Cheating in ArcheAge includes essentially any and all methods or techniques that allow a player to get more Experience, Gold, Honor Points, Gilda Stars or Nui Tears in less time. Some Cheats achieve this by giving you some kind of shortcut, some by making your combat more effective, others by automating tasks or exploiting bugs. Some cheats, such as certain exploits, can be used manually. However, the most effective ways of cheating, such as bots and hacks, are aided by software that usually has to be developed and updated regularly and can be quite expensive.
While some hacks and exploits can be very useful in PvP and trading situations, the most popular and overpowered way of cheating in ArcheAge is the use of bots: Since AA gives you a lot of very repetitive and time-consuming ways of grinding for ships, houses ect, bots are without a doubt the best and most effective cheat to use in this specific MMORPG. However, you need to keep in mind that cheating is against the game rules of ArcheAge and doing it will potentially endanger your account. – So try to keep a low profile, never overdo it and never tell anyone that you are exploiting the game to keep your account and investment save. Also try to use cheats with respect for the players and the game itself.
Bots are programs that are able to take control of your ArcheAge characters and perform certain tasks automatically. Now as already mentioned bots are quite insane in this specific game, since the game gives us a lot of very repetitive ways of grinding that can easily be done by a bot: Trade runs can easily be done by bots (as long as in friendly territory) to grind a lot of Gilda Stars, farming can also easily be done by bots for lots of XP, fishing is an obvious botting activity, grinding mobs can be quite effective too, gathering (mining ect) and bots are even able to sell the items they find during all of these activities. With other words: ArcheAge is a bot users dream game. The rewards for botting in this game are so great that I do expect Trion to have to take huge counter-measures soon, since the game is free to play on top of that. The only thing limiting the use of bots just a little bit is the slowly regenerating labor.
Overall, bots will easily be able to farm experience for yout to reach level 50 quite quickly. Aft that you will be able to have your bots do trade runs to grind out your bigger ships, houses and other goodies and in the end-game botting will become even more overpowered. While there may be certain free bots out there, they are often very limited and easily detected, endangering your account and all the time you invested into it. If you want to use bots safely, then go for a paid bot that allows you to not only create your own farming routes, but also get a variety of default ones and never use the bot more than 16h a day. Also make sure that you don’t grind one single activity for too long: Don’t have your bot farming mobs at a single location for 3 weeks, but change the grinding paths and methods up regularly.
Hacks are programs that inject code into your ArcheAge game client and add functionality to it. Compared to a bot this kind of cheat can be detected by client-side anti-cheat software. – So if you are looking to use hacks in AA, then do please make sure that the software you are using is 100% up to date and undetected. Hacks can be used in many different ways: On one hand hacks can be used to make things visible that usually would be invisible, such as enemy players, mobs, items ect. On the other hand hacks can be used to actually change some client side values, such as your position and some game shysics:
Teleport hacks are very effective for farming and getting around fast, flaying hacks are very obvious and not recommended to use, jumping higher is nice if used right, speedhacks to run and walk faster, noclip or wallhacks can be sued to escape threats and get to inaccessible places. Overall hacks can be quite overpowered, since they can get you below the game world and allow you to potentially do a lot of damange while you are almost invincible. However, these hacks should never be used in PvP, since any sane human will be able to tell that you are hacking, take screenshots, report you and your account is pretty much done. – Keep in mind that this is a free to paly game and game moderators will not think twice before banning an obvious hacker. So please use caution when hacking in ArcheAge or you may very well loose a character you have invested hundreds of hours in.
