Welcome

Adventure in an open-ended MMORPG freed from predefined paths and progression. Build massive castles and lay claim to lands whose riches fuel a deep, player-driven economy. Band together to protect your fortune in epic siege battles and naval combat – or live the life of an outlaw, prying glory and coin from foes left in your wake.

RACES & FACTIONS

ArcheAge is home to four major races: spiritual Nuians and secretive Elves share the western continent, while the nomadic Firran and cunning Harani inhabit lands to the east. Loose ties connect the neighboring races, but allegiances are fluid, forever complicated by the whims of pirate factions sailing, trading, and pillaging at will.

  • We fear no death.

    Nuian

    Called the Conquerors of the Continent, Nuians possess a deeply spiritual culture that revolves around Nui, the Goddess of the Hereafter. They revere the beauty and harmony of their fallen kingdom and fight fearlessly to maintain the traditions that brought them to power.

    Skills

    Nuians receive extra benefits for visiting the Hereafter, doubling the time their stats are increased after being resurrected.

     

    Nuians enjoy reduced construction time for houses and castles, a legacy of the destruction caused by their rebellions and civil wars.

  • The blood of life is honor, and the blood of death the same.

    ELVES

    Elves seclude themselves deep in the forest, avoiding other races as much as possible. Though envied for their beauty, their behavior is considered incomprehensible: hoping for an honorable death, they seek out danger no matter the odds.

    Skills

    Conditioning for the rigors and strains of combat has given Elves the ability to hold their breath underwater for extended periods.

     

    Spending decades near Gweonid Lake makes most Elves talented swimmers with increased speed.

  • Claw to earth, blood to water, fang to wind, fur to fire.

    Firran

    The restless, nomadic Firran roam the wilds, fueled by dreams of reclaiming their former glory. They believe every life – no matter how small – is not only valuable, but plays a critical role in the natural world. All Firran strive to find their purpose and play their part.

    Skills

    Firran can use their quick reflexes and powerful bodies to decrease fall damage.

     

    Long, non-retractable claws allow Firran to climb trees and ladders faster.

  • We may bend, but we do not break.

    Harani

    Harani are survivors in the truest sense, capable of extreme and heroic acts serving the interests (and preservation) of their people. Practical, cunning, and family-minded, it is no surprise the strength of their new kingdom rivals the strength of the kingdom they lost.

    Skills

    The Harani have mastered the use of portals to travel across their far-flung empire, reducing the cast time and cooldown of their Recall ability.

     

    Settling the jungles of Mahadevi taught the Harani to be efficient laborers, reducing the time they require for logging and gathering.

Classes

ArcheAge features over 100 Classes built from 10 Skillsets favored by the gods and heroes of the Great Expedition. Skillsets host a range of abilities, from Sorcery’s devastating spells to Songcraft’s soothing ballads. Each one levels up independently (as you gain experience with a Skillset, you will unlock its array of powers) and over time you can master them all.

After reaching level 10, you can combine any three Skillsets to make a unique Class. You can swap Skillsets in and out to change Classes as often as you like, with no predefined path to follow. Experiment and discover Classes to fit any situation, and all with the same character!
