The goalpost for ArcheAge character levels has been moved with today’s update, bringing both the character and skill level tree cap to 55. The good news for NA and EU players is that the XP to get from 50 to 55 is less than what Korean players have to tackle. The really good news is that more levels equals additional skills with which to experiment.
And that’s only the start of the fun of the Secrets of Ayanad update. Players can now go explore the contested zone of Diamond Shores, craft obsidian weapons, and duke it out in the Ayanad Library instances. Check out all of the changes and additions in the patch notes while you prepare to sprint (or leisurely stroll) to 55!
