Were you upset that ArcheAge had to go down for a little while to get the 2.0 update? Was the downtown insufferable as ArcheAge was the only game you had to play? Probably not, but that doesn't change the nice gesture Trion is making by offering anyone who logs in a free compensation pack, containing the following:

  • 1x Pure New Year Activewear (pictured above)
  • 1x Scroll: Winged Love Paddleboat (pictured below)
  • 3x Bound Worker's Compensation: 1000
  • 50x Bound Tax Certificates
  • 3x Superior White Regrade Charms (Guaranteed regrade success on Rare gear only)
  • 10x Bound Greedy Goblin Gummies
  • 10x Bound Frakenflavor Jawbreakers
  • 30x Bound Tyrenos's Index
  • 30x Warrior Medals

This pack, as far as I know, was promised before the update, but the contents have yet to be announced. It came with an official apology about the downtown:

We apologize that the launch of Heroes Awaken on Saturday was tarnished by a series of login issues that prevented players from being able to play right away. We always want to offer you the best service we possibly can, and the Glyph team will continue to improve the service that we provide across ArcheAge, and all of our games.

and instructions on how to claim your goodies:

We plan to release this pack of items to all qualifying accounts on the morning of September 16.

IMPORTANT: To retrieve your pack, log into the Glyph Management page, locate the 0 credit pack called the "2.0 Additional Downtime Compensation Pack," and purchase it for free.

You will be able to assign the pack once to any one of your characters, and that includes those on Morpheus and Rangora, our fresh start servers. Once assigned to the character of your choice, your items will be waiting for you in your in-game mailbox.

Details on how long this pack will be available were not given, but I'd probably assume around a week at the most, so hurry up and claim your goodies. You can read the forum post here talking about this update.
