The value to determine how much a mob can take before it dies is called Effective Hit Points or short EHP. Since we don't have any automatic mitigation mechanics in Albion (e.g. dodge, parry) EHP can be computed simply by dividing their HP with their damage reduction. So for example a mob with 1000 HP and 60% damage reduction from armor would have 2500 EHP (1000 / (1 - 0.6)). Before this change we used a factor to increase the HP of mobs as much as the reaver bonus increased the players damage. …

Testserver Patch Notes - Percival Update

2 July: added the following under Mob Changes: Higher-tier mobs now have more armor instead of more health to compensate for the player's Reaver bonus damage. This means player damage dealt to mobs will be more or less equal across tiers - for example, if you deal 100 damage versus a tier 4 mob you will deal 90 damage versus a tier 8 mob. Previously, if you dealt 100 damage versus Tier 4 you would deal 400 damage versus Tier 8. Along with this change, the damage of poison potions versus mobs has…

@Drift No, only the new skins we produced and the armored guild horses will be purchasable for gold. For the other ones you'll need the unlock-items. @CaptainCheesy No, the guild warhorses are NOT converted into skin-unlock items.

Shotcaller Interview: Sucks

While the armies of Albion sharpen their weapons and refill their stocks in preparation for Season 6, we chatted with one of Blue Army's lead shotcallers about his approach to guild warfare. As a player since the early betas, Sucks (real name: Chris) has extensive experience in group PvP, and has played a big part in every winning guild's #1 place from season 1 to 5. Currently one of the lead shotcallers for Season 5 winners Blue Army, he also plays numerous other roles within the guild, which …

The drop chance is based on the mob's effective health, type (standard, veteran or elite) and "bossiness" (standard, mini boss or boss). It is further multiplied with the zone bonus (0.5 / 1.25 / 1.33 / 2.25 / 2.75 - Expedition/ Safe / Yellow / Red / Black) and premium (1.5).

Arena Que number

Hi Wadefu, we would like to give you more information on the state of the queue, but since we have far lower numbers compared to huge MMOs a queue position could often be misleading in regards to actual waiting times. For example you could be at the beginning of the list to find a match but if the queue simply doesn't have enough player in your elo range, it could take much longer than you would expect. And yes, the tolerance in terms of skill we match players with/against increases with time an…

Party Finder

Hi @Raithe, actually this HUD-element serves a very important purpose. If you are already in a party and looking for additional partymembers, only the leader of your party has access to the party finder functionality. Therefore, the element is where all other party members can select their roles and update their equipped gear. Also, we are aware that the party finder in its current form is not perfect and are planning changes for future updates. - Mo

I know that it doesn't feel good to see a smaller number after the update.

[Feedback Wanted!] New Hector Dungeons

Quote from Blodvaerd: “I have only played Undead and Keepers (tiers IV and V) but it would be nice if there was all factions available at each tier (IV - VIII) ” Hi @Blodvaerd ! Thank you for asking! We've decided to separate Factions by Tiers to create a sense of progression from tier to tier. Currently there're no plans to change that. But we're trying to bring more variety to the mobs inside the same tier to compensate that.

[Feedback Wanted!] New Hector Dungeons

Quote from Mathieu94P: “Quote from Foximmilian: “Thank you guys, again, for your time and feedback! We're really grateful for this. ” Hi @Foximmilian In view of the answers, many players would like more diversity in the dungeons. Knowing that many dungeon cards are already drawn (beta cards 1 & beta 2), do you plan to diversify the dungeons of third-party equivalent? Today all the T5, T6 or T7 dungeons are copied pasted from their pair and this lack of diversity. ” Hi @Mathieu94P We know the iss…

update on that bug: the fix that will deploy with patch 3 unfortunately won't fix all problems with the take-all button we keep on working on that.

Is it allowed to scan your internet trafic and pick up logs

Hey guys, first of all thank you for asking before actually doing anything. Our position is quite simple. As long as you just look and analyze we are ok with it. The moment you modify or manipulate something or somehow interfere with our services we will react (e.g. perma-ban, take legal action, whatever). As some of you have already pointed out, using WireShark or silimar tools to analyze network traffic is undetectable from our end and we therefore do not consider it an offense. The network pa…

Keyboard glitch after inviting someone

There is a known bug with the invitation ui (e.g. for guild/party). if you type a name and press "Enter" to submit your invitation (instead of clicking "OK") the keyboard gets disabled for people that have window animations disabled in the options. This will be fixed in an upcoming patch. A workaround for now is to click in the chat window, this re-enables the keyboard. I could not reproduce this error with pressing the "OK" button though.

Can't install on drive other than C:/

Right now you'll either need to make 4GB room on C: or configure your windows to put the temp folders on D: (you can google how to do this or let a friend help you). We are trying to find a better solution in the very near future.

REQEUST: Albion Launcher changes!

Well, this causes a bit of a discussion between me and Korn. We'll see what we can do about this. The solution will be something automatic such as using the install drive if the temp folder is full, so no fiddling with ini files.

REQEUST: Albion Launcher changes!

Apparently your temp folder is still on drive C. If you absolutely cannot free space on C, you need to change the temp folder locations. Do this at your own risk! My recommendation is to free space on C instead and leave your system settings intact. For the local temp folders, edit your system enviroment variables TMP and TEMP. See computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htm For the system temp folders see answers.microsoft.com/en-us/wi…e1-404c-aa27-a76c0b450818

Concerns about acount safety

If I may add one more thing: the way to go is of course two-factor-authentication, since you would have to break into two devices instead of just one. We already have a light version of that - if you log in from a new device, you will have to do an email verification. Account theft is way down since we have introduced this. The only people who still get their accounts stolen are those who use the same password for Albion and their email account (or the email account is otherwise compromised).

Concerns about acount safety

Hi HyunMi, you are not wrong, but there is no way for us to make this secure. If you are afraid of malicious software on your machine (and that is a completely valid concern), you should never save a password in any application. Not in Albion, not in your web browser, not anywhere else. Encryption does not help here, because the game needs to be able to decrypt and send the password on login, so the encryption key needs to be stored somewhere as well and can be stolen in the same way... As an ex…

Constant disconnects and lag

Hi, The bad news first: I cannot comment on individual disconnects. This does not seem be a general problem; we have multiple machines running Albion 24/7 and almost never see any disconnects. The likely reasons for disconnects are your internet provider (e.g. 24-hour-disconnect), your Wifi (lots of wireless networds in the building = unstable) etc. This may not be a very satifying answer, but - if you get a lot of disconnects, the problem is somewhere on "your" side, it's not our server.

Ultrawide Resolution Support? 3440x1440

Hi everyone, the problem with ultra-wide resolutions is that it gives you a broader field of view. In a competitive game like Albion Online this would give you an unfair advantage. It is essentially like a hardware-camera-hack and that is why we do not support it. The game server will BTW limit the objects you can actually see, so even if you get the game to work on 3 screens you will not actually see mobs or other players on the 2 additional screens. David

[Issue resolved] MAC & LINUX CLIENT WORKING AGAIN

Happy to report that the OSX version is finally online and working. (Linux version is still in the pipeline but will be available eventually.) We are very sorry for this problem. The root cause was that we were having trouble with one of our build servers, so the clients were delayed but we desperately wanted to publish an update and fix an important bug. We thought the OSX and Linux clients would only be delayed a little while... and then the build server died completely and we were unable to r…

What Book Are You Reading?

What Bercilak said. Especially the books by Abercrombie is something everyone should read, the stand alone books after the first law trilogy most of all. Currently listening to 'Tower Lord' book two in the Ravens shadow trilogy (Blood song), third book will be out really soon as well (7th of july). Once I finish that I will be off to read 'The Autumn Republic', by Brian McClellan.

is there pve?

The destiny board is something that allows you to grow as a character, it just is different progression system than Tibia. When I was younger I played a lot of Tibia and I still play it for a week every year due to nostalgia, the world has a bit of the same feel to it as you had when you first left Rook.

When you die the item u had in ur bag or something dissapears? What do you guys think? It must be a hard to find item though so not everyone has one.” There was such an item in Tibia which was a even more hardcore full loot pvp game and it completely destroyed all the fun in pvp.

@AbunA ok i got the impression you mean just letting the launcher download the game again after the "error waiting for xdelta tool" comes up. as i said, i had the error and it went away after a complete uninstall and new download of the webinstaller. but if u tried that already then just ignore what i said
