NCsoft's Aion MMO has had its first fortress busted open and taken by the Origine legion, a group on the European server Suthran. The whole siege took just an hour 15 minutes.
Capturing the fortress gave the Origine legion access to a special dungeon, which they've already pilfered for loot. They used a level 25 raid to accomplish a level 35 objective.
"We used Sulfur fortress as training for our true target, Siel’s Western Fortress, which could be captured two hours later. Preparing ourselves for this challenge was a major effort to our players, but we’ve been amply rewarded with the pleasure we’ve had during the fight," said 'Gwarf', leader of the Centurion of Origine with Aion's community manager.
They also managed to capture another over the weekend, Siel’s Eastern Fortress. Now they just need to avoid landing themselves with a much less coveted award - 'First Legion to Have Lost a Fortress'. Better keep those defences up guys...
