Harikrishnas => elves
dwarfes => dwarfes
warbones => orcs

changing names does not change substance.
typos intentional.

@pid Um, dude, there's already Elves in the game. Hariharans are humans.

Just a speculation from limited info, but it seems more likely

Warborn =/= Warforged (from DDO)

That would fit in a bit within the ArcheAge world (which has light steam-punk elements). But that's just speculation on my part.

I dunno. I'm getting more of a Tiefling from D&D impression, only with their demon blood making them huge rather than sexy.

Warborn excel at killing things huh...? So if I made a Warborn healer and revived someone, does that mean I killed death, or did I just kill the dead body so hard it came back to life?

@Ren54 There's other things to do than craft in ArcheAge. Hope that's not all you did in Aion. :P

Aion crafting had the right idea, it was just so poorly executed. Im all for making +1 items and there being an element of chance with REAL depth to crafting. I'm quite tired of grabbing 20 stacks of leather and going afk while I make 400 armor kits.(or whatever)

The sidebar here says ArcheAge's US release is this year. Could someone point me to the article with that info in it?

@DeadlyAccurate

I'd like to know mysef...if thats the case, Im there!

However, I highly HIGHLY doubt it. I mean, we don't even have a beta schedule that I know of. So, with ~4 months left in the year, Im not seeing that happening.

"but a gigantic race who excel at killing things."

Does this mean if you want to go about killing things, you should roll a Warborn? And if you roll any other races, you're just gimping yourself?

I hope not. The idea of "If you want to do X class, then you should roll Y race" would make the game look rather boring.

Like Aion for example: launched in Nov 08 , beta's for the game didn't hit the states till the late Summer of 09 and then the game launched in Sept. I know it's a whole other game studio, but most Korea MMO games I've played, usually take almost a year till they hit the states.

I believe it will release late Fall to early next year in S. Korea, I have a feeling that we may not see a NA beta till Spring or Summer of next year.

Release in Korea has no schedule , but there were no open beta in Korea yet , propably there will be 1-2 more closed beta in Korea , then open beta then release. So rumors say Q1 2012 for Korean Release.

So in US/ EU I would say at least Q3 2012 for release date , well unless deal with publisher in west will be signed soon. As for example deal with publisher in China has been signed not so long ago and they are already reparing betas for China , so they won't be releasing it in China much later than in Korea.

One more thing;

There are going to be 2 human races/ nations + 1 elf race + 1 dwarf race + 1 nomadic , cat like race (not cute , more like nomadic warriors) + 1 warforged

There will be 2 races more , so there will be 8 total.

Rumors are that it might be 1 fairy , dryad and 1 undead or similar
though no info or even concet art , so that might be completly false

From the blog entry: '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.'

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame *cough* No, actually, we'd love to see something different once in a while, and Tolkien would probably appreciate if not everyone ripped him off and instead showed a bit of originality. Or at least looked to other sources of inspiration.

There is a lot of potential to the game, hope that it is not a grind fest like other Asian MMO's and if it is, then they need to make sure that its worth it.

Looking forward to seeing more on this game, the video's they have shown are very nice, though I still feel that the actual players do not seem to fit well with the rest of the game hope they fix that and make it more fluid.
