General Information

Below you will find the links to current Tutorials and Guides.

Beginner's Guides via the official Albion website is a good resource for new players. Since it is so important for a new player to be able to access these starter guides, here is a short link for sharing in-game conveniently. http://bit.ly/albionguide (even posting bit.ly/albionguide works).

Beginning players will also find the Beginner's Question Forum useful for tips.
