Is everyone super-excited about Albion Online’s final beta test coming next month? Not only is there something magical about the word “final” in game development, but the fact is that this beta will come stocked with new and reworked features as well.

One of those revamped concepts is the new destiny board. The devs said that players should find this new version of the character build screen most welcome: “The destiny board is undergoing several changes, making it easier to unlock items while still requiring time and effort to become a powerful specialist. Gatherers and refiners will also have more options to specialize at the tier of their choice.”

With the August 1st patch, players will also see immensely powerful artifact weapons, the ability to change up spells on the go, and a revamped enchantment system.

Albion Online Launches First Content Update

Albion Online is still in closed beta, yet the game’s first content update has already gone live! Called Aurelius, the update brings quality of life improvements, new dungeons, new spells, and much more!

Quality of Life

With the Aurelius update come a whole bunch of usability and user interface improvements. These improvements include a forced combat mode, which makes sure there’ll be no more accidental gathering or looting while in combat. Players can now also move by right-clicking on a destination. You will now be able to get to your destination without any distractions.


The newly introduced Spell Ready Highlight will make sure you no longer miss your spells when they’re ready. More chat channels are implemented as well, such as the Guild recruiting and major languages channels. Last but not least, an automatic retry or cluster exit will save players a lot of running, as they don’t have to run in and out of the exit area anymore.


Albion Online will have no shortage of dungeons with this update, as plenty of them are spread throughout Albion, populated by the Keepers, with some of them now having multiple entrances from different clusters.


Explore tree dungeon themes: Temple, Residence, and Mushroom Cave.

Encounter three new mobs: Knifelings, Marksmen, and Rainmakers.

Three new bosses waiting for bold adventurers: Seer Gallifax, Chieftain, and Old Grandpa.

New gateway system: certain gateway mobs spawn a portal to a deeper, more dangerous dungeon when killed.

You can read more about the new dungeon types here. To help battle the new mobs, ten new spells and abilities have been added, from a charging blade for swordfighters to an all-new AoE attack for the Crossword. There’s also a Christmas special, in which the cold-blooded Uncle Frost roams Albion’s dungeons and drops Christmas hats for those strong enough to best him! You can also start snowball fights in Albion Online’s festively illuminated cities and shoot fireworks.

More information on the Aurelius update and what the future of Albion Online will look like can be found on the official Albion Online website.

Cross Platform MMORPG Albion Online Gets First Lore Book

As one of 2P’s most anticipated mobile MMORPG in 2016, the cross platform title Albion Online has caught much attention. Albion Online and published fantasy author Peter Newman have teamed up to dive deep into the world of Albion and published an exciting novel about the ventures of its inhabitants in both paperback and eBook formats.

The book not only tells the tale of Albion Online’s world, but it also includes the adventures of some players and guilds from the actual game. It will give you a great opportunity to roam and delve into the lands of Albion even when taking some time off from playing the game itself.


Albion Online has only been in closed beta for a couple months, and you can visit our hub for more details. If you want to jump in now, you can buy one of the premium accounts on its official site.



New Albion Online Teaser Trailer

Sandbox Interactive unveiled their newest alpha test teaser video today for their upcoming sandbox cross-platform MMO Albion Online. “You are what you wear” is the main feature in Albion Online, and their latest trailer shows that off. Changing your outfit completely changes the way you play the game. Players can sign up for the closed beta test here if you are interested. Albion Online will go into beta in early 2014.

“Players will quickly need to learn that they cannot judge a player’s capabilities solely by what they’re wearing now,” said Yasmine, the Sanbox Interactive Community Manager. “Because equipment dictates what a player is capable of, assuming someone wearing simple farming gear is not a powerful player can be, as the video shows, quite a costly mistake!”



The original purpose of Albion Online‘s learning point system was to create a balance mechanism for players with varying amounts of time to spend in the game. All well and good, but it caused another problem insofar as players could level up to a new tier and then wind up stuck there for an extended period of time. So the new version of the system makes learning points a bonus to acquire skills faster rather than the core mechanism for skills.

Learning points now acts as a quick way to level up to the next tier of fame, while fame requirements have been increased by a large amount. The net result is that hardcore players can still grind away after spending learning points, but it’ll be much slower going, and the gap between players who can grind and those who cannot remains small. It’s an interesting revision to the system, and players will have a chance to take it for a spin during the game’s closed beta.

If you see a frog hopping around in your MMO of choice, you probably don’t think about it too much. Either it’s just a bit of background decoration or it’s exactly what you need to kill if you want to farm up crafting supplies. Albion Online will not introduce you to a whole new world of frog simulation and elaborate new frontiers in amphibian interaction, but it is adding frogs into its swamp biome, and the most recent development diary explains how frogs went from an idea to a reality.

All right, it was more a progression where the idea of a toad became an idea of a frog and then an animated reality of a frog, but the important point is that it’s the process of creating a frog. There are even a few bits of sample hopping frog animation included. In the unlikely event that you think about frogs a lot, this may be the most important development diary you read all day.


Albion Online Introduces Upgradable Islands


In preparation for the closed beta of the first true cross-platform sandbox MMORPG Albion Online this November, developer Sandbox Interactive continues to bring good news to the fans of the Albion Universe – one of the most unique features, Albion’s system of Private Islands, receives a highly anticipated ‘upgrade’. After listening to community requests to expand upon the idea, the developers decided to improve the player experience by introducing different island levels with additional building and farming plots, as well as a broader variety of decorative options so that players can customize the environment.


In the major cities, players can purchase Private Islands as a hideaway place, where they can build houses and workshops, even decorate and farm. With the new system, the number of farming and building plots can now be increased with an investment of Silver. The upgrade clears off the rubble and any other obstructions allowing to expand the area which offers numerous opportunities on improving player’s own little private haven. A total of five levels of Private Islands is in the works, each providing different customization options for the player to make these habitats truly unique.

I won’t pop FFXIV Dark Arts at all

Well, later you will get Sole Survivor and Carve and Spit which really help with managing your mp between trash pulls. I generally try to enter each trash pull with close to full mp because then I know I have a comfortable FFXIV Gil zone to make I can unleash all of my initial skills for each combo setup without having to stop and start working towards my mp management. Once all of the mobs start getting to 25%> I won’t pop Dark Arts at all, unless I have to otherwise I run the risk of not having enough mp for the next pull. Plus, at my gear level even Soul Eater without Dark Arts heals decent. If I remember correctly I think I get about 1200-1300 or so without Dark Arts. I can’t remember at the moment, it may be slightly lower than that. But it is still enough to assist the healer and let me regenerate mp at the same time.

I see your point there. Come to think of it there have been times where I’ve screwed myself in mp and had to quickly pop some syphon strikes to get the mp back. I’ll try to hold off on DA when the trash gets low. But my next question is about abyssal drain. I just got this ability and I’m wondering what the ideal situation would be to use it. I know it increases enmity, but atm I’m not having any trouble establishing a good amount of enmity. And with DA it replenishes hp, but is it best saved for when I have more than 3 mobs on me? Is it even worth it to use it on bosses?

Abyssal drain in the new 24 man Weeping City for the trash is amazing highly undervalued as an AoE mob grabber helps in big AoE situations but you need Blood Price to keep it going or it’ll be too mana intensive. The HP gain is worth it since it can crit giving you a ton of HP back if used correctly with CDs your healer(s) will love you. I recommend using this for long distance AoE pulls where mobs are grouped together, remember target the small enemies with mobs that are bigger/huge as you’ll get all of them when targeting the smaller guys and only the target (big guy) if you hit them with it!
