May 2nd is destined for glory thanks to the planned arrival of Albion Online’s midseason patch.
“On May 2, we’ll be launching a new patch that will bring several new features and updates to the world of Albion,” Sandbox Interactive explains. “It will bring numerous updates to the metagame and combat, including adjustments to the value of siphoned energy, the removal of GvG mage bonuses, a rework of siege camps, and a wide range of weapon and armor balancing changes.”
Don’t like your build? You’ll be able to take advantage of the new re-spec system that allows players to “trade skill masteries between different skill paths” at the cost of combat fame.
One of the more original features in MMOs is the GvG training system.
“As the first step toward a fully realized GvG training system, players can now conduct zero-cost, zero-risk GvG training battles. This will allow newer guilds to build team skills, and give more seasoned guilds the opportunity to test out new strategies and builds. In its initial phase, this system will operate via a chat prompt, and battles will take place in a choice of multiple settings. In future iterations, the system will be built up further, allowing for more sophisticated matchmaking and a choice of lethality and GvG maps.”
