  2. Stratics is pleased to introduce a community Article Management System (AMS) to the forums! AMS allows users to contribute articles about profession templates, houses, pvp, or a variety of other topics. This is a great way to showcase your ideas that require more space than a typical thread. Our staff can also feature articles and promote threads into articles (when appropriate). We are pretty excited about this feature and hope you will be too. It will allow the community another way to express themselves and contribute to the growth of the game and community! For information on how to submit an article, read this article.
  3. We've put our heads together to simplify the Rules of Conduct (ROC) from 23 items down to 8. We hope that the new ROC will be more intuitive and easier to remember. This should also help us to improve our moderation by focusing on fewer items. We are always striving to make Stratics better and to encourage communication and participation. We think that you'll be happy for this improvement. Thanks for being here.

Why do faction artifacts have so much durability?

    The champion spawn artifacts that came out a couple months ago are a lot more rare yet have less durability (150). I think that faction artifacts should be more disposable so that you aren't set forever when getting one. Perhaps 100 durability would be better. The most expensive items only cost 5,000 silver which is not at all difficult to get. Also if you can use powder of fortification on them it should be disallowed.

    So a faction artifact will last ~3 months with casual play (repair every 2-3 days). Or it will last about a month with heavy usage (repair 1-2 times per day).

    ummm, have you seen those brave factioneers that WORK the spawns? Their gear breaks like every day. Their faction gear still damaged very quickly and replaced. I have a scroll farming char that replaces a faction arti every 2-3 days of playing from perma wear and tear.

    If you want to neglect your armor that is your choice.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
