Levinshor (KR/EU: Akaron), also known as the Gateway to Balaurea, was an optional map for level 65 players that was introduced in the 4.7 update. The map derived its nickname from the numerous portals it contains to other regions of Balaurea, such as Inggison, Gelkmaros, Reshanta and the Idian Depths.

On this map players could capture mini-outposts known as bases to unlock weekly quests that awarded Blood Mark <Blood Mark>s. Capturing the base in the middle of the map had also become an important source for Greater Supplements (Mythic) <Greater Supplements (Mythic)> between 5.0 and 5.8.

In Aion 6.0 this map was destroyed by Ereshkigal's attack, and was thus removed from the game.

Accessing Levinshor Edit

  • Via the Teleporter in Cygnea or Iluma (Elyos).
  • Via the Teleporter in Enshar or Norsvold (Asmodians).
  • Via a portal in the new Upper Abyss Landing (spawns in the base upon reaching level 4 Landing Reinforcement).

Lay of the Land Edit


Levinshor.7 Soundtrack - Tidewash Cove

The beautiful, lush lands of Levinshor are littered with mountain ranges and other rugged landscape, but managed to retain its visually appealing status and boasts an outstanding soundtrack, making it an instant favorite of many players upon its release. Elyos characters start at the Lumewillow Glade Scout Base at the top left of the map, while the Asmodians will find themselves at the Pinnacle Cataract Outpost in the bottom right corner. As with Kaldor, the starting areas for both races are separated from rest of the map and are thus one-way travel: once you jump off, you can't get back on. These areas are meant to be PvE areas inaccessible to members of the other race, though players have been using bugs and exploits to access these areas.

Bases Edit

Levinshor features 13 bases (mini-outposts) that can be captured and provide weekly quests awarding Blood Mark <Blood Mark> and sell crafting materials used in the Tomul/Denku skin sets. The bases are split into four color-coded "groups" based on the color of the circle around them. Each "group" has its own series of weekly quests (up to 3) that can be taken from any of the occupied bases belonging to that "group". To complete all 3 quests of a group however, the players will need to own all bases of that color group. Players can capture a base by defeating the warcaptain/subjugation leader NPCs found in the center.

Vocoliths Edit

Vocoliths are monuments that can be activated with Ancestor Relics to summon special elite monsters which advance related quests and drop materials needed to craft the Tomul/Denku skin sets. Ancestor Relics themselves are rare drops from hostile Shaman/Aquamancer-type monsters found around friendly bases, spawning only if at least 2 out of 3 in a color group have been captured by your faction.

Center Battle Edit

Veille and Mastarius have recovered from Tiamat's attack and will battle in the center of the map on specific days at a selected time. The factions can support them in taking down the opposing agent to have a chance at a piece from their faction agent's unique skin set.

Idian Depths Edit

Levinshor has four locations where access portals to the Idian Depths may appear at set times.

Trivia Edit

  • Levinshor used to have a number of daily as well as hidden bonus (semi)-weekly quests that awarded AP relics, supplements, and Ceramium Medal <Ceramium Medal>. The daily quests could be obtained from your faction's starting outpost, while the semi-weekly quests could be acquired from NPCs inside the Inggison/Gelkmaros fortresses owned by your faction (2 per fortress = 8 total). These quests were later removed following the revamp of the medal system and the collapse of the Inggison/Gelkmaros fortresses.

History Edit

The lush land of Levinshor belies a terrible secret, for long ago it was Tiamat’s seat of power prior to her ascension as a dragon lord. It had long been sealed away by a powerful barrier, but with Tiamat’s demise, Beritra was able to dispel the barrier and take control of Levinshor for his own purposes. Specifically, he desired the fruits of the Linkgate Foundry’s research. Seeing Beritra’s troops on the move, the Elyos and Asmodian forces realized the barrier must’ve been removed, and began their own incursions.
