AIGHT GUYS HERE’S THE SCOOP. We are considering the move from Gilded Hollow (our current one) to Windswept Haven (the newest guild hall). We understand that there are mixed feelings and questions to be answered on the subject, so we are here to discuss the options and ramifications! IF WE DID NOT MOVE: - All of our decor placement would stay as is! - We would continue to have access to crafting materials for guild tenebrous weapons - Dyne would work on doing a ridiculous skimmer course in the water. (IE, we could plan more things to do with the space we have!) IF WE DID MOVE, HOW WOULD IT WORK? - Instead of guild missions, one Saturday after TT we would do a guild hall reclaiming. More details on this will be posted if this becomes relevent. - Jeffery and some of our friends would move with us, because of the work of some very dedicated people - However, all jumping puzzles would be taken out, and all current decor would be removed to inventory. As funny as the bug where all the decor moves with us in place is, we would prefer to redecorate. OKAY BUT I HAVEN’T SEEN OR HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT THE NEWEST GUILD HALL, CAN YOU COMPARE THEM FOR ME? Gilded Hollow (promo vid, wiki link) is one of the original guild halls. It is accessed from Auric Basin, and is located between Verdant Brink, Auric Basin and Dry Top. It looks like the Exalted kept wrapping the tall wreckage of this place in shiny, and has a lot of round rooms/spaces of varying size. We get tenebrous crystals from the ore extractor, which are used to craft guild weapons! It has a lot of hidden vertical spaces, actually, hence the JPS and routes to the top. If you need a guide around the guild hall, you can ask in guild chat if there’s someone free to show you around, or you can explore yourself, starting at the arena. Windswept Haven (promo vid, wiki link) is the newest guild hall. It is accessed to the north of Vabbi, right next to Zomoros’s lair. It is more open-plan then Gilded Hollow, and looks like slightly ruined Elonia. Here, we do not get any materials for dark/light guild weapons, but instead get obsidian or clovers on rare harvests from the guild nodes. Everything is packed more tightly together in the new guild hall, and I would estimate that there is actually less useable space for decorating small areas? But given that the current guild halls are huge spaces, it comes down to a matter of taste. We will be losing some of the cool hidden places we have now if we switch. The positive tradeoff is that it comes with a built in mount stable for anyone wanting to try all the new mounts and a small mount JP, as well some space for more architectural decor vs styled rooms. OKAY, BUT CAN I SEE THE NEWEST GUILD HALL? Here’s a preview of the ruined, pre-claiming GH. We would be getting a upgraded one immediately, because of our guild rank. IN ADDITION—We have two tours planned. One will be on Saturday, October 7th after TT (with Sylent), one will be Monday after reset’s Teq (with Skorra). There are additionally, three officers (Dyne, Sylent and Skorra) who may be able to help you see the new guild hall if you ask them nicely at some other time. You will need Path of Fire and access to Vabbi either by TP to friend or by getting there by some other means. People who have just HoT, the core game, or F2P will be able to access to the claimed guild hall, but will not be able to access any tours or the claim, sadly. After the tours happen, we will be having a VOTE to determine what we’re doing. The vote will come sometime next week and be held open for one week. In the meantime, we will leave this thread open to gentle discourse on the pros and cons of both guild halls. People should feel free as well as provide more descriptions, videos, pictures or insight into the new guild halls!
