Atreia is the "planet" in the Aion universe where the game is played. Unlike planets of our universe, Atreia resembles two hollow hemispheres (or rather, "hemi-shells") with a single axle tower, the Tower of Eternity, connecting the centers of the two halves. Life flourished inside the shell-like bowels, while the "surface" of the world is barren. The two races don't live on the exterior of the planet (as we do on the earth e.g.). By contrast they live on the inside of the hemisphere halves of the planet.

Due to a catalytic event during the Millennium War, the Tower of Eternity is now broken, and rifts in the fabric of space known collectively as the Abyss now occupy much of the center of Atreia.

The following project shows essence/aether gathering and rift locations across the maps of Atreia. It may be incomplete as I am not playing Aion anymore, but still keep coming back to update this project from time to time. Feel free to check it out and send any comments you might have my way.
