Alright stop, calibrate and listen, ARCHEPASS is back with some brand-new additions. Quests have been altered to be more manageable. Less grindy and more enjoyment should be coming from the new Season 2 Archepass. 

EU server downtime for the patch will start at 9:00 UTC. NA servers, 8:00 PST. The details don’t strictly say AM or PM, but we can assume AM. This should be done by the time you read this.

Archeage Unchained is having a sale for the Archeage Unchained Packs. January 23rd through February 23rd select packs will be 30% off.  

Changes to the pass quests are as follows:

  • “Socket a Lunagem” has been erased, no longer a quest roll
  • Quests such as “Earn 2000/4000 Vocation/Honor” has been reduced down to earn 500/1000
  • Kill 20 World Bosses quest has been dropped down to Kill 10 World Bosses, as this is a much more manageable task for a week of casual gameplay
  • Killing members of the other faction quests have been reduced to 10% of the previous quests. Instead of “kill 100 members of the hostile faction”, the requirement will be “kill 10”. This will alleviate the struggles for classes that have chosen support roles such as tanks and healers (and for those of us who are trash at PVP)
  • Use 2000/4000 labor quests have been reduced down to 500/1000
  • Added opening x amount of coin purse quests 
  • Earn EXP quests have been dropped down between 10,000-50,000 (There is no information as to whether or not they earn 1 million EXP is still in a quest)

For a full list of details, you can find the patch notes for the Archepass here.

Per the Archeage Unchained Discord, some additional bug fixes will be included in this patch: 

  1. Improvements made to help alleviate latency caused by large-scale events 
  2. Harpoon Skills should no longer knock players off the Cargo Ship
  3. Quest text next button (AKA F key) is no longer bugged, rendering it inactive
  4. The Korean Symbol that was appearing on the character select screen next to the exiled characters has been removed 
  5. Fixed the missing reputation icon that was previously missing
  6. Fixed the Exile Support Bundle, no longer requires Timewinder Tokens that are not in the game currently
