Basic information about applying to Solitude:
• We are open to all exceptional applications.
• If you can prove to us that you deserve a spot in one of our hardcore raid teams, we will definitely consider and make a spot for you - even if current spots are already taken. There is always a chance.
• All spots for hardcore progression groups are earned during farming period based on performance, availability and attitude. This means that a trial can easily replace a FC veteran if that trial performs better.
• Package deals: if you are accepting as a group, you can submit one application but it should contain information about all members.
• Please make effort in your application. Your application is a first impression of you to us!
• If we are satisfied with your application, we will contact you via application form and trial you before we make our final decision. The trial can take up to 1-4 weeks.
During progression or before major patches, our trial period will be cut short to 1 week.
• If you are from another server and accepted for a trial, the trial can be done on Raid Finder, but we will not accept your application until you transfer over.
• There may be a chance that we request to speak to you on our Discord if we would like to ask more questions about your application.

Backstory on Solitude:
Solitude was created by Boss and Risa back at the start of 1.0. It was originally made as an Swedish social linkshell that blossomed into a small EU "event" linkshell doing planned Leve and Darkhold events. We spammed Aurum Vale and Cutter's Cry runs for those rare Darklight bodies. We grinded Hamlet seals for all of our members. We completed the relic quest for our members multiple times. Transitioning to 2.0, we recruited many great members and continue to be a stable, successful Free Company. We try our absolute best to keep our atmosphere fair and pleasant at all times. Solitude has been around for 6 years now!

Solitude's Timeline:
• October 2010: Our guild was formed in Final Fantasy XIV: 1.0 as an "linkshell" on the Lindblum server.
• Patch 1.20: Our server merged with Saronia and became Sargatanas.
We cleared all available content including Ifrit Extreme and Nael Deus Darnus.
• Pre-2.0: We decided to make the move to Ragnarok in hopes of one day getting a proper EU data center.
