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.

File: 1557256155406-1.png (30.03 KB, 296x220, 74:55, guild.png) ImgOps iqdb

my name in the game is megapal if you wanna add me, I got enough gold to make a guild if I can get anyone to play, we can make a cool name and decide on a nice crest together that we get to wear on our capes

I made this crest as an example, the unicorn represents virginity, and I used the wizardchan theme for inspiration on the colors


is this similar to ultima online?

Life fuel if so.


yeah I'd say it's in the vein of like ultima online and runescape, that kinda stuff, it's open world and there is only one server, there are safe zones which are no pvp and then a bunch of zones with higher level resources are full pvp


I'm still playing this game if anyone wants to join me…


I’m completely addicted to this game


I bought premium so I could get my own island and it's pretty cool, this is so addicting, I wish a few wizards would play with me, I have no friends


File: 1557961033207.gif (4.72 KB, 200x200, 1:1, well then I m off _674c6cb….gif) ImgOps iqdb

wait wait. so you wanna play a MMORPG game with wizes?

why didn't you just say so!

do you need some complementing class to play with?


I mean class like in "builds"


it's just a freeform sandbox game, I was hoping we could start a wizard guild, all I've been doing is fishing and gathering various resources and crafting them into stuff to sell, I think there are dungeons and stuff too but I haven't tried them. there aren't any classes, you just are what you wear, so if you equip a sword then you are a melee fighter, if you equip a staff then you're a mage, and stuff like that. it's pretty fun, there is only one server so it's just like one big world with 10k+ players running around at the same time


we are now at two players wizzies, still looking for more, it's fun, I'm more than happy to stock you with some gear and stuff too!


File: 1558135706721.png (2.19 MB, 1920x1080, 16:9, screen3.png) ImgOps iqdb

We've started the guild, three members so far, if you're bored come play with us, I can provide gear and mounts for everyone


I also bought (paid $10) premium so I could get an island for us, right now I have my own personal island that all of you are invited to visit and use the cooking facilities I've built, there's also a guild island where I'll be stocking the guild bank with free stuff


slowpoke wiz here. that sounds exactly like the type of game I would not enjoy playing. is like runescape (or minecraft) and I never liked that game even when everyone at school was going at it.

well then have fun


File: 1558182094265.png (3.79 MB, 1920x1080, 16:9, skinning.png) ImgOps iqdb

I never liked those either, but now I have over 100 hours in this game


feel free to keep us updated about your doings there


some bad people have been ddosing the servers on and off recently, but soon I'm sure it will be resolved


the new premium mount's spell seems pretty good for avoiding pvp in yellow/red zone exploration

i suggest getting it if you can


Is it possible to get premium status by buying it with regular game currency (think runescape bonds)


yeah it costs about 3 or 4mil I think


Is that an amount you can get in a reasonable amount of time? or do you have to glued 24/7 to the screen to sustain it?


File: 1559489652861.png (405.73 KB, 470x771, 470:771, guild.png) ImgOps iqdb

Yeah, the rate is about $1 per 150 gold or 300k silver. It's the same kind of subscription thing as runescape so you can buy premium with game money instead of wasting real money.

I'm still looking for people to play, this is the guild so far, you can see some people have been playing, some quit. Sorry if I'm not on much lately, I feel really scared and anxious and I've been cutting my time so I don't get nightmares and scared to play. Also I think the ddosing has stopped for now, servers aren't lagging anymore.


How to get silver?


things drop silver and you sell stuff to other people for silver,once you get to tier 5 resources you shouldn't have a problem making enough money


friendly reminder that the market price for tier 4 leather is higher in bridgewatch compared to martlock (at least 20-25 silver more per leather), i suggest refining your T4 hides in martlock (due to the 35% resource return rate and cheap crafting taxes) and selling them in bridgewatch

tier 4 characters (i.e. <48 hrs new characters) can probably farm at least 62.5k silver per day; for reference, 30 days premium costs 5000k as of today.


How to get royal sigils? I read on the wiki that you get them from expeditions but I did one and didn't get one


>62.5k silver per day
I make like 500k a day just doing a run for tier 4 leathers and cottons and making bags that takes just a few hours


How many bags does it take to get 500k? and which town do you sell them in?


it was a heavy underestimation, assuming that the guy only sell raw resources and does not process them further into advanced material/finished goods


about a 150bags in martlock


It took me 2 hours to make 10


File: 1559996314087.png (462.3 KB, 516x840, 43:70, flex.png) ImgOps iqdb

1 week worth of non-premium expedition farming

also jesus this game is such a chore if you're playing healer, the actual amount of braindead melee dps that i have to babysit


I thought nobody was playing this game anymore


yeah sad


I wish you wizzies would get on more often, the game is kind of fun but it gets boring quickly without people to talk about it/do things together in game


What can we do together, wiz? I started the game a few days ago, but I didn't have the motivation to complete the tutorial.


wait are you guys playing? I got sad because no one was ever online so I stopped coming on, I really want to play but only with lots of wizzies because my main goal is crafting and I want to supply gear and stuff


and I don’t mean there has to be lots, maybe just like 3 people would be fine


also if you’re playing just send me a friend request, my username is megapal


File: 1560160229313.png (1.51 MB, 1277x957, 1277:957, guild.png) ImgOps iqdb

accepted snacko, sent a friend request to anonymousmagic


really wish we can have a coordinated session of RD or something


yeah, I'm near tier 5 with druid items so I could heal, not sure about time zones for everyone though, it's 6am here and I just got up to add some people, gonna be on later today though (in 12~ hours)


File: 1560216023856.png (1.66 MB, 1440x927, 160:103, guild1.png) ImgOps iqdb

sorry, I keep missing you anonymousmagic, I think we are starting to get players now though


File: 1560230547578.png (2.18 MB, 1920x1080, 16:9, Screenshot from 2019-06-11….png) ImgOps iqdb

had lots of fun today, I'm glad more people are playing, hope you all stick around!


These names seem familiar for some reason


otaku succubus added me on steam, he's part of the wizchan steam group I guess, I don't know about nekofreak though he just disappeared after playing a couple days. Neither of them are planning on playing though, it seems, so if they're annoying or something you won't run in to them probably.


its the gay mod clique


File: 1560294773156.png (220.17 KB, 480x441, 160:147, laasc.png) ImgOps iqdb

we are looking to start running dungeons and stuff, I'm a tier 5 druid so I go the heals but it would be cool, anyone that wants to play in big plate armor and swing around a big hammer could come, have fun, and tank with friends, the rest of the clan is pushing more dps-oriented so anyone that wants to tank would be cool


File: 1560299549428.png (2.25 MB, 1920x1080, 16:9, 1546364911640.png) ImgOps iqdb

Hahaha more like part of the banned from wizchan clique


How does one access the guild's island?


it's in martlock, you talk to the pirate looking lady near the entrance



servers are back up and new patch as well


File: 1560361276225.png (456.5 KB, 484x904, 121:226, guild3.png) ImgOps iqdb

I realized I could give ranks so I gave out ranks and booted people that hadn't logged in for weeks, also upgraded the guild hall, I'm going to add laborers for everyone to use, also I'm going to fill up a chest with fish, anyone is welcome to take


File: 1560361824471.png (2.67 MB, 1920x1080, 16:9, guildhall.png) ImgOps iqdb

here's the guild, just basic gathering laborers right now, I'll probably add some decorations in a bit too


I'm stupid. I talked to her when I first arrived, but I obviously wasn't paying any attention.
Thank you.


Hardcore game. Most similar to early UO, proper hardcore wizzie game.

Carebear normie pussies are too afraid killed in games like this


Just pissed off there is no stealing in the game. Just why? There was snooping and stealing in UO.


Half of the areas in this game are full loot, you can just whack them and take all their stuff

wizzies try out wizdungeon, wizzies need more wizzie players ;(

please join us, we got lots of fun

friends im raising a couple of fawns, just message me when im in-game tomorrow and ill give you one (assuming they're already mature)

stat wise i think giant stag is almost similar to T5 riding horse


yeah, stag is best in pvp zones when you're gathering, fast with a bit of holding capacity


I decided to try out claws, and holy crap they are so cool, try them with hunters jacket(haste) and a morgana cape(mark of the raven), hit R then E, watch the slice and dice, absolutely fun

File: 1560449344025.png (587.24 KB, 889x549, 889:549, swampdragon.png) ImgOps iqdb

Made about 1mill today gathering stuff, bought this swamp dragon, it's pretty nice, real fast, doesn't get slowed when it gets hit


seems such a waste friend, i believe T7 ox would've been a better investment in the long run


I had a t7 ox, swapped it out for the lizard, liking the lizard way more so far, especially when I'm skinning


when it comes to aesthetics i too prefer anything else other than oxen, but that +3k kg carry weight is really useful for transporting multiple stacks of resources between cities


yeah, the carry weight is nice, but what I like about the swamp dragon is that I can run through packs of aggressive mobs and I won't lose speed, also I am max speed as soon as I mount back up from gathering something, since it has a flat 90% move speed bonus at all times. I'm thinking that once I hit elder adventurer I'll just pick up an elder ox for heavy duty tasks

also I think speed is necessary when you're hunting animal in swamp zones, since they are so sparse, ox is much too slow for that


File: 1560603227670.png (3.02 MB, 1920x1080, 16:9, cabins.png) ImgOps iqdb

I build tents for the rest of the laborers (crafting oriented), picture is the imbuers cabin next to the mages tower, farther to the north-west there are some tents for the fletching, blacksmith, and tinkerer laborers

I'm working on getting all laborers on the guild island to tier 4 right now


You're awesome, wiz!


it's making me angry seeing max tier gatherers scraping low tier resources out of blue zones, just had a tier 8 miner steal half a tin node from me, it seems like once you were that level you wouldn't waste your time mining low tier spots since you can buy a max stacks of low tier resources like tin for basically nothing, same reason I don't bother picking up tier 2 resources, leave it to the noobs


Reminds me of Runescape where some faggot moves into your spot and waits until the last moment to grab the ore you've been mining.


fortunately it doesnt happen too often, but it was mid saturday and that zone had nearly 200 people stuffed in it. most gatherers are like me, if they see you're near a node they'll respect that and leave it alone, silently acknowledging that you saw it first


I just started playing this and while I am still learning and having fun, it does seem somewhat empty at times. No quests, and all i'm really doing is crafting shit. Still seems nice tho.

Bots are an even worse problem in runescape nowadays.


Quests would be nice if and only if are they interesting. Hell, they could be fetch quests as long as it's meaningful.


the main game is dungeons and sort of political alliance pvp business, the action you’ll find is through other players rather than just speaking with a static NPC, in the future I’m thinking we should decide on an alliance to join which will net us I believe some exclusive benefits like protection and exclusive gathering areas which flag all non-alliance members for pvp. I’m just hoping more people stick around in the guild, otherwise we won’t be able to do dungeons together, and I really enjoyed the last dungeon we ran even though I believe it was tier 5 so it was a bit too hard it was really great playing together with fellow wizzies and that’s what I’m still looking forward to


is there any specific farm product that you want me to produce? im currently producing wheat and goat milk/meat

i noticed that some laborers in the guild hall lacks bed and table happiness, i believe unhappy laborers will produce less and level slower

anyway i've finished some T4 gamekeeper journals, maybe ill drop some in our guild chest tomorrow


I added bed and table last night, but it requires 24 hours for their happiness to go up, I’m working on getting materials to upgrade all the smaller houses to at least tier 5, I think the guild hall could use 1 or 2 more beds but I’m gonna wait to upgrade the hall then add tier 5 beds/table

kinda offtopic here, but what kind of potion are you focusing to produce?


healing potions, I can usually make about 50 a day, I need to stop wasting my money and upgrade my island for a little more farm space

new update in about 3 weeks

>solo random dungeons

>more character customization options
>weapon reworks


Agreed, the implementation would have to be right.

This is true, and i am still getting my feet wet. So far its been a lot of fun making things and exploring new provinces. Wizards guild sounds cool.


hope they finally rebalance the xbows, i really hate the fact that someone with a one-handed xbow and a torch can fire bolts faster than someone with a chu-ko-nu


>Wizards guild sounds cool
we have a guild wizzie, have you joined yet?


This game is free to play, right?
I'm a total /dumb/ about this game.
Are there ads? How can i tell if my computer can handle it?


It's free and if it wasn't boyposter would buy it for you because he's very desperate for goons to look down to


Not yet, still wanna familiarize myself with the game.


I don't look down on anyone, this is a guild of friends, what mine is yours wizzie! I've spent millions and millions of gold already just for the wellbeing of my friends that wanna play with me

don't be afraid wizzie, if you're confused or anything we can all help you, and we've got a endless supply of money to buy you whatever you want and if we run out and you still need help then we'll all do our best to help and make more money

spent 4 hours this morning mining granite, managed to make about 450 granite blocks, got bored of mining granite so I just spent all my money on the last 450 blocks, now our laborers can be upgraded to tier 5 with this new mansion!


being an arcanist is really fun, hope we can queue up together for a session of rd :)



game is being hit with hardest DDOS yet, devs just decided to shut down the servers for now and they say they'll probably be down at least 24 hours while the do something


I just downloaded the game today. I thought the terrible latency was just part of the game. I'll have to give it another try when all of this is sorted out.


it usually runs really well, but there is a large group of people attempting to hold the developers servers for ransom because the devs are just a small team, it is really sad because it will no doubt cause the game to lose players


Told you I was going to rev up my botnet.


cant wait for ddos garb™

or better yet, data-leak cape™


[UPDATE 22.06.07:33] We managed to bring the server back online after pulling an all-nighter. Everything seems to be running smoothly for now, but we will be closely monitoring the situation.

I found this cool program, it's for runescape and it's called 'alt1 toolkit' but it works for any game, lets you open up youtube windows that will stay on top of your game
← like this

pretty nice if you're looking to play and watch some stuff, also supports twitch and has some utility items like timers and notepad


I wish there was more to do on this game for f2p players other than grinding and the random expedition/rd

after 275 hours in game, I have finally crafted my first masterpiece item

it must be my lucky day, masterpiece #2


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

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

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
