Studio Sandbox Interactive told more details about the global reworking of magic staves, which will happen in the Into the Hell update.
Against the background of combat gloves with spells and skills, staves in Albion Online began to feel like frankly outdated weapons. Considering that this branch is the largest group (six branches – fiery, sacred, woody, cursed, mystical and frosty) and makes up more than a third of the total number of weapons in the game, the need for drastic changes has become obvious.
The studio set out to take the gameplay of magical staves to a new level, so that the use of these weapons would bring pleasure to gamers. To achieve the goals, four key points of change were identified:
- Updating the visual – both graphic and special effects;
- Animation processing;
- Soundtrack update;
- Reworking existing and creating new skills.
