The main in-game currency. You earn gold from questing, selling, trading, fishing, looting purses, etc. There is no limit to how much gold you can hold in your inventory or warehouse. There is a limit on the maximum amount of gold that can be traded, sent via mail, and or listed on the auction house in a single transaction.
This is your main resource constraint. Labor is a system ArcheAge uses to constrain players from endless farming / gold generation as almost every action requires labor of various amounts. Labor regenerates over time and can be boosted by items and buffs.
There are two types of labor: Online and offline
Online labor is yellow and shown on the left side of the labor bar. Online labor generates at 15 labor per 5 minutes online. Online labor is server specific, and has a cap of 5,000 by default and you cannot generate more labor over the labor cap while online. The labor cap can be boosted by the use of Archeblessing (+2,000 labor cap, +5 labor per 5 minutes online).
Offline labor is blue and is shown on the right side of the labor bar. Offline labor generates at 10 labor per 5 minutes offline. Offline labor is account wide. Offline labor has a cap of 5,000 by default and you cannot generate more labor over the labor cap while offline. The labor cap can be boosted by the use of Archeblessing (+2,000 labor cap).
Offline labor cannot be generated without patron (enabled by default on AAU (Unchained)). Offline labor is consumed before online labor.
Labor Rechargers and potions:
Labor Recharger is a potion that grants a minimum of +500 labor and up to +1,000 labor to the online labor pool. These potions have diminishing returns and a cap.
|Number of Chargers||Returned Labor|
Labor Rechargers can be obtained from Manastorms (unchained) or Credits (Legacy) as well as various in-game events, daily login, compensation packs, code redemption, or archepass.
Adventurer’s Winged Elixir
This potion grants additional labor regen while online, the strength of the boost grows with each hour up to five hours total.
|1||+3 per 5 min|
|2||+5 per 5 min|
|3||+9 per 5 min|
|4||+12 per 5 min|
|5||+15 per 5 min|
If you are logged out (or crash) when the elixir changes ranks, the effect will end and you will lose the potion buff. This does not reset the cooldown and you have to wait the full time to use another one.
You gain Adventurer’s Winged Elixirs from completing guild group missions and from various events or compensation packs.
This elixir lasts for 50 minutes and grants 100 labor every 5 minutes for a total of 1,000 labor. Must be online. These are not readily available in the game and are granted for events or compensation. Occasionally in the daily login rewards.
Gilda stars are earned currency that is used to purchase house designs, vehicle designs, boat designs, costumes designs, undergarment designs, glider designs, and pet/mount souls.

Manastorm Crystals are acquired primarily through the ArchePass and sometimes through events, daily log-ins, and opening gold crates. Manastorms are a supplemental currency to obtain various items such as mounts, gliders, designs, quality of life items, power boosts, pets, powerstone pets, and vocational items.
ArcheAge (Legacy): There is a manastorm shop that has random items for sale, some are at heavy discount from normally offered prices. The shop offerings may be refreshed once per day without patron and up to 100 times per day with patron.
Unchained: The only item available for Loyalty is the ArchePass Premium Upgrade Ticket.
ArcheAge (Legacy): The loyalty store is much like the Manastorm shop described above.

(Note: some items were not included due to being discontinued. They are still buyable, but return same amount of keys upon use)
Festival Coins are gained from doing quests associated with festivals, seasonal events, and other types of events. They are not always present in the game as they come and go with associated events. All festivals use this universal coin, so if you missed your favorite one - you can buy the rewards you might have missed. The festival coin exchanger appears in the world with the festivals, but is always available on mirage isle.
Credits are purchased from using real-world money. These can be purchased on Kakao’s website.
Archeage: Unchained: The credit shop contains cosmetics (costumes). The items are bound, but giftable.
Archeage (Legacy): The credit shop contains a number of boosts, cosmetics, and items. Credits can also be acquired through the purchase of an in-game item “Apex” (through gold or barter with another player). Do not confuse this with the Fire Lunagem: Apex (unfortunately similar name).
