Races & Factions

ArcheAge is home to six major races: the spiritual Nuians, secretive Elves, and crafty Dwarves share the western continent, while the nomadic Firran, cunning Harani, and fearsome Warborn inhabit the continent to the east.
Loose ties connect the neighboring races, but allegiances are fluid, forever complicated by the whims of pirate factions sailing, trading, and pillaging at will.

Nuians

Called the Conquerors of the Continent, Nuians possess a deeply spiritual culture that revolves around worshipping Nui, the Goddess of the Hereafter. They revere the traditions, beauty, and harmony of their fallen kingdom, and fight fearlessly to bring these traits to their new land.

Skills

Warrior Architects

Frequent rebellions and civil wars have led the Nuians to become quick builders, reducing construction time for houses and castles -30% for 5 min.

Nui's Blessing

Nui's Blessing increases Strength, Spirit, Intelligence, Stamina, and Agility +8% for 5 min.
Effect gradually decreases.
Can't be used during Nui's Consolation buff.

Elves

Elves seclude themselves deep in the forest, avoiding other races as much as possible. Though envied for their beauty, their behavior is considered incomprehensible: hoping for an honorable death, they often deliberately seek out danger. They feel the ultimate honor is vengeance for their past defeats.

Skills

Lithe Flow

Increases swim speed +5% and allows you to hold your breath underwater for 30 more seconds for 5 min.

Earth Lover

Increases the Maximum Health of nearby allies' mounts within 10 m + 10% for 5 min

Dwarves

Known for being independent and inventive, Dwarves largely withdrew from the rest of the world following the Demon War. But with the recent rise of their old foes, the Warborn, the Dwarves are returning to Erenor places and politics, bringing new technology with them. Most people assume the Dwarves simply want to keep the Warborn in check, but Dwarven motivation--and ambition--are rarely so simplistic.

Summon Juggernaut

Activates Juggernaut form for 5 min. Only Lv30+ Dwarves can learn this skill.

Warborn

Once the mindless servants of Orchidna, the Warborn were unleashed upon the world as bloodthirsty beasts. Beneath the rage and fury, however, lurked captured souls, wielded like weapons against their will. Now they seek to redeem the sins of their past.

Skills

Brute Strength

Increases Move Speed + 10% while carrying trade packs for 5 min.

Ravager

Activates Ravager form for 5 min. Only Lv30+ Warborn can learn this skill. Ravager form gets stronger as it levels up.

Firran

The restless, nomadic Firran roam the wilds, fueled by dreams of protecting nature and reclaiming their former glory. They believe every life--no matter how small--is not only valuable, but plays a critical role in the natural world, and that every Firran must strive to find their purpose and play their part.

Skills
