Yesterday I took a break from doing trade runs, spent pretty much all of the money I had saved up, and decided to craft a clipper (pictured above). Instead of spending my gilda which I have been painstakingly saving up, I went to the auction house and bought the design for roughly 40 gold. I had already saved up the components for the fabric, iron, and lumber packs, so all that was left was placing a ship dock out in the water (cost is 10g plus it requires 10 iron ingots and 10 lumber) and to complete construction. Takes a handful of labor, and then tada, you have a ship.
I also customized it with the guild logo for Greymoon Trading Company. When I was done with customization I decided to purchase one of the appearance items from the market, and created a matching shirt.
Today I’m hoping to get back to trade pack runs and make up the coin that I spent yesterday creating the ship. I haven’t done a lot of leveling (except leveling through crafting) and it’s my weekend so I have some extended time to play.
I’m still really enjoying my time in ArcheAge, which I know is easy to say considering the game is still fresh and new. I have a feeling that a lot of people will grow frustrated with the 30+ game when it turns to pvp more than anything else, but I’m prepared for that. I’m hoping one day to afford a 24×24 and actually find a spot to place it, but in the mean time I’m content with exploring the world, doing trade runs, and generally having a good time.
As always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!
