You don’t have to go it alone. You can Group with other players to take on the challenges of the world. In order to Group with other players you must first invite them. There are several ways you can accomplish this. First, you can simply right-click on a player and choose the option "Invite to Group". You can also right-click on the Target Status Bar that appears when the player is targeted. You can Group with anyone that is a member of your race, and not currently a member of another Group. Group sizes are limited to six people, so for larger missions you may wish to work with multiple groups to form an <a href="Alliance">Alliance</a>.

Group Menu


<html>


<tbody></tbody>
To access the group menu, right-click on a group member’s icon in the Group Window. You will be able to perform several actions: Invite, Leave Group, Ban from Group, Entrust Group Leader Author, Group Distribution, Distribution Settings, and Zoom in/out Group Window.

</html>


Invite/ Leave Group


<html>


Only the Group Leader can invite people to the group, but anyone is welcome to leave the group at any time.

</html>

Kick from Group/Entrust Leadership


<html>


It may be necessary to remove certain players from your group. Right-click on that player and select Kick From Group.

 

After you have created a group, you may have to leave before all of the fun is over. Instead of disbanding the group, you can Entrust Leadership to another player so they can change characteristics of the group, such as Distribution. If the Leader leaves the group due to a computer problem or disconnection, he will remain as leader for two minutes, allowing him to return. If the leader leaves the group, it will automatically fall to the next player in the group.

Group Distribution


<html>


<tbody></tbody>
This is a one-time distribution of Kinah that splits the amount you set amongst all of the members of the Group.

</html>

Distribution Settings


<html>


<tbody></tbody>
Distribution Settings affect how Groups claim their just rewards in battle. The Loot Rules define access to the loot of defeated enemies. Free-for-All means whoever gets there first, lays claim to the loot. Round-robin allows everyone to have a chance to claim some loot. Then there is the Group Leader; only the Group Leader is allowed to claim the loot.

 

Now that the matter of "who" gets to loot first is sorted out, there comes the matter of what to do with the really good loot (rare items and above). Normal allows for whomever claims the fallen loot would be able to claim anything that was found. There are two ways that anything other than Normal Items are divided. They can be rolled for by selecting Roll Dice, which allows chance to decide who gets the item. You can also bid on them using Settle Account. In either case you can select the level of rarity at which you decide to roll or bid for the item.

Zoom in/out Group Window


<html>


As a matter of visual convenience, you can make the size of the group window larger or smaller on your UI.

</html>

Finding Group Members


<html>


Open your <a href="Social+Window">Social Window</a> (V). From your Friends List or the Search tab, you can right-click and invite them to join the Group. You can also put out a clickable invite by pressing the Invite button at the bottom of your friends tab. This will add <Recruit Group> to the chat box message where you can activley seek out players for specific missions.

LFG


<html>

You can manage the entire grouping process with the Find Group window, and receive alerts when listings are updated or added!

I Want to Lead a Group or Alliance


<html>


Want to lead a group in to battle? Or perhaps you have a few groups and need that Pièce de résistance -- the final member in the Alliance?

 

Shift + V brings up the Find Group window and will land you in the Recruit Group Members tab by default.

 

<tbody></tbody>

 

You will see a list of others recruiting Group Members (if there are any) and you can choose to join an existing Group. For that topic see the paragraph below on <a href="Party#What_If_I_Just_Want_to_Join_a_Group.3F">joining a group</a>.

 

First, Check the Apply for Group Tab

 

<tbody></tbody>
This is where you will find solo players looking to join a Group or Alliance. To keep an eye on new or updated posts: Enable Auto search when window is closed to place a search icon by your Quickbar, which will flash when posts are added or updated.

More information on the <a href="Party#Auto_Search_Functionality">Auto Search Functionality</a>

 

Double-click on any listing to see the player’s information and invite them to a group or right-click to see options.

 

<tbody></tbody>

Apply for Group tab displaying player information

Right-click: Options

 

If there are too many posts to sort through, use the Search options and Keywords to narrow down the results.

 

  Choose Group or Alliance depending on your interest.
  Change the level range if needed.
  Sort by a specific Class.
  Add in a keyword, such as Fire Temple or NTC, to narrow the results even further.

 

Now, Here’s How to Recruit Group Members

 

Clicking on Send Offer will bring up the window shown below. Text allows you 49 characters, so make it short and sweet. Group or Alliance can be picked as Type from the drop-down. 

 

  If you choose Group, the post will remain active until you have 6 members or you delete the post.
  If you choose Alliance, the post will remain active until you have 24 members or you delete the post.

 

<tbody></tbody>

 

When you’re ready, click Register and a <Recruit Group> message will be sent to the Local and Looking For Group channel (channels 1 and 3).

 

<tbody></tbody>


You cannot send more than one offer at a time, although clicking the Send Offer button will allow you to edit your existing offer.

 

** Please note that the conditions below will automatically remove your post:

 

  If you join another player’s Group or Alliance.
  If you logout or are disconnected from the game server.

 

What Happens When I Get a Response?

 

When a player applies for your group, you will receive a whisper giving you the option to either <Invite to Group> or <Reject Group>. If you accidentally choose reject, you can still choose Invite without the player having to re-apply.

What If I Just Want to Join a Group?


<html>


There’s no shame in being a follower, after all, leading a group can be a stressful and (at times) thankless task. With the new Find Group interface, locating a group has never been simpler.

 

If you don’t want to lead a group, you can choose from the following options (all of which are well accommodated through the Find Group interface):

 

  Locate more players to form a small group.
  Join an existing group in the Recruit Group Members tab.
  Let someone else find you.

 

Finding a Companion or Forming a Small Group

 

When you open the Find Group window (Shift + V) it will take you to the Recruit Group Members tab by Default. Switch to the Apply for Group tab and see if you can find what you are looking for.

 

<tbody></tbody>


The Apply for Group tab is a place for solo players to put their name out and get back to playing while they wait. It’s also for those who hate asking, “Can I join your group please?”

 

If you see something that peaks your interest, you can double-click to see the player’s information and invite them to a group (as shown above) or right-click to see options.

 

** Don’t forget to enable Auto search when the window is closed to receive alerts when posts are added or updated. For more details, see the <a href="Party#Auto_Search_Functionality">Auto Search Functionality</a> paragraph below.


 If you didn’t find what you were looking for, consider one of the other two options below.

 

Joining an Existing Group

 

Open the Find Group window (Shift + V).


The Recruit Group Members tab is where you will find Groups looking for members.


At a glance, you can see if it’s a Group or Alliance, what they are looking for, who the leader is, how many members they already have, and the level range of the players in the Group.

 

<tbody></tbody>


Caption: Recruit Group Listings – Showing options available via right-click

 

If there are numerous posts to sort through, use the Search options and Keywords to narrow down the results.

 

  Choose Group or Alliance depending on your interest.
  Adjust the level range if needed.
  Add in a keyword, such as Fire Temple or NTC, to narrow the results even further.

 

If you find a post that looks worthwhile, right-click to see options or double-click to get the group’s information and apply for the group.

 

If you’re ready, choose Apply for Group. This will send a request to the Group/Alliance leader for approval. They can choose to either invite you to join or reject the offer. Invitations will prompt you to join their group, while rejections will send you a polite refusal via chat.

 

If you still haven’t found what you are looking for, perhaps it’s time to put up a general application and get back to playing the game.

 

Seeking Group—Invite Me If You’re Interested!

 

To put a post up and let someone else find you, go to the Apply for Group tab of the Find Group window (Shift + V).

 

Click the Apply button

 

Type in some text describing what you are looking for, but keep it short as there is a 49 character limit in this field. Level, Class, and Group should be left alone as these will be detected automatically.

 

<tbody></tbody>


When you click Register, an <Apply for Group> message will be sent to the Local and Find Group Channel (channels 1 and 3).

 

<tbody></tbody>


<tbody></tbody>
<tbody></tbody>
Make sure to check off Auto search when window is closed. That will place the search icon near your Quickbar, which will flash <tbody></tbody>
if a post is either added or updated. 

 

Once you join a group, your post will automatically be removed from the Find Group window.

Auto Search Functionality


<html>


<tbody></tbody>
When you turn on the auto search feature, a search icon is placed near your Quickbar. If there are any updates to a post or any new posts are created, the search icon will flash, and you will receive an alert letting you know that there are new posts meeting your search criteria.


Facts about the Auto search function:


  The Auto search feature is turned off by default.
  It must be turned on manually in both the Recruit Group Members and Apply for Group tabs if you want to receive updates. If you only turn it on in one tab, you will only receive alerts for that tab.
  Posts are updated every few minutes, meaning your search icon will not flash immediately after the Find Group listings are updated.
