Feedback from A Post about Albion Online CB2 Beta

Grinding games to accumulate enough IP to complete a single rune-page wouldn’t be looked at with such disdain if you didn’t consider that Summoners also need to unlock new champions.

Responding to a thread on the official forums, lead champion designer Riot Meddler confirmed that there are major changes coming to runes sometime next year.
