Guild Wars Factions, globally released on April 28, 2006, (exactly one year after the original Guild Wars was released) is the official product title of ArenaNet's second campaign in the Guild Wars world. It is also referred to as Chapter Two, Campaign Two, Factions Campaign, or more commonly: Factions.
Guild Wars Factions is a stand alone product and doesn't require the player to already own the original Guild Wars (Prophecies Campaign). However, the two campaigns can be linked by adding the Factions retail key to an already existing Prophecies account and players from both campaigns will be able to interact. They will be able to compete in PvP and players who own both campaigns are able to take any Prophecies characters that have reached Lion's Arch over to the lands of Factions. Also any factions character that reaches Kaineng Center will be able to go to Lion's Arch (if Prophecies is unlocked), Kamadan (if Nightfall is unlocked) and Boreal Station (if Eye of the North is unlocked).
The stories of the Factions Campaign and the Prophecies Campaign link at Lion's Arch, where Canthan merchants were already present in the Prophecies Campaign.
The Factions Campaign takes place in Cantha, the home continent of the sailing merchant empire, with an Asian theme.
The backstory revolves around Shiro Tagachi, a former bodyguard of the righteous emperor of Cantha 200 years ago. Shiro murdered the emperor and was killed for it. As he died, he let out a wail that turned the seas into solid jade and petrified the forests. The game takes place some 200 years later, when he returns from the grave to wreak his vengeance upon the Canthans, becoming the antagonist of the story.
The game is currently available in two editions:
The following features were released with Guild Wars Factions:
|• • •|
The survivor factions were created on the 91st day of the Oceanic Flight 815 survivors on the Island. Each of the factions was led by Jack Shephard and John Locke, as the crew from Naomi's freighter began coming to the Island. The split was based on a difference of opinion on whether the freighter crew were coming to rescue them (as Jack believed), or for more nefarious unknown reasons (as Locke believed). ("The Beginning of the End")
Jack believed that the people on the freighter were coming to the Island to rescue them and that Locke was a dangerously insane person who would do anything to stop them from leaving. Those who followed Jack had various motives for doing so. Most hoped for rescue, others were loyal to Jack, while still others followed Jack out of distrust toward Locke.
Locke, motivated by his vision of Walt, believed that the people on the freighter were a threat to the lives of everyone. Many of those who followed him were motivated by Charlie's warning and a sense of loyalty to, Charlie given the circumstances of his death, and some simply had nothing to return to off the Island.
Tensions between Jack and Locke reached a breaking point on their 91st day on the Island, when Locke threw a knife in Naomi's back to stop her from contacting the freighter and threatened to shoot Jack. Locke ended up wondering off the scene, leaving Naomi bleeding to death, and letting Jack make the call and contacting a representative of Naomi's expedition. ("Through the Looking Glass") Shortly after, Jack told Kate he will kill Locke if he comes back. When the group from the radio tower met up with the group from the beach, Jack crept up on Locke, got him down, put a gun to his head, and pulled the trigger. When the gun proved empty, he started beating Locke and had to be pulled off by Sayid and Sawyer. ("The Beginning of the End")
In front of the entire surviving community, Locke made his case and declared that anyone who "wanted to live" should come with him. Jack responded that nobody would go with Locke, as "they're not crazy." In response to Jack's remark, Hurley spoke up for Locke and specifically talked about Charlie's warning. Jack did not respond and did not attempt to address the warning. Hurley went to Locke's side, followed by several other survivors, more prominently Sawyer and Claire. Rousseau, Alex, Karl and a captive Ben joined Locke as well.
Locke's group was later attacked by the freighter's mercenary team, who landed on the Island to obtain Ben. ("The Shape of Things to Come") Most of Locke's group was killed during the attack, and those who survived rejoined Jack's group at the beach. Jack's group was joined by the science team sent from the freighter; at first, the addition consisted of Frank, Miles and Faraday, while Charlotte was held captive by Locke. Later on, though, Miles was traded for Charlotte. Eventually, Miles rejoined Jack's group.
Several exceptions of the surviving members of the factions are Ben, who left the Island ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3"), Locke, who joined the Others as their leader and Claire, who was last seen in Jacob's cabin. ("Cabin Fever") ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")

||Benjamin Linus||Alive||Asked specifically to go with Locke.

In "There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3", Ben left the Island, but returned on Ajira Flight 316 in "Namaste".|

1. One of four members of the survivor background cast who were actually visible in "The Beginning of the End" aligning with Locke's group.
2. Depicted shot and killed by Keamy's attack team ("The Shape of Things to Come")
3. Doug, credited by ABC Medianet in "The Shape of Things to Come".
4. Not depicted in "The Shape of Things to Come" in the aftermath of Keamy's attack, and not seen since. Fate unknown, although some fans presume this character dead.
5. Identified as Jerome from dialog in a previous episode
6. Steve - background cast member, although not seen in "The Beginning of the End" or an episode of Season 4 including Keamy's attack ("The Shape of Things to Come"), but named by the 4/19/08 podcast to have aligned with Locke out of dislike for Jack and to get away from the beach. Fate unknown. Because this information is based on a podcast, the inclusion of Steve is considered to be semi-canonical. However seen alive on beach in later episode and was on the Zodiac, his fate is currently unknown (portrayed by Dustin Watchman).
Also, Hurley and Claire seemed to be taking care of Vincent at the time of the split. In "Confirmed Dead", the GPS transponder of Charlotte Lewis was attached to Vincent and he was allowed to run free to mislead anyone looking for her. He encountered Jack's group in "Confirmed Dead" and was seen at the beach with Jack's group in "The Other Woman", and then again on the beach in "Something Nice Back Home" and "There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3".
The following characters should by logic be remaining as living survivors of the crash of Flight 815, and therefore part of either Jack's or Locke's groups after the split in "The Beginning of the End", but have not been explicitly depicted or clearly visible in episodes of Season 4 after the split. These consist largely of unseen characters, expanded universe characters (see explanation below), stunt actors, past background cast, and one-time guest (speaking) characters.
The six following unnamed survivors should also still be alive on the Island; it is possible that some of these may be the same characters as some of those named above.
Furthermore the phenomenon of unnamed Flight 815 survivor extras who do not appear in these post-split episodes is merely an artifact from vagaries of the irregular hiring of such non-salaried extras, mirroring the same phenomenon at the beach camp. The number of individuals in the pool of every extra who has ever appeared on the beach dating back to Season 1 exceeds the "official" number of survivors. Therefore it is likely that in future post-split episodes, some extras will suddenly appear in Jack's or Locke's group, while others disappear.

The term "faction", in its original meaning, refers to a game-defined collection of NPC characters who share an affiliation with a race, government, or organization. By completing quests and killing NPCs, players can affect their standing with a particular faction, causing members of that faction to treat the player differently. Faction is primarily used as a reference to the GCW factions: the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance. These are the only two factions that a player can actively join and announce their affiliation with.
Viewing faction standing is accomplished via the Factions tab on your Character Sheet. Standing with each listed faction will be a number ranging from 5000 to -5000; this number governs how NPCs react to you. The lower the number, the more hostile NPCs of that faction will be towards you. The higher the number, the more they consider you to be an ally. If a faction is not listed, none of your actions have resulted in status changes with the organization. To raise faction standings with any group, you must kill that faction's enemies.
Very high standing with a faction will cause that faction's NPCs to treat you passively, even if they are normally aggressive (red). Very low standing will cause most NPCs to attack you on sight, even if they are normally passive.
Most NPCs belonging to a faction's enemy will attack that faction's NPCs on sight. If an NPC sees you attacking a faction enemy, it will usually assist you in the fight. Factional NPCs will also assist NPC allies engaged in combat.

These anarchists believe that all living beings have the right to govern themselves and that no authority (specifically, no government) should invade anyone's individual space. Believers in personal freedom, pacifists unless provoked, the Aakuan are dangerous only to those who invade their territories. However, they're easily agitated and consider anyone walking near their territories to be invading.
Their doctrines, though extreme, find many followers on fiercely independent Corellia. Aakuans take their name from the old Corellian term aa'kua, "respect" (literally "respecting space").
Afarathu are separatist Selonians, and hate all other species. They would especially like to drive the Drall and the Humans from what they consider to be their home worlds (including Corellia and Talus). See Selonians.
Enemies: Tusken Raider
Alkhara was a notorious bandit who roamed the Tatooine wastes using the B'omarr palace as his base for thirty-four years; he shared the palace with the remaining B'omarr Monks while he ravaged unwary moisture farmers.
He allied his band of thieves with the Sand People long enough to use their strength and ferocity to wipe out a police garrison. He then killed all of the Sand People that had helped him. It was this cruel act that created the feud between Sand People and humans, a feud which continued for centuries after Alkhara's death. When the Sand People sought to exact revenge on him, he fled deep into to the B'omarr palace.
The current incarnation of the Alkhara bandits was formed under a new leadership by several Tatooinians who had been forced from their home by Sand People. They wage a constant war with the Tusken Raiders, and pillage local villages and moisture farms for supplies.
Enemies: Followers of Lord Nyax, Lost Aqualish Regiment

A two-bit group of smugglers and pirates operating in the corellian sector who have twin home bases -- one on Talus, the other on Tralus. They cling to the bottom rung of the criminal ladder.

The Cobral family was a group of smugglers and black market dealers who took over the planetary government of a planet called Frego. They ruled the planet quite well for some time until one of the children of the family had his brother killed to ensure his place as head of the family. The Cobral family lost their power and authority shortly before the Battle of Naboo, but some members of the organization fled to Rori. Not long after, the two brothers who committed the murder (among other crimes) were sent to prison.

Lord Nyax is an ancient Corellian Ghost whose name was invoked to scare children. When Darth Vader came to Corellia to destroy the Jedi, this was the name he was given by terrified citizens. Nyax's followers hate Jedi and all they stand for, and look to slaughter them as Lord Nyax did when he possessed the body of Darth Vader. The followers aren't particularly Imperially oriented, but believe Vader to have been inhabited by Nyax's ghost, and so treat him somewhat reverentially.

In the past, Gungans took great pains to avoid contact with their Naboo neighbors, and even built huge underwater cities to escape contact. Since the failed invasion by the Trade Federation, the Gungans have begun to co-exist with their human friends. A few stubborn holdouts remain on both sides.
The most notable holdouts to the peace are the Rorian Gungans.
The "Rorian Gungans" are a group of gungans that relocated to Rori shortly after the peace brokered between Boss Nass and Queen Amidala as a result of the Battle of Naboo. Rorian Gungans were violently opposed to any alliance between humans and Gungans. Living in relative isolation on Rori, they have become territorial, paranoid, and increasingly violent. They are now likely to attack any beings who come into their territory on sight.

Sand People, or "Tusken Raiders", are primitive desert nomads and killers adept at surviving the harsh desert environment.
Tusken Raiders are named for their bloody overthrow of Fort Tusken on Tatooine. Their origin is unknown, but they’ve fought against the humans since they moved to Tatooine. Since most of their technology is stolen from settlers, it's not rare to find hundred year old rifles still being used by them.
Tusken Raiders are a threat to all, primarily settlers and travelers. Most inhabitants of Tatooine believe that until the Sand People are wiped out, no one is safe.
