Hey, reworking Q and W for Quarterstaff would heavily impact the playstyle of Quarter Staffs in other types of content.

Quote from Midgard: “How the hell do you get a forum perma-ban in just 2 posts ... asking about builds? ” Bots are getting very clever. They take reddit posts from a relevant subreddit (or a similar community site) and then repost them on the forum. After a certain amount of time has passed (so moderators no longer pay attention to the post), they go back to their post and edit it to include spam links.

We need a Fog of War System ASAP!!!

There already exists a "fog of war" system; your Albion Online client receives limited information from the server based on the distance around your character - which is the same for all clients, regardless of your screen size. As @SHARKY mentioned above, you can see the Nametag of the player off-screen, and having a wider aspect ratio won't help you spot the player faster.

Quote from GunGuyTZ: “Wow really great collection!!! Do you mind to add the avalonaian collection? ” Quote from The_Fox: “Hate to bump the thread but, any chance the Avalonian weapons will get added to this? ” I recently updated the Albion Armory, and Weaponry is next in line. I'm thinking of remaking the Weaponry entirely, with showing the player character holding the weapon. Would you prefer that, or do you like the way it is now (without the character)?

SBI, can we please talk about your unoffical API.

Hey everyone, Thanks for bringing up your concerns about the performance of the API. Considering that this API was always meant to be for internal use, and thus entirely undocumented, the sheer number of tools that were developed and serve community purposes is astounding. This widespread acceptance and distribution of tools latching onto that API is, at the moment, its downfall. The increase in player numbers, paired with the increase in numbers of tools, brought the infrastructure behind this …

Hey everyone, we did not consciously make any changes to dungeon loot.

Wardrobe & Today's Patch Changes

Hey folks, In the leadup to our latest update “Percival”, @H4n1baL announced the introduction of our Vanity & Customization feature. As I am now in charge of the feature, I thought I’d give you some information about what is coming next and explain today’s patch to you. Now that we have rolled out mount skins & character customization we want to expand on that system by adding a “Wardrobe” section to the Appearance UI. Here you will be able to select a visual appearance for your character’s equi…

Market Volume (chart/indicator)

Hey @Woohoodathird! A chart with volume measures is in the game already. You can open it via the little arrow in a market details window. AuBurnGG's proposal was only the addition of the actual average value for the volume. The chart's been there before that. forum.albiononline.com/index.p…9261f58e43f25c5dc2bee1489 - Lino

Please BEWARE this SCAM tactic

Hi @Ravenar, So do I understand you correctly that you would prefer to have "130 m" there instead of "130,000,000"? I would argue that this would make the situation worse, see example: 130,450,000 = 130 m 130,000,000 = 130 m The only way to actually read out the real amount would be via a tooltip, which I would clearly argue is worse. A player could put the correct amount in at first, then pull the same scam mentioned above and there wouldnt even be a change of the number displayed. What are you…

Percival Update - Gender Reassignment

Hey @HumbleHokage! Thanks for your feedback. As I've mentioned before, gender change is not off the table. It's just way more complicated to implement than a simple hair model change for example. This has nothing to do with transphobia. If we easily could, we would have already implemented it. It's possible that gender change is coming with the following content update, but I can't make promises. - Lino

For the other ones you'll need the unlock-items. @CaptainCheesy No, the guild warhorses are NOT converted into skin-unlock items.

The Percival Update Arrives July 10!

@Sixnations @Goldorack Please see my post here: Vanity & Customization It contains all the info that's necessary. The mounts will be converted into skin-unlock items that you can consume to permanently unlock the respective skin for your account. If you have 10 morgana mares, you'll get 10 skin-unlock items. You can use one to unlock the skin and sell the other 9 to other players. All skin-unlock items are tradable. - Lino

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.

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).

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...

have to download the game every day

@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

Username Bug

is it only wrong in the chat or in the guild member list as well? is it also wrong within the world (your name label) ?
