    Default Porticulum Masters as Town Criers

    When rift events trigger in the various zones, it would be nice if the Porticulum Masters in the unaffected zones were to announce the events. Consider it as an action of the NPCs to call for reinforcements etc.

    Just a thought.

    On that subject, how hard would it be to split the inzone announcements such that Defiants not see/hear the Guardian announcements and vice versa? If you're in zone, you can see where the invasions are headed via the map. I like the flavor of the NPC's yelling out in the zone to direct their own factions, I just don't think we need to see both sides.

    I like seeing both sides. It will be helpful when they get rid of the artificial grouping barrier so Defiants and Guardians will be able to actually play with one another

    Disagree. I like the barrier, and I hope it never goes away. Otherwise there is no point to the factions, and it destroys part of the story and lore.


    As for OP, I'm not against that. But, again from story and lore, how would they spread the word? I think it would be handy, but I don't think it's a necessary feature. Plus, with the amount of invasions happening all the time, I think it would be border-line spam.
    Also, I don't mind seeing both sides announcements. Either way, if I'm near them, they'll aggro and kill me. So it's nice to know, even if it's just to avoid that area.

    How? They simply send messages via the portals to the nearest ones, who do the same.
    Why? To defeat the invaders

    Thus... lore/rpg is ok. A little bit useless, as you can see the "event" image on the region when it happens.

    You got half of my point but missed the other.

    I'm recommending that if there's a zone event in IPP for instance, the PM's in the other zones, or even maybe just Sanctum/Meridian announce the event/invasion in order to effectively recruit reinforcements.
