Imperial faction is a representation of the efforts you have made in support of the Dragon Empire, and by extent your reputation with the empire. Your current amount of Imperial faction can be seen on the faction tab of the Hero panel.
 Faction rewards
- Imperial faction can be traded to Hei Tsu, found in all the Alliance Battles, Fort Aspenwood, and Jade Quarry outposts:
 Faction cap
The maximum Imperial faction cap is the sum of the Kurzick and Luxon faction caps, allowing for a total cap of 140,000 faction.
- Use caution when exchanging all your faction: Hei Tsu will take any Imperial faction you have, but will only reward up to relevant cap (in Balthazar, Kurzick, or Luxon faction); you will lose any faction over that cap.
- The amount of Balthazar faction will be rounded down.
- Imperial faction was introduced as part of the June 2nd, 2011 update.
