The Dragon Nest Faction system has been upgraded.  All new NPC's found in Saint’s Haven will have their own entries in the friendship book as well as their own quest series. Friendship has also gotten more rewarding with the addition of Honest Ed’s new Faction Shop in Saint’s Haven.

How to use the Faction system:

• NPC’s offer friendship quests, and when completed, you will become “friends” with that character. Their portrait in the friendship book will then appear in color.

• NPC’s like to receive specific items that drop in dungeons. Speak to an NPC and then select “Gift” to give them gift items from your inventory. Each gift will give you Faction points for the Faction that character belongs to.
• You may claim items from Honest Ed in Saint’s Haven with your Faction Points.


• Golden Goose Traders
      - The Golden Goose Traders are the largest and most powerful merchant faction in Altera.
      - Members: May, Belin, Kelly, Honest Ed, Erwin, and Rupert.
      - Rewards: Membership 7-Day Coupons, Rare and Epic weapons.

• Cassius Palace
      - This is the unofficial name for the web of courtiers, officials, and citizens somehow connected to the royal court and the government of the Northern Kingdom. 
      - Members: Captain Steve, Tara, Lady Kaylinn, King Cassius III, Duke Stuart, General Duglas, Tamer Lindsay, Irine, Lena, and Guardsman Joey.
      - Rewards: Rare and Epic Potential Pouches, Rare and Epic weapons.

• Free Adventurer’s League
