We are very pleased to announce a project we have been working on for the last few weeks.
Introducing: The TERA Guild Finder Page!
(I realized that the link is kind of hidden. So here it is: http://guilds.enmasse.com/
This guild finder is designed to be an easier, constantly alive page for finding a new guild, as well as finding new blood for your guild.
In the past, we have run a few guild fairs. There has been plenty of things we could improve for the in game event, but one thing was received very well, and that was an official guild directory. It is obvious that players want to find a guild that suits their play style, and guilds want to find like minded individuals to join their currently active guild.
We are currently in a "soft launch" stage for this page. That means we are gauging feedback, and making sure everything is working before alerting the player base as a whole. This also means that the guild finder page will slowly be filled by guild masters looking to bolster their ranks, so if you don't see a guild that fits your style right away, give it a few days!
We plan to announce the Guild Finder page to the greater public later this week.
So whether you are looking for a guild, or looking for some great new recruits, we hope the guild finder helps you in your journey throughout the wonderful world of Arborea!
Feedback and Confusion?
We want your feedback. This page was designed with a minimal theme in mind, but that doesn't mean we don't want to make it better! If you feel there should be a feature added or tweaked, please let us know. After all, we want as many players to find this constructive as possible. We will be eagerly awaiting your feedback, positive or negative, in the Guild Finder thread located in the General Discussion forums (that's here).
We want... scratch that... we NEED to know if you are confused by this page in any way. We have not announced this page to the entire TERA community yet so we could be prepared with as much documentation as we feel is required. We don't want our community to be confused in any way, whether you are recruiting or looking for a guild. Please provide any feedback, positive or negative, in the Guild Finder thread located in the General Discussion forums (that's here).
I Am Recruiting For My Guild!
Excellent! It is extremely easy to submit your guild to the guild finder page. Please note that you must be the Guild Master of your guild to submit your guild to this page.
All data on our guild finder page is roughly 24 hours behind what is available on the live service. If you are a new GM, made changes to your guild size, or changed GMs, please wait up to 24 hours before expecting to add your guild to the guild finder page.
If you have been the GM of a guild older than 24 hours in age, then please follow these instructions to list your guild:
1.) Navigate to the Guild Finder page: http://guilds.enmasse.com/
2.) Click the blue button on the top right stating "+ Add a Guild (GM Only)"
2a.) If you were not signed in already, you will be directed to sign into your En Masse account.
3.) Now that you are signed in, you will be directed to pick a server. Pick the server that your guild is on.
4.) Fill out the details regarding your guild. You are not required to fill out all preferences, but it is encouraged. For more information on how your guild will be found, please look at the "What Do These Preferences Mean" section below.
5.) You may now add your guild to the listing. It should be almost instantly that your guild is listed and can be searched for.
I Am Looking For A Guild!
Wonderful! We have several options that allow you to clarify your search to find a guild suitable to your play style.
The only required preference that you select is the server that you are looking for a guild on.
What Do The Preferences Mean?
Each of the preferences is meant to help you better find a guild, or list your guild for players that play like you!
This allows you to look for a guild that is specifically looking for either max level players or players of all levels. By selecting "No Preferance" you will be served the entire guild list. If you select "Max Level" you will not see any guilds that have selected "No Preference" or "Any Level".
This allows you to personalize the your guild search. If you do not have a preference, do not click any icons. If you are looking for strictly an RP guild for example you will want to click the "RP" logo once until it has been outlined in blue.
If you want to exclude a play style, click the icon until it has a red X on it. When you click "Find a Guild", you will only have the guilds listed that exclusively match your taste, unless you didn't click anything.
No Preferences Selected.
PVE and RP Included.
RP Guilds Excluded.
Self explanitory. If you are looking for a specific sized guild, choose one from the drop down. If not, click "Any".
Guilds, when filling out their guild listed, may choose to put in a languages, and a guild description. The keyword search box will search both the "Language" and "Guild Description" of a guild.
If you are looking for a guild that speaks Spanish, you may want to search for the word "Spanish".
Maybe you want a guild that is located in Canada. You could search for "Canada" in the keyword search section.
This section will be expanded as more questions are sent to us.
Q:The add a guild button says it's for GM's only. Do I need to send EME a message to apply for the page?
No, the GM actually stands for Guild Master. This was overlooked and should be changed in a future update. Only Guild Masters can list their guild on the Guild Finder.
