When we checked out the voting result and player comments relating to Recommended MMOs in November，it's crystal clear that Aion and WoW are becoming the focus of MMO players' discussions, due to the upcoming of Aion's OBT and the recent release of Wotlk. Some players said they hope Aion or some other MMO will pose a challenge to WoW's throne, "If a game comes out that poses a serious future threat, maybe the developers will get their heads out of their nether regions and start innovating some."
Aion vs WoW
Scenery in Aion is seductive and depicted to a nicety, and it's eastern style. We can easily find the decided difference of water effect between Aion and WoW. Putting aside your system, Aion is more beautiful than WoW, but WoW is still a cost-effective MMO. The graphics of Aion actually look nice, but it should first make promises with its quest system, class and gameplay balance.
It is said that "WoW + wings = Aion". Everyone is trying to imitate WoW in seeking success, but Aion also owns lots of unique things you may not notice. Here are some differences between Aion and WoW. You can explore the Aion world personally when its OBT starts. Plus, don't forget to tell us your discovery.
1.Characters in Aion can fly, cause' they get wings. Are you interested to see how aerial combat breaks out in an MMO, especially for melee/special classes. Is the assassin going to have to chase someone in 3D just to hit them? Are the spiritualist's pets all going to fly with him'her? A system like this would seem to favor ranged combatants unless there's some kind of lockon feature or speed advantage for melee classes.
2.There's no Mount System in Aion but a Transformation System.
3. PvP system in Aion is larger than WoW, Aereschuranta.
The Abyss(Aion's PVPVE area) is divided into three layers: Top, centre, and bottom. There are five fortresses and eight artifacts in the top layer, one fortress and seven artifacts in the centre, three fortresses and seven artifacts in the bottom layer with two strategic points.
