Hi Everybody!

I know I don't come around very often, but I saw something and it made me think of the clan.

Have you guys seen this?

https://albiononline.com/

Looks pretty interesting.

I agree. I am playing it too. World PVP sandbox game.

Ya make what ya use. Its more centered on gear. Gear determines what your skills are and there are no levels of the character just progression in gear and that levels by using/making it.

Ya can loot who ya kill and some is destroyed like eve but this is a medieval setting. It is worth checking out IMO.

I find it very interesting that this game and Archeage both have elements of EVE in their concept. EVE held my attention longer than any other game in the last 15 years.

Sounds interesting but is this game going to be Free to play vs premium account once released? Silly that we have to buy to beta test if it is going to have mostly ftp accounts once it goes live?

Any of you guys going to be playing in the closed beta? I just bought my pack and would love to connect since this looks like a more group/guild oriented game

I'm in starting tomorrow! I won't have much time to play until the weekend however.

I wasn't going to buy into this game but then I watched it on Twitch today and thought it actually had some potential. I've spent $30 on worse (i.e. hats in Dota 2) so I thought I'd give it a shot.

I'll post names here when I'm in.

the more I play this game, it feels so much like uo but the uo .. options aren't there. all the armor looks the same so making an orc look might be tough. we could take helmets off and go the old bald head route but I'm sure players would whine about not having stats.

it's so close though, I can taste it.

How has the game changed since karma and combat overhauls? I was playing pretty heavily at the beginning of the year but quickly lost interest.

The 5v5 fights for guild turf in particular bugged me due to the way it segmented the guild into groups of people who get to participate and groups who don't.

It's changed and will continue to change with next wipe coming soon. There are far more open world pvp hotspots now and more coming. You would need to catch up on the AO news though because it's a lot of changes coming.

If anyone plays at next wipe or release send me a PM if you need friends or a guild to ally with / join.

I am. Just grabbed the base starter pack.

For me, it's between Legends of Aria, and Albion Online for my next genuine attempt at dedication in an MMO.

I bought Veteran Founder ($30?) a long time ago, played for a week or two casually/solo and haven't touched the game since. Fun & interesting for a bit solo, but def a group game.

That said, if there is a Shadowclan group, I will certainly be willing to spend some free time gathering/farming/etc. I don't really have much of a PvP itch to scratch at this point, but maybe the fire can be re-kindled. Something about defending your turf with/for a group you feel invested in...

Watching some (sponsored) gameplay atm https://www.twitch.tv/ziggydlive - looks like they are having some stability issues, but that is to be expected.

Legends of Aria also looks very cool, but I try not to board the hype train these days.

Albion Online is a bigger hit than most Alpha/Beta players expected. Hundreds of players in every zone I've been in, thousands of players in every town. There have been some localized lag/rubberbanding issues, but for me it hasn't been game-breaking, and I am based out of the "worst" city (Fort Sterling).



Joined up with an ex-Catskills/UO player, he was in the COY/Militia guild. We are attempting to recruit for Guardsmen Militia currently, but it is very slow going. There is not much of an RP presence in the game, I can only think of one guild (Rangers of Celidon) that has been really successful in recruiting. They were formed in the Beta, and transitioned well into launch.

Anyone interested in grouping up (guild or not), or wanting a hand getting jump-started, hit me up. I'm still flailing about in the "blue zones" (think UO Trammel), but I can craft T3 gear for everything but cloth/caster stuff and would gladly craft you a few starter sets of gear/tools. (Shadowclan Discord: Kubub)

I would love to be a part of some sort of Shadowclan Brigands guild, or something like that, but it doesn't appear that there is much interest here.

Take care & happy gaming!

So I keep seeing an increased interest in this game. Checking this thread it sounds like Velgamog created a Shadowclan guild a while back. Is Velgamog still active in the game? Has anyone been able to reach out to him and join up. If it is still up, it is present in name only and if we wish to make anything more of it and see if we can get things kicking off in an official capacity then get the discussion going on how we can fit the clan into this game.

Velg ran the SC guild back in Beta (Alpha?) - I was in it, if I remember correctly, but work got in the way.

I have not spoken to him, that I can remember, since like Dec '15, and as far as I am aware there is no actual "guild search" function in Albion (in game or website)

*I was informed that one can manually search the guilds list, ranked by "Fame" ... only about 7.2k guilds to sift thru

**There is no character "Velgamog" on the LIVE server, tried to Friend invite him

I haven't gamed much in a year or so. Been feeling the itch and saw that Albion just came out. I'm interested. Not quite dropping the 30 bucks on it yet, but I'm very tempted and doing my research to make a more informed decision. So if the clan does anything, I may be interested. For sure if I buy it.

Still playing Albion, the guild I'm in merged with another small RP clan a few weeks back... it hasn't exactly gone as planned Sad

Albion Online has had some glaring server issues since launch, but for the most part it seems to have been ironed out. No major downtimes/outtages that I'm aware of this week. Sandbox Interactive gave every Premium account 14 days compensation for the past issues, so respect to them for that.

I'm still willing to assist anyone who was a Shadowclanner in the past, in fact I'm willing to drop whatever I currently have going on if someone(s) else show enough interest to actually form a Shadowclan group.

- T4 all Gather skills, T5 Miner
- T4 Toolmaker, T5 Pickaxes
- T5 Plate craft
- T5 Hammer craft
- T4.1 geared currently
- 1m Fame

If there's an off chance that you want to join a newbie-friendly "good guy" guild, The Ironguard is open to anyone willing to RP, guild chat and discord are OOC. If something major doesn't happen soon I will probably be moving on from this Guild as the group we merged with has basically gone inactive & there are only a handful playing daily. Good folks, just not active and recruiting RP players in Albion has proven to be pretty difficult.

Good Luck & Happy Gaming!!!

What do you think so far, Mug'Rukk?

The guild I'm in is still slowly growing, and I do mean slowly. I think we are up to 26 members and about 10 or so are actually active players.

We're spread out with core groups in NA & EU, so there's hope for growth in both areas... I think we are a bit too strict on armor rules/etc but it sort of goes hand in hand with RP. Not many folks in Albion are willing to RP, or even talk to you in /say - voice chat thru Discord seems to be the preferred method of communication.

My biggest concern for the actual game is that there appears to be a considerable amount of resource botting going on, which as everyone is probably well aware has the potential to really screw up pricing/markets.

Some screens:

Teasing the new Recruit - Grimmoch & Corgrimm battling "The Keepers"


AshenTemper (of Shadowbane fame) & Grimmoch in Rowanwood - The bears were fierce, but Ashen's bow won the day


Guild Meeting - Keep Blessing
