|Version 19.010.1||13 December 2021||Lands Awakened Patch 1||Since War Gloves are an entirely new line that offers a lot of utility, outplay potential and combo setup, we wanted to make sure they don’t dominate the meta at launch and made sure that the kit has enough drawbacks. However it seems we were a bit overcautious, and while they seemed in a good place in test cases, they somewhat underperformed in various areas in the Albion live world. The following improvements have thus been implemented in Patch 1 to get War Gloves in a better place.
|Version 19.000.1||24 November 2021||Lands Awakened Update||War Gloves are an entirely new weapon line featuring three new base weapons, four artifact weapons, and fifteen new abilities, plus unique passives. They are melee-focused and offer damage, mobility, and control abilities along with limited ranged abilities. They are crafted in the Warrior's Forge and feature their own Combat and Crafting masteries on the Destiny Board.
