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
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.
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.
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.
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!
