after all the years I've been waiting for ArcheAge I finally got the chance to play it. I am playing the game since about march and have had a great deal of fun with it. Because Trion is now finally starting to get at least some information out, I decided to write a overview about the game for all the brand new players that are becoming more and more interested into the game.
This is a try to get rid of all the misinformation about the game and to educate new group members. This just isn't a detailed guide about every gameplay aspect, it is meant for people who don't have a chance to play it but nevertheless want to know what this game is about.
I am currently enjoying the game, even though it has flaws I am going to point out, and that means that everything in this assessment will have a positive bias. Although this is a personal overview, I will try to be as objective as possible, but as most of you know this is pretty hard, so please excuse me if there is anything wrong.
Also, as the game progresses and more updates are incoming, I will try to keep this evaluate as updated as possible. Items can change and I will acknowledge that. Same goes for commpleteness: I will update this assessment with more and more content and even re-write certain parts depending on feedback.
Another important point: I don't claim to know everything, I tend to make mistakes as any other human being. In the event you find any flaws, please point them out and I will change the overview.
