The ArcheAge community has known the names of all eight races for a long time, but we weren’t sure what they all looked like. With these three images, now we can easily recognize all but two of ArcheAge’s eight planned races! Those last two races, however, have also been revealed in a roundabout way…
The Hariharans are humans like the Nuians, but they hate each others’ guts (the reasons behind the Hariharan schism haven’t been revealed yet). Hariharans are very Eastern fantasy themed compared to the more Western fantasy trope that the Nuians embody, and they also happen to preside over ArcheAge’s eastern continent, uniting the races that live there under a single banner. This race values family, responsibility and respect above all else, and prefers to use lighter weapons and armor than the Nuians.
Dwarves in ArcheAge are similar to Dwarves in other games. Really, any other kind of Dwarf would probably cause Tolkien to rise from the dead and kill us all. They’re stubborn people who love precious metals and gems, but they’re also skilled warriors who will stand valiantly alongside their friends in the face of danger. They prefer to live in mountain caves, building complex villages and structures while mining for anything that shines.
And finally, the Warborn are revealed. A long time ago we posted an image of what we thought the Warborn would look like. Turns out we were mostly correct. Warborn are neither demons nor humans, but a gigantic race who excel at killing things (such as dragons). No one knows for sure where they came from, not even Warborn elders, so they’ve joined the effort to discover the lost history of ArcheAge’s world on the northern continent in an attempt to learn more about themselves.
The last two races will probably be Fairies and some kind of necromantic race. Click the image below.
Update: fixed some typos.
A new ArcheAge race has been revealed! This is an translation of its description:
Ferres, those that survive as warriors of duty among the wilderness.
They wander across the plains, looking and behaving like beasts, refusing to settle in any one place.
Cruel as they are to discard even their own flesh and blood in order to survive, they also are willing to devote their lives to a cause, drifting from place to place and pledging friendship with Snow Lions. (Translator note: this sentence was confusing.)
They hope to live in brand-new, wide-open land where they can explore and worship nature in its purest form.
Note: the singular form of Ferres is Ferre.
