So how does tempering and regrading work? I have no idea how to upgrade armor or what any of it means. Anyone have any useful guides? :)

Someone on reddit compiled what we currently know about the Auroria continent that will be added into the English release soon. It's a zone of hot and nasty PvP and reading this got me excited.

I've seen "wait for Auroria and build there" as a rejoinder to most arguments about land scarcity in populated servers and there are multiple threads here and on the official forums asking for more information.
The aim is to collate all the relevant info about housing in Auroria, so that people have some idea as to what to expect before the actual release in the coming weeks. I got into alpha during the final 3 weeks, and as such do not have first-hand knowledge about castles and housing on Auroria, so please correct me where needed and I'll update the info as I go.
From what I've read so far:

-Auroria is due for release in the coming weeks. Source
-Diamond Shores will not part of the initial release of content in Auroria. Source
-There will be 4 new zones to grab land from on Auroria: Calmlands - Temperate and Arid, Heedmar - Temperate and Arctic, Nuimari - Temperate and Arctic, and Marcala - Temperate and Arid.
-Auroria is perpetually a PvP zone with no peace times whatsoever, so anyone can kill anyone anywhere on the continent at any time.
-The pre-requisite to claiming housing land in this zone is for a guild to have activated the guard tower, as shown on the maps.
-To put things in perspective, a guild/alliance will need a miner at 50k proficiency in order to mine Anya pebbles from Anya veins (only found in Auroria) and a smelter at 20k proficiency to craft 100 Anya ingots and combine it with 50 Blood Archeum (40g each) to create a Purifying Archeum pack, which is used to activate a guard tower in an area, effectively claiming it for the guild.
-After claiming said area, the guild/alliance will need to build a castle around it.
-There are no crafting stations on the continent, so any packs needed for this and any other construction on Auroria will have to be brought in from the nearest convenient location (Growlgate Isle for the adventurous) or refining stations will need to be built on site.
-There are merchants, Mirage Isle portals, and Vendors in the zone however.
-If the guard tower is destroyed by an opposing faction, all structures within its zone of influence will be vulnerable to the new occupiers
-There are housing plots that fall within the influence of said guard tower and plots that fall without, but all taxes for housing in the zone are set by the occupying guild - apparently there all housing plots that are subject to the controlling guild's whims according to a comment below. Need verification.
-The guild that claimed the zone has priority for the land that falls within the range of influence of the guard tower, so if your plot is in their zone of influence, the occupying guild can effectively destroy your property at will
-Your property is protected from their whims if it falls outside of the zone of influence of the guard tower for the zone
-After 6 weeks following the initial claim, the Guard Tower can be sieged every 3 weeks and ownership can transfer hands, bringing with it increased risk of demolition for any properties that fall within the zone of influence of the Tower.
-Ideally, you want to be in a guild or alliance with the organisation and logistics available to field a full scale occupying force in a chosen zone in Auroria and use the land that comes with the territory.
-Else, you wait for a guild or alliance to activate the guard tower and build outside their zone of influence.
-Speaking for myself, I appreciate the level of planning and effort needed to build a house in Auroria, and wish all housing required something similar. Can't wait to build my 24 x 24 there!

So this weekend I wanted to find out if there was anything worth buying on the Loyalty tab of the marketplace. Turns out there is! There are instruments and other fashion items that I didn't really see the need for. But, the two chests you can buy for 15 loyalty points (points you earn by logging in every day as a patron) give you a random, but pretty worthwhile item as well as a handful of gold!

The last two chests I opened each gave me a Companion Crust. It's a food item that you can use on your pet/mount to give them 50000xp. That's a lot!

The other neat thing about that item?

YOU CAN TOTALLY CLICK ON SOMEONE ELSE'S DONKEY THAT LOOKS JUST LIKE YOURS AND BUMP UP THEIR LEVELS

AND THEN YOU CAN STAND THERE IN SHOCK, REALIZING THERE'S NOTHING YOU OR THEY CAN DO TO CHANGE WHAT JUST HAPPENED

ALL THAT XP IS NOW ON SOME RANDOM DUDE'S DONKEY

NOT YOURS

Ever wonder why there are constantly people sitting in the pews of the court house? 

Turns out they prevent the AFK timer from triggering. Keep in mind that only the pews work for this, not the other ergonomic chairs in the room. Can't see any free seats? Try upstairs.
