Well a free companion is the ingame funcitonality to set up your guild and appart form a way to group people together it also features a few ingame advantaces.

Especially the open guild crest might come in handy if we have different people with different trades thus all gathering different items ;)

Ah, I see. So basically a guild without features and a guild with features. :P Now that I think about it, WoW guild are closer to Free Comapies. They have a guild bank and you can also make a guild tabard (like the crest).

My ARR character before I got the 3102 error which put an early end to my Phase 4 progress. But I met both Chaos and Jacob yesterday on Odin and we had fun. Although I didn't see Chaos since he was in Limsa Lominsa, but at least now he sees my terrifying toon. :P

Here are a few pictures of my character (can't decide on a single one). Unfortunately, I didn't make any where you could see the face and hair clearly.

You can join one of three free companies once you reach, if I remember correctly, level 30.

Aren't you mistaking them for Grand Companies? You can join a Grand Company at lv ~20. You get a quest to join one of them right after defeating Ifrit.

No you've got grand companions and free companions.
Both are independent companions, and you can join any free companion independent of the grand companion you joined.

I know that. Roach said you could join three Free Companies instead of three Grand Companies.

Ahh that part. You can only join 1 grand companions, though in this version it will remain possible to switch to another grand companion should you wish to do so. Don't know the levels for ARR, but I guess its around lvl 25~30 that you can start to join them.

For free companions I guess you can only have 1 free companion active, though I'm not sure if you are also limited to only join 1 at a time. The level for free companions should be lvl 25.

So its theoretically possible to join them during the beta then :P
Does anybody know the lvl you roughly need to be before you get the airship pass quest. I've already heard its part of the main story line, but I'm just wondering around which lvl it would be. Would love to get full access to the three main cities as soon as posible ;D
