Ive played this game for 2 months premium and F2P. Before you invest time and or money into this game heres my tip. Dont bother even installing unless you have 5 or 6 friends to play with this game is EXTREMELY unfriendly and unfair to solo players. Sure you can join a guild but you get taxed out of ingame funds in exchange for virtually nothing, if your really really lucky maybe the guild will let you in on a dungeon rarely. As for progression farming for materials is repetitive as expected. But to get better gear you MUST travel into PVP zones and due to only having 1 ingame server and a ridiculously high population, 90% of the time you will farm or run a group dungeon for an hour or so then travel home but your 90% of the time going to be killed by 7-8 people along the way waiting for you to end your little life and take your hard earned loots. So now youve lost everything and wasted almost 2 hours to show up in your home city with nothing. A waste right? but this is the ONLY way to progress, unless you have 6 or 7 people to help you pvp or run dungeons or help each other farm. If not then you go back to farming in non pvp zones for minimal resources with the 100+ people in that zone doing what your doing, fighting for minimal resources. As for Dungeons looking for groups takes atleast 30 minutes then the dungeon which is 40 minutes(ish), if your in a non pvp zone dungeon loot is basically useless, in pvp zones dungeon loot is slightly better but your almost guaranteed to be killed IN the dungeon by a traitor in your group or another group, if you survive this then youll most likely be killed taking your loot home, another wasted hour with nothing gained but with very much lost. But this is MY solo experience yours MIGHT differ (not sure about that though). All in all i enjoyed this game UNTIL over population in pvp zones hindered my progress rendering Albion basically pointless. My recommendation if your a solo player thinking of giving Albion a try is save your money and your time invest it into Runescape 3 or something with basically the same mechanics, more servers, no over population or pvp only progression zones, youll accomplish muuch more in Runescape or elsewhere lol. I might give Albion another try if there were more servers but for now completely unplayable from a solo player stand point.
