SO we (Crisis) just finished the faction trials (yesterday evening, lol) and I gotta say...Thank you PWE.
Not only are some of the Trials fun and require coordination and teamwork, the rewards are pretty nice too. Now you can farm Astrospira level 2 as a faction (12? for yourself and 120 for the faction bank if you do all trials per week) for the new players so they can catch up quicker (without living in heavenfall temple and still get rekt by luck). You also get some G17 mats, some Chart Exp, some Avatar Exp and some A/S-Packs as well.
Let's also not forget the new mats to craft S-Cards. However, I was a bit disappointed by the quantity of the items you get. I got 7 of one type of those items after 10 trials.
Also, the server-first title looks neat (or will when fixed) and the title for completing all trials is a nice boost in stats (20 att, 30 def (both types each ofc)).
So thanks again and we will be looking forward to doing more trials!!!
PS. Once mastered I don't think all 10 Trials will take more than 1,5 - 2 hours in total.
