Albion Online has received a hotfix which resolves an issue with silence from invisibility shrines.

There appeared to be an error from the recently released Queen 14 patch. While that patch brought about a bunch of mobile improvements and queue improvements, it seems to have introduced an issue with the silence buff,

“We are aware of a recent bug which causes the Silence debuff from the Invisibility Shrines around the Portals not to work, allowing players to attack others while being invisible.”

The team went further, explaining that abusing this bug was considered an exploit under their Terms and Conditions,

“We consider abusing this bug to be an exploit under clause 15.5.4 of our Terms and Conditions and those who abuse this bug will be sanctioned accordingly. If you see anyone abusing this bug from this post onwards, please file a report by writing to [email protected] and provide any evidence you might have (video confirmation of the exploit).”

The servers went down briefly and, fortunately, it seems that the bug was fixed with Queen Hotfix 14.1. Carry on!
