In MMORPGs, as well as other exploration-heavy titles, there are always important places to visit. These places can be important story wise, quest wise, item wise, or are just important to the world in general. Whether it’s a key city to a kingdom or the site of a legendary battle, there’s always a lot to see in these worlds. Revelation Online knows that, and as such, they’re highlighting some key tourism locations they feel you should visit in the game.
The first place they choose to highlight is Tidewater Village. This small village grew via the descendants of those who protected an altar dedicated to the Sea God. Tidewater Village is an important place for reasons other than the altar, though, as it’s one one of the main faction locations in the game. This, of course, means it’s a place where you can get special items if you have enough favor with the faction.
This is done by earning special cards, and these cards are again gotten by earning favor with the faction. The cards range from Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Black. Having these cards not only proves your worth to the faction but also give you access to special items at the vendor in the village.
Items you can get with these cards vary from Tortoise Shells, Sweetdew, Silver Stones, bamboo shoots, and more. If you are able to reach the “revered” status in the village, you’ll get a very special item known as the “Blue Cross Hairpin”, which you can’t get anywhere else.
So, how do you earn favor? You complete faction quests. The more you do, the more favor you earn, and thus, the better stuff you get.
This is but one location in Revelation Online that you’ll want to visit on your travels, so stay tuned for more.
