ARc Currency – How does it affect me?

We no longer use ARc Currency on the WNG cluster. Check out our ARKShop guide here.

ARc currency is the in game reward system that WickedNinjaGames uses. A lot of thought has gone into the implementation of this. We felt that it should not be an enforced idea, and it should not affect your gaming experience detrimentally, but rather used by the player to give them a hand up when they really need it. Or to remove some of the grind. Nothing is locked down behind a paywall. Therefore everything is doable without spending a penny.

Types of ARc Currency

There are different denominations of the ARc currency, this is what they are worth:

Gold ARc Bar = 1 ARc
Titanium ARc Bar = 10 ARc
Iridium ARc Bar = 50 ARc
Platinum ARc Bar = 100 ARc
Thorium ARc Bar = 500 ARc
Khorium = 1000 ARc

Where do I get some ARc currency?

ARc currency will drop from a wide range of things on all of the maps that are on the cluster. And you can spend it in the Reward Vault. More on the Reward Vault in a little while. To start out here’s a list of activities that will get you some ARc to spend.

  • Claim your free starter pack. Gives ARc and number of useful items including a Pteranodon and saddle.
  • Vote for our servers. Also gives you free ARc currency. Thanks for supporting us!
  • Get 10 ARc for every hour of continuous play. As a thank you.
  • 10 ARc a day as an income. Which can be raised further by getting a Supporter Rank.
  • You can buy it in our online store if you so wish.
  • Supporting the servers by getting a Supporter Rank. Provides a monthly lump sum of ARc. For you to use as you see fit.
  • Supply Crates – Arc will drop from all Supply Crates. Land, sea, deep sea, desert and deep desert all have a chance to drop ARc. The more powerful the beacon, the more ARc you will receive. So get to those beacons before the others do.
  • Cave Loot Crates – All the cave loot crates may contain ARc. So get them before someone else does.
  • Bosses – All our bosses on every map that would normally drop loot will drop ARc. You will always get ARc to the value of the element the boss would usually drop. You can then use your ARc to purchase the element from the Reward Vault on any map.
  • Mini Bosses – Some maps have a mini boss, for example the brood mother on Valguero. She also has a chance to drop some ARc.

The Reward Vault! How do I get one?
