Introduction ----
As many you know it now costs Jewls to play Archeage. I'm quite happy to pay for a game that is this awesome, but it did cause some trouble since I'm away from Japan right now. It's also going to cost you more than what you would pay in Japanese Yen.
 
Here are some steps, I might translate them with pictures later on. But if you're playing JP Archeage I assume you can understand some Japanese anyway, so this shouldn't be overly difficult.
 
* A Japanese Mobile is not required with this method, but it uses a third party, JPCODE4U. 


READ FIRST -  You should use Web Money rather than NET CASH, unless you find a cheaper NET CASH pre-paid card provider.
 

 ( A ) Web Money Method (Cheaper)

A. Kampi suggests searching auction sites for a webmoney card as they can be obtained paying only ~10% markup.

B. Merlinus notes that you can obtain a Web Money card from here. 

 

Next, proceed to (1) of this guide.

 

* If you find a cheaper way please post here.
 

 ( B ) NET CASH (Use Web Money if you can)

 
1) Register a NET CASH account here.
2) Acknowledge the confirmation email.
3) Go to JPCODE4U and purchase the desired amount of pre-paid NET CASH card.

4) Proceed to (1) of this guide.

 
Once you recieve the code (they sent it to me in about 30 minutes, but they do say it can take up to 3 days):
 
You can either login and add the balance to your netcash account by going to NET CASH IDを登録する, or you can use the prepaid code directly for JEWL payment on the Archeage website.

 
  ( 1 ) Obtaining Jewls
 
1) Go the Archeage  website and click JEWL 購入 (login is necessary)
2) Enter your birth date
3) Scroll down, if you agree to the conditions select 同意する and click JEWLを購入する
4) Select amount of desired JEWLS (you need to decide how many days gametime you want to buy, I bought 90 days for 5000 JEWLS) and click 支払い方法へ.

 

If Using Web Money:

5) Click Web Money, click 購入手続きへ

6) Enter your prepaid card number and click お支払いを行こう

7) Follow through with the process and proceed to "Purchasing Gametime".


If using NETCASH:

5) Click NET CASH, click 購入手続きへ
6 Option A ) If you didn't add the prepaid code to your account, enter it in the first box and proceed
6 Option B ) If you did, then enter your username, password and the captcha phrase and proceed with ログイン

 

Next, proceed to ( 2 ) of this guide.

 

 ( 2 ) Purchasing game time


First click here to go to the store and view the available options.


1) Select the desired product and click カートへ
2) Select アイテムを交換
3) Follow through and your account will be active with your newly purchased gametime.

 

* You can also access the item store in-game by clicking the ArchAgeアイテムモール icon or pressing (N).
 
Let's enjoy Archeage! I'm playing on GENE, my name is 中石永次.

 

 ( Unrelated ) VPN - you need this to play Archeage

If you have difficulty with SoftEther then you can check out FlyVPN (but it's a paid service). It works well and is easy to use however.

Hello, I wanted to ask how you created your ID because for me, it will not let me go to the registration page, even when I try to use an open ID. I thought this might be because I'm in the states but I'm not sure if that is the case now. Thank you!!

Hey there, you will need to use a VPN. (i.e. FlyVPN, or the free service (SoftEther) offered by the University of Tsukuba, Japan.)

Yeah I have been reading these forums for a while, but saw the discussion in the post about this going paid and all the confusion. If people understand even a little bit of Japanese it's not so difficult, and I think the game is well worth the money.

I'd recommend CN-USA.

 

The 5000 JPY netcash card on jpcode4u costs 82.90 USD, which is ridiculously overpriced.  (1 USD=99 JPY, you can do the math)

You can buy 5000 point Webmoney card  on CN-USA for 69 USD. It's still fairly expensive, but it's comparably cheaper.
