The Battle of Mistmerrow returns alongside a vast array of game-wide improvements

Kakao Games, Amsterdam — December 14, 2023 | Rounding out another spectacular year of ArcheAge, Kakao Games and XLGAMES plan to add even more content and features as the ground-breaking MMORPG prepares for 2024! 

Fans of ArcheAge’s Faction War are in for a festive treat with The Battle of Mistmerrow making its eagerly anticipated return as part of the December update. Get ready to storm this classic PvP instance as Nuia and Haranya factions compete to destroy Mistmerrow’s Bloodspires, while a third team of Pirates attempts to rebuild them. Joining the action will earn you Honor Points, Improved Infusion Supply Kits, and Mistmerrow Warrior Tokens.

For those who prefer PvE, this latest ArcheAge update has plenty for you, too! World bosses will now appear twice a day, spawning in one of eight locations found within Nuia and Haranya conflict zones.

After conquering one of these mighty behemoths, players will have a chance of encountering Roaring Astor, a ravaging new mythic-grade raid boss. Those who manage to survive its onslaught of devastating fire and lightning can earn themselves top-tier loot including Locked Gold Crates, Lucid World Boss Infusions, and Unstable Erenor Infusions.

ArcheAge players can also expect a wealth of game-wide improvements aimed at helping them grow their character more efficiently, exploring the depth of locations and activities ArcheAge has to offer. One way this is being improved is by making Erenor Equipment easier to acquire and upgrade, with XLGAMES preparing to share more details when the December update goes live.

In celebration of the merge, ArcheAge will be hosting an in-game event until January 11 where players have an opportunity to bag some of the best rewards they’ve ever seen, including Mythic Grade Immortal Warden Equipment. What’s more, those who tune in on Twitch from December 14 to January 11 will have a chance to win a variety of useful items in ArcheAge’s latest Twitch Drops, including Angel Wing Elixirs, Bound Labor Rechargers and even a special festive-themed decoration. 

Following the recent merger of ArcheAge and Archeage: Unchained, there’s no better time to experience this beloved MMORPG. Whether you’re a returning champion or a complete newcomer, you can enjoy one of the most storied games in the genre completely free!
