I want to promote a idea for other shards what we been doing on Drachenfels. It can bring a shard together as a community. On Drachenfels we have a alliance called United Drachenfels and currently we have 61 guilds in it. Yes 61 and no not all guilds are in it. (Not Yet ) When i first joined i was not sure if it was a good idea but now months later i just know its the best thing we did for Drachenfels. Thanks to the alliance we brought people together. There are always people around to talk too, or trade or hunt or ask advice. If we need arcane focus its easy to gather enough . We even can plan events in a instant in ally chat . We can still do things seperate but if needed we can rely on help from the alliance. I even made a special guild for new and returning players. You can join it and have a taste and help from the alliance. But you can use the guild to make a step to another guild inside the alliance that fits you better.I even had peopel who had a guild but wanted to see how the alliance is who temporary joined the guild and then when they where happy joined there guild into the alliance. We don't let anyone just join with a guild. The ally leader always ask around on information on the players and guild who want to join. So if you looking to bring your shard together i can only recommend a huge alliance on your shard like this. It just a matter of someone taking the lead on it. (Thank you NinaLuna on Drachenfels for that.) Might want to concider it or think about it. For who plays Drachenfels. Can always find me or some others of the alliance in General chat to contact us. My guild is always open for anyone to taste our great community.
