Developers Notes - January 22nd 2017

As you guys know, it's very important that we keep you guys in the loop on what we're working on, why, and whats next. One way we try to do this is with Developers Notes. This is something we try to post as often as we can, when we feel its worthwhile doing so. These notes are things we are working on, plan to do, or are releasing already. It is important to know that anything listed we may choose not to do, alter, or release at a future date. This is just a glimpse into our minds as of the moment of writing this. Enjoy :)

First off, we're super pleased with how this recent patch went. Dispite some things needing fixing up and editing here and there (some that still needs rebalancing and more tests put in - Like warzones..) we're very excited about the prospect of this content and the future it offers. Additionally, we're very motivated on re-working some current dungeons, and adding more puzzling quests + boss fights after seeing how well the most recent Awakening Boots Quest was received. This definitely motivated the dev team from the extremely talented mapper who made this labyrinth of underwater death to the brainstorming of the boss mechanics and ultimately the releasing of this to the players. Here is a small rough layout on whats on our mind, and when we plan to release it.

Additionally, due to needing some more reworking and rebalancing, warzones will be removed from event list until most likely Tuesday, at latest Friday.

Planned to release on January 24th 2017 Patch

Golden Regrade Keys craftable ingame by blacksmithing
Regrade Increased to a max of grade 7 - Bone and Cloud keys added to game.
Tasks will now give a different amount of energy based on the difficulty of the task, ranging from 5 energy to 25 energy.
Some tasks cooldowns changed.
Guardians health gained per level increased from 40 > 50. (If you are already level 1500 etc~ you will receive all that health when you prestige and re-level.
Berserkers health per level changed from 20 > 25
Warzones further reworked and re-balanced.


Future Patches -
Lord Tokens and all the content they bring. We plan to make a massive post about Lord Tokens, how they'll be acquired and what they'll be used for. But to give a little spoiler, they'll be making the purchase of many consumable items much easier to get, such as Gem Removers, Experience Boosters, etc. They'll be required by daily puzzling quests that may require some team effort. Additionally the new gladiator arena will also play a large roll, fight terrible massive multi-mechanic bosses with an alliance to earn your group Lord Tokens.
Armor Enchantments - Similar to weapon enchantments however armor specific, this will bring in some very unique mechanics and further build customization.
Pirate Island released, filled with open world content, quests, and dungeons.

We have much more to tease about later. But this for now!
Thanks all and Happy Archlighting!

Wikipedia Winners + Bump of old post

Our Wikipedia page has grown vastly over the past 2 months thanks to contributions from many Archlighters! This is amazing for our community and the future growth of the server, as well as ease of access to finding information for new or existing players.

Below is a post from earlier in the era, for people who may of not seen it or didn't know about it. Additionally, the set of Wikipedia contributors who won are listed at the end.

Mini-Patch Notes

Fixes/Changes
None Prestige Rifts Fixed
Afk-Bot Checker timer changed from 5 minutes to 10. On Archlight we've always wanted to allow players to multi-task playing Archlight, while doing other things such as a game of league, homework, watching a movie, etc. Our goal is simply to prevent fully afk botters (while theyre out for the night, sleeping, working, etc)
Afk-Bot Checker will now send a private message to the player as well.
TDM event fixed, all events will be live again.
Ability to purchase prestiges if you are 5+ working again.
The Ancient Leviathan summons now will attack separate targets if taunted to.


Notes:
PvP Ladder reset, rewards to be given out tomorrow morning (PST).
Wiki rewards to be given out tomorrow morning as well, we will be doubling the prizes.
We are working on fixing up a few other things, more notes to come.
