Fellowships are temporary groups that can be formed quickly by recruiting or "fellowing" up to 8 (9 total) other players. Once part of a fellowship, members can share xp, luminance and loot as well as gain access to fellowship chat, status for player vitals and other interface features.
Experience and Luminance
Players can choose between two types of fellowship - Xp Sharing and Non-Xp Sharing. The latter is useful for players that do not want to share Xp but still wish to be part of a fellowship for the interface benefits.
Fellowships are defaulted to XP-Sharing. If all members of the fellowship are within 5 levels of the founder, XP will be shared equally. If members are all within ten levels of the founder, XP will be shared proportionally.
If all members of the fellowship are level 50 or above, all members will share XP equally, and there will be no limit to the levels of the members involved. Equal share fellowships will also earn an experience bonus.
In addition to Xp, it's also possible to share Luminance in a fellowship. The share range for Luminance, however, is drastically shorter than the range for shared Xp.
These options can be enabled by selecting the "Share Fellowship Experience and Luminance" button in the fellowship panel.
An Xp bonus is also available to players that choose the share experience option. This provides an incentive to hunt together as a fellowship. The table below gives the amount of xp each member will receive as well as the "extra" xp generated by the bonus.
|Number in Fellow||Member Share||XP Bonus|
For example, if three people each killed 1 creature worth 100,000xp and they were not in an xp sharing fellowship, they would each earn 100,000xp. If however they formed a fellow and each killed 1 creature, they would each earn 60% of all three kills, or 180,000xp.
Note: This bonus occurs only in groups where the players are within 5 levels of the group founder, or if all players in the group are above level 50.
Players that choose to share treasure allow all others in the fellowship to loot the corpses of Creatures that they have defeated.
This option is enabled by selecting the "Share Fellowship Loot" button in the fellowship panel.
Main article: Social Systems Panel
The fellowship panel is found as a tab within the main social systems panel group. This panel allows you to create a fellowship after selecting the various sharing options and giving the fellowship a name. After you have created the fellowship, you can then recruit other players into it. This panel also has buttons and features for managing an active fellowship such as a button to change the leader and a window for displaying the vital stats (health, stam and mana) of players in the fellow.
Players in your fellowship appear as green blips on the Radar. A triangle pointing up is the fellowship leader. A triangle pointing down is any other member.
Many Quests can only be completed with one or more fellowships either as a recommendation or as a necessity due to the quest's difficulty or mechanics such as lever pulling. Some quests also require that a fellowship is formed as a prerequisite before you actually can start.
Main article: Colosseum
The Colosseum is a dungeon of sorts that contains repeatable content geared towards fellowships. The main content are the arenas; stages of increasing difficulty that fellowships must fight through with the objective of reaching the end within an hour. Fellowships that beat the Colosseum get to access the Colosseum Vault containing many treasures.
When players first enter the Colosseum, they are in a staging area which is used by everyone to get their fellowships together, or to find a group to tag along with.
There are also other rooms separate from the arenas that contain Colosseum Bosses.
