Downloading Aika and troubleshooting

If you are new to Aika online (or if I or someone in the guild has recommended you to play Aika online), we have compiled this guide for Downloading Aika online and troubleshooting, along with setting up your new gpotato account, and getting beta keys (if you want to play during the closed beta.)

First, I will describe what a closed beta is.
A closed Beta is basically a test of the game. The company has a limited number of people test out the new features of the game and make sure that everything is in order. We test for glitches (like being stuck in a wall or spells not casting when they should), quest errors (like the quest says to find monster A in Area B, but the monster is actually in Area C) and other small errors like this. We do this in order to improve the game so when it goes live, it is completely play-able and so that people don't get frustrated with trying to find monster A in Area B.
Also, we play to get a better understanding of the game mechanics so that when the actual game comes out, we do not make as many mistakes as the rest of the people. We already know how to enchant items, use the anvil, and many other features of the game, and are capable of helping the new members of the gaming community figure out how to play too. We have a better knowledge of the quests, how to succeed in Dungeon Instances, how to win Raids, and how to skill our characters so that they can perform to their best ability.
After the completion of the Closed Beta Tests, ALL CHARACTERS WILL BE ERASED. When the Open Beta comes out, you will have to start over, but that in most cases is a good thing. You have a clean slate to make your character the best it can be.
If you know little about Aika, then read here. If you know all about the nations and classes, then skip ahead to the downloading section.


*I take no credit for the following paragraphs on nations. They are owned by Gpotato.*

Traits: Honorable, Lawful, Noble

Citizens of Alethius are concerned with justice and fair play. They want to preserve order in their nation, and they value respect and chivalry. Their battles are sportsmanlike as opposed to being driven by vengeance or avarice, unlike their counterparts in Ostyrion. Alethians take pride in the effective structure of their nation’s social establishments (guilds, etc.). They strive to be honorable and place great importance on maintaining a stellar personal reputation. They feel that they are morally superior to people of other nations and have strong national pride, but they are willing to help non-Alethians provided the terms are fair to everyone. If any nation, group, or individual attempts to cheat an Alethian, rest assured that the offending party will be dealt with swiftly and severely.

Traits: Explorative, Knowledgeable, Tenacious

The people of Feonir are less inclined towards war, and tend more towards exploration and acquisition. Feonians are independent-minded and generally won’t attack other nations preemptively, not wishing to leave themselves vulnerable to other attacks. They defend their relics and altars fiercely, and guard their nation’s borders with tenacity. Some may consider Feonians stubborn and overly skeptical of others, but their resistance to outside pressure is actually evidence of considerable inner toughness. They are interested in the depth and variety built into the world: the environs, their professions’ mechanics, the many different kinds of items they can acquire from killing monsters, and the equipment they create through crafting. They consider themselves more knowledgeable about the world than people of any other nation.

Traits: Friendly, Good-natured, Harmonious

Lenarians are very focused on the social aspect of Aika. They enjoy cooperative activities such as questing in groups because it gives them a fun way to interact with other people. Social bonds are paramount in this nation, as Lenarians value strong community ties and fellowship over more materialistic, quantified goals. They gather themselves into guilds and parties to hang out with their friends and cultivate connections with fellow citizens. Lenarians think the other nations take war too seriously, but they may initiate alliances with them for the sake of building friendly international relations.

Traits: Chaotic, Predatory, Treacherous

Driven by bloodthirst, the nation of Ostyrion is not for the faint of heart. Ostyrions lust for the kill, no matter how unfair or immoral the fight may be, and they do not hesitate to double-cross each other on a whim. They don’t trust anyone, but may band into packs to prey upon others who are weaker or bear riches. Other than these ad hoc formations, Ostyrion tends to lack significant organization in the form of stable guilds, parties, etc. The quasi-feral nature of this nation means that only the most callous and rapacious will thrive. Ostyrions are famous for believing that they are all the most skilled fighters in the world, an opinion they have no qualms about proclaiming far and wide. They possess no national pride, with the exception of looking down on the citizens of other nations more than they look down on each other.

Traits: Cunning, Militaristic, Ruthless

Vanov is a very militaristic nation. Their guilds are strong and hierarchical, and leaders do not tolerate dissent. Not only do Vanovians have a reputation for their ferocity in war, their commanders are renowned for their strategic and tactical prowess. They consider building their military strength to be their national goal, and they constantly contend with each other and other nations for dominance. Their guilds may make alliances with each other, or the nation itself might ally with other nations, but only when the Vanovians involved see the benefit to themselves. Vanov is not the ideal place for the freewheeling, anti-establishment type. This nation is about group efficiency and power, neither of which can be developed to full potential if ideas like “disagreement” and “non-standard thinking” interfere. Citizens of Vanov have national pride and may trust the people they form groups with, but they remain closed to everyone else.

Please note that classes are gender-locked, meaning that if you want to play a cleric, it has to have a female's appearance. This is done to shorten render times and speed up the server. This is one of the reasons why Aika online has so little lag. That does not mean that you have to be male to play a male toon, nor does it mean you must be female to play a female toon.

Cleric-(female) Main healer with some powerful damage-dealing skills. (spoken from experience.)
Dual Gunner- (female) Powerful damage-dealing class that wields 2 guns. This class can go invisible.
Paladin- (Female) Your main tank. It has high defense but low attack power. Uses a 1-hand shield and a 1-hand sword. This class is used to draw aggression from other players onto herself.
Rifleman- (Male) uses a rifle to deal large amounts of damage. This class can also go invisible for a period of time.
Warlock- (Male) Your main mage class that is a powerful damage dealer. The downside is that it has low defense. This class can transform it's enemies into rabbits and cause them to be silenced, rendering them incapable of attacking.
Warrior- (male) A powerful damage dealer that wields a two-handed sword. They use powerful physical attacks.


This is the link to create your gpotato account. Gpotato accounts are free. You use your screenname and account password to log into the game. Your character's name should not be your gpotato account screenname.

The link to download Aika Online:

The link to get a beta key: *note that you need a beta key for your account in order to play the closed beta of Aika. You do not need a beta key to play the open beta. Closed beta 2 starts on Feb. 24th-March 2nd. We do not know if there will be a 3rd closed beta. Characters are wiped before open beta. You keep the same characters all through the closed betas. Characters made in Open Beta are not erased.*

Please note that you cannot play the game until the 24th, so if you are unable to login, that is why. To redeem your beta key, go to this link: * please note that you must redeem your beta key before you download/play the game.* for this link to work, you MUST BE LOGGED INTO YOUR GPOTATO ACCOUNT beforehand!
I hope this helps!
