Collect treasure, create elixirs, and hit the beach in June’s limited time events!

  Posted On   By   News & Announcements   Comments Off on Collect treasure, create elixirs, and hit the beach in June’s limited time events!

The Blue Salt Festival makes a triumphant return this month, all while alchemists can experiment with new potions and extra treasure hides at the bottom of the ocean!

The Blue Salt Festival: June 29 to July 19
Are you ready for some more fun on the sunny shores of Sanddeep? The Blue Salt Brotherhood is!

To begin the quest chain and teleport directly to the festival, speak to the Blue Salt Brotherhood member Jesse, available at Ezi’s Light in Austera, Ezna, and Diamond Shores. Once her quest is accepted, you’ll be provided with a Blue Salt Festival teleport scroll to get right to Sanddeep.

During this time, Sanddeep will be placed into Festival Law. If you’re new to these parts, Festival Law will prevent PvP attacks as if the area was in Peace, BUT you can still be attacked if your guild is fighting in a Dominion War. Be careful!

As per last year, explore the festival to find all of the quests and collect Blue Salt Festival Coins! Build gigantic sand sculptures, hunt gigantic sea monsters, contribute to Mendelsson and Vivalt’s paintings, eat baked chicken, and more!

Festival coins can be redeemed for Thirsty Worker’s Flask, Blue Salt Festival empty frame, Temporary Cogwheel Longboards, the Summer Festival Coin Stand, Temporary Thunder Dash, Temporary Timber Coupe, beach furniture, new sand sculptures by Vivalt and Mendelsohn for your home, and Baked Chicken to take with you on the road!

Riches from the Depths: June 29 to July 12
Thar’ be booty on the ocean floor, and it’s ready for the plunderin’! Starting with the June Update and continuing to 11:59 PM GMT on July 12, you can hunt special Castaway Treasure Chest in the Castaway Strait and northern Halcyona Gulf to earn gold and special items!

To begin this quest line, activate your extra Divine Clock icon in the lower left-hand corner of your screen. The quest will challenge you to acquire 1,000 Commerce proficiency and, when you can complete it, you will be rewarded with a Elite Trader Certificate.

To help complete the quest, sail around the Castaway Strait to find Castaway Treasure Chest that can be converted into trade packs. These crates can result in one of three rewards:
  • Common: Coin Chest worth 50 gold when sold to the Ocean Trader.
  • Rare: Golden Statue Fragment worth 300 gold when sold to the Ocean Trader.
  • Super Rare: Golden Treasure Chest worth 1000 gold when sold to the Ocean Trader.
Meanwhile, Elite Trader Certificate can be turned in to earn Bound Worker’s Compensation: 500 potions, Archeum Essence, Bound Tyrenos’s Index, Bound Majestic Trees, Bound Mining Drills, Lucky Points, and the Mini Farm Cart Décor.

Of course, as the Castaway Strait is a full naval PvP zone, you may want to be on your guard for pirates, rival factions, and thieves looking to steal your hard earned packs!

All in a Dayru’s Work: July 9 to July 19
Rounding out our series of events is a new limited time series of Daily quests focusing on the mysterious ancient Daru. Staring at 12:01 AM GMT on July 9, you’ll be able to acquire a new quest from the Divine Clock to utilize an ancient Daru relic.

Through Daru alchemy, you’ll be able to craft Honor Elixirs, Vocation Elixirs, and more! Plus, complete the quests “Potion Lessons” and “The Mystic Daru” 7 times to receive the new titles “Elixir Mixer” and “Friend of Daru” respectively.

These quests will be available until 11:59 PM GMT on July 19, so get them done while you can!

Brand new costume AND a furniture bonanza in this week’s Marketplace Update!

  Posted On   By   News & Announcements   Comments Off on Brand new costume AND a furniture bonanza in this week’s Marketplace Update!


Who is that masked stranger, that dark shadow of the night? Who is the one behind the black mask? Who is that mysterious SHADOW DARU? Well, it might just be you!

Join the ranks of the Joyful Homebuilder Society: Submit a photo of your home!

  Posted On   By   News & Announcements   Comments Off on Join the ranks of the Joyful Homebuilder Society: Submit a photo of your home!

My word! So many properties across Erenor, and yet so few of them display TRUE BEAUTY. Is there anyone who walks this green earth who can possibly satiate my desire for picturesque architecture?

Let me introduce myself, although I’m sure you’ve already recognized me from my eloquent quips and stunning appearance. I am the exquisite Rose Avonelle, the prime matriarch of Erenor’s most elite club of architects and home decorators – the Joyful Homebuilder’s Society, otherwise known as JHS.

We here in the JHS are looking for additional members. Well, I’m looking for additional members. The people who’ve been here, you see, are stuck in such mundane creative ruts. I’ve frankly seen more artistic talent from a mouse covered in paint walking across a canvas. How tawdry.

That’s where you adventurer types come in. I’ve seen the things you wear as you parade about Marianople and Austera, and some of you seem to show glimmers of artistic hope. (I won’t mention the many of you who resemble a drunk Daru swimming in an underwear drawer.) I’ve decided, in my infinite benevolence, to open up the latest Joyful Homebuilder’s Society contest to those in the adventuring community. I want to see what adventurers build for themselves, so I’ll need a photo of your favorite home.

I’ve been recently enthralled with the beauty and divine heat of the sun, so this contest’s theme will be “Summer Home.”

Here’s the direct details, for your records. Now get to work, chop chop!

Contest Duration
The contest begins on Friday, June 24 and ends on Friday, July 8, 2016. Winners will be chosen and announced on Friday, July 15 in our live stream and on our website.

Contest Theme
Rose Avonelle of the Joyful Homebuilder's Society has chosen “Summer Home” as the theme for this contest. Try to make your home photos embody the theme as much as possible!

Prizes
  • 10 winners, chosen by the ArcheAge team, will receive a full Archeum Ascension Pack (a $150 value!)
  • All entries will receive a participation reward of 50 Merit Badges!

Contest Guidelines
  • No photo manipulation software is allowed. You must submit raw, unaltered screenshots with your UI disabled. (See below for more.)
  • The house or land must be owned by you. The Joyful Homebuilder Society does not allow you to take photos of something you haven’t made; that would be uncouth. In order to demonstrate that you own the property, you must take a second screenshot that shows both your character name and the property details pane (shown by using the F key at a farm scarecrow or house plaque.) Please include this proof of ownership with your submission.
  • Your entry must be “safe for work” and will be disqualified or deleted if it is indecent in nature. As a rule of thumb: if you have to ask, it’s probably not permitted.
  • Your entry should embody the theme as much as possible.
  • Entries will be judged on creativity, adherence to the theme, and the composition of the screenshot.
  • Your entry cannot use content that is copyrighted or trademarked, including custom logos.
  • One entry per person, please! Submitting more than one entry will disqualify you.
  • To enter, post your entry as an attachment or linked image in our official entry thread.
  • Click here for the official rules for this screenshot contest.

To take a screenshot in ArcheAge:
  • Log into the game and hit CTRL+F12 to enter screenshot mode. In screenshot mode, you can re-orient the camera to get angles you’d never normally be able to achieve.
  • F9 saves a screenshot, and F12 removes your UI. You can rebind these options in the Options menu.
  • You can change Depth of Field and Blur using in-game commands, listed in the image below.
