Trion Worlds recently revealed that they will be releasing a new continent, Auroria, for ArcheAge on November 4th.
The new continent will be featuring six new zones, four of which will be available for guild claims.Guilds will be able to claim the land and rule it from the safety of their player-built castles. The new continent will also be bringing an additional 30% housing space.
To claim one of the new zones, a guild leader must cleanse its Archeum Lodestone with a new Purifying Archeum trade pack. Cleansing the Lodestone designates them as Lord and gives them power over the zone’s land. The Lord’s guild may then construct a castle to surround the Lodestone, protecting it from would-be usurpers. (The designs for individual castle sections can be purchased on Mirage Isle.) Each Lord collects property taxes in the form of gold from all individuals who build in their zone and can also destroy any dwellings erected within their castle’s walls.
Periodically, a siege declaration item for each zone will appear on the Auction House and the highest bidder will win the rights to siege that specific zone’s Lodestone at a designated time. If victorious, that guild’s leader will claim the title of Lord, all of the accompanying powers, and become the new owner of the zone’s castle (or what remains of it!).
The new continent will also be bringing new dungeons, vehicles and much more.
