recruiting! {RoW} Ravens of War [Mercenary RP-PvP] - Looking for skilled PvPers GS 400+

1. Talk about yourself as a gamer, what games you played, what experience you have with PvP, PvE, and RP.

I've been a gamer since as far back as I can remember.  While I started on consoles (NES, Sega, etc) I moved away from that quite a while back.  The last system I owned was a Sony Playstation.

Since then I've been playing games on PC, dating back to games for MS-DOS (Commander Keen, Doom, Duke Nukem) and I've never looked back.

I've tried a lot of MMORPG's (Star Wars: The Old Republic, EverQuest2, WildStar, Final Fantasy 14) but have remained consistently in World of Warcraft since the day it launched.  I actually just recently stopped playing WoW, and primarily play Black Desert Online now.

I've participated in plenty of PvP in WoW, but my primary focus was PvE where we regularly cleared end-game raid content.  That said I very much look forward to plenty of PvP in Black Desert Online, and can be a very competitive player.

Now, regarding roleplay:  I have very little experience in this, but I am interested.  The little experience I have was solely with my best friend (Rovella) who is also applying to your guild.  This was in World of Warcraft.

 

2. Give an overview of a medieval character you want to play in Black Desert Online. (Please have a normal name)

First, my characters name is Tanvyr Sunderlight.  He is a middle-aged Warrior.

I chose Warrior because it is what my mind immediately goes to when I think "medieval rpg".  I started my Warrior in WoW on day 1 and played it as my main until the day I stopped playing.

In Black Desert, the idea behind a Sword & Board Merc is very appealing to me (something Rovella and I have talked about quite a bit already), which sounds like it should match your guilds story pretty well.

 

3. A short paragraph describing your character story. (3 sentences minimum)

Tanvyr comes from a noble family, being pushed into the Calpheon military by his parents at an early age. While he embraced many things about a soldiers life (discipline, training, personal honor), he found himself wanting much more than a single capital could provide. And so he left the more traditional structure of being a champion, and is seeking a strong and resolute group to be a part of, lending his natural pugnacity of a warrior to become something more.

Hello! I'm looking to join up with your team with a friend of mine (Tanvyr, 50 Warrior). Please feel free to PM me with any questions. :)

 

1. Talk about yourself as a gamer, what games you played, what experience you have with PvP, PvE, and RP.
 
I've been gaming for a long time (20 years?) and it's my primary hobby so I'd say I'm pretty active. I've played various MMO's like WoW, SWTOR, FF, GW2 and some others and also dabble in FPS's and RPG's. Most of my MMO career has been in end game PvE with PvP tied in for guild nights and arenas with friends. I'm not the type to seek out individual 1v1 PvP but definitely throw myself into the fray with group settings, almost always playing a support type. With RP, I've been doing it for about 10 years on and off when the setting and social group inspires me, and plan to do a lot of it in BDO as the world is just too immersive not to.  I play a level 50 Valkyrie and appreciate the support the class has, even without a traditional trinity in the game. 
 
Currently I'm looking to join a guild with my long time gaming partner, Tanvyr. We're both adults who are hoping to find a home to dedicate ourselves to, be very active in and make new friends in the new world of BDO. Neither of us played BDO in beta, but we've already learned so much and look forward to becoming as adept in this game as we have in others. 
 
 
2. Give an overview of a medieval character you want to play in Black Desert Online. 
 
I'm building her story as I go for the most part, bringing in the template of a fallen knight that I played in another game. Currently she is chaotic neutral, conflicted between the life she was born and raised in, and the one she wants to make for herself. I have a profile in progress. 
 
 
3. A short paragraph describing your character story. 
 
Miandia Rovella is a somewhat new adventurer who gave up possible glory and prestige (she may or may not have been expelled from the academy  >.>  ) in order to seek a more enterprising and hedonistic way of life. She's a tenacious young woman (early 20's) with an undisclosed passion to become a privateer on the high seas, often running away to Epheria for days on end as an adolescent. Already associating herself with various marauders and a more treacherous class in society, she's trying to walk the line between staying true to what her parents wanted for her as a person, and the natural urge she has to requisition everything she can in life.
 
Currently she's seeking a crew to join up with in hopes of making her own place in the world, instead of being just another number in the Holy College of Calpheon. 
 
 
Character name: Miandia Rovella
Family name: Rovella

Oh, man, you gotta love the people who drop an application, and then never check the forum, or the private messages again. Good stuff.
We are still recruiting, room left for 15 people, actives only, feel free to apply.

What are your plans regarding node wars?

As far as I understand, all other guild wars are dropped during the battles, so you can't exactly join the battle as a mercenary on behalf of a different guild. They will all be red to your players.

I understand that some of your members are very capable players, but if you're outnumbered 2:1 you're looking at a very uphill battle that could have been avoided. Are you going to stick with the 50 player cap or raise it in the future?

Does your guild do party grinding or is it mostly a solo affair with guild/voice chat for company?

Do you go to war in order to fight for grind spots or do you relocate / join forces?

Hello there!

I'll assume you are speaking of my application and Tanvyr's and we did make sure to check the forums daily after we applied.  We hadn't heard anything back in a few days even though your GM and officers had been on the forums during that weekend and assumed our applications were not of interest.  When we did hear back, we only received a discord link in a PM and nothing more.

We have since found a great guild. Best of luck to you guys!

Good questions.

1. There are some ways around the no-war system. Three of the most obvious being - flagging on enemies directly, getting into party with the customer guild, or temporarily tagging contracting troops to the customer guild. There are some other ways, like placing your own structure to enter the event, but not defend it, instead, defending the customer, and being allowed to hold the node for a period of time in the future, upon agreement.

2. The current plan for the guild charter is 100 people total, 50 of which are PvPers in the field and 50 auxiliary/support members.

3. We party grind all the time. And do party scrolls all the time. And do guild bosses all the time. Though some things in BDO are best done solo. Undeniably.

4. We routinely go to war over grind spots, unless the fight is clearly unwinnable, then we relocate. On occasion it happened that we joined forces, it's situational, largely depending on the attitude of the people at the spot. Can't really give a blanket statement answer to that one. I'd say overall, 50% go to war, 35% leave, 15% join forces.

On point 1, there may also be possibilities open when whaling comes around, there is a way to indirectly pay a person while doing it.

Thanks for the reply folks. Unfortunately I've already found a place for myself, but if things change I'll definitely look here again. Sounds like good leadership. :)

Thank you everyone for quickly rallying and responding in flexible manner despite Daum's best attempts to make Node Wars chaotic. We built the fort and learned about base defenses, and now Ravens of War own a node.

We started small and humble, and succeeded as a result. Good work.

Ravens of War now stands at 80 members and we are recruiting to top off to 100. Also welcoming small mergers.

A non-hardcore tier 2 RP/PvP guild, specializing in mercenary work for hire and marketing our services as a supporting force to more hardcore guilds, with the aim to stay in business and keep afloat. 500 000 - 1 000 000 salaries for skilled PvPers.

RP-PvP, casual PvP friendly.

Presently we are giving preference to rangers and berserkers, but all recruits are welcome to apply.
Minimal gear score is 390 with 150 AP.

Interested in PvP, but don't have the time to be in highly competitive top tier guilds? Or simply like to progress at your own pace? Stop by, plenty of work here.

For roleplayers out there, who enjoy in-character interaction and storytelling, we are a hybrid roleplaying guild that exists in character, and we're the strongest and longest lasting roleplayer guild. If in-character is your bag, definitely check us out.

Right, anyways, where were we? Ah, yes. Recruiting! Still are. 80 / 100. 20 spots left!
PvP berserkers - badly required! If you're a pvp zerker, you're pretty much in! (Well, assuming you comply with the guild requirements :) )

 

Caw caw!
