It's just a fancy name for "Guild".

I wonder if we could make a linkshell already or if we have to wait for the full game to be released. Either way i am really excited to start playing on the full game.

A Linkshell is in no way or form a Guild. It's simply a chat channel.

The closest thing to a Guild is a Free Company.


Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get.

Its like Oni says. A linkshell is basically another channel in your chat bar to speak instantly to all people in your Linkshell no matter where they currently are. And its already possible to create those.

The real guild like feature is a Free Companion, but you can't create one during the beta as you'll need to be lvl 25 to create one ::)

Isn't a guild pretty much just a chat channel as well? ???

Well I don't know if you're new to MMORPG but a Guild is quite different from a simple Chat Channel.

Nah, I'm not new. I've played WoW for about 2 years and the linkshell (in both FFXI and FFXIV) seems pretty similar to WoW guilds.

If really WoW Guilds are just giant chats then that game is much worse than I already thought it was.

But I'm pretty sure from what I saw that it's more than that.

Now I have to ask... what's a Free Company? Why is it that different from a Linkshell?

I think that is for doing Raids and stuff with a group of people.

The Free Company is the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn take on guilds.  Free Companies are persistent player communities.  They offer a permanent chat channel, like linkshells, but they also come with several other tools (such as forums on the Lodestone).  Free Companies are designed around the idea of structured play within a fixed network of players.

A Linkshell is a Chat Channel. It's for communication only.

Chat Channel =/= Guild

Linkshell =/= Guild

Also in FFXI Linkshells worked differently from FFXIV ones.
