Call to Arms Patch 7, AKA the Season 13 Patch, is now live! This patch brings big changes and improvements to competitive open-world gameplay in Albion. As Albion's next major content update will be focused on improving the overall open-world experience (more about that soon!), we've decided to bring some of those changes to the game already, in anticipation of the start of Guild Season 13 this Saturday.

New Mobs: Crystal Spider and Treasure Drone

The Crystal Spider is a new rare boss that randomly spawns throughout the Outlands, intended for groups of 3-5 players. In addition to Fame, killing a Crystal Spider grants up to 30 Season Points. Treasure Drones are rare mobs that transport Avalonian Chests through the open world, and are defeatable by solo adventurers. They have similar rarity levels to dungeon chests, with higher-tier drones dropping increasingly valuable Avalonian loot.

Other mob changes include world boss spawn times being doubled to two hours, as well as double Season Points for killing world bosses and double Fame for all open-world faction mobs and Siphoning Mages.

Resource and Transmutation Changes

The spawn rate of enchanted resources has increased, with rare resources doubled and exceptional resources quadrupled. Resource transmutation prices have overall been increased, as has the respawn rate of all T5+ resources in the open world. At the same time, transmutation prices for Runes, Souls, and Relics have been significantly reduced to make high-level Artifacts cheaper to craft and more accessible.

Additional Changes

  • Castle layouts adjusted; Castle Outpost chest loot doubled
  • 20v20 Crystal League schedule adjusted
  • Disarray (Zerg debuff) curve adjusted to be much steeper
  • Shield bubbles from instances shortened
  • Corpses can no longer be looted while Hellgate PvP is active
  • Four new Avatar Rings added to Vanity Merchant
  • Combat Balance adjustments
  • ...and much more
