With the release of Archeage 3.0 and the new fresh start servers alot has changed in the game, There’s new ways of attaining Ayanard level gear, balance adjustments, new zones, new mechanics with the abyssal skills and the new community centers in every zone.
Leveling and starting gear at 50
When you level you just want to do quests to level, don’t complete them 100% always turn them in at under performed, turning them in early does not give you less exp, its just faster.
Spend your labor but be smart about it.
While leveling you will get armor and weapons from mobs that you have to identify, after level 25 you want to start opening those and breaking them down for sun and moonlight dust, save them, they will be important later.
After you hit 50
When you hit level 50 its very crucial that you go to Karkasse Ridgelands and get the quest armor from that area if you haven’t already and go to Hasla and attain at least your main hand weapon from sky gale ( thats the name of the area that you get the quest ) and immediately head to Auroria and start farming Auroria gear, preferably you would want a full heroic set of your choosing but for the sake of time, an arcane set should be good enough too ( this includes your weapons )
Dungeons and Lots of Them !
Back in the day, the best weapons were either Ayanard or Obsidian, both who are extremely RNG and hard to attain, the Ayanard weapon more so than anything because you have to go through 8 Weapons who can completely ruin your crafting, The obsidian used to be the better option because the first 4 Tiers have always been fairly easy to acquire.
But no more, what we want to do now is run as many Greater Dungeons as possible, the new Dungeon gear is quite frankly insane at their later stages, save your gold, do your daily runs and when you finally get a weapon (Any of the greater dungeon weapons can be used to craft the new gear, you get to chose which weapon you want)
Too make sure the weapon you craft will never be Sub-Par, this is best done by getting the weapon to Unique and then crafting a magic regrading scroll and skipping Celestial, should you get Celestial you can use that too, although trying to Regrade the weapon again at this point may break it. ( That will be bad )

This is Archeages biggest PvE patch ever, and while some of us prefer PvP we cannot deny that this is by far the EASIEST time gearing we will EVER have in Archeage, Use it to the fullest.
