Trion’s latest ArcheAge PR push centers around “underplayed off-meta PvP builds that synergize exceptionally well with the introduction of Secrets of Ayanad.” The first such build is the Archon, which results from a player choosing the Archery, Defense, and Witchcraft skill trees.
“Archons are dueling specialists and lose effectiveness when involved in multi-opponent PvP,” writes producer Merv Lee Kwai. “It’s difficult for them to focus on multiple targets due to having limited burst damage. The class takes a bit of practice to get the hang of since it’s untraditional but once it’s mastered you’ll often find that your opponents are surprised at your capabilities.”
Kwai’s post features abilities and combo suggestions as well as rotation advice for dealing with melee, caster, healer, and archer opponents.[Source: Archon class feature]
