Happy new year! The Marketplace and Loyalty Store have been updated.


http://webcdn.triongames.com/archeage/community/AA_DANCE_SLOTH.gif

New Marketplace Items

Friendly Flyer Treasure Chest: Has a chance to contain a rare Sloth Glider (Glider Companion: Sloth). This glider has been adjusted to match the stats of other gliders available through the Marketplace or Founder's Packs.
This chest has a chance to drop one of four types of high-tier Feast Table, which is a buff food for a group of up to 10 people. As a greater portion of the playerbase is reaching higher levels, we'd like to expose more players who might not be familiar with endgame content or high level buff items to the existence of these types of buffs and their usefulness, increasing the market for these items overall. Additionally, as we move toward the increase to level 55, both XLGames and Trion are working on ways to encourage players not at the leading edge of gear progression toward improving their gear in preparation for more difficult content. Part of this involves some upcoming in-game promotions around the Serpentis and Sea of Drowned Love 10-player instances, for which most players should find these group buff items useful. This lockbox, and therefore the Feast items coming from it, will not be a permanent addition to the store and this source of Feast items will fall off with the next Marketplace update.
Important: The Friendly Flyer Chest and Sloth Glider are both Bind on Pickup.
Important: The Glider Smokescreens that can be received from these lockboxes are currently bugged and do not work with the Glider skill.
Pet Dual Recovery Potion: This potion can be used to heal the wounds your pet or mount has suffered from being slain in battle.


New Loyalty Store Items

Sloth Glider (Glider Companion: Sloth): The Sloth Glider from the new Friendly Flyer Treasure Chest is also available for 350 Loyalty Tokens.
Rumbling Archeum Tree Sapling: Available for 35 Loyalty Tokens, this sapling yields Archeum Crystals when harvested and has a much higher chance to become Thunderstruck compared to other saplings.

Still no answer to the supposed future "fixed" speed on mirage donkey. Almost enough loyalty for a sloth as well as broken mirage donkey in the time we've been waiting for a "it is supposed to and will run at x m/s forward". All we have gotten is a "it's not going at it's intended speed" and "supposed to have similar speed reductions at directions other than forward as the other mounts do". What's to say that the sloth glider isn't also "broken" and they just haven't said it needs "fixing" yet, with no mention of how it will function?

TLDR - WTB NUMERICAL VALUE ON DONKEY SPEED, BEEN WAITING 2 MONTHS WITHOUT ANSWER

Dude....y'all dropped $100-$200 for an in game sloth that sits on your back?

You know, my oil bill today was $400. And I'm just trying to imagine the world in which parents give their 12 year olds half a tank of heating oil to gamble online for a digital sloth.

Y'all got some priority mix ups. If you can afford $200 worth of gambling on boxes then don't complain when you get jack-all. You could have spent that money on much better endeavors and you knew there was a chance you'd get nothing.

This exactly.

Im a normal adult, trying to get by..... i love the game, it has its issues.

But even if i was rich, i would never drop $200 for a item like the sloth.

Maybe a instant i win button, sold only to me.


Edit. Yea, got propane filled other day, live in virginia. Been cold baby. Others have it wore tho

This. Their drop rates are for ♥♥♥♥. We all know that. If I were still playing AA I would never buy any of their boxes. If you want to gamble in a game, find another game. There are games that give better gambling value.

Are we ever going to get any content that's not designed to exploit younger people's inclination to gamble. Like some actuall in game achievable content. You know. Some reason besides standing afk to regen labor to be on this train wreck of a game anymore.

The real piss off is the turbolence. I've both the Red Dragon and Sloth gliders. Why the Divebomb ability of the first one isn't affected by turbolence ( which makes you cover huge distances on sea battles ) while the Backward Roll is ? I mean dunno, it's my opinion of course but I find it stupid among all the general nerfs.

Only way to get Archeum, Cash shop. Main point of game, Crafting. Only way to Craft, Archeum... Crafting= Cash Shop/Archeum Crate.

Archeum crate=RNG God. RNG God=$$$$$$$ in Trions pocket.

Unfortunately people must pay hundreds of dollars in addition to the 15 a month for patron to keep this cash cow flowing, no cash players means no Archeum which means no crafting which means no game.

Also this game is geared towards gambling addicts, think about how nearly every aspect of the game is all "Chance" and you pay real cash to take those chances, and very rarely get rewarded.

I make about 5k gold a week and my gear is only comparable to GHA gear... I have also spent around 1k real money on this game because I am the exact type of person this game targets...

Hi, I have a question. 1k USD does not sound like a huge amount to me, though I only spent 15$ for the subscription and about 40$ (20$ per month for all the subscription I did not need to pay cause Trion compensated us for their failures) to get the inventory expansions. My question is if another game would come by today that would be everything AA is not (as in better than AA, same genre, decent RNG, etc) would you move to that game without blinking an eye (and start spending there too) or more money you put in AA more committed you are?

I cancelled my subscription btw, but I was wondering if I could do that because I spent almost nothing on it or enough is enough no matter the initial commitment.

This is so weird that you would make such a claim because, just last night I obtained a few Moonlight and Sunlight Archeum Crystals just from killing monsters and opening the coin purses that they dropped.

Are you sure the "only way to get Archeum" is the Cash shop?

Am I dreaming when I break down pieces of gear I don't need and it turns into Archeum?

And there are also Archeum Tree Saplings available at the Mirage Isles for 3 Gilda Stars each. Yeah, you need land in Auroria, but still, you can get archeum from them... INFINITE ARCHEUM.

Thanks to all the whales (see beginning of thread) for funding the development of the game. No, you aren't entitled to easy RNG items, but again, thanks.

If you're completely freaking nuts and spend that much money on a game to try and get the dumbest effing item I've ever seen... You deserve every bit of it. The sloth glider is completely freaking ******ed, it's a ridiculous joke gone bad. Gliders with cool wings, sweet, if I were a little drunk I'd drop $5 just for a cosmetic. Probably not even. But over $100 on something that is ♥♥♥♥ING DUMB as a sloth glider? God you people suck lol. If you're complaining about spending that much and not getting a sloth, get help.

If they were actually developing the game that would be one thing. Instead they are just implementing predatory unlicensed casino scheme designed to milk a few people for a short period of time. Its a pity, because the game is good. But most of the RNG mechanics are abusive.
