Combat Related Interactions

The unique Faction combat conditions:

  • Players in the faction system are able to freely attack any opposing faction member in Felucca only.
  • Players cannot be in a party with opposing faction members.
  • Pets will not attack players or pets within the same faction.

Faction Scoring and Rank

Getting Kill points
Kill points are earned when opposing Faction members successfully kill someone in an opposing Faction. The amount of kill points taken from the victim is 10% of the total kill points on the victim. (Percentages are rounded down.)

  • For example, assume the victim had 100 kill points and the winner of the fight had zero. 10% goes to the winner. The victim drops to 90 kill points and the winner of the fight now has 10 kill points.

When the victim’s kill point total is 19 or lower, the winner will receive 1 kill point.

When a Faction player reaches a deficit of 6 kill points, the winner will receive 0 kill points.

Note: Kill points decay over time.

This means you have died more than you’ve killed and are now in the hole so to speak.  The most deficit points any faction member can have are 6.

Point transfer
Once a day players can transfer kill points. Both parties must be members of the same faction, and the one who is giving the points must have at least 10 kill points. Once transferred, player A (giver) loses 5 points and player B (receiver) gets 4 points (1 point is lost in the trade).

To transfer kill points, say “I honor your leadership” and a target cursor will appear that can be used to select the player the kill points are to be transferred to.

Once per day, all faction player scores are recalculated in order to assign faction rank. Titles vary within each faction as described below. (note: faction titles aren’t always accurate.)

Death at the hands of a Faction Enemy = Stat Loss

Faction players are subject to a temporary skill loss of 33% when slain by a faction opponent. This penalty lasts 20 minutes – and is also applied if a faction character commits “suicide” or is killed by an opposing faction monster.Note: This penalty is not applied when a faction player is killed by a non-faction player, faction mate, or non-enemy faction monster.
