Albion online fighting is divided into three categories: Guild vs. Guild, Open World PvP, and PvE.
Guild vs. Guild[edit | edit source]
Guild fights consist of 5 members of a guild fighting an opposing guild's group of 5 players on a territory in the open world. Additionally, city GVG fights may be 20 v 20. These fights are similar to MOBAs, but players can bring their own gear. Guild fights are to compete for areas of the open world.
Open World PvP[edit | edit source]
The experience of fighting other players varies on the type of zone fought in.
Blue, yellow, and red zones are governed by the King's law; reputation matters here.
Black zones are out of reach from the King and thus lawless; reputation does not matter here.
Blue[edit | edit source]
No PvP, this is a safe zone.
Yellow[edit | edit source]
Players can flag for PvP. Number of hostiles are shown on the map.
Flagged players can attack unflagged players, however doing so will incur reputation loss.
Unflagged players can attack flagged players with no reputation loss.
Players defeated in yellow zones will only be knocked down, receive a durability loss, and lose 10% of any stackable items provided they do not click die.
Red[edit | edit source]
Same as yellow zones but when players are defeated they die and drop all their items (full loot).
Black[edit | edit source]
All players are 'flagged' for PvP on default. Number of hostiles are not shown on the map.
No reputation loss in engaging in PvP.
Players defeated in black zones will die and drop all their items (full loot).
Duels[edit | edit source]
There is a dueling system that permits one to duel another, with or without a wager.
PvE[edit | edit source]
PvE consists of players banding together to fight AI mobs. These mobs can be found in the open world or within dungeons. The strength of the mobs and the reward that is dropped depends on the zone color.
