  1. I am recruiting for the ROOT CLAN/GUILD on Blade & Soul! We are looking for any type of player, casual, hardcore. Those who are interested in doing the best at both PVP and PVE content! Preferably 40+ in level. We have a crafting ring in the set up. So contribution is nice too. This is start up for a multigaming guild. We currently have several waiting for Tree of savior. We have a Discord ready. Quite a few people on at a time, hopefully we can make it grow and become more active. Have everyone in the guild be a close nit of people regardless of size.

People who are nice, kind, obviously. Any timezone is welcome. ----- Why are we called ROOT? Well its a word with a variety of meaning. And the guild was conceptualized a while ago, about 2-3 years ago? And it took root during the Tree of Savior international Betas. ROOT having a natural meaning, but it can also have a tech feel. Though its a strong part of a plant that holds it up and nourishes it. Its the beginning of something and a cause. I thought it sounded interesting for a group of gamers. People who want to be good, and have fun.

      Neoyoshi

      To be more specific, the regions are now separated with their own boxes now, so there is no having to worry about finding out what the name of what regional server is, just use the Toggle option in the Launcher, and you'll be all set.

    4. Zazaaji

      Zazaaji

      The NA servers are Mushin, Iksanun, and Jiwan. Mushin is by far the most populated.

      The staff behind it matters a lot. If they let people treat each other badly those kinds of people dominate the community.
