Impossible to avoid gankers?

    • Im t8 gatherer on almost everything, my advice for you? dont gather in contested zones, you will profit more on selling t5/t6 than trying to gather t7-t8 for hours and its high chance for you being ganked, while gathering lower resources will provide you more money and lower chance of being ganked, good luck

      See I look at it the other way, I want the risk of the T7/T8 zones. I typically gather in full combat gear and try to play aggressive, obviously knowing when to fight and when to run. The old saying, you gotta risk it to get the biscuit applies. In general, players succumb to groupthink and end up settling for semi safe boring gameplay, when you could have risky exciting highly rewarding gameplay... Play it safe in RL, go hard in Albion lol.

      I always hear people talk about profit in AO, but what about the fun aspect of it? I’m willing to lose whatever if I had fun losing it.

      T8 Gatherer in all reporting in.


      Gatherers have it very very rough, I agree it's almost not worth gathering, which in turn is why the prices of resources have skyrocketed since F2P. So many people out there, and all it takes is 2 to ruin your day of gathering.
      This is not correct why it skyrocket.. when ever something is introduce the major high player price things up.. the 600k 580k 672k 7.2 item i bought for my core run went 1mill at f2p.. luckly after 3 weeks those price drop down.. and i know who bought all those gear to price them all up.... the price of gathering was a surge to go up once free to play happen... you know that all those new f2p would be like the release of the game, where they dont know anything about the game and will try to gather and master all craft.. demand will skyrocket and it will slow down once the population settles in.. im still wandering when are they going to take away the increase spawn which shouldn't last forever...

      before free to play on a safe zone the gathering for t5 hide and fiber was respectfully 200 silver [fiber 180]... with that alone i made 18mill in 4 days imgur.com/a/NCWyIL2 using the same method i did 1 year ago, forum.albiononline.com/index.p…ate%2Bdireboar#post695710 which still works till today even after they slap the yellow zone to reduce to red zone [slowtree and snapch and other yellow zones]...

      during the worst lag in the game i made 4.4mill and t5 gathering. on an alt with 0 premium for 3 days bit.ly/2LDrivC .. the alt name is servantfarmer and after seeing how much grievers we have in yellow zone [player who like ot down you for the enjoy of it, because rep is nothing [you can farm those right back up]]... i switch to escape build, and didnt die once in red and black... however, i farmed on my main for 1h just to see how much i can make, and that while watching saitaman on the left screen which does slow me down a bit. bit.ly/2JhjgHb 1h=1mill on t5 yellow safe zone.. [let me clarify something im t8 tool so i farm fast but im druid, so i have to auto attack with my chest to kill, it'snt like i can auto attack with a longbow and then use raining arrow as i used to 2years ago i.imgur.com/q5CEctv.jpg.. i may kill a bit slower but i still farm fast]....

      if the price still stood at 200silver like it was before free to play or when i crashed the market with my factory 1 year ago [because there wasn't one person with 800kgold to buy everything from me] than i would say it would be worthless to gather, bit.ly/2JpONWi


      Right now what we see is that player are getting ganked in yellow zone for funs and for pratice... as for red zone player are in the beginning of the zone trying to gank player as they go back home so that they can still all that hard earned money..... two vids to show this. bit.ly/2YC1ymX couple of second of this and bit.ly/2L0YSfq this... they stop at the entrance of the zone and if you are in a ox i promise you will get downed. and if you are overburden [which the rule of albion is red zone and black zone only carry what you can run [up to 99%]] you will just stand there and take it.....

      I didnt die on an alt with 0 premium. It's now up to the player to keep figuring out how to dodge these type of ganker. and they are getting smarter and smarter.. each one are starting to bring purge bit.ly/2YznqiM which is a smart thing and a good thing, because we starting to see smarter ganking instead of dumb ganking.

      this thread is still kinda making me giggle. cause we are trying to help player get good at escaping, but in post number 10.. we have reddit player trying to get good at ganking XD...... plus 1... minus 1 =0 XD

      anyway continue. im enjoy the read
