They allow you to revive without moving back to town and without the experience penalties.

8) Skill Guide
Skill trainers are located in all main towns; every time you level you will gain a skill point which you may spend at these NPCs to gain new skills/spells or even upgrade current skills/spells. You will soon notice if you are an Orc trying to use the human skill trainers it will not work, you must use you own skill trainers as all of your spells/skills are class and race specific.

[1] Trainer NPC is located in various towns and villages. [2] You can learn your clicking Skill button [3] There are 4 types of skills available; Combat Skills such as combo hits, Buff Skills such as temporary stat increases, Class Skills that are class specific and Passive skills that are permanent stat increases. [4] You obtain a skill by selecting it. Once you have obtained a skill it can be upgraded to the next level by buying the same skill again.

[5] Learn your skill by clicking Learn at the bottom of the skill window. [6] You can reset your skills by clicking Reset button.

When using skill points do be careful, there are ways to reset the points but it will cost WC credits. The first full reset is free, and you will be refunded the costs of your skills but you will not be refunded the additional tax you have spent on them in the towns while you were training. Occasionally therefore, if you choose to do a full reset for the first time, you may not have enough money to re- purchase all the skills again after you take the additional taxes into account. Skills can be learned in 2 different ways: The first is the standard method of random purchase, you click on the skill you wish to buy and that is it. The second way happens once you get to the Combo Skills or if you decide to play a Dragon Scion Character. These skills must be learned in a specific way (a skill tree) and you cannot purchase some skills until you have achieved a minimum level in other skills. Although it sounds complicated, it is fairly self explanatory when you get to learn them. The only difficulty you may encounter is if you wish to reset one skill on a skill tree you usually have to reset many others too so it can be a very expensive reset. Once you have purchased your skills, press K to bring up the skill menu and then drag the skills down to the toolbar. Skills can be cast by right clicking with the mouse, or by pressing the corresponding number across the top of the keyboard.

9) Item Guide
9-1) Item Equipping

ArchLord features a vast range of wearable items such as weapons, rings, amulets and armor. When equipping equipment simply double click the armor piece in your inventory, alternately you may wish

to open your character menu and your inventory and click and drag it to the desired slot. Sometimes you can switch armor sets while buffing, this can allow you to have a much better build depending on the additional skills that come with the armor set. This does not always work with weapons though, swapping weapons after buffing can cause the player to lose the buffs he or she has already cast. 9-2) Item Stats Wearable items are split into 5 groups; White = Normal, Orange = Rare, Purple = Unique, Gold = Elite, and Blue = Combination. Normal wearable items can be purchased from NPCs in villages and towns, but Rare, Unique and Elite items are only found in monster loot, and Combination must be made by a player using the Combination method. Both Weapons and Armor have a durability rating which is shown as a fraction. When this rating reaches zero the weapon will be broken beyond repair and a new weapon will need to be equipped. While a weapons durability rating is anywhere above zero it can be taken to a Blacksmith or Animal Breeder NPC and repaired in exchange for Gold. To equip an item a character must meet the item requisites. Some items may require a certain character level, race or class. Item conditions of use are displayed within the item stats which are shown when the mouse icon is held over an item in the Inventory or relevant character slot in the character window(C). [1] Required Level: A character must meet or exceed the stated character experience level. [2] Required Race: Some items are race specific, others can be used by any race. [3] Required Class: Some items are class specific, others can be used by all classes 9-3) Item Repair

Blacksmiths can be found in almost every town and village you visit. You can use the blacksmith to

either upgrade weapons using or repair your armor parts. When using the blacksmiths located in each town you must have all the items you want to repair unequipped in your inventory. Then after selecting the repair option you must click and drag the items from your inventory to the repair window then click repair all once all your chosen items are in the window. 9-4) Item Upgrade

Upgrading items is a very important aspect of the game, each +1 to your armor or weapon will increase its basic physical stats. For amour the defense shall increase and for weapons the physical attack power will increase. To upgrade youre armor or weapons you need reinforcement potions. Once you have entered the upgrade item menu you will notice your reinforcement potions are already listed, all you have to do now is select which armor or weapon you wish to upgrade and drag it into the top slot. Now all you must do is right click Upgrade(and hope that youre lucky) reinforcement is done by chance so it may take 10 potions to get to +10 or may take 99. If you fail the upgrade it randomly reset the weapon. And if you success the upgrade the weapon is now +1 with increased physical damage. There are items available from the CC shop that can improve your chances of success, but even they do not guarantee a 100% success rate. 9-5) Item Combinations Similar to other forms of crafting, (as in you collect items together to produce a different item) but combinations are done in the refinery, and require no prior experience or minimum level in crafting skills. The refinery can be used for several purposes; - Upgrading Potions - Combining stones to make bigger stones - 50 one way passports can be combined to make a round trip passport

- Creating Combination Accessories. - Creating Combination Weapons - Upgrading Shields Combination Accessories For those of us who have not been lucky enough to find a unique accessory we can try and make combination accessories. The items we need to make each combination can be found listed under the F1 help file in game. After making sure we have all the required items we can put them into the refinery. Each attempt at combining accessories has a success rate, similar to that of reinforcing. Sometimes the items will fail, other times you may be left with an item that is not as good as you hoped. Another thing worth mentioning is that the accessories made using this method can gain additional stats as the level of the player increases. Therefore if you have a higher level character too, it is always a good idea to put the item on that character as well to check for any additional stats.

10) Trading Guide

10-1) NPC TRADING Before entering into battle, you should stock up on items you think may be needed during your travels. Take plenty of potions and projectiles if needed. For this reason, trading with a Merchant NPC is essential before setting off. Talk to the Merchant NPC, click on Buy/Sell. You will then be presented with the Merchants Store and your Inventory. Drag the item that you wish to purchase or sell between the Merchants Store and your inventory. You will be asked to confirm the trade, click yes to complete the transaction (if you decide against the trade click No to cancel it). You can also click the right mouse button on items in either the merchants or your own Inventory to start a transaction. Once you have finished trading click the Close button at the bottom of the merchants Store. Remember to make sure you really want to sell an item before confirming any transaction as you may

be selling something precious or difficult to obtain again.

10-2) PLAYER TO PLAYER TRADING At times there are instances when you may wish to trade with other players. To begin a trade click on the player you wish to trade with, and then select Trade from the user menu next to their name. A message regarding the trade request is sent to the other player. Once the other player agrees to trade then the trade window and player Inventory will open for both players. The upper part of the trade window is where you drop your items that you wish to give to the other player. The lower part is where the other player will place any items he/she will be giving to you. Gold can also be paid in exchange for goods. Once you have both selected all items to be traded or entered a price you are willing to pay for goods, press the Lock button. Both players must now click the Trade button to complete the transaction. 10-3) AUCTION HOUSE To sell an item in the Auction House open your Inventory and click the Sell button located underneath your Gold. This will open your sales window where you can drag items you wish to sell onto available slots. A sale price must be entered into the pop up box to complete the listing.

To buy from or browse the Auction House you must visit an Item Trader NPC who can be found in many of the villages or towns.

Trading Bound items You are able to trade some bound items (like uniques) too. But you need to use a marvel scroll of release to make the item unbound.

To trade for example a unique you have to put the marvel scroll into the trade window first. put the marvel scroll you will be able to put the unique item into the trade window.

After you

11) Crafting Guide


If you have the right tools and skills you can collect items from the corpses of monsters, these items can later be used to craft items such as Food, Weapons and Potions. 11-1) Collecting Skill After killing a mob, players will often see an image of a hand at the top of the screen under the name of the corpse. If this icon appears, it means that the player can collect an item from the mob, by using the collection skill. Players must be level 7 before they can learn the collection skill from the adventurer. Adventurers can be found in different places throughout the world of Chantra, but they can always be found in the starter towns too. As well as buying the collection skill from the adventurer you will need to buy a knife from the merchant too.

Press J and you should see the collection skill shown in the crafting window. It should appear as a colored picture of a hand. If the picture appears in black and white check you have purchased a knife. If you have purchased a knife and it still appears in black and white - try relogging. Using the left mouse button, drag the collection skill into a vacant window of your task bar. Each time you kill a mob and the collection skill icon appears under its name at the top of the screen, right click on the collection icon in your skill bar, and your character will then attempt to collect an item from the mob

The collection skill is not 100% successful, but with each successful attempt at collecting, your collection level will increase by a set percentage. As your level of ability increases, you will be able to collect rare items and after level 9 you will be able to collect "finest items". The items you collect can be used for different things, some are required to complete quests, and others can be used for cooking and alchemy. With Cooking it is possible to create foods to give you extra defense, attack and protection skills; with Alchemy you can make metamorphosis potions and also boxes that contain items such as potions, stones and passports. Mobs in the Chaotic Frontiers also have items you can collect which will reduce you cast time and cool down times, or give you 10% chance to convert damage, or skill block +10%, and the bone shards from CF can be used to make a mask, which does all 3 and will last for 30 minutes. Also all the items you collect can be sold at the Auction House (with the exception of items collected in the Chaotic Frontiers), and selling them is a good way of increasing the quantity of gold you have in game. Your success in collecting rare and finest items increases as your collection skill level increases too. Finest items rarely drop before level 9, but by level 15 (current maximum level for crafting) you should collect the finest items more often. Each mob usually will drop one of 3 different items (there are a few exceptions) and each of these items usually drops in 2 different forms normal and rare. Also each mob will drop 1 kind of finest item, and part of the fun is discovering from which mob you can collect the items from. For those who do not want to search for the items, check the table below:

Item Meat Skin Horn Leather Feather Scale Tooth Tail Stem Bone Stone Blade Bugmeat Bell Cobwebs Claw Organ

Normal and Rare Trackers, Deer, Boars, Wolves, Goblins, Lizardmen, Barricks, Bats, Ethans, Amblords Glutton Workers, Spiders, Worms, Moths, Crawlers, Lequimes, Deer, Gargoyles, Creptils, Centaurs, Vampires, Wolves, Lycantos, Barricks, Eyeballs, Bats, Ethans, Amblords, Voltex Eyeballs, Griffens, Brokens, Crows Drans, Lamias, Maryliths Bats, Vampires, Glutton Workers, Boar, Goblins, Skeletons, Ethans, Lamias, Teeth Hypolynx, Wolves, Amblords, Creptils, Maryliths, Voltex, Lizardmen, Manticores Torges, Tentacles Vampires, Cubes, Skeletons Cubes, Golems, Sharddancers, Grinders, Ircon Plants, Bandillions, Thieves, Gnolls, Cubes, Gigglers, Baloondogs, Glutton Workers, Spiders, Worm, Moths, Crawlers, Gigglers, Spriggans, Skeletons, Spiders, Lamias, Viscious, Lycantos, Bandillions, Crows Barricks, Baloondogs, Boars, Worms, Crawlers

Finest Manticores, Voltex Lequimes Deer, Centaurs Lycantos, Bandillions Eyeball, Broken, Crow Vipers, Drans, Maryliths Bats, Vampires, Trolls Wolves, Lizardmen Torges Cube, Skeleton Golems Thieves, Gnolls Moths Gigglers Spiders Lamias, Viscious Worm, Boar, Crawler

Many other mobs will drop the items above so the above list is by no means complete. Half of the fun is trying to find which items the mobs drop too. Also please note that some of the items change name as they switch from Normal to Rare to Finest:

These items can usually be found in the Auction House too, although if you collect them yourself you can save a considerable amount of gold, and make quite a lot of gold selling your spare collected items too. 11-2) Cooking Skill Cooking and Alchemy are useful in game for several reasons. Cooking will allow you to create foods that will give your character greater defense, attack or resistance, or can also increase your HP or MP for a limited period of time. Alchemy will allow you to make either metamorphosis potions which you can use to transform yourself into various mobs and increase your powers for a limited time, or you can use alchemy to create boxes which will contain items useful to you such as potions, stones, scrolls, passports and occasionally serazaren pets. Both skills are necessary to complete the buddy system, and items created by both skills are necessary for some of the game quests. Cooking can be learned from level 10. You need to buy the main skill from the cook, and you will need to purchase the recipes too, so select crafting to purchase the skill and recipes suitable for your cooking level. The recipes available depend on your cooking level, as your ability at cooking increases, the number of recipes available to you will also increase.

Then you will need to purchase additional ingredients and cooking utensils so on the conversation screen choose the Buy/Sell option and purchase your utensils. Once you have bought the cooking skill from the cook press J, the cooking ability should be shown on your crafting screen as below: If the skill appears grayed out (as in the collection and alchemy skill shown below), then you need to ensure you have purchased the cooking utensil. If you have already purchased the utensil and it still is grayed out, try relogging. Drag the cooking skill from the Craft skills box into your skill bar using the left mouse button: To create a recipe, right click on the cooking skill in the skill bar and the list of recipes you have

learned will appear. Hover the mouse over each recipe and you can see at a glance which items you have and which you are missing in order to create a recipe. If all your recipes titles are written in grey you do not have enough of any ingredients to complete a recipe missing items are written in red. Cooking recipes involves a mixture of food items bought from the cook, and collected items which you have either ransacked yourself or purchased from another player or the Auction House.

If one of the recipes is written in white this means you have all the ingredients necessary to attempt to cook the recipe. Click on the white recipe and the create box will light up, along with pictures showing how many of each item is needed to make the recipe. Click create and your character will cook the chosen recipe. If you are unsuccessful, then a message will appear the bottom right of the screen stating that Cooking has Failed. If your cooking is successful the food will appear in your bags and your level of cooking will increase by a small percentage. To consume the food, right click on the item in your bag. There are optional additional seasonings available for purchase from the cook, and these can be used in order to increase the success rate of the recipe. Buy them from the cook and these will automatically be used in your recipe if you have them stored in your inventory.

11-3) Alchemy Skill

This is almost identical to the cooking procedure,

but with a few minor differences; You must be level 15 in order to learn the skill, and there are 2 main types of items you can make metamorphosis potions or boxes First you need to learn the skill from the Alchemist. Alchemists can be found all over Chantra, but always in the first towns. As well as learning the skill you will also need to learn the recipes for the potions and boxes. The metamorphosis potions can be seen at the top of the list, but if you scroll down you will soon see the alchemy box recipes that are available for your level too.

Alchemists sell the Alchemy cauldron under the Buy/Sell section, and they also sell alchemy scrolls for each different alchemy recipe. These scrolls are optional, but can improve the success rate of the alchemy attempt. Once you have learned the skill of alchemy, and purchased the recipe and the alchemy cauldron, press J and drag the alchemy skill into your skill bar. If the skill appears grayed out, check you have bought the cauldron, if it still appears grayed out, relog back into the game. As with cooking, open the alchemy skill box by right clicking on it in the skill bar. However the mouse over each recipe to see which items you still need. If the recipe is written in white rather than grey, then you have all the ingredients necessary, and clicking on that recipe will highlight the create button and display images of how many of each item your recipe will cost. Click the create button and if you are successful the potion or box will appear in your bag and your alchemy level will increase by a small percentage. To use the item, right click on it in the storage bag if you use a metamorphosis potion your character will mutate into that creature to end the metamorphosis early, right click on the metamorphosis icon shown at the bottom right corner of the screen. The metamorphosis potions have level restrictions on them, so although you may be able to create a metamorphosis potion, you may not be able to use it until your character is a higher level.

To open a box you have created, right click on the box in your storage bag. All the crafting skills can be very useful, but take some practice. Getting into the habit of collecting from mobs when you can, and storing all the items where possible to make into potions and boxes and food can make a big difference to the amount of gold you have available in game. Selling the items you collect that you do not need to the merchant or for more money to the Auction House, can also increase the players wealth, especially if the items are needed by other players in order to complete quests. If you have crafting skills it is a good idea to regularly check the auction house and see which items and products are selling for the most money, this can help considerably and can allow a player to spend more when other players of the same level, but without crafting skills are struggling for gold. Also IF you accidentally spend too much gold and then have none left for potions, collecting the necessary items from low level mobs will allow you to make the alchemy boxes that contain potions and therefore let you continue to play without having to sell anything important.

12) Quest System


There are over 2000 Quests that can be collected from NPCs in the vast continent of Chantra. These quests can be single tasks or can be chain quests where multiple tasks must be completed to finish the quest. Symbols above these NPCs will show you which ones have Quests available and what status those Quests are at. A yellow exclamation mark - NPC has a new Quest Available A green question mark - You have accepted a Quest from the NPC A yellow question mark - NPCs Quest has been completed and you may need to speak with them to claim your reward.

Any Active Quests can be found in your Quest Diary, to access this use the (Q) key. Various rewards are received for completing Quests, such as Gold, XP and sometimes rare items too. In game there are different ways to get Experience and Items, one of those methods is by doing Quests. You will be able to get quests starting from level 1.

As you can see there are a lot of red exclamation marks on this screenshot of Tullan. Each exclamation mark means there is an NPC with available Quests. Just go to the different NPCs and click on them to read about the available quests. You can accept a maximum of 10 Quests at a time. Once you have clicked accept, the quests will be visible in your quest list. Quests which are displayed with white letters are incomplete; those written in grey letters have been almost completed and just need you to return to the NPC stated in the quest.

13) Map Guide


No matter where you are in game, press M to see the map of the area. When you are in, press M and shift. If you press shift it will show you the names of the NPCs. The world of Chantra is vast. It is large somewhat Pangaea like land. Its formed of 2 large continents with Humans to the north-west, Dragon scion to the south-west, Elves to the north-east, Orcs to the south-east, and a large desert in the center. Youll find many mobs in the outside world. You will also find out that they are much easier to kill than those in caves and chaos frontier and battleground and realm, with the loss of a lot of experience. As you progress through the outside world mobs will become higher level as you continue to newer towns and eventually into the desert of Silancium, then the lush greenery of Latria, and finally into the areas of Ogre village and the village of shadows. The highest level mobs (Lv85) are located in the village of shadows.

World Map

The Mini-Map (M) is located in the top right hand corner of the screen. This map gives you a detailed view of your surrounding landscape and can be very useful for plotting journeys. It can be increased in size by using the + symbol found at its top edge (this can be used twice to get the maximum size). It can then be minimized again by using the symbol. It can also be moved around the screen by simply clicking it and dragging it to your preferred position. The Mini-Map shows you the location of many things in the surrounding area, such as your location, any NPCs, party members and portals.

14) Main Contents


14-1) Siege War

Sieges were introduced in Episode 2 of Archlord and brought with them a different, new and interesting side to the game. The ability to fight with a mass of players for the supreme power is one of the most fun things to do in AL. There are several castles throughout the continent of Chantra: Inflame, Arthian, Traqua, Drayger and Rensphere.

In order to siege a castle, a minimum of two guilds will have fight to each other, although there can be up to 6 guilds competing. The guild master who leads his guild to victory will become the lord of the castle. He will also rule the area where the castle is belonged, and will be compensated as well from the taxes taken in each town. The Defender of a Castle can pick another guild to help defend the castle. The Attacking Guilds must sign up for the siege at the siege Commander located in front of each castle. Attacking Castle In front of the Castle there is a siege merchant from which you can buy different items that can help: catapult bombs, reviving stones or different summons. During the siege the attackers may use the Catapults and Revival Towers they have situated in their deployment zone. The defenders can destroy these structures to buy some time during the fight.

The Catapults can only be attacked and destroyed if they are actively firing. If they are dormant then you cannot inflict damage on them. This also applies to the Revival Towers. If the Revival Towers have been activated by an attacking guild leader they you can attack and destroy this to remove the attackers ability to revive at the battlefield upon death. The attackers can repair both these structures up to 5 times. To win the castle you need to stamp the throne. What that means is staying at the throne for 3 minutes. Only the Guild Master can Stamp. The stamping is cancelled if the Guild Master dies. During stamping you cannot use skills doing so will cancel stamping, you can only use potions. But there are a few steps before you can commerce stamping: 1. Destroying the Outer Gates You can gain initial entry to the castle grounds via 3 methods. Going directly for the main gate or going for the flanking guard towers. The guard towers will fight back however. 2. Destroying the Resurrection Tower (optional) This is an optional requirement and is not integral to the final outcome. Destroying the Revival tower however will remove the defenders ability to revive at the castle grounds upon death. This can prove a major strategical bonus to the attacking team as it dilutes the defenders resistance somewhat. 3. Destroying the Inner Gate There is only one way into the castle for the attackers and that is through the internal gate situated on a higher tier directly behind the castle Revival Tower. 4. Destroying the Tower of Life (optional)\ This is an optional requirement and is not integral to the final outcome. Destroying the Life Tower will disable the defenders use of the castle portals so they can no longer port around the battlefield and reinforce their numbers. 5. Destroying the throne The Throne is protected with a magical archon shield. This must be attacked until it can no longer withstand any more punishment and fails. Once this shield is down the Archon Eyes become vulnerable to attack. 6. Destroying Archons Left and Right Eye. Once the Throne shield is down the Archon Eyes can be attacked. This will blind the Archlords watchful gaze on the castle and allow stamping of the throne. The Eyes are flanked by an Archon protective on each side that will retaliate to any hostile action upon the Eyes. The protective deals around 800dmg and a further 50 magical damage of every elemental school. The protective cannot be attacked or destroyed it will cease its attack when the eye is closed/destroyed. Once you have closed one eye you must close the other eye within 5 minutes of the first one otherwise they both re-open and the attackers have to close both eyes again. 7. Stamping your mark on the Throne The final task in the fight is stamping your mark on the castle throne itself. This will take 3 minutes to achieve and during which the stamping guild leader cannot move or attack other players lest the stamping is cancelled. He/she can however use health potions as normal. Any guild leader can stamp the throne and this is usually the point where alliances fail and the attacking guilds turn against each other for control over the castle. The guild leader that was the last to stamp the throne when the siege timer is up will be declared the new castle lord and the siege will end. 14-2) Chaotic Frontiers There are 6 different Chaotic Frontiers: Forest of Scream, Land of Ice, Dungeon 1F, Dungeon 2F, Forest of Pain and Tower of Despair. These are the places where you have the greatest chance to drop unique accessories or realm set of armors, and they can be entered from the small portals in most towns.

Rules: 1) You can enter any Chaotic Frontier whenever you want, but your level will be downgraded upon entering if its higher than the level range of the CF. 2) If you are usually a higher level than the Chaotic Frontier you enter your level will be downgraded and the rules of that level will apply where PvP is concerned. For example: If you are level 85 and you have entered Dungeon 1F (level 51-55), your level will be lowered to 55, so if you kill a player level 53 there is no additional punishment (except from purple skull). If however you kill a level 51, you will still accumulate VPs 3) If your level is lowered on entering a CF, you will not gain any experience points in there, however if you die to a mob you will lose 3% xp and this will show on resurrecting in town. 4) Armors, weapons and accessories you wish to use, must be within the level range or lower than the Chaotic Frontier you enter. For example: you cannot use Luke Necklace (level 85) in Tower of Despair (level 69-70). Items which are unable to use will remain equipped, but will not work properly and will soon show as broken on your screen. 5) All the skills you have learned will continue to work in any Frontier regardless of the level of the Frontier. For example: If you are level 71 mage and if you have learned Voltaile Combustion (level 71) this skill will still work in Forest of Scream (level 31-40). 6) Despite their lower level, some of the mobs use strong Area on Effect (AoE) attacks, so be careful. 14-3) Battle Ground The Battle Ground is a free battle field, if you kill another player in there of a different race you will not

be punished as in you will get no skull and no villain points regardless of the level of the player you kill. The only restriction is that you cannot kill members of your own race. All other race players have their names hidden in the battleground, and these instead are shown as ******. Also players from different races cannot communicate with each other in either normal chat, shout or guild chat, although race trumpets, shouts of elemental, chat rooms and union chats remain visible. There are many mobs there which give high xp, but you run a much greater risk of being killed in there by other players too. Any mob you kill within your level range, or any player you kill of a similar level or higher will give you Charisma (CHA) points. These CHA points can be spent in the Charisma Lottery machine in each of the race fortresses. Each spin costs 100 charisma points and can result in a variety of gifts from potions, pets and race trumpets to battle ground armor and ashtal stones. Every week on a Thursday and Sunday at 12:00 GST there is a Race versus Race battle (RvR), where each race tries to kill the leaders of the opposing races. There are also a large number of special mobs at the beginning of the RvR which spawn in the centre of the battlefield. The races which successfully kill these mobs then will benefit from additional buffs which will last a few days. During the RvR, all the other monsters are removed from the battle ground, so it is not advised to cast any leveling items such as talismans of awakening or serazarens just before the start of an RvR. Rules in brief: -It is a free battle field, so nobody will be punished for killing the others. -If the player you have killed was around your level or higher you will gain Charisma Points*. -You can attack ONLY other races -You will not see the nicknames of the other races players. -You will not be able to use Revival Orbs (only Resurrection Orbs bought from the chantra shop). -You cannot kill and you will not be attacked by the monsters of your own races fortress.

15) Event NPC

This is probably one of the most important NPCs you will ever find in game. You can find Event bosses in every starter town and every main city throughout the world of Chantra and they are used to deliver rewards to players for many different things. For any of the following you need to go click on the event boss: 1) Exchanging items for in game event rewards. 2) Receiving Guild of the Month rewards 3) Collecting many forum event rewards 4) Registering for the Buddy System 5) Receiving Buddy System rewards 6) Receiving Leveling Up rewards 7) Exchanging Premium Tickets Because of the constant change of events throughout the game, many of the event listed change on a regular basis, it is a good idea to therefore exchange items etc. as soon as you have enough to complete an event, rather than waiting as if the NPC Event changes, you will no longer be able to claim your prize. It is good to regularly check all the pages of the NPC Event Boss, as occasionally you will find rewards for events you may have entered on the forums in preceding months and forgotten to claim.

17) Forum Icon Guide


In the Archlord Forums, you will see different icons. Heres a guide to distinguish them. While GMs and Volunteers have special forum icons, there are many more fun forum icons to enjoy. If you dont have one yet, dont be disappointed! We will continue to have forum events! Game Master (GM) GMs are employees of WEBZEN and they represent WEBZEN Inc. GMs provide support for game users in and out of the game. This includes forums, direct inquiries, events, etc. In Game Volunteer (IGV) An in game Volunteer is a person you can go to with questions or requests with issues. They appear as an lv99 swashbuckler with a golden [V] symbol above their head. IGVs cannot pvp, and are not permitted to trade. They are players just like you, who have offered and been accepted by the GMs to give their time for the players. Official Forum Volunteer Forum Volunteers are players who give up their spare time to help with the day to day running of the forums. They will also help with press releases, translation duties, mediation and occasional testing Probationary Forum Volunteer The same duties as the Official Volunteers, but these players are serving a probationary period first. After a month or so their icon will be changed to one with wings. Volunteers are players that are supporting GMs and administrators. Please remember they are users as well as other players. Official Volunteers are selected by the GMs and you can ask for their help in and out of the game. However, please do not ask much or flame at the Volunteers as they do not represent WEBZEN since they are not employees of WEBZEN Inc.
