Only Leaders Can Send Squad Cards
Squad Cards can only be sent by Squad Leaders and Sub-Leaders. Squad Cards can also only be edited by the leaders of the squad.
Can Join Squads Even If Not In Same Session
Once you receive a Squad Card invite, you can join the Squad even if you're not in the same online session as the one who sent it to you. You can check which invites you have to compare which Squads you want to join.
Benefits Of Joining A Squad
Use Online Sessions Specifically For Members
One of the main benefits of being part of a Squad is you can be part of a private online session that is only available to Squad members. This makes hunts more cooperative & efficient.
Use Squad Member Only Chat
Since you're in a private online session with fellow Squad mates, your chat will be exclusive between members. This will greatly benefit coordination of posting quests, hunting monsters, etc.
How To Create A Squad
Go To Gathering Hub's Squad Counter
To create a Squad, simply talk to the Event Manager behind the Squad Counter. You can choose your Squad's emblem, color, and greetings.
How To Join A Squad
Squad Counter Can Also Help You Join Squad
