There are two Factions in Hordes.io: Vanguard and Bloodlust.
Players from opposite factions will be hostile to each other. Defeating enemy players grants Gold and Fame. Each faction has a boss (Vanguard's boss is called King, Bloodlust's is called Leader), a large mob with high damage and health, that can be defeated for fame, gold and experience as well two smaller mobs (called Wardens) around it. Each faction controls two different areas, one where the bosses are located and another separate area that is guarded by smaller, but still powerful mobs.
There are global leader boards that feature the best performing players of both factions regardless of server. Bloodlust players are shown in a red color while Vanguard players are displayed as blue.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Vanguard[edit | edit source]
The Vanguards are people of order and honour. They are the knights in shining armour and the people who keep the world in peace. The world was once in chaos when the monsters suddenly started appearing all around the world. A small group of monster slayers formed the Vanguard to make a name of themselves. Eventually, they started to be hailed as heroes and recieved many requests to be part of the Vanguard. They realised that they would be able to train these people and be able to keep peace in the world through the elimination of monsters.
They accepted all the requests to join the Vanguard and started to advertise and started hiring the people from the West. With the help of the Warriors, they were able to make a fortune from the death of monsters. With this, they upgraded their equipment and hired the people from the South. The people in the South were reluctant to join however, their homeland was being invaded by the monsters. They accepted and were hired as monster slayers for the Vanguard.
People from the East started to move after hearing the stories of the Vanguard attempting to eradicate the monsters from the world and came to assist with their Magic. The mysterious man from the North came and taught the Spirit Arts and taught people to use the power of the spirits to kill monsters.
Bloodlust[edit | edit source]
The Bloodlust is a mysterious group that seemed to come out from nowhere. While the Vanguards reigned, the Bloodlusts suddenly came and started killing people. The Bloodlusts were a group that amuses themselves with the deaths of others. There are no known reasons as to why the Bloodlusts kill others; however, they have been seen to be assisting in the eradication of the monsters, too. They are ruthless and kill just about anybody they see without reason and have disrupted the peace the Vanguard has made in the world. They have once again started chaos and panic. The Bloodlusts have all of what the Vanguard has, Archers, Warriors, Shamans and such. How or why they agreed to join the Bloodlusts is unknown. There are no scrolls regarding the Bloodlusts' history. They are an unknown group that is hostile to everything.
All was going good, monsters were getting killed. But then suddenly, the Bloodlust was made. War broke out between the Bloodlusts and the Vanguards. The Vanguards were astonished to see that the Bloodlusts also had people from around and managed to reach to a stalemate with the Vanguards.
