    I've noticed a sharp increase in blue character interference in faction business. For example, blue tamers bringing their dragons in to kill faction town guards, allowing their friends in factions to have free run over a controlled town.

    I'm not one to whine, but shouldn't faction NPCs appear as "yellow" or unattackable to non-faction characters?

    There are alot of blues in factions, so being unable to attack the non-faction blues without going red or taking a count is unfair when they can attack your faction NPCs.

    If you don't make them "yellow", could you at least make it so that when a non-faction blue attacks the NPC, they are flagged orange or grey to everyone in that faction?

    Just a thought, I may be out of line to think this.

    The tamer should be flagging grey for attacking blue npc. Are you saying they don't?

    These were problems before the patch too in Mag. The devs just don't give a ****.

    This has always been annoying in factions especially now with no guard zones during the invasion. Even worse at SL or minax. It's bad enough that even newbs are trying to attack my blue in brit fel lol. They died rather quickly though. Once this **** event is over the gz needs to be recovered. I think moving the base zones at SL and Minax was an improvement though.

    Yeah I thought that too, Flutter. Figured it would be common sense, but I watched a tamer attack faction guards and then take off and invis. I didn't see if they went gray, but it's not cool that a non-faction member can just two-bite a guard with their uber pet and invis and poof the pet after the guard is dead.

    Just seems off to me, and I have two tamers and two dragons. I think you should only be able to attack those guards if you're in factions.

    I tried it yesterday and definitely went grey.
