New Member
Greetings, this thread is intended as a logical collection of new and existing information relating to ArcheRage, laid out in a manner that will hopefully make it easy to read and understand.

If there are any mistakes, or if you would like to suggest additional content for the guide, please let me know.

1. Download and Installation
  • Register for a game account here.
    • Google translate doesn't play nice with this page, using it will prevent registration, the boxes, in order from top to bottom are username, email, password, confirm password.
  • Download the client via torrent.
2. Converting from Russian to English
ArcheRage is based upon Russian game files and as such uses the Russian client, fortunately for most gameplay we can change to English, however, some activities such as the use of the auction house, only function in Russian.
  • Launch the game client once, this will auto-generate config files for ArcheRage
  • Navigate to /My Documents/ArcheAge/
  • Open system.cfg in a text editor
  • Append `locale = "en_us"` to the end of the file
  • Save the config and relaunch your client.
When dealing with the auction house it is unfortunately required that you use Russian item names, a recommended plugin for the chrome browser is the Archeage DB plugin, which will show item names in English and Russian concurrently.

8. Starting out

Probably the single most important thing to know when starting out on the ArcheRage server is that most forms of labor consumption are disabled until level 52, this means no trade runs, no farming and no resource processing. Proficiencies that I am aware of that work pre-52 are fishing (Not sports fishing), Larceny and processing resources with Blue Salt Knives (I.E Turning wheat into ground grain). You are also able to consume labor identifying armor/weapon/accesories however this will only consume small amounts until reaching Auroria. As such, these will be your main labour dumps pre-52. (Roughly estimated level 52 is approximately 10 hours of gameplay, if that.)

The fact the server features a 5x experience rate means that most forms of questing are worthless, as the number of "levelling quests" far exceeds the number required to hit cap.

Follow your green quests, performing local kill quests if the area you're in begins to exceed your own level, green quests provide great XP and generous gilda star rewards which will come in useful later.

Around the level 45 mark it is worth looking into performing the Hasla and Karkasse gear questlines, these will provide you entry-level end-game gear, farming at level 55 in the sets provided by these quests is entirely viable, albeit ill-advised. This thread from the official forums covers how to complete the quest chains and where to find them.

Chances are you've now got to the point in your green questline where you're required to kill Ocleera, the most common time you'll see Ocleera being killed is at daily reset (10PM GMT) the NPC spawns in western diamond shores, and requires a raid to kill, if you get the opportunity make sure to tag along to progress your quest.

As anyone with experience on live will know, the 50+ grind is, well exactly that, most of your experience will come from grinding mobs, or performing labor tasks - So get down to the grind, and enjoy :)
