Why to Hunt for Treasure?
In ArcheAge there are multiple ways of making money, such as: killing mobs, crafting items, gathering resources, farming, taxing houses... and of course treasure hunting.

Why would you go treasure hunting?

  • Profit - to earn some gold, find artefacts.
  • Adventure - its fun to do, and its unique not present in "other" MMO games.
  • Danger - pirates, underwater mobs, and of course the badass Kraken boss.

Getting a Ship Ready:
First you will need a ship. There are more ways getting a ship, for example you can ask someone who already has one to take you to the spot where you want to hunt for treasure, another way to get a ship is to just craft one, it will require some time and resources, but in the end you wont depend on others and go to treasure hunting whenever you want to.

Getting the Scuba Gear Ready:
A character can stay underwater for a limited time, and without a diving gear this time wont be enough to perform the treasure "digging" process.

Scuba Gear:

  • You can find it at the stairs on the ship, leading from the water to the upper deck.
  • Can be used for 10 minutes before the oxygen runs out, after that some minutes (5 minutes by some sources) needed to fully recharge it again, and during this process its not wearable.

Scuba Gear for the treasure hunting consists of 3 parts:
AAUTHFlippers-vi.jpgFlippers - Increases swimming speed by 50%. Can be crafted from leather, point and ore.
AAUTHDivingSuit-vi.jpgDiving Suit - Crowns stock 02 for 1 minute. Can be crafted from pearl, paint and ore.
AAUTHAirBaggs-vi.jpgAir Bags - Disposable, expendable and compulsory subjects. Can be crafted.


Getting to the Diving Spot:
Sail or swim to the desired treasure hunting spot, treasures are scattered all around the ocean floor randomly, usually near ship wrecks, but according to a legend there is a Kraken boss which sank many ships with valuable cargo (good luck with him).

Finding the Treasure Chests:
Studying the sea floor you can stumble upon a wreck, and next to it notice a couple of treasure chests, if you are lucky.
The search may take long time, depends how lucky you are and how good "eye" you have since you have to look around carefully.

Rising up the Chest to the Surface:
Chests can't be opened underwater, to open them you need to lift them up by attaching an Air Bags on them which will lift them up to the surface.

Whats the Point of the Treasure Hunting?
Well about this is still hard to tell any concrete thing, its still a new feature and not much testing have been done. Koreans did some testing to compare the underwater treasure hunting with gathering, and they got to a conclusion that the treasure hunting is more profitable, but i wouldn't take this too seriously yet, since resource prices may differ allot.
Rumor says that you can win a "jackpot".

Here it is all types(except shackles for 5 silver ) of underwater treasures that i got on cbt5 (everything on screen i gather just ~40-45 min)

Also treasures aren't only between east and west continents, they are also in the sea between south and north continent.

luv this... apart from the treasure hunting itself, it's the attention to detail like needing air bags to raise the treasure to the surface that makes this a unique experience in mmo's!

keep up the good work guys ~.o

From a video I found on youtube today, I learned that the swim mechanics for Archeage are even better than I thought.

 

Depending on how you angle your cameras while your character swims controls what type of swimming strokes, such as the back stroke, your character does.

 

That is a very nice touch for the creators of Archeage.

 

You can see it in this video. Just pay close attention to the player's character as the player changes the angle of their camera.

Underwater Exploring

Not that AA has a huge open world on land, it has a very detailed underwater world too, going to show a few pictures and videos from the test server about some new underwater areas and underwater bosses.
