Patch Notes May 1st

30 April 2019 (22:56) by Archlight Team


Some of this patch may go through in the late night, if Ninja feels the need to reboot the server for lag reducing purposes, however Ramparts will unlock at 10:00am PST :)

There will likely be ALOT more patch notes added in here before the patch - to cover all the other fixes that have been made - but most our fixes have been hot fixes and applied without patching, so this list isn't anything massive currently.


Base Health & Mana Changes
Bard, Sorcerer, Druids Health Gain per level increased from 15 > 20
Guardian, Berserker, Rogue, Corsair Mana Gain per level increased from 25 > 40
Monk & Necromancers Mana Gain per level increased from 45 > 75

This is to help lower level players not regenning enough mana for their early game spell rotations. 

We have fixed many of the bot issues, primarily the targeting. For now, if anyone wants to use it, you can get the new beta modules build in our Discord Announcement Section, we will release a new client with this in once we feel it's sufficiently public tested. 

The bounce damage of Richochet has been increased by 50%

A fix to gems in equipment sometimes not properly working 

Ramparts are now available to be accessed via the Quest UI
You can read about Ramparts in the expansion patch notes - Couple tips though - Bring a big party for optimal reward bags - and kill as many bosses as possible!

House Decorations

29 April 2019 (11:01) by Archlight Team

Many players have addressed concerns of us having had these house furnitures available in the previous NA season, but not available anymore, despite us not saying they were limited editions (meaning a fixed time frame where players could buy them) and that's a fair complaint, we never said they were limited edition, they shouldn't have been removed without giving players a fair chance to obtain them at a time other than the NA-off season when many were on EU. So we have added them back into NA.
These are all Exclusive Items, meaning you will receive them back automatically every Season. They will be available all season long for all of NA, so dont feel any rush to obtain one if you are wanting to.
All House Decorations are 4 LT's.



All furnitures do the exact same thing, the choice is simply cosmetic. 
All furnitures will allow the user, when unwrapped, to select one of the following buffs, this furniture will only provide this buff once the buff is selected. Different furnitures can have different buffs based on which you select to give it. The following buffs are available for selection.

1. Gain 4 solo dungeon charges - 20 hour Cooldown
2. Gain 4 greater dungeon charges- 20 hour Cooldown
3. +10 in a stat for duration of 23 hour Cooldown (Can only receive this buff three times total but unique to each stat)
4. +10% essence find - 23 hour Cooldown
5. +15% gold - 23 hour Cooldown
6. +12 hours stamina 20 hour Cooldown (Can not exceed 36 hours of total Stamina)

Additional Patch Notes!

25 April 2019 (19:28) by Archlight Team

Archlight North America Season 2
Launch: April 27th 10:00am PDT / 1:00pm EDT / 17:00 GMT / 19:00 CEST

Doorbusters & Cross-Server Aura's!

Not only are all prices reduced by 25%~ on NA & EU moving forward. But for the first 48 hours of NA's Launch, any donation of
$71.99 (59.99euros) will come with 5 FREE Archlight Keys!

& any donation of
$143.99 (119.99euros) will come with 10 FREE Archlight Keys!

These will not run out over the 48 hour duration, but after that will no longer be available.

In the past, we would do cosmetics as doorbusters, that had a limited supply and once out were gone! Many have addressed that they would much prefer we did Season/Era exclusive's, instead of a limited supply, and we have listened!
 
On Launch, 5 New Aura's will be available on NA! These will be one of the few promotions we do on NA, and thus they will be available all season/era long! Meaning you dont need to full rushed to buy 2 on day 1 if you wanted 2 of them! We feel this is better than having them for a brief limited time and instead players can pace themselves how they choose, or splurge and treat themselves ;)

In order the aura names are
Faith Guard | Sin | Mystic | Static | Illumination



Each of these Aura's are T4 Health & Mana Aura's (Highest Tier) giving the user +1.5%/1.5% health & mana (All cosmetics were lowered due to the Health/Mana Buff)!

Additionally; all of these are Limited Edition Exclusives & CROSS-SERVER! Meaning you will receive them back automatically every season, on your NA & EU accounts! And lastly, we will be pushing these to your EU heirloom account a few days after NA's launch, meaning you can enjoy it on your EU account shortly after as well!
Each will be 8 Living Tokens (which are now 25% cheaper)

Content Creators Playing Archlight North America!
We are excited to announce Hegal has also signed on as a content creator! He will be making youtubes & livestreaming on twitch on Archlight with his nearly 20,000sub channel! You can check him out here - https://www.youtube.com/user/Hegal2015
Below you can see a full list of all the content creators playing Archlight Online! (however, 2-3 more are likely to be added before launch) ;)
 
 

Ashen Content Placement!
We spent a good deal of time deciding where we wanted to align the Ashen Content and if or if not we want it to be apart of the Story Quest Progression. Our primary goal in mind was we wanted to #1 make sure that everyone who plays gets to experience the Ashen Expansion (This was by far our favorite expansion to make, and has alot of really fun & unique boss fights & quest mechanics) and #2 we wanted it to release to EU relatively soon. 

Thus, The Shadows Of The Ashen Expansion Content will be available right after Iceforged! There is a portal to access it in the depot, that will take you to Necropolis where you will start your first Ashen Quests that are able to be done solo or with others, and then through the Quest UI you will be able to access 4 of the Main Ashen Quests.
Because of the placement of the Ashen Content & Ashen Weapons, we have further adjusted the attack of several weapons (This is based on 2h weapons)

Ashen Sword (T1) - 1 Attack
Refined Ashen Sword (T2) - 10 Attack
Greater Ashen Sword (T3) - 20 Attack
Superior Ashen Sword (T4) - 30 Attack
Maledict Ashen Sword (T5) - 41 Attack (But each weapon has +20 to a stat of your choosing)
Maledict Ashen Weapons will also be required for later weapon progress ;)
Goldencrafted Weapons - 41 Attack
Iceforged - 42 Attack
Mastercrafted Weapons - 43 Attack
Reforged Mastercrafted - 45 Attack
Forgemaster Weapons - 48 Attack

Keep in mind, these are all base attack rates, and weapons scale higher from upgrades if they have a higher base.

Rei Dos Coins Promotion Items!
South American Players Rejoice! Now any coin purchase from Rei Dos Coins will come with the Promotion Items that paypal users get as well! In the near future, the amount of coins you get will slightly lower because of this, as Rei Dos Coins takes a large portion of the payments that paypal does not.

Increased Party Size For Tasks!
We have increased the amount of party members that receive contribution towards a task from 2 to 4! I know many of you will be very excited about this change :) we may one day change this back, but we will see how it goes with 4!

Max Party Size Increased
Max Party Size increased to 40 as many mentioned they run large PUB runs, however it remains limited to 20 for Heroic Quests & Ramparts.

House Bid Duration has been lowered from waiting 48 hours to 24 hours.

You can now see your full shop transaction history!
