Alganon January Newsletter

Greetings from the QOL dev team.

We have fantastic news, my friends: the wait is almost over!  We are proud to announce that the launch date for the Rise of the Ourobani expansion will be January 28th (next week!)  It's been a long but productive road, and we are very excited to bring this expansion to our players.  While we will be opening the information floodgates next week, we wanted to take this opportunity to share some tasty tidbits on a special promo special for the expansion, the new Warden class and a few more details on the Ourobani race.

Early Adopter Expansion Bundle 

For the first two weeks after the launch of Rise of the Ourobani we will be running a special "Early Adopter" sale on the Expansion Pack Bundle. Players who purchase this bundle will receive the following:

- Unlock the brand new Ourobani race
- Unlock the new Warden class for all 3 races
- Receive portal access to the brand new continent of Aeon for non-Ourobani players
- A Flying Conqueror's Pegasus Mount (Early Adopter bonus - the standard pack contains a different mount)
- A 1 Week Study Boon (Early Adopter exclusive! A fantastic deal!)

The Early Adopter Expansion Bundle will be available in the Tribute Market on launch day for only 3,370 Tribute. Get yours before the sale ends!!


New Playable Class - The Warden

The Warden is a ranged/melee damage oriented class featuring a varied kit of actions and a companion to help control his/her fight. Should things prove too difficult for the Warden alone, he/she can form a telepathic bond with an animal to gain the assistance of a permanent companion.

Naturalist actions and abilities focus on the Warden's shapeshifting and melee capabilities. While in tiger form, the Warden gains increased Attack Power at the cost of Resistances. To help the Warden control the pace of a fight, he/she can shift into lynx form to quickly sprint out of harm's way or stealthily attack unaware foes. The damage potential of this form is quite high, but players must be aware of the fight to prevent unforeseen deaths.

Wardens who focus on Animalist actions and abilities increase the potential of their companion as well as controlling combat through traps. The combined damage of the Warden and companion is a ferocious combination, but the ability to disable an enemy with traps and roots while fighting makes an Animalist Warden an elusive and dangerous target.

The abilities of an Ethologist Warden increase the combat abilities of those who wish to focus on fighting at a distance or in close combat with their own weapons. High-damaging ranged attacks, increased defenses and vicious melee actions make the Ethologist Warden a danger at any range. Should the Warden decide that a bit of assistance isn't such a bad idea, he/she can summon a pack of vipers, roks or panthers for a short time for added damage and safety in numbers.


New Race - The Ourobani

The Ourobani and Their Allegiance

The Ourobani will have allies, but they are most assuredly out for their own advancement. To help ensure that neither the Kujix nor Asharr become too powerful and deter the Ourobani uprising, this new race will ally themselves with the weaker of the currently warring factions. While allied, the Ourobani will be able to complete quests, interact with NPCs, communicate and conduct business with their allies as if they were of the same race. This holds true for the Ourobani's allies as well, giving them access to the city of Axelion and all that Aeon offers. The Ourobani will be able to fight side-by-side with their allies in PVP as well, up until the point where their allies prove a bit too capable.

After killing the opposing faction's ruler, the Ourobani will change allegiance to the faction whose ruler was defeated. The same rules of allegiance will apply to the new allies' faction. While allowing the Ourobani to complete quests and join groups of both factions at varied times might seem a bit unfair, it does include a risk. If Ourobani players do not pay attention to the war around them, they may end up getting caught in enemy territory without an easy escape route. A player may suddenly be cut off in the middle of their objective as well should the enemy faction's leader fall at an untimely point in their questing. This sense of risk-and-reward should make for a tactical and always entertaining situation for the Ourobani, Kujix and Asharr. While the goals of an Ourobani player may shift with little notice, a little foresight and awareness should prevent any catastrophic situations for the chosen of Ouroban.

Additions and Changes to the World of Alganon

Flying Mounts and Flight Paths

Players who have been following our announcements over the past few months no doubt know that flying mounts will be included in the Rise of the Ourobani, but there are some other additions and changes to be mentioned. With the Ourobani attempting to rise up to become the superior faction of Alganon, they have greatly restricted the use of portals across the land. The only portals left available reside in Nazrun, Westshallow and Axelion. These can be used to travel to the other continents, allowing access to all current content across the three Races.

The removal of the portals in other areas have forced the Humans, Talrok and Ourobani to use tamed flying creatures for travel. Flight paths can be accessed by talking with Flight Master NPCs and paying a fee to traverse the lands along predefined courses. Higher level players wishing to travel the skies at their own will can purchase flying mounts for their personal use.


Players who wish to easily recruit assistance during their quests can purchase a companion contract. These contracts allow players to summon a mercenary to help in combat. The Guardsman will help players who need a little protection during combat. The Pikeman offers close-ranged damage and a bit of distraction for players. The Arcane Scholar can deal damage to opponents from a distance.


Additional Expansion Pack Screen Shots

Very soon the world of Alganon will be expanding and with it will come major change. As the Ourobani stake their claim to the continent of Aeon, the Asharr and Kujix have a new threat to contend with. Will they be friend or foe? Only time will tell, the gods themselves cannot say.

Alganon: Rise of the Ourobani will have these features and more!

  • A brand new playable race, the Ourobani
  • A new, unique leveling experience in the new continent of Aeon
  • A new combat companion class playable by all races... The Warden
  • Flying mounts in Alganon: See the lands as never before as you ride your mount through the skies!
  • New quests, items and rewards!

 Alganon: Rise of the Ourobani coming soon!
