v4.0 Now Named 'Maelstrom', Set to Launch December 6th

v4.0 Now Named 'Maelstrom', Set to Launch December 6th - MMORPG.com

The next major ArcheAge update is v4.0. We now know that it is called "Maelstrom" and will be launching in both North America and Europe on December 6th. Anchoring the update are a number of improvements and additional features including a reworked Gem system, an open world raid finder, updates to crafting and the addition of Bloodsalt Bay, a naval PvP arena.

Bloodsalt bay is a 20-player battleground taking place fully aboard ships with crews of five. The battleground features fights with sea creatures and monsters as well as against other players as teams work to claim victory. 

The Raid Recruitment Board allows players to post adverts for group adventures to allow others to join up for open world mayhem.

The Lunagem system has been greatly improved and simplified as well, reducing random chance when improving gear through adding gems. The process of obtaining desired gem types has also been streamlined, making for a more progress-focused gem experience. Crafting will see key improvements as well, as a new crafting quest line teaches less experienced players several ways to dive into the crafting system. A new crafting interface will also let players discover the range of items they can create and allows for easier searching. Specialize in one skill or several; the choice is yours!

You can learn more about Maelstrom on the ArcheAge site.
