    Default New Chronicle flags you PvP

    Not a big deal but might be unintended.

    When you zone into the Chronicle : Kaaz'Gfuu you get flagged for PvP

    Ugh, that's annoying.

    This leads to my general observation: I don't think there should exist a mechanic other than "explicit player choice" for flagging.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Okay, in my defense your Honor it was very early for me as it seems to be a herp derp moment

    The Chronicle was on the Omega shard which is the PvP test shard so it seems if the game sends you to a PvP shard to use up the instance, you'll flag PvP as per that shard's flag

    Indeed, while cross-shard visiting in the 2.3, you won't follow your home server's PvP rule any more but the one of the shard you are currently on. I did the chronicle on the PTS and hopefully, we were both Defiant but I can see that this could bring some problems. Although I love this behaviour, it should only apply in the open world and not in instances. This needs a fix.

    Thanks for identifying this problem and for everyone's feedback in other threads. We're currently looking at a code fix for the issue, but failing that, we may rename the instance to Chronicle/Warfront: Queen's Gambit.

    Well, if it's following shard flagging rules... oh, but those are per-zone, so even on a PvP shard, not every chronicle will flag you, just some.

    Default Aren't chronicles solo (or duo)?

    It's my understanding that Chronicles are limited to one or two players (you or your group of 2). Unless I'm going to be encountering random opposing faction players, I don't really see why it matters if I'm pvp flagged inside the chronicle instance? The npc's that are intended to attempt to kill me are going to do so whether I'm flagged or not. Is the game not unflagging you when it returns you to the "normal" world outside the chronicle?

    What if the two players are on different factions? You can't be grouped with the opposite faction while flagged..

    That would be a problem then -- although it would be interesting to try entering the chronicle while grouped with a person of the opposite faction, just to see what happens.
