Thank you for your interest in our guild. For the quick-browsing types, here's a quick tl;dr:

  • We're a PvX guild that partakes in everything BDO has to offer. Node Wars, bosses, disco parties, life skills, everything.
  • Our leadership core has been together 13 years, starting on Eclipse on Star Wars Galaxies.
  • We're community, social and player focused. Active? Not a scumbag? You'll fit right in.
  • We have no gear score requirements but we'd like to ask for lvl 55+ applicants. 
  • Toxicity is not welcome and will be dealt with and removed quickly.
  • We use discord to communicate. Drop by and say hi at discord.aethereal.club
  • We have a website too. Check it, yo: aethereal.club
  • We're mostly in our 30's. We're working professionals, guys, gals, humans, foxes, and...other things.

Interested and wanna learn more? Read our FAQ! 

Excited and ready to join us? Fill out an application!

Now for some Q&A!

Why Aethereal?

We are "casual, but serious". 

What does this even mean? We're a laid back group of adults who enjoy adventuring together, being social, respecting each other, learning and teaching others. We have our casual players, players who are on all the time and only log off during maintenance, and everything in-between. Our focus is on our members and whatever achievements we get along the way, big or small. Being "casual, but serious" means we'll never be hardcore enough to tell you how much to play, but we're also not so casual as to not have any organization or guild goals. 

We strive to have an active and engaging community, so whether you're new to the whole MMO thing or an old EQ vet, Aethereal will welcome any player who likes to invest in the guild they are a part of, get to know those they play with, and generally have a good time. 

If you're an elitist who wants to berate others, please look elsewhere as this is not the home for you.

What are your plans in Black Desert Online? What is your Focus?

 We focus on all the things! Didn't you read the tl;dr? We engage on all the content BDO has to offer and even make up our own sometimes. We're not a hardcore PvP guild nor are we solely PVE focused either. We have a healthy mix of all types of players from Life Skills masters to those who spend way too much time in the Arena. 

Does the guild use voice chat regularly?

Yes! We're on discord all the time!

You can join us at anytime. Our invite link is http://discord.aethereal.club. Most of the guild leadership has Discord on our phones so there should be someone lurking around to answer any questions you might have.

We don't require to be on voice 100% of the time, but we do ask our members to log onto discord when you're actively playing the game. We have a quiet room for those who don't wish to chat. We only ask you log on because of all the AFK activities Black Desert has to offer, seeing who's on Discord helps us see who is actively playing.

Which time zones are your members located?

We are sort of split in half between Eastern and Pacific time zones. The guild is most active around 8PM EST or so. We do have a few members from overseas like England and Oceana. 

Okay, I think I'm convinced. What else should I know?

As previously mentioned, we really want people who want to be invested in the guild they join. Games come and go but relationships, even virtual ones, can be lasting. If that sounds like you or something you're interested in, take some time to visit our website to learn a little more about us. If we sound like a good fit for you, then submit an application.

That sounds great! What are the next steps? What if I have some questions not answered here?

If you've decided you think we may be a good fit, the best thing to do is read our "About" page and then apply to our guild. The guild application process is mostly a formality, asking for simple things like your SSN, driver's license number, current address, and mother's maiden name character info. After you submit the required info, we will reach out to you and may ask a few additional questions to ensure Aethereal is a good fit for you and vice-versa.

Whether you've already applied or still on the fence and have some further questions, feel free to jump into our Discord at any time. If you don't have the Discord Desktop Client, you can still text chat with us using the Web Client. There is usually someone either on or available to answer any questions you might have.

I have two concerns. Just two. Everything else is perfect.

One concern is age. I'm 18. In High School. "We're mostly in our 30's". Can I relate with "working professionals"? Can I fit in? The answer would be no, I would honestly not fit in with a guild solely made up of 30 year olds. I just don't have the expirence to be able to see eye to eye. So the redeeming question is this: Are there younger (like... my ageish) members? Or is it really a pure adult guild (ya, ya, "18 is an adult" says the world. "Well, world... your wrong." says me)?

The second concern is availability. I also have a part time job on top of High School. Meaning that just based on that my availability is 25% less than the average adult with a 40 hour per weekly job as High School is my 40 hours (or more, this is slavery) and part time is 20 more hours. Also, I gotta admit it... I play other games. I know! How blasphemous! How unloyal! How... Bad? How bad! BDO would be (kinda) my main. Because I am online around 5 hours or more almost every day! But... When I am "online" I'm AFK running or practicing the art of being a pack mule... AFK. I do this while I work, I do this while I'm with a fox in a box and eating green eggs and ham, and I do this while I'm cheating on BDO with other games. So my availability is... Unpredictable? Inconstant? Edgy? Not a lot? Ya, all of those things.

 

So... Ya. I'm Nox, btw. Nice to meetcha.

Questions for you! My current guild is dying, the leader hasn't been on for a long time, many of the officers have left, chat is dead... so myself and my friends are thinking about looking for a new home. You look like you would be a good fit, we're all in our 30's as well, casual, but serious for being casual. lol This move would include myself, my two best friends and my wife and nephew.

My questions are related to our eligibility, see my nephew is 19, and my wife only plays so often as she is a full time student and works and trying to finish her teaching degree. The most two active out of our group would likely be myself and my friends, but we wouldn't want to exclude my wife or nephew... Would you share your thoughts and opinions on this? I appreciate it!

FYI when I saw your guild post, I felt compelled to inquire, I have bumped into a few of your guildmates ( I recall the guild name) and recall everyone was very pleasant and friendly. So even if we are unable to join, I do want to say you do have a nice bunch there and you should be proud of your members.

Hey @MadFable! Thanks for reaching out to me!

I understand wanting to stick with the family and friends that you love but there are a few issues that make it difficult to invite your group. Unfortunately, we have a strict 21 and over policy for the guild, so I wouldn't be able to invite your nephew. Secondly, our space right now is limited. We are currently in the process of bringing on other applicants, so I cannot accommodate your group of five into the guild at the moment. I do not have an estimate I can give you on when more spots will open up, and if it's an all-or-nothing deal in regards to your nephew sticking with your group, I'm going to have reject you guys at this moment in time. 

I hope you and your group can find a home here in BDO. I would suggest looking into KnightsOfGood, Tenacious, or if you prefer a smaller guild, Acolytes. Good luck to you guys out there and see you around!
