As a game with strong sandbox influence, the majority of the content in game is generated by players. ArcheAge features 21 different crafting professions that help to fill the world with everything from potions and weapons to warships and houses.
Almost every craft based, non quest action costs labor points to perform. The cost can be as small as 1-2 points for small things like picking flowers and as large a several dozen for more advanced actions like building.
Labor Points are gained/refilled over time. A non-premium user will gain 5 points per 5 minutes of play and 0 points per 5 minutes while offline. A premium member will gain 10 points every 5 minutes and 5 points every 5 minutes while offline.
Each profession has 5 different levels of mastery- Basic, Novice, Veteran, Expert, and Master.
Increasing the level of mastery in a skill offers benefits such as increased action speed, decreased labor costs, and mass production of items in addition to the regular increase on craftable items.
Here's a closer look at the 21 professions.
