is there anyway to change the time of abyssal attack to a later time because it interferes with Mistmerrow and Haylcona because it does start before those times but the event leads into other events so I was wondering if you can change it so it will be after Haylcona

1) Will there be a increase in drop rate for ayanad design? Or is there any other means to farm the design?

2) Is there any plans for GMT timezone players to participate castle siege? As for the current castle siege timing, I am unable to participate and enjoy the castle siege.

3) Any updates on increasing the family size?

Good morning Knowledge wielder !

Here are My requests of informations !

1 : What are the event planned for the next months? We had the labour event, the trade pack event, and PVP event.
I love short event like these and I hope Trion has a lot for us too !


I take Japan Archeage as Example for May and June.

May : Every weekend is "monster slaughter fest!" First week-end of may every monster gives twice XP points, the second weekends gives twice droprate, third is same as first and so on.

Secret mission of the Daru :
Every day you get a mail with a quest item that gives you a mission, you have 24hours to complete it.
The mission asks you to travel to some places in the world where a Daru has a machine that will translate your mission sheet into a Daru memo which is a random kill quest; for example "kill dahuta", "kill X sharks around freedich", Kill rangora.
The reward is one 1000 labor potion and either of the 3 : 1-3 Gilda stars, 1-3 5% drop increase pot, 1-3 100 labor potion.

There are also 5 hidden daru in the world that you have to find that will give you a stamp everytime you find him. Once you find the 5 Daru, you have to find the Daru general in Ice kingdom that will reward you with a 5000 vocation/2000honor potion.

"Let's Kill the Leviathan!":
During this event, The Leviathan HP regen has been temporary drastically reduced, and every ship sunk by the leviathan will get the Shatigon's sand 50% reimbursed (works only if leviathan gives final blow)

"Red dragon regrade fest":
During 7days, all regrade are 50% more successful, there is also the possibility of exchanging 5 regrade scroll of one type to get one of your choosing : example exchange 5 armor regrade scroll for 1 weapon regrade scroll !
Every player get a 24hour timed red dragon glider ( which is awesome looking must admit )

Also there is a Calendar on the Website where you can see when event starts/ends

Source : http://archeage.pmang.jp/ (I heard that it might be IP blocked for people in Europe, I will put screen shot if people ask for them )

2: Archeum is plenty available now thank you. What are Trion thoughts about how much archeum is in the game after dread prophecy ? Too few, Too much, Just as we wanted? Same goes for regrade point.

3: Event Timers. Is there any changes to be expected on ingame event time ? Like abyssal kraken, mistmerrow, halcyona, freedich trader etc.
3a: Is the main reason for having the same time in EU and NA is that it is easier to handle serverwise ?

4: As it is a custom in Asia, did you bring us any gifts from Korea? :)

Any plans on making a "black arrow" mount for the other mirage mount? Since mirage horses can be upgraded to black arrow i was thinking why not the other mirage mount too. It will be interesting and definitely will add variety to players having different types of mount.

What about a title for the exploration proficiency?

One if you have all the exploration achievements and one if you have 50k proficiency.

Right now, the proficiency has 0 benefits, improving it is useless. I was also kind of disappointed to get nothing special after discovering all the 395 exploration spots with my character..

are red regrade charms being added to the loyalty store?
way too high demand on them results in big price differences after new cashboxes that have them are introduced, thus leading to ppl stockpiling them instead of using.

Hey!

1) Any plans to revert rift honor back to 1500 honor like in alpha/KR/RU with the new updated gems?
-this would help reduce the horrible 1v1s grinding since alot of people do not enjoy that (this is an open world pvp game :) )
-make rifts worth pvping over getting people out into the world more

2) Any plans on removing the cooldown from worker compensations like Alpha/KR/RU ?
-crafting (tailoring/leather/handicrafting etc) is greatly hindered by the 12hr cooldown which is why on the biggest AH cluster there is hardly any ephe+ gear
-opens up more way of making gold (grinding library would be worth it, since you could just keep popping labor pots opening purses, and helps getting more ayanad designs on AH)
-leveling an alt is annoying and trion would make way more $$ by removing the cd instead of the silly character expansion scrolls

3) The day the unnormalized gliders showed up on the AH, people got really excited. Even with normalized gliders there is still a major tier list of gliders (gliders that were slow in KR are now really OP in NA since that was their drawback). Any plans to denormalize gliders?

Its extremely difficult to get black pearls for crafting- are any changes planned?

Will recipes come in that will allow me to use the gazillion lobsters and starfish that Im getting from fish traps?

Why can a fishing boat harpoon and destroy my clipper when im a very long way away from it?

1) Labor is always A problem
The packages of potion are a good idea but limited has the only one a month it is too little.

Pots always are too expensive to see even more than before. Planned you to make something ?

I'am all the time out of labor and pots cost 55/60g on ah...

2) For Timber coupe, can you confirm us that she is on with the 1.7b.
- What changes were brought to it?
- The design will be purchasable with vocation badge or gilda stars ?

Three Questions

1) Castle sieges - On Dahuta when a siege scroll goes up on the ah, the guild who owns it cannot defend the castle, they disband the guild and relocate the lodestone under a new guild so the scroll disappears from the AH. Therefore we are unable to bid on these castles and enact end game content. If we bid we also lose the gold. Is this an exploit or a fair game mechanic? If it is an exploit what will be done about it?

2) PvP Cloaks - Why do these only last 10 days? Can you not make them expensive and then remove the 10 day timer?

3) Carts can be destroyed in one hit with 8k health, are there plans to increase their health?

Thank you

Hi,

as an Australia player my 1st request would be about the schedule for events such as abyssal Mistmerrow, Freedich trader, castle siege etc. I understand the team is meant to bring this up with XLGames, all I can add is please stress to them how much a significant portion of the player community is missing out and is significantly disadvantaged by not being able to participate.

Also, posting a diary/schedule of those events would be great; even if you only put times in EST/EDT most of us down here are capable to make the conversion of find a website that does :-)

Labor is an issue again, despite the fact that patrons get full regen even when logged off. between the coin purses and crafting obsidian gear alone, wiping 5k of labor doesn't take long. Either increase the regen amount and/or make labor pots random drops in purses (and remove or substantially reduce the cool down too).

Also, what is the purpose of the extra tiers in proficiency? getting to artisan Level 4 and only seeing "good job" and not earning any new benefits or reduction in labor cost is disappointing.

Don't forget to mention that they have setup 2 dummy guilds on the east in order to facilitate this on both Nuimari and Calmlands.

In the meantime they get the peace fund and taxes. I feel with you that this is a way of exploiting a faulty game mechanic which they should have simply reported instead of using it to create a little extra bag of gold to fill the REAL guild's coffers.

Q3: Have you finaly planed something for the growling yawl or are you still figuring out ? :)

Will there be a better/easier way to obtain Ayanad designs? Right now, even if you're blessed by RNGudas, there is no way to upgrade your gear to Ayanad.
People are not farming library mobs and the drop rate is really low. Isn't the crafting RNG challenging enough?

I think you can buy a random Ayanad design for 150 Loyalty tokens in KR, something like that would make everything better.

As its currently stands the event time really needs to be changed by regions. A lot of NA players on NA server is not able to do any of the events. The time sucks. Just as you guys know that at 2pm(14:00) PDT you are at work and you guys can't get to the event either if the time can be change for regions than making them at 5 or 6pm (17:00-1800) will be the best since most are already at home or have a change to be there by rushing home. I know it sucks for Aussie players with that change but it is the NA server and Trion is a NA company base on the west coast.

Please, please, please change the time that the event's happen in game, you are killing the game, peace times are to long, the events/wars overlap each other and week days must be hell for those getting up and going to work.

In your interview with XL Games they stressed the challenge of balancing the experience for hardcore vs casual players.

The change to the T4 obsidian drops in Serpentis has killed obsidian crafting for all but the most hardcore players.

Can you be clear on how this will be fixed and when?

Q: any news on group signal up for 5v5s and thoughts of making it more rewarding? Currently its more rewarding spamming 1v1s then playing with your friends/guildies.

Q:thoughts of adding permanent honor to auroria, as an alternativ means of grinding honor? Would make game more open World then its current theme park State.

Q:any plans for the near future to reintroduce pirates being able to attack doing peace? Why is it the outlaws follow peace between two waring factions?

Q:werent great white suppose to be faction bound in 1.7? Still seeing a lot of mainlanders using it.

1. Any plans of restoring / fixing Yuletide and Rudolph Hauler health back to how it was (12.7k for Yuletide, 15k for Rudolph) before 1.7a patch?
2. Ironclad nerf. Do we have to wait until Khrolan and co. return from S.Korea for an actual answer?
3. Gold spammer has returned, be it in faction chat or through mailbox. How on earth do they bypassed the filter/security set by Trion last time? It works very well, but now the can type the whole advertisement without having to use cryptic symbols anymore and spam it 4-5 times in a row.

SERPENTIS 5th Room Boss "Carmilla" is BROKEN.

The poison circles that occur for the 2nd half of the fight are INVISIBLE / show up much faster / and now drain mana.

As a result of these changes/possible bugs, Carmilla is near impossible to beat. Please advise if there are plans to fix the Serpentis/Carmilla fight.

1. Ironclad nerf: any changes? Compensation or restore original damage (or some upgrade chance?).
You sell other than you promised us. We buy gold and you send us sh!t (worthless placeholder machine).

2. fixing target player bugs?:
2.a. unable to report player (farming bots): "invalid target". Example: Nebe server - Shaman characters in Hellswamp/Woodhenge Castle
2.b. marked player "drop" the mark/change to unmarked in 0,1 sec

will there be new regions added in 1.7b? If so where will they be?

based on the quest to find the leviathan will this creature roam openly through out that region of the sea and will the border there be removed so players do not loose their ships and lives?

In regards to event times instead of a static time for events is it possible to have for example Mistmerrow and Abyssal Kraken to be on a 20 or 22 hour loop that way you are not really adding to much gold or whatever the reason you have for running them only once per day.

For example 9pm EDT then the next day it would appear at 7pm and then 5pm and so on this way all of your player base are on an even footing and have equal opportunity.

This should be easily implemented for Mistmerrow.

But would like it seen for Abyssal Kraken and Fishing competitions as well as any others that have had the many complaints I have seen on the forum.

If this is not feasible would you consider at least have more events with less rewards as at the moment a select group of your player base are reaping substantial rewards because others are unable to compete.

Thank you

Im really looking forward to watching people cry and rage about how much money they threw at RNG boxes so ........ Can we get more RNG boxes with high drop rate of something useless ? Seems like they are the best content EVER !!!!

Can we get a nerf to everything and a buff to something ?

Can we get free cake on wednesdays ?

Can you make horses have a backflip skill ?

Can we have weather effects to kill all those old computers ?

What is your stand on the chasing unicorn riding rabbits through town in your underwear ?

1. When a player joins or leaves/kick a guild, the red text is pretty hard to notice, especially when all your skills/farming etc also displays a red text.
Could we get another method of seeing who enters and leaves a guild? Change the colour? Or make a different back ground for it? And just like that over all, cause that red text is hard to notice.

2. Please fix the UI, that resets when ever you crash, alt-tab, or changing resolution, logging on the alts, just general random reset.

3. Please make all the stuff tradeable, that you can get from the RNG boxes.

4. Can we get an Icon in the Raid/Group and Guild tab, so we can see which players that is AFK/Away?

5. Change the times on siege/events on EU servers! Its summer time, so its even worse!! Make it more suitable, so all players can enjoy it!! <--- This is the most damaging and important change!!! If other MMO's can do it, then you can also.. Please please..

6. Please give players some materials back when ever you destroy your house..
1. You can demolish it straight away and get 25% back?
2. You can pack it down slowly(hours/days) and get 50%-75% materials back?
Seems abit more logical, that you can actually get some stuff back to reuse again.

7. Take a look at the achievement's again. It's broken..

8. A suggestion to the loyalty tokens in the market place. Can you make it, like a tier thing. 1 tier cost this amount, 2 tier cost this amount, etc etc. Im at 900 loyalty points, but don't really wanna use em, as I don't know how much the next big thing is gonna cost. So a guideline, that this is as much as 1 item would ever cost, so I could use some more loyalty. :p

War cycles--- Last time we asked for a shorter time to push areas to war we got longer peace times. What we need is to be able to push areas to war faster not longer peace times. Ollo has seen a reduction is PVP zones going to war (some areas lucky to go to war once a week before reset drops zones back to a one) and lower population servers never see war time in PVP zones.

1. Ironclad nerf. Is there a fix on the way?

2. Removing mount normalization. Any progress on the Tier 3 mounts? Can we get a list of them?

3. Submarines. Status?

4. Server Transfers. Still working on this?

5. Can you name a top 5 list of things coming in 1.7b?

6. Griffon Mount. Any ETA?

7. Abyssal Attack. Can we get the time changed on US servers to a more friendly US time?

8. Bind on Account items. You already have an RNG system that makes getting an item VERY difficult. If we get something we don't need/want or if we get extra lucky and get 2 of the same (see mounts/image gear), we should be able to send them to other characters on our account. It's not messing up the economy since they still can't be sold.

9. Any plans for more events/ideas that allow players to gain some extra Loyalty points?

Q:
Naval Cannons currently do 20% damage less than High-Angle Siege cannons while according to the tooltip they should do 7% more (with the downside of Naval cannons beeing to have a lower range).
Naval Cannons are completely useless with those stats compared to all other cannons.
Is it an error in the translation of the tooltip and they will stay this way or are the damage values wrong and we will see a fix to this?
ETA on the fix?

-Please fix the map icons/radar on main character toons, several people have complained about not being able to see any of them. Eta on this or at least comment that you are working on it.

-Red Regrade charms need to get out of just the rng boxes, the demand is sickening.

-Move the time of Abyssal Attack, 5pm est is not prime time and is an awful time for a majority of your player base. (likewise move mistmerrow accordingly)

Some servers are being really dominated by one side and this is causing many people to leave the server/game. We need you to intervene as soon as possible, whether that's locking certain races on each server, locking the high pop servers or offering a transfer.

Please consider increasing the Ayanad design drop rate. It is waaaay to low and nobody is going to the library anymore. (or in any significant constant number that would allow for these items to hit the market). Please re-consider just how they drop... make them like Haunted chests? Cash shop, quest, vocational etc...

Good day, hope you guys enjoyed your trip to speak with XL games.

Today I wish to inquire from you whether with the recent expansion of the proficiency ranks if there was any chance if the max rank an item can passively proc to while crafting is also being increased? Is a bit lame (and pointless) if you have 180000 Proficiency in a crafting skill and items cant passively proc higher than Celestial (which was mentioned to be the max lvl told to me in a previous live stream)

Second question is whether the issue of the increased lag and frame rate drop since latest patch is being addressed? I Live in South Africa and already the ping/latency is quite bad but with latest patch any form of pvp has become near impossible. Or has Archeage become one of those games now where its an eu/american exclusive and the rest of t he world be damned?

Ayanad drop design increase, or another way to obtain and chose what design is received.

Add cross server arenas.

In regards to Achievements:

Is there any plans to award players with achievements they have already earned but haven't triggered? For example, those who already have a Thunder Dash but did not get the achievement for having a Stormdarter. Those who had a Bounty Hunter Cloak but fused it with the dragon wings and can no longer achieve that? There is countless more, is there any plan to grant the rewards from those?

EDIT: Another question, is there any plans to do more events like the ones the led up to Dread Prophecies? The 20 Loyalty, double honor and such? Is there any plans in the foreseeable future to do events rewarding merit badges instead?

Is there an ETA on fixing the server side map issue causing radar and map icons to not work? There are multiple forum posts about the issue but there is not an acknowledgment that it is a known issue.

Bots, bots and more bots are everywhere still. People botting until lvl 55. People using Archebuddy for cheats such as farming bots and trade bots. As opposed to what most people think, these have never gone away. Reported bots in game day, they're still there. No use wasting my labor when they're just being ignored.

For farming bots who farm their own land, ban them AND the owner of the land, in addition to where they have been sending their proceeds to. Or is the reason why they're being ignored is because they have patron? Or is this being allowed?

For those people who sometimes wonder how their guild members are able to come up with so much cash without [doing trade packs/reselling/selling credits or APEX], if you look deeper, some of those have been cheating their way while you play legitimately.

Q1: The Black Pearl shells that are needed to craft T4 Dawnsdrop armor and upper tier rings are short in supply, hard to farm, and very expensive at the moment, are there any plans to fix this like add some to the rng chests for a few weeks?


Q2: Why do the items in my storage chest keep getting juggled around?

Good day, hope you guys enjoyed your trip to speak with XL games.

Today I wish to inquire from you whether with the recent expansion of the proficiency ranks if there was any chance if the max rank an item can passively proc to while crafting is also being increased? Is a bit lame (and pointless) if you have 180000 Proficiency in a crafting skill and items cant passively proc higher than Celestial (which was mentioned to be the max lvl told to me in a previous live stream)

Second question is whether the issue of the increased lag and frame rate drop since latest patch is being addressed? I Live in South Africa and already the ping/latency is quite bad but with latest patch any form of pvp has become near impossible. Or has Archeage become one of those games now where its an eu/american exclusive and the rest of t he world be damned?

Can anyone else confirm that you cannot proc a higher rarity than Celestial through crafting? I can find very few sources that address this question. I was under the belief that you could proc all the way to Mythic through crafting but that it was just incredibly unlikely to happen. Can anyone confirm what Karthenoir stated about this?

I just blew a bazillion gold on regrading a sea drake figure head cuz it says "for clipper". After having spent said gold, I now realize it is not for a clipper. It apparently isn't used for anything at the moment. Can we trade them for usable items plz?

Are there any plans to address the new bottleneck in crafting jewelry being Black Pearls? Current rarity being worse than thunderstruck trees due to being only obtainable in the wild. Are there plans to offer alternate methods to obtain this item, increased drop percentage or make them harvestable in water gardens?

I have heard that there was an "event" in KR which helped with this, will we see this event?

Are more ship hulls in development?

Such as different types of equipment places for current ships, an example would be cannon slots on the front of a galleon. Also different ships entirely. For example: A destroyer, which would be similar to clipper type vessel with more than 1 gun. A troop transport/ boarding vessel, no guns and more speed. That kind of thing.

In this format, we address the game topics proposed in this thread as well as popular threads from the official forums. We'll also field follow-up and additional questions from the livestream chat. Got a question for the team? Post it in this forum thread!

PEGASUS ARMOR??????????

I waited for the patch so I could use my tokens from the Aqua boxes to try for a Pegasus before I used my Loyalty. The Celestial Box is not there so I used my tokens on other less useful boxes. When I went to buy the Armor it was gone as well. Please Please being the Armageddon Armor back so we can still get the cool Armor for the Pegasus. I though you guys said you were leaving it on for a while so everyone had time to get it.

Hey Scapes, I had some questions about this so here goes:

Tonight a house expired and I went to try to get it, there were only like 2 or 3 other ppl there, yet it was instantly grabbed up by (I didn't even see the red go away, thing demo'd and then bam new structure) someone who wasn't anywhere to be seen. So, I can only conclude it was someone running a 3rd party program and ninja'd the spot w/ it

I know this is an even bigger problem on higher population servers, and I know you guys work hard to remove bots that are confirmed, but we kinda have to prove they're bots and it also takes time. The way things are now, someone could buy 2 apex for in game gold, and bot an account to land grab, and sell the spots and make WELL over the cost of 2 apexs they used for the account, so even if it does get banned there's no real downside for them. ESP on a demo trade, you can only see that it was demo'd, if they gave the gold to their main account, u wouldn't even be able to trace and remove the gold.

So, I have some questions/suggestions, because banning the botted accounts after the damage is done, does us no good as far as housing goes.

#1) the 20s thing. After the house dies it's ALWAYS like the same amount of time before something can be placed. because of the duration, a lot of ppl spam click (even w/ the 5s wait) to try to have it land as soon as possible. If this was a random interval, it would circumvent some of the botting, as sometimes it would work, and sometimes it would not.

#2) Range. I've had guildies lose land to someone who was 3 farms away doing a demo trade. I know it's been talked about before that maybe u can have a window or something where only specific people can place, and that would be nice to have too, but lowering the range so ppl can't ninja it from 3 farms away inside another house, would be great. The only downside I see to that would be in reguards to:

#3) stealth. I know stealth is important for trying to grab a house in a contested area. But people aren't really using it for that, they're using it to prevent being reported as using 3rd party botting programs. Do we really need to allow stealth while placing? Most of the time I see ppl get spots in contested areas, they ask for help and they just keep the baddies away that way. Could we just make it so u can't be stealthed while placing?

#4) Logging. Typically ppl who land grab hack (at least in my experience) insta log after they get the property so they aren't reported. Could you maybe change it so they can't do that or something along that line? I mean I don't want to force ppl to stay in but u could do it like having a summons out, where it makes u wait 10m after placement to be able to log. To someone who plays on the account, I dont' think this would be a big deal, as u could just go do some other stuff for 10m

I know new players get frustrated by not being able to get new land, and even tho I have some land, I find it frustrating to not even get the chance to try to place because of 3rd party programs. Maybe some other people could chime in here, but banning the bots after the land is grabbed, doesn't really do much to help anyone. It would be better to make it so using a 3rd party program to try to grab it is unreliable in the first place.

there should be a period where all potential house claimers (30 seconds ie) click to place, and if in conflict, enter into a duel like FFA situation. last man standing who lives to click a closing command once every else is dead..and if this fails, the whichever survivor is most proximal should get it..i know this sounds complicated, but it would just be 3 easy steps to ensure any third party person would fail.

that being said, i am not a cheater and i have won several land grabs by being stealthy and clever, with the crowds all puzzled and raging about someone cheating...

Is there any news on whether Faction Transfer will be available in 1.7b or any future patches (and when)? A lot of servers have unbalanced factions which demoralizes the losing faction too much and in turn kills off competitiveness in pvp.

Right now, on most servers, black pearls (handicraft) are being camped by teleport hackers, that appear when the pearl becomes mature, ther is no chance to get one on the wild, and as a rare drop from pearl oysters is just ridiculous, got only one after planting about 26k of them. Any chance of the drop rate to be increased in the future?
