And another is places the player in an existing Group in an Instanced Dungeon in progress. You just can use the Auto Group for Nochsana Training Camp, Fire Temple, Steel Rake, Dark Poeta, Upper Udas Temple, Lower Udas Temple and Empyrean Crucible.

Crafting Updates
There are two major additions to the Crafting system. The first addition affects elemental stones. You can now purchase designs to break down elemental stones into lower grade forms. These new designs have several practical applications.
The second addition is related to combat scrolls. These new designs offer an alternative to craft the four standard types of combat scrolls from materials found in Balaurea, rather than materials from Asmodae or Elysea. The introduction of these designs ensures that players no longer have to travel back to lower level zones to gather materials.

Runaway Poppy


Aion 2.6 Runaway Poppy


Runaway Poppy is a new production pet introduced in 2.6, and can be purchased with Crucible Insignias in the Marchutan Priory or Kaisinel Academy.
By participating in the Crucible Challenge, you will acquire Poppy Snacks, which Runaway Poppy will scarf down with much delight. Each time Poppy eats a Poppy Snack, it will produce a reward bundle which can contain a number of useful items.
