Lieges are important for gaining influence. When you join an allegiance, your liege lord will rally your armies to certain locations to unite them and with this added power, take seats of power. Without a liege lord, this would be practically impossible.
They are also needed for protection. Inside an allegiance, your allies can reinforce you if your enemies try to destroy your homestead. Without them, one player cannot survive very long.
Choose carefully who you want to join. Large groups such as LGION, DEVON and LIGHT are impressive, but personal advancement will be almost impossible. Look for smaller, on the rise groups such as TAR and REGIS, who might be more likely to reward you with a seat of power.
Listen to the chat at length to see who is worth following, and then click on their name. They may not have open bannermen slots, so go to their bannermen and find one who has slots of his own open. Join as one of their bannermen and then see what they are saying in their allegiance chat. That is the best way to decide whether you want to stay in a group.
