Albion Online‘s upcoming Midseason update will bring major changes to player experience on May 2, 2018. The PvP focused MMO will now allow players to trade skill masteries between different skill paths and re-spec their combat frames. A GvG Training System will also be added that allow players to practice Guild battles with zero costs and zero risks. Balances to GvG have also been added in light of the new training feature.
Keep in mind that it is possible to unlock one’s entire skill tree and that many new combat changes will be implemented in this update too before you convert all of your combat fame into re-spec points.
This patch will bring numerous combat balancing changes to keep combat in Albion vital and fair. This time around, the focus is on buffing various underused base- and lower-level Artifact Weapons. This should bring some weapons that have been underrepresented lately back into the spotlight. Another change will be increasing the mobility of Battle Mounts in order to make them more attractive in bigger battles again.
