You should check out Corvus Citadel.
Who are we?
We’re a group of mature (mainly in age but also a little bit in personality) players ranging from hardcore to casual that enjoy tailoring our theme and interests to the game’s lore. While we’re not dedicated in-character role-players, we do like to keep a consistent theme. We’ll be theming around and supporting the Chaos faction when appropriate. We're primarily based in North America and will be playing on the NA servers, but we are open to any interested in playing on said servers.
Who should join us?
We’re open to those interested in any aspect of the game with any level of commitment. Whether you traditionally consider yourself hardcore, casual, or something in between; if you want to help we can find a place for you. We like to have fun and don’t mind more casual players, but when it’s go time we like to be serious too. If you’re going to participate in our higher level strategy and organized campaign efforts we expect you to be able to follow orders when the time comes.
We only have three general rules:
1. Respect your fellow players (aka Don’t be a prick)
2. Respect the chain of command when it it’s time to be serious
3. Absolutely no racist/sexist/homophobic/etc... insults or commentary(edited)
Where can you find us in game?
We'll be maintaining our Eternal Kingdom, Corvus Citadel (based around a Mountain Citadel plot), as a community hub open to all. Whether you come to trade, find information, or just to hang out, the door will always be open. Many of us are very crafting minded and we hope to build a thriving marketplace right at the entrance to the Citadel, making quick visits as convenient as possible for shoppers. As the above lore section implies, we will have a strong focus on the gods of Chaos, you’ll find a set of Cathedrals dedicated to them throughout the mountain. Depending on how those mechanics work out we may expand to include more of the pantheon into our theme and day to day play.(edited)
How are we organized?
Currently we’re maintaining a single guild, Corvus Citadel, but planning for the possibility to maintain multiple core guilds depending on any guild mechanics or limitations revealed later in the game's development. The Citadel's ranks are based on purpose: the Corax Council is our highest level leadership - they guide the citadel's overarching agenda. Seekers are the Council's direct agents among the dying worlds, commanding troops, managing logistics, and engaging in diplomacy with other guilds. The Crowguard is our core body that not only makes up our fighting strength but also handles the majority of our gathering and manufacturing. Most of our members will be found among the guard. Depending on growth we may subdivide the Crowguard into Legions, each under a Seeker to form quasi-independent commands, time will tell. We will be accepting sub-guilds interested in pledging to the Citadel. Sub guilds will have the option of being placed into our command structure or keeping their own command as auxiliaries. While we’ll expect auxiliaries to accept some guidance and cooperate with the the rest of the Citadel’s forces, less organizational demands will be expected of them.
If any of this sounds interesting and you'd like to join our guild or pledge as a sub-guild you can drop @[=CC=] Duffy or @jackd (Danielz) a private message indicating your intent or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Portions of our discord are open to the general public so if you just want to hang out and say hello (or eventually maybe do some trading), feel free!
I'm tired of making every other crafter more effective than me ;). It seems ridiculous that jewellers don't get an experimentation points necklace like most other professions. Does anyone know if we'll eventually get some love?
I mean have you seen the price of video cards these days? I'm pretty sure the videocard companies took the bottom fork of ranger. Actually I've found the most bang for your buck these days comes from more RAM and a good SSD. And fortunately neither of those are real budget busters right now.
I'm pretty sure the bulk of the problems may not be with your rig. A great rig never hurts, but I think a lot of it is server side optimization, which will come. All we can do is give them the data and have a little fun in the process. I do turn off all my bells and whistles when going into something like that. It helps. If we don't push it to breaking, they can't fix it.
I believe the guard changes definitely have contributed to the lack of keep taking. But I think it was a great show by all of chaos, not just my guild. There were some nail biting moments in all of it. I can't wait to see what those giant bonus pools inspire later on.
There were some slide show moments, I laughed out loud when they said ignore the reset messages.
Just saying, (technical issues aside)pretty heroic. Go Corvus Citadel!
Long time gamer, looking forward to learning this game. I'm old school. First played EQ, EQ2, Shadowbane, DAOC, Vanguard, Linneage 2, GW2, Warhammer...it's a list. Love pvp and crafting. Hoping to find a guild with people of similiar experiences.
