ArcheAge producer examines the Archon class

    
10
Springtime for ArcheAge.

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.

Sythalin Daggerspell isn’t that great anymore. Most people lean toward cabalist. Anyway it doesn’t matter what class you are if you spend enough money to bypass RNG for the top gear that is unobtainable for average players.

squidgod2000 There was a guy in my old AA guild that had earned the moniker ‘The Wallet Warrior’. It was pure derision from the rest of the guild, but he didn’t get it, he was 14 and using his parents money, and thought that this was buying him popularity and that everyone in the guild was his friend. He would jump around during guild meetings, shooting off fireworks and tried to get as much attention as possible. I wonder if he epitomized AA’s target market?

Sythalin Story of my life when I was playing a Shadehunter, but I still love that class even if I no longer play the game. Were I still in, I’d still be Shadhunter.

This is their “latest PR push” ?!?!?!

I think they need to fire all their PR people and start over.

Any build is a great build if you’ve got a high enough limit on your credit card.
