Glory Points Guide - Including AP to GP Repeatable Quests

GUIDE UPDATED FOR ERESHKIGAL’S WRATH CHANGES.

mceclip0.png

What is this guide about, and what are Glory Points?

Glory Points (GP) are used to calculate rank for 1-Star Officer and above abyss ranks. They are denoted by a red “G” in game, similar to the yellow “A” for abyss points. GP must be gained in specific ways and differs from AP in several key areas. Please read this guide for more information and feel free to ask questions for further clarification so that we can expand this guide.

What is the main difference between Abyss Points and Glory Points?

The main difference is in the way that ranks are determined. A player’s Abyss Points will determine Abyss Rank for the Soldier ranks – that is, between Rank 9 and Rank 1.

Beyond this, GP will be the determining factor for 1-Star Officer and above. GP cannot be spent and does not decrease upon death, but it is periodically reset to ensure the most active players are at the top.

Characters can still spend AP on relevant items as before, and AP can still be gained and lost in the same ways. For characters above 1-Star Officer, changes in AP amount will not affect their rank. GP scales differently, so GP amounts seen in game will be much lower than current AP values.

What are the main changes, then?

The main points of the change can be summarized as below:

  • Players need to be active in order to maintain high GP
  • GP can be gained in only a few particular ways
  • AP is not a factor when determining the higher ranks
  • Acquisition and loss / spending of AP will remain mostly the same
  • GP is periodically reset, allowing the ranks to repopulate.


How can I get Glory Points?

Glory points can be obtained in the following ways / places:

  • Winning or losing fortress sieges in Lakrum and the Abyss.
  • Killing enemy NPCs during fortress sieges in Lakrum and the Abyss.
  • GP Quests

-Other Frequently Asked Questions-

When will there be more opportunities to gain GP? What about (x method)?

The methods listed in this guide are currently comprehensive. We will update the guide if more methods become available.

How will this affect server transfer eligibility?

Currently, GP is limited at 7,000 for server transfers. Characters can still transfer if they agree to forfeit any amount above this. 

How does the GP reset work?

GP is converted into Gold Ingots at a rate of 500 to 1, rounding up. Currently, the reset is done every 4 weeks. For more information, visit the forums guide here.

Can I obtain GP even if our siege / defense is unsuccessful?

Yes. GP may still be rewarded depending on the level of contribution.

Can I gain GP from monsters or from other players via PvP, like I can gain AP now from killing enemies in the field?

Some monsters that spawn only during fortress sieges will give GP when killed. However, normal PvP and killing monsters will not reward Glory Points.

What rank do I need to be in order to earn GP?

You can gain GP at any rank. Although rank calculations for GP don't occur below 1-Star Officer, there is no limit on the ranks that can acquire GP.
