Find out how to hire laborers on your personal island and what they can do for you!


Laborers are a major feature in one of Albion Online's core mechanics, private islands. Figuring out how to utilize laborers can be a difficult task for new players, which is why I'm here to explain them for you! Listed below are all of the gathering and refining laborers that you can hire to help you on your journey.

Laborers will give you a journal which they need you to fill for them. Filling the journal can be done by doing the required action depending on the type of laborer you have hired. You can find a list of laborers, how to fill their journals and what they will reward you with below.
