Srsly? Name at least one.

There you have a couple NoxiousOT - Latest News - Open Tibia - Free multiplayer online role playing game (https://www.noxiousot.com/?subtopic=latestnews), https://kivera-global.net/?subtopic=alldownloads, Downloads - Evolunia (https://evolunia.net/?downloads) - just looking at most popular servers on otservlist, android client is a common thing after servers started using otcv8

Archlight probably made some more improvements to it though, since their regular client has like 30 buttons on their UI

Correct, most are just out of the box OTCv8, because their UI or gameplay is essentially tibia with a few additions. We've put quite a bit of work into our mobile client, but yea you're correct others have mobile clients as well

Backpacks and Trinkets are being removed from the LAT shop and added back to the PT shop for the upcoming Dracona season (and future Ildar seasons as well).

Dracona Down For Maintenance
The Dracona Server will be going down for maintenance to prepare for the new season on Wednesday, August 19th at 9:00am PT. If you are wanting to use any items to boost your power for heirloom rewards for the new season, make sure you do so before Wednesdays maintenance!

Character Creation
Character Creation for the New Dracona Season will open on Friday, August 21st at 9:00am PT!


New Season, Big Plans
Our team has worked incredibly hard over the last few months to prepare a literally game changing season for you all. Something we have felt more and more over the last year has been a growingly stale meta. Sure it slightly changes season to season with balances and system changes, but ultimately, classes are played very much the same.

We wanted to completely mix the meta up, bring fresh life into Archlights meta to veterans and new players alike, and a heck of a lot more customization and build variations for you all to explore! Based on the massive jump in discord activity, this design shift is being very hyped and well received so far, we cant wait to see the new builds that come from the meta shift!



Awakening System Revamp

Each skill now has 4 available awakening effects, 1 guaranteed and then 3 for a player to choose to further awaken.

Players can now choose between 12 different skills (10 spells, soul rune & auto attack) instead of just the previous 5. However only 5 skills can be awakened at a time, but these can be changed anytime not in combat. This will allow for over 364 new combinations on how you play your class!

And a little extra cookie for you all. Every single awakening variation is now available to view on our wiki - Revamped Awakening (https://archlightonline.gamepedia.com/Revamped_Awakening)

So get to theorycrafting for launch!!


Android Mobile Client

Accessibility is everything, and everyone has a mobile phone. So a big focus for us has been developing a mobile client for Archlight that connects directly to our main game servers (not a mobile-only version of Archlight). While some other projects have released hardly usable & bloated mobile clients, ours is significantly more useful, dynamic & playable. With a streamlined mobile UI, full Archbot support, and many other QoL improvements, you can now play ALL of Archlight on the go. Waiting for the bus? Run a quick dungeon while you wait. In class? PAY ATTENTION! - Or make sure you dont miss that Jorus Run while the teacher rambles for an hour ;)

The new mobile client will be available for all servers on the launch of Dracona!


Targeting System Improvements
The targeting systems logic has been completely redone, resulting in a significantly smoother experience on low end and mid-range machines. No more lagging in Darksteel! Heck, no more lagging anywhere.

Before


After



Lowered Rates - Longer and Better Season
Due to another overwhelmingly positive community feedback and reception, the awakening experience rates on Dracona will be further slightly lowered to make a more engaging and natural progression experience. Past changes were very well received and we feel a slight increase may aid even further to making the most ideal progression rate. To be clear, the change is only applied to awakening levels and will not slow down the 1-1500 progress rate which we feel currently is near perfect.



Backpacks & Trinkets back to Promotion Tokens
Backpacks and Trinkets have been removed from the LAT shop and added back to the PT shop for the upcoming Dracona season (and future Ildar seasons as well). We didn’t like the fact that these 2 essential slot items we’re locked in a season to season cost for the user. This isn’t a fun way to support our project, it’s a nuisance way, we want to make sure you guys feel good supporting what we have built over the last half a decade and continue to build everyday.


This Anniversary snuck up on our team out of nowhere… we’ve had our heads down so much on some of the most fun development we’ve done in years, that we totally forgot our anniversary was coming up until it was mentioned by a player in our discord! But it’s our 5th Anniversary! We cannot miss it! - holy shit it’s been half a decade of Archlight…

Our 5th Anniversary will come a bit later than the actual date. This is to make sure Dracona also gets involved on it (and gives us time to make the anniversary event even bigger and better for all three servers to enjoy!).

This years anniversary will be the biggest yet, with more in-game things to do, and more free stuff than ever before! Oh, and cake. Lots and lots of cake.

Archlight’s 5th anniversary events will be live on all servers on September 18th!


Dracona Cosmetic Races
The Achievement Point Races were very well received on the last NA and EU, so we have decided we will be continuing this with even more winners! We have doubled most the amount of cosmetic winners for all 5 races, additionally, the 150 achievement point race is now unlimited!

All cosmetics will be teased 2 days before launch!

3 Achievement Point Races
First 10 players to 300 Achievement Points

First 50 players to 200 Achievement Points

All players to obtain 150 Achievement Points

Quest Race
First 20 players to complete Hades Quest

Leveling Race
First 50 players to Level 1500


Archpass added to Achievement System
This was requested several dozen times now… so we listened! Your Archpass progression will now unlock you achievement points!

As usual, we will certainly have more notes and things to share leading up to launch, however there will be no class changes to mention before launch so you can reserve a character with the class you want based on the new awakening system!

The awakening experience decrease would be good if you introduced new ways to gain exp.
Right now it just means that you need to do more dungeons in order to level.. since dungeons is like the only way to level (at least during the first few weeks) which gets really boring really quickly. It was way better when rifts were actually good exp so you had something to look forward to every 3rd hour. Now it just feels like an idle-game where you do your dungeons, quests and then go AFK until they're off CD again.

Appreciate the feedback and noted. Something the team is already exploring & have a plan, but we want to do something more than just retunining numbers, instead reimaging the possibilities for players to exp.

More will come about this soon~

We're 10 days away from the new Draona Season
MobileClientMeme2.png
Due to how many players have already registered for the Dracona Season, as well as some big content creators like Buozzi, Dukoth, ZeikoRush & more playing for the season and not just launch weekend this time around, we have decided to increase the available slots for guilds from 25 cap max to 35.

We may consider slightly further increasing this based on launch demands, but for now prepare to have a 2nd or alt guild if above 35 members!

The New Dracona Season Launching in 5 DAYS will have 5 different races for players to partake in for exclusive cosmetics to obtain!
The biggest and baddest of them all is a more guild focused one.
The first 20 players to slay hades will receive a new "Shine" cosmetic, which can be used to enhance any outfit.
Only 20 of these will be available and will not be sold.
Showoff your dominance with this cosmetic for seasons to come!

First off what an absolutely wild season so far, almost 2 weeks in and we're hitting 150-200 person queues on a weekday! Absolutely mad. It's amazing to see how much excitement and attention Dracona is getting, our last Dracona season hit a record of 430 online, we blew past that hitting 821 before the servers got overloaded!

We've been hard at work making further optimizations to hopefully allow for a higher amount of players to be online at once, and further reducing that queue, however our main focus is keeping the servers stable, online and as lag free as possible!



No Bot? Enjoy Boosted Monster Essence Rate!

Manual players rejoice! We will be implementing a new system that allows you to turn off functions of the bot to receive an increase to your Monster Essence Find!

(These numbers are fully subject to change and likely will change before they release)

+20% Monster Essence Find if spell casting is off (25% for sorc, 15% for gunslinger, archer, and rogue)

+15% Monster Essence Find if healer is off

+10% Monster Essence Find if rune healer is off

+10% Monster Essence Find if Sio healer is off

+10% Monster Essence Find if targetting is off

+10% Monster Essence Find if you have no items in Autolooter

+90% Monster Essence Find if you have all bot functions off!




Dungeon Changes

You guys asked and we've listened! We will be reducing the recharge rate of dungeon charges from 4 hours to 8 hours, however, dungeons will now have 2x the rewards (experience and items). This ultimately means half the dungeon runs, same rewards. With this, we will also be reducing the amount of dungeon charges the dungeon furniture gives by 50% so it stays on par with the dungeon rewards.



Class Balances

We will be addressing a handful of primary balance issues, these will be updated Thursday so stay tuned!



Anniversary Event


Our half decade anniversary is here in Friday's Patch! Absolutely insane to think it's been over 5 years of Archlight already! This Archlight Anniversary will be action packed with some familiar community favorite activities (Cake throwing, Cake Eating Event & more)! Additionally, there will be over 13 new in-game obtained rewards for players to fight over!


A full list of everything able to be acquired during the event will be updated on Thursday with the class balance notes!



New End Game Quest Chain - Coming Soon


A New 3 Part Quest Chain will be releasing not this patch, but likely the one after! More information about this quest chain will drop next week!

We want to first off let all of you know know how much we appreciate the love and support you have showed us over the years! This era has been insane proof of our mutual love and support.

This latest NA Season was a big breakthrough for our team, showing the massive potential growth for Archlight as a whole. Breaking over 2x our previous NA Season record from this Spring, we were on track to break 1000 concurrent that day as well but due to server overload, had to immediately put in a 550 player queue. From there, we had huge queue's for 2 weeks, while of course queue's are not ideal, it shows how much hype and excitement the new season brought and the changes we made. We learnt alot from this on the development angle that the community is wanting to see, and we will be focusing on similar concepts for future Seasons and Expansions.

However, with that our primary goal is supporting more players on our servers. Archlights growth was massive, and we want to ensure next time we can fully handle that growth and then some!

As the community and support grows from the playerbase, our team is able to grow! Phoenix & Hajter are both joining the Archlight Team full-time! Hajter will be a full-time community manager available to assist in player concerns & help facilitate feedback to our development team!

Phoenix has officially left his full-time job, in which he would use his little free time to help Archlight religiously to join the Archlight Team full-time! Phoenix will be focusing on priority scheduling for the developers (making sure critical bugs are addressed immediately), growth of the Archlight Community & content development. Phoenix has more experience about Archlight as a whole than anyone in the team, him joining the project full-time will be a massive asset to the future of Archlight. With this, he will also be officially retiring his in-game character to avoid any potential bias.

Rufus will be moving to a full-time programmer position focusing on Bug-Fixes and Content Development. Having another full-time programmer on Archlight will not only ensure faster bug fixes, but also a much better stream of content development, balances, meta changes and far more! As you have already seen this season with some critical fixes and issues addressed and reloaded within hours to minutes! This will only further improve.

We are super excited about the new growth to our Team and what this means for the future of Archlight and we could not have done it without all of you and your support. Thank you from our entire team.

TL;DR:
  • Massive NA Season doubling our previous season player record.
  • Phoenix is joining our team as a full-time Archlight Project Lead.
  • Rufus becoming a full-time programmer with our team, focusing on bug fixes & content development.
  • Hajter is joining our team as a full-time Community Manager.

Christmas Events & Quest Line


As mentioned before we are applying most of the full patches from Ildar to Dracona on Friday December 18th, around 9:30am PT.!

This patch will require a new client which we will release around 9:00am PT for download.
You will not be able to log in until the patch finishes if you try using this client.

This patch will bring a full Christmas quest line available for all Archlighters to partake in! This can be accessed from the green portal in the depot.

By completing this questline, you will become a citizen of Santa's town, receiving a Reindeer Companion (+2 to all stats) a new Christmas Knight Outfit (Tier 2 Hp/Mp Outfit!) and also a Christmas Letterbag (Potion/Rune Relic - Increasing the regen from potions/runes)!

Additionally, dungeons boxes will all have an additional drop for the Christmas Season! Dungeon boxes will now also drop 2 candy canes (+5 energy when eaten) AND a christmas token this Christmas Season! Christmas Tokens can be turned in at the North Pole for free Christmas Presents!


Additionally, you can also obtain Large Christmas Presents for LAT's at the LAT Exchanger during the Christmas Event, while they have the exact same drop chance as Christmas Presents, they will give 2 rewards instead of 1. The color of the present does not change the rewards.


Christmas Present rewards can all be rewrapped if you do not like the reward! If you dont like a reward you get, you can simply take it to the Johnny the Wrapper and sell it for wrapping paper, to wrap a new present to open!

Hello Everyone! We'll be doing some change log postings. This is to keep the community more up to date and in the loop.

How our Change logs work is with our daily reboots we just simply add in fixes, balancements, or fine tuning. Information is always posted in the changelog in our discord as well. A easy join button is located on our homepage of your respective server at ArchlightOnline - Servers.
