Since the release date of Albion Online was released, there have been a lot of changes and updates in game in the past few weeks. In addition to the Revamped Hellgates and Outlands Improvements, the developers announced new feature – the Black Market.
Black Market is one of the highlights of Hector’s most prominent features. According to the official notes, Hector is the final update before the developers launch Albion Online on July 17, 2017.
The Black Market is a new merchant NPC in Caerleon, who buys items from crafters and redistributes them to the mobs and chests of Albion. The Black Market is unlike your typical NPC merchant – His demand for items is based on how many mobs are killed across the world. This new feature ensures cool drops in PvE, while not taking away from the player-driven economy.
There are several benefits in the new feature. The first one is that it allows us to add cool drops to the PvE of Albion Online, without taking away from the player-driven economy. All equipment is once again player-crafted! Then, the Black Market merchant can also be used as a proper item-sink for lower Tier items as it’s shady. Finally, we can remove Essences from refining and get rid of refined resources as a drop from Hellgates and chests.
