Name Changes are BACK!

Adventurers,

You may have noticed that a familiar service has returned! Please welcome back Character Name Changes to the fold, joining their Character Server Transfer bretheren.

If you've been interested in changing your character's name, then don't hesitate. Get your name changed for 1,400 today by visiting the Glyph Shop and clicking on the Name Change service button.

Also, be aware that Name Changes and Character Transfers share a 30-day cooldown with one another. Once you choose one, you will be locked out of both for 30 days.

Happy name-changing!

Note to Daru: Pirates are not cannonball-proof — ArcheDelivery Event Update

Greetings Adventurers (or, in this case, "Arrrrr, ya saucy seadogs," as this goes out to the Pirate-folk amongst us),

We're happy to let you know that we've gotten in contact with the Daru Courier Guild, the masterminds behind the recent ArcheDelivery event. A few of the Pirate-folk mentioned to us that their chosen supply point below the Ezi's Lights of Diamond Shores was not so well-chosen. Apparently the Daru were under the strange belief that Pirates were immune to cannonballs being shot at their faces, citing the love of gunpowder that most Pirates demonstrate on a daily basis. The Daru are truly an odd-folk.

We've gotten the Daru to temporarily relocate their trading spots to the Crimson Watch Camp in Diamond Shores, and we encourage you seafarin' folk to visit them there to join the ArcheDelivery event.

There will be a game update in the future to permanently fix this event so the Pirate Faction can participate. But, until then, just visit the new home of the Daru Courier! (And the Daru apologize for any permanent injuries inflicted by the Pioneer Cannons.)

Sincerely,
The ArcheAge Team

The Character Transfer Service has returned!


The wait is finally over! The last preparations are made, and we are excited to let all of you know that Transfers between Legacy servers is BACK!

As before, the Character Transfer service will only work for characters transferring between Legacy Servers. Transfers between Fresh Start Servers, or between a Fresh Start and Legacy server, will not be available at this time.

To celebrate the return of the service, all transfers will only be 1 credit a piece between February 16 and February 23! So if you’ve been itching to transfer to a new home, now’s a great time to relocate. But remember, all transfers will still come with some restrictions, and you can learn more about what you need to do before you transfer right here.

Important Note: If you intend to transfer, make sure you are fully logged out and remain completely logged out of the game until the transfer has been completed. (Not even logging back in to sit on server select!) If you do not remain logged out until the transfer has been completed, your transfer may encounter an error at this time. This known issue will be fixed with priority after the release of the service.

We hope you enjoy your new surroundings, wherever you travel!

Khrolan Runes ended early; have a Worker’s Compensation on us!

Adventurers,

We're aware that the Khrolan Runes ended a little earlier than intended this evening, so we want to make sure you get what's yours. In the coming days, we'll put together a new, 0 Credit pack on the Glyph Shop for a Bound Worker's Compensation: 1000 potion that you'll be able to claim on one of your characters. All accounts that logged in between February 7 and February 14 will be eligible for this pack.

We hope you're enjoying your travels throughout Erenor, and make sure to put the labor to good use!

Sincerely,
The ArcheAge Team

Star-crossed love… or simply double-crossed? The story of Princess Greeniette and Prince Yateo continues on Feb. 10!


Once known for their forbidden romance between the Greenman and Yata houses, new developments strike doubt into the legendary love of Prince Yateo and Princess Greeniette! Was Yateo only after Greeniette's inheritance all along? Does his heart belong to another? Will Greeniette enact her revenge or is it all part of a grand declaration of devotion from Prince Yateo? Find out this February between the 10th and the 21st!

Pledge Your Support to Princess Greeniette

This event runs between:
  • North American servers: 11:00pm PST, February 10th through 11:00pm PST, February 21st
  • European servers: 2:00am UTC, February 11th through 2:00am UTC, February 22nd
Speak with the bard Shaik in Skyfang village, Windscour, to hear the latest on Princess Greeniette's story and acquire a uniform to join her army. Characters must be level 40 or above to accept Shaik's daily lead-in quest.

Princess Greeniette appears three times per day south of Skyfang to play out her revenge on Prince Yateo through a three-stage rift event.
  • North American servers: 10:00am PST, 3:00pm PST, 10:00pm PST
  • European servers: 01:00 UTC, 13:00 UTC, 18:00 UTC
Each rift stage has a corresponding daily quest from Princess Greeniette that awards Honor and Vocation Points for completion! Reaching and completing the third stage daily quest from Greeniette also grants a Merit Badge.

Bringing revenge on Prince Yateo by completing the rift event also spawns a gift you can interact with to receive 1x Greenman Candy. This candy provides a 60 minute buff when eaten, boosting Evasion, Attack Speed, and reducing Casting Time.

Prince Yateo may be headed for confrontation with his lady love, but is this truly the end of their story together? Stay tuned...
