AIE has a large Mumble server for the use of our community members. If you are new to Mumble, it is an Open Source voice chat system that allows you to talk and hear guildmates while running instances, raids, or just general game playing and chatting. You really should have a headset and microphone, since using standard computer speakers and built-in mics can cause a lot of extra noise or echo for others.
Logging into AIE Mumble
Of course, now you will want to log into the AIE Mumble server.
Host: mumble.aie-guild.net Port: 64738 (default)
Use your UMAMI username and password to log into Mumble.
If you are a recruit who has not gone through the UMAMI process, use the access token provided by your game officers (usually in the MOTD).
Do not share your login information with others, as you will not only be responsible for their actions, you maybe subject to disciplinary actions for them!
Anyone with legitimate access to it will be able to login by using their own UMAMI login details.
AIE Mumble Chat Rooms
Now you are logged in, you will see a lot of "rooms" or "channels". These are broken down into areas based on the purpose of the channel. Note: the Boiler Room, Game Rooms, and Lounges, and Grand Hall are "open channels", and the AIE family-friendly rule applies to all of them. The quest and raid channels are marked "DND", which means you should not just "pop in" to one of these channels. The conversation in these channels may be more adult, depending on the consensus of everyone in the channel.
These need to be updated
- Boiler Room
- This is an open room where AIE officers will often hang out to help with any guild questions or issues you may have.
- Game Rooms
- This is where to go if you are playing a certain game, and just want to chat with others in the same game.
- These are general purpose open channels for chatting while playing, doing homework or whatever. Drop-ins are welcome.
- The Grand Hall
- This is where AIE holds it's town hall meetings. By default you are muted when entering the Grand Hall. This channel is recorded during meetings.
- Quest Channels
- These are "do not disturb" channels intended for small groups--for questing or what have you.
- Raid Channels
- These channels are basically the same as the quest channels, except for larger groups--pretty much intended for raiding.
Other ad hoc channels are made from time to time--for example during Craft_Faire.
Mumble is available for all major Operating Systems, including Windows, Macintosh, and Linux.
