View Full Version : Freeport Faction Question

12-09-2004, 01:58 AM
<DIV>Hi everyone,</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I am in a guild and I am a patron and wanting to do writs to build both my personal status and help the guild get stronger.  I got a writ from the guy who represents Dismal Rage faction and when completed all the other city factions went down and that faction went up.  I have been told that if I keep doing this I will be able to buy from the status merchant tied to the Dismal Rage but not the other merchants because of the constant faction hits.  </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>So anyway, I was just wondering what others had decided to do about this?  I have no clue if different status vendors offer different goods although someone has speculated that the Dismal Rage vendor will have more clerical type gear, the Freeport Militia vendor will have more fighter type stuff etc.  Can anyone confirm this?  If it is true, since we are basically unholy warriors, which would you go with?  Would you do writs to build status with the Dismal Rage or Freeport Militia since the DR tends to satisfy our evil unholy clerical/warrior persona and the FM tends to cater to our fighter side?</DIV>

You can only pick one, so go with whatever fits the theme of your character.I, of course, support only the Dismal Rage.

I haven't seen a good answer yet. Some would say that the guild should pick one (might want to go search the Guild forum here).IIRC, none of the pre-level-20 writs gave faction hits? Or did I miss a message? Seems like I've only started seeing faction hits once you get past the first writ giver in each location (e.g. when the ratonga mage sends you to talk to a 2nd NPC in the Academy).

<DIV>Since my darkelf lady Shadowknight has quite fallen in love with Captain Darrius - well its natural that she follows the Militia faction. :smileywink:</DIV>

I myself follow the freeport militia. Forget that religious junk of the dismal rage; Nothing teaches people like a good shield bash to the forehead.

i would think SK would be better off supporting the Militia, but who knows.

<DIV>Gentlemen, gentlemen...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If you read through the descriptions of each faction you will see that crusaders and priests "belong" to Dismal rage. Dismal rage is a perverted kind of church, crusaders you know..religious warriors.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Makes sense, no ?</DIV>

Dismal Rage looks like Chain to me.Plus all the guards I see (well the ones I pay attention to) are all wearing Plate.My guess is kindly faction gets you heavy armor while warmly give vanguard.

<DIV>Look at the armor you can buy from them it is all heavy armor, militia is chain .</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Dunnott</DIV> <DIV>SK of Malicious Legion (Guk)</DIV>

Stands to reason the rewards for Warmly is more likely medium since priests class wear med/light (except inquisators who wear heavy).Guess well know for sure when someone finally reaches that faction and gives out the info.
