Avoid being killed by:
Having a good build
Press [g] map to guild hall
Press [m] map to location
If your in an explore location then mapping to GH or save point will not count as a kill. Mind you getting to survivor on Factions is fairly easy. Its getting beyond to level 2 that isn't.
Unless this point has already been brought up.
Should leaving a explore zone by a means other than a gate count as a "death" on survivor? [Currently 40% in favour 40% against and 20% in favour of those who go linkdead and what they think!]
