Gameplay Features of Factions Explained
Martial artists must choose a faction to Buy Blade And Soul Gold align themselves with early in their story. We’ll be going over some of the core gameplay features that being in a faction provides.
PvP & You
The Cerulean Order and the Crimson Legion are rivals in the world of Blade & Soul, even though they share a common cause. When you first join a faction, you’ll be rewarded with a faction costume. Equipping this costume will notify other players—and members of the factions—that you’re ready to fight. Putting on a faction costume not only flags you for PvP against members of the opposing faction, but also opens up daily faction quests and faction-specific Windstride ports (provided you’ve activated them).
World PvP Rewards
Defeating an opposing faction member within a valid level range provides you with temporary PvP currency known as Prestige Points. If you defeat a player of the opposing faction, you are also able to steal their accumulated Prestige points. But be careful – they can do the same back to you! Prestige is able to be traded for reputation within your faction, as well as for items and other rewards.
You start at Faction Rank 10, and through acquiring reputation, will progress all the way up to Rank 1. The maximum amount of Prestige Points you can collect increases as your Faction Rank increases. You can swap factions at any point, but if you do you’ll lose all reputation you’ve gained, and you’ll have to start over from Faction Rank 10 if you ever decide to swap back.
