The Player Island is one of two types of player-made islands, the other being a Guild Island
PvP is not enabled on a Player Island
A player may only have one player island per character
Travel to the player island is free as long as the player is in the same city the island is located in
Player islands may be purchased from the island merchant in any of the main cities
To purchase an island, a player must have at least 30 days' Premium time. Premium may be purchased with in-game currency or via the Albion Online Shop
Once an island is purchased, it is retained regardless of Premium status until it is abandoned
Player islands have the same layout; the only difference between islands will be the type of buildings a player places on their island
Islands may be upgraded for Silver to Tier 6. Each upgrade takes two minutes to complete
To upgrade an island, players should visit the island merchant located in the main cities
Player islands may support up to Tier 8 buildings
Players do not need to clear out trees, rocks, etc on an island in order to build. The plot will clear automatically when the build spot is unlocked
To build structures on your island right click your portrait in the top left side of the screen and click build in the drop-down menu, or press H (default bind)
Player islands contain a Travel Planner for fast travel to each main city (with nothing in player's inventory). Travel to the city the island was built in will be free, even with full inventory
The below table shows the cost, not including Global Discount, of purchasing and upgrading the personal island. Each upgrade of a Personal Island will bring additional areas to build on the island. The initial purchase provides a Tier 1 island. At Tier 2, the Farming Merchant will become available on the island.

Players may provide access to their island to any player, guild or alliance they wish. By default, only the owner has permission to access the island. The Access Rights area is on the dock once the player zones into their island. To add access, type in the player's name, guild or alliance and select the + on the Access Rights board, then select "Save".
Additionally, the Access Rights Area reflects a log of Access rights.
Permissions may be set for:
- Access Mode: Private, Guild, Public, Custom
- Co-Owners: Player, Guild, Alliance
- Builder: Player, Guild, Alliance
- Visitor: Player, Guild, Alliance
Players will want to decide if they want to place buildings on their island. The benefit of placing a building is the player will not pay the tax to use the structure they would in the city. However, there is no resource return to a player when using a building on an island.
Players may access the build menu by selecting H or by selecting their avatar and selecting "Build". there are four tabs to choose from:
- Economy: Lumbermill, Smelter, Tanner, Weaver, Toolmaker, Stonemason, Repair Station
- Farming: Alchemist's Lab, Cook, Mill, Butcher, Saddler, Farm, Herb Garden, Pasture, Kennel
- Military: Warrior's Forge, Mage's Tower, Hunter's Lodge
- Houses: Guild Hall (only available on Guild Island), House
If a building is unfinished and no longer needed, the player needs to complete the build and then demo. You will receive 90% of the materials in return. It is important to remember to use the "Demolish" option in the building's menu and not a Demolition Hammer otherwise materials will not be returned for any structure on the island.
In some cases, players may want to delete their island in favor of a new location. Players can delete their island by returning to the same Island Merchant used to purchase the island and choose "abandon". There is a pop-up confirmation box that a player must confirm in order to abandon an island - this action cannot be undone once you have selected to abandon the island.
Before abandoning the island, make sure to demolish all buildings, farms, etc. By doing that, you will be able to recover 90% of the materials used to construct. After 1 minute of demolition, the materials will appear in a basket that you can retrieve. It is important to remember to use the "Demolish" option in the building's menu and not a Demolition Hammer otherwise materials will not be returned for any structure on the island.
When a player abandons their island, the next player island the player purchases will receive the current island upgrade level for the cost of the base island level.
