As many players (including streamers/creators) have expressed, the Archepass as it currently stands is not enjoyable and does not flow with the natural player progression. The sheer amount of dailies is extremely time-consuming, stressful and (in my opinion) greatly hinders the sandbox "spirit" of Archeage.

BUT - I can offer a very simple change to the Archepass that I feel would create synergy with all aspects of Archeage gameplay.

Instead of having to complete missions to fill the Archepass gauge, change it so that the gauge is filled by spending labor points.
This way, whether you're crafting, gathering, opening coin-purses or upgrading your gear, anything you spend labor on will contribute to your Archepass progress.
This would greatly expand the level of freedom players have, allowing them to explore all that Archeage has to offer without feeling tied down to any one thing.
