    They were meant to be a way to get inside the base during a siege. They are not meant as an emergency escape key during fights.

    So you all think it is okay to be virtually invulnerable to death as long as you have a faction rune?

    You gotta love how Lynk thinks.. Or doesnt at all.

    There is a problem on one shard.. so what does he do.. make sure all the shards know that there is a way to exploit something so everyone can use it.. So now.. all shards are using the same ****ty exploit!

    YEAH!

    And I don't think the runes are working the way they were intended.. as is most of the other **** implemented these days. And yes they should remove them, along with half of the other garbage that is useless or broken in factions.. and they may as well remove the devs too.. those guys suck.

    It's not bypassing the filter if the filter doesn't filter it anyways. Idiot.

    IMO.. The faction runes are perfect how they are. You can use them once every 30 minutes.. They also save you from really pathetic ganks with 20 to 1 odds. They give the people who go on the field by themselves a better chance of survival.

    an escape route once every 30 mins while outside of dungeons or t2a is hardly an over powered thing. It is barely better than a 4/6 sacred journey macro....

    They weren't meant to be used this way and that is a totally lame limp-**** tactic. They should be removed.

    You're right.. you should have to be actively participating in raiding and defending of sigils...The **** bags that join factions and hide in trammel 24/7 should be taken out back and shot.. imo..
