Albion streamer FlaccidBaron is no stranger to creative gameplay, often trying out new builds and playstyles in his videos. (You can read our Streamer Spotlight on him here [https://albiononline.com/en/news/streamer-spotlight-flaccidbaron]). Recently, he launched a new project: to make a billion silver in Albion Online using a wide variety of tactics, and to document the process for his viewers.
What gave you the idea for this series?
A lot of other similar games have story-driven content. I feel like Albion videos are mostly PvP montages, so I wanted to bring more of a story-based series to the game – the story of how I built my way up to being a very rich Albionian.
What has the community reaction been like?
Very positive. I get private messages ingame and on Discord all the time asking "when is the next episode". So I know I’m doing something right.
Has this series given you experience with new features you hadn't tried yet? I know Faction Transport Missions were fairly new to you.
Yes many. There are so many diverse ways to make money in the game. When people ask "what's the best way to make money?" I can’t really answer that. I can give them suggestions on what to try, but in the end there are so many good methods it's hard to pick just one.
Any unconventional money-making ideas you've discovered along the way?
My audience is always pitching new ideas to me. Some are a bit weird but surprisingly work. One method I never thought would work was buying runes in bulk and enchanting gear, then selling it for a huge profit. I guess some people pay for the convenience of not having to enchant items themselves.
What are your current favorite builds?
The thing I love most about Albion is the variety of builds and the ease of switching between them. So this answer changes almost every week. Currently, however, I'm really in love with the Bloodletter. It has so much damage potential while also being able to make a quick getaway if you need to.
Any ideas for future streaming series along the lines of this one?
As soon as I finish this series and finally become a billionaire, I feel like the obvious next step is to see how quickly I can get back to zero. Full T8.3 solo ganking maybe?
