about

On this page you will find a collection of frequently asked questions by new players.

The idea is to collect a bunch of questions from the 'albion-questions' channel on Discord, from the Beginner's Questions Forum or any other source and answer them here.

This is a work in progress. Any help is appreciated.

If you have a different opinion on how a question or answer should be phrased - either change it if it is clearly wrong or put it up for discussion on the Discussion page.

(editors note: Please try to limit the scope of the questions to new players who just started playing Albion Online. Depending on how many questions we can collect, we will just expand this page to a general FAQ. But for now the focus is on new players.)

a word of caution

The answers to these questions are likely partially subjective and various opinions on how to answer each question will exist, based on how different players like to approach Albion.

So take these questions and answers with a grain of salt.

Q: How do I use this list?

A: Press ctrl+F or the search function and see if its been aswered ;)

Q: What kind of official websites and channels exist?

A: Below you find a partial list of some of the official Albion Online channels and resources.

Q: Is it worth crafting in the city or should I crate my own crafting station on my island ?

A: You can find below many reasons why it's best to craft in the cities.

  • In the cities, there is a big ressource return rate (15%) when you craft. Meanwhile on an island the ressource return rate is 0%. (This 15% return rate is in the five major royal cities and in the black zone town plots).

Generally, it isn't worth to craft on your own island, but if the tax on the building is higher than what the 15% would give you back it's maybe worth to create your own station but this is very unlikely.

e.g : you are crafting a hood (8 leather) you will get 1 leather in return in a city. Let's say that this leather is worth X silver. If the taxe is higher than X silver it isn't worth to craft in this station.

  • Some cities are specialised in some kind of crafting (e.g : Frost staff in Martlock / Cloth in Lymhurst / etc.) making the return rate even higher. You can't find this kind of bonuses on personnal islands.
  • If you use focus when crafting in a city you can get up to 48% return rate. On your island it's only 35%. One more reason to craft in the cities.
  • Creating your own crafting station isn't worth : you have to put food in the buildings, you have to buy or gather the stone. It's very expensive.

This is why you should always craft in the cities.
