Looking for advice before I start playing please

I am downloading the game right now and have been looking through the forums.  I don't see any EU guilds advertising that don't use voice or discord?  I would much rather neither, instead using just the guild chat in game. 

I'm looking for a casual, social, pve guild on EU servers that does not use discord or voice comms. 

If you know one please state it's name and which server it is on, so I know which server to choose. 

Thank you :)

Unfortunately you might be looking for something that just doesn't exists. The ingame chat is quite annoying (tiny font, limit on message length, no timestamps etc). I'd suggest contacting any guild you are interested in to see how strict they are about using Discord.

Jordine seems to be the competitive hardcore pvp server. 

Alustin has also quite some amount of pvp guilds but I would classify it as the German server. There are many English speaking guilds as well though.

Croxus no idea

If you want to go in a PVP guild, the voice comm is a must so you cant go around it. With any other type of guild I am pretty sure you can be just fine by using only the guild chat.

You really should be on the EU forum looking there, but if you decide to go with the US servers, InfinityCircle might work out for you on Uno.  We have discord, but it's only required if you participate in the sieges & node wars.  guilds have the ability to protect up to 20 members of their guild from having to join in on pvp, though most guild leaders want folks to join in.  contact Alitar on Uno for info if you are interested in our server.

Hi Lysel,

So you're looking for a casual PvE guild, no voice chat. Since this is the International forum you're asking in the right place.

Unfortunately I don't play on the EU servers, but the best advice I can give is ask your question in your server's channel chat.

or use a megaphone from the loyalty shop (100 loyalties) to use the server wide message. chances are if you ask in game for a casual PvE guild, with optional voice chat,  you'll have people messaging you.

It will depend on what channel on your servers are active, and at what time you ask.

Thank you for all your replies so far.  I picked this forum as it makes sense to join with people that are happy to help on a newby forum, and it is international so covers EU too :)

I was hoping to get a reply from an EU guild that fit the bill,  so I'd know which server to start on.  I don't want to risk losing the things you get from the pack you buy, which I'm guessing you do if you restart on a different server?

So I'm still sitting hopeful for now.  Will give it a little while before settle on a server. :)

Don't worry much about guilds, there are plenty advertising ingame (more than you'll see on the forums).  Casual ones, in general, don't require Discord/Skype while hardcore PvP guilds most likely do. It does make sense though seeing node wars need lots of coordination but that's not your goal as you said - or not for now at least. 

Speaking of experience, not all guilds that use voice comms force you to use it so it's always good to ask them if you like a certain guild.

You do lose the things you get from the pack since they're mostly consumables. Don't worry about the horse and steel tools though, those can be replaced easily, the pick-up pet (if you have the expensive pack) is the important part here. Perhaps you should wait before actually claiming it so you can see for yourself!

 

I personally play on Croxus - I've been told it's less populated than Jordine though it's far from empty; it feels like a nice place since you get to see familiar names if you always play in the same channel and monster spawns are not absolutely crowded, you can always find a spot to grind at (except for the highest level monsters, but that's inherent to the game's design).

I think you'll find that the main reason a lot of guilds need voice comms is for co-ordination during guild wars and soon Node/Siege wars.
Something to consider too.
