… Or is it Really a Farewell?

Sometimes, I just can’t make a goodbye final.

Hello ArcheAge friends – it’s been a little over six months since I’ve posted on Percy Meets ArcheAge.

After some time off, I’ve reflected on my experiences in-game and what feedback (both positive and negative) I’ve gotten on my blog.

Although I’ve been out of the loop of what’s been going on in ArcheAge, I’ve tried to follow what Korea is doing every now and then, and ask my friends how they are doing with the game. I miss playing ArcheAge; no doubt about that!

Recently, I’ve been chatting with one of ArcheAge’s former developers who has enjoyed my blog while I still was updating it regularily. Since then, I’ve been wanting to really learn Korean so I am able to talk to him in his native language. We may meet up in real life some time, whether if it’s me visiting Korea, or the developer coming to America.

Farewell, ArcheAge

It may have seemed apparent that I wasn’t posting for a while. Got pretty busy in real life, and have finished most of my “goals” in game.

I’ve had a wonderful time playing this game even though my character will never hit the 6,000 Equipment Points mark, haha. Clipper harpooning and other mischief with friends made the game enjoyable. But with my loss of interest in the game, I believe that it is time to pack my bags and move on.

That being said, I am grateful for this game to spark my curiosity in the Korean language, which I have plans to continue to study as I’d like to translate The Fir and the Hawk novel I bought, the story on which ArcheAge is based upon. I also plan to visit Korea once I know enough (and when I save up money for that trip 🙂 )

Seeing the faults in ArcheAge made me want to develop a game of my own, in the future. I am currently working on the story, combat, items, maps and races of my game’s world, which does not have an official title as of now (I am thinking of The Laikan Project for it though). For my game, I wish a huge open world revolving around the sandbox play style, while providing enough content, through means of exploration, extensive quest lines with choices that can affect the outcomes, and incentives for PvP/PvE.

Going back to ArcheAge, I’ll most likely hop on time to time for the next few months, and by the beginning of next year, I’ll be out.

Again, I’d like to thank those in game and those who read the blog for making the game enjoyable and a bit more interesting. As much as I’d like to stay and play for a while more, I feel that there are bigger things in life calling for me in my future. College is coming up soon, and then work or some entrepreneurial venture after that.

If you’d still like to communicate with me, you can message me at percymeetsarcheage@gmail.com (through email or Google Hangouts!). Thank you all for the fun! ❤ Even as the years go on, I’ll remember these 2-3 years as some of the more interesting ones, with all the different people I’ve met.

Farewell, ArcheAge! Good luck for what may come your way in the future!

I’m Learning Korean! plus a few other things

Hey everyone!

I’ve recently started playing AA again (about 1.5 months ago) so I decided I’ll tell y’all what’s been up.

  • I’m learning Korean (finally)! As of right now, I’ve only gotten down about half of the alphabet, but I hope that within a year, I won’t have to use Google Translate as much. (In other words – more accurate info!)
  • Additionally, I’m trying to hop on ArcheAge Japan to see if I can find interesting statistics or people there. Oh, and I’ll tackle the Japanese language after I can comprehend Korean okay-ish.
  • One big thing I’m going to do is to switch my education from public to self-studies/homeschooling. With this, I can delve deeply into subjects I’m interested in! I am hoping that I can do ArcheAge-related projects as well! (This will be for the last two years of high school!) I’m doing research on it now, and how to withdraw myself from the public school system. I think it will be great!
  • Going back to Korean language-learning, I have read your comments on that post I published a while back 🙂 I’ll try out the things you’ve recommended.
  • If anyone is interested in mentoring/tutoring me in Korean, it will be much appreciated 🙂 Penpals and Skype friends are welcome too! If you play ArcheAge as well, that’s even better!
  • Aaaaand going back to the homeschooling thing… I hope I can go to one of the PAX East events to use my growing journalism skills :3
  • And finally, for ArcheAge-related things to put on my blog… Since I’ve practiced using InDesign enough now, I think I’m ready to launch some kind of PDF guide, or eBook 😀 I’ll be adding more guides over the summer, as well as updating information on the ArcheAge Gamepedia (which is a big fixer-upper). If you have any suggestions for guides (related to crafting, leveling, money-making etc), feel free to comment them ^^

One final question for y’all: How have you been these past few months (IRL or in-game)? I hope it’s been going well 🙂

I’ll be sure to post when I reach a milestone in my Korean language-learning adventure, write up a guide, find some interesting info from the Korean site, or get into the JP version… I forsee that this year will be filled with fun, and I can’t wait to get started on all of this!

Starting On a Different Path

Yesterday, I began playing ArcheAge again. I’ve been playing it sparingly, but after a month and a half, I returned to join the festivities that can only happen in here. My FFXIV subscription had ran out, and there’s no way in-game to pay for the subscription. I’ll stay on AA until I find some way to pay for FFXIV again.

I’ve changed up Percy’s look. It was mainly the hair I wanted to change, but I went and edited her face a little too. This was since I bought one of those coronets off of the Auction House. I’ve been waiting to buy one for a while, haha!


This shot took forever to take.

It surprised me when I saw how good it came out! I tanned Percy again, and reshaped her face. I aimed for a cherry blossom pink for the hair.


Yes, she is still a Harani.

Additionally, I’m going to roll healer.

In FFXIV, I rolled a healer and I’m lovin’ it! So I’m going to roll as one here as well 🙂


I need to work on getting a better shield for Percy (preferably a Divine Ayanad or Epic Obsidian) and tiering up the club. Or tier up the club and sell it and then use the funds for buying an Epic club. I’m still working it out.

After that, a Divine Obsidian/Ayanad will be my next goal. How am I going to make that much gold? I have no clue. (Yet I have enough gold to buy costumes… Hmm…)

I found a nice club skin too… “Pantheon’s Judgement” – the club skin released with the small Inquisitor Robes pack that was on sale for only a weekend.


It looks pretty neat, but I’m gonna save up for a nicer club before I image that on. The chances of finding that skin again are low.

Anything new going on with you guys? Any cool plans or events you have in mind?

I want to do a giveaway, but I have nothing to give away, unfortunately. And if I did, it’d have to be on the Nazar server, since I don’t have anything like APEX to give 😦

Maybe in the future I’ll join the Creator’s program and give away codes from there. But for now, I’ll keep on pushing out stuff.

Take care everyone!


Back… Again!

I sincerely apologize for having neglected my blog… Was busy over the past few months with the guild and in real life! I was also playing other games like Blade & Soul  and Black Desert Online.

Not much has changed since the last time I posted an entry but I can assure you that you will be able to see more posts during this summer (not like how I promised last summer, haha) since I figured out what I should be posting and what not.

Anyway, let’s go onward of what has went on during my five months of inactivity!
