Early Access Patch 2[edit | edit source]

Outcast System[edit | edit source]

  • The Outcast System is designed to remove bad actors who are trying to destroy their own faction.
  • Faction elders may initiate a two-minute interface popup vote to label a faction member as an outcast. If a successful vote is achieved (60% of online faction members and a scaling minimum vote count by reputation level), the faction member becomes an outcast and loses their faction representation (tattoo color) and most faction base permissions. Outcasts may still deposit research, spirits, and building upgrade materials. Attacking outcasts or their structures does not incur a faction reputation penalty.
  • Outcasts are queue-vulnerable meaning that if their faction is at capacity (20 players) and another player queues up, the outcast will be kicked from the server. Newly branded outcasts will be immediately kicked if there's a queue.
  • Outcast status lasts for 24 hours on the first successful vote, 72 hours on the second successful vote, and is permanent on the third successful vote. An outcast player can redeem themselves and remove their outcast status by earning 10,000 faction reputation.
  • Outcasts may only join the server they are outcast from if it doesn’t have a queue.
  • Outcast status carries over between sagas but does not carry over between servers.
  • The Outcast System will continue to be improved per player feedback and is just one aspect of our ongoing efforts to give players more control over their faction communities in Rend.

General[edit | edit source]

  • Reduced minimum server age for the Reckoning to 36 hours.
  • Updated saga conclusion bonus to 75% of earned Ascension Points and Victory Bonus to 25% of earned Ascension Points (for a total of 100% bonus for winners).
  • Players can now be muted or reported by right-clicking on their names in the faction or recent tabs of the social pane.
  • Reports can now be made against offline players.
  • Added server setting RareResourceHarvestMultiplier which is used to scale the drop chances of additive loot.
  • Added server setting StackCountScalar to scale the stack count of items which have a max stack count greater than 1.

Factions[edit | edit source]

  • Attacking friendly mounts now incurs a faction reputation penalty
  • Increased the faction reputation penalty for killing an allied player to 200 (up from 50).
  • The Terrible faction reputation rank has been split into three new negative faction reputation ranks with scaling combat penalties and loss of faction privileges.
* Miscreant (-50 Faction Reputation)

* Coward (-400 Faction Reputation)
 * Loses Faction Chat Privileges
 * -66% Damage Against Players
 * +50% Damage Received from Players

  • Looting a friendly corpse now deducts 500 faction reputation.
  • If the corpse is a Miscreant, Coward, Traitor, or Outcast, then there is no faction reputation penalty.
  • If the corpse is of a fellow clan member, then there is no faction reputation penalty.
  • Added scaling faction reputation requirements to Armor and Weapon Racks.
  • Players that have been offline for longer than two days lose Elder status until they log back on.

Early Access Patch 2.1[edit | edit source]

We’ve been closely monitoring player feedback and gameplay over the past week and are introducing a number of balance changes as a result in Patch 2.1. It also clarifies the purpose of the outcast system, highlighting what constitutes legitimate use from abuse. This game update resets all spent character points.

General[edit | edit source]

  • All Talent and Skill Perk points have been reset. You may respend your earned Talents (hotkey: N) and Skill Perks (hotkey: K).
  • Added a confirmation dialog when outcasting a player: "Are you sure you wish to outcast PLAYERNAME?".
  • Also added a notice to the confirmation dialog. "Abuse of the outcast system is a bannable offense. The outcast system is for players who are actively and intentionally damaging the faction. Being a new or inexperienced player does not constitute damaging the faction."
