Gloria Victis Factions Guide

Now, let’s move on to the guide!


The Empire of Azebia covers the desolated deserts in the South. Khagan rules over Azebia, though the inhabitants of this nation live in a pretty harsh environment. Residents of Azebia are tough and agile, as they’ve had to adapt to their unfortunate circumstances.

Their duty is to defeat the Midlanders who worship a different version of the Greatfather – for Midland, they worship the Forefather.


The Midlanders reside in the North, and their history spans many time periods, with the oldest record being from the days of Geliand of Hillead.

Midland is split into two separate kingdoms, but they agree on one thing – to defeat The Empire of Azebia. As mentioned above, Azebia and Midland are enemies due to their beliefs differentiating from each other.


Residing in the South, Sangmar’s Empire fell during the time of Azebia gaining freedom. Sangmar is a nation full of luxury and money, as well as a hub for science and culture.

Those who live in Sangmar have direct access to the best robes, weapons, and armor. However, they do not have their freedom.


Residents of Nordheim are clan warriors who believe in honor. As they loom over others with their height, they can easily intimidate those who come close.

You’ll often find an Ismir wielding a hefty, yet sharp axe. Nordheim is known to raid Midland, and it has been done for many centuries. However, Norheim and Midland come together when it comes to defeating Azebia.

That concludes our Gloria Victis factions guide! For more information about the game, visit the official website or the game’s Steam page.
