Lands Awakened Patch 2 - Ver. 19.020.1 - December 20, 2021

Crystal Spider Spawn Changes

    • Not enough mobs were reaching this stage, resulting in less global Might gain than intended
    • The overall number in the world should now be higher as a result of this change

Throughout it all, the Albion community was as supportive as ever, and with the continued engagement of veteran players, combined with ever-increasing new player numbers, the game had its biggest year yet.
