Remnants of Hope
Our Gaming Community
The Remnants of Hope began as a community in 2009 as a Star Wars Galaxies guild. Over the last four years, we've experienced many changes, but we remain true to a single purpose: creating a community and home for members. Even now, many of the original founders call Remnants of Hope home, and we continue to grow and prosper with the help of the many exceptional members we add to our ranks.
We are a community that prides itself on diversity and maturity. People from all walks of life are welcome here. We strive to be a place where our members can relax and truly enjoy the time they have. It is our belief that "light from the few can be a beacon to many," and this has been a key aspect of our community's story and also something we constantly translate over into real life. Our goal is to shine and reach out to those we meet and interact with, to empower our members and the gaming community as a whole, and to make a positive mark on the world around us.
Games We Play
Remnants of Hope is a fantastic place to call home, and currently focuses on playing three games in an official capacity: Star Wars: The Old Republic, Guild Wars 2, and the newly-released Final Fantasy XIV: ARR. We also play many casual games, from League of Legends to Star Trek Online and more, and invite all our members to join in if they choose.
RMNTS: A FFXIV Free Company
While we are newcomers to FFXIV: ARR, Remnants of Hope has always prided itself on exploring all aspects of the games we play, and offering a unique and diverse array of options in the different fields. Be it varying types of role-play, PvE, crafting, or even PvP, we are always working to ensure you have opportunities to enjoy the game.
Player vs. Environment
Our community takes on and excels at PvE content. In our other games we have well-established groups who tackle new and challenging content and always make time to train new people and team leaders, as well. In FFXIV, we are looking to honor that legacy and build a strong and diverse roster of people for everything from leveling parties to tackling end-game content as we enjoy the diverse PvE options available.
Casual Gamers: You are free to explore the game and its content at your own speed.
Hardcore Gamers: We will strive to keep you busy with with runs of content, with a focus on progression.
The crafting system in FFXIV is like no other, with a diverse and symbiotic relationship with the other disciples of the hand and land, and a true need to work together to accomplish goals. To that end, we will help crafters find a home within the community, with other crafters to interact with and obtain necessary materials, as well as helping members develop and pursue their goals. With the Materia system and impressive end-game craftables, you should always find yourself in demand within our community.
