With the 3.0 patch to Aion, players can own housing in one of the residential areas of Oriel and Pernon, or in Beluslan, Gelkmaros for Asmodians or Heiron and Inggison for Elyos.

Getting to Your Housing Edit

A new skill, 22px Homeward Bound, allows players to return to their house. The skillbook for this skill is obtained as a reward for the new level 21 Studio acquisition quest.

There are five levels of housing: Studio, House, Estate, Mansion, and Palace.

Acquisition Edit

Free Studios are available to all characters starting at level 21, by doing a series of quests. Starting quests are available from Hariton (the Pernon Teleporter) for Asmodians and <> (the Oriel Teleporter) for Elyos. Ending quests are Tango quest icon Be It Ever So Humble [?] Asmodian Logo small Asmodian and Tango quest icon And A Home for Every Daeva [?] Elyos Logo small Elyos. The resale price for a studio is 4,000,000 Kinah.

Palaces, Estates, Mansions, and Houses are available via auction. Each house type in each region has a minimum level requirement for players to bid in the auction. Characters who do not meet the requirements cannot participate in the auction.

Auction Edit

Houses can be listed for auction from 00:00 Monday to 24:00 Friday through the Real Estate Auctioneer, Butler, or a signpost. Signs will indicate whether or not a house is for sale. Bidding takes place from 12:00am Monday to 12:00pm Sunday. When the auction closes on Sunday at noon (12:00) auction, if a bid is placed when there are 5 minutes or less remaining, the auction will be extended, up to a maximum of 30 minutes.

At the end of the auction, the character with the highest bid will receive the house. A character cannot bid on more than 2 houses at the same time, and may only use one house at a time. If a house is owned when winning a new house from the auction, a 2-week grace period begins, during which time the new house cannot be used. If the character sells the existing house to another character the new house may immediately be used.

At the end of two weeks, if the existing house is not sold, ownership of that house is revoked, and the house is automatically listed for auction again. Some of the old house's cost will be refunded, and the new house may now be used. If a character sells all of his/her houses at auction and no longer owns any housing, they can receive a Studio from the Studio NPC again - either Sarrik (Asmodian) or Parrine (Elyos).

Maintenance Fees Edit

Houses are subject to a weekly maintenance fee. If the maintenance fee is not paid, 1st and 2nd warnings are given. If the house maintenance fee is not paid over 2 weeks, ownership is revoked and the house is listed for auction. 90% of the house's cost is refunded to the owner.
