ArcheAge’s costumes will soon come with stats and levels

Fashion or power: Who says you can’t have both? Not ArcheAge, that’s for sure, because the game is getting ready to introduce costumes with stats that level up over time.

According to a post by CM Seraphina Brennan, these special costumes have been live in Korea for a while now and have been in demand in the west. The new system will use “in-game methods” to level, including crafting.

“As the base costume levels up, it will gain additional stats. In the initial ranks, the pool of possible stats it will draw from will be very limited,” Brennan writes. “But what’s important here is that the base costume is leveled up and made more powerful by in-game item drops and in-game crafting.”

The improved costume synthesis system is coming this month along with the hard mode for Mistsong Summit. The team is currently testing a new skill queue and promised that server transfers will return by the end of the month.

Estranged That’s good to know, both that you still play sometimes, and that you and I share a common love for the Kelari. <3 :0)

I still muck around in my sprawling wizard’s tower on Faeblight from time to time, and doodle with my wardrobe, but Trion makes it a little harder with each poke to the cash shop.

@Cyroselle I jump in during holidays/events. Run some instant adventures. Some Vanilla dungeons. Play house. I really miss the game, but I’m just upset with them right now.
Yes, I think the Kelari are vastly superior.

Estranged Cyroselle Yus! Kelari race is best race! Well, IMHO. I haven’t updated my souls to the most recent ones though, nor have I updated to the new calling. Maybe someday.
Do you still play, Mr. Estranged?

a year ago this would have had 300+ comments.  ArcheAge – no one cares much any more.

The “P2W”-ness of these seems to be in line with the rest of the game. You cannot buy these things with RMT, but RMT will have a few indirect ways of benefitting people who are willing to spend money. Doesn’t seem like something that should be a big change to people who are actually playing the game (unlike pretty much everyone here).

Cyroselle That would have been on the alpha servers (I think), so I say they can get away with saying this is new to the live servers.
