There's been lots of groups working on this lately Mardella since so many people need the factions still. I plan on helping out tomorrow after raids too. Just keep an ear out and if you feel like setting up a group for it, you can easily start the Pez tasks in direwind with just about anyone as a tank and no slows. :D

I'm thinking of running a mini raid sunday to help people get it. There's also a lot of help in the Quest section and stickies in the Raid Information forum about stuff for members.

No, for ashengate you need ally with both sides and vergalid flag to be able to loot. We'll be able to raid in 85% at least some who have nothing. If you read my post about raiding there in June in the new forum/guide section called: Frostcrypt and Ashengate Factioning Guides and How-tos, that explains more. I don't know who set it up, but its down a ways on the forums.

Also, on the Ashengate side you don't need any specific missions, you can mix and match any to reach ally. Frostcrypt is slightly more strict.

I am not sure how far you guys are into FC factioning but the easiest way to get it done by mass is doing the 24 man pickup raid Kangur (or whatever that big spiders name is). Its a 24 man hit with a 2 day lockout. Someone needs to be ally to get the raid and when its completed they need to zone out of the instance to hail the quest giver. It is the biggest faction boost I have seen so far and easily done with a pickup raid of 20+. He drops some halfway decent loot and the hit takes about 30 min start to finish. Maybe you guys have been farming this guy but it makes FC faction very easy to get. Also have to do this for the letters of evidence for another raid.

We've done him 4-5 times maybe more pn our pickup nights, but not recently. Maybe every 2 months or so. I do want to do more there after we're firmly in ashengate. Likely we'll end up someday splitting a raid after we can beat Udengar and making sure more have this.
