Unofficial Fansites, Guides and Useful Links
Is my Albion Online?
Lets start with is.my-albion.online, it is a super quickly coded tiny website that checks if the albion servers are online, similar to our launcher. But some of you might not have your launcher on other devices.
Beginner Guides by Scythian
If you are looking for beginner guides for yourself or to link to your friends, we recomment the guides by Scythian on the official guides section. He wrote guides for the tutorial starting quest, the follow up quest and how to get your free T2 starting mount, how to go about unlocking all T3 weapons, armor & crafting and how to tackle the first expeditions on T3.
On his spreadsheet you can find among many other links..
- popular albion youtube channels
- albion twitch streamers
- Ver’s opinions on the popularity and the viablity of weapons
- a softcap item power calculator
- a table showcasing the different power levels of items
Elsa’s Item Skills & Stats Spreadsheet
Elsa, one of the Super Moderators of the forum made a very handy Item Skills & Stats Spreadsheet where you can find an overview and detailed stats about all the skills of the game, presented in a nice and easily readable format. It also has tables about stats of armors, mounts, accessories and other neat stuff for you stat fanatics out there.
ChronoChimera Cheat Sheet
ChronoChimera‘s cheat sheet updated last for Hector has a lot of useful ingame information. Timer reset times, respawn timers of various chests, loot tables, drop chances for mount babys, puppys & fawns, fame modifiers for zones, premium bonus details, group fame modifiers, a list of chat & emote commands, the item power softcap table, expedition mob details, the black market formula, island upgrade costs and other info.
Once you got into the game a bit and are looking for more details, its highly recommendet!
Inofficial Dev Tracker
I have to say I hate Albion Offline with a passion, because the only thing they to is automate and repost official content without anything interesting added to that for what I assume is ad revenue. But they have to my knowledge the only working dev-tracker for Albion Online currently.
AlbionHelper.com is mostly used to find out where potential spawns for resources or other things in any particular zone are located. This makes it easier for you to find the nodes you are looking for quickly and efficiently. Remember to go the map menu on the top right and de-select the nodes you do not want to display.
Albion Item Database Websites
AlbionOnline2D (AO2D) is a database and tools website that is under development, but already has a lot of promissing features. In addition to a working item and spells database it features an albion map for your browser that reminds me of eve’s dotlan. It’s not perfect yet, but worth bookmarking for sure.
Other Links & Resources
Albion Trade Federation – Out-of-Game Trade Discord
The Albion Trade Federation Discord is an out-of-game discord trade chat to post WTB / WTS / WTT offers and chat with fellow merchants and traders. Disclaimer: This is my side-project.
The player HaH Reported periodically updates his Guild Registry thread, which is worth checking out as well, if you want an overview about guilds or are looking for a new one.
Startup Costs Spreadsheet
A very useful spreadsheet is the ‘Startup Costs‘ spreadsheet, that has some simulations on tax income for guilds, but also building costs (silver & resources) detailed in very helpful tables. Check it out for sure.
