Albion Online Dev Talk - Nimue QoL Updates



Nimue, the fifth major post-release content update for Albion Online, arrives on November 21. In out newest Dev Talk, Lino Claudius, User Interface Designer for the game, discusses some of the major quality-of-life changes coming with this update.

No time to watch the video? Read on for a summary of his talk:

Party Finder
The goal of the Party Finder is to bring more players into social groups, thereby providing easier access to the open world. We want to emphasize that this is not an automatic matchmaking system, but rather a lobby-based system similar to "custom game" features in other games.

There are two ways to use the Party Finder:
  • The first is by forming a party and opening it to other players
  • The second is by joining a pre-existing party
When creating a party, the leader generates a searchable party by giving specific parameters (activity, minimum IP, maximum group size, party description, etc.). Other players can see the party (like an open lobby) and view its details, such as the gear other members have equipped. They can then either apply or join automatically depending on the party's settings. Players who join successfully can then select potential roles to fill.

Additionally, there is a special function within the Party Finder for guilds and alliances which allows party leaders to restrict applications only to members of their own guild or alliance. This functionality can be used to quickly assemble a party that allies can join automatically without having to invite them one by one, instead allowing for more time in the open world.

Parties in the Open World
Visible Party Roles: The list of roles used in Expeditions and the Arena are now available in the open world. When forming a party, roles are automatically assigned based on gear, and can be overwritten or turned off as desired. This improves the visibility of key players like tanks or healers in parties, allowing for more streamlined open-world combat.

This also opens up future development potential to improve party play even more: for example, in a future update we may add different-colored dots on the minimap based on these roles.

Target Markers: With the Nimue update, party leaders will be able to mark mobs, enemy players, or friendly players with one of six different icons. These icons can be used in any open-world setting, and will only be visible to party members, allowing better communication during open-world PvE and ZvZ fights.

Minimap Ping: Minimap ping is now visible for all members of a party. In addition, it has received a visual overhaul: it’s now quicker, more visible on different backgrounds, and focuses on the target point instead of radiating outwards. In addition, we have implemented a hotkey to create a ping at your current position.

Guild Account Logs and Other Features
Based on popular demand, Silver transactions can now be tracked in the guild UI. While this system does not yet include taxes, it will immediately allow for better control of currency flow, particularly within larger guilds.

Other features coming with Nimue include:
  • Improved crop and furniture placement
  • Stack and sort buttons in the inventory UI
  • Automatic Learning Point spending that can be toggled per node

That's all for today - thanks for watching, and you can expect to see additional Dev Talks in the coming weeks.

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.
