    The next publish won't go out to Test Center until early next week, but we wanted to give you some goodies to drool over!
    Factions

    In order to promote accessibility and invigorate Factions, we’ve made several changes and fixed some bugs. Additionally, Factions will play an important role in the Warriors of Destiny plot arc.

    Faction size limit and load balancer removed: individual factions can grow to any size. Previously capped at 200.

    Multiple characters from the same account may join the same faction

    An account cannot have characters in different factions on the same shard

    Removed 30 day character age requirement

    “Young” players cannot join factions

    “Young” players will be removed from guilds that join factions

    One vote in faction elections per account

    Only one character per account may run in the elections

    Quit time reduced from 7 days to 3 days

    Resolved issues with ghosts using stairs


    Spring Cleaning 2008

    Ah, how time flies. Spring has come once again to Britannia, but the sweet smell of blossoming flowers outside our homes can’t belie the memories of battles fought long so very long ago.

    Why in the world is Invalis';s Burchete on the list of treadeinable items? Should you really be offering a trade-in on an item rare enough that there are maybe one or two per shard (if we're lucky)?

    And, conversely, why isn't the daemon's blood from Magincia on the list?

    Yeah those rare'r..?? items are definatly NOT worth trading in for what's being offered at the current time.

    Inavlis Burchette's were SOOOOO rare like 1-2 per shard??? To trade in for a pair of night site earrings is just wrong.

    Deamon Blood should be on there, that was so easy to get.

    The list is awesome imo. nothing too overpowering, some deco items....very nice. Of course the greedy item-hungry people will disagree as their 400 billion gold suits are just NOT enough and they need more leet gear..*sighs*

    Just what a slacker would say....


    I like the earrings idea but the rewards seem a tad lackluster. Beggars can't be chooser though.

    I noticed that "Threads of Fate/Life" and "Cloaks of Corruption" weren't on the list of turn-ins. I wonder if that was an oversight, or do they have an as yet unrevealed purpose?
