As with any good expansion release, though, Aion must first undergo a 13-hour maintenance before the servers go live with the update.
That downtime comes for good reason. Awakened Legacy is making some sweeping changes to the game. There’s a new zone, and plenty of others that have been utterly destroyed by the dragon lord Ereshkigal. Dungeons have gone away with these zones, as well. Also, the max level is now 80.
The patch notes themselves are absolutely massive and contained within an equally massive PDF. So check that out if you want more info.
