No, a linkshell is a linkshell. If it compares to what you would call guilds in other games, as in a select group of people all confined to a single chat room, usually with a ranking structure, then yes.

linkshells are closest to being exclusive chat channels. thats what most guilds are, but some have advanced features, which we may see implemented with companies.

OK so since Linkshells aren't technically a guild, are there something like guilds in FFXIV? Something where we can always find the people we want to be with, can organize events with in game, have a hierarchy with etc? Some newer MMOs also allow you to level up your guild. Is there anything like that here?

Just curious. Always loved being in my guild.

SE said something about companies to fill the roll, but we haven't seen anything on them yet.


In FFXI you would have end-game linkshells that would fill the roll of guilds in other games. The problem was that you could only see LS chat while you had the LS equiped, so you would have to leave your social LSs while you did stuff with your end game LS. Luckily, XIV lets you equip multiple linkshells, so hopefully this won't be as bad of a problem.


Speak of that, has anyone figured out how to quickly change equiped linkshells, or chat in a non-active LS?

Have you tried /ls#?

For example /ls1 <chat>
/ls2 <chat>

etc etc

i think there are going to be linkshells, which are social, and companies, which are all about business.

i think.
