With the Wild Blood update set for October 16th, the Albion Online team has shared new details about the updates to islands and the farming rework on the way.

The updates to personal islands  mean that you can have your own individual islands with custom appearances, Visual upgrades, and indeed,  different available biomes.   instead of just a uniform appearance for having a personal island, they'll be a little more personality to them. the different biomes that will become available when the update hits are tailored to link the personal Islands thematically to cities. 

What this will look like is a shared relationship between the host city and your island, linking them thematically, providing choices, and a way to have your secluded personal space that feels like it belongs in the immediate world. 

Those new biomes will be as follows:

Martlock: Expect rolling hills, meadows, cliffs, and picturesque waterfalls.

Lymhurst: Dive into a thick, lush forest with a serene stream meandering through it.

Bridgewatch: Enjoy an oasis-like island with warm, shallow waters and swaying palm trees.

Fort Sterling: Embrace the tranquility of snow-capped mountains.

Thetford: Explore sunken ruins, overgrown trees, and emerald waters.

Caerleon: Brace yourself for rough, rocky terrain in this bandit-controlled territory.

When it comes to farming, the new farming Buy Albion Online Silver bonuses for both crops and animals that also connect to the island overhauls. Crops, herbs, and farm animals will all thrive differently in different biomes. Each city biome will have bonuses for one crop, one herb, and one farm animal, as well as one additional farmable item with bonus yields. Different animals will yield more resources when butchered on particular islands too.

Since all of these changes are coming in the update, the team has opened the ability to move your island to a new city before October 16th. This will be the last personal island move, since these upcoming changes mean you'll be able to own multiple personal islands going forward: one for each city.

See the new devblog at Albion Online, and watch the Albion Online Gold update video for a breakdown of details.

Albion Online’s Robin Henkys is back for Buy Albion Online Silver one final developer video before Wild Blood’s launch next week. This time, it’s all about the update’s marquee feature – shapeshifter weapons.

As the name suggests, shapeshifter weapons will grant players the ability to transform into various forms on the fly. They’ll come in the form of seven staves, each with its own respective forms and unique abilities that can inflict damage, support allies, or disrupt enemies. Using human-form abilities will build up Shift Charges which are used to power shape-form abilities.

These are the different Shapes into which you can transform:

Shadow Panther: turns invisible when no enemies are nearby.

Sylvian: increases allies’ health, provides healing, and can create a shield for your allies.

Spirit Bear: an aggressive tank that disrupts enemies.

Werewolf: Heals itself and gains a speed boost from attacking enemies

Hellfire Imp: Has very high damage but low defense; can revive in human form after death.

Runestone Golem: a huge tank which is immune to all forced movement

Dawnbird: deals very high damage from a safe distance.

Much like the existing weapon lines, players will be able to level up their shapeshifter weapons by earning combat fame from killing monsters, completing dungeons, participating in PvP battles, or any other combat-related activity.

However, obtaining a shapeshifter weapon is no easy feat. The new weapon line ties in with Wild Blood’s upcoming tracking system which will reward you with the materials needed to craft your chosen stave. More on that and shapeshifter weapons in general in the new developer video below.

Wild Blood will be hitting the live Albion Online Gold servers on October 16th.

In the final chapters of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, players can get their hands on the iconic Legendary weapon Shadowmourne. But you’ll have to prove you’re worthy of wielding Shadowmourne by completing an epic quest chain and obtaining the necessary reagents, including Shadowfrost Shards. 

Shadowfrost Shards are unique reagents needed to Buy WoW Classic Gold craft Shadowmourne, and there’s no way to circle around getting the iconic weapon without them. But, unlike other reagents on your list, this one will be slightly more demanding and time-consuming.

So, here’s how you can get Shadowfrost Shards in WoTLK Classic.

Shadowfrost Shards in WoTLK Classic come from only one source—Icecrown Citadel bosses—on both Normal and Heroic difficulty. There are no special requirements your raid group needs to meet like in the past when at least one player had to have The Splintered Throne quest.

It’s important to note that not all bosses have a guaranteed chance to drop Shadowfrost Shards, but end bosses of each wing (Saurfang, Lana’thel, Putricide, Sindragosa, and The Lich King) will always drop one Shadowfrost Shard on both 25-man Normal and Heroic difficulties. 

Shadowfrost Shards are binds-when-picked-up items, meaning you can’t trade them to other players, and if you get one or two of those, I guess you’re crafting Shadowmourne!

How many Shadowfrost Shards do you need in WoW WoTLK Classic?

In total, you need 50 Shadowfrost Shards to complete The Splintered Throne quests. Given the fact that there are 12 bosses and five of them will surely drop one shard, getting them shouldn’t take that long—especially if your guild is funneling you.

When will you need Shadowfrost Shards in WoW WoTLK Classic?

You need Shadowfrost Shards at the very Wotlk Classic Gold end of the Shadowmourne quest chain, but since Blizzard removed the requirement, you can start collecting them from the moment you first step into the frozen domain of the Lich King.
