destroyed Aion's Tower and broke Atreia into pieces. In the last second, the High Daevas managed to reactivate the aetheric field and stop the full destruction of the planet. However, the once glorious warriors were at the end of their strengths, it seemed like they were doomed. Luckily, Lady Siel managed to stop time within the aetheric field, thereby managing to save the High Daevas.

Many years have passed since then. The aetheric field is becoming ever weaker and has revealed the areas Nosra and Esterra, who were long thought to be lost.

Nosra and Esterra

Update 5.0 leads you into areas that were once protected by the aetheric field: Nosra and Esterra. Travel to your former home and go on the hunt for your lost memories, so you can level up to a High Daeva.

Everything you need to know:

  • Nosra is the sovereign territory of the Asmodians, Esterra belongs to the Elyos.
  • Both areas can be entered from level 65. Numerous quests and fear-inducing opponents await you there.
  • These areas grant you access to the Tower of Eternity, which was destroyed during the Great Catastrophe, as well as to four new instances (more information about the instances will follow in a separate news bulletin).
  • Discover new dynamic features. For instance, you can hide in clouds or fly through a Geyser to receive a buff.
