    If you dye it evil, hero faction can't use it, so it is easier to get such items back in general.

    Assuming you mean hero/evil dye?

    Before the faction arties, you could dye your equipment and then the opposing factioners could not use it. You can still do it. . .but if someone's in all faction arties then it doesn't really matter except for color as no one else can use the equipment anyway.

    For example, you're in True Brits; you hero dye your Heart of the Lion, Minax kills you, they can't use it because it's hero dyed.

    not only could the opposing faction not use it, but neither could anyone who wasn't in factions.

    Which is kinda what miffs me about all the crying Siegers do about the faction arties... it's almost the same thing except its automatic.

    The siege crying you speak of is about the items in general, they dont belong here and we want them gone forever.

    I think the biggest issue is that they are more powerful than the standard issue doom versions. So you cant even make the same suit out of Reg arties. They are easier to obtain, but when factions is booming, the risk of farming is much higher.

    IF THEY are so overpowered WHY isnt everyone wearing them stop crying about it and just use them


    Everyone has the ability to use them if your not wearing faction armor its because your not willing to take the risk that goes along with factions
