Latest Producer's Letter Reveals Choice Nuggets of Info

Latest Producer's Letter Reveals Choice Nuggets of Info - MMORPG.com

ArcheAge Producer Merv Lee Kwai has posted a lengthy note on the game site to give players a bit of a heads up about what is coming in both the immediate and more distant futures. Firstly, however, he reviews all that has happened with ArcheAge since 2015 began and it's a pretty impressive list, with a major nod going out to players for being agents of change in the game.

Beginning next week, players can look forward to seeing the first information about player-crafted submarines, a significant upgrade to the glider system and, in August, the Blue Salt Festival will arrive in game.

Further along the road, devs have big plans for a new Hero System where players can nominate faction members to rise to the political rank of Hero. In addition, a upgrades are coming to housing, build expeditions will be announced, pet and mout armor systems will be upgraded alongside a new level cap of 55, and much, much more.

In addition, Kwai takes time to address some significant areas of concern that have been much discussed among players in the AA community. Among other things, he brings up botting, RNG, exploits, live and new servers.

We’re also exploring some of the ArcheAge systems that can feel the most punishing at times and seeing where we can remove pain points. Some of this has to do with improbable amounts of RNG or outright unforgiving systems like slotting lunagems. While we want to retain some challenge, we’re looking to ease the effort required to repeatedly participate and add alternative methods of progression. The best example here is the rarity of Auroria Cloaks. While it’s possible in the future the drop rate may be improved , our goal was to provide an alternative method to work toward cloaks with similar stats. The result is the introduction of a new line of cloaks that will be available in the 2.0 release as rewards from the upcoming guild contribution system. This same methodology is being applied to other concerns such as Black Pearl rarity, Item Salvaging, and itemization choices.
