Labor changes, Pegasus mount coming to ArcheAge

    
105

Friday the 13th may have been a lucky day for ArcheAge fans! During Trion’s Friday livestream, Producer Merv “Khrolan” Lee Kwai revealed a move meant to increase the value of patron status: changing the offline labor regeneration rate to match the online rate. Starting about mid-April, paying players will accumulate 10 labor every five minutes whether or not they are logged in; there is no change to free accounts.

The livestream also highlighted more changes to Secrets of Ayanad coming later this month. On land, the necessary number of appraisal certificates will be determined by land size. Additionally, the Hasla raid boss Hanure the Hunter is getting a level bump to 55. In the air, a new gliding Pegasus mount will be available for purchase with loyalty points (approximately 625) or randomly from an Archeum Supply Crate. And in the water, fishing tournaments are slated to start next weekend.

A new event is also incoming. Spanning eight weekends (Thursdays through Sundays), Spirit of the Red Dragon will involve downing a mob that spawns three times each day and combining five scale drops to create a special cape with the appearance of red dragon wings.

LilyCheng I’d rather spend time or money to have fun (WoW or any other game without that Labor system), than spend time AND money to have… more work? Are you serious? what’s the point on playing games if it’s as tedious as real life economy!? Actually as I see it, Archeage is a good game to work in the breath you take of real life work to pay for your patron license to work in a virtual world. I’m the only one that sees the nonsense of this eastern “sandbox” concept? “Labor” is the next phase to make games like real world work, so we are constantly working. I’ll be rather playing a game wich I can actually ENJOY than some medieval-fantasy-real life economy simulator. I understand your frustration because you’ve probably already paid for this fraud, but that doesn’t mean you must sell the game to new players as BEST AMONG THE BEST (specially now that it’s going to hell day by day). Just take a walk in any GHOST-server. Almost 50% of people are AFK (among the few still playing). You’ll see not everybody think the concept it’s still funny at all.

You know, sometimes life gives you secret advices. Indirects that
makes you think something is going from worse to worst. There’s
something you’re spending on a MMO that isn’t been taken in
consideration anywhere: Lifetime. So given the rates at wich Labor
regenerates right now while being ONLINE, both F2P and P2W, I think this
game is done for a lot of people. You know, everything you can do in
this game is done by spending labour, but the rate at wich it
regenerates ONLINE is less than enough. Is far less than the amount
needed to remotely enjoy it having a life at the same time. So if the
choices given by XLgames/Trion here are “Pay for enjoy ingame or stop
playing”, I’ll rather choose the second. ¿Why you ask? Simple, because
if you play Archeage as it is now (specially if you are F2P) you’re
lossing lifetime and money, but if you choose to stop playing and go for
a P2P or other ways of having fun, you’ll be lossing nothing at all.
Maybe money if it’s a P2P, but not lifetime, because while you’re
playing the game you’ll be having fun without walls. That wall called
Labor. You know, the economy in games like WoW may not be perfect, but
at least people earn their gold having fun, not AFKing or simply waiting
doing nothing while that Labor thing refills (awful rate).
You
may say whatever you want, but in the alpha this game seems good and
innovative. Now it’s only innovative and good until the market gets
overload with F2P games with Archeage improved concepts without it’s
obvious fails. I hope subs still play this game in the future, when F2P
players decide to dedicate their lifetime to more fun things than afking
and working to enjoy the game (What’s the point on emulate real world
economy in a fantasy game? Wasn’t this suposed to be a stress relief?).
So, I wish you good luck with your patron licenses in a world where only
patrons and trial F2P players will survive. And by trial I mean low
level players that will either pay (some) or quit (the majority) when
they learn how this works.I understand you’ve already pay, but
don’t try to sell this fraud game to other people. It’s going to hell in
no time following this way, the greed of the company is the main cause.
So sorry if you spend real money on it, but it’s still not worth it.
Great concept + bad decissions = Ruined game. See it or not, but the facts are before your very own eyes. Can only get worse…

DaemonHardrod deganderson They may have gotten money , but the gaming community will never ever touch anything TRION stamped on. So i really don’t see how they win in any of the circumstances . They are done.

I’ve finally deleted this game the other day Yippee! I left behind 1500gold in the auction house and never to return what a waste of time it has been. “labor” was fairly easy to get but the service the worst in the world,  TRION ruined the game for me as they never gave a fuck. no really, they still don’t care, nor will they ever, as they are stubborn, rude, and basically do not have, nor, understand, duty of care.

I enjoyed the game in alpha, and again after launch, but these days Im only logging in to pay my land taxes and chop my trees. I never even finished building my house.

I enjoy the game itself but it really is just one of those ones thats no fun without friends. I had a great and friendly small guild, but it seems once their initial patron status ran out none of them kept playing. Every single name in my guild list is beside ‘last online 2-3 months ago’

I keep wanting to find a new guild but man…I just have to keep faction chat off, the sort of crap I see in that makes me despise the community, and looking for a guild on the forums for just casual play produced no luck ):
