    First off - thanks to Dev I am BACK on Legends! :D

    how are factions now and are there any active guilds doing factions for the upcoming publish? I wasnt planning on coming back to pvp, however, being the artie wh*re that I am :blushing: I am interested in joining a guild on my red alt necro/mage for some faction fun.

    Let me know if anyone is planning on doing some factions and if there is room for me :)

    Factions have kinda been dead on this shard lately. I was in one a while ago and it was really fun, but all of a sudden it just kinda died. Hopefully the new content they are adding to factions will start it back up again, at least for a little while. :)

    I just talk about factions - I don't actually play in them :)

    The importation question to me is: if you _were_ in a faction, which would it be? Which appeals to the philosophy of your characters?

    !OF! "MIGHT" make a come back, and knock out that POS of a guild NIX again. Only reason we left factions last time was....a month and half of NIX not raiding or even really trying!

    But, as of right now NIX is the only active faction guild on the shard.

    for those of us that may be confused about where our loyalties should lie, there's this guide to factions

    The Faction System - Felucca Facet
    When Minax took over Lord British's realm, she started a rift, both among her followers, and among the followers of Lord British. Both sides split into two different groups, with different ideals, and war ensued among all 4 sides.

    The rebellion began in Moonglow, where the council of Mages decided that Lord British was no longer fit to rule Britannia. He'd not only failed to protect his lands from the invading hordes, but many of his own people had abandoned him and fled to the side of darkness, taking post with one of the factions of evil.

    British's loyal followers tried to crush the rumors quickly that Moonglow was planning on seceding from the throne's grasp, but this only furthered their cause, making those who died or were jailed martyrs for the cause of the mages. The Council of Mages now believes that what Britannia needs is a new leader: one who can not only lead Britannia against Minax, but who can also keep peace once it's restored. To this end, they have begun preparations to do something drastic.

    Though they've never had to do this themselves, they are the keepers of the arcane knowledge, and they have prepared many notes and items which they will need in their quest. They oppose Minax, and Lord British, and as such, are not safe from danger in either company.

    Meanwhile, Minax has something of a rebellion herself occurring. Strangely enough, from within her own rank and file, there are those who are calling for the Shadow Lords to be released from the Abyss to take their rightful place as the rulers of the dark land. While her minions are grateful to Minax for allowing them the opportunity to strike terror at Lord British, they feel she is only useful as a magical tool, and is not powerful enough to lead them against Lord British for an extended period of time. To this end they have begun preparations to do something drastic of their own; call for the Shadow Lords.

    Her minions are now split amongst those who would follow her, and those who wish to see her dethroned. Infighting is the only thing thus far that is keeping Minax from working out a way to breach the virtue spell that protects Lord British and his followers.

    The result was four different factions:

    Minax
    True Britannians
    Shadow Lords
    Council of Mages

    All factions are aggressive towards each other, meaning each faction member can be attacked freely by members of another faction.


    now I had no idea about all of this, and if some of you who fought during the upheaval could give some insight, that would be much appreciated

    and I'm thinking that a protective virtue spell sounds like a very cozy thing, indeed
