    Do the DEVs just smash their faces across the keyboard as they write their code????????????????

    Needless to say, I've found several problems with the new faction arties here on Siege:

    1) Do not buy more then your suit, for you cannot put in a chest or even the character bound's bank box.

    2) When I killed myself with other char, the FACTION ARTIES that I was wearing upon death, are blessed and stayed with me when I rezzed, the rest of the faction arties I'm stuck with (because I didn't know I couldn't put in chest/bank box), were lootable.

    3) When you loot said arties that AREN'T being worn, they will now be your problem and can't drop them. BUT, you can indeed equip other factioners' faction arties. Which wasn't intended.


    Anyone else find problems? GG Devs!

    P.s. I didn't see any invasion yet, so we're assuming we have to wait for Minax's time to be up and recorrupt for this event to start? Checked all towns..

    1 and 2 are as intended from what I have read. I am not sure about 3...

    I could be wrong, but the problem that you had in #2 could be stopped if you had tried to wear the item. I can't seem to find the thread where some one tested this.

    Mmmm 1) may be intended, but if they truly meant for any faction item to be blessed like that on Siege, fail.

    =D

    Hmm, so not only are they easy to get and powerful. They are blessed as well?

    Did I get that right?

    So far, the faction arties that are equipped upon death, are blessed. Mind you, I only tested this via killing my char. with guilded faction member. Someone care to test this theory by being killed by opposite faction? Let me know how it goes.

    I believe I read that the items would NOT be blessed. . . and freely lootable. [But just unwearable by anyone other than the purchaser]

    *runs off to find quote*

    I'll edit later!

    Edit: From October 10, 2008 FoF

    Yay testing.

    They seriously ****ed up.
    Bo helped test this. Killed himself and the items were not on his body for me to loot, he rezed and there they were.
    Then he died to my dog, again no faction armor for me and WHOOPS! The damn things are blessed.

    Yee haw...

    Well, I bet we'll see more people in factions because of this?

    Can anyone give a list of the rank 1 items available? :)

    Edit: Just make the damn things lootable and allow anyone to wear them as long as they have the proper faction rank.

    Edit edit: wearable ONLY if in factions [shouldn't have to say this, but thought I should remind them... :|]

    No offense but with everyone running around in Blessed gear wouldn't it be more enjoyable to just play Atlantic or something where there are thousands of people and a more level playing field??

    From Draconi

    This has been fixed wholesale, and will be published out soon.

    What we've done is stripped out the no-drop, no-loot rules on the faction equippables, and replaced it with the simple ownership system we talked about previously.

    When you buy a faction item, it will bind to that character. You can trade it, drop it, trash it if you want, but it will only be equippable by the original owner.

    This will fix all existing faction items retroactively.

    If this was to stay permanent i will be quiting forthright. There is no point in fighting a bunch of piece of **** worthless cheaters if you can't even loot their stuff.
