AV consists of 4 distinct paths, which are the Path of the Avatar, Path of the Dragon, Path of the Sojourner and Path of the Trades.
Encompassing all thing PvM/PvE, the path of the Avatar is AV's primary path. There are three ranks within the Path of the Avatar: Squire, Knight and Avatar. The AV Guild Leader is the official head of the Path of the Avatar.
Squires are probationary members of the Path of the Avatar.
They are assigned a Knight who acts as a mentor and judges when the squire is ready for promotion to the rank of Knight.
Knights are full members of the Path of the Avatar and are promoted upon recommendation of their mentoring knight and successful completion of an assigned Knight's Quest.
A recommendation for knighthood is presented to the Council by a squire's mentoring knight when
the mentoring knight feels the squire is ready,
the squire has successfully completed the Humilty Cloak Quest given by Gareth the Emissary of the RBC, and
the squire has obtained the level of Knight in at least 2 Virtues.
Once the recommendation for knighthood is accepted by the Council a Knight's Quest is created and given to the squire.
Upon successful completion of the quest a knighting ceremony is held, after which all of the Player's characters are eligible for the title of Knight.
Avatar is the highest rank in the Path of the Avatar and given only to those Knights who have gone above and beyond the call of duty for both AV and the Origin shard.
Promotions from Knight to Avatar are decided soley at the discretion of the Council, however nominations can be given to the council by any member of AV.
The Path of the Dragon is the PvP arm of AV and is lead by the Dragon. Due to a lack of interest it is currently inactive until such a time that someone has the desire and skills to fill the position of Dragon.
The Path of the Sojourner is for those players who want the friendship and community provided by being in a guild, but prefer the solo aspects of the game itself. The path consists of 2 ranks: Apprentice Sojourner and Sojourner. The path is lead by the Head Sojourner.
Apprentice Soujourners are probationary members of the Path of the Sojourner.
They are assigned a Sojourner, or Knight if no Sojourners are available, who acts as a mentor and judges when the squire is ready for promotion to the rank of Sojourner.
Sojourners are full members of the Path of the Sojourner and are promoted at the recommendation of their mentoring Sojourner, or Knight, and the discretion of the Head Sojourner. Once promoted all of the Player's characters are eligible for the title of Sojourner.
The Path of the Trades is for those players who are dedicated to all things crafting and resource gathering. The path of trades is charged with overseeing the AV vendor house in Luna, the guild warehouse and the guild armory.
The path consists of 3 ranks: Apprentice, Journeyman and Master of Trades. The path is lead by one or more Ministers of Trade.
