Gold

From Albion Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Gold is a currency in Albion Online. Gold is introduced into the economy by purchasing from the Albion Online Shop or by trading Silver for Gold via the in-game Gold Market. The exchange rate varies depends on the current market price.

Once obtained, Gold may be traded for Silver and it cannot be lost or dropped. Neither Gold nor Silver is dropped when a player is knocked down or dies in the game.

Gold is used to purchase Premium account status and obtain Vanity items. When it is used for a Vanity item, the Gold is permanently removed from the player-driven economy.

Previous to the Free to Play release on April 10, 2019, Gold could also be earned by referring new players that purchased Founder Packs.

Premium Time

Albion Online's Premium Status is designed to act as a “soft subscription”. You can play Albion Online without having to pay for Premium. The core difference compared to most other games: you can actually acquire Premium Status with the in-game currency Silver. You can also obtain the Premium currency, Gold, by trading with other players without having to spend real money.

Apart from Premium Status, Albion Online does not sell any in-game advantages to players in exchange for payment.

Premium Time can be purchased with Gold at the following rates:

Time USD Cost Gold Price Gold per Day Discount
1 Month $9.95 2,500 83 0%
3 Months $8.95 6,000 67 20%
6 Months $7.95 11,000 61 27%
12 Months $6.95 19,000 53 37%

Note: "Discount" is calculated in comparison to 1 month (83 gold per day of premium time).

Premium Status is awarded on a per-character basis.
