New to the Beta? Here's a QA (about joining the GB guild, etc)

#1 Edited by selfconfessedcynic (2494 posts) -

Hi!

I'll be updating this QA with questions I recieve during this beta - post here if you want to know anything.

This is for general questions about the guild and how to play with the rest of us, not mechanics or graphics settings.

What server is the guild on?

Yak's Bend

It's full at the moment (half an hour before official launch of the beta) but expect it to free up at least a little as people shift during the weekend. Some members of the guild are in Moledune and Blazeridge Mountains, so if it never works out for you you can join them over there.

How do I join the guild?

Message one of our leaders / officers in game or on mumble

  • Frak The Police (me)
  • Robbie Mac (RobbieMac)
  • Jack Lafayette (Dark_Lord_Spam)
  • Shinboy (Shinboy630)
  • Pancake Apocalypse (No0b0rAmA)
  • Dourin (Dourin) - temp officer
  • Khalessar Ironfist (Tarkhein) - temp officer

I just made a new character, why am I not showing up in the guild?

For new characters (unless they've streamlined it), you have to...

  1. Hit "G" for the guild page
  2. Hit the wrench in the bottom of the options on the left
  3. Click our guild if not already selected, then hit "represent guild".

This is because you can actually be a part of multiple guilds and represent different ones on any character at any given time. You can change this option after you set it.

I joined the wrong server, can I switch?

You can actually switch servers at the start of each beta event for free, along with the first couple of days of release.

Aside from those times, you need to use gems to switch servers - they give some of these out to everyone during the betas, but they are usually purchased for real world cash.
