Changelog: Lancelot Patch #9

Lancelot Patch #9 - Ver. 1.11.362 / REV 119971 - 20 June 2018

Known Issues / Clarifications:


Hellgate Changes
  • Players can now fight their own guild and alliance members in Hellgates when they appear in an enemy party
  • Yellow Zone 5v5 Hellgates have been adjusted as follows:
    • Fame Factor: 1.5 → 2.5
    • Loot Factor: 1.75 → 2.25
    • Silver Factor: 1.75 → 2.25
    • Improved the loot table for the Hellgate Boss, so that it now drops better loot on average
  • Fixed a loot table bug for chests in black and red zone 2v2 Hellgates - their rewards were sometimes much higher than intended, and should now be in line with comparable Hellgates
  • To prevent solo and duo farming, gatekeepers for 5v5 Hellgates (red and black zones) now use a new spell ("Disembowel") when aggro'd by 3 or fewer people
Daily Season Points Adjustments
  • The daily season points earned for Outlands territories has been adjusted as follows (the cost of placing mages, as well as the energy they drop, has also been updated accordingly):
    • Mercia: 384 → 336 (-12.5%)
    • Cumbria: 288 → 288 (no change)
    • Anglia: 192 → 240 (+25%)
Mount/Dismount Audio
  • To cut down on unnecessary noise in cities, mount/dismount sounds are now only audible to the player performing them within city limits (as these sounds are an important element of PvP, they will remain audible to all players in the open world)
Faction Warfare Preparation
  • As a teaser for the upcoming content update, builder NPCs have begun constructing faction headquarters in each of the Royal cities
GvG Updates
  • Added soft item power cap to red zone GvGs (Item Power = 800 / Scaling Factor = 0.2, meaning everything above IP 800 will be scaled down to 20% of its normal power)
  • To prevent furniture from being used as a blockade during GvGs, outdoor furniture is now hidden during GvG matches, and new furniture cannot be placed during matches

About This Game

Albion Online is a sandbox MMORPG set in an open medieval fantasy world. The game features a player-driven economy where nearly every item is player-crafted. Combine armor pieces and weapons suited to your playstyle in a unique, classless "you are what you wear" system. Explore the world, take on other adventurers in thrilling battles, conquer territories, and build a home.

Craft. Trade. Conquer.
Dive in now and become part of a living fantasy world where everybody matters.

Key Features

From basic tools and clothes to mighty armors and powerful weapons – nearly every item in the game is crafted by players, in player-constructed buildings, from resources gathered by players. Buy, sell, and trade with other players at local marketplaces all across the world of Albion. Craft rare and powerful items, then sell them to the highest bidder and grow your fortune.

With Albion Online's classless combat system, switching playstyles is as easy as switching gear. Test out new equipment anytime and swap out weapons, armor, and mounts to suit any situation. Hone your character’s skills by crafting new items, or by simply using your favorite equipment.

From solo to small-group to large-scale battles, you'll need strategy, tactics and skill to prevail. Test your skills against other adventurers in high-risk, high-reward full-loot fights, and use every tactic at your disposal to emerge victorious.

Join a guild and carve out your own piece of Albion in tactical guild-versus-guild battles. Take over territories for access to incredible resources. Build guild halls and crafting stations, and conquer entire cities to levy taxes and grow your wealth. Track your guild's progress on a constantly-updated leaderboard, and take on leadership roles to bring your guild to new heights of glory.

Claim a city plot or private island and make it your own. Plant crops to sell or craft into food, raise your own livestock and mounts, and place crafting stations for other players to use for a fee. Stock your house with custom furniture and trophies, build chests to store your growing collection of loot, and hire laborers to keep everything at your homestead running smoothly.

From small scouting bands to massive bosses, from dungeons to full-blown faction bases, the inhabitants of Albion’s open world await your challenge. Explore five beautiful biomes, each with its own challenges. Take on six different factions, each with unique enemies that require their own strategy. Partake in solo or group expeditions – or seek out the ultimate thrill by facing demons and other players alike in Hellgates.

Whether you prefer Windows, Mac, Linux, or even Android or iOS (mobile currently in beta), one account lets you play on all platforms, with all players on a single shared server.
