How To Join

Joining #CwExperts is simple, the steps you are required to follow are below. Before you attempt to join, please make sure you meet the requirements listed below, and take the time to read the rules on our rules page here: Alternatively, you may watch the Getting Started video for #CwExperts below, or on our YouTube here:

PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to leave #CwExperts at any time, whether it’s because you finished your goals or you plan to take a lengthy break, please notify us by posting in the #retirement Discord channel. If you leave our Discord server without prior notice you will be penalized if you ever wish to rejoin. You can find more information on parting ways with #CwExperts and changing your roles on our Discord server on our retirement page here:


There are two main requirements you must meet before joining #CwExperts. These are required not only for when you join, but for the duration of your time spent with #CwExperts.

1. Alternative account with level 90+ combat

You must have an alternative account with at least level 90 combat, preferably 100-110. This is fairly simple to achieve if you’re starting from scratch, just ask other members if you’re not sure what the current best way to level up is. This account will always be on the losing team, so don’t expect to gain tickets on it as well. You may instead pay someone else to use an alternative account for you, however they also must join #CwExperts, and the deal must be worked out privately.

2. Saved Castle Wars preset

You must have a preset saved with gear from one of the recommended setups shown below. If you are not able to match any of the setups, or are a lower combat level, ask a staff member if an exception can be made for you.
