Overview

Players can invite other players to a party. Once you are in the same group with other players you can not attack each other anymore and share experiences, loot, and other gameplay elements. Players in your party will also appear on your mini-map.

(please add a few good images)

Party Mechanics

Inviting Players

There are several two main ways to add players: targeted, and manual invites.

Manual

To do this player must be added to your friends' list.

  1. Click the "+" icon just under your player portrait
  2. Now enter the player's name in the prompt and confirm

Targeted

To do this player must be targeted and therefore in proximity to your character.

  1. Target the play by clicking them (left click) and you will see their portrait at the top of the game HUD near your player portrait.
  2. Now right-click on the player's portrait, and select the "Invite to Party" option

Chat

  1. Right click players name in chat window
  2. Click invite to party

Command

  1. Type /invite partymember in chat (if a player is in party, both parties will merge after accepting the invite)

Inviting Players

As of Lands awakened patch, you can now ask to join a party via command.

Command

  1. Type /join partymember in chat
  2. Wait for the party to accept you

Leaving

Right-click your player portrait and click leave party.

Looting Modes

There are two types of looting modes. Only the party leader (the person that initialized the party) can change the loot mode

Free

Party will be able to pick up loot with no restrictions. Use this if you are playing with people you trust, or if you don't care about looting.

Party

Loot will be only assigned to certain party members. This applies loot randomly between players. Use this in general with people you don't know or trust.

Fame Boosts

Depending on the size of a party a fame bonus is given to all members of the party. This makes grouping up with players greater than 2 beneficial.

  • Knocking enemies into the air now counts as knockback for DR, with individual adjustments applied to various abilities
  • Knockback DR Factor: 0.04 → 0.08
  • Knockback DR Time: 15s → 10s

    17 March 2021Call to Arms Update
    • Instanced areas (i.e. Hideouts) and tunnel zones are now included in the queue functionality, meaning players can now skip overcrowded zones outside their Hideouts and can skip into tunnel zones
    • Cluster Skipping is now possible when relogging into an overcrowded cluster
    • The Smart Cluster Queue now also activates in all Royal Continent zones:
      • This change makes large-scale Faction Warfare battles possible on the Royal Continent
