**Unleashing the Power of New World of Warcraft: Warbands**

Warbands, a feature introduced in Amazon’s New World of Warcraft (NWOW), offers an exciting new way for players to explore Aeternum and build communities with their alts. This section is designed to help you harness the potential of this innovative mechanic.

What are Warbands?

Warbands are player-led factions that allow you to group multiple alts (alternate characters) under a single banner. They offer numerous benefits, such as shared progress, increased bonuses, and social interaction.

Benefits of Creating a Warband

  1. Shared Progress: Warbands enable you to level up your alts more efficiently by sharing quest progress between them.

    No need to grind through the same content multiple times!

  2. Bonus System: Warbands offer bonus rewards based on the number of members in your faction. These bonuses can include increased resource gathering, combat prowess, or even unique cosmetic items.
  3. Community Building: Warbands provide a platform for players to connect with each other and build a community. This social aspect adds an extra layer of fun and enjoyment to the game.

To create your own Warband, follow these simple steps:

  1. Reach level 20 on your main character.
  2. Speak with Kaela Sunstrider in Mariset Bay or any other Faction Ambassador to begin the process.
  3. Choose a name and select a banner design for your Warband.

  4. Set your Warband’s emblem, motto, and recruitment policy.
  5. Start inviting alts to join your Warband!

Joining an Existing Warband
