Prepare for the battles ahead with almost double everything! From 5:00 PM UTC (10:00 AM PST) on March 24 to maintenance on March 29, we're doubling all experience gain, honor gains, vocation badge gains, and even doubling your loot drop chance!

Gains affected:

Double experience from all sources
Double vocation badges
Double honor from all sources
Double natural loot drop chance

Important Note: The double honor in this event will affect all sources of honor in game, even honor gained from serving on a jury and honor from quests! However, it will not double honor offered by guild buffs after serving on a trial.

Any chance we could ever get Double Guild XP or Prestige in the future with these events?

i think "natural drop" rate doesn't apply to loot drop rate. "natural drop" rate applies to gathering,logging,farming, etc. and not killing mobs - correct me if i m wrong =P

Be fair. They are not worthless to God or to their friends, families , and loved ones.

They are just, as a group, very bad at running a video game.

Why did this end early? I'm not getting double honor.

Vengeance server. It is only the 28th.

Edit: Also not getting double xp or vocation.

Probably because they setted the event timers on EU time zone, ahahaha.

Nope, this doesn't quite fit the facts:


From 5:00 PM UTC (10:00 AM PST) on March 24 to maintenance on March 29

The European ArcheAge servers will be unavailable at 2:00 AM UTC (PST+8) on Wednesday, March 29 for weekly maintenance.

2:00AM UTC = 7:00PM PDT

Event turned off at NA Daily Reset(5:00PM PDT)

I'm actually starting to wonder whether Trion gets the times wrong on purpose simply because it's expected to happen.

Once again, ended early on the 28th by or before reset, 5PM PST (UTC-7), not @ maintenance 12AM on the 29th.

As many of you may have noticed last night, we're happy to announce that this event has been extended to April 3rd at 10 AM PDT! Enjoy another weekend of great gains!

Damn, this is awsome! Love grinding arenas lmao.
Also, it's fricken pathetic how people here complain about everything- yes, Trion kinda sucks sometimes, but stuff like this is amazing. Stop crying when good stuff happens or we won't get it again.

Their servers use UTC but they tend to forget each time they announce events.

As stated in an earlier thread, this event has been extended to 4/4's server reset. It may be possible that the event will go on a bit longer beyond reset which, if it does, consider it a bonus!

Good to see you took a player's constructive criticism about how to handle event times when you aren't even sure of them.

We are aware that the event has officially ended once more, and this ending is intentional. We hope everyone enjoyed the two extensions of the event, and we look forward to doing more in the future.
