Companions are a new system added to Archlight. Companions are pets that you can find, loot or purchase that will permanently increase a different aspect of your character. When the companion item is used, the buff is gained and the companion is added to your !companions list. These companions can be summoned one at a time (chosen from your list) but serve as only cosmetic when they are out. They are very fast, cannot attack, cannot tank, players walk over them instantly. They are purely to show off if you have a rare one or want something with you while hunting/chilling in depot :) More companions will be added every week~. The first wave of companions other than the 3 doorbuster one's will be released in the first patch (First Friday after release).

These three dragon companions will be available in the Age of Dracona Doorbusters

The green dragon companion will give you a permanent passive bonus of +1 to every stat (all 10 stat categories).

The ice dragon companion will give you a permanent passive bonus of +5% monster essence find.

The red dragon companion will give you a permanent passive bonus of +2 to every stat (all 10 stat categories).

Points Ressurection!

13 April 2017 (23:54) by Gamemaster Knighter

One crucial thing for Archlight is that through any Era, we ensure that every player knows every dollar they spend in support of our project will never be lost. We are proud that every single dollar donated for since our first launch in August 2015 is still in the account of the player who has purchased those points. And years from now it will remain as so. Additionally promotion tokens will be compensated based on points donated. What this means is even for the players who did not donate 80 euro donations but multiple smaller donations, you will receive promotion tokens for the thresholds you have donated for (REJOICE).

To prevent flooding of the market we, like in every era, give back points over a spread time. This helps even the playing field for all the new players on Day 1 especially. We have had the opportunity to test this 3 different ways now, and have decided on what we think is the best way for the new incoming player base and the returning one. Essentially, for every 1000 coins you get redeemed, you will receive a promotion token that can be redeemed in game for bonus rewards.

The time table that coins will be "resurrected" is shown down below! 

1 Hour Before Launch - 2000 Coins Unlocked + 2 Promotion Tokens!
48 Hours(2 Day) After Launch - 3000 Coins Unlocked + 3 Promotion Tokens!
5 Days After Launch - 4000 Coins Unlocked + 4 Promotion Tokens!
8 Days After Launch - 5000 Coins Unlocked + 5 Promotion Tokens!
11 Days After Launch - 5000 Coins Unlocked + 5 Promotion Tokens!
14 Days After Launch - 5000 Coins Unlocked + 5 Promotion Tokens!

All points after this will be unlocked at an accelerated 2-4x Rate

Legacy Rewards Unlocked
All Legacy Rewards will be unlocked on May 1st. Two Eras ago we introduced Legacy Rewards about half way through the Era. The reason we are releasing all the legacy rewards at one time on the 1st like last era is due to the fact that it is an added boost of items that was more balanced in the middle of an Era, not on launch day. 

19 Hours until launch from the time this is posted! Get Hyped Archlighters! Age of Dracona approaches!
