ArcheAge transfers to Kakao officially begin today – here’s what you’ve gotta do

But you won't be able to play there until December 2

And now we're good,yes?

ArcheAge fans, yesterday was the last time your data on Gamigo’s servers will be saved. From here on out, you’re going to need to operate through Kakao.

As of today, players can log into their accounts through the Glyphe website, snag their transfer codes, and then log into Kakao’s transfer application site to use said code. You’ll then have to agree to Kakao’s terms and select your new region. And then… you sit back and wait because Kakao’s servers don’t actually kick off until December 2nd, though apparently you can still play on Gamigo’s servers in the meantime, but nothing you do will be saved, so maybe this is your chance to do something particularly risky, eh?

As we’ve been covering, Gamigo and Kakao abruptly announced the handoff earlier this month. While accounts themselves can be transferred, along with characters and credits, not everything is coming with you – including your land, so yes, expect a massive land rush.

Yesterday, Kakao also took the wraps off its renovation plans for ArcheAge Unchained, which will include a subscription and a removal of pay-to-win elements from the cash shop.

Which company ran ArcheAge in the West (EU) before Gamigo took over?
I can’t find a password for ArcheAge or Gamigo among my gaming credentials.

I’m actually considering just letting my ArcheAge account expire and character(s) perish in the ether. I haven’t really logged in seriously since Unchained’s early days, after rage-quitting and deleting shortly after the original game’s launch.

To paraphrase Swifty below — fool me once, fool me twice, won’t fool me thrice, etc.

I’ll need to weigh my options.

Got the email with the info for transferring my account…

Tempted to give it a whirl while waiting on Endwalker, though the last time I tried the game simply would not launch, and none of the suggested solutions I could find at the time worked.

So, here’s a question: If Kakao will manage Archeage as a whole, what will happen with their F2P servers? Will it have the same monetization and the improvements will only target Unchained?

After reading through everything posted about the transfer, it looks like the F2P model’s monetization will stay the same – at least no changes have been posted. Unchained was meant to be the sub model with no P2W features in the first place, but Gamingo took it in a different direction, by far. That’s what it appears Kakao wants to correct.

The F2P servers are an abomination upon whatever god still cares about this good earth. Archeage has one of the worst monetizations of the industry, and Unchained should not be the only one to be fixed.

I wonder if I can play AA without a house. I remember it being difficult to do because I enjoy crafting, social, and house deco side of the game. I read that there won’t be a limit to how many houses you can own when the game goes live. If that’s the case, I highly doubt I’ll get even a small house. I really should let this one go because FFXIV expansion, SW:ToR expansion, FO76 holiday & new season… ugh.

I don’t remember the last time I had this many decisions deciding what MMO to play.

Last time I played, there were people who played without a house. All they would do is farm dailies/weeklies, and Larceny purses (and maybe some pirating on the side). They would do this so that their gear was in tip-top shape, dumping all their gold and time into their gear set. Crafting and housing is a bit of a gold sink, so it was a very viable way to play if all you cared about is gear.

But that doesn’t sound like your style. I’ve heard of people playing just by using public farms, not sure how that would be. Really, I don’t think you’d have a problem placing a house if you wanted to. I doubt the game will be that popular, and doesn’t sound like there’s any fresh start servers. The outer zones are usually empty and underrated imo.

Thanks for the info! It wouldn’t hurt to check those areas. Although if I can get a marine house, I’ll go the treasure hunter route this time. That would be fun!

Yeah it’s really fun. I’ll caution you that both treasure hunting and the beach house are usually activities you transition to. Ideally you have a good foundation for making gold/gilda so you can build up your funds and move into those costly pursuits.

I recommend sport fishing if you like it, although just a fishing boat will set you back quite a bit. You can sport fish and eventually get gold for a beach house with a fishing stand to sell at. Then, start building out a submarine. Otherwise, maybe best to start with the farming/trade running route. Also maybe doing some of this with friends will allow you short cuts.

I played for 2 years at release. I acquired a small house and farm plot, then got a marine house. A ship came next and I was setting up with crafting diving gear before I left. My 2nd run with Unchained, just went for the large house first, then quit after that fiasco.

I should still have my tractor. Might even have a bunch of gilda, if that’s still the currency. Music and ocean sea hunting would be a blast this time around. Ahh! Yes, I think lots of sea stuff is used to craft music paper, if I’m remembering correctly. I’m sort of hyping myself up now.

Really like how they revamped the system since the BDO migration. Rather than two party account linking, one account generates a hash and you provide that to the target account. Much simpler
