Our first major content update, The Mysteries of Blackice Peaks is now live! Click here for full patch notes.
This update brings some long-awaited performance optimizations, as well as a mountain of new content, including 2 brand new Knowledge nodes, Forging and Goblin Engineering, as well as the dreaded Ice Caves, Dark and Light’s first PvE dungeon! Adventurers who brave the cold and powerful creatures dwelling in the Ice Caves will be rewarded with powerful new items and equipment. Gather your party and make sure you’re well-equipped before attempting to dive in, the entrance isn’t large enough to bring your tamed creatures along!

We’ve been continuing to get submissions that would make all three factions proud. We’ve decided to let this event run for just a little while longer, until Saturday, 9/9 at 12:00PM PST so that everyone has ample time to show us why their faction is the best on Archos. All you need to do is take a screenshot of your character representing your faction and send it to
