After having been an MMORPG fan for a long time, not to mention since the days of Ultima Online, trusting my instincts have always been the way to go. Over the years, the complexities of online games develops with the new features, gameplay or skill list to keep fans excited with every new release. Any experienced MMO gamer would probably give you the same answer in regards to the development on MMORPGs to date.
Aion. Now here's where all the new developments have really got to me. If I had time to slowly discover all the game features and how to perfectly handle every game aspect, that would be one thing. The fact that you see more and more hard core gamers appearing out of thin air makes time a real competition when talking about getting to the top.
Having played the beta since early on, Aion is definitely one game that calls for more than a gamer's instinct. Although the game comes with features that make playing much easier, for instance we're able to locate where quest and NPCs are directly on the map, the more complicated parts still baffled me. There was aerial combat and then the stigma system, lastly not to mention constant PvP and PvE.
Obviously I needed a guide to get my Assassin rolling. I was looking into forums, community sites, video and everywhere else I can think of. There were Aion guides alright but little to no Assassin guides. You can imagine how happy I was when I applied as a test reader with KillerGuides and got to preview an early version of their Aion Assassin guide. I can share everything that amazed me about the guide here but that would simply be a repetition of the detailed Assassin guide description they already have up on their site.
They also have other Aion Classes Guides I didn't get a chance to view as a test reader but looks absolutely promising too.
