Application Process

To be considered for membership and start the application process any prospective member must have read AND fully understand our Guild Charter & Rules of Conduct. Your post should be placed within Telaran Recruits, a sub forum of our public area “The Shade War” of the Rift forums with the post subject in the format of “Application – Character Name”. Included in the post must be your Character Name, Current Level, Class, Soul make-up with your intended play styles (additional roles), and a brief statement as to why you would like to join Pak’Cafan. Failure to complete this step properly and completely will result in your application not being processed.

Once your application has been posted a recruitment officer will be in touch with you either via PM on the forums or in game within 24 hours for a brief interview and to answer any possible questions you might have. If 48 hours pass and you are still not contacted then please PM one of our current Officers that are located in this post (here). When contacted by a recruitment officer to conduct your initial interview, you will at that time be evaluated by that officer and/or as well as other officers in the officer communication channels. If Pak leadership feels you could be a good addition to our family, Cub status, a “Welcome Package” via PM, and an in-game guild invite will be extended to you. Read our rank list to find out more about our Cub rank.

Additional Info:
– There is no minimum level requirement to join Pak’Cafan. As a mature family guild, we recruit people, not the character. That said, lower level characters may have a longer cubship / recruitment process if you don’t have many guild members to group with often. Active participation in guild chat, member forums, and Teamspeak will help counteract this.

– Recruitment into Pak is not a quick fifteen-second chat. We’re looking for players who fit in well and will be members of the family. This means they should be like-minded in goals and have the same core values in an online game as we do. Only through our recruitment process can we find out that we are compatible.

– Reading the boards and understanding how we work is required. Our message boards are our primary method of communication. When creating a username on our boards please try and use a name similar to your in game name and include your alternate characters names in your signature as to identify yourself.

– The Cub period is an opportunity for us to get to know you better, and for you to get to know us better. Cub status normally lasts 30 days; at the end of the thirty days, your status will be reviewed and voted on by Leadership. All official communications from Pak Leadership and cubs will take place via PM (Private Messages) here on our message board. Upon a successful vote your rank will be promoted to Pak Hunter.

– At times people may seek membership with Pak’Cafan that are currently tagged with another guild, it should be known that Pak’Cafan does not seek out new members that are guilded already – aka “Head Hunting”. Request for membership is always initiated by the applicant on our public Rift boards and is expected that the applicant will let his/her current guild know of the request to join Pak’Cafan. If the applicant is an existing member of another guild, Pak leadership reserves the right to contact the applicant’s guild leader as a courtesy and inform them of the request for membership by said member. Pak’Cafan has a policy that prevents new applicants from applying to Pak’Cafan if they are coming from a “raiding guild” for a minimum of 14 days. This 14 day time period starts when the applicant contacts an officer with their interest in joining Pak in which they can prove that they are guildless.

– Once you have been invited as a Cub, it is expected that your alts will remain guildless until such time as you are promoted to Pak Hunter and you have them invited. Any Alts found guilded during your Cubship Period, will cause your Cubship to be suspended until we can confirm they are guldless. If it is discovered that you deliberately did not mention another guilded character while applying or willingly joined another guild during your Cubship, your application will be terminated. Characters in different servers/games do not apply. If it is the same server but opposite faction, a decision will be made on a case by case basis.

– If for any reason, during your cubship or even after being promoted to Hunter, you find that Pak’Cafan may not be the guild you are looking for, it is common courtesy to post your intent to leave on the private member forums, and de-guild yourself if applicable.

– There should not be any expectations that Pak’Cafan will power level applicants or members or help them acquire loot/gear. Pak will openly share xp/loot/gear with our family, but we will not be taken advantage of.

– For all new members / applicants (when applicable), please speak with a member of leadership for the current Raid and loot policies. We will explain them to you or send you a PM with the information so that you get the most current details. It is YOUR responsibility to know and understand these rules before you’re allowed a position in our raids.

– A chat channel is available for potential recruits INFO HERE. This was created as a 2nd Guild Chat for Alts of Cubs and for potential new recruits so that they may be able to speak to Pak’Cafan members without the ability to talk in Pak’Cafan Guild Chat.

** Please Note **
While Pak’Cafan does not have an age requirement, we are a mature guild. There will be times in guild chat and/or Teamspeak that discussions of a more adult nature may take place. If we were to put a movie rating on our guild chat, it would be ‘R’. This is not because guild chat is filled with cuss words and innuendos at all times, but rather it reflects that we are a guild mostly filled with adults and we don’t want people to have to censor themselves in guild chat or in Teamspeak.
