I’ve had two people from my legion ask me this week about making Pepento Juice. To those of you not familiar with this food, it’s a drink that became available with the 4.0 patch. I have the recipe and when I relay the ingredients to anyone inquiring, most then immediately say “Never mind, I’ll go back to Drupa Cocktails” or some similar drink buff.
I don’t blame them honestly. The ingredients for the 4.0 cooking recipes are down right ridiculous. I mean, look at this:
But, but, BUT! I am quick to tell anyone and wanted to post this on here to remind y’all that there is an equivalent item for a recipe that became available back in patch 1.9: Kuvano Juice.
The recipe is the exact same for both factions, and is acquired from the Ordnance Quartermaster in Ingisson/Gelkmaros. All three ingredients are found in Taloc’s Hollow. The Kuvano is gathered, the Poisoned Taloc Leaf is a drop, and the Kuvano Oil can be purchased from an NPC inside the instance named Dorkin.
Granted, you may be able to buy these items off the broker if someone else has obtained them. Otherwise, you will need to run the instance. Note: most mobs in this instance are levels 51 and 52. I buy the leaves off the broker and go in the instance to gather the Kuvano and buy Kuvano Oil when necessary.
The Kuvano nodes are found in the following locations:

Each run nets me 10 Kuvano. I have 3 toons that are high enough to run this instance and gather the items; if done daily, I could get 210 Kuvano per week. :)
To get to Dorkin to buy Kuvano Oil, kill the named mob Neith to get Dorkin’s Pocket Knife.
Then go to the locked door hidden behind the waterfall to enter Dorkin’s Nook:
So there ya go, an alternative to a 4.0 drink buff that’s easier to get/make. ^_^

Sorry I haven’t been posting much, new job is keeping me uber busy but hopefully having some more free time coming up soon to post a few things I’ve been working on!
Have any of y’all seen the post on Daeva’s Report today about the Hall of Fame coming in the 4.5 update?
Go. Look. NOW!
Seriously. I’m sitting here at my desk squeeing like a fangirl and getting ALL KINDS of weird looks from my neighboring cubemates! XD
See what I mean!?!?!?

If you don’t know, Coulrophobia is the fear of clowns. :)
It seems the creepy circus has rolled into town, Daevas! I saw in a lunchtime tweet from NCsoft about the new event: Nightmare Circus.
I haven’t had a chance to read over the whole event page yet, but will do so tonight. I urge you to do the same! :)

It’s that time of year again! Today’s maintenance marks the first day of Aion’s Harvest Revel. Posted to the Aion site was an announcement of a pumpkin carving contest:
While the Harvest Revel spirit hasn’t arrived in Ateria yet, we’re getting the spooky spirit started with our first ever pumpkin carving contest! The top three winning entries we choose will each receive (1) permanent not yet available pet, a Harvest Saam!
- How to Participate -
- Carve one pumpkin with an Aion theme. It can be anything related to Aion and please keep it appropriate.
- Take a picture of your carving with a hand-written or computer-generated note wishing Aion a “Happy Harvest Revel!” along with your character name and server.
- Email your submission to aion_community[at]ncsoft.com with the email subject “Aion Harvest Revel Pumpkin Carving.” In the email body, please include your character name and server.
- The picture must not be edited or altered in any way and any submissions deemed plagiarized will be disqualified from the event.
The three carvings that show the most creativity, originality, or that best represent Aion will win (1) Harvest Saam pet. The Harvest Saam pet has 30-storage slots and will alert its owner of nearby enemies.
Event ends on October 31, 2013. Please click here for full contest rules.
I haven’t carved a pumpkin since my Minion was little, but this contest tempts me with several ideas. Anyone else going to participate? ^_^

The past couple of months I have been having internet issues preventing me from really playing my toons. Basically, every 3-5 minutes I would have about a minute or minute and a half where my lag would spike up to about 1100 or 1200 ms. This made PVPing impossible, along with pretty much anything else that required active participation.
I’ve been a very sad panda. :(
I’ve gone back and forth between NCsoft support and my ISP. Both claimed the issue could only be addressed by the other. To NCsoft’s credit, their support was able to help me pinpoint where the issue was occurring — basically, I’m experiencing nearly complete packet loss on a couple IP addresses between my ISP and the Aion server. However, from that point, no one wanted to claim responsibility, so I was stuck.
Several people have told me that I should just “wait it out” to see if the issue corrects itself. Given me being busy with the new job and other things going on, I’ve just been biding my time, leveling up my bard since I could solo everything on her. She’s now got 4/5 on the Forgotten Siel’s set and 3/5 on her Kahrun set. She’ll ding 59 likely tonight, and that’s without me really trying to level her. She still has all her campaigns left, so once I finish those sets, I’ll do her campaigns, then do the Gelk 4mil coin repeats and bloodmarks from 60-65.
I decided to bite the bullet and switch my ISP this week. I’m not happy with it, because I’ll be paying the same amount of money for less speed. BUT! I’m looking forward to being back on my main and PVPing again.
Anyways! I’m in a new legion and plan to be playing as much as possible as soon as the internet is fixed. So hooray for that!

I just got home a few minutes ago to find that today’s maintenance took much longer than was expected, but am presented with the pleasant surprise of another event! Per the Aion news page:

Yarrrrrr, ahoy Daevas! My apologies for my absence, I have started a new job and haven’t had much time for playing nor posting. I hope everyone is getting nice goodies from the Alchemy Event that is currently going on! If you haven’t heard already, the event will be ending with this Wednesday’s maintenance. Continuing the 4 year anniversary festivities, we will be celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day Thursday with the GMs. The pirate skins will be on sale in the online shop after maintenance Wednesday.
I am SO tempted to get Harley one!
The Daeva’s Day Event is supposed to pick up this Wednesday where the Alchemy Event left off.
We’re still waiting on details for that one. I can’t wait to see what new goodies we get. ^_^ EDIT: Details on the event can be found here. More on the anniversary event can be found here.
