Once again fairly new to the game. I sort of know how link shells work but at the same time I don't know that much about them. I know they work like a communication device for groups of people. But other than that I don't know anything else. Also looking for a casual link shell group in Fabul if anyone has an open spot

Linkshells are like parties, but for chat, basically. You use them to speak with everyone in your 'shell regardless of where they are.

Becoming a member of a Linkshell is like joining a group of friends. You can talk, work together, and generally support one another throughout the game. That's pretty much all there is to it.

Oh, also, each 'shell gets to make their own little shield-crest-thing, which is kind of neat. Try not to join one that's, say, purple and yellow zig-zags. Only crazy people join those kinds of Linkshells; some say it's because the colours mix together in such a contending manner that it causes the mind to enter a state of permanent and unquenchable frenzy. You've been warned.

Lol... Thank you for the help but I thought about making one for myself and a couple of people I have met on here but I wan't sure if you make one for each person or how that works. I believe I saw something like 8 or 10 link shell slots which is why I was wondering this also.

Purple and yellow triangles are all fun & games, though.

You can join 8(?) linkshells in total.

It just means you can be a part of up to 8 different groups, and also see the chat from all of them (or filter some of it if you want).

Each linkshell can hold up to 128 members, all you need to do get people to join yours, is target them and "Invite to Linkshell".

Ok I do actually have one more question now... Do the colors actually mean stuff as well as the style? Just wondering so I don't have someone flip out cause the colors are one way or by choosing a certain symbol. The one post made me think something like this maybe the case.

Heh, no. Linkshell emblems don't matter at all. Kane and I were just joking around.
Just pick one you like.

There is an unwritten consensus among most players that the swastika linkshell theme is in bad taste - and also that, indeed, it was a strange option for SE to provide in the first place.

Yes, I'm joking. XD


Oh, also, I never thought someone here would actually have a yellow-and-purple-zig-zag linkshell (I assumed that they all tore one another apart in the endless wilds by now). Judging from the fisticuffs that go down - among members, no less - it looks as though my advice was spot-on (and that I'll have to watch my back from this point forward o_o).
