ArcheAge producer’s letter announces its next major patch and system changes

    
41
Oh, here we go.
It may be hard to believe, but ArcheAge has just about reached global parity. The North American and European versions run by Trion Worlds are just one patch behind the Korean live version now, and the newest producer’s letter reveals that players can expect patch 2.9 to land on the live servers on May 31st. That means castles, the nation system, skill balancing, the equipment encyclopedia, a new boss, and plenty of other additions as the clients are fully caught up.

There’s more coming to the game as well, including a new regional split for event times between North America and Europe so that events are more accessible for all, skill queue functionality, and a new name change system. What’s not coming at this point are further server merges, with the current plan being to offer incentives to play on lower population servers rather than merging them. If you’re looking forward to the future of ArcheAge, you should take a look at the full rundown of what’s coming around the bend.

MorpayneRADIO Again, that is a lie. I have never spent more than the subscribe price, have 3 characters with 6k gear score that can fight PvP very well.
People dont know how to play the game and start to spread lies, sad.

Sythalin That is a lie in so many ways. I have only paid for patron (subscribe $15 month) and have 3 characters with 6k equipament point.
You just dont know how to play the game.

Should have stuck with a subscription. This is one of those games that would REALLY benefit from being p2p. The labour system, the RNG crafting, Hasla weapons… all that crap that came with the original f2p conversion has made the game straight up worse. It’s a real shame because I loved the seafaring and crafting parts of it… but it’s hard to enjoy it when every facet of the game is laced with the taint of a bad f2p implementation.

Zariarn Sythalin theeknighthood If crafting is your preferred part of the game then yes, the pool absolutely is p2w.

Honestly, as much as I like BDO there are quite a few things that Archeage simply does much better. BDO has fishing, building boats, and sailing but none of it holds a candle to the same experience in AA. Archeage also has a level cap, which means that once you get end game gear you are good to go, as opposed to hitting 50 and having zero chance against a 55 like in BDO. Archeage is a better PvP game. Archeage also has better crafting, more interesting gear, better and more versatile character classes, and finally it has actual dungeons and raids.
Seriously, if Archeage hadn’t gone the P2W direction I’d still be playing it because it does so many things right. BDO is an excellent game, but it didn’t make people stop caring about Archeage, the horrible P2W nature of Archeage is what made people stop caring about Archeage.

I was a huge Rift and Defiance (yes, Defiance) fanboy, but ArcheAge completely put me off Trion games. I don’t care if they buy the EQ IP and release EQN—I’ll never touch another Trion game.

DanielMiller3  The balloons from Mirage Isle are coming with an upcoming event, actually. You’ll be able to obtain them in-game via the Guildies With Benefits event, which is starting soon.

Celestrata is a fake!!!!   She still won’t update on when we get balloons!!!!   When do we get balloons?  And you lie about bots.  You know how many teleport bosses i see daily at the hasla pack maker?  They teleport while the rest of us spend thirty minutes moving them.

I don’t care about panda glider, where are our Balloons to decorate our houses with personal pictures we can add!!!!!
