Faction changes

    In light of the HOC comments, I'm thinking what changes I'd like to see to factions:

    1. Let us use more traps, and more variety of traps, in both towns and strongholds.

    2. In the new strongholds, remove the crazy back-doors and other bugs that allow people to sneak past the entrances - I'm thinking of the notch on the north side of the minax base that can be used to pop inside using the energy field - log out - log in trick. Same for the front entrance of LB's castle and the SL crypts.

    3. Definitely move strongholds away from towns.

    4. Make the faction guards a bit smarter and tougher. Right now, any thief with a shuriken can kill them all. They never try to cure.

    5. Make the stat loss timer decrease by 2 minutes for every town held by your faction. Stat loss takes too long, and this would add incentive to hold towns.

    6. Make stat loss decay while your character is logged out. It's really annoying to log back in 2 days later to find yourself still in statloss.

    7. Make the lower faction prices only available to members of that faction.

    8. Make any faction monster, anywhere (ilsh, SA, etc) orange so it can drop silver etc.

    9. Expand the ranks of faction monsters. For example, SL should be all demons and undead, Minax should be all humanoids and ratmen, TB should be all fey critters and the silver serpents, COM should be all spell casters, mages (such as evil mage lords), wisps, perhaps elementals. Many of the champ spawn bosses should be similarly faction aligned.

    10. On Siege, make faction armor, weapons, etc decay quickly (for example give it only 10 durability, and not POF'able).

    11. We should be able to conjure faction monsters from our faction to help defend the base. They should have extra longevity while in the base (say 10 minutes). Perhaps costing silver.

    12. Allow the town faction silver to be easily transferred to the commanding lord, and vice versa.

    just a few ideas.

    Flame on!

    Maybe Siege Perilous will finally be able to use the Castle in Britain.

    Oh my.... SP finally corrupted me. *Runs* :)

    That would be pretty cool. I would throw a party in the Castle to celebrate!

    Lol, I'll be there! Of course, it's not a proper SP party until raided.

    I remember even raiding the "girls night out" and stealing all their nifty pink boxes!

    Maybe we could fix all of those pesky mouse holes...

    I dont disagree as such, a few of the things i do totally disagree with.

    Expanding the faction monsters is good in principal but could easily be exploited.

    If all demons are SL alligned, then SL have one hell of an easy spawn, which also happens to yield the best replica. Basically any spawn with alligned creatures would make it too easy. Also what would happen with the rat men and silver serps at a coon spawn?? Would they attack each other being opposite allignment? That would be hella funny!

    I do disagree, for the most part, with allowing silver farming on any facet.

    I dont farm silver, i farm the people farming silver when i need it. As such, unless your going to expand faction fighting to all facets, i dont want to see this.

    Siege maybe, i could see it working. you already have faction fighting on all facets so i could see no probs with that.

    If you want to have siege items decay quickly i would say drop them to 100. The faction POF knocks 50durability of them as far as i remember. The problem with increasing the decay rate is that it would probably spill over onto prodo...not that i would mind this tbh.

    I would have thought you, as siege players, would like to see the name removed from the faction arties enabling anyone...in factions of course, to wear them?

    Be sure to check the faction forums... There are some interesting discussions going on there as well. *shameless plug*

    Would love to see the efield bugs fixed. But right now they need to do something about the guards in the towns bs when you heal a guildmate that you get gwacked. Also still cant place traps in towns. Can vendors and breeders be placed yet?
