*Bump*

I've started to edit it a bit:

 

1) Fixed the part about 1v1

2) Added more pictures such as mounts, maps and graphics

3) Started fixing the formatting~ by copying from .doc -> forums it kinda went crazy.

4) Added that there will be more areas on the northern continent in the future

5) Added Pantalai's guide to composer =)

 

To Do:

 - stuff like hasla tokens, naval battles and more stories will be added this weekend.

Hey KeksX. I am one of the officers from a hardcore PvP guild very, VERY intererested in ArcheAge. Just wanted to thank you for this awesome write up. I have linked it for my members and have posted some exeprts (giving you full credit of course) I hope you don't mind.

 

I have done a couple of information posts on our forums and I know it takes a large amount of time and a huge amount of effort to compile all of the information together and display it in a way that will make sense to everyone.

 

Kudos my friend and thanks again for this info, I am unable to play so this is very helpful.

This review just made me even more excited about this game. And I thought my personal hype meter couldn't move any higher.

Danger and inconvenience are powerful motivators in getting people to work together, to reach out and meet new people, and to actually play an MMO as if there is a desire to acknowledge the "massively" and "multiplayer" aspect of the acronym.... Removing either (or both) from a game that features any type of openworld pvp is a mistake, at least in my opinion.

Nice review! I'm a min-maxer sick bastard so here's a couple of questions:

 

1) How hard is to get the best gear for a certain spec (BIS)? Is it like other MMORPG's that you have to mix between PVP and PVE gear? Does gear make a huge difference or it's more skill based?

2) What's the impact of consumables in PVP: does food stack? can you spam healing potions? etc

Damn good preview, or information guide!

 

I wanna play it now LOL, any tips how to get an AA kr account? Specially when its now f2p.

 

Thnx in advance!

 

How are healers doing it in AA btw? I always like to make a healer, but I dont wanna depend on other players all the time, sometimes I just wanna solo, pvp or pve is that possible as a healer?

 

Can I grind dungeons, and only heal the tank etc?

1) Read through Guide to Making Endgame Gear (Item Refining, Upgrading) and you will understand more about how hard is to get the best gear, regarding PvP items check Weapons for Honor Points, there is no real PvP-PvE gear in AA, you have the option to customize the gear as you want playing with the random stats and moonstones, and gear makes a big difference.

 

2) You can check some of the food/drink buffs here Consumables - Food and Drinks, no info about how they stack tho, that is something i didn't research and i would be interested in that too.

Hello,

thanks LlexX for helping out :D!

 

@Dragnela:

Google search is all I can say. What you will find will bring you far.

 

And as a full-time healer, which is imho Devotion / Will / Artistry ( I will go into further detail about the trees soon, but for now please check the links I posted in the review ), you can always rearrange the skills to be a magic dmg-dealer/CC priest. So it's no problem to spice it up a bit, especially if you lvl up different trees, too.

 

As for dungeons, they are pretty much all tank and spank. For most dungeons one healer is enough as well as for most PvE encounters. Things like Kraken, PvP(except for 5v5 Battlegrounds) and the raids are very different however and are very dependant on your group/raid. Solo play is definitely possible, but very limited compared to your possibilites in groups you depend on and adjust yourself to.
