Albion Online

Details on the upcoming Paths to Glory update

Albion Online

06/29/2024 - Albion Online is preparing for the next major update "Paths to Glory", which will be released in July. This update will bring numerous new features and improvements that will enhance and optimize the game experience.

Introduction of the 'Paths to Glory' update

With the announcement of the next major update for Albion Online, "Paths to Glory", players can look forward to a host of new features and improvements. At the center of this update is the Albion Journal, which offers new challenges and valuable rewards. Game Director Robin Henkys gives a comprehensive overview of the upcoming changes in a Dev Talk.

Improvements to guild islands

Guilds will be able to own multiple islands, with each royal city and Caerleon having their own island. The appearance of these guild islands will now match the biome of the respective city, making for a more varied and visually appealing design.

Changes to weapons

A significant innovation concerns the weapon mechanics: Players can now double overload their weapons in combat, which extends the duration of the overload but also increases the risk of destroying the weapon. In addition, all spells can be used on weapons of level 4 and higher, which significantly increases the gameplay variety in the lower levels.

Changes to the streets of Avalon

The streets of Avalon are also receiving extensive adjustments. Standardized mob levels and adapted connections from the Open World should ensure a better balance. Blue and yellow zones lead to level 4 roads, while red and black zones lead to level 6 roads. Level 8 roads are now exclusive to Deep Roads and Raid Clusters.

Content and rewards

The changes also include a reduction in resource gathering areas, with increased respawn rates. New PvE areas have been added that offer less glory but more loot. In addition, you can now track in the streets of Avalon and the Open World.

Activity-based spawn rates

Another important feature is the activity-based spawn rates, which adjust the availability of treasures, mobs and resources to the activity on the servers. During prime time, content is easier to find, while rewards are more competitive when activity is low.

New crystal weapons

The update also brings new crystal weapons to the game, including the Twin Slayers, Dreadstorm Monarch and the Exalted Staff. These weapons offer unique abilities and expand the player's arsenal.

Further improvements

Other improvements include a Ready Check function for groups, new maps for corrupted dungeons, three new activity events, improved filtering options in the leaderboard display and a rescaling of the Destiny Board for desktop users. The "Paths to Glory" update will be released in July and will bring numerous new features to Albion Online. The next Dev Talk will take a closer look at the Albion Journal and its unique rewards.
