Faction Incentive Program Details!
We have been working on several projects aimed at growing our populations and improving your play experience. One of these projects we have been developing is a Faction Incentive Program. The main focus of this program is to establish incentives on specific North American and European servers which have a faction in need of growth and support.
As the program progresses and the faction populations grow, we will investigate reducing or removing portions of the Faction Incentive Program as needed. At a later date, if we identify a different server or faction which could benefit from this program we will investigate opening the program on other servers.
Selected North American and European Servers
The North American and European Servers which are targeted as 'Selected Servers' for our Faction Incentive Program are as follows:
North American Selected Servers
|Asmodian Faction on Zikel|
|Asmodian Faction on Siel|
European Selected Servers
|Asmodian Faction on Spatalos [EN]|
|Asmodian Faction on Telemachus [EN]|
|Elyos Faction on Perento (Fort Siege Incentive Only)[EN]|
|Asmodian Faction on Thor [DE]|
|Asmodian Faction on Urtem (Fort Siege Incentive and Gateway Getaway Only)[FR]|
Balaur Abyss Takeover All North American and European Servers
As part of this exploration, when we push 2.5 Empyrean Calling to our live servers, we will be resetting the fortresses to Balaur owned as part of our push. We will investigate possibility of additional Balaur Fortress takeovers as we progress.
Creation Incentive Package Selected Servers
To assist in the creation and leveling of characters, characters of the targeted faction on selected servers, between level 10 to level 49, will receive (50) fifty Berdin's Amulets. Berdin's Amulets deliver a 50% additional EXP gain from hunting, gathering and crafting. The effect lasts one hour, with a one hour cooldown after activation. The Berdin's Amulet survey may only be accepted by one character per account on your server; however these amulets may be stored in your account warehouse and moved between your main and alternate characters.
Gateway Getaway Event Selected Servers
During this event, we will introduce special entrance gates for players of the targeted faction on selected servers. The gates will allow your characters to enter fortress instances despite fort ownership. This event is one we have run in the past for all of our servers, but will occur on a more frequent basis for the Faction Incentive program. For the targeted faction, on our selected servers, we will be running Gateway Getaway on a rotating schedule starting on June 8, 2011. We do anticipate running this event for all factions and all servers as a special event, separate from the Faction Incentive Program.
Fortress Siege Incentives Selected Servers
The Fortress Siege Incentives are a weekly reward which will reward players of the targeted faction, on selected servers, for the specific fortresses they capture on that server. Each successful capture of selected forts will add to the total weekly Siege reward.
The rewards will comprise of additional medals rewarded to all players of the targeted faction on the server, level 25 to level 55. Players will have a choice between gold and platinum medals from a weekly survey. The number of medals will be determined by the final tally of fortresses which the faction conquered during the week. The survey containing the reward tally will be delivered the following week.
Currently we have chosen to focus the Fortress Siege Incentive on conquering Upper Abyss Fortresses and the Divine Fortress. We may decide to expand or change our fortress selections as the Faction Incentive Program progresses.
Each Upper Abyss fortress is worth a Fortress Siege Incentive tally of (2) two gold medals or (2) two platinum medals. The Divine fortress is worth a Fortress Siege Incentive tally of (5) five gold medals or (5) platinum medals.
|Roah Fortress:||(2) two gold medals or (2) two platinum medals|
|Asteria Fortress:||(2) two gold medals or (2) two platinum medals|
|Kysis Fortress:||(2) two gold medals or (2) two platinum medals|
|Miren Fortress:||(2) two gold medals or (2) two platinum medals|
|Krotan Fortress:||(2) two gold medals or (2) two platinum medals|
|Divine Fortress:||(5) five gold medals or (5) platinum medals|
