PvP[edit | edit source]
Faction Insignias[edit | edit source]
can be acquired from completing Faction Daily Quests and from opposing faction mobs in Soulstone Plains. They are used for Clan Crafting and Clan Leveling. They can also be traded for items at faction merchants; for example, the Misty Woods Necklace, which is required to upgrade the Hongmoon necklace to True Siren, requires 30 faction insignias.
Contested Territory Insignias[edit | edit source]
Each Faction Contested Territory has its own kind of insignia. These are obtained from defeating opposing faction boss NPCs. They can be exchanged for Faction items at their designated Faction merchant, usually near the Territory where the insignias are obtained.
Contribution Points[edit | edit source]
Contribution points are needed to level up your rank within your faction. Some items acquired at faction insignia merchants require the player to be above a certain faction rank in order to be purchased. The list of Ranks and points needed to achieve each rank can be found on the Faction Ranks page.
Prestige Points[edit | edit source]
When fighting in Faction Contested Territory while wearing a Crimson Legion or Cerulean Order outfit, defeating opposing faction NPCs within three levels of the player's level will reward Prestige Points. Killing other players does not yield any prestige points unless they have themselves obtained prestige points which they haven't turned in for contribution points yet. The amount of points that will be rewarded by defeating a specific character can be seen to the left of their names.
Prestige Points are temporary faction currency and accumulate until traded in for Faction Contribution Points or until lost. The former are obtained in tiers as follows:
|Prestige Points||Faction Contribution Points Ratio|
|21 and more||1:3|
Prestige Points can be lost in many cases: if downed, if the Faction Outfit is removed, if the player changes channel, if Windstride is used, if the current region is left or if the player logs out or quits the game.
Zen Beans[edit | edit source]
Zen Beans are obtained from competing in 1v1 or Tag Matches. They are also rewarded for completing the Arena Match Daily Quests. Zen Beans can be used to buy various items from the Zen Bean Trader Dragon Trade Courier.
Battle Points are obtained from competing in Whirlwind Valley or Beluga Lagoon, where two teams of six players fight it out with each other. They are also rewarded for completing the Battleground Daily Quests. Battle Points can be used to buy various items from the Battleground Trader Eosin.
