    Default Orien Guild "Arcane Alliance" w/ All Buffs, Amenities, and Kraken Ship Now Recruiting

    There are no requirements to be in the guild except for having fun, being polite, and helping out others if you can. We do not boot casual players from the guild. If real life or another game (god forbid!) takes your focus away from the game and you decide to come back later, your guild will be waiting for you.* The only exception to this is if the guild is at full capacity and new members want to join, then the players who have not logged on for the longest period of time will have to go first.

    Nobody is expected to pay platinum or Astral Shards to be a member, but if you feel you would like to contribute to the guild, donations are accepted in the harbor at the ship vendor near the guild ship portal. All donation go directly to upgrading the guild buffs (we have all the buffs already, but some need upgrading when the guild levels up or they ever add new buffs to fill the empty spots).

    It is also expected, but not a rule, that guild renown be selected as end rewards. Unless there is a rare drop, named item, or a tome; don't select junk loot you'd just take to the vendor - there is plenty of platinum available from the higher level guild members who would be happy to give if you ask. Guild renown is what levels up the guild which lets us upgrade some of the buffs we have.

    There are a couple of guild chests in the cargo hold and also a couple on the First Lower Deck. The items in here are available for anyone who can use them and anyone can put items in the chests they would like to share with the guild members. We try to keep useful items in here so please don't fill the chests with tumbling potions and healing kits. It should go without saying, but please don't loot the chests just to vendor it. Again, just ask a higher level character or officer for some platinum if you need it.

    If you will be upset that someone takes an item from the chest then please do not put the item in there in the first place. Any item placed in the guild chests should be put in there with the expectation that someone will take it out. We are on the honor system that people will only take what they will use, but if something ends up on the auction house and there is suspicion that it came from a guild chest, there is not much I can or will do about it. This stuff happens and since I choose to keep my guild an open to everyone guild, I do it with the expectation that at least once a year some noob will empty all of the chests and vendor everything. I consider it part of the game and an acceptable risk in order to keep the guild accessible to all.

    We don't care about language, however abusive, demeaning, or otherwise negative behavior is not tolerated in the guild and could result in expulsion if there are no efforts made to rectify the behavior in question. On the bright side, that hasn't ever happened in the many years Arcane Alliance has been on the Orien server.

    You are welcome to have as many alternate characters in the guild as you want, and if your friends want to join just have them send Ristoff a tell or mail a request.

    If you would like to become an officer, we could use all the help we can get to recruit more members. Our goal is to have enough players to run guild raids together.

    Other than that, we are all here to have a good time with great people!


    *The guild has reached full capacity, however there are many players who have not logged on in a long time so we are now in the process of only booting players who have been inactive for a very long time.

    Update: We now have a Discord voice chat server set-up. This new service is totally free and easy to use (compared to the complexity of setting up a Teamspeak server). We also have a perma-link in our guild message of the day so all you need to do is download the free software and then follow the link to automatically join the Arcane Alliance, guild-wide voice chat service.

    Great guild. If my main were not the guild leader of my single player guild I would jump ship and join. Good people to group with.

    Hey - Thanks so much for the kind words! I have had a busy summer and spent most of my DDO time doing nothing but guild management and have neglected the forums as well. I just want to let everyone know we are still active and are 1/2 way through level 82 and steadily rising.

    We are still recruiting if anyone wants to join up. Just email Ristoff in-game. Even though I have been sitting at the same level for over 6 weeks, I still log on every day to check my in-box and keep guild buffs up-to-date and such.

    We look forward to seeing you in the game!

    Default Hi, old player looking to join...

    Hi there. My time zone is central standard time, Canada. Old player just returning and going through my toons and gear, 5 years since last played. Have level 19 battle cleric, level 11 tempest drow, and several other level 4 toons (warforged, artificer, drow, and others unlocked). Several quests open such as delaras tomb, catacombs, necropolis, 3 barrel cove, etc. I'm interested in starting over from level one and running all quests free and paid and getting the most out of the adventures and monster manuals, not just running through unless help needed for specific item which I would run over and over to help all obtain it. I would like to take screen shots of hard to find or reach places like the treasure under water in 3 barrel cove ( man that was a pain to find). Have job and kids so casual not hard core player. When off during night shifts can play 5 to 7 hours. Main toon name Ivanah Humpalot.
    Thank you for your time and consideration.????

    I sent you a guild invitation if you are still looking for a guild. Casual players are always welcome - I am one myself but I do log on just about everyday to check if anyone needs anything.

    I must say that I am very happy to have found this guild. Back in September of 2016, I came to Arcane Alliance with only about 1 month of playing DDO and a had a mixed experience with a former guild (some good experiences, some bad). Since joining AA, I have had nothing but a positive experience. Officers and more experienced guild members have always been willing to help whether it be with needed gear or platinum or with more valuable advice or help in undertaking some of the more difficult quests. Having access to the combined knowledge of many people about this very complex game has been a huge help to me. Understanding how different feats and enhancements and item bonuses synergize and stack (or don't stack), I find, is the key to being more successful and getting more enjoyment from playing DDO. Guild members have never been mean when myself or someone else asks a 'noob' question or misunderstands how things work.

    Ristoff and all of the officers and more experienced players have made DDO a much more fun and positive experience for me and a lot of other newer players.

    Wow, thanks for this heartwarming review. It means a lot to hear feedback like this. Your experience is exactly what I hope for when new members join the guild. Glad to have you in our guild.

    Default still looking?

    Hi, you still doing cleanup and have any openings?
    I'm not new to DDO, I'm actually a founder, but I have had various periods playing a lot and a little over the years.

    I have several players I'm actively playing with but we just haven't found a guild that isn't a giant grind.

    Anyway, if you have an invite to send my main characters are on Thelanis currently
    Send an invite to Wildstar? Or Deslock
