Hello & happy new year 2018,

I saw on database a lot of Lunastone like : Inoch, Lucius, etc. is there any release date for them ?

Is there any official information for about our 4.5 ?

01-04-2018, 10:46 PM
Questions for the Livestream:

Will there ever be a fix for:
- the UI Lag - there was so much feedback to help you fix this, but its been months and nothing has changed.
- the revive bug
- the chat bug
- getting stuck in combat
- the sleepsong bug, where you fall through the ground

When will we get a fix for the drop rates, since its proven and confirmed by Trion and XL that we have not the same as other regions?

Afk bug in the Arena and x-server arena. When can we expect a fix for this?

Will the X-Mas box event be extended?

Will there be a fix for the spellshift orb, since XL removed it in 4.5 seeing how it was bad for the game. Can we expect this change before 4.5 will be live in NA/EU?

Are there any plans in the future to upgrade the current engine, since the CryEngine 3 is horrible as it is atm.

Why were NA and EU players not involved in the testing for the 4.5 skill changes like you told us? You also told us that we will have the chance to report feedback to XL directly in the future. Just empty phrases like many other times in the past?


01-04-2018, 10:47 PM
Does Trion think that the Spellshift orb required for upgrading obsidian gear is too expensive at 30 sunset pearls each?

Any news on bug fixes for any of the following:

Wave Healing Hymn not bouncing to all party members
Game crashing on dungeon zone in/out or boss spawn(most notably Aria)
Revive needing to be cast multiple times on the same person before it works
Getting 'Stuck' in combat
Inability to minutely alter Stat Migration once cap has been reached without having to completely reset
Inability to click Login Tracker occasionally because of the dual reset times it has
Bugged AFK timer in Cross Server Arenas
Double negative on Assorted Ribs PvE received damage
Some Daily Contract quests still giving Merit Badges
Marketplace 30-day Revive Scroll
Forest Spirit 'Ode to Recovery' not working

What is being done to make Fireglow Lunarite more available?

Will we ever get the third dimension of the Library back?

Will we ever get the Dimensional Storage Chest Design back?

Can we get a replacement for the useless Cruel Binding Defense Abyssal Skill, or a nerf to the Ravenspine wings that made the skill completely useless?

When will we be getting some new, expensive items in the Gilda Star Shop?(Items moved there from Merit Badge Shop don't count)

01-05-2018, 12:31 AM
Q: The Crime Cleaner Item is available again at the General Merchant but it is still unusable... Is this item intended to be Released in our build? if not can we have it removed? if So can we request it to be fixed?

01-05-2018, 12:33 AM
My questions is: What news gives about the fresh start server. Most importand is the date. I must make my holiday plan. Thank you!

01-05-2018, 02:02 AM
Questions for the Livestream:

1. Are we gonna get the same drop rate for Metallic Crates as it is on KR and RU region?
(Right now the drop rate for Metallic Crates is at least 5x times worst then it is on KR and RU region)

2. Are you guys planning to give a Compensation to the ones who opened Metallic Crates in the time frame of 4.0 patch release till a few days ago when the Metallic Crates drop table rate was fixed.
(On livestream you guys said: "XL looked and found the drop rate for crates we have didn't match other regions for whatever reason, and obviously we think it should." Many of us opened over 100 Metallic Crates after the 4.0 patch and we just got screwed... We should get a compensation)

3. When we will get the 4.5 patch?
(My opinion is the 4.0 patch kinda ruined the game. Archeage is going through a downfall direction, so many things are wrong that makes the players lose their motivation to play this game that once was awesome. With patch 4.5 many things gonna change and my opinion is the game will become again awesome again, 4.5 patch gonna fix so many things.)

01-05-2018, 02:05 AM
I would ask Trion to feedback to XL Games to upgrade the current pet gear tier to Erenor and the grade to Eternal.

Please don't encourage XL Games to force us to use boss drops as part of the crafting requirements.

Don't let our pet friends be stuck with just Mythic Delphinads.

01-05-2018, 02:08 AM
@Elorin the spellshift orb will cost 120g at general merchant in 4.5 (cause no one craft obsidian in korean due to the high price)

Q: Can we have as double kyrios days as days without cross server cause actually we can't play arena in our server (due to low number people).
Q: For be Title rank 5, did we need all titles
Q: Did titles not in the folio give experience ? (like the title in marketplace)

01-05-2018, 03:32 AM
@Titidu80 the new title in the marketplace (Legendary assassin) got the arcane grade and did give xp yes.

Q: The 3 titles (Windracer, Duke of Delivery and Never Fast Enough) from the Rockborne racing quests requires the "Fresh Cordial Sale" quest to be completed before you can access them.
To start this quest you need the "Fresh Cordial Advert" item, this item is only granted to your inventory once you obtain the Rampage C200.
Will this change in the future to also include the B200 and S200 or are these titles now exclusive to those who got it before and the owners of the Rampage C200?

01-05-2018, 06:19 AM
When we will get 4.5?
Why we get "image costumes"?
Are there planes to change the droprate from Aurorian Boxes? If there are Plans how can
we get enough silver to open all of em?
When comes Crosserver Arena back?
Why is there no Archeagewiki for new Players from Trion?
Are there Plans to interact with the community or stille hide and do nothing?
German Gems are still in Korean when will u fix this?

01-05-2018, 06:36 AM
It seems that 4.0 completely changed the way cargo is both priced for purchase as well as the way the payout values are calculated. Could you please explain how this functions now?

Has there been any talk internally, or with XL, about changing the cargo family quest so that the charcoal system can actually function for everyone and not just those with the most alts?

01-05-2018, 06:40 AM
When we get a Fresh Start Server and will it be like the Korean Fresh Startserver orchidna?

01-05-2018, 07:16 AM
Can we get a recipe to convert odd number of old gale and earth fine lunarite into current versions?

Right now if I try to convert either with less than 10 it's states I need 100 of that exact type.

01-05-2018, 07:21 AM
What fresh start server news do you have for us?

01-05-2018, 07:54 AM
Hello all,

Q: is there a way to convert "old" lunagems into the materials/cost they had?

Help about this would be apreciated,

other questions (like everyone else),
fireglow lunarite drop rate? --> im not grinding enough?! ^-^
charcoal? --> what is that? -.-

Keep up.
(And we are waiting in EANNA for a stream)

01-05-2018, 08:05 AM
Q: Where is our compensation
Q: How does trion plan to help existing low gear score players
Q: How long until we get changes sooner, rather than months from now, ie: crate drop rate, obsidian crafting costs+rng costs

01-05-2018, 08:11 AM
When will we get Fresh Start server?

Yesterday, I tried to play archeage, but 1 message in faction chat in like 10 minutes made me cry.

01-05-2018, 08:15 AM
The people have spoken. Glad to hear it's not just me. Enjoy the stream, I look forward to hearing about the responses to all these very relevant questions.

01-05-2018, 08:28 AM
Q: Is it possible to get some of the changes in 4.5 earlier then the normal timeframe. Especially the new crafting way of Equipment
Reason is the fault they made with 4.0 in the obsidian way. I think this could be very important for us.

01-05-2018, 08:54 AM
hello and happy new year!
when will we get the compensation for DDOs? we are waiting for it for quite a while now...

01-05-2018, 09:14 AM
Like many students and other players that have been out of town during the holidays, doing the homecoming warrior's challenge quest has not been an option. I've been able to log in twice since Christmas eve.

My question is when can I purchase for 1 gold an Eternal Loyalty Gear Ticket for a set of Soulforged gear instead of the homecoming warrior's gear? At least Soulforged has gems and doesn't require players to be active during Christmas break. Not asking for better than what you gave out for 3.5, just what you gave for 3.5.

It's not too late for some aspects of 4.0 to suck less that isn't in XL's hands.

01-05-2018, 11:20 AM
Has a response been received from XL in relation to the bait worm drop rate? 4.0 patch notes indicated drop rate was INCREASED, but PTS and live servers have a DECREASED drop rate.

Tinen posted shortly after 4.0 was release:

Bait Worm drop rates from compost have decreased when patch notes say they should have increased. This is most likely due to a discrepancy between our version and the Korean version of the game, where they previously had a much lower rate than we did. However, we will still be discussing this with the team to see if the change was intended.

Has XL responded?

01-05-2018, 11:26 AM
i hope we will get some answer :

Metallic Auroran Crate & Lost Metallic Crate drop rate (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?335085-Metallic-Auroran-Crate-amp-Lost-Metallic-Crate-BUGGED-or-INTENDED!-!)

RIP cross arenas? O.o (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?335640-RIP-cross-arenas-O.o)

also are you gonna extend that event for kyrios medals ?:

As an added BONUS, enjoy Double Vocation Points, Honor Points, and Kyrios Badges every weekend (Sat/Sun UTC) from now until Jan 10.

This bonus will also be active from Dec 13 – 17 to celebrate the release of 4.0, as well as Jan 6 – 10 to end the promotion with a bang.

01-05-2018, 11:51 AM
Q: Can you guys request XL to allow us to have all dailies auto-unlock? and not require us to open them at reset everyday?
I don't know a situation where a player would not want these rewards.
For example, today if you kill a world before re-opening the daily you don't get your guild daily reward.

Q: The Big letter from Celestrata stated that will be getting a lot more direct communication from XL and so far we haven't heard a peep?
