Dredgion + Outrange

Hello everyone,


Today's update brings a new PvPvE mode to the server: Dredgion! Not Aion has decided to go a bit classic and revamped this well-known instance into something that fits the server. In many ways, it works pretty much like the classic Dredgion - but with a Not Aion twist!

Dredgion rewards Might and GP (up to a daily cap of 200) based on your team's final score.

Entries to Dredgion will work similar to 6v6 and be available with the following schedule (EU server time is Central European, US server time is Chicago time):

  • Monday: 17-18 and 19-20
  • Wednesday: 17-18 and 19-20
  • Friday: 17-18 and 19-20
  • Saturday: 15-16 and 19-20
  • Sunday: 15-16 and 19-20

Outrange is now enabled on Not Aion meaning that certain spells are now able to land even if the target runs out of range during the spell cast. This primarily applies to some CC spells, but also other spells such as Call Lightning. If you're unsure if a skill can be outranged, please don't hesitate to ask here (with the exact skill name).

And that's it!


Regards,
Harboe

It shouldn't take you too much thinking to figure out this change of direction. After all, my opinion has always been the deciding factor on things here.

It doesn't appear to have any outrange. If it works differently here than on retail, speak up :)

That's what "outrange" refers to. But you can't start the cast outside of the actual spell range.

It's a retail feature that has been requested by a vast majority of players since Not Aion's launch to be honest with you.

yes. and what if most of sms ask to remove the possibility to glide fear? ofc ppl will ask something that boosts them but doesnt make it fair:| for example now sm can just root and fear shier when opponents has no skill for remove root/slow also in bg clers wont be able to outrange ccs. sorc can just cast sleep at 24m and cover easy. bard same. it just removes skill from ranged classes and makes their gameplay more retarded.

You're mistaking a "majority of players" (of which only a fraction play SM) with a "majority of SM's".

Why do you think that outrange didn't exist on Not Aion until now? Because I completely agree with you. But my personal opinion is irrelevant in this matter.
