A bread and butter ship of the Gilnean fleet, the Archibald-class sloop replaced the formerly dominant Teran-class during Genn Greymane's middle reign. Though it has been modified several times over the years, the sloop's sleek yet durable design has stood the test of time and was seen during the Second War. It was designed off of ships made during Archibald Greymane's, its name sake, reign though was never fully completed until just before the advent of the First War.

The Archibald-class sloop is meant for sleek combat and smaller crews. Armed with grape-shot and standard cannons, the Archibald is meant to outfox and swarm their targets. Hosting a total of fifteen guns, the Archibald can swap to their specialized grape-shot at closer range to unleash a devastating payload to enemy ships. From afar, they fire their standard cannons, using their small size to keep enemies from closing in.

The Archibald has been replaced in recent times by the Duskmist-class Corvette. While slightly larger than the Archibald, the two perform the same role with the Duskmist holding several innovations over the older classification of vessel, thus leading to the Archibald's steady retirement.
