Feastival Festival
The fabled cooking festival that takes place outside of Veroe in Hasla will begin on 11/23 after maintenance and run until servers come down for the Revelation Update on 12/9. Players can undertake daily objectives to earn event tokens and ultimately purchase cooking themed weapon skins. More details will be provided about this event in future update notes. WARNING: If you eat your weapons, they probably won't work anymore.

Patron Benefit SUPER LOYALTY BONUS
The Daily Loyalty Token amount granted to ArcheAge Patrons through the Divine Clock has been temporarily increased. Between November 9th and December 8th patrons will earn 5 tokens per day upon login and 3 tokens each additional hour for a maximum of 14 tokens at 3 hours of play (5+3+3+3=14=yay). This bonus has been granted due to Loyalty Shop items changing with the upcoming Revelation update. We remain committed to our previous promise of providing enough loyalty to purchase an item before we remove it from the shop. 600+ token items will remain on the shop for Legacy servers only and the dates on which they will be removed will be announced in 2017.

Bug Fixes
  • Some Tier 7 Obsidian Weapons will now properly show their high grade weapon glow effects.
  • Housing placement issues in Sungold Fields have been resolved.
  • The system will now prevent stacking of the Territory Work Permit buff from the same zone.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented loot rules from working correctly when the loot master is kicked from a raid or party.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Stormduster glider to become de-summoned during turbulence instead of correctly flailing around uncontrollably.
  • Minor descriptive text adjustments (Heather Dye, Guild Mission: Colonizing Auroria Quest)
