Player-Created Works of Art & an Overhauled Fishing System Anchor July Update
The ArcheAge forum has a new post with the patch notes for the July update that includes some pretty awesome stuff. One of the coolest things is that players can now head to either Marianople or Austera to view some works of art created by other players. The best part is that these works can also be purchased and placed in player housing. Purchases are made with Gilda Stars and the artist benefits from every one sold.
In addition to the addition of the art show and sale, ArcheAge players can look forward to a revamped fishing system that features a trio of poles, an increase in the spawn rate of schools of fish. For aspiring sports fisherfolk, there is the upcoming Mirage Fishing Contest that runs every Saturday.
Lastly, for those into the crafting thing, Marketplace mounts can now be created using Manastorm Crystals.
New Manastorm Crystals are now available as drops from opening Locked Gold Chests and Shadow Invasion sub-bosses, which can be found as drops from World Bosses. These Crystals can be used to craft previously available Marketplace mounts, such as the Frost Dragon or Typhoon Drake, and armors like the Typhoon set completely free! Visit the Pet Accessory Workbench to see the full list.
There are also a number of things coming to the Fresh Start server including a new level 55 cap, Dwarf and Warborn races have been added and much more.
