New skills are the last thing I'm interested in for this patch.

As a massive, massive graphics whore, there's nothing that interests me as much as the new shader tech. Mmmm, eye candy...

I cant wait. Gonna be great. Hopefully 3.0 comes out sooner than later though, but 2.5 looks promising w/ the new graphics looks / minor tweaks here and there. Check out the full notes on Aion's site. Impressive

I got on the PTS yesterday to check out the new graphics on each faction and ended up playing most of the day. The Elyos side looks even prettier, but the Asmo areas I was in will take some getting used to, very bright colors now.

I'm not sure if it is the 2.5 patch, as it has been a long time since I've done the early quests, but they really made things easier in the lower level areas. Ignoring the extra XP and drop rates of the PTS, many of the quests are now simply easier to do thanks to more nodes (for collect quests) and with the mobs better spaced so you don't have to worry as much about pulling more onto you while trying to fight through some of the more constricted areas.
