Can you still craft faction items?

    I just recently rejoined factions and was curious if crafting faction items was still possible? I tried to make some stuff on my smith and I never got the option to make it a faction item. Was just curious thank you.

    You need to be in a smith shop in town. (maybe even a town your faction controls?)

    The items last for three weeks.

    I tell you right now, its a waste of resources :p



    If you want some real items that can make a good armor, use the donation chest in your faction HQ.

    idle passing thought: I wonder if that's how faction artis should be? Craftable by a faction crafter and lasting 3 weeks. Incentive to make sure your faction is in control so that your armor doesn't disappear before you can get replacements?
    Don't flame me, I've not really thought that through, so there's probably more holes in the idea than a colander.

    Weve been having a discussion on another boards about faction armour, after alot of examples and one person griping about how they are overpowered...i think the majority have actually concluded that they are indeed NOT overpowered.

    The suits are slightly easier to make without faction armour...but thats the benefit of factions, you have higher risk but your reward is being able to deck out a char quickly to begin pvp.

    I have faction and non faction chars, my best and favourite suit is non faction!

    That suit is using;

    Navery night eyes
    Slither (bought for 20mil!)
    tangle
    Conjurers
    Hear of lion
    Quiver
    Lights rampart
    Orny
    50EP ring with 25ish skill
    Pendant of the magi

    imbued legs arms and gloves.

    Basically it gives 70dci 13ish MR 50EP all 70's 100lrc 40lmc 25hpi 35ish mana increase.

    Faction armour would make that suit 16mr but thats not really that overpowered at all!!

    Since the planeswords, the non faction char doesnt even lose hit spell. Previously and non wrestle char gained hit spell on the weapon because they gained 25DCI on the glasses.

    Dexxers;

    Spirit
    Conjurers tali
    15ring
    15brace
    gladiators

    Thats the HCI sorted at 65

    quiver
    Fey
    Conjurers
    15ring
    15brace

    thats 60dci

    Faction chars can gain a little DI on the suit, the arties are cheaper thats all. Better resists do make the suit easier but with imbuing the resists should never be a problem.

    Conclusion...

    Faction arties are BETTER not OVERPOWERED

    No flamage here, Petra. I think this is a wonderful idea. Something along these lines might bring folks that disagree with the way faction arties handled now together.

    some shards there are massive guilds that have hundreds of characters.

    so they will have all the artys and the small group of 3 people wont have any.

    only thing i can think of about that right off the top of my head.

    course we can allways chime in with 'grrrr fight harder' but lets be honest.
    3 vs 50 your not gonna win the day.
    its just simple logistics.

    there should be a way for the smaller groups to get some perks as well.

    back when factions began the items where good to have and where used.

    you can craft then again, you just need to own the town and then go to the proper building.
    smith to the forge, tailor to the sewing shack, scribe to the mage hut, ect ect ect

    then you can craft the faction items.

    but like stated, with the faction artys and doom artys and recentlly the faction artys (not to mention ML and SA artys) faction crafted items are never seen.

    but back in the day before we even had runics when GM crafted items where the bomb the faction crafted stuff was nice to have and use.
