You now get 1 bonus weekly XP for being part of a faction. In order to adjust for those who don't want to join a player-run faction we've added...
NEW FACTION - Adventurer's Guild.
This is an NPC based faction, located in the Enchanted Forest. You can join this faction by achieving level 10, and engaging in a dialog with the NPC sitting on the desk.
NEW NPC TYPE - Advanced NPCs.
The guild leader for the Adventurer's Guild is the upgraded version of the Beastmaster NPC. They'll remember you, change dialog options based on what you've done or who you're with. They'll also become a weekly quest giver soon!
