Amsterdam, The Netherlands — April 1, 2022 — ArcheAge, the epic fantasy MMORPG, developed by XLGames and published by Kakao Games, has received an extensive free content update for all players.

The update, which went live on March 31, sees the return of the previously popular Rock n Scroll Event. During this event, which is set to run until April 28, players can purchase Rubies which are limited to one per account (ArcheLife users can gain an additional Ruby for free). After acquiring these Rubies, players will receive Gem Upgrade Scrolls for every 30 minutes they are logged in. The scrolls can then be used to upgrade Rubies to a maximum of 12 times. For more details about events click here.

Another event that commenced in-game on March 31 is a Double the Gain Event which is planned to run until April 14. Within this two week period, players can receive double XP and an increase in loot drop rates, quest honor points, and vocation badges. More details on the Double the Gain Event can be found here.

Additionally, brand new content has been added to the Fresh Start Server. Players can now take up arms against the Black Dragon – a Raid Boss lurking in Red Dragon’s Keep in the Karkasse region. Driven by a lust for revenge, this formidable beast will reduce anything in its path to cinders with its fiery breath and intimidating health pool. For more details click here.

Along with the Black Dragon Raid Boss, a new Brilliant Erenor Cloak has been added. Five variants of the cloak are available which grant players considerable bonuses to stats such as maximum health, movement speed, and attack speed. The cloak can only be crafted or upgraded using the Radiant Erenor Cloak Awakening Scroll – an in-game item that has also debuted in the update. For more info read here.

Finally, Kakao Games has revealed a range of rewards items that it will be distributing to its newsletter subscribers on April 1. The rewards include a Flamedancer mount, a Bound Serendipity Stone, and several ingredients required to obtain a Brilliant Erenor Cloak.
