Kurzick or Luxon

I hope this remains a fun subject, but I am curious among the devs and players alike. Who did you side with in Factions? Obviously you may have played both stories, but which side did you stick with in the end?

    I prefer Kurzick lore but Luxon characters are better in my opinion.

    Everything about my personality should have made me want Kurzick, but in the end I was Luxon all the way.

    Kurzick have better armors. Also, Luxon somehow never manage to counter the Active Bonder monk build in Aspenwood :p

    Luxon, I'd rather be a Pirate than a tree huger (they're even petrified trees).

    The Kurzick story and culture just appeal more to me. One of my GW2 toons is named "Spellsinger" after the Kurzick Spell Singers in the Eternal Grove mission.

    The Kurzick poet with my name is still sellling books in Kaineng, how can I not chose Kurzick.
    Getting that "Have you been to Kaineng lately" message from Gaile was one of the highlights of GW1 & the community experience for me, back then.

  • Kurzick

    I like the goth lifestyle of the Kurzicks.
    Also they ain't poor like the luxons. I mean they got castles instead of tents.

    Kurzick, their forest and culture is just amazing.

    Also, why is the Kurzick option red and Luxon blue on this poll and not the other way around? D:

    Again, when I created the poll, I could not see which colors would go to which option. And I am unable to edit the poll now that it is running. Sorry guys.

    Kurzick all the way. I always felt attracted to their dark, mysterious and intelligent nature and loved the Gothic style. Far better than those hammer-wielding barbarians.

    I just loved to stand with Master Architect Gunther with a big piece of Amber to finish off the timer and /wave the Luxons goodbye to their certain deaths. :biggrin:

  • Alas, I wasn't good enough to get that far in Factions. :'(

  • Luxon

    I preferred the Luxon aesthetic—their leviathan vessels were super cool. On a side note, Gyala Hatchery was one of the first maps I worked on as an ArenaNet artist. The Luxon quarry map was the second, though all our maps were group efforts.

    I wish I could but it's coded in a way I can't change it. But really, what does it matter? Everyone knows the proper answer (blue) even if the options (blue) are a little (blue) off in the poll. ;)

    I can't think of a single map in GW1 that I actively dislike. ( There are some I fear. ) No, the textures aren't always perfect.. but the game overshadows the small imperfections. Y'all did a fantastic job.

    Luxon. Better armor style, better areas.

    Kurzick, i think most of people and guild were Kurzick aligned, because there was this quest outside Lutgardis Conservatory's east entrance that you can complete with sending your henchmen to tag an area, making Kurzick fame much easier to farm than Luxon, there were hundreds of ppl doing the same farm there everyday.

    Don't know if that quest had changed or not, or has anet added anything equivalent to the Luxon side

    I absolutely loved Kurzick lore and reading about their different Houses. I also loved the forest atmosphere they lived in with Gothic architecture carved into kitten stone.

    Man it was fun playing factions for the first time.

    Tough choice. I love the Kurzick stone forest aesthetic, on the other hand.... siege turtles!

    The Luxon npcs had a better look, and a bit more pleasant personalities, but I just love that stone forest... Kurzick had some incredible looking armor too. My main char was an Assassin named 'The Kurzick Dagger' even.

  • Luxon

    I miss running through the jade sea and discovering all the creatures encased in blocks of jade that were scattered around. Plus Siege Turtles are win.

    Luxon forever. There's just something about the beauty of the Jade Sea.

  • Kurzick

    goths that live in immense stone castles amidst a dark, giant stone forest? cmon thats an easyyyy pick. everything about their lands are breathtaking and the culture is is great, its nice seeing alternative lifestyles and stuff being represented more in games, even if it wasnt meant that way. pity the luxon armour looks cooler but still cant beat the kurzicks

  • Luxon

    I originally picked luxon, only switch to kurzick because they had the fast faction farm.

  • Think time to pop back there to see which faction I was supporting but think it was Luxon. Can remember also the stunning views. Also the fun people had in the gathering area while waiting to join an event. Also as the colour of the map kept changing - was first time one coud actually see impact of player choices.

    Kurzick

    This is honestly a really tough choice since I love both factions and their cultures, aesthetics etc. pretty equally. But, I have to go with the Kurzicks because the first set of elite armor I got for my main character (and the one she still wears today) was the elite Kurzick set.

    Kurzick

    Looking at the poll results currently it seems both factions were really spot on (almost equal votes).

    Personally I preferred Kurzick for 2 reasons: 1. they are much cooler 2. better armor sets

    Luxon because they had the GIANT turtles and I loved em.

    I went Kurzick because a friend went Kurzick. Never even considered Luxon until another friend said "Try it, you'll like it..."

    After trying Luxon, it was so wrong on so many levels. Kurzick all the way! (Sidenote: I did love the Luxon Elite Ele armor... )

    Luxon, easily. Siege turtles are awesome and the Jade Sea is one of the coolest areas between all of the games/campaigns.

    Despite me being German , i side with Luxon and not with the kind of german theme related Kurzicks, out of these reasons:

    • Luxon sounds just much nicer, Kurzick has a foul language sounding nickname in German, I won't write out here now ...
    • I liked the turtle and kind of corsair like theme of Luxons much better, than the kind of sorrowful Goth Style of the Kurzicks.. and who can say really no to some lovely huge turtles which have giant cannons on their back :D.
    • Their Armor Sets were simply visually more beautiful and convincing to me

    It's a difficult choice to make, since both have their good points. I like the architecture and generally more civilised bent of the Kurzicks, with each house having its own separate flavour.

    If I had to choose just one and I was making the decision myself (my guild went with Kurzicks), though, I'd probably go with the Luxons. I preferred their armour, the Jade Sea was one of my favourite zones and had some of my favourite opponents (visually, anyway, I probably swore at some of them quite a bit!), the concept of siege turtles and travelling on giant sea beasts was a compelling one, and on the whole I preferred the Luxon armour sets to the Kurzicks. (My GW1 characters have a mix of both, but out of the Factions sets, most of the ones I just had to have were either the 15k Luxon or the 15k Canthan sets.)
