With recent events it seems we will finally get into obtaining new allies into the war effort against the Elder Dragons called Allied Factions.
So how do you think Allied Factions may play out through lore reasoning and how that lore may affect the Allied Faction's functions in gameplay?
So far we confirmed that specific factions will finally join the fight against the Elder Dragons and bring in unique NPCs specifically for their faction and some may have unique abilities or combat styles exclusive to their faction.
Crystal Bloom = Elona theme NPCs and have Paragon job NPCs with paragon skills
Ebon Vanguard = Ascalonian NPCs (I can only assume they may have some Ebon Vangard skills from GW1 EotN)
Deldrimor Dwarves = Stone Dwarf NPCs (I can only assume they may have some Deldrimor skills from GW1 EotN)
Tengu = Tengu NPCs using skills we seen for ourselves on the receiving end with Tengu enemies.
I actually won't be surprised if they brought back faction reputation for extra rewards and/or ability to upgrade specific factions
