Promotion Sales

Promotion sales are deals that happen for a short period of time. They can be found at the Featured and the Promotions categories of the Web Item Mall. The Promotion section of Shaiya Forums should be checked to view available promotions for the day. Some items may only be offered for a few hours out of the day so be sure the item is tagged as a promotional item and purchased during the correct time frame.

Look for the Promotional Tag on an item for purchase.

On the left you see a purple promo tag around the item’s icon, this item is available to count as the promotional deal. However on the left, is a red tag that shows that the item is indeed a top seller but this tag does not count toward the promotional items. Both screenshots were taken on the same day, but the items were found in different sections of forums. The left item in Promotions and the right in Consumables.

Tiered Rewards

Through out the month, Aeria Games promotional team hosts tiered events that allow to redeem additional rewards based on the amount of aeria points spent during that time. There are many types of tiers, and each one is unique, so checking the promotional monthly calendar and forums is important to know when and how these tiers will be run.

Small Tiers

Small tiers are tiered events that are run for only a few days at a time. These tiers do not offer as large rewards as the End of the Month or Monthly Loyalty Rewards, but they do offer a good selection of rewards at a smaller amount of AP spendage.

End of the Month

The End of the Month tier is the second largest tiered event of the month.This tier will offer you the best rewards for the month and the most amount of promotional sale items. It is often referred to as EoM. This tier is posted in advanced to allow players to give feedback on rewards so that the promotional team may change them to best fit the needs of the buyers. If planning on buying the EoM tier, it is important to research the rewards to be offered so that when the time comes to purchase you are prepared and know how much AP you will need to receive the rewards you desire.

Loyalty Rewards

The Loyalty Reward tiered event is a month long tier, that allows for the most rewards gained. All AP spent during the month, even if already applied to another tier, count to this reward system as well. Making it the biggest promotional event of the month.

  • Hey Shaiyans! Do you spread out your spending through the month and don't quite qualify for some of the higher tier levels before a tier ends? Do you get to the higher tier levels in most of the tiers each month? This month long tier is for you then!This tier will be running the whole month alongside all of our other promotions and tiers. Any purchase you make, from the web and in-game item malls, loot wheel, loot forge, etc. will count towards this month long tier. We have some exclusive prizes that we have included in this tier that for being a loyal supporter of Shaiya. Plus, you can participate for as little as 99 AP!

  • Follow this GM Service Guide to redeem the service your placeholder provides.

Some placeholders are tradeable but most are not, be sure to check this before retrieving the item from your bank because it may need to stay there in order to be active.
