Besaid: Grand Companies Follow

Which Company are players interested in joining and why?

Some people may wait until the update to check them out, but I'm sure a good portion knows who they want to join now. The one thing that worries me is that The Immortal Flames may be over picked since Ul'dah is considered the Central city in the game (at least currently). There's nothing wrong with that, I'm just hoping it will be somewhat balanced.

Are some linkshells planning on having all of their members join one?

In the future there may be linkshells for Companies, but I'm thinking linkshells will be lenient on which Company their members join now. It's like in ffxi where some linkshells were devoted to city states.

Do the Role players plan on sticking with their city states?

I don't know enough about RP'ers to make a comment.

Anyone from any server feel free to join the discussion. I just posted this here for a bit of a Besaid census. Hopefully we can get the besaid forum more active again.

Initially I would just chose Ul'Dah because that is my city state but as with so many things in MMOs the rewards provided by each company will have an impact on my choice. Having my main as ARM with a second preferance for MRD and BSM I will have to check which, if any, company might provide better crafting rewards or if it might be based on Guild location.

When this info for companies first came up I actually put the question to my Ls whether they would like to get everyone in the same company or leave it up to player's choice and it happen that most players would like to chose theyr own starting city. Hopefully this will mean that (along with Guild Mark alocation for leves) this will help in spreading out the population back again to all 3 cities.

I'll be joining The Maelstorm since I like them the best, and Limsa is my starting city. Pirates are always a plus. Always. Since the three are allies it may not matter which you join, as far as being able to do quest together.

I'll probably check out all three just because I'm curious, and I want to see what each one has to offer, but I am Ul'dahn 100%! I will almost definitely be enlisting in the Immortal Flames.

My guild is RP and endgame (when there IS an endgame), and I know some people are planning on checking out which fits them best, and others are going along with their character's hometown.

I'm curious if any linkshells on Besaid are going to be Company-specific? Like a Maelstrom-only LS.

I'm sure people will create them after a while. The first three names that will be picked will be named after the companies. That is if they haven't been created already.

I'm following Gridania to the end. I love the storyline behind the city. Worried with how deserted the city is that it'll be low enlistment. Anyone else joining Gridanias?

I'm hopping that the different companies, along with the change to leves (in which you will only ga able to get Guild Marks on those you obtain in the city with the Guild in) will help spread the population through Eorzea and out of Uldah.

I can only hope that the new Beastmen camps will also have a link with the local Company once again awarding people that require those company's missions/ranks to stay around those areas.

I'm thinking it'll spread out with 1.18, but Ul'dah will still be the central hub to hang out at. With transportation being added in 1.19 it should spread out even better. Ul'dah will probably remain the retainer location even with both patches lol.

It spread out right after the update (for now) Smiley: lol. I'm loving The Maelstrom story so far.

Although not directly related to the guilds in each city it does happen that each company has better benefits to certain classes, I've noticed that MRD is represented in LL company while GLA is in Uldah (my main fighting classes) while all three appear to have an assortment of crafting gear.

Based on this assessment I think I'll stick with the Flames but will need to see in more detail when more misisons and hopefully rewards become available.
