ArcheAge allows two types of player status: free-to-play and Patron. As a Patron one pays a fee for certain perks. Patron status can be paid once for a limited time period or as recurring fee. Payment for Patron status is possible with regular money or through APEX (the latter can be traded at the Auction House among player).
