NCsoft's second dev diary for the upcoming massively-multiplayer online game tells you everything you need to know about creating a character in Aion.
Thank goodness for developer diaries. I was getting very tired of explaining the tiered class system and combination skills to all of my friends. Now I can take care of it in one fell swoop by directing them to this video. As of right now, I've played 5 of the 8 final classes, with Ranger, Cleric, and Gladiator being my only blind spots. Chanter and Assassin are probably my favorites, really coming into their own once they branch off from the starting class.
