Hey all! I’ve been playing SotA for about 1.5 months now. Thanks for being such a welcoming and supportive community! Background: I’m a pure mage, currently level 67, and can handle parts of tier 5 areas solo and do well helping to clear tier 5 areas like Deep Ravenswood and Ulfheim in a two player (or more) group with a good tank. I’m at a point where I’m trying to focus on gaining XP and I’m finding that it goes much faster in groups. I only know a few players in SotA and I’m looking for more opportunities to group. I’ve tried using the new grouping tool without success so far for this purpose. The only groups I’ve seen posted that appear focused on XP are for the monkey room and the Rift. Both I think are way over my head. I tried joining a monkey room group once and died before I could even find where the group was within the scene. A couple times I spent an evening in Deep Ravenswood with a seeking group setup in the group tool called “Deep Ravenswood” and “Deep Ravenswood - XP” and nobody joined. Once I tried going to Deep Ravenswood in multi-player mode, hanging around the outer edge where I can handle some of the mobs, and then sending party invites to random players I see. Over the course of an evening, 1 out of 4 accepted, so it sort of worked but I’m hoping there is a better method for finding groups. Two questions: 1) Does anyone have any advice in general on finding groups in SotA, using the grouping tool, etc? 2) Does anyone know which guilds would be good to check out considering my primary goal of grouping for XP runs? A guild that also offers access to a commission free vendor would be awesome too I’ve never joined a guild in any game before, this would be my first time. Thanks much for any advice anyone has!
