    Come discover Aura Kingdom with these new updates!


    Far from being exhaustive or perfect, these patch notes are subject to change dependent on your feedback and comments on the forum.


    Hello Envoys of Gaia!


    Shrill screams fill the crisp fall air, those of fright and those of delight. We hope it will be more of the latter with the unveiling of yet more exciting new additions to Aura Kingdom.

    New Eidolon: Faust- Knight of Darkness

    Known Issues


    • The server time has changed due to new location of the servers. The PvP schedule etc. will be adjusted.
    • Starting the launcher for the first time after the virtualization causes a false "Maintenance" pop-up to appear. Restarting the launcher will solve this issue. If however you use Steam:
    • open AK's folder, open the file 'connect.ini' and change the IP to: 195.60.208.35 (Example: Server=195.60.208.35,6545)


    Finally, we thank you all for your patience during the long maintenance! Today's maintenance also replaces tomorrow's maintenance. The next weekly maintenance is scheduled for 7th December 2016.


    Cheers!
