The Blue Salt Festival Has Arrived!

It's that time of year, heroes, when we relax on the beach, build sand sculptures, and punch abnormally large beach monsters in the face with a chicken in hand! Chicken in hand? Yeah, that's how we do it in ArcheAge! And that can only mean one thing! The Blue Salt Festival returns to Sanddeep, and beginning August 13th, you'll be able to take time off from your duties as the Chosen One, in exchange for some fun in the sun and redeemable Blue Salt Festival Coins! You can get to the festival grounds through the World Gates in Austera, Marianople, or Diamond Shores! During the Blue Salt Festival, festival period rules will be in full effect in Sanddeep, preventing PvP from happening on the festival grounds, thereby welcoming visitors of all continents! What activities can I expect at the Festival? Collect sand, assemble some sand sculptures, and help out Artist Mendelson and Vivalt with their art in the form of 5 daily Quests! Don't forget to try out Sandy's Hot Fried Chicken, too, as it wouldn't be a Festival without it! Along with the typical varieties of entertainment you can expect at a festival, be aware of an uninvited guest whose sole purpose is ruining the Blue Salt Festival! You can protect the festival from this treacherous foe at the following times and collect even more Festival Coins: EU: 2:00 PM, 7:00 PM, and 11:00 PM UTC NA: 12:00 PM, 5:00 PM, and 9:00 PM PDT What can I exchange my Blue Salt Festival Coins for?

The Ipnysh Sanctuary is Now Uncovered

The Ipnysh Sanctuary was once a magnificent place of worship built in the image of the Garden. It was built as a final resting place for the Ipnya, in hopes that upon death they would return to the Garden. Since then, this once glorious structure's walls have crumbled, glass cracked and shattered. Without a warden to maintain order, the Watchers and Guardians of the sanctuary are determined to destroy all who enter whether friend, foe, or familiar. The Garden of the Gods: Ipnysh Sanctuary update includes new gear, a brand new dungeon, and a way for heroes to channel the power of the God's themselves! Explore the Ipnysh Sanctuary with Ardios, a member of the Crimson Watch, investigating the Torch of Ipnya on Aegis Island. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6418531/a7a859e88c6503ca4d2346e6fdd604295a9a3457.png The Ipnysh Sanctuary This once beautiful place of worship for the Ipnya now lies in ruins and filled with danger. The Ipnysh Sanctuary is a Cross Server Instanced dungeon for 3 to 5 players. Take on the challenge of exploring the Sanctuary and learning what lurks beyond its doors. This dungeon does not have a gearscore requirement but you will need to be level 55+ to partake in the dungeon experience. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6418531/5101517a1c8fc3a162580d946dfadfdb11067878.png God's Authority Powers Power up, heroes! There are monsters and bosses that have the ability to drop the God's Authority, granting those who have Hero Cloaks equipped the ability to channel the power of a God of their choice. There are in total 7 Authority Skills, 4 combat skills and 3 passive effects. Choose wisely, as Combat skills only last for 3 uses and Passive effects for 18 hours. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/6418531/299678b56d9a64f8fba76657028193ae0b72c84d.png Mistsong Banquet The Mistsong Banquet is back with Season 2 and some changes.

Explore The Ipnysh Sanctuary - Coming Soon

“The Crimson Watch has sent me to Aegis Island to investigate the links between the large Ipnysh structure there and the Ipnya’s Blessing monument in the Eastern Hiram Mountains. I think I’ve made a breakthrough, but I need your help Adventurer! You have forged your path through hardship and no doubt that there will be plenty more hardship ahead. Find me at Aegis Island, brave one!” – Ardios Explore the Secrets That Lie Within On the 13th of August, both ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained will receive the Garden of the Gods: The Ipnysh Sanctuary update! This update brings to light the fruit of the Crimson Watch investigations into the monuments scattered around Auroria that resemble those created by the Ipnya and reveals to us The Ipnysh Sanctuary, a cross-server dungeon fraught with dangerous creatures and corrupted wardens. Can you bring a balance between the light and the dark? Alongside the sanctuary, comes the second iteration of the Mistsong Banquet, where the rounds are more difficult and the beings inside hungrier than ever! Be aware of the shores of Growlgate Isle, fellow outlaws. There have been reports of sharkers lurking and rumors have flown that they offer a way back to the mainland. Disgusting! The Patch Notes will follow soon where you can feast your eyes upon them!


Event Timer Changes for EU Servers

As a result of the feedback we've received from you, our dedicated community, regarding the event times on our EU servers, the ArcheAge Team has decided to move all event timers 2 hours backward from their original times. This update is scheduled to take place on July 30th during the regular weekly maintenance. This change will affect all server events, World Bosses, and instance availability. This, however, doesn't affect reset times for quests and events on the EU servers for both ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained. Dailies and events will still reset at 12AM UTC, while soft resets such as the Login Tracker and the Blue Salt Bond reset will be at 10PM UTC. These changes will not affect the NA server or their current event timers. However, be assured, the Team will continue to review your feedback. Thanks for continuing to make ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained better! Now go kick some World Bosses' butt!
