ArcheAge’s remastering isn’t coming westward, final Maelstrom build hits the PTS soon

If you don’t have time to sit through 46 minutes of Trion’s latest ArcheAge stream, you might want to check out two minutes of YouTuber Niver instead. He’s rounded up the key points, including the fact that players should expect compensation for the EU server DDOS outages that were still going on last week.

As far as 4.0, the final build should hit the PTS soon, with new changes to gems (old gems won’t be salvageable but will be socktable), old buffs will be usable (but not craftable), you can’t get lunarite from sunken treasure, and cargo will see a nerf (to be rejiggered later). Beyond that, Trion doesn’t know when 4.5 will port westward, and the Riches From the Depths event isn’t on the docket yet either. Christmas will land after 4.0, however.

Also of note is that Trion says the ArcheAge remastering announced for Korea last week is not planned for the western version of the game.

Trion also put up a new post detailing changes to the lunagem system as overhauled in 4.0 Maelstrom; the key bit is that they will socket every single time with no chance to fail thanks to RNG that makes you want to punch a hole in the wall.

I wonder if Trion offered the option of subscription based servers if it would bring people back to the game . Probably not but I have seen in quite a few people saying they would love this game if it had a sub in forums for years .

It probably would, but everyone would be skeptical of those Sub based servers turning P2W eventually like every other server they have said wouldn’t be.

I’ve said it before about a few games in the past that they would be better off with a sub only. I would return to AA with a sub only model. I’d be ok with a cosmetics only cash shop and $15-$20 a month for the sub. I enjoyed AA from Alpha right up until the most recent server merge. I would gladly return if they made a few adjustments to their business model.

Sub only server would be perfect. Sign me up.

Any marketing guys will tell you that $9.99 is the price point you want if your looking to move units in large numbers.

A high % of people at this/similar sites say they want sub-based games. But we have lots and lots of evidence, across many devs and games, that non-Wow, mandatory-subs aren’t viable. I so no reason why it would be different for AA. The fact that IIRC it launched sub in Korea and had to convert makes it less likely they would try it here.

The remastering must not be P2W enough for TRION to capitalize on.
