Over time, Siphoning Mages draw power from the land of Albion and convert that into Siphoned Energy for the guild that controls the territory. This siphoned energy can be converted into Runes, Souls, or Relics to craft powerful artifact weapons and armors.
The amount of Siphoned Energy harvested by a guilds Siphoning Mages earn Season Points, which are used to determine a guilds ranking in the GvG Season.
Siphoned Energy can be converted to Runes, Souls and Relics at the Artifact Foundry in any Royal City at the following rates:
|Artifact Component||Tier||Energy Required|
Siphoned Energy is used in a variety of different activities in the world of Albion:
