Jade Dynasty offers 3 Factions that each new player can choose from.
Your Faction determines what skills and gear are available to you, as well as determining your perceived role in society. While each faction can stand well on its own, in combination they are far more powerful.
Humans all start as Initiate and will determine their faction at LV 15 via Tanis Ka in Sunstream. Athans and Etherkins are born with the faction chosen. MD allows players to change their class, however, with various items from the [Shop].
