The Elder Scrolls Online: A Comprehensive Guild Guide
Guilds play an important role in the gameplay of The Elder Scrolls Online. Want to know a little more about the guilds in this RPG MMO? You have come to the right place! Now we will tell you in detail about the guild system …
What are guilds in TES Online and what they are eaten with
So, first, let’s open with you the guilds tab itself in The Elder Scrolls Online. Go to the settings menu of your game, then click on the buttons Social and Guilds (“Social” and “Guilds” if you are playing in Russian).
In this section of settings, you need to pay attention to the following:
- Guild search. The classic guild search engine for any MMO game. If you have just started playing The Elder Scrolls Online, then we strongly recommend that you join an existing guild rather than trying to create your own. By the way, about the creation of guilds …
- Creation of a new guild. After playing a certain number of hours and having gained plenty of gaming experience, you can start creating a personal guild, to which you can later invite friends and acquaintances. Many players create their own guild in one way or another.
It is also worth paying attention to the fact that when searching for guilds, the player can use special filters that simplify the search process. Let’s take a look at them:
- Trade. Displays guilds in front of you, which are mostly engaged in buying and selling a variety of in-game items.
- PVE groups. Not every player in The Elder Scrolls Online likes to spend their time in PVP battles, and therefore there are so-called PVE groups in the game that focus on completing story missions, battles with AI opponents and exploring the open world of the game.
- Role-playing game. Do you like playing different characters? Then why not join a guild of players who are completely dedicated to role-playing. Such guilds are not suitable for everyone, but they will definitely find their audience.
- Social. Social Guilds revolve around the social elements of The Elder Scrolls Online. If you urgently need friends – go to these guilds!
- PVP groups. In guilds like this, players focus on fighting other players. There is a special atmosphere here that not every person can endure, however, if in principle you love multiplayer battles, then you will definitely like it here.
- Quests. Something like PVE groups, but players in quest guilds are mainly engaged in, logically, completing story missions. Perhaps, it is worth joining such guilds only if you are not interested in anything other than completing story missions.
- Craft. Players in such guilds are mostly engaged in the creation of equipment and a variety of items.
Do you know what is even more interesting? A guild can have several specializations at the same time! Moreover, there are guilds in the game whose owners have decided to take all of the above specializations. Let’s go back to our in-game menus. Interested in guilds that do PVE and crafting? Exclude from the search query all filters except “PVE-groups” and “Craft”. In general, everything is extremely intuitive.
As soon as you complete your search query, you will be presented with a list with a whole bunch of very different guilds. The most interesting and important thing is:
- the required level to join the guild;
- the number of players in the guild;
- guild lifetime (how much time has passed since its creation).
Have you decided on a guild? Great, send a request to the guild owner and wait. You can also attach some message to the application. Now let’s talk about some of the restrictions associated with guilds in The Elder Scrolls Online.
- Up to five active guild applications. If there are five applications, the player will no longer be able to send new applications – old ones must be deleted.
- Five is the maximum number of guilds a player can join. Submitting applications to other guilds is deactivated if you are already a member of five guilds. To join other guilds, you will have to leave the old ones.
- Each player can create only one (!) Guild.
An interesting fact: after joining a guild, not only one of your characters is tied to it, but your entire account in The Elder Scrolls Online. This should undoubtedly be taken into account when joining some of the guilds.
Among other things, while searching, we advise you to pay attention to the list of members of the selected guild and its rank. With these two parameters, you can determine if you want to join a guild or not. Everything is clear with the list of players, but with the ranks everything is a little more interesting. The fact is that the higher the rank of the guild, the richer the available functionality in it. However, do not think that you will be able to get into a high-ranking guild on the move …
Are all guilds created by players?
No, not all. There are a number of guilds that were created by the developers themselves. Let’s list them:
- Fighters Guild
- Mages Guild
- Thieves Guild
- The Dark Brotherhood
- Psijic Order
Most of these guilds are familiar from the single-player games in The Elder Scrolls series. You can join any of the above guilds, as a rule, in one of the major cities of Tamriel. Some guilds will let you in after talking with a certain NPC, others only after completing special missions related to the guild itself. In a sense, these guilds can be considered story content.
