With the recent addition of player created factions XLGames finally took a step in the direction of meaningful large-scale pvp. I don't have all the details of it right now, but LlexX posted a nice link of the goha.ru forums where players explained how you can create a faction.

 

6b841fed5ba8067ed40285321b1dbc04.jpg

 

 

To create a player faction, you need to accomplish 6 tasks which involve crafting and farming.

 

First of all, you need to talk to the Lord of the Liberty Island to get to the "폴리 테이아 에게서" "Material from Theia" => Press Machine. [Probably used to announce your faction]

 

951a38b037fa016d0849d881c7dbe588.jpg

 

Then you need a tank 98518f68a16d4fc010de87dc7961dd5e.jpg and a black pearl 1e86d5d27ea9c9f8db1f85ee798be74e.jpg. This is definitely not easy to get, the blueprint for the tank costs roughly 40 gold and a lot of materials, and the black pearl is not easy to get at all (blueprint involves getting a quest etc).

 

After this you need 3 different gliders: The butterfly(Glider of the Goddess) 47211fd01c4ce87ef757a9722929fe98.jpg, bat (Glider of Moonshadow)781ed9331872a7c98d0ff62ac914e319.jpg and red one(Red Dragon)5c1e6321742e72eeadb6427e43e5da33.jpg.  Prices range between 250 and 400 gold for each[prices edited for Ollo serverpool]

 

The third task is to get the red race car: bcaf11bc64bc083954112ab3a155ed45.jpg which adds much more gold and materials to the requirements. It costs 50k honor to buy the blueprint for the racecar. [Note: I'm not sure if you have to specifically buy the car for honor points!]

Once you've got the car, you need to get the blueprint of a guild mansion fea5584b18ff9d4a5e8058b400ca01fb.jpg. That is another 1000 Delphi coins, so roughly 1000 gold +/-.

 

Finally, the one no one could expect:

You need 5000 casino coins!4e9a40f95a8a1014803236bfeccad7cc.jpg. Those are obtained via the chest event on the northern continent. You get 1 coin for a small chest, 5 for a big one. The chests spawn randomly accross the whole continent between 6 a.m. and 12  a.m ingame time!

 

be87dce5fb2476290c97056956643cd6.jpg
 

 

After you have all the materials, you have to find NPCs in different parts of the world

 

Location 1: In the port of Long Sand

Location 2: In the Steppe Belt

Location 3: In Hasla

Location 4: In Two Crowns

Location 5:In Sunrise Peninsula

 

When you met all these and have all the materials together, the Lord of Liberty Island can make the flag called "Флаг Тысячи поданных"(Flag Thousands Filed? Google translate fails here.) with the machine on Liberty Island.

 

dfa8a44bf5809c4a1c00d011d39447ef.jpg

 

You then take the flag to your own territory and now have the possibility to create your own faction.

 

The result:

Roughly 26k gold just to create your faction. Good luck, ladies and gentlemen! :)

I see you couldn't wait for me to translate it :D.
Well thanks then, more time for me to relax  B) (a +1 from me)
 
Now we know whats needed to make a player faction (26k gold worth of stuff), lets collect some infos about how they actually work in the game...
 
UPDATE:
Source: GoHa.ru - Introduction to Custom Faction
Source: board.ArcheAge

[Interview] with Choi Chung-Ho about Player Factions and Future Plans
 

How Player Factions will Work

 
It is time to begin a new era of National independence. Guild owning a territory on the Northern Contient can  proclaim their own faction (nation) and separate itself from the NPC factions. By this the Expedition Force (Guild) will reborn as a Nation (Faction).

fd062114164e4f2d6091d2be5197a163.jpg

 
The system allows to establish independent faction relations with all existing factions (NPC and other player made as well). And also allows you to combine the players who were previously hostile factions (Hariharan and Nuian). During the truce between faction players, they can come to each other's territory, and the guards will not attack them, and you can easily interact with the NPC merchants.
 
Right now, for a player faction it's only possible to set relationships towards the NPC factions, in the future it will be possible to establish relations with other independent factions as well.
 
Players wishing to change faction can do this by using a special window in the interface, called the "국가 - Nation Window" and by clicking on "Immigrate".
However, the final decision on accepting the player to join a faction remains for the King of the Nation to decide.
Due to the current system, any player who is a part of a faction can easily change it.
However, the system does not allow dual citizenship, and also you can't change the faction by being a pirate.
 
Guild, who founded his own faction, can collect tax from the players (citizens) for their membership in the faction. The King of the Nation will decide on the taxing rate.
 
In future updates various benefits will be added to the memberships of the faction.

Am I the only one that feels like this is a kick to the teeth?

 

I mean, the declaration should be abour PVP and perhaps some sort of popularity. Not grinding.

 

They are basically asking for  "go trough all the PVE content , grind absolutely everything there is expensive in the game, and then you maybe can declare.... WHAT?  What sort of nonesense is that. This should be much more clever and much more "interactive". Not questing or grinding.

People that already have territories/castles should be absolutely free to just announce it, perhaps put the printing machine in some use (you should be able to place signs/propaganda, etc.) But not the stupid amouth of grinding. Its just absurd.

 

What the hell. Sorry, but people that want to be "parted"  from the starting factions are not those who completely nolife/grind/ love PVE. The people who want that are those who want the political freedom which should be there. Another awful decision XL... another.

I think it's just another goldsink, really. While I would like it to be more about PvP I don't mind having to put some "Open World" effort into it.

But really, what effort could be made? Kill 500 guys?~

 

Biggst problem is I don't even know how factions work, especially together with NPC factions. That is much more important.

I'm still ultra confused about how this will all work.  Thanks for all the translating above.

 

So once the faction has been established, I presume any side can join?  For example, if a guild of westerners makes a faction, can easterners then join it?

Any guild can join a faction, no matter what starting continent.

How think it's going to work reading the Korean feedbacks:

  1. Make a guild, which is called Expedition Force in AA, and as we know it limits which races can join.
  2. Upgrade that Expedition Force to a Nation, and you can invite players from any race.
  3. The Nation (other word Player Faction) is still a guild and not an alliance of guilds.
  4. The King (leader) of a Nation can set the relation towards other Nations and NPC factions (hostile, friendly, neutral).

At least these are my thoughts, but im not 100% that it's going to work like this.

We still have to wait until it gets implemented and Koreans write a guide about it.

As far as I know, you upgrade multiple forces at once, not only one. At least thats what it looks like when I see Fido's vid who tried to get some info out of it but only found the general window for it:

So there is no limit to the number of Nations you can have on a server?

While this sounds like it can be amazing, i do agree that the method of achieving "Nation" status is rather... odd. I'm curious how long it will take for the first independent Nation to appear in NA.

Getting to that patch will probably take 1 year and 1 day for the nation.
