About (Old - Feb 22, 2021)I started playing Albion online on Oct 2019 but soon discontinued and returned back to the game in Feb 2021. Got hooked because of the player driven economy and group and solo PVP vs PVE aspects, all of these providing real life-like experience.
Albion is also a challege for a very safe item hoarder gamer like me who'd never use minecraft potions because the 'right-time' to use them never came.
Albion tries to balance the risks and rewards fairly well. I've always been pretty scared for a long time to step out of blue zones.
I haven't explored the PVP and Guild aspect of it much. But I do plan to get there eventually. As recommended by good players, I've been trying to setup a stable income of money by testing out various activities including dungeons and fishing.
25th March UpdateI finally bought premium today for 8.9million silver.
For the past month I've ventured into yellow zones, red zones and finally Avalonian Roads (black zones). I've took part in the recent call to arms update faction warfare which is pretty fun and beginner friendly PVP.
Avalonian roads and red zone pvps are scary yet rewarding. The key to taking risks is being economically stable. I could easily earn 100-200k everytime I go dungeon(withour premium) in T6-7 red zones, which is basically how much my T5.1 greataxe build costs. I've also stashed about 5 sets of these builds just in case.
I've also moved to Bridgewatch faction due to their high rewards: 144-150%. Nioh98 happens to have his base there too.
6th April Update
Great Axe Build
Since I do a lot of solo dungeons, Greataxe is really good for AOE damage and high mobility due to the following spells
- - Rendering spin: Bleed stats and good physical damage to enemies from a distance
- - Adrenaline boost: Increased movement speed and damage.
- - Whirlwind: Bayblade, go!
Scholar cowl's Energy Shield spell increases resistance against physical damage and takes care of our mana regen.
'Bloodlust' spell on Mercenary Jacket takes care of the extra health regen we need to out sustain hard bosses. I usually swap out w/ Stalker Jacket for clearing dungeons faster.
Recently discovered Stalker shoes- amplifies damage. Swap out w/ Soldier boots to use 'Wanderlust' for movement speed.
Why is this build good?
- 1. Good damage
- 2. Very high mobility (w/ Soldier boots)
- 3. Overall balanced health and mana regen
- 4. Overtime damage via bleed stacks
- 5. Speedy dungeon clear w/ AOE spells
New players should look into various Food buffs and Minor Poison potions.
