Hi guys,

I am on Limsa Lominsa and currently level 14 Lancer. Today I went to Girdania(spelling?) and could not join the lancer guild because my character is from LL. BUMMER! What should I do? To my knowledge, the different guilds offer perks that you would not get otherwise.

Can you change your starting city or do I even have to? Just want to be in the Lancer guild.

There's no way to change cities right now, but you don't need to in order to join the various guilds. All you need to do is level up your class to level 20. As you are 14, you have a little ways to go. After that you can go to the guild and do your first class quest. After that quest, you are then considered a part of that guild. Right now though there aren't any benefits or perks associated with them. In the past, we used to get guild marks that we could trade in for skills and abilities, but this system was suspended some time ago until the devs decide how they want to re-implement it. So for the time being, the only thing you get out of it are some story quests.

I should also add that you aren't limited to only one guild. You can do the story quests for every class in every guild, it's really just a story mechanism at this point and has no real bearing on gameplay.

Variety is the spice of life. Except on Dune, where it's worm poo.

It doesn't matter which city you start in. From your guild as of now, you get periodic quests for weapons and stuff. The guild mark system is temporarily suspended or something. Not sure I wasn't playing when they were issued. As for the quests I know you get a weapon quest at 20 lancer and I just received one when I hit 30.

Your starting city doesn't matter. You join the Lancer guild when your Lancer hits level 20.
