Feature Release “Cador” / Version 1.0.277 – REV 45888

56f12c4412e0d_default_bigDirector’s Notes

With Cador we’re releasing a number of changes directed at improving the PVE experience in Albion- most prominently the addition of group loot and repair kits. We’ve also completed our work on the Heretic mob faction.

Cador also marks an important step in our plans for combat: The completed armor rework allows us to now turn our attention to adding more ability choices to existing weapons.

As part of the PVE improvements, Cador also changes mob lethality and the death mechanic. We are aware of concerns regarding the impact of extending this change to PVP, but there are several reasons why we want to test these changes in public to see how big their impact really is.

For one, killing another player will have a strong reputation impact in the upcoming reputation system- we really like that the new mechanic makes this a very conscious choice. Additionally, we believe that the changes add tactical depth and excitement to PvP encounters. We want to test these changes for at least two weeks before making a final decision.

Apprentice Members Needed!

Apprentice Positions Available

Apprentices are members of the guild that specialize in heading up specific tasks to help the guild progress. Examples include helping with our garden, sending out airships on retainer-like adventures, or decorating the house with seasonal charms!

Apprenticeship is easy, no stress, very low time commitment, but infinitely helps our leadership by freeing up their time to lead the guild by just that little bit more, while allowing you to do the things you already enjoy doing! Apprenticeship also can lead to officership for those that want to push our guild to the top of its game! See the following for a list of apprenticeships we are in immediate need!
