How to Find the Right Guild in SWTOR

Are you a new player or previously unguilded player looking for the right guild in SWTOR? Well, this game, like any MMO, is designed to have social aspects. While you can play solo and you certainly don’t have to have a guild in order to enjoy parts of the game, it does bring a lot to the table when you find a good one.

Some players were part of multi-gaming guilds that moved over to SWTOR from previous games they were playing. But for others, the search for a guild can be daunting. Here are some tips on how to find and get into a good guild:

Play the game: First, play the game for awhile first. This will give you the very important opportunity to first see what it is you like about the game and how you want to play and then find a guild that meets your playstyle the best.
Group with others: As you are playing and getting to know the game, group up with others when you can. This will help you to be social. Say hi when you enter a group and communicate with groups when appropriate.
Add to friends: When you group with someone that you like, add them to your friends’ list to build connections and so you can connect with them again later.
Know your stuff: Make a good guild want you by reading up on your class, playing like you know your stuff and being a contributable member of groups and events. You want to be a credit to the team and a player that others want on their side. So make yourself desirable to good guilds if you hope to get into one.

Invite people from your friend’s list to group: When you find those people you enjoy playing with, invite them to group with you. Don’t spam or be annoying but if you genuinely enjoyed playing with the, don’t be afraid to reach out again in the future.

As we discuss how to get into a good guild in SWTOR, we also need to take a look at what makes a bad guild or signs that you should probably avoid a guild. If you’re a guild leader looking to expand your guild then these are the things you most definitely want to avoid.

  • Spamming- inviting anyone and everyone to the guild
  • Leadership cannot see eye to eye
  • Nice to you or nice to guildies but treats non-guildies poorly
  • Guild is trying to take advantage of you
  • Wants you to pay an entry fee

Guild leaders: Don’t be like this guy!
