Okay, first off I'm not in a guild. Nor do I plan to be. I've gone through the entirety of Prophecies, I have six characters, I've gotten along just fine without a guild and don't care to change.
I bought Factions not too long ago. I just recently got to Tanglewood Copse. Nobody there will talk to me. I try to sell or buy stuff to the merchant and she says that unless I'm an ally of the Kurzicks I'd better go away before she calls the guard.
So this has got me wondering. How am I supposed to open up the NPCs in the Kurzick and Luxon outposts to be able to talk to them? How am I going to be able to buy the Kurzick armor for my Elementalist that I want? Is my gold somehow no good unless I'm allied with the Kurzicks? Am I now required to join a guild, just to be able to sell something in a Kurzick outpost? Because that would be kind of like a slap in the face. Is there anything I can do to align myself with a particular faction, or am I forced to join an alliance just to be able to get armor and sell my drops?

How do you talk to Kurzick or Luxon NPCs?

Okay... thanks for that info, that's a relief. What do I do to gain faction with each side?

You have the choice of joining Alliance Battles (but you have to be in a guild or a guest in a guild to do that) or do the quests in either sides (some are repeatable) that gives you factions.

Yeah, there's not really much you can do in Kurzick or Luxon outposts until you beat Sunjiang District and pick a side. Then you can do Fort Aspenwood or the Jade Quarry, or do various quests for Kurizck/Luxon faction.W/E20 Alaron Sefard Mo/Me20 Light Cleric

Quests or missions, usually. As soon as you advance the storyline enough to actually gain entrance to the real Kurzick/Luxon territories, you'll be able to lay up a bit of faction and start talking to their merchant/trader NPCs.
Also, just as a note, it's ONLY the merchant/trader NPCs that require faction to talk to. All the quest-giving NPCs will still give you their quests.

I've heard that some people have both Luxon and Kurzick armor for one character; I'm inferring from that that it's possible to switch sides in the game? Can you jump back and forth between sides as you wish by doing these Faction-giving missions?
Thanks for the information so far, by the way, it's helpful.

My way in the game was to:
1, Do all the luxon content and get all my characters to a point that allowed for a 10,000 luxon faction quest to be gained.
2. Spend this faction on jade / keys.
3. Do kurzik content and get all my characters to a point that allowed for a 10,000 kurzik faction quest to be gained.
4. Spend faction on amber / alliance
5. Only have 1 type of faction generating at one time as if you recind one faction you will loose the other one. Its best to have the other at 0.
