Albion Online Open World PvP Strategies
Albion Online is a medieval free-to-play MMO developed by Sandbox Interactive. This is a non-character MMORPG that offers cross-platform capabilities that allow players to compete together regardless of their platform on iOS, Android, Windows, Mac or even Linux. In PvP mode, 800 teams can join the same map to control the territory.
Many players are wondering whether you need to ride a mount when seeing another player on a mount in open world PvP. The key to being successful in any PvP game is to out number and always have the advantage over your opponents.
There are positives and negatives about travelling mounted and unmounted. Generally it’s better to be mounted, though, because gatherers can easily mount up and run away the second they see you.
You need a fast horse to catch people solo. Gatherers in low blacks are usually seen on T5/6 armored horses so yours needs to be faster unless they mess up and get slowed by mobs/get stuck on something.
Your tactic is to ride in front of them, hit them once to take off their gallop bonus, chase after them while your cds come up and then unload on them. That is why the Double Bladed is so good at dismounting people. It has a movement speed on W and a dash on E plus the amount of cc you have and you should be able to catch up to people on horses without the gallop bonus.
It’s difficult at first but once you learn how to do it, you will have an easier time to catch up to people. A direwolf is perfect for ganking but quite expensive. The difference it makes is huge, though. Don’t get discouraged by people getting away from you if you solo gank, it just happens sometimes and there isn’t much you can do about it.
Checking solo dungeons in blacks is a good idea. They won’t have a big chance to flee. Most of them don’t run great gear so you should be able to 1v1 them but always be careful in those situations because most of the ganking weapons aren’t that great in duels.
Waiting at exits is not a good idea because people get the protection bubble which holds for a long time. Unless they randomly attack you, you won’t have a chance to catch them. You also run the risk of having a big group coming out and destroying you because you don’t have the protection bubble.
In my opinion solo ganking is too tiresome. If you have 1 or 2 people who can join you, you will have a much better and easier time. As soon as you can afford a direwolf (and afford to lose it) your entire ganking world will change.
Although there are countless players in Albion Online and their adventures, the Sandbox MMORPG has not yet been officially released. That will change in the summer of this year! It is very necessary for you to make money in game to prepare for Albion Online. However, you can buy Albion Online gold cheap on UpAlbion if you don’t have enough time to make money.
