These forums are a place for players to talk about Funcom games, discuss and share knowledge, and engage in role-playing.
In order to maintain the boards and be able to provide feedback, we must reserve the right to enforce certain standards and rules. Please understand this forum is owned and operated by Funcom. All rules are to be enforced by moderators, admins, and staff at their sole discretion. Moderators, admins, and staff reserve the right to take action against you for any reason as needed.
All Social Guidelines apply to all game categories unless otherwise noted. By using these forums you agree to follow these guidelines in order to maintain a healthy community. Thank you for reading!
BE GOOD TO ONE ANOTHER.
The golden rule is that this should be a positive place for discussion.
Treat others as you would like to be treated.
MODERATED CONTENT RULE
If your post or topic is unlisted, removed, or locked by a moderator or staff, please do not re-post the moderated content elsewhere. The original content likely violated one or more of our social guidelines and had action taken against it, and it doesn’t help anyone to try and re-post it. If you had content moderated and would like to discuss it, please submit a ticket at https://www.funcom.com/help and ask for me, Andy B.
BASIC HARASSMENT RULE
We welcome open discussion and divergent viewpoints here. We simply ask that you keep your contributions level-headed and without vitriol. If you need to get heated about something, get heated about an idea, not a person. If someone insults another or makes an offensive statement about a group of people, do not respond in kind; just report the post.
- “F*ck you”
- “You’re an idiot/moron/[insert directed insult here]”
- “You obviously don’t speak english/lack reading comprehension/[insert personal attack here]”
Your posts should include content relevant to the gameplay, story, and worlds of each relevant category. Feel free to speak about lore, characters, and features.
Topics and replies with vague or no context or lacking information will be removed because there is nothing to discuss. This includes bumping a thread for the sake of bumping it, especially if a topic has gone quiet. There’s a reason it went quiet.
Examples of posts that break the Content Rule:
- Screenshot with no obvious focus, if even there is one
- Short, nonsensical posts
- “I quit” posts
- “bump /15char”
Additionally, please do not post any content on the forums containing the following:
- Inappropriate or offensive content, warez or leaked content or anything else not safe for work
- Key generators
- Console emulators
- Cheating, hacking, game exploits
- Threats of violence or harassment, even as a joke
- Soliciting, begging, auctioning, raffling, selling, advertising, referrals
- Racism, discrimination
- Abusive language, including swearing
- Illicit drugs
- Religious, political, and other “prone to huge arguments” threads
CUSTOMER SERVICE CONCERNS RULE
If you are unsatisfied with your encounter with a Customer Service Representative (aka GM) in any of our games or are unsatisfied with the result of your petition or ticket, please do not post details of your ticket or petition. We are not able to assist nor comment on ticket issues in an open forum, as your issue may contain sensitive private information.
Please instead visit https://www.funcom.com/help/ and ask for your case to be reviewed.
Posts containing details or information about your private request to Customer Service may be subject to immediate removal.
Trolling is posting to provoke others, luring them to flame or rant. Trolling is sometimes done involuntarily, so please be considerate when posting. Trolls hinder discussion and reflect poorly on this community as a whole; don’t feed them. “Trolling" means that the user misleads or antagonizes others or acts overtly contrarian.
Examples include but are not limited to baiting comments; comments intended to get a rise out another user, harassing users through private messages.
“Excessive” trolling typically means the above except where the ill behavior continues to be an issue over the course of many posts and across multiple topics. For example, if a user’s trolling (which is defined and acted upon by moderators and staff) spills out into multiple topics worth of discussion, that can be considered “Excessive” trolling - in case you see that on a suspension or silence reason.
PROHIBITED OR ILLEGAL CONTENT RULE (a.k.a. don’t be a jerk rule)
Posting of Illegal material, personal information (i.e. “doxxing”), spam threads, and malicious links are prohibited.
Don’t harass anyone, threaten anybody with real-life violence or other actions, encourage sexual misconduct, nor organize a brigade on users or communities.
Bigotry, racism, discrimination, and other forms of hate have absolutely no home here. Personal attacks on based on race, orientation, etc. will not be tolerated and will be taken action against at the discretion of staff and moderators.
All such posts will be removed and are considered major violations. Violations like this can and will result in a permanent forum ban.
EXPLOIT DISCUSSION RULE
Do not describe how an exploit works or can be abused. NEVER explain how to perform an exploit publicly.
An exploit is a bug that grants a user an unnatural or an unintended benefit in the game for a character. Meaning, it’s a bug or design error that makes it possible for characters to fight monsters, solve quests, earn money, get items, etc. that normally should be out of that character’s reach or not possible in the first place. Basically, exploiting can be described as cheating.
Exploits and an explanation on how to reproduce the issue should be sent directly to staff or moderators.
There is a mentality that suggests publicly exposing exploits somehow results in getting it fixed faster. Not only is this false, but you are actively causing harm to the game and community by making what could have been a relatively small issue into a problem for everyone.
Posts doing so will be removed on sight and the poster may have action taken against them both on the forum and in-game (where applicable).
An accusation against another person’s or organization’s integrity, business practices, etc. is only allowed if the accuser has sufficient evidence. This is to prevent doomsaying, panic, and misinformation.
Any submission or comment that lacks sufficient accusation evidence will be locked or removed with zero tolerance.
Do not engage in “vigilante justice” nor encourage members of the community to do the same. Please do not “name and shame” other users; DM staff if you have an issue with another user or player in the community.

- “This guy scammed me, don’t trade with him”
