greetings all. Firstly I have read the faction 101 post and understand that as of a while back faction rank may be bugged or broken on some players chars. I have joined in on factions and as of yet have not killed another opposing faction player. the faction that i have joined has an exceptional member that through kindness has taken pity on me and helped me in starting my journey of knowledge of PVP. I have asked him this same question, and while i do belive his answer, i feel that i should ask in forum for those like me. QUESTION: Is it possible to achieve a rank higher than 7 just by fighting and killing opposeing faction monsters? I have bought an arti but can not wear it because of my rank being too low. My mentor has told me that he is willing to get together with me and "give me" some of his rank in the "I honor thee" way, however he has already done so much for me and I could in no way pay him back for his kindness as it is, I would hate to bring down his points. I know others would jump at the idea, but taken into account, Ive been playing since the begining ( almost) and all of my skills have been raised the old fashion way, and mostly solo. I appreciate the fact that there are those in game that are willing to give up great amounts to help others, and i am proud to know them, i just hate being the one that takes the charity.
