So Faction Armor will be blessed again?

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by MoonglowMerchant, Jun 25, 2008.

  1. That is how I'm reading these faction crafting changes.

    That would be really, really bad.

    Dunno really kind of makes people want to fight over towns and actually take part in factions no?
     
  5. The idea of faction blessed armor isn't inherently awful if you made it last a day or cost 10,000 silver per piece.

    However, with the prevalence of runic kits people will have uber blessed armor all the time and we will return to the days when you killed someone and maybe looted their jewels.

    It won't be faction versus faction. It will be just what it was before. There will be one faction and everyone will be in it.

    In fact, it will be worse because the faction waiting period is only three days now.

    This equates to insurance for everyone on Siege who is willing to join a faction.

    I don't care for insurance, that is why I play here.

    Actually it would be very easy for one guild to control, split in half and run two groups in different factions then move the towns between them when people try and join to make blessed armour you could easily make sure no one else gets any but then i'm sure that's more what you are worries about than everyone having blessed armour :)
     
  7. And if I have two characters in two different factions or four in four you are going to stop me how?

    You might want to keep thinking about this...

    Factions needs a revamp. People should join factions for the fun, not some stupid **** like blessings. People whined when they lost their faction blessings and claimed it "killed factions." I say factions might as well have been dead if faction bonuses, and horrible ones for Siege at that, were what was keeping it "alive."

    We can revamp factions and make it more fun so more people join, or we can revamp it and make everyone join...that would be fun too. But adding incentives like blessings to join factions is not the answer.
     
  9. I agree Mas, a revamp would be awesome.

    This is not a revamp, this is insurance for Siege.

    You'd better get on over to U Hall and let someone know...

    Another way then get faction commander on all four factions and set the tithe rate too 100% for all factions and just lower whatever faction doesn't have a big guild in it for a day for your own members to farm up their silver then return it too 100%, sure some people may have silver for a while but eventually it wil get used up then there could even be a market to sell people silver for a fairly unreasonable price :)
    If people ban together to stop you getting CL in one or even two of the factions then as long as you hold the towns the majority will either have to go without or actually fight you for control, fighting and political intrigue? Sounds not so bad either way !

    without trying to destroy everyones hope, i heard that factioncrafting on prodoshard is majorly ****ed up. id assume its more fixing that than a siegespecific thing.

    Have you tried stepping away from the guard zone? those blue tamers teeter off once you get a screen or two away.

    Oh wait, I forgot, you can't hack it here and need to go back to trammel. Well, good luck.
