Patch 4.0 has just hit Archeage over in Korea, and with that, patch notes have arrived. In this article, I’ll be translating the changes that XL made in the latest patch. This will be quite the bland article. Everybody prepare to panic at these changes.

Cross Server Arenas

XL has added Cross-Server Arenas in this patch.
– Arenas with Cross-Server Integration: Naval Arena, Balanced Arenas (Both 1v1 and 3v3)
– The integrated battlefield can be checked in the battlefield entry window.
– In the integrated battlefield, it is not possible to check all items and bags, and some chat channels are restricted.
– In the integrated battlefield, the “battlefield interpreter” effect is applied, which allows you to temporarily use the official language of other continents.

Naval Arena

The Naval Arena was added. There will be an entire article on this when I finish it up, so keep your eyes open for that!

I’ll be sure to update this with the link to the article once it’s done.

Arena Changes

Improved the Arena selection UI and adjusted the order in which Arenas are displayed..
Added a Waiting period upon entering the Arena.
– If there is no problem with any of the players upon entering the Arena (Disconnect, etc.), the Arena will start within 10 seconds.
– If a player leaves in the Arena before it actually starts, additional players will enter from the queue. If there is not enough players to start the arena once the Waiting period is up, all players will automatically leave the Arena.
– If there are a lot of players queued up for the same arena, players will be admitted on a first come, first served basis.
– If the number of players on a team is not correct, the allies of the team with not the correct number of players will automatically leave the Arena.
The search method for Arenas was improved.
– The way to search for the same score range as yourself is changed to search all the targets within the available range.
– It is expected that the search latency will be reduced because it searches for a wider range of players from the beginning based on themselves.
Arena rewards were changed
– You will no longer receive Honor for winning Arenas. Instead, you will receive Kyrios’ Medals. 
– At the end of an Arena, Kyrios’ Medals will be mailed, with the amount received depending on the result of the match.
The rewards are listed below.

At the end of arena, if a player is away, they will not receive any reward.

Raids

Allied raid feature added. You can now merge two raids by sending a merger invite to the other raid leader. Combined raids can share the same quests and loot, and the existing raid leaders are each assigned one of the roles: Combined Raid Leader and Second Raid Leader. The Combined Raid Leader has the ability to invite players, change raid settings, mark the map, and change how loot is distributed. The Second Raid Leader is simply a representative of the second raid.

Combined raids can only interfere with your raid members, and you can not forcibly unsubscribe or invite other raid members.

If you combine two raids and there are less than people 50 people in the new raid, the new raid does not consist of two raids, but instead is just merged into one.

The new recipes of the Halcyona Necklace are listed below.

RankMaterials Required
Rank 12 Honorforged Medals
5 Starlight Archeum Dust
Rank 21 Rank 1 Halcyona Necklace
4 Honorforged Medals
10 Starlight Archeum Dust
Rank 31 Rank 2 Halcyona Necklace

So, in total, you’ll need 308 Honorforged Medals, which means a total of 616,000 Honor Points, but keep in mind that you probably won’t be starting from scratch, and that you will only have to do this once, as when you craft the Necklace up to the next tier, it automatically goes to the next tier, without having to rely on any RNG or unsealing.

Summon Changes

An anchor was added to the Merchant Schooner Ship.

Hope everyone enjoyed that! There is more to come, with the Naval Arena article being next, and after that, some articles on the XL Player Meeting.

One more thing: when I just started writing Omnom, some readers came up to me and asked if I had a PayPal to which they could donate. At the time, I answered that no, I did not, and that for the time being, I would not be taking any donations. Well, some time has passed, and I am happy to announce that now, I do have a personal link to a donation page. Here it is: https://www.paypal.me/markomnom. If you would like to donate, feel free to! At the same time, do not feel pressured to do so. My main support comes from everyone who is reading the articles, especially those that engage themselves in the discussion that follows. I really couldn’t do it without all of your support, so thank you!

    Hmm.. I think the new brilliant gear temper costs 50.000 honor, not 60.000. Maybe just a typo 🙂
    And really great article, hope at least some features find their way to NA/EU soon!

      The list of prices for the Gilda Stars doesn’t actually cover all the items that are purchased with Gilda Stars.

      Hey Mark,

      I have a similar question to this as well – how about warrior recipes (such as Frozen Anguish) that also require warrior medals? Did these get replaced with honorforged medals?

    Do we know what Merit items would go into which store (gilda, prestige, vocation)?

    I was saving my merit badges for the Predator Longliner, and I’m at 500/700, but I’m scared I farmed like crazy for nothing…

      Do you have any info about this, Mark? I am so sorry about insisting like this, I know you put a great amount of effort into translating all this, and I really appreciate it. I’m just an impatient person 😀

    If groth stones will get removed from quest rewards and replaced with honor, will we be able to convert the existing ones to honor, too?

    Do you have any way of seeing what the new Gear Score reward items are and what they are used for?
    Saw a screenshot of someone showing 4000-4050 with a 5 token reward.
    Wondered if these are just kyrios tokens or some other normal token or maybe they are some special currency for new things?
    If you can find out anything about them I will be grateful

        ooh ok, I saw something about rewards for higher GS, I guess it was a mistranslation at the time.
        Thanks for the reply, I thought it was a bit “too good to be true” Especially with people havin tradable gear to use alts or help friends etc making it a little broken xD

    Overall, it seems to me like more grinding has been added, crafting costs more basic mats, two different currencies for what used to be honor etc. They also removed sharpwind mines and palace cellar so say goodbye to easy 35g from merits, now only harder dungeons will have that option

    Can kyrios medals only be aquired through arena or is there some kind of exchange rate for honor?

    Can you share the recipe for the new buff food Roast Ribs? I understand existing buff items can be broken down in to their original mats I am curious what if any mats will become useless other than for breaking down.

      Only through Arenas. No exchange rate.

      I’ll look into the recipes and let you know.

        Hey Mark, just curious if you’ve had any luck on the new buff food recipe by chance? Thanks for all your work!

    When the honor cloaks are even-stoned you’re getting 15k honor back? Is that correct or a typo?

    Mark thank you very much for all the hard work you put into this.

    Let me tell you a story about old Gus. He was the meanest catfish in the pond, legend says the only way you can catch old Gus is with a piece of old Gus himself. Now, how did the first person catch old Gus? Well… that is a story for another time. FN Vyrava change lol..

    Again great work, only a couple decent things in here IMO, most is just typical XL games doing typical dumb shit. 🙁

    The Vyrava item probably just makes it easier to re-do the boss after killing it once.

    (You kill it, it has a chance to drop another Timespace Scroll so you can save yourself the farming of another Timespace Scroll. Vyrava Piñata. I hope Microsoft won’t sue…)

    Will weapon tempers effect the newly adjusted V2 obsidian shields now that they’re not an “equip effect”? Or is it still just p.def only that is affected by tempers?

    Packs will cost more labor now, a rough 60%increase, why? Making money is already hard and takes alot of time. Increasing materials for certain needed items, removing easy dungeon merits, and more.
    It feels so like we’re been forced to quit or open our wallets, again.

    This is perfect! If you just search to make quitt even more peoples….. Already the fact to be able to buy seeds with only vocation badge its a joke but increase the amount of lp for trade packs damn….Alright now i remember you just want pay to win in your game is that? Personally i can’t wait that update to just quitt again ^^ And this time never come back again so much more games are waiting for us will be fun.
    I don’t get it , like make a raid of a 100 peoples now? This is clearly to late but anyway it seem that peoples never play them games when they update it .

    Apologies if this has already been answered, but why are upgrade mats cheaper for spring swept roof mansion? Also can we get more info on them? Huge builder/decorator here. Need to know b: do we get decor limit increase to 350+ with the 3rd story? Will spring swept be able to remodel to Spired Chateau?

    So if merits are going away, where will rumbling archeum tree saplings going to be at? Will they only be loyalty in 4.0 or are they available in a different shop now?

    So…as the designs require more gilda stars,
    could we get gilda stars easiler in the future?
    If it still give 1 gilda per quest, I’m really unable to appreciate the update.
    I read through the patch notes, and just feel like…everything will be much more difficult to obtain in the future.

    Привет, Марк. Можешь объяснить первые 2 строки изменений торговли, в то что-то не совсем понятно, что это значит.
