Booster Packs + 9.3.0 Teaser26 September 2017 (02:04) by Gamemaster Knighter
Archlight Online's Second Anniversary
We have been getting asked since last christmas when we will add in something like bundles again, so we have brought in 3 different tiers of Booster Packs. We thought Archlights Second Anniversary would be the perfect time to bring that in. For those of you who dont know, we recently had our Second Anniversary of our Archlight Launch 2 years ago (This is not including the 1.5 months of our first beta). We've come a long way and are happy to say we've had 99.98% uptime over those 2 years. And 99.98% of our days developing on Archlight ;). It has Been quite a ride, we're all very excited to see where we are in another 2 years! This backpack will not be added to the promotion shop, and you will receive this back each era, we want this to remain something exclusive to those who we're around for our second anniversary! This was custom sprited by our talented sprited Erick Etchebeur. This Anniversary Backpack will come free with every Dragon Booster Pack.
Our 2nd Anniversary Backpack has the following stats:
+21 Skill Value
3% Monster Essence Find
Many have been asking Era after Era for us to bring back Bundles, so we have finally brought them back as Booster Packs. You can now purchase Three different Booster Packs from the Donate Tab (Select Booster Packs instead of Donation Points). We have released 3 different tiers of Booster Packs including -
Gold Booster Pack
Mythril Booster Pack
Dragon Booster Pack.

Patch 9.1.020 September 2017 (09:27) by Gamemaster Knighter
Coming Saturday September 23rd - 12:00pm PST / 3:00pm EST / 21:00 CEST
"We want crafting to feel like a true profession, this is your characters talent and his means of life. Not simply, okay I need to grind up this shitty system just to craft 1 thing I can use at the very end. We want crafting to become a dynamic part of the economy, and not just something you need a player for in the extreme late game and one time."
We now feel we have hit that goal, and will be releasing the completely revampped Fishing, Mining, Farming, Skinning, Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Tanning, Jewelcrafting and Cooking Professions.
A description on how each profession works, and their benefits to you, your guild, or the trading market will be released before Saturday.
10 New Sets Released, 9 obtained via crafting, 1 obtained from quest chain.
New Endgame Team Quests
One thing we really wanted to push for this era is more endgame quests, but not just simple run, kill, grab reward and done. We wanted to add in more unique "story" driven quests, that have a real unique feel to their environment, and the challenges and trials they present. These two quests hit all of those goals right on the fucking head. We are extremely excited on these two new quests we are releasing, one being more based on multiple different boss fights, and one being more based on puzzle solving, but both giving exceptionally valuable rewards.
Halls of Darksteel Quest Released
Rewards: Darksteel Set and Weapons
Pits of Archlight Quest Released
Rewards: Unlimited Runes (Avalanche, Great Fireball, Destroy Field, Firebomb and Magic Wall)
72 Hour Quest Boxes
Now every "story" quest on Archlight will have a repeatable 72-hour cooldown quest box. These quest boxes will drop the most rare things on Archlight, and garanteed. There are 6 tiers of story quest boxes, the lowest tier being in the simplest/easiest story quests, 6 being in the hardest/most dificult. All tiers can contain any of, but not limited to, the following rares - Stat Stones (primarily only in the low tier boxes), Large Stat Stones, Legendary Soils, Rune Soils, Soul Soils, Bone + Cloud Keys, Shining Oils and Repolishing Oils. Each box will also garantee gold and archlight tokens with one of the above rewards. What this means is you will be rewarded with a very valuable chest box for completing story quests you have already completed. This will also allow newer players to join in on quests with experienced vets.
Greater Dungeons will give you a different tier of chest based on the power rating you complete that dungeon at, increasing your chance at rarer rewards based on the difficulty of the Greater Dungeon completed. For every 200 team average power you will receive 1 higher tier of box.
Event, Raid* and most story quest bosses will now all drop their own Boss Dust. These Boss Dusts can be used for many different crafting recipes and will cause a great benefit to kill certain bosses for epic craftings.
Raids will be becoming their own events like Abaldar and Dracona.
Fixed up flashing animation on new outfits while mounted.
Fixed up lifeleech enchantment making it now usable.
New Dungeon Window Implemented
Coming Soon After..
Retro Tibia Outfits!!
Cause...... why not.
Archlight In-Game Shop!!
New PvP + PvP-E System
Many have requested a pvp system that truely rewards and punishes players. So we took to the drawing boards and started planning a system that would reward pvp, punish losers, but also not be abusive. We will be posting the full details of this system in a patch teaser as well.
We are hoping to drop this in the next sizable patch after 9.1.0
