Getting the most out of your time wandering the world of Aion also means bringing back as much as possible. Most players are surprised to discover that you can actually expand your inventory from the initial 27 spaces all the way to a full 90 spaces. If only doing it were that easy.
You start the game with just 27 spaces of inventory and as early as the beginning zone you may expand it! In Aion your inventory is referred to as your “Cube” and can be expanded one row of 9 spaces at a time. The first 5 expansions can be purchased while another 2 rows are available via quests. Only a few shugo through out the world offer the cube expansion option.
Baevrunerk – Akarios Village (Poeta) – Offers only the first of 5 expansions.
Heerunerk & Yiehmonerk – Hall of Prosperity (Sanctum) – Offers 4 of the 5 expansions.
Jarumonerk – See below for location – Offers all of the expansions.
Finding Jarumonerk can be complicated but luckily the level 37 campaign quest “New Wings” requires you visit his out of the way location. The island is not on the map but is located in the upper abyss. It takes approximately 80 seconds of flight time to reach it without the use of any flight speed scrolls or potions. I personally recommend 90 seconds if it is your first trip.
Following the five purchased cube expansions a simple quest is unlocked in Sanctum which provides you with yet another row of cube space. It starts at Demodocos, who resides just behind the elevator platform under Protectors Hall. After receiving the quest “A lucky day” you will have to cross Sanctum and speak with Yiehmonerk. This will conclude the quest and grant you an additional row in your cube.
At this point we’ve discussed a total of nine rows worth of cube space, thats an amazing 81 spaces compared to the starting 27. However, with a little work there is still another row to be obtained. The quest to receive this last row is unlocked at level 35 and is quite long. It starts at a shugo named Poporinerk near the center of the Heiron region.
The quest is relatively simple although a couple areas may become confusing. The diary for the first part, called “The Legend of Vindachinerk,” drops off the named porgus “Jaku the Glutton.” Jaku can be found near an intersection on the road east of Poporinerk. It should be fairly simple again until you are asked to speak with Garkbinerk.
Garkbinerk is located on Black Cloud island, yet another unmapped location that takes a little faith to find. It is located in the southern part of the upper abyss and anyone with their level 30 wings should have no trouble reaching it. The map below shows the shortest flight possible to find the island.
The last piece of the quest that may be confusing is trying to find Vindachinerk. The confusing thing is that he only appears during specific hours of the day. In addition to only appearing during specific hours, Vindachinerk has three possible location where he may appear. The map below gives the appearance times and the three possible locations where he shows up.
That should allow you to complete the quest and achieve the full 90 cube slots available in Aion. If you find yourself having trouble with some aspect of the quests that this guide doesn’t cover, remember to read the quest text and it should get you on your way.
You don't have to purchase 5 expansions for the Sanctum quest Lucky Day to become available. It became available to me at 29.
Correct. I didn't point this out but thanks for reminding me. You do NOT have to purchase ANY cube expansions to get the quests. If you do the quests, it simply adds another row without increasing your cost of buying cube expansions. In other words, you can choose when to buy expansions or do quests in whichever order you want.
