The Aerakyn race, first announced at SOE Live 2014, will be released on November 11, 2014. It will be purchased in the Marketplace for Station Cash. [1]

With the conclusion of the Age’s End storyline, we came to see that there are Aerakyn who set themselves apart from the Awakened Legion where they were first introduced. They have lost their original home and we wanted to let the players be the story of their appearance and acceptance into Norrath.

Original Announcement

Announced at SOE Live 2014, the Aerakyn race will be purchasable on the Marketplace for Station Cash (like the Freeblood). They are not part of the Altar of Malice expansion, but will be released "when they are ready." [2] According to Lyndro, they will have Freeport and Qeyons racial quests and race change potions will have Aerakyn as a choice as long as you've unlocked them.

Aerakyn will have wings that grow as you level and can fly at 85. [3]
