Founded in late July, 2009, Avantia is a currently a 17 member Linkshell. As opposed to throwing a million disorganized people at every fight... we are looking for sensible people who are willing to tough out fights with smaller groups working well together.
What we do, times we do it, and what we'll do in the future
Kirin or Sea (depending on numbers) -- 6-9 PM PST, Wednesday; 3-6ish PM PST, Sunday
Sea -- 6-9 PM PST, Friday.
*We also farm Sky from time to time, but Sea/Kirin are our focuses.*
Runs are required, but advance notice if you'll miss or emergencies aren't going to lead to any drama; we just want some reliability/honesty. Our loot distribution and scheduling systems are straightforward and transparent, and members who want to have influence on where this LS goes will have influence. Contact me with any questions/concerns.
Sky/Sea access are required.
Jobs: You must have one of the following jobs at 75 (and be willing to show up on that job): BLM, SCH, BRD, SMN, THF, COR. You will not always be asked to come as this job. Send a tell in-game with any questions. *Exceptions may be made for exceptionally well-geared/merited melee jobs, apply if you think this could be you.*
About half of our membership has a lot of experience with all things endgame, and can deal with all the nuts and bolts of tactics, so extensive endgame experience is not required, though it's preferred. We mostly want good attitudes, the ability to put your fullest into your job, and willingness to be on time and check the forums.
The ideas behind keeping things small are:
-It's a lot less drama and stress to coordinate a small group of skilled, attentive players than a sprawling group of randoms, loot-n-scooters, etc. We want reliable, skilled players working as an efficient team.
-It will be easier to get everyone what they want in a shorter amount of time.
-Building a real community of friends instead of just an avenue to get loot. All of the current members have known one another for quite some time. We hope that a tight-knit group will go beyond the personal gains and more towards everyone becoming great long-term friends.
-It's more fun to actually have to put effort into fights and accomplishing things as opposed to just throwing 50 people at stuff.
