Alignment

From Dofus 1.29
Jump to: navigation, search

Every Dofus character has an alignment. However, the system is more akin to factions than the traditional kind of alignment. With the exception of the neutral alignment, players must be P2P to become part of an alignment (although it is possible to remain part of an alignment once you become F2P again). Becoming part of an alignment lets you enter regular PVP fighting and conquest of areas for your alignment.

Alignments[edit]

Characters with an alignment can only aggress characters of different alignments. Similarily, many aligned NPCs will only fight characters of opposing alignment; some will also turn aggressive.

Neutral[edit]

Neutralsign.png The default alignment is Neutral, and it is linked to Amakna. Neutrals cannot aggress other characters, but they get a knight on their side if someone aggresses them on neutral territory.

Bontarian (The "Angels")[edit]

Brakmarian (The "Devils")[edit]

Brakmarsign.png Those siding with the city of Brakmar. They can be spotted by the red devil-like wings above their name. Neutral characters can join Brakmar's side by starting the Brakmarian Quest of the Wings at (-23,38).

The Mercenaries[edit]

Seriane Kerm.png The Mercenaries (often called Seriane Kerm, the name of the guild on Jiva which has the alignment) have no city of their own, but their headquarters are located in Astrub at (4,-21). Mercenary is an alignment that takes "contracts" in exchange for money. Unlike the other alignments, it relies heavily on role-playing, both from the Mercenaries themselves and anyone who wants to hire them. (In other words, anyone can take Bontarian or Brakmarian only for the game play benefits, but only people who role-play their characters can be a Mercenary.) The wings that appear above the names of Mercenary players look like wooden handcrafted wings that incorporate daggers.

It currently does not run on any English speaking servers. There is no known ETA for its incorporation on English servers, as it requires a solid player organization to take form first, as well as GMs to exclusively handle running the alignment, since all promotions within the alignment are given by higher-ups, rather than by NPCs.

Information on the Seriane-Kerm clan on Jiva can be found on their website. Note this is a French Role Playing association.

Features[edit]

Alignment Level & Orders[edit]

Your alignment level is determined by the number of bonta/brakmar alignment quest you complete. Complete 1 alignment quest raises your alignment level by 1.

After completion of the level 20 bonta/brakmar alignment quest, you may choose to become part of one of the three orders in your alignment. Each order gives different abilities and bonuses ranging from resistance to camouflage to priests. Your order level and benefits are improved upon completeing the 40th, 60th, 80th and 100th Bonta/Brakmar alignment quest.

PvP Mode / Wings Visibility[edit]

Aligned characters have the option of activating 'PVP mode'. When PvP mode, is on - the wings of your character are up / is visible to others. Whist in PvP mode you may:

Without none PvP mode on, none of the above may take place. You can still access alignment villages without having PvP mode on, and you may still be aggress by NPC (such as Bonta / Brakmar city guards) with your wings down.

Rank & Honor Points[edit]

See 'rank' for all the possible ranks obtainable.

Honor points determines your PVP rank, which gives various benefits. The higher your rank, the more and better the:

  • Possible equipment.
  • Shields.
  • Experience bonus (if area controlled by your alignment).
  • Drop bonus (if area controlled by your alignment).
  • Gathering profession bonus (if area controlled by your alignment).
  • Lower the prices of zaaps (to areas controlled by your alignment).

Honor points are gained by (whist having PvP mode on) defeating opposite alignment prisms (250 honor points) or by defending your own alignment prisms (100 points every 2nd defend). While a players wings are up they may be aggressed, or aggress someone of an opposing alignment. Losing an aggress will cause you to lose honour, while winning one will gain you honour - so long as the person/people who you defeated were around your level (e.g. A lvl 120 would gain no honour from aggressing a lvl 20).

Changing Alignment[edit]

You may change your character alignment ( to Bontarian,Brakmarian or Neutral) by talking to Morgan Faym'n at (4,-6) in Amakna Castle militia. You can now only change alignment once every 2 weeks (this includes turning neutral).

  • Changing to the minority alignment is free of charge.
  • Changing to the majority alignment is not an option. (To achieve this you would have to pay to go neutral and then give twiggy daggers or swords as per usual to select an alignment)
