Kozen's Aion Leveling Guide

I was quite impressed with both the FTW Guides and KFGuides leveling guides, and still am because they are great at what they do, but in my opinion they just aren't as good a deal compared to Kozen's Aion Leveling & Mastery Guide. Please keep reading for my detailed analysis.

Firstly and most importantly, Kozen offers the best value for your dollar. In Kozen's bundle, you get: a 1-50 leveling guide for both factions (currently up to level 40), an Abyss guide, a crafting & gathering guide, an enchantments, manastone, & godstone guide, a flight guide, and finally a kinah guide. All this for cheaper than the competition!

1-50 Leveling Guides
Kozen's guide contains 1-50 guides for both the Elyos and Asmodian factions and they are almost of the same quality as both FTW Guides' and KFGuides' leveling guides. Each leveling guide contains tons of maps, screenshots, colour-coded instructions, and tips to maximize your efficiency. The only improvements I think he could make is to number-key the maps for quicker reference and add some helpful hyperlinks to web resources (e.g., Aion Armory).

Abyss Guide
This mini-guide teaches you everything you need to know about the Abyss PvP area. How do you get inside? What are faction strongholds? How is the zone laid out? What are Abyss Points and Ranks? What are Artifacts and where are they located? What about fortresses? The guide is full of detail, screenshots, and maps.

Crafting & Gathering Guide
This mini-guide contains a great overview of all the crafting professions in Aion, including who should take up what job, where you go to learn them, and an explanation of work orders and procc'ing. It also teaches you the basics of gathering, which is necessary to support your crafting profession.

Enchantments, Manastones & Godstones Guide
Enchantments, manastones, and godstones are an extremely important part of the game and this mini-guide teaches you pretty much everything you'll need to know to get yourself started. How will enchanting affect your gear? What manastones should you watch out for? How can godstones improves your weapons immensely?

Flight Guide
Learning how to fly in Aion can be difficult but it is an extremely important skill to master. This mini-guide teaches you everything you need to know about flying and gliding, including the controls and limitations. It also teaches you where to buy your new wings and how to equip them. Finally it highlights all the titles that will boost your aerial performance and tons of screenshots to show the progression of wings throughout the game for both the Elyos and Asmodians.

Kinah Guide
This last mini-guide is a very handy one to have. Let's face it, kinah (money) management is one of the toughest of Aion's systems to master but it is also the single-most important thing that will keep your character viable in the game. You need to know how to earn it and spend it most efficiently and this guide is a great tool to help you get started.

Extra Goodies
  • 60-day money back guarantee (no risk)
  • Free updates and new mini-guides as they are added (levels 40-50 coming soon)Member forums (a great place to chat and ask questions)
  • Member videos (plenty of excellent tutorials)
  • Clean and crisp guide and website design (easy to read and navigate)

I really can't stress what a good deal Kozen's Aion Leveling & Mastery Guide is. You get so much value compared to all the other guides out there that I think it's the most responsible way to spend your hard-earned money. Since this is my new top pick, I'm going to give it a 10/10. You won't be sorry you bought it -- I guarantee.
