What data center and server are you on?
We’re in the Aether data center on the Goblin server.
What requirements does the free company have for recruitment?
Currently, we do not have specific requirements. The only “ask” we have is that a person be engaged in the guild by being social. This can be done in-game, through Discord text or voice. We have people who love to do raiding, crafting, PVP, dailies, weeklies, or some combination of all of those things. Any and all types of players are welcome!
What do you use for voice chat?
We are using Discord. Please feel free to join us for a text or voice chat any time, at https://discord.gg/B48Vsqr.
Is using voice chat mandatory?
For general socializing, definitely not – though highly encouraged! We have some members who’ll just listen in on voice chat and reply or communicate via text chat in Discord or free company chat. The only time when being on voice chat to at least listen is required is any kind of raiding event. Be it instanced raiding, boss fights, PVP, etc. It is hard to quickly communicate via text with all the action going on.
What is the age requirement for membership?
We have a strict 21 and up policy for membership into our community. Exceptions have been and can be made but they are rare.
How diverse is the free company?
We pride ourselves on our diversity. We provide a great and safe atmosphere for everyone in the free company, and have zero tolerance for any kind of harassment or derogatory comments.
We’re extremely diverse, all-around. We have people from many different backgrounds, cultures, nationalities, sexual preferences, etc. You name it, we probably have a member – and we embrace it.
Does the free company have a house?
Yes! Our free company house has a large house located in Shirogane, ward 17, plot 7. Come visit us some time!
