My linkshell is always looking for new people, and we don't care what your experience level is. We're happy to show you the ropes and have a place to come and socialize. We have crafters who would be more than willing to give you gear (for free) as long as you're willing to help out others in the future! If you're interested, you can check out our website: http://aessedaitower.webs.com
and send a /tell in game. Here's a list of people you can look for who can give you a pearl.
If you post your character name, I'll look out for you too! Hope to see you in game!
