albion online introduces the guardians in linux mac windows games

Since the launch of Sandbox’ #MMORPG Albion Online is only a few weeks away. The release will be available for Linux, Mac and #Windows. Hence developer Sandbox Interactive are preparing the #games launch on July 17. Fixing bugs and planning the first expansions to be added in the future. Yet at the same time though, they want to introduce some of the games features. Which is the so-called “Guardians of Albion”. These are powerful bosses which require precise planning. While also taking utmost concentration and tactical skills from the players.

So the Guardians are the true protectors of Albion. While all brought to life by ancient magic and having grown bigger. As well as stronger over the centuries, they now protect the world’s natural treasures. So there are five different Guardians in Albion. Each possesses incredible strength and special skills. Once killed, they turn into a resource node. Providing the player with a whopping 2,560 tier-6 resources. Hence, a raid against these giants might well be worth it.

The Guardians of Albion Online at a glance:

Old White (Hide)

Old White is a massive white mammoth that is spiritually connected to all mammoths in the world of Albion, which have lived in the past and will live in the future. It can be found in tier-6 Hide Dens. While in general considered the easiest Guardian, the players first have to fight their way through several groups of hide mobs until they can face him.

Ancient Ent (Wood)

The Ancient Ent is a massive tree spirit and can be found in tier-6 Tree Groves. With its devastating Piercing Roots, team coordination is key when fighting him.
