ArcheAge releases the Dread Prophecies update

Ghost ships? An aggravated kraken? Just what in Sam Hill is going on in ArcheAge these days, anyway?

Well, the fantasy sandpark has released one of its biggest updates yet with The Dread Prophecies. The sea-focused patch adds plenty of ways to customize player ships while improving the nautical physics. These souped-up vessels will need to be at their best to tackle a new kraken encounter and fight off world boss ghost ships.

The Dread Prophecies doesn’t stop there, either. The devs have changed Freedich Isle to become a more intense PvP experience, added the Golden Ruins zone, introduced the Mistmerrow battleground, put in more housing in Diamond Shores, and tweaked the archeum and regrade systems. Patron players will also see increased offline labor regeneration as part of their subscription benefits.

On Reddit, usually a grumpy place for ArcheAge fans, the tone is remarkably pleased. Check out the patch’s release video below.

Darthbawl I like the ding of achievements though, so that rain of achievements you get when you first log in FELT SO GOOD.

I haven’t been able to bring myself to log in for months. In archeage you have two choices in how to gear up in order to finally participate effectively in pvp.
Either spend weeks/months spending all your ingame time fishing or running trade packs, or invest heavily in the cash shop to have fun right now.

First time you log in now that they turned on the achievement system, you will be bombarded with a slew of achievement unlocked messages on the screen.  Also, the system is still buggy, they (Trion) are aware of it and they are tracking any issues.  Example: system said I have played the game <10 hours.  I have no gotten any achievements for playing beyond that.  Obviously I have played way more than 10 hours.  Might take a few days or more for them to fix it.

Maybe they should just change it to Dead Prophecies. Unless this game made a HUGE monetization move and revamped the way Trion handles the PR, I don’t see myself coming back anytime soon.

Meh…quit months ago on two accounts due to the many reasons not to play this. If you don’t know those reasons by now, go back to sleep. nothing to see here.

RNG-age and client hacking are the major issues and will not be solved.

No need to waste time in that universe.

Archeage? Not twice.

It’s not that people are less grumpy, it more that nobody cares anymore.

Happy so far, but all I do is farm and commerce really.  I could do without the #pastygate.  :

I played this when it first came out and enjoyed it, though I stopped playing when my sub expired.  (It was around the holidays so did not have time and money to play)   Every update I see looks like it is more and more fun and interesting.  Just can’t seem to convince myself to lead it back up and play some more.  Not sure why…

Patrons also get +10% XP on top of the previous +10% XP they got vs. non-patrons.  That’s +20% XP now for those of you still waking up. :D
