A new Albion Online patch – Rise of Avalon Patch 12 – is now out and brings several changes to Corrupted Dungeons.

The changes to Corrupted Dungeons touch on increasing the amount of rare and legendary loot chests in Corrupted Dungeons. However, rare and legendary book chests are reduced. Additionally, Stalker and Slayer dungeon boss chest values are reduced by 17.5%. However, boss loot received when you kill another player has increased from 50% to 100%, and is meant to promote PvP.

The patch also touches on silver, Satchels of Insight, Respec, smart cluster queue, mobile, and several fixes which include:

  • Fixed an issue where Smart Cluster Queue UI sometimes showed incorrect distance to exit
  • Emergency Heal (Guardian Helmet) now affects a maximum of 5 targets (including caster) as intended
  • Fixed an issue where dashes/pulls/knockbacks would sometimes interact incorrectly with ground spell effects (such as Firewall)
  • Onslaught (Hand of Justice):
    • Size of damage radius now matches that of other effect radii while spinning (3.5m)
    • Maximum number of targets is now the same for pull, stun and damage while spinning (10 enemies)
  • Vile Curse (Cursed Staffs) now triggers AoE escalation (for example via Area of Decay) as intended
  • Tier 5 and 7 Rock Elementals have relearned their Tremor spell
  • Additional graphical, animation, audio, terrain, and localization fixes
