In this guide, we will look at the “what are the Expeditions in Albion Online with their types?“. So, Let’s begin with the guide,
What are Expeditions in Albion Online with their types?
If you have ever seen a big blue portal popping up in different cities and wondered what are they? Then they are called Expeditions in Albion Online. In Albion Online, you can access Expedition through the NPCs (non-player characters ) known as Expedition Masters.
Expeditions are more like dungeons, in which you have to finish the task in about 50 or 60 minutes. The Expeditions are great for new players as they can learn so much about dungeons and gain so much fighting experience by doing them since if you die in it, you will be teleported to the most recent checkpoint, and you will not lose any gear. So, it is excellent for both beginner and experienced players as you can earn lots of sliver and Fame on completing the Expedition, but you will not lose anything if you die in them.
As a beginner or new player, you should start with the normal expeditions, and once you gain the experience, move on to the more hardcore expeditions. The rewards increase with the tier of expeditions as you will get more rewards for the more challenging expedition. Let’s look at the Types of Expedition in Albion Online,
Types of Expedition in Albion Online:
Solo expeditions are best for beginners or new players. You can access the solo Expedition from the expedition master if you have the required item power and Reaver level. Once you enter the Expedition, you will be teleported to a random location, and the NPC character will guide you about your task. You will get 60 minutes to finish the task. You can do a solo Expedition at any time of the day.
As a beginner or new player, you should start with the normal expeditions, and once you gain the experience, move on to the more hardcore expeditions. In Solo Expeditions, you have to defeat the group mobs and collect the silver. If you cannot complete the expeditions within 60 minutes, you will be thrown out of the Expedition, and you will also receive plenty.
The Group Expeditions are a bit more challenging than solo expeditions. You can access the group expedition by visiting the same expedition master. When you access the group expedition, you will place inside the queue with other players, and when the queue gets filled, you will be teleported to a random location.
In Group Expedition, each player will be randomly assigned a role from a tank, DPS, and Healer, and each player has to play according to their role. The tank’s job is to take most of the damage from the Mob, and while DPS has to deal the damage as much damage as he can to the Mobs, and the Healer has a responsibility to keep healing their ally during the fight.
You will get 120 minutes to complete the expedition. If you cannot complete the expedition within 120 minutes, then you teleport back to the place where you have started, and you will also get plenty.
The Hardcore Expeditions are the most challenging Expedition of all, and you will also get a great reward for completing them. But, if you are a new player or beginner, then first practice in a solo and group expedition before jumping into the Hardcore Expedition. In Hardcore Expedition, you have to defeat the high-level MobMob, and you will also need an ancient map to complete the Expedition. You can either find the map or buy it from the market.
You can access the hardcore Expedition with the preferred group of 5 players.
How to unlock new Expeditions?
If you want to unlock new expeditions in Albion Online, then the only way you can do it is by levelling up the Reaver level. For that, you have to unlock more Combat nodes on your destiny board. You can unlock more Combat nodes by completing the expeditions which are available for you or participating in PVP fights.
The Expedition rewards depend on its tier. The higher the tier is, the better rewards you will get.
Should you play Expedition in Albion Online?
In Albion Online, Expeditions are a great way to collect Fame and sliver, and the best thing about doing an expedition is you can also enhance your combat skills by playing them. If you are a new player or beginner, then you should start with the Solo Expeditions first. Once you gain the experience, you can move towards the Group Expeditions and then ultimately to the Hardcore Expedition.
The Fame and Sliver you get from the Expeditions are not much compared to what you can get by doing other activities like Crafting, Farming, or Fishing. Still, it is fun to complete the expeditions once in a while, and you can also enhance your combat skills by playing them.
