Nodes exist all throughout the world and the location of said node will determine its type; but this type will be... seen at the first stage of development when the first stage when a node propagates real-time assets in the world; is basically these NPCs, these merchants that come into an area and they offer services and/or you know of stores or whatever the deal may be. You will see the flavor of the node from those merchants. So if it's a military node you'll see military people. If it's... an economic node you'll see merchants. If it's a scientific one you'll see scholars; and if it's a divine one you'll see priests and clerics. So players will have a very firm understanding of which node is which type in order to know how they want to progress.[1]Steven Sharif

Nodes are assigned one of four (4) node types, each of which contain unique specializations.[2]

  • Players will be able to identify the type of a node at its first stage of development (Expedition) based on its NPC population.[1]
Node type.[2] Specialization.[2] NPCs.[2]
Divine nodes Faith and skill/equipment augment focuses Priests
Economic nodes Trade and merchant focuses Merchants
Military nodes Combat and class training focuses Guards
Scientific nodes Artisan and construction focuses Scholars

Node types are predetermined and are the same across all servers.[2]

For example, if a level 4 Scientific Node is destroyed, it will become a Level 0 Scientific Node. It will never be any other Node Type other than a Scientific Node. The location of these Types relates to the influences of the area around the Node.[2]Margaret Krohn

Node types affect various services and systems at each level of node advancement.[2]

Node benefits

Different types of nodes have specific ultimate bonuses.[3]

Node government

Node governments are chosen from a node's citizenry when a node reaches stage 3 (Village).[5] The method of choosing the government and its mayor depends on the node's type.[3][2]
