Albion Online Updates

Wild Blood

Coming October 16

Beyond the Veil Patch 9 - Ver. 22.090.1 - May 30, 2023

Travel Mode Improvements

Travel Mode has been significantly expanded based on feedback:

  • Now persists through region transitions
  • Players can select whether the map should be focused on the character or remain in the center of the screen
  • The transparency of the map and map markers can now be set separately
  • Minimum transparency is now 30%
  • Button added to open Region Map

Roads of Avalon Mob Camps

The Knightfall patch included a technical change to resolve an issue with camp upgrades not matching mob upgrades in the Roads of Avalon. Resolving this issue unintentionally resulted in mob upgrade frequencies decreasing rather than chest upgrades increasing.

This change was not intentional, and camps should return to the overall reward values found prior to that patch. Avalonian mobs found in the same mob camp in the Roads will now be of the same tier, upgraded camps can now be found much more frequently by solo players and small groups, and camps with upgrades in the low- to mid-level range can be cleared more easily.

We will continue to monitor rewards found in the Roads to ensure they're returning to their previous values.
