Hi. I am over 40 and looking for a Guild now that there are Guild Perks available from v5.10 "Guild Leveling" update. Is the Elders leveling up and getting guild perks?

Yes! We are level 13 as of today and have most perks unlocked because we've always worked on conquest and unlocking areas of our ship.

Just want to say what being in the Elders guild is like for me. I'm old and know how to yell "get off my lawn!". That is about as drama-filled as this guild gets. It's a relaxed, safe place to play either solo or in a group. We try to reach our conquest goal each week but nobody asks us to do that. If we don't reach it, then no big deal. If we do reach it, then great. There are no quotas to fill, no obligations (other than being nice to each other), no pressure. Just have fun and enjoy the game.

We have a Friday night 16 man training run for everybody. If you're new to the game, or back from an absence, or want to try a new class or spec or whatever, then these runs are for you. It's always a story mode op and we bring just enough heavy hitters to help us through without actually carrying everyone.

If you want stress and drama, then this guild is not for you. If you want a safe place to play, to learn, to have fun, then this guild is definitely for you. One of our main rules is that real life always comes first. You can play around your real life schedule and nobody yells at you for that. This is the safest guild I've ever belonged to and plan to stay for as long as I"m playing swtor.

<Elders of the Republic> has started reserving the last Friday of each month to run a training operation with our sister guild <Elders of the Sith>. It's been nice to pull out our Imperial characters for change and have fun with lightning, dark wards, etc. What operations do we run? Unless one or more of our players have a strong preference otherwise, we'll often choose an operation that coincides with a conquest operation for the week. We have no conquest requirements in our guild. Players who participate in conquest do so because that is the way they like to play the game. However, completing a select 16-toon operation can pull in a staggering amount of conquest points for a guild, which has a subsidiary benefit within the current guild ranking system.

We're a guild for people over 40 years of age. Come check out our Elders of the Republic website and join us on Discord. You can also join us by searching for who: Elders in the social window. Someone should be able to send you a guild invite.

Every Friday Night we have a guild op on Pub side and get a good turnout. At the end of each month we do an op on imp side. That's this Friday! We have in-game events and more to enjoy and help you find community in Elders of the Republic.

As of today the Republic side of our guild has 5/6 rooms unlocked on the flagship with the last to be opened very soon! We are guildship level 32 which means a 13.9% bonus to reputation and experience and a 6.2% bonus to cxp.

We're stilling running our Friday night 16 man training runs as well as flashpoints etc whenever anyone is on that wants to run. There is no pressure; it's great if we can get a group together but if someone is not in the mood, that's okay, too. Our number one rule is Real Life Comes First - no questions asked.

This is a safe, relaxed guild to learn, relax, hang out wtih friends or push hard mode content if that's what you want to do. The elders who have been playing for a long time enjoy helping and teaching new members; they have the attitude that we can all learn from each other. So if you're 40 and/or over and want to join a laid back guild come talk to us. We just might be what you're looking for.

I am *well* over the age of 40 - but I heard a while back that in common with many guilds on this server you were mostly in west coast or oceanic time zones and guild chat was pretty dead until late at night my time (I am east coast).

Is that still true?

I am not looking for a lot of guildmates to be on to run operations - if I wanted that I would be on Star Forge. But I do want a guild with a somewhat active typed chat so there are people to talk to and occasionally run less challenging content with that can be done with a single group.

Hello Istvana,

I would say that Elders tends to be most active during prime time for the US West coast. The weekly training op on Friday nights starts at 9pm Pacific time. However, recently there seem to be more and more people who play at earlier times and I know of some who regularly do flashpoints and PVP at other times.

My advice is to do a /who and search for Elders during the times you are most active to see how many people are on. You could also search for the Elders 'Guilded' channel or Discord to see who is on while you are playing or even have an alt join the guild to see how things are. The Elders guild is very informal with essentially no requirements other than age. Everyone knows and understands that real life is the first priority. Many enjoy helping others experience parts of the game that are new to them and it is easy to plan things you would like to do and get help if needed.
