    I have a factions newbie question. If I have characters on the same account, but on different shards, do they have to be in the same faction?

    For example, on the same account could I have a TB character on Atlantic, and say a MIN character on Catskills?

    Thanks!

    I *think* it's possible, but I only ever testet it with chars on Drachenfels and Siege. Maybe siege is special in that way...

    Any drawbacks of doing that? The only issue I can think of would be issues with shard transfers.

    If you transfer you lose all guild/faction affiliation, so there are no issues.

    Is there a cool down for transfers? Or can I transfer a char and the transfer right back to the 3 day wating period for changing the faction.

    Seems like a waste of money.. but there are no transfer limitations that are normally in effect to my knowledge.
