Guide to Alliances (Guilds) - Everything you need to know [Updated June 26th]

  • This guide has been updated with information and images from the CBT2 client. Please note that UI and localisation are subject to change before the launch of the game in NA/EU.


    Updated this on June 26th to include the proper level (level 15) needed to make the Alliance, in addition to the amount of members the Alliance has upon creation.

    Basic Introduction:

    Players can choose to join an Alliance (Swords of Legends Online’s Guild system) they are interested in and while contributing to the alliance they can also enjoy special benefits. The Alliance interface can be opened via the social interface by pressing H.


    Things to note:

    • Alliances are per character, not per account.
    • It costs 10 Gold to make an alliance, and you must be Beginner Level 15.
    • Your Alliance can only have 50 members when you create it, you can expand the amount later on (more details below).
    • Some content is unavailable at launch, this is listed separately.
    • You can disband your Alliance by pressing the End button in the bottom left hand corner. You must of reached 10 members before you can do this.

    Creating and Joining an Alliance:

    Creation Conditions:

    Reach Beginner Level 10 then head to Cloudrise and talk to Zeng An (Alliance Steward) and spend 10 gold coins to create an alliance.


    Automatic Disbanding Conditions:

    When the number of members in the alliance is less than 10, the alliance will enter a 15-day cooldown to disband. If there are not 10 or more members during this period, the alliance will be disbanded, if your alliance manages to get 10 members or above during this period the disbandment will be suspended and your alliance can continue operating as normal.


    Things to note:

    • Once the alliance is disbanded, all items in the alliance’s stash will be lost.
    • After a rank is created, the rank cannot be deleted, and can only be deleted after the Leader of the alliance is transferred.


    Joining an Alliance:

    You can join a guild after you reach beginner level 10. You can do this by filtering the alliances to join by playing preference, or you can search for the alliance you want to join by name. You can change the filter to search for alliances that suit you in the top left corner of the Recommended Alliance interface.

    Newcomers who want to experience PVP gameplay in depth are better off joining a PVP-focused alliance.


    jUaSTIo.png

    Alliance Events:

    Alliance Events are activities that you need to join an alliance to experience. part of the gameplay activation requires members who have permissions to activate alliance events so they can open the activity for the members to participate.


    Participating in events can get a large number of alliance resources and also personal resources. It is recommended that alliances participate in events weekly to gain the most benefits for their members and their alliance.


    Information on the various guild activities will be provided as separate guides.

    Alliance Achievements:

  • Kitah , very nice.
    It seems to me that there are more PvP activities related to being a guild.
    Are there enough benefits to Raiding that come from a formal guild?
    Can a guild get by as a mostly PvE guild and build up to any PvE benefits with just a bare minimum of PvP?
    Is the cost of adding a guild to the Hostile list prohibitive enough that no one bothers to do it to the smaller fish in the pond?

  • Thank you for this detailed guide!

    I have a question tho, is it actually "Characters" or "Accounts" that join a Guild? aka. is it possible that me and my friends each create multiple characters and join with them until we are 10 people in the guild?

    Hey there,


    Yes there are definitely more PVP activities related to being in a guild compared to PVE, but that doesn't mean a guild cannot primarily focus on PVE - it's even an option in the listing for how you want to flag your guild in the guild menu when other players are looking for guilds to join.


    You level up a guild by completing guild missions and guild activities, your guild can focus on the PVE content for these. Guild Orders also allow your guild to activate talents and guild bonuses. I sadly was unable to update my thread in time but Guild Talents and Guild Bonuses are both obtained by completing Guild Orders.


    I'm still investigating all types of Guild Orders at the moment, but these can actually be earnt via PVE and PVP content so if your guild wants to avoid PVP you can.


    It is to be noted however that the resources (Breath of Ganoderma, Essence of Water, Ningyun's Essence and Essence of Tibetan Wind)

    can only be earnt via PVP content, but from all of the information I can find online and by researching myself I have come to the conclusion these are not needed to progress a guild, since progression is tied to Guild Orders and the Guild Bonuses/Talents.

    Thank you for this detailed guide!

    I have a question tho, is it actually "Characters" or "Accounts" that join a Guild? aka. is it possible that me and my friends each create multiple characters and join with them until we are 10 people in the guild?

    I do not know this for certain at the moment as I only have one character, I will look into it and respond back to you once I have an answer.


    Thank you all for the kind words!

    You join the guild with a character, I had all of my characters (from the same account) in one guild (so we reached 10 members to not be deleted huorong_clap)

  • If we have already chosen our faction, for example the red faction, can we join a blue faction guild?

    If I understand correctly only the "neutral" one can get recruited by all faction (which is I believe gold-ish)


    Quote

    Alliance of Qin Ling: You can recruit players from Qin Ling, Profound Sect and God One Heaven factions.

    Alliance of God Yitian: You can recruit players from Qin Ling and God Yitian factions.

    Alliance of Xuanjiao: You can recruit players from Qin Ling and Xuanjiao factions.

    aka
    Qin Ling can join: Qin Ling, Yitian and Xuanjiao
    Yitian can only join: Qin Ling and Yitian

    Xuanjiao can only join: Qin Ling and Xuanjiao

  • Does the guild faction matter outside of recruiting? IE, is there a benefit for choosing Yitian over Qin Ling?

    Factions matter for PVP based content as part of the faction system later on (won't arrive at launch). It is also important for recruitment as well. Qin League will be the default faction that alliances (guilds) are placed into at launch.
