    kill ophidians and your bane should rise I think its a 1to 3 ratio or something like that so for every ophidian you kill their rating will drop by 3 and bane will raise by one

    No, if i kill ophidian bane chosen and meer doesn't raise.
    But the problem is that the bane are also enemy.
    Storm, i kill only the ophidian.
    If i understand well more kill ophidian and the bane become neutral and then friend?
    I have to kill many many ophidians to resolve my problem?
    And the -45 what become?

    are you killing the ophidians in t2a ? not even sure they still there but the ones in between the bane strong hold and the ophidian strong hold so if you kill 45 ophidians your bane should be 0 and ophidians will drop another 135 or so

    The ophidian side was turned off when that event ended. Having loyalty with them is meaningless, contrary to what was originally announced.

    The only way to currently raise loyalty with the Bane is to go kill Meer. However, you can raise loyalty with the Meer AND the Ophidians by killing the Bane.


    This 'event' has been stalled now for two+ months.

    I believe killing Meer also drops your kharma so that may present her another problem

    Obiouvsly. In the ophidian lair.
    Now i've reached -441 for the ophidians but the bane chosen remain enemy :(
    -441 against -45.
    Bane chosen are in Spiritually, Ilshenar and Ophidian are in T2, Ophidian lair.
    Is it right?

    It would have been right except the ophidian bane is apparently off so ilshenar and killing meer is your best bet just watch karma

    Originally, yes, the Ophidians that would gain you loyalty with the Bane were around the lair in T2A and along the road. But thats been off now for quite a while. You will have to kill Meer to gain Bane loyalty, there is no other choice.

    Prepare to watch your karma drop like a rock...

    bane will attack till you are + with them
    each meer will give you +1 with bane for each meer you kill

    Any negative number makes you an enemy.

    0-500 = neutral
    501-1999 = Sympathizer
    2000+ = Friend

    You have to be a friend to get the blackrock stew quest.

    Just so I understand all this..

    > The ophidian side was turned off when that event ended - loyalty with them is meaningless

    When did it end? Event Ophids are still in t2a, was just there marking a Ton of runes.
    The loyality lets me go there & strip mine to see what's there(probably my once only ever chance), + buy potions

    You can still gain favor (+points) w/ Ophids, & meer, but not bane?
    You Can only gain negative points w/ bane?

    why does only killing meer give +points for bane - cause they screwed the coding when they moved bane?

    Ah, they fixed it then. After the Bane/Ophidian war abruptly ended the Opidians were agressive to their friends, apparently that has been fixed.

    Potions are the only things that loyalty with them will provide, and honestly, neither potion is that exciting.

    Killing Ophidians nets you no points with the Bane.

    Killing Meer does gain you loyalty with the Bane.

    Killing Bane gains you loyalty with the Ohphidians AND the Meer.


    Story-wise, the Bane are supposedly attacking the Meer in revenge for the Plague of Despair in Yew and because the Meer are carrying power crystals. There should be a stepped fontline war system between the two as in T2A (since new rewards DO exist: Feline's Grace & Gift of the Eternal), however, it has yet to be turned on.

    This is why most people ignore the Bane as irrelevent since Mythic hasn't bothered to DO anything tangible with them.

    Well, i have a problem. I don't want to be enemy of Meer.
    Now iƬve killed some for having an alliance with the bane.
    But is it a good idea?
    It's a good choise bane alliance?
    Or is better kill them for having Meer and Ophidian alliance?
    I'm a little confused :(

    So far, it seems to be the bane against the rest. You have a choice of which side to support (bane - or ophidian/meer) but you can not be friends with both sides unless you choose different sides with different characters.

    As to which side is good - or will give the most benefits, that is unknown at this time.

    From my point of view - the bane are red so it's those I kill.

    Meer = Montagues

    You = Mercutio

    You need choose.

    .

    Ok, now I was killed the Meer, that I normally like. If noone know the benefit of the alliance with every race, i begin to kill banes, that i don't like very much :)
    After some indecisions this is my choice :)
