A new update from Albion Online gives players involved in the final beta to discover a completely new biome! The Albion Online Elaine update is adding the Highlands, which is a beautiful lush landscape with sprawling plateaus, streams and waterfalls and which includes half of the old Mountain areas. The Highlands is also home to the Keepers, an ancient race of giant humans.
Due to the addition of the Keepers faction, players will also be able to access Keeper Artifact Items. Along with the also new 21 Hell Artifact items, which are available for all item types and can be obtained from Demon bosses, this means that there are now 28 unique Artifact Items waiting for players to craft them.
The Albion Online Elaine update also adds various balance fixes and changes based on previous player feedback in order to improve and stabilize the game even further. According to the official post, “stuttering” has been greatly reduced for larger fights and performance has also increased for “crowded” situations, for instance in larger cities.
