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
A player may only have one player island per character
One an island is purchased, it is retained regardless of Premium status
Islands may be upgraded for Silver to Tier 6. Each upgrade takes two minutes to complete
To upgrade an island, player's should visit the island merchant
Travel to the player island is free from the same city the island is located in
Player islands may support up to Tier 8 buildings
Upon upgrading a personal island, the island will be unavailable for approximately 2 minutes, while it is being upgraded

Players may provide access to their island to any player 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. 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 may access the build menu by selecting H or by selecting their avatar and selecting "Build"
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.
