NA Season 3 Launch

14 September 2019 (21:09) by Admin Knighter


Archlight North America Season 3 Will Launch October 4th at 10:00am PST
It will include the Massive New Gorgon Sisters Expansion (New Endgame Content), Class Balancing, Archlight Battlegrounds & Arenas. It's no surprise to anyone our community has grown extensively over this last year, from the NA Server being a huge success, and our latest EU Season nearly doubling the previous EU season, we have had to significantly grow our team in not only personnel, but the quality in our output and professionalism in deadlines over the last 2 months. 
We are very excited for everyone to see what we've put together and why this NA Season will break all past records like our most recent EU & NA Seasons have. Teasers will start being posted on the 21st following up to the launch of the New Season.

Patch Notes August 3rd

Map
Fixed a bunch of unwalkable tiles on the new Cake Islands (Starting on the West side should no longer be a problem)
Ability to place seeds in guildhalls by clicking on the fence
A lot of miscellaneous fixes

Server
We have added a new item to the Anniversary Reward Trader called Anniversary Soulbound Remover. This item can be used to remove the soulbound on any but **only** anniversary items obtained from Cake Boxes. Many mentioned they'd like to have the ability to choose to remove the soulbound even if for a price. Unfortunately, we need them to be soulbound to avoid MC abuse.
Cake Mount has been changed from a T3 > T4 Skill Mount, many mentioned it was incredibly weak for an 8 LAT mount.
Cupcake Relic now is a flat 10% after all other boosts factored in, rather than base boost, as it was boosting most people around 2-2.5% total rather than the intended 10% overall
Nerfed PvP damage % amplication for Pyroblast (It was proc'ing all 5 times in PvP, so we split the % by 5)
Demand an Opponent to reduce a monster's threat (5%)
You can now see the amount of health/mana an item regenerates by looking at it (i.e. minor oblation, tree of life trinket)
Fixed an issue where Cupcake and Cake Sweet table turned into a water tile
Cakes will now be properly removed after a succesful throw
Update stats boosts description for Quests (You get +10 stats and not +10%)
Gunslingers are no longer able to utilize the Summon Creature(utevo res) spell
Some fixes to the Crematorium Quest (CoM)

Patch Notes August 2nd

Anniversary Events & More!
Every Player on Archlight NA & EU will be receiving 1 month Free Premium!!
All Bounty Cards are 50% off for the 2 weeks of our Anniversary!
Every player will receive Free Bounty Cards everyday for logging in!

We will have 2 new LAT items available for our 4th Anniversary, both of these will be heirloom rewards, meaning when purchased from the NPC, you will receive them back at the start of every season automatically! These are not cross-server however, but are available on either server you wish! These will be the only 2 things not obtained from the ingame event!

Cake Mount 


Tier 3 Skill Mount giving the user a passive +8 to their primary skill

Cupcake Relic


Having this relic in your backpack will increase your Self Healing from Spells, Potions, Rune Emblems and any Healing Received by 10%. Essentially it is a restoration relic equivalent to +10%.

Cake Eating Event

A new event coming to Archlight, this event however is a for a single user! Based on a random interval, players will have a chance to find a !cake essence. To be clear, this essence is not like normal essences, essence find does not increase your chance at finding these, every player has the same chance to obtain them! These will randomly appear anytime your stamina is being drained, whether in a dungeon, quest, or just hunting! Once obtained, you can store up to 5 !cake uses, to use at a later time (as you must be in a safe zone to use them).
[Common] Cake Goblin

Carries 1 Cake Box 

[Uncommon] Cake Slime

Carries 2 Cake Boxes 

[Semi-Rare] Cake Youngling

Carries 3 Cake Boxes 

[Rare] Cake Raider

Carries 4 Cake Boxes 

[Very Rare] Cake Lord

Carries 4 Cake Boxes & 1 Deluxe Box 

[Ultra Rare] Pinyata

Carries 7 Cake Boxes, 2 Deluxe Boxes & 1 Extravagent Box 

When used, you are teleported to a giant cake, where you have 60 seconds to eat as much cake as possible! Each cake tile will be randomly pre-generated to have a chance to have a monster under it! Based on the monster, you will receive cake boxes, either simple, deluxe or extravagent cake boxes! Deluxe and Extravagent only being found in the rare creatures that can be discovered! Once the 60 seconds are over, you are teleported out of the cake island and can open your boxes for 1 of 15 different rewards! These rewards include the following - and they're pretty epic!

[Common] Fireworks - Shoot, kaboom

[Common] Cake - To throw at players, splats, and insults

[Common] Cookies - Increase exp by 10% for 15 minutes

[Semi-Uncommon] Cake Tapestry - House Decoration

[Rare] Party Crab Companions (4 different colors) - Each give +1 to all stats
   

[Rare] Anniversary Tables - Collect up to 6 different Anniversary Feast Tables! These tables not only make great house decoration, matching seemlessly into eachother in any combination you desire! But they also can be used to obtain a 12 hour, +5 stat bonus! All tables will give the same ability to select one of any stat to give +5 to! You can have 3 of these tables stat bonuses active at one time, however they must be in different stats, these do not conflict with the Anniversary Cake Buff. All Tables have a 23 hour cooldown.



[Rare] Cake Cabinet - Gives +3% Essence Find for 23 hours.

[Very Rare] Anniversary Chocolate - Used for Chocolate Cake Mission

[Very Rare] Party Bear Companion - +3 to all stats


[Very Rare] 4th Anniversary Backpack - +5% Monster Essence Find, +22 Skills - When obtained, this item is added to your heirloom list and you will receive it back every season on that account.

[Very Rare] Party Bear Mount - Tier 3 Skill Mount - Gives +8 skill & 20 power


[Ultra Rare] Party Pikachu

Pikachu acts as a battery charger for all your energy spent! 20% of all energy you spend will be returned to you! This is done in sets of 10, but it adds, so anytime you spend 10 total energy you will get 2 (20%) given back. When obtained, this companion is added to your heirloom list and you will receive it back every season on that account.

Cake boxes obtained from the event & anything inside is soulbound to the owner to prevent MC abuse of this.

Deluxe boxes have no chance to drop Fireworks or Cakes, making them a higher chance at something rare.

Extravagent boxes guarantee something rare.

Cake Baking Missions!

Not only will all players have access to the cake eating event, but you can also take the portal in the depot to meet Amilea & Shannon! One will offer you the LAT items from the Anniversary, but the other, she will have two different missions to help her with! So get your oven mits on, and help prepare her two different style of cakes to obtain these two cosmetics!

Tier 4 Health & Mana outfit giving +1.5% max health & mana!

The Council of Marius Content Released on NA & EU!
4 New Largescale Quests, 5 New Boss Fights each with their own mechanics, Over half a dozen missions, 4 new sets of equipment, house furnitures and more. The Council of Marius Content is following a very similar design philosophy that we put into Shadows of the Ashen and we cannot wait to share it with you! 
The Council of Marius Content will be placed as a successor to Shadows of the Ashen content, and will have 4 new sets of equipment for players to access. Additionally, through missions and quests, players will be able to obtain special furnitures for their house, that not only boast pure royalty to the house itself, but also can be used to temporarily increase the owners stats. We have placed it directly after The Shadows of the Ashen content in quest progression as we want virtually everyone to be able to experience this content and what it has to offer!
