From The Aion Wiki

An Aion area in the Abyss that winning factions can control.


Capturing a Fortress

Fortresses are attackable PvPvE objectives. These can be controlled by the Elyos, the Asmodians or the Balaur. Influence is granted to the faction holding it. Fortresses also have vendors that sell DP-morphing recipes. While a fortress is under the control of the player's faction, the player can teleport to the fortress from the main stronghold for a price. The most prominent legion in the capturing of the Fortress receive a share of all of the Kinah spent at the Fortress.

Contribution Decorations

Contribution Decorations are required for more advanced pieces of Abyss gear in addition to Abyss Points. They are generally required for Abyss armor and weaponry at level 40 and beyond. Silver Contribution Decorations are obtained through participating in fortress sieges. To obtain Gold Contribution Decorations players are required to gamble their current Silver Contribution Decorations by tossing them into a fountain below their respective fortresses. Each time they have a chance to obtain a gold decoration or lose the silver in the process and gain nothing.
