Faction System (PVP)
What & How
The faction system is basically a PvP (Player versus Player) system where there are, in this case, 4 factions.
Every new week you'll be set in a (random) faction.
We can station those 4 factions under: Firebreathers, Wind Nomads, Water Tribes and Earthbenders.
How do I enter the faction map?
Find your Arena Manager and click on him, he'll give you the option 'Enter Battlefield', click it.
You'll find yourself in the Safe Zone of Cowards. You'll spawn here if you die.
This is a place where you can find various NPCs such as a Buff Pang.
It's a safezone so this means there's no PvP.
Just a bit outside of the Safe Zone is ALL PvP, no exceptions.
You can seperate the PvP and non-PvP (safe zone) by a different sand color.
The goal of each faction's members is to acquire points.
You acquire points by killing members from enemy factions, killing monsters gathered around the map and bosses.
Killing bosses will give you the most points, but there are just a few of them.
Killing players has a different point system, killing an enemy of your own rank will give you 1 point, but as you kill higher ranks you'll get more points.
So, what can I do with these points? I hear you ask.
You can buy specially PvP based weapons! It's hard to acquire the nessecary points, but totally worth it as they're the NEW end game weapons.
They're called 'Trinium' and are tradeable.
The NPC is located in the Helms Deep (Castle) which you'll only be able to get to if you're in the winning Faction of that week.
For more information about the Castle check the Contents.
By killing people you get points, the more points, the higher your rank. Everyone starts out as a Nubcake, and as you get more points, your rank title will change: 1) Nubcake 2) Aggressor 3) Avenger 4) Savager 5) Berserker 6) Battlemaster 7) Grandmaster 8) Wardancer 9) Demigod 10) God __- Special rank with a lot of points. Only one member of each Faction can hold this title.
People's real In Game Names won't show, just their titles. You can see names from your allies though. You can't see other factions' typing, nor can you use Party / Guild / Shout / Whisper chat. It's basically anonymous, the more fun in PvP I'd say, hehe.
This is how the whole Faction map looks like.
Click on the name for a picture! A picture tells more than a thousand words, they say. (;
Mariella's Minefield of Death
A 'minefield' marked with red and yellow and surrounded by fences.
Yellow means death. Red has safe and hot spots.
The forest is located right top corner of the map.
To go there from the spawn simple walk north-west.
Safe Place of Cowards. The only Safe Zone within the whole map.
MadHatter's Mad Minefield
Another minefield! Yellow means death. Red has safe and hot spots.
Scary Tower Of Doom
A tower where fire and killing meet. Can be used as a hideout to defend.
The faction castle. For more information about this check the Contents.
Floating islands just floating about.Make yourself ready for an aerial attack.
A maze.. try not to get lost!
Navigator does not work in the maze.
Teleports can be found all around the map.
The teleport system seperates 2 teleports, the 1 way and the 2 way teleport.
On the picture below you can see where the teleports are located.
Red lines are 1 way teleports, Purple lines are 2 way teleports.
(one way simply means there's no teleport back there)
Helms Deep (Castle)General
Helms Deep is a castle in a restricted area in the Faction Map.
You're probably wondering how you get there.
As you know, as a faction you gain points, as a team.
The faction with the most points at the end of the week will have access to Helms Deep.
This means they'll receive a ticket to the castle in their Mail Box.
This ticket will will be destroyed after 7 days.
Helms Deep is used as a base / hangout of the winning Faction.
The castle cannot be entered from the outside, nor can you get out if you are inside.
besides teleporting and the ticket
Faction Reward shop
Click here to view all the item that you can trade in for the points you earned.
Inside this castle PvP is disabled, you can't kill your own Faction anyway, but still.
You can find various NPC's, pretty much all the NPC's you need when play Insanity Flyff.
There's also one NPC you can only find in Helms Deep; Faction Reward Shop.
This is the shop where you can trade in your faction points for Trinium Weapons.
You can also find a Buff Pang and some custom teleports to places such as Sanpres, Upresia, Herneos, Catacombs, Volcane, Basilisk's Nest and Traseia.
