Global Quests are Special Quests which allow you to cooperate with your fellow Archons in order to complete Global Objectives. Participation is optional, however the outcome of each Global Quest can alter the Aegean storyline, result in permanent changes to the game map, and unlock rewards or new game features for participating players.
Participation in Global Quests will usually require Archons to take on dangerous tasks collecting as many Quest items as possible by attacking or defending Persian Positions. After Archons attack or defend Persian Positions, the Quest items you've collected will added to the global total. All Global Quests are voluntary, but if successful, all contributing Archons will be rewarded in proportion to their contribution.
All Archons are divided into Classes according to the respective Level: Novice, Amateur, Professional, Veteran, Master, and Expert. Your reward from Global Quests depends on which Class you belong to when you engage in the Quest. Thus, even novice players who occupy the top positions in their Class can receive large rewards - not just the experienced players. You and your fellow Archons are divided into classes before each Global Quest and you will remain locked in that Class bracket for its duration, even if you level up during the Quest!
You can only earn Glory Points (IPs) by attacking or defending Persian Positions during active Global Quests. You cannot purchase them using Timber, Bronze, Grain, or Drachmas. You also cannot exchange them or send them as a gift to other players. Other players cannot raid GPs from your City. Currently GPs are used to increase Galley Capacity and Increase Number of Contact Slots. However, new features will be added soon which will require the use of GPs.
