Aion Races

There are two playable factions in Atreia, the Asmodians and the Elyos, inhabit the two halves of the shattered world, alongside thenonplayable faction, the Balaur, dragon-like beings. These factions battle to establish control over the world Atreia.

The Asmodians
The Asmodians are a brave, hardy, strong-willed people that are generous and fiercely loyal to their own, but fight ferociously against outsiders. They live in the upper half of Atreia, known as Asmodae. Their capital city is Pandaemonium.

The Balaur
The Balaur are mighty, highly intelligent beings, fixated on power and domination. Their aggression threatens the fragile world of Atreia. The Balaur homeland is Balaurea. The Elyos and the Asmodians are mounting a counterattack against the dragonlike Balaur and their allies.

The Elyos
The Elyos are a beautiful and radiant people, but have become arrogant. They see their beautiful forms and their lands as an entitlement from Aion. They occupy the lower half of Atreia, known as Elysea. Their capital city is Sanctum.


Aion Classes

Gladiators live and die by the sword. They are skilled in a variety of weapons, and can master a mixture of fighting techniques tailored to the characteristics of their weapons.

Core Statistics: Strength, Health, Agility

Templars act as guardians, defending while wielding a sword in one hand and a shield in the other. Templars can use chants and incantations to protect and heal themselves and allies, but they serve most often as frontline fighters.

Core Statistics: Strength, Health, Accuracy

Rangers are skilled archers. They can also use melee weapons, such as swords and daggers. They are adept at observing their surroundings and optimizing their tactics for terrain. Rangers can survive in the harshest of environments.

Core Statistics: Agility, Health, Accuracy

Assassins are experts in stealth and quick, brutal attacks. They are adept at hiding in the shadows, picking their targets carefully, and then crippling their opponents with little warning.

Core Statistics: Agility, Accuracy, Strength

Spiritmasters use the power of their elemental spirits to strike fear into the hearts of their enemies. They can summon powerful pets, each of which offer different offensive and tactical advantages to a battle.

Core Statistics: Knowledge, Health, Will

Sorcerers have mastered the elements of water, fire, air, earth, and their most powerful ally, Aether. A Sorcerer’s spell diversity and magical firepower have single-handedly turned the tide of countless battles.

Core Statistics: Knowledge, Health, Will

Clerics use the power of magic to strengthen their allies, heal their wounds, and resurrect them when they are defeated. Do not think Clerics are delicate, though. Their chain armor, mace, and shield allow them great durability.

Core Statistics: Will, Knowledge, Health

Chanters manifest their faith outward, infusing it into their allies. Though they can heal and use a staff in battle, their primary ability is to instill fierce discipline to strengthen allies and raise morale through their mantras.

Core Statistics: Strength, Will, Agility
