The Albion Online Wiki

  • The Albion Online Wiki

    Fellow citizens of the mysterious world of Albion Online,

    With this thread I want to set in motion a project to revitalize the efforts to update and maintain a proper wiki for our favorite game: Albion Online.

    I see a big opportunity to create something that is not just a wiki to look up basic information or descriptions of what things do, but potentially a great resource of information and history for the ever evolving world of Albion.

    With this thread, which will be a work in progress that will be updated and frequently edited along the way I hope to merge all discussion and suggestions regarding the Albion Wiki in one place. Check back regularly or subscribe to this thread by clicking the little red bookmark icon on the top right of the post to get notifications about the progress of this project. If you respond to this thread you will usually also be auto-subscribed.

    Hey guys!

    Good news! Going forward @Clementine will be taking over the Wiki Admin role and the Wiki Project.

    Within the next week and a half I will be handing over all the "keys", accounts and perms over to her. I'm not sure what will happen to this thread - maybe a new one will be made so you can go ahead and subscribe to the new one soon.

    As you might have noticed, I had spent little time doing Wiki things over the last month - mostly because I was busy with AlbionTV. So a change fits very well in this current situation to keep the momentum and push things even further with the Wiki :)

    I'm very glad Clemmie is in the position to take over the Wiki Project - with substantially more time to allocate to it than I ever had in the past!

    We've talked quite a bit so far and she has a lot of great ideas. You can definately look forward to seeing some great changes coming to the Wiki in the very near future!

    So long story short: from now on please talk to @Clementine for all things Wiki!

    :!: @Clementine is the new boss now :!: :D

    Current Status:
    • We have a public Trello Board now! Take a look at this if you want to see what we are currently working on.
    • We're looking for more contributors! Read this thread, especially the next few posts if you want to get involved!
    Any questions or suggestions? Please reply to this thread!

  • +1 for the initiative.

    Albion Online could definately use an updated resourse for many core mechanics, since they seem to change a lot over time. Having to read through several pages of patch notes after having had a 2 month break from the game is kind of horrible. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for new players to learn this game.

    Yes, thats the first thing I want to do. Just make a list of missing things so we can later tackle them one by one.

    I hope everyone will chime in and just brainstorm a bit what is missing. I will add your things to the list for potential articles.

  • The official guides section of the website has a lot of basic knowledge guides as well here:

    albiononline.com/en/guides/

    But it might be worth it to consolidate or cross-link those articles?



    I'm working on moving all of the guides over so everyone can help adding and improving them. But this takes a while. Edit: mostly complete

  • A wiki with everything in it is definitely needed.

    I had to ask somebody who had T8 bows the other day to equip one for me so I could see the visuals.

    I don't want to level something all the way to T8 just to realise I don't like the appearance of it but then I suppose we have no other choice.
    I just like having a laugh.
