Albion Online shows off a tanking build with the Iron-Clad Staff

You spin me right round, baby.

Games like Albion Online offer players a great deal of versatility in builds, but it’s not always immediately apparent how to turn all of those options into actual working character builds. It helps to see what the developers meant for players to do with all of the tools. To that end, the development team for the game is doing exactly that with the Iron-Clad Tank build, showing off the skills and equipment needed for player characters to be staff-based agents of destruction.

Much of the build is centered around picking the right skills for each of the player’s equipment slots, with the Meditation skill on the helmet serving as the centerpiece of the whole build. In play, much of the build centers around the spinning stun effect of Hurricane, which disrupts enemy formations and can be used almost back-to-back with the aid of Meditation. It’s a build that has weaknesses, but a player can wade in and break up an enemy formation thoroughly with this particular build; even if that’s not how you want to play, it should give you ideas for what to do with your character options.

Message 11 (not in OP):There will be a wipe at the end of the CBT.
There will be at least one wipe during CBT, which we plan to announce with good up front notice so it does not come as a surprise

Target system is click over the toon you want. any improvement? list of nearby toons could work?

 if you feel you are “grinding” where others see char developement, maybe the game (albion or another one) isn’t for you.

You have to make the equipement needed to look for the materials for next tier equipement. As tier increases you have to go into worse (or better) PVP zones to get those materials.

You have to get some friends to play with, but this is what MMOs are about…

Nowadays, after almost 2 months of closed beta and with an inside closed beta wipe announced many people  are playing the game.

cures I believe that most mmorpg players enjoy the grind, why would they play games they dont enjoy?

i like many features of this game. but if they do not completely revamp the combat/targeting system, i’ll have wasted 50€ …
Another point is the insanity to have a near-year long cb. no chance that a big part of the current playerbase will do the grind a second time.
