    From a non-faction stand point, this is sickening!!!!!

    As a non-factioner I find it appalling that you all get to have that crap free (meaning farming AFK like at least 50% of you do) while the rest of the shard has to actually EARN a doom arti or some such item.

    With all the artis and extra bonuses, not even a tamer with 2 pets has a chance going against 1 arti'd out faction person anymore.

    Tamers had a unfair advantage and you all raise holy hell (care to notice you all dont cry about them anymore and there Super Dragons, esp now that they nerfed their power and speed, but your all crying daily about unbalanced arti's)... But NOW that you all have the totally reverse unfair advantage going on, your all silent... OR in this case you cry because youll have to go out and wimply earn your jealously held unfair advantage.

    Do me and many others a favor.. all you people crying for your stuff back... Look at it all as one use items, go EARN your toys, and STOP crying when you HAVE to earn a NEW set.... Jeez. Not one guys moaning for regs and pots back... NNNNNOOOOOOOOOooooo. Just the unfair toys... Sheesh.
    And crying that if I want the same toys then I should go join factions is NOT a viable reason. Esp when the same factioners can use those toys against a NON faction person. In my opinion, the second a factioner flags to a non factioner, then ALL bonus on ALL faction items should be voided during that fight.

    And thats my two cents. TY

    I could care less if they take the faction items away or they keep them but i'd have to agree if you do think its unfair join factions and use the gear.... Not much differnce of being faction and non faction... your just not safe in town is all =\

    Wow, I didnt think this type of person played on Siege.

    If the items are so great and offer nothing but unfair advantages why not wear them???

    Could it be they also have a down side???

    Yet you fail to see that or you just ignore it so you can post.

    I used to love the crying back with the old good vs evil powers days. This is nothing new to Siege. Those who enjoy the protection of not being forced to PvP, usually are the loudest of them...la

    You wish it was *fixed*!

    Soap Bubble is wrong about the Faction Gear...that is not the real problem.
    The real problem is that a solo player joining Factions would be a mistake.
    The solo players activities will not change just because he joins Factions.
    The extra risk at towns is not worth it unless he joins a guild or has support
    from a large group. You join Factions to do PvPing.
    If the solo player did that then he/she would not be a solo player.
    True enough...the groups will always have the advantage over the solo player.

    So, live with what you do ... la

    The silver farmers are annoying... as is any gain while AFK.

    What I do is take the silver from them to make all their "effort" in vain.

    But, I cannot be everywhere at once, so they still gain.

    Fortunately this is Siege, and there is no item insurance, just imagine how bad things are on prodo shards right now... gankers running around with elite insured gear that they would have had to pay 60 million or more for otherwise.

    i agree but also disagree........

    If everyone used these arties how would it be any differnet then everyone not using any arties....

    Its pretty much giving everyone the same mods if there willing to put the time into get the silver....

    the arties are allowing different templates to be played now which i kinda enjoy so i dont know it has its ups and downs i guess

    It's the giving part... and these faction arties are pretty much just being handed out without players having to put any real effort into getting them...

    I wont bother to fight a faction member now because I know he is geared up with cheap garbage that I dont even want.

    Ok heres your options bob:
    1) Join factions
    2) Stay in the guardzone/house & run for the hills when you see a factioneer
    3) Just stop logging on and turn your account off

    I pulled a 3/0 with 14hci the other night... I was like, damn, that was close.
     
  20. I agree that the faction gear has no place on Siege. However, it does NOT come EASY! If it did, why doesn't everyone join factions and use it? It's because there are inherent risk of of no GZ and Stat when in factions.

    Also, I love the afk farmers! I have enough silver to last me for some time and I got most of it by farming afk farmers. I've noticed that because of this, very few people farm afk now.

    I agree faction items need to go but for different reasons.

    Just join faction to me it sounds more like you only see it as unfair because you or your guild is unwilling to join them I'm guess for death by pvp reasons.

    cursed arties dropped
    @ mace : you're not being forced into anything obviously, if you don't want to join factions then don't. just quit crying because factions has something that the general population doesn't.

    Its unfair that you have a Guard Zone..that should not be here on SP!. "BUT I AM A PVM AND DONT PVP". Blah spare me the the pain on my eyes and ears. You want to call SAFTEY!..... GO BACK TO TRAMMEL!. Then you will not lose your mongbat gear and complain about PVP and Factions being not fair to you.

    He's got a point. Either you will conform to one, single aspect of the game or you shouldn't play at all.

    Faction arties don't bother me insofar as faction people don't attack me. Unfortunately, they're the only ones who attack me. This wasn't a problem (and good for the odd fencing gain :p) before the game become much more, and haneously so, itemized.

    Not everyone wants to play factions. Unfortunately, everyone must play with factioned people. This little truth has much more effect on the faction pk'ers themselves: They must wonder who won the fight -- they or their equipment.

    This has gotten to the 'going round in circles' stage. Let's call a halt
