Guild Hall Lowdown

Hi Guildies,

Over the past few months, since we have beenworking with the new CoS Guild Hall, some have asked how the upkeep of the place works, and I thought I'd send a little mail on that subject.

There are actually three "tiers" of Guild Halls available in Norrath, and since our guild is relatively small, we have purchased a Tier One Guild Hall, located across from the giant sword statue (The Claymore) in North Qeynos. If you are of good alignment, you will have no trouble entering the city and zoning in. However, if you are of evil alignment, you will need to use the dock bells from Commonlands -> Nektulos Forest --> Antonica --> and Willow Wood , then sneak into NQ from the The Down Below (sewers).

Once you surface in NQ, you need to be super careful because both Epic and Heroic city guards may be roaming about, and they do see through invisibility. The good news is that once you come up from The Down Below, it's a very short run to the long building that sits at a diagonal on your map.

The Guild Hall is a community work in progress and has been made possible by some *extremely* giving people (THANK YOU)!! To see the volunteers, and to make donations yourself, once inside the Hall, RIGHT CLICK on the FRONT DOOR and choose ACCESS. Then go to the DEPOSIT tab, and you will find that you can make as many donations in either coin or personal status that you'd like. You can also click the History tab to see what these generous guild members have contributed over the course of the ownership of the Hall. The AMENITIES tab will show items that are still up for sale, along with their costs in coin and status.

Please note that the status listed there is Personal Status and does not reflect, depend on, or pull from your Guild Status balance. Furthermore, if you were promoted to new ranks under the new Guild Status system, giving to the Guild Hall will not affect your new rank and in fact, may help as we develop the promotional system. Writs, status items, and conventional methods do not automatically give to the Guild Hall's upkeep; this is a voluntary measure entirely!

The Guild Hall depends on a large amout of coin and status that is paid every 14 days, and that bank is called the "Escrow" account. Click the GENERAL tab to see Escrow. As long as there is money / status in that account to feed Upkeep, everyone has a Guild Hall. If not, once the Upkeep is paid, we can re-enter the Hall. So far, there have been no issues with this, as everyone's been amazing to keep it going, and thank you again. Please feel free to post any questions about the GH here or ask in-game on the chat.
