Being one of the first and possibly the best sandbox MMORPG on the internet, ArcheAge certainly lives up to its name as being the amazing fantasy version of EVE Online. The game provides a refreshing look on the MMO genre by featuring a proficiency system that offers up to 21 different vocations, labour points system, justice system and even a plethora of activities that you have never been able to enjoy in any other MMOs like music composition, sailing, paragliding and more! Let’s find out more about ArcheAge and what made it such a successful game.
Unlike the usual tank-and-spank combat, ArcheAge is an action-based game
that emphasises on a very fluid and flexible combat system. In addition to
using your character’s skills to deal damage, you’ll also need to avoid taking
too much damage (mainly skill-based ones) from the enemy. There is also a combo
system in place where using specific skills during combat will light up other
skills that you can then use to deal some extra damage. Not to mention,
characters in this game can mix and match up to 3 different skill sets from the
6 sets available, allowing for an incredible amount of customization in terms
of character skills.
In addition to combat, vocations also play a huge role in ArcheAge. The
game offers players a whopping number of 21 different vocations that do not
only include the usual professions like alchemy or leatherworking, but even
some unique ones like husbandry and farming. Through various vocations, you can
also print your own books, build your own cool-looking steampunk vehicles, and
craft and transport trade packs between cities. There’s even a vocation called
larceny where you can decrease the chances of leaving evidence behind (and
subsequently getting caught) when committing crimes.
However, the best vocation in the game is definitely “Artistry” as it
allows you to utilise the many musical instruments available in the game,
including (but not limited to) banjo, saxophone, horn, and piano, to compose
incredible music. By levelling up your artistry vocation, you’ll be able to
compose musical pieces with more notes and your character will make fewer
mistakes while playing your original music. There are just so many vocations
that a profession-obsessed player would swoon with joy while playing ArcheAge.
Due to many vocations needing quite a lot of materials and resources to
level, it is only common sense that “farmers” will pop up sooner or later to
ruin the in-game economy and destroy the purpose of levelling up a vocation in
the first place. To prevent this, ArcheAge has a labour system in place.
Vocation activities can only be performed if you have enough labour points. These
points will regenerate by itself and will only do so if you’re logged in. There
is also a limit as to how many points you can accumulate but that limit can be
increased as you level up your vocations.
Now, you may wondering… these features are good and all, but what about
the “sandbox” part that ArcheAge has been touting around? As you went on your
adventure in the game, you’ll definitely pass by some really fabulous mansions,
adorable and quaint cottages and even huge estates… well, all of these are
player-owned and designed. You can even create your own plantations or farms if
you like! With the incredible amount of furniture, plants, and other objects
that you can place on the land you bought, ArcheAge definitely brings virtual
house-building to a whole new level. The only downside? You’ll have to pay fees
regularly to maintain your ownership on the land. If you missed paying your
dues, you’ll lose your land and everything you’ve painstakingly built there.
You can buy what you need in Auction House by using ArcheAge Gold, if you don’t have enough gold on your account, you can choose a
trustworthy archeage gold seller to directly buy some.
That being said, the most interesting aspect in ArcheAge is definitely
its one-of-the-kind justice system. When players perform criminal acts such as
killing players of the same faction or stealing crops or fruits from someone else,
they will gain crime points. You can also report murders and theft done by
other players if you can find related evidence than can nail the culprit and
increase his or her crime points. When these points reached 50, these players
will be sent to trial to be either found innocent and released, or guilty and
imprisoned. The best part is that you can even gather so much notoriety to the
point where you’ll be deemed as a pirate!
All in all, ArcheAge is an incredibly in-depth MMORPG that is not only
unique but it also offers an immersive and intricate world of its own. There is
never a dull moment in this game as there are so many fun things to do besides
the usual PvE and PvP stuff including operating a hand glider, swimming and
underwater exploring, and even sailing on your boat. If you think you’d enjoy
an MMORPG that offers a crazy load of variety, then ArcheAge is most certainly
a game you wouldn’t want to miss out on!
