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.
