The first section you’ll actually across in the game are PvE areas which not allow all types of PvP although you are flagged. The next area with brown text, little swords, and one skull is what’s called limited PvP areas. For the full PvP areas, the symbol will be red with three skulls with swords and axes.

The Difference Between Limited PvP and Full PvP

Limited PvP Area

Limited PvP means you cannot attack other players unless you or another player is flagged. The flagged player will be displayed as a red dot clearly on the map. This gives you a chance to attack or flee from that player. It can be very beneficial to see if someone’s going to come attack you if you’re not flagged in the area. Or vice versa if you are flagged, people can easily sneak up and try to kill you as well.

If you are planning to go to the limited PvP area, do not flag yourself from the start since another player can see you clearly on the map. This mean they will know your location and can kill you easily.

Instead, look for a player who is flagged, sneak, and kill them with a small group of people. A 1-1 duel isn’t recommended since it’s too risky. There will be a chance of losing all equipment.

Full PvP Area

A full PvP area, on the other hand, will not show the flagged player on the map. This mean everyone you see in the area can attack you and loot all of your items and equipment. Be ready to fight at any time when you are in the Full PvP area.

It’s also recommended to always be flagged since it allows you to freely attack other players. And you can also defend yourself from enemies as well because you can be attacked at any time without knowing when. And remember that some dungeon including Hellgates is located in the PvP area as well.

Flagging System

You can flag yourself easily by turning this mode on. There is a small icon on the top next to your character name saying “Click to change to hostile. Changing to hostile will allow you to attack friendly players. It only works in PvP-enabled regions”

When you click, it takes about two minutes or so to enable PvP. You will be flagged and able to attack another player freely as long as you are in the PvP areas.

Why Venture to PvP Areas

PvP area in Albion Online isn’t just about killing and looting people for fun. Resource is almost everything in the sandbox game like Albion. And all precious and high quality will be found only in the PvP area as explained in our Complete Resource and Crafting Explanation article. This alone is worth the risk of losing your life. But remember; always travel as a group when you are in a full PvP area. If you friend isn’t online, go to the limited area instead and keep distant from a flagged player.

Build and Class Progression System

Class system in Albion Online works a little bit different from other MMO games. You do not have to pick a class at the beginning of the game. You do not bound to any class throughout the whole game. Instead, your class is pretty much determined by what kind of gear you actually wear. Wearing plate armor and melee weapon is necessary to play as a warrior class. And you can be a ranger at any time when you change an armor and weapon type.

Class Progression

However, this doesn’t mean that you can be a high level ranger just only you have a high tier for the ranger gear in your possession. Instead, you need to unlock ranger tier, currently max at tier 10, in the destiny board, which is the main character progression system in Albion.

Each tier in the destiny board requires a certain fame to unlock it. Fame can be gained by using that weapon and armor. The more you use it, the more fame will be obtained. And the more you unlock tier in the destiny board, the higher tier of equipment you can equip. This progression method goes the same way with crafting and gathering as well.

Another uniqueness of the class system in Albion Online is that you don’t need to wear only one specific armor type. You can mix and match everything together. For example, if you would like to play as a mage, equip its weapon to get this class skill such as healing. At the same time you are able to wear heavy armor to get more tankiness and interrupt skills, there is nothing wrong with it.

Create Your Own Build

It means you can switch weapon and armor type to find out which skill is most suitable for your character and situation. You can wear the leather helm allowing you to be invisible for a short moment. This creates a thousand of opportunities for a single character in Albion. Each weapon or armor you wear gives different abilities. It’s not necessary to play as a specific class. Instead, you can create your own style with it.

Albion Online Class is about variation. A good strategy is to try out a bunch of different builds that fits you the most. Then, you will find what playstyle feel most comfortable and most entertain with.
