Albion Online Personal Island Guide with Tips and Tricks
Let’s start with understanding what is Personal Island,
What is Personal Island in Albion Online, and why you should Get one?
The private Island is a piece of land on any of the big cities in Albion online. Once you buy the Island in any city, then it can only be accessed from the city you purchased it. The players can do any activity on the Private Island like farming, build houses, hire labours, and craft stations.
So, on the private Island, you can do any activity from farming to build a house, growing food for yourself, crafting for yourself and your friends and many more. So, What should you do on your private Island? Well, it depends on you. You can use your private Island for monetary profits or as a safe haven for you and your friends to craft and chat with your friends.
Why you should buy your personal Island in Albion Online?
Before buying the Island, the first thing you need to do is pick a city in which you want to live. All the cities are the same in Albion online, as you will get the same layout and options. But, the difference arises from the resources surrounding the city. Every city has one dominant profitable resource, so it becomes extremely important to select your city carefully if you want to specialize in a particular craft.
Each city has its benefits in Albion Online. Another thing you should consider when selecting the city is your friends or clan should be located in the same city as it will be easier for you to squad up with your friends and clanmates to go around for loot. If you are a beginner or a new player, then I suggest you select any city other than Caerleon as it is surrounded by Red zones and you cannot travel with luggage and top of that, Caerleon entrances are huge choke points for PVP fights.
