Any wizzies wanna play this game with me? It went F2P recently and so I just started playing it and got about 20 hours so far since two days ago, it's a nice time waster I guess. We could get a wizguild going again or something if anyone cares.

This game's good for catching up on podcasts and listening to music.

Yeah, I'm not getting the same millage as Runescape.

Its possible make real money with this game?


Boyposter has moved on to runescape and left you hanging like the used rugs he sees everyone as

Boyposter is very interesting


What's the reasoning behind this moniker?


He's a faggot and he likes boys. He posts on /b/ almost everyday so go see for yourself. You'll recognize him when you see him.


>go see for yourself
No thanks. I prefer to avoid getting cancer.
From my experience with him in the game, he has not been a faggot.


I’m not playing runescape I’m just sad no one ever logs in Albion but me an achmed


I’ll be on in like 2 hours cause I got class on mondays but I’m almost done I’m really bored and wanna hang with the wizpals, I hope people are playing


to clarify, I’m sad because I was hoping to craft stuff and equip out all the wizpals with good wizardly gear for no charge, then we could spend time playing together like dungeons and expeditions, I’ve already invested millions of silver into the well-being of the guild members, I just want people to play with but it seems like no one wants to play


I reiterate my point that there is just not enough interesting stuff to do for f2p players.

Let's compare Albion f2p to Runescape f2p: in Runescape I can telegrab zammy wine for 1 hour, get some nice magic exp and sell my wines for hefty chunks of money. It provides positive feedback on two areas: got magic exp, maybe even got some levels and unlocked new stuff that'll be useful later down the road AND got a nice amount of money.

Now let's see what I can do in 1 hour in Albion: I can harvest leather in a certain map, get some exp in my fighting style of choice and get around 300~ leathers ready to be sold. But in the grand scheme of things, what little combat exp I got was irrelevant, because I didn't unlock anything, and if I did, I didn't unlock anything other-worldly, since most tier upgrades are marginal and previous tier quality 1 is same or better than next tier quality 0. Most of the time you'll want to be wearing t4.1 stuff because of how cheap and replaceable it is. Next, the leathers. I can process them into ready-to-be-used leather, but, again, what little exp I got was marginal and didn't matter at all. If I process them into finished goods, I got extra crafting exp, but lost money since finished goods sell for less than ready materials. If I were to sell at the peak of its cost, while they're ready materials, I would STILL get too little money back for how much time I invested. Compared to Runescape, Albion can't hold my attention for long enough because of how little positive feedback it provides.

Both games provide a way to gain access to p2p content by simply playing the f2p version, albeit at a very grindy cost which becomes less grindy once you manage to break the first grind barrier. In Albion p2p there is some extra stuff I can do that f2p players can't, like islands or farming, or cooking, or growing animals or making potions. This is all fine and dandy but you can't forget that this is content that is unavailable to f2p players. Farming, growing animals, cooking food or making potions is a nice distraction from the usual Albion grind (which is available to f2p players and does NOT change once you get to p2p). F2p players don't get access to this distraction thus making it very easy to burn out since all you can do as a f2p is player is to grind money to get p2p and then enjoy the p2p distractions, but then the game becomes getting enough money during p2p so you don't lose the distractions, and at which point you're no longer playing a game and are rather working a job.

Runescape blows Albion out of the water when it comes to p2p content, making the f2p grind to p2p worth it because of how much there is to do once you go p2p. Runescape's p2p distractions are not only that, distractions, but they're the grind within themselves: for example, in p2p I no longer am restricted to killing cows in Lumbridge for leather, I can go kill Zulrah, or kill cows in a farm located in p2p, or I can use some other p2p mechanic that gives me lots of leathers; I no longer am restricted to killing goblins outside of the Al Kharid gate or the rats under the Lumbridge castle for combat exp, there is a HUGE world out there full of monsters that I can train on, and if I ever get bored of killing one kind of monster, I can always, ALWAYS, go kill some other monster. Hell, there's even a skill based on this concept alone (Slayer). And do I ever have the need to grind to keep my p2p subscription? no! I can EASILY get enough money for a Runescape bond within 14 days of p2p, INCREDIBLY EASILY, so easy that it doesn't even feel like a grind, and I get positive feedback from everything, coming from all sides.

There's just no contest between the f2p and p2p experience in both games. If Albion ever wants to keep a f2p player from burning out, it must have enough content, that is both diverse enough AND interesting enough, to keep the player's attention AND have a world of p2p content ready for when the f2p player becomes p2p.

once you get premium 30 days at least once you get these features forever

albion is about a player-run world, runescape is just like a single-player game in a multiplayer engine, I want to have fun with other wizzies and I can't do that in runescape, plus albion is new and the combat is actually fun compared to runescape. Eventually in real end game albion you can be running shops in cities and do guild vs guild pvp and dungeons together, in runescape you are just stuck soloing the same boss over and over again

runescape is just old and not fun, it doesnt have group content for us to play together in, it's just a single player experience with a chat room

leather haul tonight, gonna be rich


File: 1561441572434.png (550.93 KB, 886x896, 443:448, siege.png) ImgOps iqdb

is lucky i can craft this siegebow for less than 400k i guess (dunno if its a net gain or loss)


120 dmg seems kinda underwhelming for an item like that.

We've now joined an alliance with 100 other guilds

still looking to play with people… I think everyone is drifting away


File: 1561659816120.png (104.05 KB, 412x128, 103:32, aaaa.png) ImgOps iqdb

at exactly 300 hours, I maxed the basic adventure tree




wizzies, I'm getting kinda burnt out admittedly after basically playing 10 hours a day for the past month or so, I'm probably gonna take a brake at least for a few days before playing again


is this what the new sudden update contains? i thought the weapon rebalance comes with percival update


no, there have been on-going small updates to deal with ddos issues, the big content update is on the 10th of july


File: 1561737589816.png (1.08 MB, 1118x724, 559:362, PonyWizard.png) ImgOps iqdb

hey wizzies I want to play too!
my character name is Ponymancer. How TF do I contact you guys?
My build ATM is Tank/Mage. Archery seems too restrictive and only good for solo play (even tho it has high dps)
MESSAGE Ponymancer
DO IT! I will protect my wizpals and slay succubi!


File: 1561738642961.png (190.1 KB, 323x610, 323:610, guild.png) ImgOps iqdb

so this is the current guild roster, everyone here can invite other people


File: 1561747834168.png (459.29 KB, 557x557, 1:1, save me fripp.png) ImgOps iqdb

I was sodomized in Lesser Hell by two buff guys. I've learned not to go into strange portals.


i have to refer this game to a friend just to get the drink ale emote this game is anally fucked man


What does everyone think of percival so far?


>need 300 gold to give my character a mullet
shit and dead in the water


plus the new update to customisations have indirectly (or perhaps directly?) cause an increase in gold's value (2300+ as of now, compared to ~2000 before the update was announced), which means 30 days premium costs like 6M now


U Guys still playing this game?


me, no, I played a little over 300 hours total, it's not worth it


Why no? is pay to win?


no, it is incredibly grindy, you won't really get anywhere unless you're a normalfag and you like being social and whatnot so that you can get in a good guild and do pvp with them to steal resources from people that aren't in good guilds


it's a 'pvp-oriented' MMO, the experience is akin to a MOBA game but everytime you die you have to buy new equipments or grind for em.

and unlike other mmos in the market, this game has little to no solo-content

more or less this, 5 people with average equipments can gang up on 1 end-game player no problemo


you are using Age of empire 2 online community therminology!


Does anyone still play? Whats the best way to make alot of money? I've been grinding and selling resources mainly but it seems like it's taking forever. In OSRS I could just grind silver or fish and make a decent amount that way, there has to be a similar winning ticket for albion.


I got a little over 300 hours, there’s nothing to do but grind unless you’ve got a group, I was unsuccessful in getting together more than a couple people to play with me though so I quit


Well that sucks. Maybe if I try arena or pvp in the black zone.


If anyone still plays, solo dungeons are pretty fun. Might get into arena and pvp once I improve.


still here, whats your build wizzo?


Usually tier 5 fire staff and mage w/ leather gear. Very useful against mobs especially in confined spaces.


our builds are almost similar then :) im running warlock with cleric cowl, mage robe & assassin shoes; i can easily clear solo RDs no problemo but i dont know the viability of this set-up in pvp/arena


File: 1573702664180.png (529.44 KB, 595x851, 595:851, warlock.png) ImgOps iqdb

new build: replaced mage armor with leather :0
the difference is now i can self-heal with bloodlust


Yeah it should do well pvp, arena is more geared towards area denial i think so pyro should be sufficient.

It’s been about 6 months since anyone played, I’m thinking about getting back into this game, new update changed a lot it seems, especially in regards to transmuting resources

anyone up for some albion?


why even bother playing albion, andrew?
the only activity for us solo pve-ers is skinning and even then the profit margin keeps getting smaller and smaller


Dont forget dungeons and pvp if you're strong enough.


solo DG is so dumb and unfun, some nignog is just gonna boss rush and steal all the loot


I just wanna play games with wizzies :(


That honestly sounds really fun! I suck at human interaction as well, but I'd be willing to give it a go if it meant helping a wiz guild out.


the guild is pretty much dead, and you'd be better off playing literally any other MMO with more pve content
