Warning: The following text contains spoilers relating to the plot of Factions.

This is a listing of primary quests and missions in the Factions campaign.

Plot Missions

All plot missions are Cooperative Missions.

Note for foreign characters: Characters from other campaigns will join the plot at the third mission, Vizunah Square. To reach the first two missions, foreign characters can simply walk into the town at any time. To reach Shing Jea Island, talk to First Mate Xiang in Kaineng Docks. Foreign characters cannot earn skill points from the two Shing Jea Island missions in Normal Mode, but will gain the full mission rewards in Hard Mode.

Unwaking Waters and Vizunah Square, on the other hand, which have two different starting outposts, are actually single missions and must only be done once each.
