Changelog: Oberon Patch 7



Oberon Patch 7 - Ver. 1.14.381 / REV 142821 - 22 May 2019

Chest Loot Changes
Chests in Randomized Dungeons are now loot-protected for the character or party that dealt the most damage to the last mob guarding the chest. Note that flagged characters who are hostile toward the character/party that killed the last mob can circumvent this loot protection and open the chest.

Invulnerability in Underway and Passageways
The invulnerability bubble in the Underway and all other passageways now behaves as in other open-world zones (expires after 30 seconds or after moving 150 meters). Previously, these areas were classified as dungeons, meaning the buff would expire after 15 seconds or after moving 10 meters.

Other Changes
  • Potions can now be used while silenced
  • Stacked furniture items now use the ground level as reference, rather than the level of the item below them - this may affect the way some furniture items appear when placed on top of each other
  • Loot tables for Lesser Hellgates in blue zones have been adjusted to follow the same setup as other Hellgates :
    • ⅓ of the previous drop chance for fragments (Runes, Souls, Relics)
    • 5x the previous drop chance for artifacts
    • 2x the previous drop chance for faction cape tokens
Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where the loot chest UI would appear empty if the chest was reopened after loot protection expired
  • Cooldowns for self-buffs are now bound to the item that triggered them as intended
  • Improved tooltips for Whirlwind, Holy Touch, and Tear Apart
  • Fixed an issue where the "Tourist" achievement could not be completed
  • Keeper Taproots now give progress towards Imbuer's Journals as intended
  • Fixed an issue where moved items disappeared in battlevaults during GvGs if character opened battlevault in the GvG cluster before the fight began
  • Debuff of Deadly Shot (Warbow) can now be stacked on a single target by multiple casters as intended
  • Fixed an issue where casting Freezing Wind with default mouse controls moved the caster toward the spell
  • Fixed an issue where all tiers of Hellish Sicklehead had the T5 description
  • Additional minor worldmap, UI, terrain, and localization fixes

Streamer Spotlight: Shozen and the AO Daily Show



Viewers of AlbionTV know Shozen as one of the game's most prolific and experienced casters, who (along with his co-host Lewpac) has covered Albion's GvG scene for years. Beginning on May 20, he'll be joining Bogul (a fellow Albion expert, currently in charge of the Albion Online Wiki) for the AO Daily Show, a daily rundown of all things Albion that focuses on a broad range of topics. We talked to him about his history as a caster, his new show, and the current state of the game.

Tell us a bit about your background. How did you get into streaming?

I've worked in video games and entertainment for most of my life. A little over two years ago while on a break, Bogul approached me about creating an Albion Online news show. At the time I was enjoying Albion Online a lot and wanted to do something, anything to make the game better. After a couple months of prep, Albion Informer was born – to this day the greatest Albion Online podcast ever produced in English. After about six months we were no longer able to find the time necessary to keep Albion Informer alive.

Evoque, knowing AI was ending, asked me to join the AlbionTV team and I happily accepted. After a rocky start, AlbionTV found its footing and we have continued to grow for the last year. Now with the success of not only AlbionTV but also the game itself, we have the opportunity to revive Albion Informer as the AO Daily Show. 

The inaugural episodes of the new show launch this week. What's the show all about?

The players. While each day we will be discussing official and unofficial news, recent and upcoming GvGs, alliance and guild changes, and gameplay, the show is fundamentally about the players and their stories. All the news, drama, and in-depth analysis is there for one reason: to give us an excuse to talk about the players that make up this crazy world of Albion Online.

What topics are you starting out with for the show? What topics do you hope to cover in the future?

As we do the groundwork of establishing the show, we'll often give spotlights to players. As we get further into it, we’ll get more into mechanics and do feature highlights, but early on we want to focus on the players and tell their stories. This week we’ll start off by doing spotlights on some of the most prominent Twitch streamers and content creators.



How have the game and community changed since you started hosting AlbionTV?

For starters, it got much bigger. For about the last year both the game population and our audience have been growing and they're really in a good place now.

Aside from the population changes, I just recently looked back at our launch week shows and I was shocked at how few GvGs there used to be. I was amazed at how Crystal Realm Battles and practice GvGs have now enabled more and more players to engage with the GvG process, and as a result the amount of highly competitive teams has increased a lot. That's what has changed the most.

What is your take on the state of the game since the free-to-play launch? Where do you see the game going in the future?

I’m excited to see a new audience play a more polished version of Albion. When Albion launched, it was not the same game as it is today. It's just plain better; the meta is much more diverse. I feel like I say this every month, but i think it's true.

The game has gotten new features at a good rate, and the majority have been well received. The last few patches have done a fantastic job of adding some of the most requested quality-of-life features, and it's made for a more enjoyable experience. I’m happy to be a part of that.

Do you have a favorite memory from your time hosting AlbionTV?

During one of the early invasions, two guild leaders met in the middle of a massive ZvZ with literally hundreds of players. They faced off in the middle of a bridge, and it seemed like their guilds made room for them to fight 1v1 amidst a massive zerg. It was a true "Clash of Titans" moment.

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.



Albion Online is a true cross-platform MMO experience. 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. Forge alliances with other players worldwide and take part in massive battles to determine the fate of Albion.
