Additions and Changes [Hector Update]The Black Market is a new merchant NPC in Caerleon, who buys items from crafters and redistributes them to the mobs and chests of Albion. The Black Market is unlike your typical NPC merchant - His demand for items is based on how many mobs are killed across the world. This new feature ensures cool drops in PvE, while not taking away from the player-driven economy.An Update to the Outlands includes the removal of the current cities in the black zones (which will have a higher amount of enchanted resources than the royal continent) and harbors. The connection between the royal continent and the Outlands will be ensured by a portal in Caerleon that links to the various parts of the Outlands. The higher Outlands areas will have better chances to find enchanted resources.Hellgates, offering the perfect mix between PvE and PvP in Albion Online, are getting a much-needed facelift. Now shaped like a pentagram with multiple entrances, players are able to access Hellgates with varying levels of difficulty: Ashen Hellgates (green zones), Ignited Hellgates (yellow zones), and Infernal Hellgates (red and black zones).New Mounts are being introduced for Undead, Morgana, and Keeper factions.The Tutorial has undergone significant improvements. The Royal Expeditionary Forces will give beginning players a basic mission line to follow, introducing them to the possibilities available in Albion.
