  • About Us:


  • Lotus is a raiding guild that will reside on the Wutai server in Final Fantasy XIV. We are comprised of veterans from other MMO’s and talented newcomers alike and boast a mature and intelligent membership with the majority of our members being college students and working professionals. We have a modest raid schedule compared to many high-end guilds, roughly 20-24 hours per week during progression and when content has been completed we raid dramatically less than that. Our mantra in Lotus is to "raid smarter, not harder." We constantly strive to maximize our time and raid as efficiently as possible

  • Qualities we look for in players:


  • Teamwork - First and foremost, we are a team at Lotus. We want players who can function in a group, communicate effectively, and execute a given role.

    Analytical -
    We greatly value players who consistently look for ways to contribute to overall raid optimization and strategy. Analyzing your own performance and striving for constant improvement is a must.

    Competitive - We want players who seek to be the best at their class and role. We aren't interested in meter chasers who put their own performance over the good of the raid but we do want people who bring friendly competition into our guild and will challenge our current raiders at their roles.

    Awareness - We look for players who know how to adapt and react to their surroundings while still playing near peak performance. Dodging black holes of death is a must!

    Dedication and reliability - show up consistently and on time

    Social - We want people who are interested in participating in guild activities outside of raids. If you are only logging in for raids and logging off as soon they end, we may not be the home for you.

  • Applicant requirements:


  • * A stable internet connection and a computer decent enough to not lock up or lag consistently
    * The ability to listen and respond on Ventrillo
    * Minimum raid attendance is 75%
    * Players who can accept constructive criticism and who are dedicated to constantly improving their performance

  • What we have to offer:


  • * A tight roster of dedicated players who show up to raids prepared and ready to progress
    * A fun raid environment that's fairly laid back and casual while still pushing content.
    * A stable, fun and welcoming guild atmosphere; we are drama free and personable - most of our members are university students or young working professionals
    * A fair attendance based loot system that awards gear based on getting progress. We don't play favorites, period.
    * An active group of players who sign on for groups and general fun outside of raids
    * Competitive progression with an extremely light raid schedule
    * A focused and efficient raid environment
    * An active leadership who is open to suggestion

    I will certainly keep this in mind. Played FFXI while still in college but had very little time to invest into it; Now that I'm working it may be a little bit easier.

    Since you have a mature group, will that mean most raids / events will be occurring over the weekends or weeknights? Also, do you follow EST or on the west coast?

    We will be scheduling most raids on week nights when they release that content, with additional optional raids on weekends. We are mostly a CST & EST guild witch means our raids should start between 7PM - 8PM CST and end 11PM-12AM. We like our raiders to have enough time to get off work/college, get settled at home and get ready for the raid.

    I second.

    Again this isn't WOW recruitment forums.

    Please use the FF XIV terms so you won't confuse anybody. Check your OTHER post in this forum for any idea of what kind of words you should use to be understandable by the community :http://ffxiv.zam.com/forum.html?forum=211&mid=1284319945319391643&page=1

    Oh and please, don't bump 2 posts of the same guild in a forum where there's like 6 post in it.

    I don't like flaming or "help out violently" some people, but seriously guys, again, this isn't WoW and 2 posts won't get you more members, just more ignoring it.

    ventrilo will work against you when you realize we will be playing with

    A) console players come march

    B) people from other regions

    Unless of course, your planning to exclude all of them.

    How can you expect Ventrillo to hurt us, when it is practically impossible to type and play at the same time. yes we will require our console members to have a PC near by to atleast allow them to hear event dialog................. Enough with the flaming wow!

    As a response to regions, that doesnt come into play because of scheduled times of raiding. We will be running EST Alpha and Beta squads, CST Squad, and PST squad. Also you forget most EU gamers speak english, and utilize vent.

    Seriously? Know what happened in games before Vent? They typed. They were still highly organized and got the job done in great fashion. You mind as well expect your members to dual-box PC/PS3 XIV while you're at it.

    Actually, I will be 2box ps3/pc aswell as 7 other of our members. If you got a problem with vent then your not for us, just stop flaming about it, those people who have used vent know how much easier it makes things, especially in this game since you have white dmg you have to always be doing an ability, which makes it especially dificult to type, and regards to fixing the old post joque is on vaca and i dont have access to his account.
