For those of you that are having a hard time getting land in ArcheAge, or those of you just looking for something new to do, get ready! November 4th in the magic day. The Conquest of Auroria opens and adds a whole new continent comprised of six zone, a new dungeon, new seige weapons, and 30% percent more claimable housing spots throughout 4 of the 6 new zones.

These 4 "claimable" zones will also be able to be ruled by Guilds. From the official post:

To claim one of the new zones, a guild leader must cleanse its Archeum Lodestone with a new Purifying Archeum trade pack. Cleansing the Lodestone designates them as Lord and gives them power over the zone’s land. The Lord’s guild may then construct a castle to surround the Lodestone, protecting it from would-be usurpers. (The designs for individual castle sections can be purchased on Mirage Isle.) Each Lord collects property taxes in the form of gold from all individuals who build in their zone and can also destroy any dwellings erected within their castle’s walls.

Periodically, a siege declaration item for each zone will appear on the Auction House and the highest bidder will win the rights to siege that specific zone’s Lodestone at a designated time. If victorious, that guild’s leader will claim the title of Lord, all of the accompanying powers, and become the new owner of the zone’s castle (or what remains of it!).

New vehicles, such as a farm wagon and a submarine, will be added and Serpentis will open. This new, 10-person dungeon awaits those powerful enough to enter. Check out the lore behind the content additions on the official ArcheAge website.

Hear ye, hear ye! Thou may claim thine plot of land on but one condition; thou art required to giveth a handjob to the master of the guild that doth rule the land on which thou wishest to lay claim to.

In the case that thou doth refuse to perform said handjob, thou art free to be sodomized and haveth then no land and an arse which is sore as the day is long.

Why pay for Patron when the APEX is dirt cheap in the AH! This player run economy is all messed up on most servers. Not sure how Trion will make out, but someone isn't doing their math when APEX is so cheap.

Either way I am pretty much done with this game. No new content is enough to come back to such a poorly designed, empty world MMO. I tried to overlook some of it's flaws but the mechanics are clumsy, along with the combat and the UI is ancient and too limited.

I still dont f.ing understand why APEX isnt like 1000g, the gold flow in the game is soo f.ed up, and apex on my server is 85-90g, Wich anyone can get in under 2hours. The game economy is pretty F.d up.

Sorry but I dont sympathize. You REALLY DONT need land to make thousands of gold, it's just this big illusion that having a large farm is going to net some huge profits. I have a main and 5 alts and none of them had problems finding 8x8 plots even on the crowded servers. That was more then enough to cut the costs of my trade pack runs to make plenty of mats for my crafting which is a stupid amount of profit. Unless you really just want to sink all your time in planting/harvesting there are plenty of other options.

november 4th.. lol..

What a d**k move, Let me elaborate

Most people who purchased patron sometimes from the beginning of the launch to near end of the week. After the launch we were promised shorter que times in line if you were patron subscriber (which i believe i was bunch of bs still had to wait 11 hours to get in) that being said their first patron monthly services ends near at the end of this month (me as an example)

Now the game offers that only paying subscribers are allowed to claim land which a huge benefit to the game if you were to purchase said subscription. But knowing that there was a such a huge influx in patron customers they would expect to think to add more land more quickly.. As a patron subscriber a full month went by for me and I didn't get the chance to claim any land other than a 8x8; now knowing that most of the people that is just trying out the patron subscription that bought it early in the release runs out anytime this week or next week; they would require to pay another month of subscription to claim a land..

trion go to hell
