Factions & Town Sieges
You may ally with one of three factions: Lotor, Neutral, or Talazar. All characters begin as Neutral. To join a faction, talk with a faction officer in Lotor’s Summer Palace. They will give you a series of quests. Once you complete the quests you will be part of that faction. You can change faction from Lotor to Neutral to Talazar and back from Talazar to Neutral to Lotor, but you cannot change directly from Lotor to Talazar or vise versa.
Lotorian and Talazarian players are open to be attacked by the opposing factions at all times. Guards in a hostile town controlled by the opposing faction will attack and attempt to kill players of the other faction. Lotorian and Talazarian players may attempt to take over a Neutral or opposing town by attacking and defeating the Town Guardian. The Town Guardian is a very strong boss who lives in certain towns. Towns without a Town Guardian cannot be sieged.
Neutral players can walk freely in any town and cannot be attacked by other players unless they are wanted for attacking an NPC (including town guardians), turn their PVP flag on manually (type /pvp), or heal someone of a different faction. Once the Neutral player’s PVP flag is on it will not turn off for 24 hours. Neutral players may participate in a town siege with a different faction and help take over a town (type /pvp lotor ; /pvp talazar to temporarily ally with a faction).
When you defeat the town guardian, the town will change to alignment to that faction. Depending on your participation, you will get a certain number of faction points for defeating the town guardian. There are NPCs in LSP that sell faction armor for faction points. You can only wear that armor when it matches your alignment. Thus, if you buy Lotorian faction armor and switch to the Neutral or Talazar faction, you cannot equip the Lotorian armor until you change back.
You can check a player’s faction by looking at the color of their name or by viewing their character screen . White stands for Lotor, green for Neutral, and Orange for Talazar. Light green is for neutral players flagged for PVP and flashing grey indicates the player is wanted. Blue is a special color reserved for GMs and Developers. Hostile creatures have red name, non-hostile creatures have yellow names.
Soul, mind, body, nature, cut, blunt, pierce are all a bonus to resistance, not to skill. Buff 1 lasts 2 hours, 2nd buff lasts 1 hour.
You can only attack a member of the opposing faction or a neutral player who is flagged for PVP. Looting items from a dead player’s backpack will immediately cause you to become wanted, at which point you are flagged for PVP and will be attacked (and jailed) by any surrounding guards. Only items from the player’s backpack can be looted, armor and weapons they have on at the time of death cannot be looted.
Players go wanted for attacking players 20 levels below their current level regardless of faction affiliation. Players killed my a player 20 levels above them will not drop any loot.
To enter PVP island you must purchase a pass from the store for 10 tokens and then speak to the PVP island NPC on the west bank of Lotor’s Summer Palace. You will enter at a random spot on PVP Island with all of your current gear and the belongings in your backpack, at which point you may attack and be attacked by other players, regardless of the faction alignment. You cannot loot other players’ corpses. For each player you kill will you will earn 6 tokens.
Once you enter there is no time restriction on how long you can stay. If you are killed by another player you will return with your winnings to Lotor’s Summer Palace. You can also choose to leave PVP Island at any time by talking to the “Leave PvP Island” NPC and return to LSP with your winnings. If you leave PVP island at any time you must pay to enter again. There are no other NPCs or monsters on PVP Island. Be prepared with healing potions and other items you will need to survive.
PVP points can be earned by defeating other players or by defeating someone on PVP island. NPCs on LSP will exchange PVP points for special gear.

I'm not receiving the old bonus hp for being an orc =/
Op! My apologies, new bonuses do not stack with old bonuses. However, there are some racial bonuses on the way that didn't make it in this time.
Oh, ok. Thanks for the info =)
PcP island sounds fun!!
FujiQ had a typo. lol
I can only hope that is my lasting legacy. But no, tis fixed now.
What about players who used a race change.
My orc once nightelf looks like a human.
Any fix for it?
How do faction and reputation alignments interact? Will a Crusader who is a member of Talazar's faction still be attacked on sight by Evil guards, for example?
So how will lower levels gain faction points with the sieges or pvp island...sounds like another way to spread the gap in pvp.
Ive noticed no body said anything about it on the web page or forum that i could see.... but, what are the new changes for the bronze level accounts mentioned on the launcher?
I should add that, thanks!
Bronze players now gain xp at 50% the normal rate, can party, and have limited trade (cannot receive from subscribers). Used to be no party, no trade, and 10% rate.
Awesome thanks for the info
I'm not the best at finding things in the forums, so I figured that I would ask here.
Where are the new rules, how do things work on Legends, all I've found are the way things work for Heroes.
Everything sounds awsome! Changes FTW!
One question about PVPisland tho...
If I go there and kill a player that is more then 20 lvls lower then me, do I still get 6 tokens for that?
Trade is not possible between players of opposing factions.
O.K. You say that if we die on PVP Island we are returned to LSP with our "winnings" and bodies cannot be looted. Does this mean we don't drop anything if we die on pvp island?
so basically 1000's of tokens must be bought before the new leet gear is available
leave me and my hypothetical situations alone.
Can people in Legends seige towns? or is that only for Heroes?
hail to thee . i sit at a spawn gate can do nothing because i buffed a player in hammer bank so im marked pvp. i sit at this spanw gate for 24 hours and cant play this game just sit at this spawn gate. canot craft because all some 1 needs to do is kill me and keep me in pvp mode. i sit at this spawn gate thinking about this game and PAY money to play this game but i cant play this game i can only sit at this spawn gate

How long do I have to wait if I want to change faction? Tried to talk talazarian officer, but he just said "its too soon us to talk"..
Been neutral for like 3 weeks.. Soo, how long I have to wait?
EDIT: So wait, I need to wait 24hours without buffing any1 / healing any1 etc to turn my pvp off and then turn it back on as talazarian? Wow stupid.
EDIT: I changed to Talazarian couple days ago with the /pvp talazar command. It says "Chaotic NEUTRAL" and Im talazarian.
Cant rez other talazarians, says im in different faction or my pvp flag is off. Cant do talazarian quest, says "too soon us to talk".
How do I get to talazarian???
ok im a lotor but want to go bak to neutral...and ive already talked to the redeemer but i cant find the donation box or watever its called can sum1 tell me wat to do plz.
I will be back for this
What about partying, I heard somewhere you couldn't party with...sec...EXample if i was nuetral and someone else was evil I couldnt party with them is that true vis versa with good
As long as the party leader is neutral, any faction can be in a party.
