The Archos Herald, Issue 14 - Chaos Reigns!


Welcome to the 14th issue of The Archos Herald - your source for all the latest updates on Dark and Light’s development and community features!

Development Updates

This week, we launched the first batch of our new server type, Chaos servers! These servers are dedicated entirely to testing the state of PvP, with higher experience gains, increased drop rates, increased max tamed creature level, and more. We’re keeping an especially close eye on feedback from the Chaos servers to make adjustments to improve the overall progression and PvP systems, so hop on your region’s Chaos server and make your feedback heard on our official forums[] or /r/DarkandLight!
