In-game description: "Faction Coins are found randomly by clicking the landscape or collected passively by your assistants. You can use these to make Royal Exchanges or, if this is your faction, to purchase alliance pacts."
Faction Coins (or FCs) are a special type of resource necessary to purchase faction-specific items such as Trade Treaties, Faction Upgrades, Heritages, Research Points etc., and to make Royal Exchanges.
Faction Coin Types
The Fairy Heritage costs Fairy FCs, the Goblin research points cost Goblin FCs, and so forth. Alignments and Factions that do not have their own Faction Coin type are defined a combination instead: Good alignment uses all the good aligned faction's FCs, the Evil alignment uses all the evil faction's FCs, and Neutral Factions are related to one Good and one Evil faction's FC.
|Alignment / Faction ⇔ FC Type|
|Good Alignment||Fairy, Elven, Angel, Dwarf (All Good FCs)|
|Evil Alignment||Goblin, Undead, Demon, Drow (All Evil FCs)|
|Neutral Alignment||Fairy, Elven, Angel, Goblin, Undead, Demon, Dwarven, Drow (All FCs)|
Where to Find Faction Coins
Faction Coins can be found randomly, with a percentage of chance, by clicking the background, casting certain spells, excavating, scrying, or gathered passively by Assistants, which have a base find chance of 2%.
Unlocking Prestige Faction Coins
The Vanilla Faction Coins are available by default from the beginning of the game, but Prestige Faction coins require to be unlocked along with their Faction. Once one of the Prestige factions is unlocked, the Underworld Diplomacy upgrade becomes available, and purchasing it will unlock the Dwarven and Drow Faction Coins. (This is only required before R3.)
You are guaranteed one faction coin for every 100% chance, plus a chance to get another extra one depending on the remaining percentage. For example, with 137% chance you will always get one coin, and one more 37% of the time.
