Guild Wars: Factions



A continent torn asunder.
Two hundred years ago the continent of Cantha was forever changed by the hatred and fury of the traitor brought to justice. Now, In the midst of brutal civil war, the malignant spirit of the traitor Shiro Tagachi has returned to complete the destruction he began.
Strengthen your alliance & fight for Territory.
Form alliances to fight for one of two factions, Kurzicks or Luxons. Large scale alliance battles pit the allies of the one faction against the other to determine the new face of the continent.
In the depths of the petrified forest the Kurzicks make their homes among ornate buildings masterfully crafted from giant stone tress. They believe in gentility, nobility and order.
Where once they traveled the wild waters of the sea are still. Luxons must now traverse the hard expanse of the sea turned to jade. These nomads move as need be required, relying on strength for survival.

Guild Wars Factions was released in 2006 by ArenaNet, the second in the Guild Wars series. Factions introduces the continent of Cantha where two warring factions, the Luxons and the Kurzicks, are locked in a global persistent war. Players are able to join in this conflict, assisting their chosen faction in claiming towns on the game map. Factions has a new PvE campaign, two new professions in addition to the original six, new skills and armor for existing professions, new game play modes for both PvE and PvP, and game play modifications in response to criticism of the earlier Prophecies campaign. Factions can be bought as a stand-alone game or can be added to an existing Prophecies account to produce a merged account with several benefits. Most of the PvP content from Prophecies is available to Factions-only accounts.
