The second update for Albion Online: Into the Fray is here. Patch 2 implements plenty of combat balancing changes, some of which are aimed at improving those underperforming Magic Staff abilities.

Some Nature Staff abilities received buffs. For one, Thorns’ area damage against other players is increased to 25. Besides that, the growth time interval of the Rejuvenating Flower ability is reduced to just two seconds.

In addition, Grudge and Cursed Tar, active abilities found in cursed staves, got some noteworthy buffs. The damage output of Grudge has increased up to a total of 150 after two seconds, while the hit delay for Cursed Tar is reduced slightly to 0.35 seconds.

Patch 2 changes the time slots for Crystal League battles as well. All non-lethal 5v5 matches now run at the same time as lethal 5v5 matches. For 20v20, Level 1 and Level 2 matches will take place daily at 9 a.m, 9:30 a.m, 3 p.m, and 3:30 p.m EST. Additionally, Level 3 matches take place on Tuesdays and Fridays at 3 p.m and 3:30 p.m EST, and again on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9 a.m and 9:30 am EST.
