Frontline is a PvP challenge which engages three teams of adventurers, each team representing one of the three Grand Companies. Teams consist of up to 24 players in an alliance, allowing for a grand total of 72 players in a single battle.
Success on the front line will depend heavily not only on individual skill, but on your ability to work as a team.

* Allagan tomestones will only be rewarded to players who are level 50 or higher.
* In the event that your affiliated team previously ranked third, PvP EXP, Series EXP, and Wolf Marks earned will be increased by 10% for each subsequent third-place ranking, up to a maximum of 50%. This bonus will carry over to the next match upon ranking second, and be reset entirely upon ranking first.
Accumulating PvP EXP raises PvP rank. Certain ranks will also award players with special achievements.
As with PvP actions, your PvP rank, PvP EXP, and AP are recognized only by the Grand Company through which you earned them; transferring your allegiance means you will have to start over. However, rest assured they will be reinstated to you upon rejoining your former Grand Company.
Earn enough series experience and you'll increase your series level, earning you series rewards. Trophy Crystals earned as series rewards be exchanged for a variety of items by speaking with the crystal quartermaster stationed at the Wolves' Den.
Wolf Marks earned through fighting in Frontline campaigns can be exchanged for PvP gear and other items by speaking with the mark quartermaster stationed at the Wolves' Den.
By continually winning Frontline campaigns, players will receive achievements that reward special mounts and gear.
Frontline standings can be viewed on the Lodestone for total victories, win rate, and number of matches fought. A notification will be displayed on your Wall when your friends or free company members are ranked among the top 100 competitors.
