Lancelot, the third major post-launch content update for Albion Online, is now live! But what’s new?
Cast a line into Albion's rivers, lakes and oceans to catch fish or occasionally other treasure via a fun minigame. Different biomes and settings offer different types of fish, as do freshwater and saltwater. Explore an all-new Destiny Board path and discover new fishing gear. Seek out rare fish that offer increased bonuses or even land a catch worthy of a trophy for your own home.
Guild Quality-of-Life Improvements
With a completely new Guild UI system, guild leaders can delegate rights, assign roles, and manage resources with ease, allowing all guild members to spend less time on administration and more time playing. An updated Chest Log lets guilds track their deposits and withdrawals, and new Guild Vaults allow for easy access to items and resources, allowing for a shared guild economy.
New Hellgates and Artifact Armors
Lancelot will bring brand-new 2v2 Hellgates with full-loot rules, offering players easy access to spontaneous small-scale PvP. There will also be new Level 3 Artifact Armors, which will offer a wide range of offensive, defensive, and utility spells.
Server Performance Improvements
Over the past months, as we've developed the features that will make up the Lancelot update, Sandbox Interactive have also introduced numerous performance improvements in tandem with these new systems. These improvements will go live alongside the new features of the Lancelot update, which should offer reduced lag and increased performance, particularly during large-scale battles.
GvG Season Improvements
The second Guild versus Guild Season will start on March 17 with updated rules and mechanics that will make territory raiding and castle control much more interesting, as well as make it much more difficult to score “flawless victories”. This will open the whole seasonal system up to a broader range of possibilities for all players.
In the Raven's Claws is a new mid-tier Group Expedition that tasks adventurers with rescuing a captured agent from the clutches of the Disciples of Morgana before he reveals critical secrets. Descend into a nightmarish oubliette and battle deadly new mobs hell-bent on preventing your escape... then vanquish the final tormentor and set your prisoner free!
