A bit worried. Sounds disturbingly like " largest faction is gonna own everything and smaller faction is gonna log right away". But im gonna think positively and those relics are hopefully very hard to take down so at least the smaller faction get a month to see the new stuff before they get overrun. Think positive, Think positive.  


Ditto. Up until now, it's been possible (even if impractical) to lvl to 60 without entering a PvP zone. I quite liked that, and that there was something you could do if you had a couple of weeks before you could buy your PID.

Now, the things you can do without a PID at L58+ are limited to:
OI.
Maybe farm L5 lapis at Stigma.
That's about it.

For the next month, until reasonable numbers of people hit 70 (which'll start happening like 10 days after the update hits) the maps will be fairly safe, but I reckon after that there will be raids running around the final maps, in a similar way to the raids running around DD clearing grinders =/

yes yes yes

this sounds very interesting. Very.

but

has anyone thought about the still not-addressed HUGE faction imbalance that u still charge 15k AP and no gear transfer per 1 person to transfer...as the ONLY balancing factor? I fear for the life of Etain if the fight fot the grind spots will be 4 Alliance raids vs 1½ Fury raids...which is basically an image of the cs balance and the reason why lights get 95% of the ele2s and thus already have a huge pvp advantage - apart from the numbers. Thank god most lights are plvld nubs spouted out of the Pando bot trains that can't play proper if their life depended on it. Their 60 skills still work tho. Numbers still matter. a LOT.

This invasion system is a bit worrisome, but I guess I'll wait to see how things play out before worrying about it too much. After reading about the invasion system, the one thing I'm not liking for sure though is the map setup.

There is a single straight path for light and fury to the main relic. So discounting tele points and summons, once you're outnumbered and trapped, you're in trouble. In dwater, you could always take a back way out to avoid campers and go take relics or whatever. In these map, it doesn't seem that option exists. Which could be a problem. But we'll see.

Just 1 question Smile Will there be an area in Palaion where if the other faction invades you can hide behind guards or if you have to go afk you can go there? Or is it strictly full pvp map no guards no exceptions? NPC killing legal etc? Could use more clarification XD

It is not God people fear; the people's fear is God.

Well If its stated that the new pvp map is 66-70, does that mean that only L66+ can enter Canos Illum? Which would mean first few weeks of grinding in the new map will be safe for both factions without having to worry of being invaded.

thx to likedemapples <3
