Two players belong to the same bevin.

Will both go to the same "instance" (I believe that's the term I've heard used) via their individual Relto city book and not thru Nexus?

If not, under what circumstances would two players be in the same instance?

Inquiring minds......need info! Thanks

Yes, theoretically, they are supposed to go to the same Ae'Gura instance when they use their respective Relto Brown City books.

The problem I've run into, is, if you picked up links to Ae'Gura, for example, to the gallery from Kadish Tolesa, you then got a Brown City book in your Relto. If you then change your Hood membership (join a new Hood) your links to Ae'Gura do not change. The Brown City book from Relto will still lead you to the old Bevin's instance of Ae'Gura.

So, if you're thinking of starting a new character, it might be a good idea to do some research on what Hood you want to join before collecting those links... Unless they've fixed this problem since I last tried it, but I don't think they did.

Ohhh...very interesting. Thanks for such a rapid reply.

As long as we are on the Bevin topic:

Can the Bevin one belongs to be renamed when there are other members?

There is no renaming. All bevins are someone's avatar.

It's a bug, but we should be able to change the name in the future. ;)

No plans at this time. The change is deliberate to avoid griefing.

hmmm...seems like a good idea. My bevin has a name but I don't know why. I figure someone invited me to join it awhile back. Is that likely right?

How DID it get named originally?

I have this exact problem.
But, and I will have to check, what happens if you go to the gallery through your Kadish link rather than the city book?

Another case; Going to a Buddies Relto, on to his Kadish then to the gallery; Just linking with the book in his Kadish took me to my instance, if he shared the book in his Kadish, I went to his instance.

Avatar creation. I ran around as The Institution for a time. URU Obsession was also someone's avatar, etc. As we have 5, once the Bevin exists, the avatar isn't used in-game.
