Wild Blood Hotfix #3

Balancing Adjustments to Tracking

  • We have been following your progress and activity around tracking closely, and have decided to remove all large group hunts for targets that would have dropped Silver.
  • That means every large group Tracking target will now drop ingredients, and has a chance to drop an artifact.
  • There are no changes to small group hunts yet, as we want to analyze the impact of this change without muddying the results with additional changes.
Combat Balance Change
We are keeping a very close eye on the integration of the new weapons and potions into Albion's meta. For the most part it is still too early to tell exactly how strong they are. However, one adjustment we already see needed is the reduction of the Reality Fissure range. This is necessary because Reality Fissure provided Shapeshifters in human for... Read more

Wild Blood Patch 1 - Ver. 23.010.1 - November 6, 2023

Tracking Changes

  • Now that a good number of players have made sufficient Tracking progress and overall activity for the feature is normalizing, all additional creatures which drop Silver have been removed. This means every Tracking target will now at least drop rare ingredients, with the chance of dropping artifacts as well.
  • In red zones, loot from Tracking will be protected for the Tracking party, as long as they engage in combat with the tracked creature
    • If the Tracking party did not engage in combat, loot will be protected for whoever kills the tracked creature
    • PvP-flagged players are still able to claim loot
  • Sylvian shield applied to allies during a channeling phase now removes all effects when either the shield breaks or the ally suffers a force...

It’s the spookiest time of the year - and the Allhallows event is here! For its duration you can run the limited-time Hallowed Ground dungeon for the chance to grab the very rare Jack o’ Donkey and Horse Macabre mount skins!

This dungeon can appear randomly in T4-T8 zones across the open world, and can be entered through special portals adorned with pumpkins. Once inside, you’ll find it filled with blood-curdling mobs, bone-chilling decorations, and the abominable final boss: Bob. Should you withstand its horrors and defeat this pumpkin-headed nuisance, you’ll find a special Hallowed Ground chest which, along with those ultra-rare mount skins, may contain some special Allhallows Treats. These grant a temporary boost to all non-PvP Fame... Read more

It’s not all conquering territories and killing mobs, you know. While some swashbuckling adventurers spend their time slaying mobs and fighting over castles, some lead a slower-paced life, tending the land on Albion’s long summer days.
But these rural folk need companions too - and luckily there’s a friend they can rely on: Ol’ Betsy.

Yep, for the month of July this benign bovine is available when you refer a single friend! This brand-new skin turns your Transport Ox base mount into a classic dairy cow, with a big old bell dangling from her neck. Once unlocked, it can be used by any characters on that particular server (either Albion East or West).

The Titan bundle includes the following vanity skins, which work on male and female characters alike:
