Hello everyone, i am homefry.
Recently on Guild Wars many of my friends have asked how to create and maintain a good guild.
I always reply " Guys i'm no guru, but starting out with my guild i think that there are a few things that you Should do "
Where to go
To Create a guild, it will cost you 100 gold coins. Heres a list of a few places i know of where to go:
Kamadan, Jewel Of Istan
Thats just a few, i will try to remember more as i go on.
When you create a guild you have a 2 choices, the name and the tag. The name of the guild shows up on your guild list at the top.
The tag is when you see someones name such as Teucer The Archer [LaZy] You may capitalize any letter in the tag but it must only be 4 letters. The name can be anything, i could be something humorous like The Lazy Couch Potatoes or i could be something more tough like The Crusaders Of Guild Wars.
Now you can talk on guild chat.
A cape is your guilds personal logo, designed only by you, your officers Can't change this. This does cost 2000 gold coins.
The cape of your guild can be anything that you are able to select.
This Picture is a screen-shot of the " Guild Emblemer " And just some of the various things you can do to your guild cape.
And Also a picture of my guys guild cape.
You Have Choices to take off the cape such as:
Hide in Towns and Outposts
Hide in Combat Areas
A Guild Hall
Your guild hall is a personal place your guild can meet, chat, trade, buy Npc's guild battles and MORE!
Here is a picture of the guild halls the " Guild hall guy " will take you to.
To purchase a guild hall you must by a celestial sigil in the guild hall you go to, although the prices may vary.
You will need a faction to join an alliance, everyone in the alliance has the same faction as you, either Luxon or Kurzick, To get these you must own the game Factions.
A group of guild's banded together to fight evil, this is where all players can talk and chat on that are in your guild and/or the alliance guilds. Once you have the hall, the cape, and well of course to guild this is the next step.
(note) the alliance i'm in just worked on cleaning out unwanted guilds.
Roster, Status, And Guest
When Clicking " G " to enter your guilds little screen these thumbnails (not including alliance) have reasons.
Roster The roster is everyone who's in your guild, and as a guild leader you can promote, demote, designate, and kick people.
Promoting: To raise up to another rank. Example: Member to officer.
Demoting: To lower in rank. Example: Officer to member.
Designating: to assign as guild leader. Example: Member/officer to leader
Kicking: To give someone the " Boot " out of your guild.
Status To see who's quit, joined, and been promoted in the guild and alliance. Also for spreading a message so everytime a guild member logs on they get the news.
You and officers can edit this.
Guest If your a guest into someones guild, which allows you to go into their guild hall.
Start out by getting some trustworthy friends to promote to officers, if you notice 2 of the officers in my picture are close friends of mine.
Then if they're new, just talk them over the basic rules.
When advertising don't write something like this:
guild reqruiting mems pm me.
Whats wrong? Recruiting is spelled wrong, nothing is capatilized, members and " pm " me are both abreviated and it tells nothing about your guild.
Write something like this:
[LaZy] Recruiting active, loyal members. We have Cape, Guild Hall, 3 Guild Alliance, 11 Members, and We Are Luxon. Please Message if intersted.
Now it gives a breif overview of your guild, tells a bit about it, tells the tag, capatilized items, spelled right and more.
As menchoned earlier you need a Luxon or Kurzik faction to enter a guild alliance and gain faction.
You must make it to either Calvon (Luxon) or House Zu Heltzer (Kurzick) to obtain a Luxon or Kurzik faction.
You need 5000 faction for either to become that faction. Gain this faction during quests and missions their.
Warning: if you become luxon then you cannot talk to kurzick npc's and same if you were kurzick you cannot talk to luxon npc's
Summing It Up
Well thats about it. My guild isn't the most succesfull but im trying but just some words of wisdom.
" Never Give Up "
Note that making a guild dosent cost to much, just some time and friends.
I hope this helped you,
