Unable to earn more challenge points/keys

Hey there, the keys just stop showing up over your character once you finish the daily challenge. You still contribute to the Guild Challenge, but keep in mind that the scoring isn't updated every minute. You can test this by checking your current scoring, doing any activity that rewards Keys and then check your scoring again after some time (~30 minutes).

[24. November 2021] Lands Awakened Update

- Setting "Home" in a Hideout and fast traveling via Travel Planner to a city, then using the Realmgate there, now leaves Home binding intact as intended NOTE: This fix was incorrectly communicated in the original patchnotes; the accurate description is as follows: - "Using the Realmgate after respawning in a city after dying will no longer reset your Home binding, if your Home is set to a Hideout in the Roads of Avalon." We apologize for any confusion this change has caused as listed.

Hey, this was an intended change It was also suppossed to appear on the changelog. But you are right, it was apperently not listed.

Hi @Vocandin, thanks a lot for your feedback. Quote from Vocandin: “Decent amount of slots (30 for personal, 60 for guild?) ” Guilds actually have 100 Loadout slots . Quote from Vocandin: “Cannot select different food / potion amounts unless done by inventory or starting a loadout from equipped items ” This is not in the current staging version, however we have already fixed it and it will be in very soon. You will be able to use the amount selection (1,10,Full Stack) AND be able to stack items …

[February 26th] Faction Warfare Playtest Challenge - Rewards Inside!

Hi everyone, its really hard to estimate how many people will be responding to playtests like this- we were far more successful than anticipated in mobilizing the Albion playerbase. Thank you for that! We've already collected lots of interesting technical data that helps us fix bugs before a release. We're also considering running another test once those issues have been adressed, and we'll be sure to boost up the test servers even further to allow for more players if we do.

Essentials Improvements for Hellgate to be perfect

With a lot of experiences in Hellgates / builds / comps, I feel that I have to express myself to bring considerable improvements to this content.

Are the 2v2s in its final state? I really hope not...

I like the way you are thinking, and we are thinking in the same-ish direction. Always keep in mind that these numbers are there to be tested for now on the test server. Basically what we are taking into consideration is the difference in the difficulty of creating a 5v5 or a 10v10 team compared to a 2v2 team. As it is quite a bit harder to create a 5v5 team and even harder to create a 10v10 team the incentive must give an edge to 5v5 and 10v10. Additionally, the skillsets are also hard to compa…

@Vocandin is perfectly right, all nonlethal Hellgates are T5 Lethal 2v2 Hellgates are T6 Lethal 5v5 Hellgates are T7 Lethal 10v10 Hellgates are T8 which means both the tier of the map and the tier of the mobs you can find in the Hellgate.

Hey there, - The distance is still a matter of balancing, we still would love to have players roam the open world before they go into a Hellgate chaining spree. The new Hellgate iteration should still cut down the time spent outside in the open world by quite a bit. - The Ip is going to be raised from 1000 to 1100 on Friday - And we are still collecting data, how much fame can actually be achieved in the Hellgate Hope that helps a bit Cheers, Dom

Sorry to disappoint you, but this is complete nonsense. None of these parameters exists in Albion Online. This will do nothing.

Zones with a higher level have a higher enchantment rate for resources (of Tier 6+) and their level is multiplied to any season points.

Fame API seems to have stalled again

Hi @cuatro, we have indeed some performance problems with player statistics. Rest assured no data is lost on that end. Only processing the data to be available via API is delayed. We are working on a solution for this so you can see current data as soon as possible. Besides of this data will generally be updated once per day.

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…

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.

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.

Season 4 Patch Brings Essential Guild Updates

Quote from Captainrussia: “can you take the skin part of it off? Or is it permanent once applied? ” Once an Armored Horse is crafted to a Warhorse - it becomes permanent. Quote from Raithe: “And the warhorse when looted shows the guild of whoever is wearing it I would assume? Just like a cape? ” Exactly - works the same way as capes.

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) ?
