    Patch Notes - Akasch Invasion





    The Akasch Invasion has begun! A brand-new zone has opened up for all adventurers - the Ipnya Ridge. Filled with ruins, this zone represents not only what was but what's to come. Travel to the Ipnya Ridge through a narrow path in Mysthrane Gorge, but tread carefully, as danger awaits around every turn.

    Utilize brand-new weapons, become more powerful, and learn more about the Akasch and their plans. These and more in the latest update to ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained.



    The land that is known as home to the Ipnya has finally opened from Mysthrane Gorge - the Ipnya Ridge. This Temperate and Tropical land served as the hub city of the Ipnya before their magic faded and their city disappeared. It's said that ruins can be seen of what once was, but among these ruins is what appears to be newly built Akasch structures, meaning only one thing: Nehliya was not the only Akasch presence that has surpassed through the barrier.
    The enemy presence in this area is quite strong, it's recommended that adventurers are between Ancestral Level 30-32 to assist in clearing out any hostile presence within the Ipnya Ridge. The presence of the Akasch is not to be taken lightly, be prepared for anything, especially for a fight.


    Brace yourself for a fight like never before. The Akasch have broken through the seal keeping them in their alternate dimension and are invading the Ipnya Ridge! The Akasch Invasion has begun, it's your chance to fight back and save Erenor. Without careful coordination, the Akasch will win and their presence will be detrimental to all. Please keep in mind, there is a limited number of faction members that can be present during the Akasch Invasion as well, so make way for your strongest!

    ○ The Akasch Invasion will occur every Monday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30PM UTC for EU and 2:30AM PDT for NA during Peace in the Ipnya Ridge and lasts 40 minutes.
    ○ When the Akasch Invasion begins, World Gates will appear in Marianople, Austera, and Growlgate to allow all players to join the fray and a scoreboard will be displayed when arriving in Ipnya Ridge.
    ○ The beginning of the Akasch Invasion will be foretold with various noticeable changes throughout the Ipnya Ridge regions and the early formings of a Dimensional Rift.
    ○ Once the Akasch breakthrough, you will need to defeat the Akasch by reaching a total of 15,000 points before the Akasch take over the Ipnya Ridge. The first to reach the goal will be the winner.
    ○ Players can grant points by:
    • Completing Akasch Invasion Quests, grants 3 Points
    • Killing Akasch Monsters during the invasion, grants 180 points.
    ○ The Akasch will gain points too, depending on the amount of control within regions as well as defeating players. Akasch will earn points when:
    • Defeating a player, the Akasch faction will be granted +5 points
    • Claiming an area, the Akasch faction will gain +6 points for every 5 seconds for 1 minute.
    • For every minute after the Akasch claims an area, their points gained is increased by 2 per second.
    ○ If the players successfully defend against the Akasch Invasion, an Invasion Victory Merchant will spawn in the Cragtear Scars that will trade unique items for Akasch Tokens and a buff will be provided to all players in the Ipnya Ridge until the next Akasch Invasion.
    ○ If the players fail to defend against the Akasch, a debuff will be placed on all players in the Ipnya Ridge and their influence will make powerful world bosses such as the Kraken, Charybdis, Leviathan, the Black Dragon, and Nehliya even stronger until the next Akasch Invasion. Additionally, the Invasion Victory Merchant will not spawn.
    ○ In the event there is a draw, no effects will take place.
    ○ 125 Nuia, 125 Haranya, and 50 Pirates can participate in the Akasch Invasion at once.

    Akasch Invasion Quests

    Vice-Captain Minos has a request for you - there is an Akasch Invasion ahead and it needs to be handled swiftly! Once Peace falls upon the Ipnya Ridge on Monday, Friday, and Saturday at 9:30 PM server time, the Akasch will begin their attack. Complete 17 new quests during the Akasch Invasion and be rewarded with Akasch Token Crates and put 3 points towards the scoreboard for each quest completed. These Akasch Invasion quests begin with talking to Vice-Captain Minos at the Ethereal Haven or Leika, Marrak, and Galiora in the Crimson Watch Camps around the Ipnya Ridge!

    Akasch Token Merchants

    Two new types of Merchants now inhabit Erenor that exchange useful items for Akasch Tokens. Akasch Tokens can be acquired from defeating monsters within the Ipnya Ridge, completing Akasch Invasion quests, defeating Scrying Eyes, and examining Arcane Spheres during the Akasch Invasion.
    The Akasch Token Merchant Jerri resides inside the Ethereal Haven. Players can purchase each item available by the Akasch Token Merchants once per day, and this cooldown resets at midnight server time. Jerri offers the following items:


    The Invasion Victory Merchant Laffi is summoned after defeating the Akasch Invasion and only has 3 items of the items listed. Only one item can be purchased per day like the main base Akasch Token Merchants and the cooldown resets at Midnight server time. The merchant has the potential to offer the following items and is located in the Cragtear Scars:




    Ipnysh Wardens Ardios and Lauryla have sensed something much bigger than Nehliya is coming after her emergence. With a belief that other Ipnysh Wardens may be present, they invite you to the Ipnya Ridge in search of other Wardens. Convinced a new war is in Erenor's immediate future, more warriors will need to be assembled. A new era is coming, Nehliya was only the beginning.

    Learn more about the Ipnya, the Akasch, and what lies ahead in the latest Main Story Quests! This questline dives in-depth to the past and what may be coming in the future in the form of 37 Main Story Quests! Your journey begins with Ardios at the Crimson Watch Camp within Mysthrane Gorge and requires that you have completed the Main Story Quests within Mysthrane Gorge to begin.


    Sudden tremors in Karkasse Ridgelands are causing great damage to the local towns and the peaceful Brownscale Wyrkim tribe seems to suffer from hallucinations that are turning them violent. While most organizations already accepted these changes as a simple case of unpredictable beasts showing their true nature, some long-term residents and scholars fear a much greater threat might be at work. Assist Estio of the Crimson Watch, Historian Artena, and Researcher Aranbot on their journey to reveal the truth behind these unusual changes and dive deeper into the lore of the ancient Nuon race, which is rumored to have vanished shortly after their victory against the mighty dragons that once roamed these lands.

    The chronicle “The Nuon Dragon War” introduces 41 new quests, which can be unlocked via the Chronicle Quests UI (Shift+L) and rewards a unique title for those who follow the story to the end. After unlocking the chronicle, Vice-Captain Armas will be ready to brief you on your first task at the Crimson Watch Camp in Reedwind.


    The Gunslinger Skillset has arrived. This skillset utilizes ranged weapons to damage from afar and can utilize the brand-new Rifle weapons. This skillset can be combined with other skillsets to create 66 brand-new classes! This skillset comes with 11 active skills, 6 passives, and combo actions to keep your adrenaline built and your enemies punished.

    Please note: To utilize this skillset on ArcheAge: Unchained you will need to use the Gunslinger Tome found in the Akasch Invasion Packs.

    Sunglow Lunagem Additions

    ○ Added new Sunglow Lunagems for Gunslinger:


    ○ Added Sunglow Lunagem Carver: Collateral Damage
    • Converts any of the socketed Sunglow Lunagems into a Sunglow Lunagem: Collateral Damage


    A new system to further enhance your character has been added - the Ipnysh Artifact system. This system allows players level 50 and above to enhance their Character Equipment Slots. To access the Ipnysh Artifact UI, open the Character info window (C) and click on the Ipnysh Artifact button in the top right.

    Enhancing Equipment Slots

    To begin enhancing, select any equipment slot to open the Ipnysh Artifact window. This UI will display the slot's attribute type, the experience required to level the slot up, and the effects that can be gained in the process. At the bottom of this UI, there is a dropdown menu for the materials that you can use to begin enhancing the slot. If the material's attribute matches the slot's attribute, 100 XP will be granted. If the material's attribute doesn't match, it will only grant 45 XP towards the enhancement. Once the slot is enhanced, it will affect any equipment placed within that slot such as increasing gear score and the equipment's stats. The effectiveness of the enhancement depends on the type of equipment, but the effect will always be displayed in the tooltip of your equipped item.

    Various Materials have been added to aid in the enhancement of equipment slots. The following materials can be purchased for 70 Akasch Tokens at the Akasch Token Merchant:


    Using a Demigod Essence increases the synthesis XP gained and decreases the gold consumed in the enhancement process. The Demigod Essence can only be used if the attribute type matches the enhancement material and can be crafted at the Territory Crafting Workbench using 100 Radiant Hiram Infusions.

    When an Equipment Slot's XP bar reaches 100%, the button on the right is activated allowing players to upgrade to the next level. Upgrading equipment slot levels requires the proper rank of Ewan's Rune. While some Ewan's Runes can be purchased from Akasch Token Merchants, they can also be crafted using Serpent Scales that drop from the monsters within Ipnya Ridge and the previous Rank of Ewan's Rune.


    Artifact Effects

    After reaching a high enough slot level, a random stat will be granted from a list of artifact effects. To view the full list of available stats, click the magnifying glass in the Ipnysh Artifact UI. In the event an undesirable effect is obtained, it can be changed to a randomly selected alternate stat from the list, using a Bound Serendipity Stone. There is no limit to how many times the effect can be changed, but once the button is clicked, the action can't be reversed.

    Set Effects

    Unlock additional benefits after upgrading multiple equipment slots with the Set Effects! After opening the Ipnysh Artifact UI, the button in the top center will grant you access to the Set Effect UI. Set Effects can be unlocked by reaching a certain level with all slot types.

    Rank 1: 12 Ipnysh Artifact Weapon Levels, 28 Ipnysh Artifact Armor Levels, and 12 Ipnysh Artifact Accessory Levels +2000 Max Health and +1000 Max Mana
    Rank 2: 21 Ipnysh Artifact Weapon Levels, 49 Ipnysh Artifact Armor Levels, and 18 Ipnysh Artifact Accessory Levels +750 Physical Defense and +750 Magic Defense
    Rank 3: 30 Ipnysh Artifact Weapon Levels, 70 Ipnysh Artifact Armor Levels, and 24 Ipnysh Artifact Accessory Levels +500 Toughness and +200 Resilience

    The Set Effects, unlike the Artifact Effects, cannot be replaced or changed and can be stacked.


    The foes within Erenor have become stronger and more merciless. In an effort to defend the lands against the Akasch, the Ancestral Level cap has been increased for all players. The maximum Ancestral Level has increased to 70, so players can achieve more power than ever before. Use your improved attributes to take the fight to the Akasch and save Erenor!

    Additionally, the following balance changes were made to gear:
    ○ Improved the synthesis effects of 2-handed weapons
    ○ Slightly improved the synthesis effects of Brilliant Erenor Equipment
    ○ Added a changeable synthesis effect to certain Erenor Equipment
    ○ Increased all Attack and Healing power of 2-handed weapons


    The following adjustments have been made to Ships and their components:
    ○ Turtlecraft
    • The maximum amount of passengers has been increased from 20 > 30 players
    • The cooldown of Phase Shift has been decreased from 30 sec. > 20 sec.
    • Roof Damage now deals 5% Damage per second as opposed to 1000 Fixed Damage.

    A brand-new equalized arena has arrived: Halcyona Skirmish. Halcyona Skirmish will be available for a limited time during the day and can only be entered 5 times a day by characters level 30 and above. All participants will have equalized skills and equipment levels in the instance. All pre-existing buffs and debuffs will be disabled inside this arena and return to you when you go back to Erenor. If your character has the following debuffs, you won't be able to enter the arena: Trial-related debuffs, Prisoner, and Overburdened. The minimum participant number is 20 while the maximum participant number is 50. The more, the deadlier. The Top 10 players will be crowned the winners.

    Before the battle begins, there will be a Standby phase and during this phase, all participants will be in stealth and can move around the map freely. During the same phase, all participants will choose one of the equipment options given to them. Once the Standby phase ends, the battle begins in 60 seconds.

    During the arena match, you will be able to use Arena Potions and with each PvP kill, you will gain stacks of arena buffs which increases your Arena Potion use by +1. If a participant is killed, the final ranking is calculated based on the number of remaining survivors at the moment. The arena ends when there is only one survivor left! When down/defeated, the character's XP and equipment durability are not affected. Additionally, all chat options will be disabled within the Arena, the only thing talking will be your weapon.

    To win in this deadly arena, you must survive until the very and be the last one standing. There are no teams, no partnerships. Every moving thing in the area is your enemy. This is the survival of the fittest! Battle in this arena lasts only for 15 minutes and the arena will have an area debuff named Grudge Veil. As the timer counts down, this debuff will periodically reduce the area in the arena and if you stay in the Grudge Veil zone, you are going to take significant damage. If you don't move quickly and be careful, you will meet your great demise sooner than you thought!

    In the event players try to go against the nature of this Arena by banding together, they will be branded a coward, punished severely, and called out to everyone within the instance. Punishments include the removal of any bonus benefits, inability to use potions, summoning your mount, and more.

    You cannot use Teleport Books and other personal items in the arena. Only the arena glider and mount provided can be used.

    Participants will find Forgotten Treasure Chests scattered across the map. These chests can grant one of the following effects:

    ○ Basic Effects - Each stack of the buff grants effects (up to 10 times):
    • All Attacks and Healing Power +3% / Attack Speed +55 / Cast Time -5%
    ○ Random Effects - One random effect from the following is granted:
    • Grants stealth for 40 seconds / Move Speed +50%
    • Increases all Attacks and Healing Power +20% for 3 minutes.
    • Arena exclusive potions +1
    • Grants an area exclusive glider: Last Flame.
    • Grants an area exclusive mount, Lost Halcyona Steed.




    A brand new way to compete against other people from your faction. Just form your parties and duel!

    To request a Party Duel, you must form a party and find another party to duel against. The Party Duel function is available only if players are in a Peace zone, in their faction controlled zone or in a festival zone. Perfect places for a friendly competition! Party Duel requests can only be requested or accepted by party leaders. Once the request is sent and accepted, a duel flag spawns in the middle of the participants and the Party Duel begins after a 3 seconds countdown. If anyone leaves the party or the party is disbanded, the duel gets canceled. After the Party Duel begins, the two parties can attack each other.

    You can't request a Party Duel if you or your opponent(s) is not in a Party or if anyone is in combat. Also, if the party leader or the members of the party are far away from the Party Duel range, it can't be requested or accepted. During the duel, a Party can be converted to a Raid.

    Participants can be kicked or excluded from the Party Duel in such cases as; leaving the duel area, being offline, taking damage that drops a duel participant's health below 0. Once a participant is kicked or excluded from the duel, they can't rejoin the duel and have to wait until the current one ends to rejoin.

    The Party Duel ends when all members of at least one Party are defeated. If the combat lasts for too long, it ends with a draw.


    The Akasch Invasion update brings another function that could help you shorten your travel times! With the new Hero Respawn Point feature, your faction will be able to use another Respawn Point in a zone.

    For this new Respawn Spot to be activated, a faction hero needs to interact with a Nui Priestess. This can only be done once per zone for 15 minutes. Once a Hero Respawn Spot is activated, the owner faction's flag will be hung. Your faction hero can also claim one of the hostile faction's respawn spots in the zone. In this case, the other faction won't be able to use this point until it's taken back. So be careful, they might come for it!

    A Hero Respawn Spots may be unavailable in such cases as:
    ○ If a zone does not have 2 or more respawn points assigned for a faction.
    ○ If a faction has two respawn points in a zone, and one of them is claimed as a Hero Respawn Spot by another faction, the first faction’s only remaining respawn point cannot be claimed as Hero Respawn Spot.
    ○ Two factions can’t claim the same respawn point as their Hero Respawn Point.
    ○ Conflict/War time respawn points assigned to each faction can’t be claimed as a Hero Respawn Spot. (Previously claimed respawn spots before Conflict/War will be removed as the zone cycle updates.)
    ○ If a zone is in festival mode.
    ○ If a zone has an on-going entry restriction.
    ○ If a zone is under siege.

    The number of attempts to activate a respawn spot changes according to each Hero Rank. Heroes from a weaker faction have 2x more attempts than heroes in a stronger faction. These weekly attempts reset every Sunday at midnight server time.

    When your character dies, you will see a popup window displaying two options: While one is will be the default option, the other option will be your faction's currently active Hero Respawn Spot. If you respawn at a Hero Respawn Spot, you don't get the "Rebirth Trauma" debuff and receive a better Nui's Consolation buff. The regular and the special respawn share the same cooldown of 300 seconds.


    Zones with available Hero Respawn Spots:




    The Rotten Specialties Merchant is a brand-new NPC that buys low-profit specialties that have been abandoned. They can be found in both Nuia and Haranya, but only one appears per region at a time. Helio travels through Nuia while Sherman will travel throughout Haranya.
