Escrow Deposit Progress

We’re on the road to collecting enough status in our guild hall escrow account to buy two new depot amenities: the Collection depot and the Lore & Legend depot!

Deposits can be made at the door to our guild hall:
Maj’Dul server > South Qeynos > Halasian Empire

Simply right-click on the front door from within the guild hall, click “Access,” and then select the “Deposit” tab. Use the button at the bottom of the window to deposit your desired status donation amount.

Thanks for helping us reach our goal of 20 10 million status!!


EDIT (5 Feb 2016): Some amenity prices have been reduced! The depots we’re aiming for are now 5 million apiece to purchase.

Hanging in there…
Categories: State of the Guild · Tags: ,

We’ve been doing a good job at keeping up with our guild hall upkeep costs since our number of active members has decreased. Sometimes it comes right down to the wire, but we’re able to scrape by from week to week with no real trouble — it’s a testament to our members’ dedication and generosity.

That being said, there are things we can do to keep things from cutting too close to the bone. One of these is to re-evaluate our various guild hall amenities, since they make up the bulk of our weekly rent. (You can see all of our amenities listed in the Guild Hall Guide.)

I’ve made an executive decision to retire our Wizard Portal Hireling. He’s been made redundant by technology — isn’t that always the way? — and will be replaced with the Small Ulteran Spire. Both amenities serve the same purpose, but the Spire costs half as much as the NPC (in both purchase and upkeep).

We may need to make additional adjustments in the future, so please feel free to comment here or on the forums about which amenities you won’t miss and which ones you can’t live without.

In other news, there have been amenities added to the game with Sentinel’s Fate and Destiny of Velious that you may not be familiar with; check them out! We may decide to take advantage of these some time in the future, but for now, Mushroom is still doing a fine job. ;)

Guild Hall page updates
Categories: Site Updates · Tags: , ,

I’ve just finished updating our Guild Hall Guide! It includes new maps and icons, and it’s new code means it will be easier to update as the guild levels and buys more amenities.

There will be more updates to the guide coming soon; I plan on creating a page with the various methods members can use to reach the guild hall, which will feature character names and house addresses that will make it easy to find a Magic Door.

I’ve just finished a page entitled “How Can I Contribute?” It outlines some of the ways in which members can help the guild. Check it out, and let me know if you have anything to add!

How Can I Contribute?

Categories: Game Updates, Guild Event · Tags: ,

GU56 will bring New Halas to the live servers, but it also has lots of other changes in store. The way we travel across Norrath will be changing, and as a result some guild hall amenities will be updated with new locations and appearances! You can read more about the upcoming modifications here.

Long story short, the Magic Carpet to the Sinking Sands and the Mariner’s Bell: Shattered Lands that we already have in the guild hall will be redundant — they will both take us to all the same locations. This means that we can remove one of those amenities in order to free up a slot for something new!

This is the perfect opportunity for us to try to raise enough status to purchase the Guild Strategist that we’ve been eyeballing for the last year. We’ll have the amenity slot opened up soon, and we have more than enough coin to buy it. Our only obstacle at this point is to raise the amount of status needed: 20 million. (ouch!)

As of this post, our status drive is GO! We need at least 20 million status in the guild hall escrow by the time that GU56 goes live. Keep in mind that we still have to pay our weekly upkeep between now and then, and any deposited status beyond what we need to purchase the Strategist will be applied to future upkeep and amenity costs.

Not sure how to participate? It’s easy! Just complete adventure or tradeskill writs (aka “City Tasks”) or Heritage quests or sell status loot to our Commodities Exporter inside the guild hall in order to gain personal status points. To donate status to the guild, right-click on the guild hall door or type /house while inside the hall to bring up the housing window. Click the “Deposit” tab, then donate as much or as little status as you want. Remember that status deposited into the guild hall escrow account is non-refundable, but escrow coin and status is never lost, even if we move to another guild hall.

Good luck to everyone, and let’s get those points rolling in!!

Ding 64: New Amenity!
Categories: Achievements, Guild Event · Tags: , , ,

The winner of the level 64 guild hall amenity poll has been purchased! You can find Aoife Bristlethorn, the guild hunter hireling, downstairs next to her fellow harvesters. She will bring back fish, pelts, and meats (if meats are available from dens in the tier you specify) for your crafting enjoyment!

With our level 64 goal reached, it’s time to look ahead to our level 66 guild hall amenity; you can find a new poll to the right. :)

Categories: Guild Event · Tags: , ,

We’re going to need a tie-breaker on our level 64 amenity poll to the right! If you haven’t voted already, please do so. :)

For a great run-down of the various available amenities and what they do, check out EQ2i’s Guild Hall Amenities article.

Ding 62, and a new amenity!
Categories: Achievements, Guild Event · Tags: ,

We hit level 62 last night and unlocked a new amenity for the hall! You can find Sorcha Bluebones downstairs, who will be more than happy to bind your completed collections for you!

Our next milestone is level 64, which will unlock one more amenity slot. Be sure to cast your vote in the poll to the right and choose the amenity you’d like to see purchased next!

Push to 60: Correction & DING!

I inadvertently left two of our newest members out of the tally I posted yesterday. The original post has been corrected to reflect the proper standings!

In the overall increase category, Pratt comes in at #30 with 639 points earned, and Phlebas comes in at #32 with 119 points earned. In the percentage increase category, Pratt comes in at #4 with a 63,900.00% increase, and Phlebas comes in at #6 with a 11,900.00% increase.

In other news, we’ve just dinged level 59! Level 60 is within our sights… Don’t forget to vote for your 3 amenity choices in the poll to the right; when we hit 60, the top 3 amenities will be purchased for the entire guild to use!

Well done, everyone!
