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.

    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
      • Each Faction counts as its own contingent
      • Cluster Access Priority settings do NOT impact Faction-flagged players
      • The queue assigns at least 50 spots per Faction, even if they are vastly outnumbered
      • 50 spots are also reserved for non-Faction-flagged players, to prevent Faction players from completely blocking zones for other players

      • Now all available zones are immediately selectable
      • Opening the world map will no longer cancel cluster selection
      • The cluster selection screen now provides more info about the cluster:

      • All Tomes of Insight
      • All Reward Chests (will display an additional window showing accumulated loot): Adventurer's Challenge Chests, Crystal League Chests, etc.

  • 21 October 2020Rise of Avalon Patch 7 / Brimstone & Mist Midseason Update and Hotfix 7.1
    • AoE Escalation:
      • Escalation now increases by 8% for each additional target hit and caps at 40% extra damage:
        • 2 Targets hit = 8%
        • 3 Targets hit = 16%
        • 4 Targets hit = 24%
        • 5 Targets hit = 32%
        • 6+ Targets hit = 40%
    21 October 2020Rise of Avalon Patch 7 / Brimstone & Mist Midseason Update and Hotfix 7.1New Disarray parameters ensure the ZvZ meta plays out in a similar way across a wide range of fight sizes, while still offering smaller groups protection from large armies:
    • Disarray is no longer a flat debuff
    • Instead, it reduces damage output and CC Duration when attacking targets with a lower Disarray level
    • Against targets with the same or higher Disarray level, Disarray has no impact on your stats
    • Damage reduction depends on the difference of Disarray levels between attacker and target - the higher the difference, the greater the effect
    • Increased Disarray player cap; debuff now caps at Level 50 for 450 players
    21 October 2020Rise of Avalon Patch 7 / Brimstone & Mist Midseason Update and Hotfix 7.1The following changes give players more control over how they set up armies for the queue. Player sorting is now done on a per-party level, meaning the system will attempt to keep existing parties together:
    • Party leaders can now assign a Party Cluster Access Priority for their party as well as for individual members in the Cluster Access Priority UI (accessed via the party leader's player context menu)
    • Priority Access determines the order in which parties will enter an overcrowded cluster
    • This gives alliances more control over which forces are moved into the cluster and keeps party structures intact
    • The Preferred Cluster Access Guild Right has been removed
    • The queue now moves players from a single contingent either in or out during a given cycle, so players of the same contingent no longer replace each other
