There is no way to gain faction with TFSTC:Supply Division by adventuring, that I am aware of.

<p>Nonono!  Don't pull that out of context!  That was me grumping at folks in the beta who were pestering me in tells in the beta, while I was fact-checking some stuff yesterday.</p><p>Sowwy ... wet weather + probable arthritis + the usual site stress = grumpy 'Mum</p><p>... but I've got my RPoD!  And it has a "Doom" effect on it!  {attempts to bounce, winces as knee gives out again}</p>

<p>I'll be tacking stuff onto this preview at random intervals, and not always announcing it.  However, this one deserves announcing.</p><p>We've got up <a href="http://eq2.eqtraders.com/articles/article_page.php?article=g285&menustr=070000000000">images of the crafted (any primary crafting class) faction furniture</a> up now!</p>

<p>I've not been posting about all the updates to this preview, but there have been quite a few of them!</p><p>There is just SO much stuff for crafters that it can be overwhelming, so I've also put together a <a href="http://eq2.eqtraders.com/articles/article_page.php?article=g288" target="_blank">TSO Crafting Quick Reference Guide</a> with lots of handy links.</p>
