New Content20 March 2019 (23:12) by Gamemaster Knighter
We are preparing the largest content expansion we have ever done (but a 2-3x margin as well). This will also have many reworks to issues/systems players dislike as well including pvp & quest griefing. To manage expectations, this isn't coming in the next week or two. But we will be working round the clock (quite literally 12-16 hours a day 7 days a week) on this. We will be continuing to drop teasers throughout the process. We are Very excited about this.

Patch Notes15 January 2019 (23:52) by Gamemaster Knighter
January 19th Patch Notes
Now requires any type of spirits/phantoms/wraiths
Now requires 2 of any of the 5 world bosses
~~Refreshing Amulet & Oblations / Minor Oblation Amulets~~
Now regenerates 0.5% hp and 0.4% mana every 2 seconds (compared to 2%/1% previously) now based on max health/mana rather than base.
Archer:Snaring Shot paralyze is now 100% stronger and also lasts an additional 1 second (1 > 2) - movement speed change made that paralyze non-existant.
Lulaby's paralyze is now 50% stronger and also lasts an additional 1 second (1 > 2) - same reason as snaring shot.
Flask and Bottle of Rum both buffed by 15% (Corsairs were healing as much as Archers but have 15% more hp, hence the buff)
Soul Rune no longer requires a target as it is pretty silly to have an AoE rune require a target.
Quick Draw buffed by 67% (Corsairs lacked a filler ability (considering their high cooldowns) that is worth using compared to every other vocation)
Ravenous Fiend range changed to 2 (from 4) so they can make a use of their AoE
Demonic Blood and Bonefiends have been buffed by like 300% because their damage was similar to the summons from level 150.
Witch's hourglass has been buffed by 92%~ but the amount of halved has been halved, this has been changed to match the new regen system (the damage was simply too slow to match the big regeneration numbers) and give more of a "wow" factor for necro players.
Reaper's touch has been buffed by 94%~ but the amount of rounds has been halved. Same reason as above.
Necromancer Soul Runes (t1 and t2) have been buffed by about 92%~ but the amount of rounds has been halved. Same reason as above.
Change Eruption to shoot 25% faster for more consistency
You can now use the rune freely without the need of a target.
Exura ico nerfed by 25%
Life Steal nerfed by 25%
Blood Sense nerfed by 50% (from +60% to +30%)
T1 Soul rune nerfed by about 18%
T2 Soul rune nerfed by about 21% (its still superior to t1, nothing to worry about)
Fixed the bug where the target would be able to dodge the rune. It now requires a target.
Evocation has been buffed by 15% (Mages sustain went down by quite a bit since NA is limited to +40)
All crafting professions have received the next tier of crafting.
Cooking has received relic stones for awakened stones (1:5)

Addon task names has been renamed

Patch December 28th28 December 2018 (02:39) by Gamemaster Knighter
Coming December 28th
Dove Mode Removed
Dove Mode has been removed for the time being, as the playerbase seems to not like the change.
Instead, we have added disintegrate runes back into the game, increasing their use range to 3 squares, however, they can only destroy items that are used to block with (parcels, crates, etc). We have added half a dozen other limitations to these to prevent abuse while still offering the desired function.
Achievement Reset Potion added to the Arch Shop
Fixed multiple client side issues
These fixes should resolve the issues some players have been having of black tiles, duplicate characters on screen, client crashes and more.
Like System Removed
I mean, really this system was easily abusable and so didn't mean much if anything. And will be replaced with the Tutor System Below.
New Tutor System
We've been having dificulties for years now coming up with a way to reward our tutors, as giving everyone something isn't fair as some tutors help 5x more than others. We wanted to find a way to reward these tutors, for actually how much they're helping the playerbase, without there being an easy way to abuse it without us catching these abusors and removing them. In tomorrow's patch, we will be adding a new system in where tutors can use a simple talkaction, to receive a yes/no from the player as to whether or not they helped the player, which will take a snapshot of their recent dialogue allowing us to very simply verify any abuse.
How the system works
When a tutor has answered a player's question, he can simply say /tutor [playername] which will automatically pm them "Have I helped your question? [Yes] [No], the player can then simply respond Yes or No, if he says Yes, you will receive 1 Admiration Point.
At the end of every month, we will be rewarding tutors based on how many Admiration Points they have received, with either Coins, Living Tokens, Exclusive Cosmetics or more, we are still undecided on this. We will likely also filter out tutors that help very few players to replace them with new tutors.
These Admiration Points will also be displayed when people "look" at you in-game, as how the [Likes] previously were. In the near future, we will also be adding a badge system, to show ingame and inchats how many people you've helped.
Please note; tutors caught abusing this system, will be permanently banned from Archlight. If you notice a tutor abusing this system, feel free to report it to Gamemaster Knighter, or Community Manager Rufus. However, we will likely catch them when we verify responses at end of months when tutors are rewarded for their helping of players.
Notas de Patch
Em 28 de dezembro
Modo Dove removido
O Modo Dove foi removido por enquanto, já que a base de jogadores parece não gostar da mudança.
Em vez disso, nós adicionamos desintegrar as runas de volta ao jogo, aumentando seu alcance de uso para 3 quadrados, no entanto, eles só podem destruir itens que são usados para bloquear (parcels, caixas, etc). Nós adicionamos meia dúzia de outras limitações a estas para prevenir abusos enquanto ainda oferecemos a função desejada.
Corrigidos vários problemas do cliente
Essas correções devem resolver os problemas que alguns jogadores tiveram de blocos pretos, personagens duplicados na tela, falhas do cliente e muito mais.
Sistema de Like removido
Quer dizer, realmente esse sistema era facilmente abusivo e, portanto, não significava muito, nem nada. E será substituído pelo Sistema Tutor Abaixo.
Novo Sistema de Tutor
Nós temos tido dificuldades por anos, agora chegando com uma maneira de recompensar nossos tutores, pois dar a todos algo não é justo, pois alguns tutores ajudam 5 vezes mais do que os outros. Nós queríamos encontrar uma maneira de recompensar esses tutores, por quanto eles estão ajudando a base de jogadores, sem que haja uma maneira fácil de abusar dela sem que possamos pegá-los e removê-los. No patch de amanhã, estaremos adicionando um novo sistema onde os tutores podem usar uma conversa simples, para receber um sim / não do jogador, se eles ajudaram ou não o jogador, que irá tirar uma foto do seu recente diálogo, nos permitindo simplesmente verificar qualquer abuso.
Como o sistema funciona
Quando um tutor respondeu à pergunta de um jogador, ele pode simplesmente dizer /tutor [nome do jogador], que automaticamente irá dar pm com "Eu ajudei sua pergunta? [Sim] [Não], o jogador pode simplesmente responder Sim ou Não, se ele disser Sim, você receberá 1 Ponto de Admiração.
No final de cada mês, nós estaremos recompensando os tutores com base em quantos Pontos de Admiração que eles receberam, seja com Coins, Living Tokens, Cosméticos Exclusivos ou mais, ainda estamos indecisos sobre isso. Provavelmente, também filtraremos os tutores que ajudam muito poucos jogadores a substituí-los por novos tutores.
Esses Pontos de Admiração também serão exibidos quando as pessoas "olharem" para você no jogo, assim como as [Likes] anteriormente. Num futuro próximo, também adicionaremos um sistema de crachás para mostrar o jogo e comprometer quantas pessoas você ajudou.
Observe; tutores pego abusando deste sistema, será banido permanentemente do Archlight. Se você notar um tutor abusando desse sistema, sinta-se à vontade para denunciá-lo ao Gamemaster Knighter ou ao Community Manager Rufus. No entanto, provavelmente os capturaremos quando verificarmos as respostas no final dos meses, quando os tutores são recompensados por sua ajuda aos jogadores.
Shadow Of The Ashen21 December 2018 (22:04) by Gamemaster Knighter
A cloud is growing…
The shadow of the Ashen is feeding off the crimes of the villains of Archlight.
The ancestors of our world held their tongues. They dared not speak of the eclipse that almost consumed the land ten thousand years ago…until now.
All the greed and murdering of Archlighters has weakened an ancient barrier sealing off a fiendish temple. For that vile place…is a gateway to the parallel world of Dusklight. The Ashen are rising from the depths of all the pain and suffering…
…And the Heart of the Thousands won’t stop until Archlight is consumed by eternal darkness.
