With 11 days left until the Closed Beta launch of the upcoming cross-platform sandbox MMORPG Albion Online, developers Sandbox Interactive announced another exciting system update. Good news for potion-brewers, farmers and cooks – the consumables and potions systems received an overhaul bringing more variety into the whole food making and alchemy processes.
With Albion’s highly player-driven economy, food and potions play a remarkably important role in sustaining player’s territories, crafting stations and enhancing various character’s skills. When consuming certain meals, characters gain buffs for a certain period of time such as health regeneration outside of combat, increased crafting speed, and bonus combat damage. Potions, on the other hand, give a character instant but stronger benefits like a short heal over time effect, short energy boost, strong increase in defense values and others.
For the alchemy masters, life becomes easier as Albion provides an all-new herb garden where players will be able to grow their own herbs, which afterwards can be brewed into one of seven different helpful potions.
For more information on the overhaul of Consumables and Potions systems read the developer blog post here.
Players can participate in Albion Online’s Closed Beta by becoming a Founder.
