Point

(Redirected from Points Market)

A point is one form of currency, used to purchase things that unlock various parts of the game that are not immediately available. Points can be used in exchange for a Racing License, Bazaar, Display Cabinet and even more Friends and Enemies space!

You can not trade points but you can exchange points between people via faction armory.
