ArcheAge July 2018 Update: Official Patch Notes


The following release notes contain information about our latest major ArcheAge update: July 2018!

Visit the best of the community's art!
“So many artists, so little time! I just want to buy them all!”

In the ancient days, the city of Delphinad held the "Essenion" art contest held every year in order to promote their master artists. Now, so many years later, King Andrion II of Nuia and Queen Amarendra IV of Haranya have banded together to resurrect this tradition in the form of the Erenor Global Art Contest!

Visit Marianople or Austera between July 19 and August 2 with a character that's level 30 or higher to meet with the Blue Salt Brotherhood's artists, Vivalt and Mendelsson. Plus you can view OR purchase pieces of art made by ArcheAge players across the world! The pieces made by the finalists from North America and Europe, Korea, China, Russia, Japan, and Taiwan are all present and ready for YOU!

For our region, make sure to check out the following finalists:
  • Life Is A Beautiful Ride -- Kithira of Conviction
  • Itchy On A Rock -- Itchylily of Retribution
  • Sweet Sorrow -- Sirochan of Shatigon
  • Hauler Avalanche -- Erry of Tempest
  • Delphinad Ghost Ship: Hard Mode -- Silenthunter of Eanna

Use your Gilda Stars to purchase copies of the art for your home (and enriching the corresponding artist) and you'll be rewarded with Art Contest Coins. Taking some time to activate and view the pieces of art also can reward you with coins too!

Plus, if you're in the area at 8:00, 16:00, and 24:00 UTC for EU or 6:00 AM, 2:00 PM, and 10:00 PM PDT for NA, you can participate in the Cooperative Art quest and help draw a big collective portrait. Just talk to Art Dealer Stark before beginning your masterpiece!

For you participating artists: Kithira, Itchylily, Sirochan, Erry, and Silenthunter -- for each piece of art sold across the world, you'll receive 1 gold (up to a maximum of 10,000 gold). Your Artistry skill will also be boosted by 10,000 at the completion of the event to represent your accomplishments. Plus, the artist who sells the most portraits in the world (across all participants) will get another +10,000 Artistic skill! Make sure to thank the Blue Salt Brotherhood when you can!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Global Art Contest, and we're excited to announce the official winners soon!
