Following the disastrous launch things have calmed down in Ginnungas corner of Archeage on the server Kyprosa. Calmed down as in the queues have lessened and crashes are infrequent, which has led to a furious activity in game.
Since last our naval forces have grown considerably and currently consists of four galleons, three tradeships, three fishing boats and countless clippers. A big thanks to all our dedicated members who have been carrying a seemingly endless amount of tradepacks to Freedich to make new proud captains.
We've delved into the PvE side of things as well by not only slaughtering our way through all available dungeons, but also giving world bosses a go. The Hounds of Kyrios are now on farmstatus which has resulted in Sinful having a full set of Heroic plate armor with Toszi, Clintan and Orodeath gaining new pieces every day.
Hanure the Hunter dies whenever she dares show her face, but is so far being a bitch in regards to loot. We suspect being some kind of kitty crossbreed plays a part.
We're eagerly awaiting Auroria and the release of the 10 man instance to further show our prowess against pixels.
Besides the monsters of the wild we're also battling our gardens, which leads to many questions. What do we grow? Is it worth planting for thunderstrucks? How can we maximize profit? Can Lyngs make more bundles? Will Ernesto ever pick a lemon by himself? It's impossible to know.
All of the previous mentioned activities are of course just a preparation for our main focus, to see our enemies bleed out before us. And there's plenty of PvP action to go around! The seas are ripe with reds and pirates, Freedich is a constant warzone and behind the curtains alliances and pacts are forged in preparation for Auroria.
November 4th is the release date of the northern continent which holds castles and treasures beyond comprehension. Which guilds will come out on top, and which will be relegated to a life of poverty? The Game of Turds never stops.
Since last a couple of our recruits have survived their trial period and we've with open arms welcomed Nexi, Toszi, Orodeath, Scaretactics, Zpellcazter and Vigilance as new members of Ginnunga. We hope to share adventures with you for many years to come!
They however left a vacancy in our trial department which has been filled by Hardedged, Astaria, Jawas, Selin, Centesia, Rayne, Cyrane, Lambee, Rellic and Noway.
For Ginnunga it's a extremely high number of trials, and we've decided to close our recruitment for the time being. How many of our recruits that will survive to become full members remains to be seen, but we're very happy to have you with us while you're still standing!
That concludes the october update. Six weeks into the game we show no signs of slowing down and even our most dedicated members are finding new thing to occupy their time every day. Saying this is the best game ever created might be too much, but we're cautiously optimistic that we'll be here at least another month.
Til next time, see you on the open seas!
