As you see the most expensive Archeum Pack gets the most valuable bonuses including Alpha Acess and the best title "Trailblazer" +3 to all stats. These bonuses are the best because Alpha Access is impossible to get without purchasing Archeum Pack. If you want to participate in Alpha testing you will have to get this pack.
Exclusive title "Trailblazer" is also great investment if you are planning to play the game for a long time. This title will help you to become stronger and thus level faster. The title will also help you during the end-game. You will have an advantage over your opponents. Archeum Pack will also give you a lot of valuable resources.
All 3 packs give guaranteed access to Beta testing. Find out more about Beta Testing.
You will also get 4 days early access with any pack, meaning you can start playing ArcheAge 4 days before the official release. These 4 days can help you to level your character and become powerful force faster than those players without a pack.
Note: you can purchase Founders’ Pack from official website only before the game is released. These packs will become unavailable after public release and you will not be able to get amazing bonuses. You can still buy any pack during Head Start but it’s the last time you can do it.
When do you get items?
All owners of Founder’s Pack will get their items in the beginning of 4 days early access. Thus you will have advantage right from the start.
Upgrading to higher level pack
It’s possible to upgrade Silver and Gold packs up to Archeum from users’ area at Trion Worlds website. Such upgrade will give you opportunity to benefit from higher level pack. For example if you upgrade from Silver to Archeum you will get access to alpha immediately.
