  • Quote from Diazar: “Dude even in real life you group to do stuff you cannot do alone. It's wrong to ask for same rights as a group, i do agree on a fame or might booster for loners tho, that is actually a good idea in the rest of nonsense banter. Mists might lessen the big alliance thing but they will be cheesed by rich guys in 8.3 (later 8.4 builds) being able to one shot every newer entry so don't think it will be that of a blast for new players too. Fact is. You shouldn't have advantage for b…

  • Are there still any plans to make changes to gathering gear? I believe it was said at one point SBI was looking at making the gathering yield bonus IP dependent rather than tier dependent. This is important for a few reasons: 1. It makes enchanted/higher quality gathering gear actually useful (with the current exceptions IE Skinner Garb) if we want to go more beefy. 2. It will let gatherers tailor their yield in a risk/reward specific way, just like how players can with combat gear. We already h…

    Quote from ZfreedZ: “I was excited for this update until now... Now I'm just worried. Most of the content I do is in a small 2-3 man group. We typically will roam the blackzone, but when it's just too busy with large ZvZ and gank squads, we usually go to the roads for content. While I was hoping this update was going to make it more than just a place to go when the blackzone is crowded... It appears it is no longer going to be possible with small 2-3 man groups. So, if the blackzone is ruled by …

  • You might consider stocking up on items ahead of time with buy orders to get cheaper prices and/or buy them in cities where the crafting bonus for that item type is and then transport back to your city. Maybe if prices are really high in some cities you can make some silver relisting and make some profit along the way. Being able to quickly buy loadouts is a great feature, but you have to realize it's an automated shortcut. Take a little more initiative and ownership and your personal economy wi…

  • To a certain extent, yes, it does. But definitely less of the dungeon variety and more along the lines of: 1) Small open world chests being unmarked on map, to reward roaming/exploring. (Medium & Large being unchanged) 2) More content broadly resembling faction transport missions. Like "deliver X materials, items, etc. to Arthur's Rest" or a scouting missions "Survey 5 (system chosen) Hideouts/Natural Formations" leading players around the BZ on a scavenger hunt. Quest-like but more acting as gu…

    Quote from grul: “Quote from Trial_hard: “Quote from Obelis: “Quote from YeSer: “no mount in mist., you can check the video..the botom of mount A is disabled. ” The gameplay in the Mists is intended to mirror the open world (only much smaller in scale), so mounts are indeed allowed. ” then the reset meta will be - have super long run on boots + mobility and jump on mount..

    Quote from Obelis: “Quote from Druhran: “@Obelis - Any chance you're able to give any hints on the current plans for crafting in the City in the Mists? Or might we be looking at a "transport only" city? ” Not yet. It's not finalized, but there are a few specialties on the short list that look appealing. ” Haha, what I figured. Thanks for the response and looking forward to hearing more in the dev talks!

    Anonymity probably isn't necessary. Something as simple as disabling guild/alliance display and the associated "friendly" status might be enough. If you stumble upon your friend or guildmate who's name you recognize? Seems fine. But any inherent political status should be disabled in the Mists. It's like you're in a dream world and only those faces you know mean anything. @Obelis - Any chance you're able to give any hints on the current plans for crafting in the City in the Mists? Or might we be…

  • It's unrealistic as a solo player to expect as much/as profitable content as groups. That said, it is incredibly frustrating to see group sizes continually increasing for trivial content, further reducing the chances of solo players 1vX or even simply escaping. It's caused by an arms race of group N+1 beating group N = they bring N+2 next time and this cycle continues, unfortunately leaving solo players as collateral damage. No issues with these groups having more opportunities and profits, but …

    Looks exciting! I hope there will be T8 system-owned crafting stations, without any special bonuses, located in the Mist city for players who want to live there. This would be amazing for those who want to avoid the large alliances, zerg gank groups, cartel controlled crafting station pricing, etc. It could be an ideal place for solo players who wish to avoid the larger politics of Albion and have our own niche in the game world.

  • Quote from ThreeHades: “Quote from noxmortus: “Quote from Asheraxia: “I hear a lot of moaning about a minor tweak to market taxation to balance out the escalating hyperinflation... seems absolutely reasonable to me. What I haven't heard much about is the brilliant way that the most toxic behavior in this game was dealt with, groups of 4.1 'Gate Campers'! In one fell swoop Gate camping became a thing of the past.... Thank God! it was the most annoying and seriously toxic behavior that simply coul…

    I don't think Spears are *that* far out of line. Rework the passives and slightly lowering the cooldown of the E abilities would be more than enough.

  • Quote from YeSer: “and why the tax cant be 10% , where is the problem? Theres change anything in the game puting it to 20%? Theres nothing change those guys that stay in market and only their game play is doing buy and sell orders earn less silver but its just 2% more of tax. Put sell order with head and u will pay less tax , its more entertaining for being a trader. Just change in ur benefits formula the tax % and keep working. and if u cant pay the tax sell them in the tradel channels ” The bi…

  • Really not a fan of the market tax increase. Not that it's necessarily a bad thing (I agree with the silver saturation problem) however it's just another unfortunate step punishing players who don't want to be a part of larger guild/alliance power structures in the game, sit on Discord all day, etc. Between hideout crafting bonuses, Caerleon/Rest transport escorts, Discord arranged/guild tax-free sales, the increase in zerg ganking groups over time, etc. it's getting pretty obnoxious to deal wit…

  • What makes you like Albion?

    Primarily the overall economic/high level systems design: - MOBA combat > "standard" MMO combat - How the item tiers/quality/enchants crafting is setup. - The best market in any MMO I've played (any game without buy orders = no thanks) + black market. - Each city having a unique economy and crafting/refining bonuses. - Gathering is fun to chill out to. - The great economic impact of ganks/item trashing. My only major gripe with Albion is the prevalence of Xv1 content and just how much groups gan…

    I agree the mail system could use some added functionality. Sending silver would be nice, so would being able to filter market notification mails (buy, sell, sort by value, etc.) Sending items/silver on delivery would have way too much potential for abuse, however. Moving items between cities, rests, and hideouts would break the distinct economies each location is supposed to have without the transport (*especially* for rests/hideouts) where risky transport through the BZ makes items intentional…

  • A lot of it comes down to the black market in Caerleon. Aside from tomes/silver bags/similar items, everything comes from players selling items to the black market. Go use the black market, or assist the blue police in the red zones with transports/removing PKers, etc.

  • Three UI tweaks: 1) Keep minimap zoom level saved between play sessions. 2) Keep expanded market view open/closed state saved between play sessions. 3) Add buy/sell order completion filtering to the mail UI. IE: I'd like to quickly delete all buy order fill notifications as those are more easily reviewed at the market where the purchased items are waiting. Sell order mails, for me at least, are a more useful tool to track what's no longer there. (IE need to craft/buy/enchant/transport more of th…
