The new faction system is currently in Phase One. The following updates have been made:
Players may obtain Faction Points through Faction Monster Kills, Player Kills, and Faction Spawn Challenges. View your current faction points by saying 'showscore' in game or on page three of the [mystats gump.
Players will receive 50 Faction Points for slaying specific Faction Monster types relative to the opposing factions. This applies to any of the specific monsters in their natural Felucca locations, inside the Faction Dungeon, and during Champion Spawns in Felucca only. The following table identifies each Faction's specific Monster type.
|FACTION MONSTER TYPES|
|Council of Mages||Lich Lords|
|True Britannians||Ophidian Avengers|
Players will receive points for inflicting the killing blow to an opposing faction member. The points received (and lost) are scaled per the rank of the slain faction member. The exact amount gained by the killer is lost from their victim. These numbers are as follows:
|POINTS PER PLAYER KILL|
Players may now issue Faction Spawn Challenges at any Felucca Champion Spawn. A player must have a minimum of 2,000 Faction Points and must stand at the Champion Altar and say “I wish to issue a faction challenge” and target the altar's idol. This action will consume both Faction Points and Valor, as well as broadcasting a message to all faction members that a challenge has been issued. Defeating the Champion at the end of the Faction Challenge will award faction points to all of whom gained looting rights. The amount of points awarded will scale with the difficulty of the spawn. The champion will also spawn both Silver and Gold piles upon their death.
The Faction Rankings have been updated. See the chart below for the point requirements for each rank and the corresponding title.
