We are glad to know that the final update of Albion Online soon to be released on July 17th, previous update Galahad, and it brought a brand-new world layout. Hence, gamers have highly anticipated for the new update: Hector. The new update content is almost here, including outlands improvements, revamped hellgates as well as the black market. According to U4GM, let’s take a closer look at new content details.
The Outlands are also receiving several improvements. First of all, the current harbors and black zone cities are being removed from the game. Resource distributed is also being adjusted. Lastly, the watchtower territories are being boosted as well. Details improvements, you had better visit official website U4GM.
Hellgates are a vital part of Albion Online, mixing PvE with the thrill of PvP. While they have been well-received in general, there are some smaller issues that could not be addressed with so-called band-aid fixes. This is why we are giving the Hellgates a revamp!
This revamp includes not only a new, pentagram-shaped map, but also new mechanics and minibosses. We have also divided the Hellgates in three different difficulties: Ashen Hellgates (green zones), Ignited Hellgates (yellow zones), and Infernal Hellgates (red and black zones).
New Feature: Black Market
The Black Market merchant is a new NPC that can be found in Caerleon, the center city of the Royal Continent. This shady figure buys equipment from crafters and redistributes it to the mobs and chests of Albion, who in turn drop the equipment to players in Albion.
This new feature has several benefits. First of all it allows us to add cool drops to the PvE of Albion Online, without taking away from the player-driven economy. Additionally, as the Black Market merchant is shady, this can also be used as a proper item-sink for lower Tier items. Lastly, we can remove Essences from refining and get rid of refined resources as a drop from Hellgates and chests.
PSA: Evacuate To A Safe Place
As the harbors and black zone cities are being removed, so are their banks and cityplots. If you have any items stored in one of the following maps, please make sure to move them to a safe place before Hector goes live on June 7.
Finally, it’s worth mentioning that the Caerfyddin map in the Royal Continent will be replaced by the Keeper’s homebase. What this means is that its watchtower territory will be removed. On the top of that, for the guild that holding this territory, before Hector hits, and the guild has to evacuate, otherwise, they will be likely to lose their items.
