      Hey!

      my toon is Goth Chick... and so far have been focusing on the light crossbow w/ heavy helm & boots and a cleric robe...

      I am a 39 yr old IT pro, spend my free time writing novels, artwork of all kinds (typically very detailed ink drawings), making music (over 100+ songs made) and lately I've been making music with birds

      I have played many FFA PVP (even full loot) games such as Darkfall, Age of Conan, Conan Exiles, Guild Wars, Vanguard, Everquest (I & II),... delved into everything just a little bit but much nearly as much. I am brand new (someone could catch up in under a week probably...) and it would be nice to find a busy guild as the one that I recently joined does not seem to ever have anyone online, even in the alliance... /sigh

      Please check out my stream! I typically keep it running when the server goes down to watch simpsons or watch vids about the game, etc.

      I just ganked my first victim ever yesterday (looted over 1 mil of gear from him! woot!)

      Sure would love any pointers you have to give OR COULD REALLY USE ANY DONATION YOU COULD GIVE!! haha (I currently have 5k silver the last that I had checked... but I do have some things for sell although not much... its been a pain having enough to repair my gear and keep my food/pots stacked).

      Check out some of my playlists on my youtube channel for many various games (mostly online PVP or retro like NES or genesis) and don't forget to sub/like/etc. I will be adding a playlist for Albion vids fairly soon if I have not already...

      My first impressions:

      - The arena should have a bigger reward... and sometimes I do not get ANYTHING for winning which is weird?

      - I think the loot dropped should be 5-10 times more regarding the amount of silver taken from another player in the yellow zone... for someone just starting it would be nice to have more of a reward in an area where competing is more possible.

      - I've found that some of the items are pretty much worthless and could use some tweaking...

      - Its a bit difficult to scroll down/etc. while looking at the buy orders to see end-game gear... if there were arrows or something that would help.

      - The tier 1 harvested crap found EVERYWHERE and done on accident a lot of the time could be more useful than it is now somehow?

      - the downtime when killed in a yellow-zone is a bit excessive...

      - trade route quests would be fun! or bounty hunter type thing... (of course many others probably have suggested this already)

      - I find the blackzone areas totally confusing regarding what is friendly and what is not... also no way to tell where a "safe zone" is or whatever so not knowing anything really is a risk but part of the excitement...

      All in all this is a great game and definitely the best free-to-play one out there! I am very excited to find out more what the game has to offer!!

      Add me as a friend and give me some stuff to help me get started? : P

      Thanks

      :P ^^ :cursing: 8| :love: :saint: :evil:
    • Welcome to the Forums @covertAHhps!

      Congratulations on your first PK.


      To answer some of your questions:

      - The Arena is a great area to practice pvp because you don't lose your gear. The rewards are ok because you risk very little in a match. Albion Online is all about risks vs rewards. The higher the risks, the higher the rewards.

      - The silver drop from downing players in Yellow zones is intentionally low, since it's also a safe area to practice PVP. The silver drop from players is system generated and it's roughly 10% of the total cost to repair the player's equipped gear.

      - All items have their use, like Rough stones and logs.

      - Yellow zone knockdown is not really that excessive. But feel free to post your suggestions in this section: Feedback & Suggestions

      - There are trade routes connecting all the cities and you're right, bounties have also been suggested before.

      - Zone rules are also found in the Albion Online wiki: wiki.albiononline.com/wiki/Types_of_Zones



      Best of luck and stay safe in your travels!
