Recruit Status

A Recruit is a member of a Faction or Company that has been accepted within the last 72 hours. Their access and permissions within said faction or company are severely limited in this duration.


As a recruit, you will be placed under several restrictions for three days until you are a full member or employee.[1]


  • You will not have access to faction special branches, such as Toleration.
  • You will not be able to participate in any Wars, including Chains.

Note: once your recruit status ends and you become a full member, you can participate in ongoing wars and chains!

  • You cannot be assigned a position, and thus cannot be given permissions.

Note: this includes Leader, meaning you cannot trade a faction during Recruit status.

  • You cannot cause respect damage in a Raid, however you can receive damage from the opposing faction.
  • You cannot contribute towards faction challenges.


  • You cannot use any job specials.
  • You cannot be trained.
