ArchLauncher Improvements

16 August 2018 (03:33) by Gamemaster Knighter

We have made big strides further improving our ArchLauncher, a new version has been released on the website, simply uninstall your old one and install the new one (in the near future, we will also be giving away free points and codes via our launcher :)

Improvements to New Launcher
-Changed default installation directory to Local App Data folder for preventing administrator right issues (where hitting play after updating would not do anything, and other issues)
-Fixed problems with client not opening/working due to wrong read/write/administrator permissions
-Faster unzipping of new client downloads

Our 3rd Anniversary will kickoff on with Patch 14.0.3 on August 11st (Patch 14.0.3) at 9:00am PST / 12:00pm EST / 18:00 CEST

For those of you who dont know, Archlight First Launched on August 10th of 2015. It's been a crazy 3 year ride now, starting as a tiny project, where left right and center we heard people tell us we would never have more than 10 people online, then 30 people online, then 50... then 75... then 100... then 200. Well, 3 years later, here we are. A strong and passionate team behind what has now become the largest Non-RL Tibia Based Server on Otservlist for over a year, and what has quickly become a game of it's own. We couldn't be here without the 3 years of player support, whether that means donating towards our project, allowing our team to work, improve, and expand this project on a full-time basis! Or telling your friends, playing yourselves, and ultimately being apart of our growing community!

The 3rd Anniversary events will last until August 25th! However the Limited Editions with a quantity attached will only be available until they sell out!

As a free gift from the Archlight Team for our Third Anniversary, we will be giving EVERY account on Archlight 1 week of FREE Premium. Enjoy from us <3

Aside from free premium for a week, our anniversary will come with 7 New House Cosmetic Furnitures, A 3rd Anniversary Backpack, A new Anniversary Aura and an Anniversary Companion!

All Limited Editions will be added to your account panel once obtained - This will be given back to you automatically every Era, forever. Limited Editions will never be obtainable again once removed or sold out (see items that have a limited quantity available).

7 of these 10 will be obtainable freely in-game and without a way to obtain them by donating. 3 of these will be added to the Living Token Shop.

ArchBot Fixes & Improvements
-Bug fixes in Stats, leaderboards and dungeon windows
-Bug fixes in bot (healer, quick buttons)
-Implemented directional spell casting for spell rotation bot
-Improvements target selection in auto targeter bot
-Added custom delay option to auto change gold in bot
-Deleted some unused bot options like auto change ring, creature alert
-Added new quick spells in bot to monk and guardian

Rift Changes
Rift Power Tiers Changed. This is due to the higher power that everyone naturally has now with the new outfits and mounts power bonuses.
0-2000 > 0-3000
2000-3500 > 3000-4500
3500-4500 > 4500-5500
4500+ > 5500+

Customize Your UI & Cleared Up Options Panel
In this last Client Release we added a Menu button now where all UI Icons will be. Now, we have also added the functionality to choose which UI buttons to display ON your UI, or leave OFF your UI (to reduce clutter) and instead just have them in the Menu Interface (For rarely used UI icons etc).
Additionally we have overhauled the Options Panel, Cleaned it up and added additional categories for maximum customizability of our client!

Quality of Life Improvements
You can now simply right click a Mining, Fishing, Woodcutting node and Watering/Harvesting Crops with the respective gathering tool in your backpack to gather it. You can also do this with a skinning knife, however as the body decays, the items will appear on the body instead (if you dont have auto-loot on).
Sliders added to outfitter tab.
Have a weak PC that constantly drops frames or crashes the client when your screen has too many animations showing? Dont want constant spam on your screen when you're just casual hunting? Now you can pick and choose what your client displays! Giving you the ability to turn off other player animations, effects, creature animations, effects, and more!
Magic Fields will now no longer block pathfinder, IE the targetting in the bot wont go haywire, however, they we modified them to ensure they still block moving players for PvP

Dungeon Changes
All Normal Dungeon Bosses will now force respawn (To prevent people from blocking the boss respawn)
Doors have been added to Lions Pride Dungeon to ensure the boss cannot be lured out.

Arena Creature Changes
Increased Damage of Arena Creatures by 25%, Increased their Health by 25%
Arena Bosses have had their damage lowered by 20%, as we feel the jump from waves 9, 19, 29, 39, 49 to their boss is too large a damage jump.

Firestorm Event Changes
Time between each firestorm wave lowered from 4s > 3s
Time for players to react to a fireball tile from 2s > 1s

Misc Changes
Cost to enter Pits of Archlight lowered from 100,000 to 20,000. This is because you need to re-enter multiple times (after killing each boss).
Prepared Onions recipe added to Cooking.

2x Sunflowers!

06 August 2018 (22:58) by Gamemaster Knighter

We have DOUBLED the amount of sunflowers players receive from Dungeons Completed until the end of the Florisa Event. A little <3 from Archlight Staff. Enjoy!

Florisa Summer Event

04 August 2018 (04:06) by Gamemaster Knighter

Florisa Summer Event & Race

For thousands of years, the sunflower goddess looked over Archlight, blessing it's environments with fruitful and abundant nature of crops. After a 6 month battle with Serandiel, her staff was destroyed into multiple pieces, however, during it's destruction, a spell was cast on the staff itself, creating hundreds of copies of the staff all which we're shattered moments later. Recreate her staff and use it for your own power.

For the Duration of the Florisa Event, players will obtain a sunflower as an additional reward every time they complete a Greater Dungeon. 

These sunflowers can be given to Florisa's Servant through the portal in the depot to obtain multiple different rewards.

Florisa's Servant will offer the following rewards to you for turning in Sunflowers.

Sunflower Jar - 10 Sunflowers

(Contains Random Items: All 3 Pieces of Florisa's Staff, Archlight Token's, Legendary Key Shards, Upgrade Stones, Stat Stones, and more small tier rewards!)

Golden Wings - 250 Sunflowers

Yalahari Effect - 100 Sunflowers


*New* Mount of Florisa - 300 Sunflowers

T3 Mount - +1.5% hp/mana

Living Tokens will also be able to be exchanged for 50 Sunflowers from the Living Token Exchanger.

Regarding Patron

03 August 2018 (09:33) by Gamemaster Knighter

~Regarding Patron~

After a lot of discussion and careful consideration, we have decided that we will NOT be doing Patron Duplicate Spawns. Initially, our goal was to make a mutually enjoyed benefit (Patron) in the sense that some would pay for it, to enjoy its benefits, and non-patron players would ALSO benefit as their spawns would now be less crowded as well. However clearly, this benefit was not seen or felt worth it for non-donors. However, we will be keeping the duplicate spawns, and instead, players can pay IN-GAME gold to access these for 24 hours at a time. This amount of gold is undecided yet, however the lower portals will cost less than the higher ones. 

Patron will likely remain if we decide to repurpose it, which we are considering making it similar to a "humble bundle". If you dont know what that is, it's a monthly box of random rewards, each month different, additionally you would also receive the Gold Title on Discord.

We will post any information about this if we go that route.

More info about this event will be posted on August 3rd.

New Solo & Duo Arena Released - Possibly Teamboss Arena as well
Pre-Era Post
This has been a major talking point for our development team - how can we make the Arena more interesting, challenging and engaging while also keeping its core principles and ideas in tact. Well, we're excited on the following new changes to the Archlight Arena!
- Solo, Duo and Team Arena all have their own 23 hour cooldown - 1kk to enter, This entry fee goes up every week by 10% automatically
- Every wave will spawn 5 creatures off this list, each wave the creatures spawned will have 20% more damage and 8% more health compounding.
- Duo Arena the creatures will by default start at 50% more health and damage.
- Every 10th wave is a Boss Wave. The next wave will not start until the boss is killed.
- Highest wave is recorded and on leaderboards (Solo, Duo and Team records)
- Anytime you join the arena after your first time, you will start 10 waves back from your last wave you reached. So if for example last time you got to wave 27, you'd now start at wave 17 the next time you do your arena. This doesn't apply for Duo or Teams only Solo.
- You receive Arena Bags based on the Arena Wave you get to. Example: If you died in Wave 23, you would get 23 Arena Bags (Will be same contents as Lord Ritual Bags)
- Duo arena's both players will receive the amount of Arena Bags based on the wave they get to.
Team Boss Arena's will behave very similarly, however, be focused on bosses!

Misc Changes
Ability to exchange grips with weapon exchange tokens to other weapons, and other weapons to grips.
You can no longer join a dungeon when you are not in a Protection Zone.
Ability to view other players mana bars added to options list. We decided this was a much needed addition to make a more fair playing field for health users, as they essentially could not view the "health" of mages, which is mana.
Removed Guild Boss Rooms that said "Coming Soon" as we implemented Guild Ritual Bosses long ago and forgot to remove these rooms.
Shop Changes
You now have a chance to obtain up to 6 Mini-Crates instead of only 3 when you open a Profession Crate. 
Added flamesteed, 3 new toads (for the new task), and 1 missing outfit to Accessory Bonuses
Added grips (rmc costs 4 tokens, you never specified the price)
Wool, cucumber, tomato added to the prepared meals as they were the only ones missing 
Added winter king taming item for 1 cosmetic token
Disabled barbarian bloodwalkers and deeplings as they're not in game anymore
Added 5000 water guardians task.
Players will receive 5 / 10 / 20 / 30 Power per Addon Set/Outfit, Mount or Wings based on it's tier.

Bot fixes/improvements
Fixed a bug for the bot quick switch window
Autotarget improvements in target selection algorithm
Added autotarget danger mode for ranking targets
Spellrotation bot now turning towards creatures when saying wave spells
Added ancient and absorb summon spells to monk quick buttons
Added second rune option to health runes
