After a massive and groundbreaking NA Launch, we are exceptionally optomistic and working hard for the upcoming EU season. We cant wait to share all the improvements we have been working on to make Archlight bigger and better.

We have briefly mentioned a list of features and changes that will be coming to EU in a recent past announcement, on the 13th we will be posting a more clear teaser with images of all the changes and additions coming to EU !​

Archlight European Season Releases
February 15th 10:00am PST / 1:00pm EST / 18:00 GMT / 20:00 CEST

Our Promise
Archlight has now been online for nearly 4 years. Including the first beta it has been up for over 4 years! Since day 1, we have always garanteed that every dollar you spend on Archlight you will receive back in the event of a new Season! Our team will always keep this promise to every single player of Archlight. As in past Season's, points will be rolled out to ensure that the economy isn't destroyed by a dumping of Archlight Coins. At the bottom of this post you can view our standard point release schedule.

Heirloom Points For Last Seasons Progress!
All Accounts have received Heirloom Points for their past season progress!
Accounts receive Heirloom Points based on their strongest character on their account. For every Achievement Point, you receive 1 Heirloom Point. As well, you will receive additional Heirloom Points based on your characters Awakening Level & Total Power based on the following scale.

Awakening Levels
1-500 = 1 Heirloom Point Per 100 Levels
501-1000 = 2 Heirloom Point Per 100 Levels
1001-1500 = 3 Heirloom Point Per 100 Levels
1501+ = 5 Heirloom Points Per 100 Levels


Power
2001-5000 Power = 1 Heirloom Point per 500 Power
5001-8000 Power = 2 Heirloom Point per 500 Power
8001-10000 Power = 3 Heirloom Point per 500 Power
10001+ Power = 5 Heirloom Point Per 500 Power

When a season ends, you will receive all of those heirloom points immediatly on Launch for the next season, as well, half the heirloom points earned will be added to your heirloom points total, these are also received every new season! So even multiple seasons later, you are benefitting more and more for your past progress on Archlight! While new players enjoy new seasons, you will always grow stronger from past play despite a fresh start!

As well, you will receive heirloom points based on progress on another server if you link your account! More info below in Account Linking

Heirloom Points & Heirloom Perks
All Legacy Points have been converted at a 30 > 1 ratio to Heirloom Points. These function the same way as Legacy Points previously has. Heirloom Points can no longer be used to purchase direct items (stat stones, legendary stones, etc) but can now purchase Heirloom Crates, which not only have all of these items inside them, but also Heirloom Perks, which can be used to permanently strengthen your character for the entire era! A character can only redeem 1 of each Heirloom Perk, however they can redeem as many Unique Heirloom Perks as available.

Boss Stages & New Mechanics
Our major focus for the new European season was improving all the current content, as we actually have an insane amount of content, alot is just fairly 1 dimensional. Most of the story bosses, and world bosses, now have different stages and more unique mechanics, making them more thought provoking and challenge oriented.

Account linking
Many of you have already seen, but you are now able to Link your NA & EU accounts with eachother! To do so, simply login to your account on the website, and hit the Link Account button! By linking your account, you will receive heirloom points on both accounts in the event of a new season! Additionally, we will have cross-server limited editions that will be available for both your accounts if purchased on one account!

Keeping the Meta Changing and Fresh.


A New Gem has been added, which has both essence find and loot luck.
Forest Gems has received cooldown reduction to accompany attack speed giving mages a more viable dps endgame. Our plan moving forward is to keep each season unique and fresh by introducing small things to change the standard meta.

New player experience improved - New Information Windows
It was important for us to improve the new player learning process come the new season. With the new notification system, we have also added over 3 dozen tutorial images that explain the vast majority of primary systems on Archlight! For many of you this wont be important, but for the large amount of new players we have every season, this will better teach those players so they are not bombarding help chat or quitting due to confusion/being overwhelmed!


Soulbound Exchange Tokens
You can now purchase a soulbound exchange token for 1 living token, allowing you to exchange a soulbound Backpack or Trinket for their living tokens back.

Guild window
We now have a full UI for Guild Management! This will allow much better control of your guild within Archlight as well as has many new features for guilds and guild leaders to enjoy!

Upgrade Capps and Chance Changed
Upgrade Tiers are now the same as NA, however the dificulty is slightly higher, NA will receive the same changed in it's second season, making the max upgrade on equipment and weapons to +40. Rune & Soul upgrading capp has been changed to +20 and the chance on higher tiers has been very slightly lowered.

Progression Tokens
Players will now receive progression tokens as they level up (more frequently at lower level, however you will receive them from late game progression as well). These tokens are soulbound, and allow you to win a random amount of Boost Points.

New Hotkey Window
We have implemented a massively customizable new hotkey window, allowing you to customize every key used on Archlight!


Coins Ressurected From The Dead! - Time Table
1 Hour Before Launch - 2000 Coins Unlocked + 2 Promotion Tokens + 5 Heirloom Points!
48 Hours(2 Day) After Launch - 3000 Coins Unlocked + 3 Promotion Tokens + 7 Heirloom Points!
72 Hours After Launch - All cosmetic tokens given to accounts!
5 Days After Launch - 4000 Coins Unlocked + 4 Promotion Tokens + 10 Heirloom Points!
8 Days After Launch - 5000 Coins Unlocked + 5 Promotion Tokens + 15 Heirloom Points!
11 Days After Launch - 5000 Coins Unlocked + 5 Promotion Tokens + 15 Heirloom Points!
14 Days After Launch - 5000 Coins Unlocked + 5 Promotion Tokens + 15 Heirloom Points!
17 Days After Launch - 6000 Coins Unlocked + 6 Promotion Tokens + 20 Heirloom Points!
20 Days After Launch - 6000 Coins Unlocked + 6 Promotion Tokens + 20 Heirloom Points!
All points after this will be unlocked at an accelerated rate and be received by 4 days.

Patch Notes February 20th
Client

- Merged a public contribution to the Market System (mainly Offer History)
- Fixed an issue where hotkeys and chat wouldn't fully load because the battle list module were disabled
- Disabled underground colorization since people complained about the ambient light setting
- Awakening Level will now be sent to the guild window

Guild window
  • Allowing closing the window with the escape button
  • Ability to kick yourself out of your guild (to leave the guild) from the guild window
  • Fix the issue of guild icon not being shown properly
Hotkeys
  • Fixed hotkeys not properly saving
  • Fixed where certain shortcuts didn't work (numpads, bot window)
  • Fixed where the keystrokes registered multiple times to cause the player to be kicked out of the game
  • Stability improvements
Server
- Fixed energy regeneration (identifier issue)
- Fixed a regeneration issue (force life enchant to reset ticks)
- Solo & Greater charges that are bought with boost points will be spent instantly when you purchase a charge while being inside a dungeon already (only if you aren't entitled to retrieve reward from the available chest(s))
- Heirloom Crates are now properly soulbound
- Moved the application of equipment bonuses after your other bonuses upon logging in, this generally leads to less health/mana for your character but an accurate representation of what you should have had from the beginning.

Patch Notes
Coming Soon - 26th or 28th

Dungeon Rework

Creatures in dungeons will no longer give experience. Clearing Dungeon Creatures however will contribute to the total experience rewarded for completing a Dungeon. If you kill no creatures in a dungeon, the chest will yield 0 experience. If you clear all of them, it will yield the full amount possible of experience. The Total Experience given from dungeon chests has been increased dramatically.
Randomized Event Schedule
Every 2 hours instead of a set event, a random event will occur instead. This is so that no matter your time schedule, you can participate in any event type. The same event will not happen within 5 events of another. Upcoming event will be displayed still.

Ability To Test Your DPS while Training
Training Knights have been reskinned & renamed. They will now display your DPS when using them.

Pits Inferno Boss Nerf
Pits Inferno Boss will now only spawn a copy 25% as often.

Magic Walls & Wild Growths Changed now have their own global cooldown, and so can be used at the same time as attack spells

Healing Runes can now be recharged without having to wait for 0 charges.​

Loving the era so far, however, will there ever be the ability to join greater dungeons solo similar to regular dungeons? It's quite difficult for lower-power f2p players to find a team to dung with and as a result, I'm almost constantly sitting at 6 charges.

Unfortunatly not, it's one of those things that we want to have a somewhat balance of encouraging team play and solo play. We like to keep some features reserved for community building and player coopoeration.

Thanks for the feedback and kind words :) means alot to us.

Have u considered lowering the wait for a dungeon charge? 4 hours is pretty long especially when thats the only thing u can honestly level on when youre trying to reach 1500. The regular tasks only give like 5 levels a task lol.

They've already boosted the experience a dungeon gives therefor I dont think they need to lower the time on dungeon charges.

Patch Notes
Coming March 8th


Furniture Improvements
You can now view an item's unique buff when you look at it
You can now view an item's cooldown when you look at it (applies to all items that uses a cooldown system)
You may only refill your solo/greater dungeon charges twice a day
You are no longer able to stack gold/essence find buffs

Corpse Ownership Improvements
There has been some discussions about whether the corpse owner system is flawed or not due to there being scenarios where a single player becomes the owner of a corpse when there is a group of players (party) attacking the same creature.
Now party leaders will be the sole damage dealer for a party which in turn should eliminate the scenario explained above in most cases

Misc Fixes
Enflaming
Fixed an issue where it didn't inflict as much damage as it were supposed to do
Bounties
Minor fixes in regards to IP and Guild checks to better eliminate possible abuse
Resistance
Fixed an issue where it didn't work particularly well (i.e. wearing soulhunter backpack)
Notification
You should no longer be receiving vocation rewards for advancing in a skill
Otherworld Lord
Fixed an issue where their illusionist summons contributed to your task kill(s)
Gems
Attack Spell Cooldown boost now applies for Soul Runes as well
Rifts
Added better randomization logic to avoid multiple runs of same rift
Map
Many miscellaneous fixes

Client

New smoother and more consistent walk/idle animations (you can view before/after in the discord announcement)
Minor fixes to idle state (i.e. fire elemental's are animated when standing still)
Some fixes to Emoji's​

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 have Very excited about this.
