[ArcheAge 3.5] – Rough Translation of Patch Notes

Some of you may want the full patch notes of this update. This is it, although some parts are going to be incorrect.

I have excluded some things, such as PCBang, Marketplace and KR’s Patron status, since they do not apply to our version.

Note that there will be some mistakes. I aim to try to make it as accurate as possible.

Text in red mean that I am unsure of the translation. Some are in Korean still since I have no clue what they are saying in those.

This is a very rough translation, despite the time spent. If you have any suggestions for what needs to be fixed (especially in red + Korean), please comment. If any need to be modified that are already in English and not red, you can also comment there, and I’ll put it in an orange color until I have it confirmed, which then it will become green. (Let’s collaborate, please!)

[ArcheAge 3.5] – What Posts Do You Want To See?

I’ve been pushing out posts about 3.5 the last few days, but I’m curious: What things specifically would you guys want to know?

I, and some others, will be working on translating the Korean patch notes.

Comment below, and I’ll try to group some suggestions into several posts 🙂 (Note that there are bound to be inaccuracies from interpretation, so please do not use this blog as the primary source for information, until I post stuff that’s on our PTS/live version.)

Questions on other posts I’ll try to ASAP.

I have done a rough translation of the patch notes, available here.

[ArcheAge 3.5] – Mana Wisps

Mentioned at the end of the last post, mana wisps are no longer regularly used in update 3.5. However, if you do have some in 3.5, you can exchange them for Illustrious to Ayanad sealed items.

This post will explain how to exchange wisps, and how many wisps you need to do that.

(Salvage Forges for homes no longer function. You can break them down into Thunderstruck Trees, keep it in your house as decoration, or vendor it… I don’t recommend selling it to a vendor though.) Continue reading

[ArcheAge 3.5] – Obsidian Gear Crafting Changes

With the removal of Mana Wisps from the game, crafting Obsidian gear has had its crafting recipes changed. It is replaced by a Sealed regular crafting weapon (Illustrious-Erenor).

Unlike the crafted weapons (Illustrious-Erenor), Obsidian gear still has grade inheritance, so if you decide to use a Divine Obsidian Shortspear to craft an Ominous Obsidian Shortspear, it will still retain the Divine grade (or have an extremely small chance to go up a grade).  This could be a possible reason why the regrade rates (as seen in this post) for Obsidian gear are lower than Illustrious-Ayanad and other weapons, because Obsidian gear will inherit the grade the material weapon was, unlike Illustrious-Erenor’s grade requirement for crafting up. (They made it easier to regrade successfully for Illustrious to Ayanad so it’s easier to upgrade.)

Without further ado, let’s look at what crafting recipe changes that have occurred for Obsidian gear in 3.5! Continue reading
