Unlike most MMORPGs that utilize a class-based system for characters, Albion has done away with this altogether. Instead of creating a character to fulfill a specific role, or having to keep changing roles using an NPC within the game, Albion allows for changing at any point in time. This is because it uses a gear-based system instead... >>more

Instead, stats and effectiveness are based on the current gear players have equipped and which stat bonuses they’ve chosen. This puts the game in a unique situation...... >>more

On top of this, it’s made even worse when it comes to PvP.... >>more

In MMORPGs, there is a common idea that getting in the game and progressing ahead of the herd is a good idea (which it is, if you’re able to).
