Archlight Rules

How Citations Work
A player will receive the amount of citations mentioned based on the offence. Citations add up and take 30 days to clear. Example if you receive 2 citations on December 5th, they will be removed off your record on January 5th. You are punished based on how many citations your account has. We ultimately however have the option to give you any term of banishment or deletion for any of these rules broken if we feel fit.
1 Citation - 3 hour ban
2 Citations - 12 hour ban
3 Citations - 24 hour ban
4 Citations - 48 hour ban
5 Citations - 1 week ban
6 Citations - 2 week ban
7 Citations - 1 month ban
8 Citations - Permanent Deletion of Account

Punishment: Character sent to Ingame Jail for 2 hours, follow by 1 citation each time caught.

4. Multi-Clienting


Multiclienting is a very dificult matter. Many players live in a house with another friend, or family member who also plays Archlight, or they wish to train multiple classes so they have the option to play any of them. Multiclienting is allowed on Archlight Online, you are allowed to have as many characters online at a time as you want. However, we have some restrictions to multiclienting to prevent abuse of certain mechanics below. Anything not listed is fine and allowed, generally the things are allow are dificult to monitor and control and thus instead of restricting the honest players, we only will punish the things listed below.
a) Dungeon Running
Using Multiclients to run dungeons or "train" on a character for the rewards is not allowed, you can only have 1 character per literal player for a dungeon Punishment: 2 Citations

b) Mage Combo
Using Multiclients to combo a player/creatures with spells or attacks.
Punishment: 2 Citations

c) Multi-Clienting during an Event or Rift Event
We will have many staff cracking down on players Multi-Clienting inside rifts or events. You cannot have more than 1 character per literal player in an event.
Punishment: 2 Citations

d) Any Multi-Client characters must be accounted for (Example: not afk in the depot all day etc). If they are not in the trainers, your house, or attended to, and just sitting in the depot, they will be kicked offline.

Punishment: Kicked offline then 1 Citation

e) Multi-Clients hunting spawns.
Every player is permitted to have a total of 3 characters per Player in a spawn. We understand that for many of you you wish to play more than 1 class, as perhaps you enjoy multiple classes, or are not sure exactly which to play and thus would like to level all until you fully decide. We allow players to run a total of 3 characters leveling in spawns. However, if you are caught using more than 3 characters hunting at one time you will receive a citation.
Punishment: Kicked offline then 1 Citation
