Does what we kill right now influence the shard's - or our personal - alliance? For example, i've been killing solely shadow wisps where I can (except for a few defensive hits on ethie warriors). Is this what is meant by out alliegence? Will it be bioshock style - kill more than 1 good thing and you're a pillar of evil? Or is it a shard-wide effort that impacts the outcome with no bearing on the player? Or is this in reference to a faction choice? It would be nice to know.. I mean, I don't want to be a bad guy but these ethereal warriors are starting to really bug me!
