Tried a few different campaigns last night, but didn’t know what selecting as home meant or why/if I need to do it. I dont want to get stuck in a campaign where my alliance is completely helpless though (2/3 i tried last night DC was being obliterated)

    Homing a campaign means your AP gained counts towards the end of campaign rewards (some gold, transmute stones, mainly). You need to home a campaign anytime before the end of the campaign and then earn at least 25k AP to hit Tier 1.

    There was a time in the history of the game when your "home" campaign was one of a limited number you could actually enter. (There was also a concept of "guest" campaign at that point, so the number was 2 or 3 rather than 1.) However, that is NOT the case now. Your choice of "Home" campaign, to my knowledge, only affects two things:
    • End-of-campaign rewards, as noted above.
    • Whether or not the part of the Alliance War UI that gives you campaign scoring stats works when you're outside Cyrodiil.

    So does the game only start counting my AP gain when I home a campaign? Or can i play in a campaign from day one, earn lets say 200k AP, and home it on the last day and get rewards for my 200k AP? Do I need to home a campaign now, or anytime for max rewards?

    To add to this, the end of campaign rewards for tier 1 include a transmutation geode that holds 50 crystals. Best for banking on an alt (accept rewards on that alt) for when you need to transmute items past the cap of what we can store.
