Open World

From Albion Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In Albion Online, the term Open World refers to everything that is not accessible through gated entry, so-called "instanced" content.

All Zones, Territories, Open World Dungeons, Castles, Treasure Chests and other content would be considered open world - if you can interact or compete with other players in the proximity of the feature.

Zones

Clusters are divided into four types of zones in Albion as a way to easily show differences in PvP mechanics:

For more details on zones please refer to the specific page: Zones

Territories

A resource territory on the local map owned by a guild not in your alliance.

Territories are open-world claimable areas within clusters that provide an NPC and deadly watchtower guarded refuge for players in the owner's guild or alliance, as well as other cluster-wide benefits including additional resource enchantment rate and bonus gathering yield. The benefits and the defenses of the territory increase as the tower is upgraded through the crystal league system.

Territories are only claimable during seasons, and change hands regularly via Invasion Days throughout the season or anytime mid-season through open-world combat.

For more specific information on territories please refer to the specific page: Territories

Open World Dungeons

Open World Dungeons are designated locations on the map with a high density of mobs.

Castles

Castles are open-world structures which can be claimed by guilds. Because the rewards for owning a castle are season points, loot, and safe deposit for the owners, many guilds try to compete for the ownership of the castle and engage in ZvZ fights.

Treasure Sites, Lesser and Greater Outlands Treasure

A sealed treasure chest at the center of a Treasure Site in the Royal Continent.

There are three different types of treasure sites, the "Treasure Site" which spawns in the Royal Continent, and the "Greater Outlands Treasure" and "Lesser Outlands Treasure" which both spawn in the Outlands. All treasure sites are special areas in the open world within a cluster and marked on the world map, which feature a large central treasure chest which refills with items at designated times throughout the day (the time is visible by clicking on the marker on the World Map.) These locations serve as a reoccurring conflict driver as players fight to secure the area in order to loot the chest.

Warcamps / Siege Camp

War camps are places where players can store items safely. Only the specific player has access to the chest, like in a bank. They are local.

They are also one of the ways to start a Guild vs Guild fight, in order to conquer a territory. The timer at which it open to launch an attack, or to pacify, are written on the local map and correspond to the GvG timer. It requires the « Launch an attack » guild permission, and the guild need to have the silver in the guild bank account. After a (15s?) channel, the attack is launched.
