Note: Remember that this mechanic is not custom, We have been doing a lot of research to bring back to life discarded / unused mechanics from early days of the game.

Sands of Time #03

In one of my many travels, I noticed that we weren't punishing our players for committing dishonorable kills. This will change now, we have decided to visually punish them!

Dishonorable Ranks

For killing low level players or civilians, players will now be ranked negatively (this is only visual, apart from the fact that you'll need to earn a lot of honor again if you want to recover). We have added these dishonorable ranks:
  • Dishonored
  • Exiled
  • Outlaw
  • Pariah
Have fun and be evil!

Ranks aren't affecting anything game-wise?

Pure "cosmetic" and server reputation meaning only... I guess (which is the best imo)

Well, killing civilians and low level players have always lowered your honor standing.

yea... that's common knowledge. That's the way to get these ranks anyway.

I meant maybe on some NPC reactions towards ppl with these ranks...
I guess, with your answer, we could say - nope, everything is same, cept you are being labeled as a... well... beeep hiding_smth_turtle_head

Going to negative ranks makes me hostile towards my own faction?

I think it's Pariah that makes your factions stop trading with you.

Should be like it. At least that's what there used to be for neutral based factions, unless you commit unhonorable deed toward them explicitly.

If that's the case, then this opening post is missing important information.

It's currently not the case on Turtle WoW.

If you lower your honor rank to Pariah, nothing will change, apart if having a long way back if you ever decide to get back to positive ranking. If you lower reputation rank with any faction where it's possible, then yes, nobody will trade you anything and at some point will try on killing you.

It's mostly visual, to show off how badasshole you are :)

Perhaps it's my memory making tricks on me, but I recall I've read that on manual with the very first set of 4CD of WoW back in March 2005.
