Aurora, I'm totally down with helping you the best I can. I lead the <very small> guild LODatass, and it's mostly just 5-6 of my IRL friends with our various characters. I've been talking with them a lot more, and while we don't have the greatest of DPS just yet, we want things to change.
My main partner in-game is constantly infuriated by the way Free Knights treats its own members, and I'm starting to understand more and more why we are doing this. We DO need to unify this friggin faction, and I think your way of doing it will be best.
More or less, we have been working on this by trying to take over various parts of the AH (we owned the bikes section for almost a week, and one of my guildies actually bought every unsealer on the market), so that we can just hold them and wait. I know I have been trying to buy pet chips, among other things, just to hoard them. The point of it isn't for us to re-sell when things get out of control, but for us to start focusing on gather some gold so that we can be of more use to the faction as a whole. At this point, I plan on handing things out to people that I feel could really use some help, such as Pearlflames, HP/SP pet data chips, +6 good gear, etc. I think this will be of more use as the economy breaks even harder, and it might help some people stick around when things get worse.
That all being said, my guild (again, a very small one at this point, but we've at least gotten to level/rank 3) would be happy to help in whatever way we are able. I love the enthusiasm that you put out Aurora, and I'm always glad to see Sunless and Hentai floating around and doing what they can to help players do Naomi or just to defend others who were just grinding or doing a mini-boss, or really anything. I would like to talk with you at some point about what we can do about helping more of the Free Knights get into shape, and actually give the RG something more to look forward to than just literally walking casually into our base in Caergate to take our chest.
After I get off of work tomorrow, you can bet that I will be floating around on PolishMyGun to try and help you and your cause.
