Paradox is looking for members for our earlier event time hours going into phase 4 and launch.
Recruitment open for serious players. NA Restricted, EU Open.
To provide an outlet for players to enjoy and advance through Final Fantasy 14 in an environment that is productive and fair with those who desire nothing else but to be the best as a player, member, and participant of the in-game community.
What is Paradox:
Paradox is a guild designed to be self-sufficient and allow members to do all functions of the game in one group. We are a dedicated group of players and have structured the LS in a way that has brought us success since Paradox was established in Jan 4, 2006.
Paradox began its life as an HNM shell on Final Fantasy 11 back on Jan 4th 2006. After a successful start we quickly expanded into a large endgame LS covering all areas of the game. We quickly matched and exceeded the levels of our main competitors in the following year. At the end of 2008 we transferred to the server Fenrir where we were the dominate force in endgame since day 1. In version 1 of XIV we were one of the few guilds to survive since its release, and have accomplished all of the game’s content before shutdown. With the release of ARR on the horizon, we plan on moving into the new game to meet the challenges before us and to continue our long established tradition of excellence.
Currently in FFXIV:
We have been active since the game’s start and continued to be active all the way to the end of the world in 1.0. In ARR we will be focused heavily into endgame with plans to immediately enter the new content when it is released. Events run every day, starting at the earlier hours of the day and going all the way to the midnight (noon-midnight EST).

Basic Requirements to Join:
• Serious about FFXIV - This is not the place for you to "try out the game/patch". Members are expected to play consistently over time.
• Serious about endgame - This is not a social. While we understand people have real lives, we expect you to participate with the LS during events when you are able to be online.
• Willingness to improve - We expect members to have the desire to improve. This includes learning and adapting to new strategies. Some events may require specific job setups, so members will be expected to level up necessary jobs.
• Dedication - We allow members to be in social Linkshells, but we make it a requirement that you participate in events with Paradox during event hours. Being dedicated to Paradox, members are limited to having Paradox as their only endgame LS. Members cannot be in 2 endgame guilds due to a conflict of interest.
• Good Attitude – A good attitude is a requirement to have when talking on teamspeak and in LS chat. No forum drama or ‘trolling’.
• Know what you are joining - We are not a casual guild, if you want casual then you will not enjoy Paradox.
