Oberon is coming! The sixth major post-release content update for Albion Online brings a major new Randomized Dungeon feature, new creatures and shrines, updated chests, a completely reworked tutorial, and much more.
With Oberon, Hidden Entrances will spawn randomly throughout the open world. These will not appear on maps, and must be discovered through exploration. Within these entrances are Randomized Dungeons: one-of-a-kind, procedurally generated lairs that offer a new gameplay experience each time, with the potential to contain rare bosses and valuable loot. Players can also use Dungeon Maps, a new item dropped by mobs, to show the locations of nearby dungeons.
Oberon brings a host of ferocious new foes, from ethereal wisps and devious Acolytes to the fiendish Keeper Witch. Roaming mobs throughout the open world now drop runes, souls, and relics, bringing new economic and crafting possibilities. Chests have been reworked with updated visuals, and are now sealed with a magical shield that can only be broken by killing nearby mobs. And new shrines can be found in Randomized Dungeons, offering brief but powerful whole-party buffs.
An all-new tutorial gives new players clearer guidance on the game's systems and combat. This will bring them more quickly into higher-level play, benefitting new and veteran players alike. The early-tier grind to unlock weapons, armor, and gathering gear has been reduced, encouraging players to experiment with new builds and playstyles. Oberon also brings long-requested improvements to crafting and transmutation times, plus reduced harvest times for creature resources. Additionally, players can now mute up to 150 others, limits have been placed on excessive whispers to reduce in-game spam, and the toolbars and ingame shop are clearer and easier to navigate.
