Albion Online have now an exciting feature, from mobs and chests alike, both will now be player-crafted: The Black Market. Gamers have entitled to make use of this new NPC buys items, and then crafters and resells them to the different factions of Albion, as a result of that, the items will be loot drops. Having being said, what is the black market? today, let's talk about the new feature of Albion Online: The Black Market.

 

What is the Black Market 

Simply put, in a game that player-crafted, how do you have equipment drops in a game? Apparently, answer is: have the players craft the drops. In fact, this is where the Black Market comes into play. For this new NPC, and it can be found in Caerleon, the central city of the Royal Continent and the only city linked to the Outlands. 

 

The Black Market as an Item Sink

In Albion Online, gear constantly gets destroyed through PvP. This is especially the case for high tier items, causing lower tier items to accumulate in the economy. In order to create a genuine lower tier sink, we have made the Black Market trader somewhat corrupt. 

 

How Does the Black Market Buy Items

 

 

The Black Market is not your typical merchant, as he does not have a set price per item or infinite demand. Whenever a mob is killed, there is a chance a buy order is generated for the Black Market. Once there are a certain number of active buy orders for an item, the Black Market will start increasing the price of the item. This means that everything on the Black Market is directly linked to players’ actions in the open world.

 

Where is the Black Market getting its funds to purchase items in the first place? We are balancing it in such a way that the orders generated always correspond a percentage of the silver dropped by the mob. This ensures that the silver in the game stays balanced/stable. 

 

Other Benefits of the Black Market

 

 

First of all, we can now also increase the amount of item drops in general. Previously, item drops have been very rare to non-existent, as we did not want to interfere with the player-driven economy. 

 

Secondly, the arrival of the Black Market means we can remove the need for Essences in refining. Essences are originally introduced to the game as way to connect PvE activities and crafting, and were a rather artificial band-aid fix. 

 

Lastly, we are also removing refined resources as a drop from mobs and chests. They will be replaced by player-crafted gear drops instead.

 

The Black Market in Albion is definitely an exciting feature, if you have more questions, and need to be answered, recommend you click here to get more latest informations.
