Faction arties question

    I've just re-activated my account and noticed that there are new factions arties. My question is, do you need the actual artifact first in order for you to obtain the additional stats when you acquire rank/silver for them? For instance, do i need a Crimson Cincture artifact when i reach the rank and enough silver to purchase? Or can i basically get to rank 10 naked with x amount of silver and get all those arties? Any light shed would be appreciated. thnx

    Nope. You purchase the items with silver in your faction base. There will be a chest inside your base where the arties can be purchased. You "donate" whatever amount of silver you wish, and then you may choose the artifact(s) that you wish, along with a host of other useful item above and beyond the arties.

    bump plz. Im deciding whether to buy my Spirit of the totem and Primer talisman. But if i dont need to because once i reached high enough in rank and enough silver, i can just purchase it?

    You can buy the item at any time and at any rank just as long as you have donated enough silver. You just can't equip the item until you have reached the required rank. For example, I join factions today and donate 10K silver. If I decide to purchase the Kasa (1K) and the orni (5K), I will be able to wear the Kasa right away since I'm rank 1 at the time I joined factions, but I would not be able to wear the orni. Depending on faction and shard, you might need as few as a couple points to reach rank 10 or it could be several 100 points, but eitherway just for this example lets say it only takes 10 points to reach rank 10, so you have a guildmate give you 12 of their points. You still will not be able to wear the orni until the system updates the faction rankings.
