Today’s ArcheAge The update adds a gate to prevent instance cancellations, adds the Lutesong Cherry Blossom Festival, improves faction activity standards and quests, and adds new content to the fourth new server.
One of the more annoying things a fellow player can do is repeatedly cancel instance matchmaking requests. So the ArcheAge Team added a new gate that makes instances temporarily unavailable for a while if someone repeatedly cancels. This should hopefully make things run more smoothly and reduce player frustration.
Also included in this update is a content release for the fourth new server. Content has been gradually added, and this time, Charybdis, Glorious Lunagem, and Honor Point Lunagem T5, T6 (Luna Charm Rank 4-6) will open. They also improved the faction activity standards to encourage the exile content. Adjustments vary by server to suit each server’s conditions.
Quests have been given a bit of a polish, with several improvements to the Diamond Shores Guard, Guardian of Sungold Fields, Guardian of Reedwind, and Guardian of Exeloch weekly quests, and increased rewards for each upon completion.
This update also launches the Lutesong Cherry Blossom Festival. Villanelle will become a peace zone for the festival, which will run until May 5th. You can accept a Cherry Blossom Festival quest, other quests like Keeping Cherry Rice Wine, Lute Song Pink, Sweet Celebration, Honey Bee Hunter and more. These daily and event quests give you rewards in the form of Festival Coins, which you can exchange for rewards. All festival quests are available for all characters level 10 and above. They reset every day at 9pm Pacific Time
The update also fixes a number of issues, including one where players weren’t receiving XP from defeating Black Thorn Prison monsters, and another where the quest alert window wasn’t updating properly or wasn’t updating.
