THIS EVENT INCORPORATES PVP Stealable Favors of Ithioch are stealable! If a player successfully hits you (it doesn't matter whether it's an Attack or Steal), there will be a chance of them taking a portion of your Favors. The number they get will be based upon the number you have, and the size difference between the two of you. There are ways to bank and protect your Favors. SEE BELOW Banking Stealable Favors You will be able to protect up to 2,000 of your Stealable Favors each day by purchasing Chest of Secure Fate from the Marketplace. Purchasing the Chest of Secure Fate will convert 500 of your Stealable Favors into 500 ***Banked*** - Stealable Favor of Ithioch. AT THE END OF THE HUNT once stealing has been disabled, these ***Banked*** - Stealable Favors of Ithioch will once again be converted into Stealable Favors, which are what determine PvP Event Rewards at the end of the event.
