I was debating this last night, decided to ask Fog what *he* was doing.  In a nutshell, it doesn't matter in the long run.  We'll be splitting time in both.  I'll let him reveal what he chose to home/guest to, but I decided to go with choosing the 5 day non-Vet as my Home camp and Thornblade as my guest, since TB is a 30 day and Blackwater is a 5 day. 

Overall, its just easier to switch and the only reason that we really need a Home campaign are for Emp leaderboard and the buffs that you get from Keeps and Scrolls that your faction owns in your home campaign.  With these new campaigns, it won't be so easy to maintain your home AvA buffs all of the time, like it was before.

I declared my home as the under 50 and my guess as the 30 day. That call is entirely up to you. The majority of our families  events will be on the 30 day campaign. Our Tuesday event will be on the under 50 to try to find some new blood.

So to clarify - the Under 50 campaign is on Blackwater while the vet campaign is on Thornblade

 Home Campaigns: 

Thornblade - The majority of our events will be here.

Blackwater Blade (Under 50) - Our Tuesday events will be here.

If you plan to play more in the under 50 on your own time you might want to make that your home, otherwise make thornblade your home as thats where most of our activities will be.

 TL;DR:  Thornblade is the important campaign for everyone to set as either their Home or Guest.

 

  • If you are a Vet Rank, I would recommend choosing Thornblade as your Home, then the Vet-only campaign as your guest, if you really want to bother.
  • For those of us under 50, we have no shot @ Emperor in a regular zone, but we actually have a decent chance in Blackwater, so I decided to set that as my Home.  Just in case.  ;)

Its really all about having the Home Campaign buffs for your character, which is going to be more variable now.  I'm not sure how the guild claimed keeps and guild stores work with Home and Guest, though.  It may not matter, but never know.

We will be trying to claim a home keep with Gaiscioch on the Under-50 campaign at all times so that players who are leveling up become familiar with our name. We will try to claim 2 keeps in Thornblade for each of our storefronts to draw attention from the high VR players.

If our intended "home" is supposed to be on Thornblade for the Vet crowd, why have I only seen one or two events scheduled since we got the new campaigns?  I've seen at least 6-8 events for non-Vets.  I feel, as a one-character player, I did all this work to get to VR12, and for what?  Now that there haven't been any regularly scheduled events (other than the Friday night event meant for those members overseas that BEGINS at 1am my time) I know of one other event during the morning/mid-afternoon. 

Just posting my general thoughts on this.  Maybe I've missed some planned events that I wasn't aware of, but it looks as if the guild is moving in the direction of dumping higher level characters and wanting fresh meat.  o_O

Ok seems to be the hydra has to many heads lol. Thorneblade is a 30 day open to anyone campaign.  Blackwater blade is for non vet only characters. Check the event list and there are many thorneblade events open to all levels. The easiest one to come out to is on Saturday night at 6est. We have lots of fun every weekend. Also kaytlin runs a lot of event during the week for all levels. Personally I would like to see unscheduled pick ups during the week. If your out in cyrodiill, pick up family members and post it as such. Always ask on guild chat for company and you will usually get it. That's my 3 cents worth anyway. Yes I get 3 because I have a wicked awesome beard....

Fog  runs two events every week: Tues = Blackwater (Pacific prime time) and Fri = Thornblade (Oceanic prime time).

Kaytlin runs 2 Thornblade and 1 Blackwater event every week.  (all are EU prime time, afaik)

All of the other AvA events (which are few and random) are always run in Thornblade, so I'm not sure where all of these Blackwater events are supposed to be, because I haven't seen them on the calendar.

TernieLaBiscuit, We MUST have a presence in the non-VR campaign if we have any hopes of growing. Last week in the duration of the event we gained 5 new family members. During our activities in the main campaign we gained 0. We have been gaining 0 from the main campaigns consistently. If we want to grow we have to have a presence with the new players who are not already committed to a guild. At this point as far as I know there are only 2 events per week that take place in Blackwater Blade, there are however 5 that take place in Thornblade.

Additionally let me remind you that Anyone over the rank of Lorgair can organize an event on the website and claim leadership for the event. This family is not dependant on elders running events. We give the power to each and every one of you to plan and host your own events. If there's no event to your liking plan one. I'm certain people will come out and support your endeavours.
