Saturday marks the beginning of Albion's thirteenth Guild Season, with numerous updates to open-world gameplay and an incredible new battle mount, the Phalanx Beetle, as a season reward. The recently released Season 13 Patch introduced new and updated open-world content including two new high-level enemies, increases to Fame and Season Points for killing open-world mobs, greatly increased resource and enchanted resource spawn rates, updated castle layouts and loot, and an adjusted Crystal League schedule.

Guilds that reach a high enough rank can claim fantastic rewards including an avatar, avatar ring, and the mighty Phalanx Beetle mount. This mount will be awarded to guilds who reach Silver Rank or higher during Season 13, with increasingly higher stats and epic appearance with each successive tier.
As always, the winning guild will receive a statue among the past Guild Season winners in Conquerors' Hall, and qualifying guilds will also receive a Fame Bonus and furniture items. For full Season Rewards details, see this article.
Season 13 doubles Fame earned for killing Siphoning Mages and open-world mobs, and introduces two new open-world enemies: the Treasure Drone and the Crystal Spider.
