Rank-Up Explanation and Guide

Post by Webmaster on Wed Sep 30, 2015 3:41 pm

Rank Guide of NW

Below you will find a simple explanation of the ranks one can go for and what perks each offers. Be aware that to be approved at a higher rank means to miss out on perks a previous rank has to offer. For example...

Joe starts as an Academy Student and manages to reach Jounin. All perks from previous ranks stay with Joe (from AS-Jounin). Meanwhile Tom decided to start at Jounin rather than work his way up. This means Tom only benefits from the jounin perk because he did not rp at any other rank (no, flashbacks do not count). Naturally Joe's Jounin would have a bigger edge on Tom's based on Joe having actually roleplayed through the ranks.

This list is subject to updates be sure to stay posted on changes.

D-Rank are also given an immunity to being killed or maimed or experimented on. Kidnapping is allowed but no harm (including experiments and dna sample extraction) can come to the D-Rank in question.
