The Knightfall Patch is Here
Knightfall is here! This major patch expands and improves on the features introduced with the Beyond the Veil update - and to mark the occasion, we've produced a brand-new trailer:
To celebrate the launch, we’re also holding a contest where you can share your perfect Knightfall build. Head over to The Albion Online Subreddit and submit yours for a chance to win!
And to keep the celebration going, we're also offering double Twitch Drops from May 8-15. These additional drops can be earned by watching any Albion stream that has Drops enabled. (To learn more about Twitch Drops, click here.)
Read on to learn what's new with Knightfall…
The Mists: Opportunity and Mystery
Knightfall brings some major new features and improvements to the Mists, offering players of all types and levels a chance at big rewards. Coffers are treasures that only reveal their location to nearby players, and Caches offer individualized loot for clearing mob camps. Knightfall Abbey, a mysterious dungeon hidden within the Mists, is an atmospheric realm of crumbling stone and beautiful stained-glass windows. Seek out treasures and ancient shrines that offer powerful buffs, because you'll need all the help you can get - not only against other adventurers, but against the dungeon’s former residents as well.
New Items, Traders, and Standing
Knightfall also brings brand-new items and crafting components, plus a new face in Brecilien, Eralia Wayfarer, who will trade with adventurers with sufficient standing. New Avalonian and Brecilien Capes offer unique defensive capabilities, Mystic Owl mounts carry you swiftly through the world, and new currencies and items await your discovery. The Roads of Avalon have also been updated with new enemies, new paths, and greater mob density, with some mobs now dropping Avalonian Energy to further link the Roads to the new cape lines.
