Allies and friends
Our brothers and sisters-in-arms. We assist in GvG, Node Wars, and we move out of each others way in PvE. DO NOT PK people in these guilds. If an issue arises, contact an Officer immediately.
We are friendly towards these people, and we expect the same towards us. Move out of the way in PvE, do not PK these people. If there is an issue, contact an Officer.
Going absent for a bit? We have a policy around that
Due to the strict member cap in BDO we have a policy of removing people from the guild in-game when they’re been gone, without notice, for 7 or more days. If this happens to you, you have not been Banned or removed from the Aethereal Community, you are just simply removed in-game. Whenever you get back to the game you can re-join if there is a spot currently available. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for the next available spot.
Why do we do this? For starters, we promote an active guild. That doesn’t mean we expect people to be on every evening for hours on end, but we do want an engaged, social community that is working together as much as possible. Second, we usually have a backlog of applications to the guild as we’re always up against the member cap. These tend to be active players eager to join our community. Lastly, most people are reach our threshold for unspecified absence that get removed have left the game permanently or for a lengthy period of time.
I need to be away for a while due to some reason, what do I do?
Simply make a post in our Text Channel bdo-leave. Please include your Family name and how long you are going to be gone or what date you’ll be back.
I was gone and got removed from the guild, what do I do now?
Contact an Officer in #bdo-lobby or in-game and let them know. We will bring you back into the guild in-game if we have spots open. If we do not, unfortunately you’ll have to wait until a spot opens up.
When do we do guild quests?
We try and pop guild quests several times a day. Guild quests are server wide, so we are competing with all other guilds on the server to pick up a quest. Officers will pop a GQ if they see an appropriate one up. If you need a quest at a certain time feel free to contact an Officer and request a GQ. We can’t guarantee that a quest will be available, so the best thing you can do to help get your GQ popped is to help search for one! We have 5 available quests per day and we will pop L/XL Valencia and Kamasylvia quests. We will pop XL gathering quests on request.
Who are the GQ teams and their responsibilities?
Unlike some other guilds, we do not have GQ teams that work on GQ at specific days and times. Everyone is encouraged to participate and work towards their 10k Activity Point goal. Also by doing GQ’s our guild enjoys a few benefits.
a.) Gives the guild experience points which eventually turn into levels. Each time we level we gain 2 guild skill points which we can use to add passive or active buffs, abilities, and upgrades for everyone in the guild.
b.) Gives the guild money which helps us fund things like node wars and guild boss scrolls.
c.) It keeps our guild on the first page on the rankings. Giving our guild visibility allows for more interest in our guild which allows us to keep our community active with new members joining regularly.
When do we do Node Wars?
We do Node Wars every Monday and Thursday at 6PM PST (9PM EST). Each node war lasts 2 hours and Fort Building will start sometime late morning/early afternoon PST.
30 minutes prior to War, we will be forming Offence and Defense teams so please get on Discord at that time if you can.
Do we have any Guild Events?
We often do guild events on Tuesday and Friday evenings. On Tuesdays we do the Mirumok Destroyer Offin Tett boss in Kamasylvia. On Fridays we may do a second Offin Tett run, sea monster hunts, Arena of Arsha, or other special guild events. Events are announced ahead of time in discord.
Do we do crate summons?
We offer a Command to Gather to Valencia City every Saturday. (NOTE: These are no longer available due to a Command to Gather nerf in game. If it is ever possible to resume trade summons, we will certainly do so!)
Do we do payouts?
We keep daily contract pay low and instead provide our members with payouts. When the guild bank reaches 3 billion, we will do a large payout. BDO breaks up the payout into four tiers, which we assign to members based on node war attendance and total guild contribution. This way, we are rewarding members who are putting their time and gold into helping the guild!
We assign payout tiers based on the following criteria:
- Tier 4 – At least 75% node war attendance OR 500k+ guild contribution
- Tier 3 – At least 50% node war attendance OR 250k+ guild contribution
- Tier 2 – At least 25% node war attendance OR 100k+ guild contribution
- Tier 1 – Less than 25% node war attendance AND less than 100k guild contribution, members that have been inactive for more than 7 days, and members who have been in the guild for less than 2 weeks.

Two things to note:
- They are very strict about behavior there so make sure you read the rules and follow them. They like to ban people.
- The ihana bot is going to go away.
