Dive into ArcheAge 4.0 – Maelstrom

Epic naval battles await you in Bloodsalt Bay!

Homecoming Warrior Gear

From December 13th until January 11th (11 PM PST/2 AM UTC) open the Marketplace and grab your Homecoming Warrior’s set! There are two versions with flexibility for new and veteran players.

Under Level 50
For 1 Silver, pick up your Maelstrom Beginner Bundle. Only one per account. Once unwrapped you’ll notice three tiers of wrapped, level-dependent boxes (Heroic Wrapped Greenhorn’s Bundle 10-30, Unique Wrapped Mercenary’s Bundle 30-44, Celestial Wrapped Veteran’s Bundle 44-50). After they’ve been opened you’ll have 10 days before the gear expires, so work and play hard to get to the next level tier.

ArcheAge: Maelstrom Official Patch Notes

ArcheAge: Maelstrom Official Patch Notes

The following release notes contain information about our latest major ArcheAge update: Maelstrom!

Organize your raids with the new Raid Bulletin Board & Co-Raid
“Send out the call. Let them know that we’re mounting an offense.”

Looking to get an extra edge on your raid organization? Look no further than the improvements to the Raid Bulletin Board and Co-Raid system!

To advertise your raid to other prospective adventurers, simply open the raid panel in the lower menu and then click on the magnifying glass icon. From there you’ll be able to browse other raids or make your own in the Raid Bulletin Board. Just select what you want to do, what time you want to do it, how many folks you’re looking for, and you’ll be on your way!

For those raids who find that they may be more popular than usual, you can forge a co-raid between two raids to create a group of up to 100 players. Everyone involved can get credit for participating in the activity, and you can even see the different raids and raid leaders indicated on the map.

Empower your items through the improved Lunagem system
“Wait? You’re telling me none of the experimental gems experienced explosive Archeum degeneration? You… you may be on to something.”

The Lunagem system has had a long awaited overhaul: No more RNG when slotting gems! Now upgrade your items with a much more reliable path of statistics. Learn all about the Lunagem system in this in-depth article.

Fight the region: Cross-server Arenas are here!
“Hey! Hey Arena Master! This line seems longer than normal! Are you giving away bacon or something?”

Fight beyond your normal limits in the new Cross-Server Balanced Arenas! This new technology has re-written the Arenas from the ground up so you can fight against opponents across your region.

Currently this technology is only limited to our balanced arenas and Bloodsalt Bay. But, the team is looking towards expanding it in the future to our unbalanced arenas, such as 1v1 matchups!

Mix and match your titles and stats in the new Title Collection System
“I keep insisting that everyone calls me ‘The Vainglorious Punkbuster,” but no one listens…”

Mix and match your titles and unlocked stats for the first time in ArcheAge! Visit the new Title Collection System (located in the Character window, where the old title change button resided) to view all of the titles in the game and how to achieve them. As you unlock titles, you will gain their related stats as an upgrade option and you’ll earn experience in the collection system. The more title levels you gain, the more icons you can display next to your name in-game!

Unlike the KR version, changing title effects will not require a Title Swap Certificate, but changing icons will. You can find the Icon Swap Certificates at the General Merchant.

Gaze upon the shiny, sleek redesigned Folio!
“Hey… wait a minute… did you move something in here?”

Fumbling around to find that perfect upgrade path? Looking for that elusive next armor upgrade? Don’t fret anymore, as the new Folio design is here. Featuring a focus on items rather than professions, it’s easier than ever to locate what you need in the Folio. Gaze upon the new design in this article.

Can you survive Bloodsalt Bay?
“Their souls have been trapped there for an eternity. Nui wants us to free them. Are you up to the task?”

The water is in your face. The scream of the sea surrounds you. The dead cry for your rescue.

Welcome to Bloodsalt Bay, ArcheAge’s first Naval Combat Arena! Upon entering, you’ll be placed on a team of up to 5 other adventurers from across your region. Your goal: Pilot your ship and collect as many souls as possible, either by hitting them with a cannon or ramming them with your ship.

But 3 other ships will be sailing into the Maelstrom to stop you from your task. And there’s a terrifying monster residing in the middle of the Arena. And there may be other monsters lurking outside of the Maelstrom. And there may be some magical enhancements hiding behind breakable, coral walls. And you only have 12 minutes to complete your task.

You have your work cut out for you, don’t you?

New Limited Time Events
“Someone told me there would be presents. And maybe a tree, but we should get back to the topic of presents.”

Get wet at the Drenched Festival

Perhaps winter isn’t the best time for this, but adventurers know how to take a few cold weather knocks! Jump into this special limited time arena where you’ll be equipped with a new trusty water gun. Your mission: Blast away the paint on the other players and clean them up before they can do the same to you.

Players can play this special arena 3 times per day, so be sure to jump in!

This arena will be available between Maelstrom’s launch on December 13 and December 27 at 2 AM UTC for EU, December 26 at 11 PM PDT for NA.

Enjoy Double Experience in celebration of Bloodsalt Bay!

With Bloodsalt Bay finally opening up off the shores, we’re celebrating with everyone’s favorite event: double everything. Starting with Maelstrom’s launch and ending on January 10th at 2 AM UTC for EU, January 9th at 11 PM PDT for NA, you can get:

  • Double Experience, Loot Drop Chance, Vocation, Honor, and Kyrios Medals between December 13 – 17, 23-24, 30-Jan. 2, Jan. 6-7.
  • On weekdays not noted above, gain double experience and loot drop chance!

Epic loot for an Epic Moment

Visit the Marketplace between Maelstrom’s launch and January 11 at 2 AM UTC, January 10 at 11 PM PDT, to get your set of epic gear!

If you’re below level 50, you can pick up a special pack of gear that will help you level up through the ranks much faster. The gear will keep changing as you get higher and higher, but it is time limited, so make sure to use it before the time runs out!

If you’re above level 50, you get a special pack of gear that will give you Homecoming Warrior’s armor. You can specifically choose your set of gear, making sure that the stats best match the class you’re trying to build.

Plus, make sure to purchase the Homecoming Warrior’s Challenge from the Marketplace each day to receive a quest. Complete this quest to earn Homecoming Warrior’s scraps, which can be used to upgrade your Homecoming gear to a T5 Obsidian equivalent! Don’t miss out!

New Lunagem System in Maelstrom

Now with 100% chance to socket!

In Maelstrom, the lunagem system has received a complete overhaul to allow for the guaranteed socketing of gems! Going forward, everyone will have the ability to fully gem their gear with no worry of losing their progress. If you’re ready to gem up, earn yourself some honor to get started once 4.0 releases on the 13th.

What Is Happening To Old Gems?

Here’s a helpful chart that shows off the new set of gem stats and the changes to where they can be socketed. If you do not see one of the pre-4.0 gems in this chart, then it will no longer be able to be crafted or upgraded once 4.0 hits.

Lunascales will not be able to be crafted in 4.0 either, but all old gems will remain socketable alongside the new gems. It will cost 500 Labor to socket a new gem. Old and new gems alike may also be unsocketed using a Mornstone (price change: 2400 Honor) and 500 Labor. The potential failure-to-socket functionality of the old gems still exists, which would remove all gems on the gear, including new gems. We suggest socketing old gems first, and then the new gems to avoid this horrible fate.

We had lobbied for old gems to be salvageable once Maelstrom arrives, however the developers at XL decided not to provide this feature. We know it would be preferable to allow for salvaging, so we’ll continue to advocate for that change.

Also, there are no changes to Lunafrosts in Maelstrom, or to the functionality of Hero gems – though the stats for Hero gems have changed. Hero gems will also be unsocketable.

How To Make New Gems

If you’re looking to start crafting a new T1 gem, be sure you’ve got 10,000 Honor, then check out the Honor Shop. To upgrade a T1 into a T2 head over to your nearest Handicraft Bench. T3 gems have not been released in the Korean build, so NA/EU will have to wait for those as well.

Lunarite is still used to upgrade the new gems and can be most commonly found in the following places:

  • Fireglow/Waveglow/Copperglow – Metallic Chests, Treasure Chests found with Treasure Maps
  • Galeglow – Mistsong Reticule, Mistsong Orb
  • Sunglow – Lord’s coin + 50 labor
  • Earthglow – Prestige shop

In 4.0 there will only be two tiers of Lunarite – Fine(T1) and Superior(T2). All pre-Maelstrom Lunarite converts to the new Lunarite in your inventory. Any 1:1 conversion will happen automatically when you log in after patching.

The current tiers will transform and convert in the following way:

How Do New Gems Work?

The new gems will 100% socket, without a chance to fail like the old gems. Because everyone will have the ability to ‘full gem’ without any RNG, the new gems will cost 500 Labor and more gold than the previous system. The cost in the old system was quite variable due to the RNG failure, and having to recreate and re-gem your gear upon failure. This rebalancing of cost is made in consideration of the old system costs and new lack of RNG.

There are six categories of gems, each of which can be uncloaked to select specific stats and socket placement. Gems can only be upgraded in their cloaked state — but don’t worry, all new gems can re-cloaked using a Transmuter. If you’d like to extract them, it’ll cost you a Mornstone and 500 Labor as previously stated. They may be re-socketed into different gear, or even into the same gear after you’ve upgraded it. If you’re looking to make some gold, you can even trade or sell them on the Auction House!
The new Maelstrom gem system overhaul has removed the RNG in favor of a more stable system and allows all players to reach their full-gem potential.

May your pants be fully-gemmed.

Maelstrom System Upgrades

Craft, Claim, and Conquer even better with the changes coming in 4.0!

Folio Upgrade

The Folio has a new look and the categories are arranged in such a way that new players will have an easier time progressing through their crafting. The updated organization highlights the main systems in the game. Property, Pets & Transport, Harvesting, Commerce and more.

The Character Equipment section is an overhaul of how players approach finding and setting personal goals for gear improvement. Need a new sword? Click on ‘Right Hand’ and find your future weapon, whether it’s ‘Crafted’, ‘Obsidian’, or from ‘Mistsong’. You’ll even be able to see the item’s upgrade paths much more clearly without having to navigate away from the item’s page. This simplification brings a clarity that all players, old and new, will appreciate.

Raid Recruitment Board & Co-Raid

If you’re looking for friends or just strong allies to join you on a difficult mission, you will now have the ability to post to the new Raid Recruitment Board. All applicants can be reviewed before being accepted. Set the time (UTC) you’re venturing out, number of players needed, and choose your activity – Raid (Kraken, Red Dragon, Leviathan, Thunderwing Titan, or just world bosses), Faction War (Mistmerrow, Golden Plains Battle), or other world events. If you’re accepting a call to action you’ll even be able to reply with the role you wish to serve in the adventure!

Once you’ve got a raid together, you might realize you need even more warm bodies to tank, dps, and heal. With the new Co-Raid system two raids of up to 50 adventurers each can join forces. Each raid keeps their own leader, but one is the Commander and the overall leader is the Admiral. If you’re the raid leader, a simple right-click menu option to form a Co-Raid is all you need to team up and take down your targets.

Title Collection System

How do you want to be known? Maybe as an Abyssal Archaeologist. But if you’re not into the stats that come with the title, you can now use the Title Collection system to pair your favorite title with your most desired stats! There are quite a lot of titles to collect, and you can even get some direction on where to find them. Collecting more titles will earn you progress towards unlocking new icons that will appear next to your name. Don’t worry, if you’ve already earned a bunch of titles all of your progress will be kept when this system goes live.

Flexible Obsidian Crafting

When upgrading any Obsidian gear to t5 or t6 players will use a Spellshift Orb to turn the item into a component for the next tier recipe. The component will keep the previous item’s grade, but will become an unequippable crafting material. After crafting the next tier, it will become a cloaked item. Uncloaking that item will now allow the player to choose which of the two paths they want the item to come out as (Uncloaking and choosing a path occurs at T4, T5, and T6). This new flexible system allows players to change their focus and/or gain access to more potential buyers, as they are not limited to finding those who are specifically on one path. We suggest finding the buyer before uncloaking!
