Looking for Guild: FFXIV and Fallen Earth

Shawn Schuster

Did you miss us last week? Now that the submissions have slowed down quite a bit, we're switching to a biweekly schedule for the Looking for Guild column. So if you're on the fence about jumping in and joining up with a Massively player guild (or creating your own), now's the time!

This week we have three Final Fantasy XIV players looking to join up with other like-minded adventurers and one from Fallen Earth who's tired of soloing the wasteland. You can catch the entire list after the jump.

Here's how it works: If you're looking for a guild, simply send an email to with the subject line "LFG" and tell me the following:

  • The name of your game of choice (include server name if applicable)
  • Your usual play times (day and time of day)
  • Your main character class
  • Any alt classes you enjoy
  • Your preferred playstyle
  • What you would bring to a guild
  • Your main character name or contact name in-game (will not be published)
The following week (or weeks), I will post all submissions, minus the last question. If you're a guild leader or officer who is interested in pursuing someone you see in the column, you'll simply email me at the above address with the subject line "LFM - (Game name here)" and I will act as the liaison between the guild and the guild-seeker. That way, no contact info will be made public and connections can proceed in-game (or over email, if you choose) at the discretion of the submitter.

Looking For Guild FFXIV and Fallen Earth
Game: Final Fantasy XIV - Server: Behemoth
Usual play times: Almost every day 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. EDT; weekends sometimes all day.
Main character class: Paladin (Currently 46; 50 within the week)
Any alt classes: Eventually Miner and Blacksmith or Armorer
Preferred playstyle: Dungeon-runner, low or high level! Looking for a group of people to do endgame with, but I'm always up for running lowbies through dungeons.
What I bring: Good tanking skills; casual and helpful attitude. I try to be active on the guild chat (don't like voice chat) and always try to bring humor into it without being offensive or a troll. I love doing dungeon "guild runs"!

Game: Final Fantasy XIV - Sargatanas server
Usual play times: Weekdays 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., Weekends 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (CST/GMT-6:00)
Main character class: 50 Paladin
Any alt classes: Currently 50 Monk and 50 Warrior: I plan on getting 50 in all jobs/classes
Preferred playstyle: Semi-hardcore, if such a thing exists
What I bring: Not much for conversation, but I try to learn/study content before running it, and I am a quick study. Pretty serious when it comes to getting stuff done in-game.

Game: Final Fantasy XIV
Usual play times: 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. PDT
Main character class: Conjurer
Any alt classes: None
Preferred playstyle: Casual with goals
What I bring: Teamwork, unselfishness, maturity

Looking For Guild FFXIV and Fallen Earth
Game: Fallen Earth
Usual play times: Weekday afternoons (flexible, EDT), some weeknights after 9 p.m. EDT
Main character class: Level 50 Melee CHOTA
Any alt classes: I also have two characters in their 20s (rifles and pistols) and a level 9 (pistols)
Preferred playstyle: PvE, dungeons, group questing. Right now I mainly craft and gain levels only so I can craft more, and I'm tired of playing alone!
What I bring: I'm a team player, and I can follow orders. I also love to craft, so I can make a lot of stuff for any guildies who need it.
