Raids or Events hosted by our Alith Event Leaders are always posted in #official-events. The team do a great job at ensuring that the events are always relaxed, friendly, fun and pressure-free. You can easily identify our Event Leaders on Discord and in-game by their unique role.

EVENT TYPES
Here in Alith, we try to cater for players of ALL levels of experience. From those just looking for some social fun, to the casual gamers, to those learning & practicing some of the more challenging content and even those more confident & experienced raiders.
There's something for everyone here in Alith!
To make it super easy for you to quickly identify which raid / event is best suited to your level of experience, we have a very simple & easy to understand naming convention.All our Official Raids & Events will be clearly titled with one of the below tags, so you can be sure you're signing up for the event that matches your level of experience & play-style 🙂PRACTICE
Practice events are a great place to start, as NO previous experience is needed and anyone is able to join. We'll be learning & practicing the fight together in a relaxed & patient atmosphere.
COMPLETION
Are you done "practicing" and "learning" a fight and you're now confidently ready to get that first clear with others at the same stage? Then the Completion event is for you! Good experience & knowledge of the entire fight is necessary, since the group are going for the clear (not practice), but you don't have to have cleared it before obviously.
EXPERIENCED
Experienced events are for players who have already cleared this content before, are very confident with the entire fight. Perfect for those looking for a fast run without any learning element and possibly no callouts either. This could be events such as weekly re-clears or farming for that elusive drop!
CASUAL
These events are typically focussed on fun, easy and casual content (such as maps, fate farming, gold saucer and social events). As such, no experience is needed, there's no real learning or skill required, everyone can join and anyone can jump into these without any practice or pre-learning.

SOCIAL EVENTSFunday Sundays
Every week we hold a regular hour of fun and games, starting at our FC house! Ranging from silly fun, to games of skill, to a test of the mind - all members of any experience level can join in! And don’t forget, there’s always gil prizes up for grabs!
Member Awards Ceremony
A bi-monthly award ceremony, held at our FC house, for our members to recognise their fellow Alithians for various kind and humorous acts throughout the year!
Community Catchups
Every month, the Alith leadership team & members get together for an open "hangout & catchup" in Discord voice chat. This is a chance for the officer team to update our members on FC news and plans for the future, as well as giving our members a chance to share direct feedback, suggestions, ideas or concerns with the leadership team. Giving our members a voice to help us shape the community & involving our members in all changes, is super important to us!
Seasonal Events
Throughout the year we host several seasonal events (such as christmas, halloween, valentines, etc) with fun and games for our members to take part in, as well as the chance to win some prizes!

EVENT GUIDANCE- Endgame content can be a challenging experience so you should be prepared for some wipes. Some members will be more experienced than others, so please remain patient, understanding & supportive while not putting pressure on others in the group.- We ask that you come along to our raids with a relaxed, casual attitude, and to keep in mind that some runs will be successful & others won't- Try to log in 10-15 minutes before the start time of an event, to ensure the group is formed up and able to start on time. If you are going to be late, please notify the Event Leader with as much notice as possible but be aware they may need to take the next person who signed-up to avoid delaying the rest of the group.- Raids & Events will normally last for 2 hours unless otherwise specified, please ensure you can stay for the whole event before signing up.- Let the Event Leader know ASAP if you won’t be able to make an event, you can do this using the ‘absent’ reaction on the event post and supplying a reason via DM.- Please avoid speaking over the Event Leaders while they are providing callouts & instructions over voice.

FC RUles


As we're a casual & social Free Company, we don't impose strict rules or requirements on our members. We welcome everyone in Alith to play however they like, with whoever they want, whenever they want. There are no playtime requirements, no skill requirements, no pressure! Our community is a melting pot of people from many walks of life so all we ask is for members to be courteous & respectful of each other.We have created the below guidelines simply to ensure our community remains a friendly, pressure-free, respectful & welcoming environment. We hope you agree that the below is just common sense good manners.


FC RECRUITMENT- It is a requirement to be the age of 16 or older in order to be a member of Alith. This is due to us being an adult community, with occasional mature topics of conversation.- All players looking to join Alith must apply to our Free Company through our Discord application form. This gives new members a chance to tell us a bit about themselves before joining, so we can ensure they will fit in & be happy in Alith for the long term.- It takes just a couple of minutes to apply, after which our officers will contact you by Discord once we've had a chance to read your application. This can take up to 48 hours, but usually we'll get back to you on the same day! Thank you for your patience.


CONDUCT & BEHAVIOURThe below guidelines apply to ALL Alith communication channels
(Discord text & voice, in-game chat and social media channels)
- FC members should all be polite, courteous, respectful & considerate of others when chatting in Alith chat channels. This includes refraining from inappropriate conversations or sensitive subjects which could make others feel uncomfortable or offended. (For example: topics of a sexual nature, strong language, religious / political views, personal in-game performance etc).- Alith members are not to be made to feel inadequate on FC events / raids or put under pressure in any way and under any circumstances. Mistakes happen and all members should be patient / understanding with each other.- Insulting, name calling or being generally rude to others will not be tolerated.- Serious misconduct such as racism, verbal abuse, bigotry, bullying, repeated FC disruption or ganging up on fellow FC mates will not be tolerated and could result in removal from the FC.- Although healthy debates are welcomed, arguments between FC members should be taken in private and not aired publicly in Alith chat channels. Any personal grievances or dissatisfaction should be brought to an officer’s attention.- Encouraging or driving conflict, tension or negativity in any of our chat channels is not tolerated. We ask that members help us to defuse disagreements, reach friendly, respectful compromise and not escalate or join in.- Gil selling, use of gold sellers, botting or involvement in any scams are strictly prohibited and may result in instant dismissal from the FC. Please report anything suspicious to the officers for investigation.- All members must understand that Alith is an English Speaking FC and English must therefore be spoken at all times in FC chat & Discord. This is to ensure Alith remains inclusive & nobody feels excluded.- Members must not argue with or express derogatory opinions regarding other players (or their Free Companies) in any of our chat channels or in public. This reflects poorly on Alith and goes against our "drama-free" ethos.- Dissatisfaction with another player or FC should be discussed privately and any complaints wished to be raised, must be sent privately to an officer to deal with.- Rage quitting the FC or an FC group / raid is not acceptable, as this can cause alarm & disruption in the Free Company. If you leave the FC in this fashion, you might not be permitted to re-join in the future.- Please post responsibly and refrain from posting content of a sexually graphic nature or images which could cause offence to other members. Officers will remove images or content in these instances.- Please do not advertise any other FCs, services, sales or supplies (yours or otherwise), nor anything else that could be considered as commercial, for profit/non profit. In addition, fundraising for charitable causes, whether recognised charities or for individual benefit is not permitted on any Alith channels, including our social media pages. In the event donations are inadvertently advertised for such charities, donors do so entirely at their own risk and without any recourse via Alith, its officers or other members or responsibility thereof.- The Alith Discord server is only to be used by Alith FC members, unless authorised temporarily by an officer.- Any members who leave the FC, or are removed, will be removed from the Discord server.- Alithians should not use the Alith server to post recruitment adverts for other FC's, and should not post invitations to other FC's Discord servers in the communal channels.- We ask our members to refrain from forming separate / private Discord servers, linkshells, FC's or other community platforms with the title "Alith" included in it. This is to avoid confusion about what is an official Alith group and can also lead players to believe Alith FFXIV officers are responsible for what happens in those communities.- The usage of @everyone, @members and @here is restricted to officers, to avoid frequent use of this. If you have a specific / exceptional reason you would like to use one of these tags, please contact an FC Officer who can assist.


LIVE STREAMING & RECORDING- Please inform ALL participants in Discord and / or party chat that you wish to live stream or record the event. If anyone objects, recording and live streaming is not permitted.- FC Chat must not be visible on your stream / recording. Party chat may be included provided ALL participants have given permission.


FREE COMPANY CHEST- Withdrawals should be made in moderation. Items withdrawn are strictly for your personal use & needed, and not for selling for gil or trading to non FC members.- Withdrawals can be made from tabs 1 to 4 of the FC chest freely. High value items in tab 5 can be withdrawn from an officer via a request.- Storage of personal items in the FC chest is prohibited. Anything placed in the FC chest is at risk of being removed by another member. Alith is not responsible in this event.- You may not reserve items.- Gil donations to the FC chest will only be used for genuine FC expenses and event prizes.- While we appreciate the intentions, please refrain from “cleaning” or “organising” the FC chest on our behalf.- Officers may occasionally withdraw low value "junk" items, in order to free up space in the chest. Removed items will be sold and profits donated to the FC funds - which goes back to the members.- No loans will be given to members (or officers) from FC funds. If we did it for 1 person, we'd have to do it for all, and this can't be sustained.


FREE COMPANY BUFFS- Buffs are determined by majority votes on buff surveys and will have a fixed schedule (subject to change). Officers & Staff will do their utmost to ensure buffs are continuous but this can not be guaranteed at all times and is subject to staff availability.- Ad-hoc temporary change requests to specific buffs are permitted.
Requests must be made directly to an Officer or Staff Member who will check in FC chat for objections. Should no objections be raised the buff will be replaced accordingly and for all the while no members request to revert or natural expiry whichever comes first.
- Any subsequent request to revert back to schedule will take priority and be implemented immediately.- Event Leaders may activate "Food Buffs" during official Alith FC raids.- Officers will activate certain buffs during specific seasonal events (such as where MGP rewards are enhanced for example).


ALITH PARTIES & EVENTSYou can read more about our raiding rules over at our Alith Events dedicated page.- Groups comprising of non FC members, should be advertised as such in FC chat when trying to recruit FC members.- Joining non-Alith in-game groups, discord servers or voice coms, are strictly outside of Alith’s jurisdiction.- Rage quitting in FC groups or events is not acceptable. Any conflict between members must be dealt with in private and at the end of the run.- If you are attending s scheduled FC Raid Event, you must ensure to arrive on time (or you may be replaced).
