Fall into the Abyss: Pick up some credits for limited-time Orchidna themed bonuses

Now’s a great time to grab some credits! Purchase one of the below credit packs and you’ll receive one of the following bonus gifts.

Unlike the prior bonus gifts from credit packs, you’ll be able to obtain these gifts multiple times per account.

Pick up a $50 Credit Pack for a BONUS tradable Orchidna’s Dream Lunastone!

Looking for a different augmentation to amp your defense? Use this lunafrost on your existing costume synthesis garb to increase your defense and resistance stats after being attacked. This buff can stack up to 7 times.

This Lunafrost can also be traded/sold on the Auction House or amongst friends. If that doesn’t suit your fancy, then you can drop by the Merit Store and pick up a bound version for 300 Merit Badges!

Pick up a $100 Credit Pack and receive a BONUS Orchidna’s Snakeskin Shroud and 2 tradable Orchidna’s Dream Lunastone!

Wrap yourself in the fury of the Abyss and live up to the Queen’s reign. This new Library Expedition costume is based on the look of Orchidna’s new dress, snakes and all. The Shroud and Lunastones are also tradable, so feel free to get it for friends or sell it to “friends.”

Livestream Recap, GHOOOOOOOOST Edition: April 7, 2017

Greetings Adventurers! Here’s a small recap of the topics we covered on today’s livestream!

The White Arden Ghost Wedding starts on April 25 with maintenance! – Next week you can take a walk on the spirit side with the White Arden Ghost Wedding! Learn more about the festival in our Patch Notes, or check out the stream for the full walkthrough. (Spoiler Alert: Hereafter Stones.)

3.5 Discussion Begin Early May – We know a ton of you are excited about Update 3.5: Erenor Eternal, and we are too. We also know you guys have a lot of questions, and soon we will have a great many answers. Our reveal of Erenor Eternal is coming up in early May, and you’ll be getting an info dump very soon!

Q&A! – We also took a lot of time out of the livestream to answer as many questions as we could. Here’s just some of them that we addressed:

Q: Gief ghost yata mount?

It seems people are pretty hype about this suggestion. Looks like it’s one we’ll definitely make to XL!

Q: Will the hot tub come back to the marketplace or is it available for a prize?

It’s currently a prize in the Joyful Homebuilder Society contest if you win! Enter today!

Q: My brother’s uncle’s cousin-twice-removed’s best friend works at Trion and he says there’s a regrade event soon?

First of all, that’s not a question. Second of all, y’all know we keep that super top-secret. If there’s a regrade event, you’ll know the day the event starts. We do that in order to make sure the economy doesn’t tilt when people hear about a regrade event.

Best answer for this: If you hope hard enough, maybe.

Q: Are the Ghost Wedding tokens expiring at the end of the festival?

No, that was totally a typo. Those Festival Coins are going to be safe in your inventory, and won’t disappear. The temporary costume, Wraithwisp Tokens, and quest items WILL disappear at the end of the event though.

Q: Can we reduce the GCD on single-planting now that there are less bots?

While we’re happy that there are less bots and our security is keeping them out, this isn’t a change we’re looking to make to the game.

Q: Are you thinking of doing the 1 credit transfers ever again?

It’s been brought up. If we did do it again, it would definitely be involved with moving players from low population servers to higher population servers, but we’re not looking at anything like this in the near-term.

Q. Are there any measures taken against players who artificially push zones to peace by killing alts or AFKs?

Yes, there are. You can get in trouble for doing this, so please do not do it! (We see you, Hellswampers.) If you see this in-game, report it to us at http://support.trionworlds.com.

Q: Some of us have heard that in Erenor Eternal in Korea, Regrades now display their % chance of success. Are there any thoughts of applying such a system to Archeum Crates or Misagon Crates?

This is a pretty exciting update, and we’re really happy with it. While a system like this isn’t coming to those crates anytime soon, we do push for more visiblity into those aspects of the game. it’s why we’ve recently redesigned how we announce our supply crates, so we can better show you the categories of rarity in them.

Q: Are there any plans to change Leviathan so he can be attempted again with current ship components?

Yes, Leviathan is very much being discussed amongst the teams, as we’d like to see more attempts on his life happen again.

Q: Do you agree that the Barcode nation in ArcheAge is a bunch of memes?

We agree that the entire community is a bunch of memes. Have you been with us very long? Our community takes on big jobs every day. MysticWizard knows what we’re sayin’.

Q: I find that the login tracker rewards don’t feel good enough on legacy. Can they be changed for those who have been working on end game?

We try and keep the rewards rotating and interesting for as many people as possible. It’s not easy (or entirely fair) to target rewards at one specific type of player, like a homebuilder or crafter or end-game player. Everybody wants different stuff. Generally, the login tracker needs to offer solid rewards that can’t be abused by a bunch of alts.

Q: Can double honor for open-world PvP simply be the new norm?

We LOVE all of the pvp people do when we run double events. This is something we can talk about more in Erenor Eternal, because there’s a big bump in honor gains across the board in the update.

Q: Will we ever see cross-server Arena queues?

This is something we have requested and lobbied for for 2.5-3 years. We are absolutely all about this suggestion, and we feel it needs to be done. And who knows, they may be working on it.

Q: Is multiboxing being disabled?

No, this is not something we’re looking to do at this time. Current multiboxing rules continue to stay.

Q: Will a workbench be added for the marketplace event tab tokens that were removed early last year??

Those tokens were specifically made to last for a specific amount of time, and we’re not looking at bringing back any sort of tab or workbench to make those redeemable again. Sorry!

Q: Will festivals have a way to make their temporary costumes/mounts permanent via coins?

This is definitely a mechanic we’ve done in the past. While we can’t confirm it as an absolute yes for future events, it is something we do consider.

That’s all for this week, Adventurers! Remember, you can always watch the replay live on Twitch or YouTube.

Keep Calm and Om Nom: The Sweetest Home in ArcheAge is here!

Ah goddess, I think I just gained 5 pounds from looking at this house.
