Dive into ArcheAge 4.0 – Maelstrom

Epic naval battles await you in Bloodsalt Bay!

The Maelstrom has arrived! We’ve sailed through Bloodsalt Bay with you, previewed the system updates in 4.0, and crafted a Gem Overhaul overview to celebrate this milestone. Now it’s time to batten down the hatches and weather the storm!

Homecoming Warrior Gear

From December 13th until January 11th (11 PM PST/2 AM UTC) open the Marketplace and grab your Homecoming Warrior’s set! There are two versions with flexibility for new and veteran players.

Under Level 50
For free, pick up your Maelstrom Beginner Bundle. Only one per account. Once unwrapped you’ll notice three tiers of wrapped, level-dependent boxes (Heroic Wrapped Greenhorn’s Bundle 10-30, Unique Wrapped Mercenary’s Bundle 30-44, Celestial Wrapped Veteran’s Bundle 44-50). After they’ve been opened you’ll have 10 days before the gear expires, so work and play hard to get to the next level tier. You’ll also receive a 7-day Mount, or Battle Pet (Mirage Bjorne Mount, Lavaspark Battle Pet, Steel Lightning Mount). Once you’ve reached 50 go for the Maelstrom Homecoming Bundle!

Level 50+
For 1 gold you can purchase the Maelstrom Homecoming Bundle once per account. Once you open it you can choose your set of Celestial gear. This gear can be upgraded with Homecoming Warrior Scraps. To earn those, you’ll need to purchase the Homecoming Warrior’s Challenge for 1 gold. This purchase can be made once per day and only once per account. Complete 1 of the 3 missions it has to earn a Homecoming Warrior Scrap. If you don’t need to upgrade this gear, you can save 25 of them and craft the Homecoming Warrior’s Lunagem Crate, which contains 2 of each of the T1 Lunagems!
