1 general info
AB is a PvP match between 12 players in each team
those 12 players are divided in teams of 4 players
the team of 4 are created in the waiting areas

2 how to win?

there are several ways to win:
1: getting 500 points before the other team gets 500 points.
2: having all 7 shrines under your teams control for 60 seconds
3: the enemy team all resign or all leave or are not active

3 what do you get with winning?

the team thats wins gets 1500 faction(depends if your kurzick or luxon)

4 what do you get from losing?

you get the the faction but it depends on how much points you have
example: if your team has 431 and lost you get 431 faction

5 do i get something during a match?

yes you do you get faction points, balthazar faction and experience per kill

6 dying

if you die you get rezzed within 15 to 20 seconds and you dont get Death Penalty

7 whats the underdog bonus?

many people dont know this but if you play on a map where your team is in a disadvantage you get the underdog bonus
the underdog bonus gives double or triple faction per kill and per victory or defeat
example: you lost on the Etnaran Keys and your team has 255 points you get 510 faction instead of 255

The Ancestral Lands 200% underdog bonus for the luxons
Grenz Frontier 100% underdog bonus for the luxons
saltspray beach 0% no team has underdog bonus
Etnaran Keys 100% underdog bonus for the kurzicks
Kaanai Canyon 200% underdog bonus for the kurzicks

8 whats the use of shrines?

shrines are important to a AB match the more you got under control the more points you get per kill
example: your team has 5 shrines under control and you kill someone you get 5 points towards the 500 points

some shrines have NPC's that can walk with players
this is not very usefull since then there is 1 less NPC to guard to protect the shrine

the most important shrine is the Resurrection shrine
those allow you to spawn much closer to the others shrines when you die so you can cap them more easily

the most dangerous shrine is the elemental shrine
the ele guardians at that shrine got power skills that knock you down and give alot of damage so be carefull at that shrine

9 the border

the border is the red/blue line on the factions worldmap
which changes every 3 hours
3 GMT
6 GMT
9 GMT
12 GMT
15 GMT
18 GMT
21 GMT
24 GMT
the border shows how much territory the 2 factions have and the border also important to which map you on

10 the maps

there are 5 maps in total:


The Ancestral Lands
huge advantage to the kurzicks
200% underdog bonus for the luxons
you play on this map when the luxons have captured alot of kurzick territory


Grenz Frontier
advantage to the kurzicks
100% bonus for the luxons
you play on this map when luxons have captured a little of kurzick territory


Saltspray Beach
neutral map no advantage to either team
no underdog bonus here
you play on this map when the border is in the middle of both territories


Etnaran Keys
advantage to the luxons
100% underdog bonus for the kurzicks
you play on this map when the kurzicks have captured a little of luxon territory


Kaanai Canyon
huge advantage to the luxons
200% underdog bonus for the kurzicks
you play on this map when the kurzicks have captured alot of luxon territory

11 usefull skills

skills that deal Area of Effect(AoE) damage are very usefull to enemy groups
minion skills are also usefull due you get more allies to deafeat the other team
since there will alot of allies and enemies dying corpse spells are very usefull
a running skill is also usefull so you can move faster from shrine to shrine
for melee users either good defensive skills to tank so you can protect the caster
since most melee users can hit only 1 target take strong attacks with you to kill the enemy as fast as possible

12 useless skills

due to you get rezzed within 15 to 20 seconds bringing rez skills is useless
there are no morale boosts so skills that need a morale boost to recharge are useless

13 what to do with faction?

you can do several things with you blood earned faction:
1 donate faction to the guild (5000 faction) (this gives 10000 points in your title)
2 buy a PvE skill (3000 faction) (this gives 3000 points in your title)
3 buy a amber chunk (5000 faction) (this gives 5000 points in your title)
4 buy a passage scroll (1000 faction) (this gives 1000 points in your title)

hope this guide is usefull to you i would love to hear what you think of it so post a comment or wisp me ingame or say through guild or alliance char^^
