THE SHARD COLLECTORS are recruiting for RIFT... (was forum=2Follow

The Shard Collectors

PVE. BYRIEL SERVER

The Shard Collectors was founded in early 2005, and grew to become one of the largest guilds in Everquest 2. Over the years, we became the home away from home for thousands of players throughout the world. A large part of the guild's success can be summed up in 1 word...understanding. We understand that time, whether for leisure or family/freinds, is precious. We have always taken great pride in cultivating an atmosphere which allows for successful goal achievement, without having to make unreasonable "real life" compromises.

Shards was founded on the principles of inclusion, integrity, respect, and long-term stability. When we do something, we do it for the long haul...but mainly...we do it with "keeping the game fun" in mind. We recognize a game for what it is. Entertainment.

With that being said, we do like to mix things up a bit. Our guild includes folks from all woks of life, and covers a wide age-spectrum. While the majority of our membership is in the 25-45 age range, we do have many younger and older folks among the ranks as well. We are a family freindly guild, and we intend to keep it that way. We love to group up, shoot-the-breeze, and yes...we love to raid and tackle things as a team. We are casual in some aspects (i.e. no mandatory raid attendance, generally 1-2 raids max per week scheduled) ... though slightly less so in others (i.e. our raid force comes out to win and we expect our force to prepare accordingly; we use a suicide kings/DKP loot system; we raid regularly). Though we may be somewhat difficult to categorize, we definitely know what we stand for and who we want standing with us

The Shard Collectors is looking for folks from all Callings and Playstyles. We are recruiting soloers and groupers, tradeskillers and Raiders alike. We do not recruit for gear/player levels, we recruit for character. We're looking for folks who care about their guild, and who care about each other. We want folks who are here to have fun, but not at the expense of others

If you feel that we sound like a good fit for you and are interested in learning a bit more about us, please feel free to drop by The Shard Collectors guild site and say hello (www.shardcollectors.freeforums.org). We have set up separate forum sections for our RIFT affairs. Please use your character name (or intended future character name) as your username

Lastly, until Trion sets up a player search tool (to authenticate legitimate players), you can send me a PM here, or post a hello in this thread so that I know to activate your site registration (we manually activate to avoid spam, etc). It is rare that we will activate a forum registration out of the blue from eTrrkssaw91

Happy hunting!

I updated our recruiting thread to reflect a change in "how to join" The Shard Collectors.

Trion is having problems with their official site's community group admin functions (they have been broken for the last couple of weeks, pending group join requests are not being received or updated). In light of the situation, please do not attempt to join the Trion community guild group at this time. The group admins will not receive the requests.

If you would like more information regarding our guild, please drop by our Guild Site directly @ WWW.SHARDCOLLECTORS.FREEFORUMS.ORG

You can send me a PM or post here if you intend to register, or have registered and not yet been activated. The registrations are manually updated to avoid spam, so that will give us a heads up that a legitamite Reg needs to be activated asap :)

Happy hunting!

Hey, I'll join.

Although, I still haven't got in to the beta. I don't want to preorder it until I see if it is worth buying. Still looking for VIP key.

If you guys can help me out, would really appreciate it.

Regards.

Hi Demachine, its possible. I know a couple guys had a spare key or 2 for the last Beta. Feel free to drop by our site, I'll activate you and you'll see who has extra keys :) (sign up as Demachine so I recognize the account)

Cyprus...we're all in luck then :)

...looks like we are going Guardian as well. We do have a poll going (which you are welcome to vote on), which will end in about 2 weeks...but at the moment it is skewed towards going Guardian by quite a bit. Just pop by the site and register if you don't mind. Use Cyprus as the user so I recognize you :) I'll activate shortly thereafter and you can jump into the discussions.

Hiya Kasandra :)

Great, did you reg under the same username? (just making sure I activate the right one!).

Well, we're still seeing what we have and don't have calling/class wise, and I'm sure there will be a place for everything. I'd say choose whatever you consider the most fun for you...and we'll go with that!

sounds like my kind of guild. I've been playing WoW for the past couple years (used to play EQ too, but didn't really get too into it, then SWG, then CoH, and even GuildWars for a while, but anyway...) and I've always wanted to raid, but not hardcore, and it always seemed that if I wanted to raid, I had to join a hardcore raiding guild, or pug it out. I didn't like raid pugs because they never worked out for me, and I didn't want to join a hard core raiding guild because, being military, I couldn't always put in the commitment required for hardcore raiding guilds. I'm submitting for registration right nw with the username aaroc :)

Sounds good Aaroc, I activated your forum account so you are good to go. We definitely plan on raiding and rift hunting, but as one focus among several. No hardcore-edness for us :D

Hey Chimpnoodle,

I know you had mentioned about many aspects of the game you guys were interested in doing, but was wondering if you guys would be also doing some pvp or warfronts. The reason I am asking is because I have a handful of guildmates and friends who are moving away from WoW and are looking for a guild.

A few who are just interested in pvp since they have newborns, so can't really attend to the computer for too much time and have to attend to their babies if emergencies come up.

Lot of them are also interested in the raiding scene as well and we all are looking for the casual setting and guild friend/family guild that you are describing. :)

Also, I haven't seen the Byriel Server, but was wondering what time zone shard you guys will plan to join as most of us are CST and EST players.

Hiya Dry :)

Well, there is a rumor that there might be some server shakeup from Beta come live...but if Byriel still exists, that's where we'll head. Its been pretty high volume throughout the Betas and I know quite a few good folks heading there from other guilds as well.

We're definitely a PVE guild, so I can't say how many members would throw themselves into PvP (as in contested zones/wardstone battles)...but, I wouldn't be surprised if a good bunch might be interested in sporadic forays or possibly Warfronts at least to some degree. I'm not a big PvPer myself but I'm sure I could be convinced to hop in occasionally.

You'd be welcome to test the interest levels, just keep in mind that most current members have joined knowing it it is primarily a PVE guild. In EQ2, we were PVE as well though...and a fair number still hopped into the PvP arena battles at some point or another.

The atmosphere does sound like what you are looking for, minus the PvP orientation as a guild type. I don't see any issue with members hopping into warfronts whenever they want either way. We're cetainly not going to discourage it...unless it involves greifing or harrasing folks to PvP (guildies or non-guildies). Could be fun to organize the odd guild Warfront skirmish night I suppose too....maybe you'd want to organize it with us? :D

I have been playing the beta and am excited to finally find a game that I have fun playing again. I have preordered and hope to make Rift my new home for a while. One of the most important parts of a game to me is the community and I have been reading on the forums trying to find a good guild home. From your description of The Shard Collectors you seem like a great match and I really hope to get to know some of you. I am able to play at work so I am pretty much always in game to some extent. I plan on playing a Tank warrior and hopefully can find a home in your guild. I have registered on your site with the same account name.

Thanks for posting about the guild and hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks for the response Chimp. I'll see what the others think and say about it. Mainly most of us would be just doing warfronts. I think only one of our friends really is into the world pvp, so he would enjoy having the big raid battles and going to like the main city raid.

We're not so much into the lowbie/griefing pvp either. So you shouldn't have any problems with that from us. :)

I think that most of us players would just enjoy the community among the guild itself than those who just are pvpers because alot of us would have considered ourselves hardcore/semi-hardcore raiders, but have had enough of that and want the casual raiding scene as you guys are setting up. :)

I, myself was a guildmaster alongside with one of us being a raid leader and some of us being pvp leaders, but again we aren't hoping for a hardcore or pvp focused guild, but just wouldn't mind if some would join in for some pvp on the side. :)

I'd definitely be more than happy to help with organizing something.

I'll talk with the others and see what they say, but just hearing back from you and responding is promising enough for me.

I'll be in touch. Thanks again for the response.

One more question I was wondering....

What time zone are you guys mostly at since a lot of us are CST/EST time zones and would like to be able to be on when most of you guys are available.

Hiya Dry :)

We're a majority of EST folks, with a good amount of CSTers...a smaller splash of PSTers...and a small smattering of EU/Oceanics. Events will be set for EST, but are fairly convenient for CSTers...and early work finisher PSTers.. :D

Akadriel, you're reg was activated already. You're good to go!


Feel free to pop by and register Dry. I'm on Zam often either way...but I'm on our forums the most :D

HI! I am glad i found this post! I have been in Rift for 2 Beta Events, and I know that I will be playing it upon its release. I have been playing WoW for a year and a half now, and have been a member of a high end raiding guild for 6 months of that. I am ready for a change, and I know after playing the beta, that Rift is a change I am looking for. I ready your extensive guild description, and registered to your site. After reading all I have read, it is more than obvious that you and the members of your guild have things well organized and well put together, so much in fact, that I would like to be a member of your guild upon release, so that I can contribute what I can, and not be lost in sauce. I didn't catch or I don't remember what faction you are all going to go in as. I hope to hear from yall soon.

Great to see the forums are actively being watched! I am pretty excited about this new game and meeting new people to learn the game with and run dungeons and raids. If there is anything that I can do to prepare beforehand, let me know, as I want to have an active role in the guild. I am used to being a raid leader and usually take the point, but with so many unknowns, I'm nervous about all this new and unexplored content. I hope to begin the game with you all and hope to be an integral part of our progression.
