The Kurzick and Luxon versions are considered separate skills, however you cannot simultaneously equip both a Kurzick skill and a Luxon skill.
  • The first rank increases the faction cap by 5,000, each subsequent rank increases it by 1,000.

[edit] Acquisition

Transfer the respective faction points to either a Kurzick Bureaucrat or a Luxon Scavenger. Faction points can be transferred in several ways (shown in table below). Depending on the method used, the number of faction points transferred does not correspond with the amount gained towards the progress of this title track.

Method Faction points spent Title points gained
Donate faction points to your guild1 5,000 10,000
Exchange faction points for Amber Chunks or Jadeite Shards 5,000 5,000
Exchange faction points for Passage Scrolls to either Urgoz's Warren or The Deep 1,000 1,000
Exchange faction points for Kurzick or Luxon skills2 3,000 6,000
Turning in Shiro's Return None 10,000-120,000 depending on mode and pages filled
Turning in Young Heroes of Tyria None 16,000-90,000 depending on pages filled
  1. You must be in a guild with allegiance to the appropriate faction in order to transfer faction in this manner.
  2. You must have at least rank 1 with the appropriate faction and be level 20 in order to exchange points for skills.

Unlike other reputation titles, faction points you earn don't count directly to the title. You must earn the faction points, and then transfer them. You have a maximum initial capacity of 10,000 unspent faction on your account, which can be increased as you progress through Factions. Any further faction you earn after reaching the cap is wasted, so it's advisable to spend the faction before that point. Consider waiting for a Faction Support weekly bonus before turning in quests that reward Kurzick or Luxon faction points.

The faction can be earned by:

[edit] Notes

  • The maximum faction cap for each type of faction is 70,000; see Kurzick faction and/or Luxon faction for details.
  • You can maximize either title by:
    • Completing Shiro's Return (hard mode) just over 83 times.
    • Playing on the winning team for 357 hours in The Jade Quarry (assuming each round takes 15 minutes and you earn at least 4,000 Imperial Faction per round).
    • Completing at least 172 Vanquishes (assuming 58,000 faction each VQ, which implies an area with 400 enemies and 4 bosses and that you donate your faction to your guild).
  • Allegiance rank for title skills translates to an effective attribute rank as follows:
bug: when playing fort aspenwood, if all your team players resign before the start of the battle, you will get 2000 imperial factions within the minute
