Godstones were items that imbued weapons with secondary effects. Such effects could include bonus damage (generally good for PvE) or inflicting a special status on an enemy such as stun or paralyze (preferred in PvP). Godstone effects were applied by chance, with every skill the player used granting a small probability of triggering the godstone effect. The activation rate % varied per godstone.
The Godstone system was removed from the game with the Aion 6.0 update.
About Godstones Edit
Originally players had to talk to in Pandaemonium or in Sanctum to socket or replace a godstone. After Aion 4.7 players could just right-click the godstone they wished to socket and then click on the target weapon to imbue it. Alternatively players could select the weapon they wished to imbue with a godstone, and then socket it via the Godstone Socketing tab in the gear modification window. Once applied, the weapon would take on a glow to represent its newly added power.
Only one godstone could be used per weapon, and applying a godstone to a weapon that already had one equipped would destroy the existing godstone.
Illusion Godstones Edit
Instead of using regular godstones players could also opt to use an Ilusion Godstone. Added in Aion 4.X, Illusion Godstones provided better activation rates and effects compared to their regular counterparts, but had a small chance to be destroyed each time the effect was triggered. If this happened the player would receive a notification that the godstone had broken and would disappear within the next 10 minutes.
Godstones (or rather the pouches containing them) were relatively common rewards from events. Illusion Godstones could also be acquired from the Atreian Passport feature, completing the Crucible Spire, or by completing dailies for the Fortuneers (Elyos, Cygnea) or Charlirunerk's Daemons (Asmodians, Enshar) and trading in the awarded tokens for an illusion godstone pouch. Monsters in instances also had a chance to drop godstones, albeit at an abysmally low chance.
- Although the NPCs previously responsible for socketing godstones were replaced by their equipment purifier equivalents, they may still appear as a boss in the Crucible Challenge instance.
