Albion Online Updates


Now Live!

Kay Patch #2 / Ver. 1.10.351 - REV 107915 / 10 January 2018

Feel the Breath of Winter!

From January 10th to January 31st, the Breath of Winter will blanket Albion in snow and frost. Featured events include:

  • Good Deeds, a unique world quest chain only available during Breath of Winter.
  • The Icy Battleground, a PvP battleground accessible during Breath of Winter from four portal stones in Caerleon.
  • Ice and Fire, a special winter-themed expedition that will put your group’s skills to the test. This special event expedition does not grant fame.
  • Time to Go Home, a time-boxed and mostly streamed event accompanied by Yule Stag raffles.
  • Time-limited rewards, special tokens, and additional community events.

Check out the event page for full details, and keep an eye out for additional updates on our news page.


  • Added Hotkey to toggle AutoRun on and off (Default: NumLock). Autorun stops with any new (non-UI) input.
  • Added no-show protection to GvG fights:
    • Attacks on home territories and watchtowers now cost 2,000,000 silver (formerly 100,000), and attacks on cities now cost 10,000,000 silver.
    • 90% of this amount is returned if the attacker manages to score at least 1 point.
    • Additionally, 5% of the silver is awarded to the winner of the fight.
    • Result: if the initiator of the attack participates in the fight, this change will only produce a slight increase in the final attack cost, while strongly discouraging no-shows.
    • Siege camp attack costs have been adjusted accordingly.
