Are you a lone wolf? Want to venture into solo PvP but can’t seem to find the right build? Well, then you’ve come to the right place! In this article, we are going to discuss a few of the best solo builds for Albion Online.
The Bloodletter build
First up on the list is the Bloodletter’s build. This build consists of:
- Grandmaster’s Fiend Cowl
- Grandmaster’s Assassin Jacket
- Elder Soldier Boots
- Grandmaster’s Bloodletter
- Grandmaster’s Mistcaller
This is a great set for solo ganking. It allows you to easily outmaneuver the enemy, whether it’s another solo player or even a small group.
There are many ways to go about it, but I find that starting with the Assassin Jacket’s Ambush ability is the best way. This ability lets you go invisible and increases damage dealt. Once Ambush runs out of juice, you can then move on to dismounting the enemy by using W and then E. When you’ve successfully dismounted the enemy, then using Wanderlust will result in your enemy getting their ass kicked.
If for some reason you get caught in a corner or ambushed, then know that the Wanderlust double dash Bloodletter invis set is pretty much impossible to catch up to. That means you can escape quite easily! That is unless of course the enemy has the same set.
Together with the Pork Omelettes and Major Poison Potions, this build is definitely one to consider. You can see youtuber Renzgar Pangrim put it to work in the video below.
The Warbow build
Most Albion solo players stand by the Warbow build. It’s an incredible trustworthy build that doesn’t require artifact items, meaning it won’t make you go bankrupt. It’s a win-win situation. This build consists of:
- Grandmaster’s Mage Cowl
- Grandmaster’s Assassin Jacket
- Grandmaster’s Assassin Shoes
- Grandmaster’s Warbow
This build is very versatile, adapting to the player’s needs, which to me is a big plus. And the Warbow itself has a core spell (Q), the Poisoned Arrow, which deals a lot of damage, while still allowing you to move around quite easily.
Another advantage of this build is the W spell, Speed Shot, which deals damage and increases your movement speed by 33% for 5 seconds. And let’s face it, when you are PvPing on your own, high mobility is the difference between life and death.
As for potions and consumables, I’d recommend the Pork Omelettes and the Major Healing Potions.
The Claw Build
The Claw build… a mysterious build not made for everyone. It consists of:
- Expert’s Mage Cowl
- Expert’s Assassin Jacket
- Expert’s Soldier Boots
- Master’s Claws
I admit this build might come as a surprise to some, as it is more of a ganking build than a PvP build, but it certainly has its advantages, so just hear me out. The Master’s Claws look cool and actually work great. The Sunder Armor (A) deals up to 244 physical damage and reduces enemy armor for up to 8 seconds, reducing magic resistance by 12 points!
Then comes the Shadow Edge (W) with its 3-second stun and immediately pulling you behind the enemy. Last but not least, the Disembowel (E) skill cancels enemy spell casting and repeatedly deals 114 damage to the enemy for up to 10 hits.
And if you are wondering about the best consumables to use with this build, then I would say Pork Omelettes and Major Poison Potions. You can never go wrong with a Pork Omelette!
To be quite honest, one of my favorite solo PvP builds in Albion Online is the Warbow build, as I’m a long rage kinda gal, but I would definitely like to know your opinion on the subject -- let me know in the comments!
