Guilds have been functional in the game since the earliest stages of the game, and they've already become a pretty big part of the gameplay throughout the course of a character's development.
Now, with many years in the books and the gameplay become understood by the player, they won't be strangers to them at all, but there still might be some who would like more of an in-depth look into the guilds and their functions.
As player without a guild, it's going to be tough to live in a world full of competition, and joining a guild can help solve a lot of problems.
Being a part of a guild can bring you lots of benefits. The BP sharing system will help you gain extra Battle Power. But in order to get much more power than before, you'll have to do your best to help level up the Arsenals of the guild you join, but we'll talk about later on.
Setting Up Your Guild/ Joining a Guild
So you want to create your own guild, eh? Well, first you need to register your guild before you'll get the chance to know more about the guild, itself. Head down to Twin City (399,394) and talk to the Guild Director, then pay him the registration fee of 1,000,000 Silver to get your guild running!
When that's done, let's go straight into the concept of guild functions and how they work.
Guild Positions & Levels
Guilds are a group that cannot function properly without a leader and its members. This brings us to the second part of a guild, the Guild Level and Positions.
Guilds of different levels have different numbers of positions available, such as the Guild Leader, Deputy Leader, Agents, and so on. Have a look at the picture below, to see what positions are available.
Okay, now you can get the hang of the composition of a guild, but then what can those players at different positions do for the members?
Only Guild Leaders, Deputy Leaders, Managers, Honorary Managers, Donation Supervisors and Honorary Supervisors have the rights to recruit members to the guild. Each position receives a share of the benefits for being appointed to positions in the guild, such as Battle Power, which you can gain a certain percentage of by being a member.
Guild Donation System
Now that members are entitled to the sharing of Battle Power from the Guild, should they also have responsibilities to support the guild? Sure they should! So that's why there is a Donation system available, to allow the leader to effectively manage his guild.
There are 5 donation types: Silver, CPs, PK, Guidance, and the Arsenal.
As you can see, the above window shows two of the donation types. In order to contribute to the guild with PKs, Guidance and Arsenal donations, you will have to: 1. Kill the members from other guilds of a higher level than yours; 2. Help your guildmates level up; 3. Inscribe your equipment to your guild's Martial Arsenals.
