Crafting Change26 September 2017 (23:45) by Gamemaster Ninja
Virtually all crafting recipes now will require 1 Archlight Token to craft, this does not scale, IE late game crafting also only receives 1 archlight token, this is to further encourage crafting higher gear and less spam crafting low gear. All baseline recipes (Ingots and Leathers) Now require 5x the materials but give you 5x the amount. Example - Iron ingots before required 2 iron ore, now you make 5 iron ingots for 10 ore. They give 500% the experience as well. This is partially to speed up crafting, but also so the 1 token isn't as many per base craft.
We have added the ability to trade Old Fake Archlight Keys for their new correct Broken Archlight Keys at blacksmithing. Also we have added smithing 5 Brokens Keys into 1 Key, and smithing 3 Legendary Key Fragments to a Legendary Key
You can now turn 20 skill potions into 1 strong skill potion with Alchemy
Booster Packs + 9.3.0 Teaser26 September 2017 (02:04) by Gamemaster Ninja
Archlight Online's Second Anniversary
We have been getting asked since last christmas when we will add in something like bundles again, so we have brought in 3 different tiers of Booster Packs. We thought Archlights Second Anniversary would be the perfect time to bring that in. For those of you who dont know, we recently passed our Second Anniversary of our Archlight Launch 2 years ago (August 10th) (This is not including the 1.5 months of our first beta). We've come a long way and are happy to say we've had 99.98% uptime over those 2 years. And 99.98% of our days developing on Archlight ;). It has Been quite a ride, we're all very excited to see where we are in another 2 years! This backpack will not be added to the promotion shop, and you will receive this back each era, we want this to remain something exclusive to those who we're around for our second anniversary! This was custom sprited by our talented sprited Erick Etchebeur. This Anniversary Backpack will come free with every Dragon Booster Pack.
Our 2nd Anniversary Backpack has the following stats:
+21 Skill Value
3% Monster Essence Find
Many have been asking Era after Era for us to bring back Bundles, so we have finally brought them back as Booster Packs. You can now purchase Three different Booster Packs from the Donate Tab (Select Booster Packs instead of Donation Points). We have released 3 different tiers of Booster Packs including -
Gold Booster Pack
Mythril Booster Pack
Dragon Booster Pack.
Patch 9.3.0 Teaser (Scholomance Monastary will be released in 9.4.0 Patch, we have instead done 5 new Raid Worlds for 9.3.0)

We will also be adding other unique things to each of our other crafting and gathering systems!
