This has an interesting, ethereal vibe. The layout will take some getting used to, but so did Stormwind, and it’s not as though I have any reason to come here often. The crystals are kind of neat and — why is there a laser light show in the big chamber? Not, like, mystic images, these are holograms of demonic foes. And there is some kind of giant light being in the basement.
Part of me thinks that this is perfectly proper. The Burning Legion is a bunch of demons, the forces of darkness, and they are opposed by the forces of light. Going literal is actually pretty creative, rather than taking the traditional Western path of having angels in opposition. (Does that make Aion creative for taking the standard Western path in a Korean game?) All this time people were talking about being blessed by the Light, and here it is. Part of me wonders why aliens on spaceships with lasers are in a fantasy setting.
Part of me thinks of Robert Asprin and “demon” as basically another word for “alien from another dimension.”
I like their towns in Outland more.
