The Stronghold 

  • Every guild has their own unique Stronghold instance.
  • Only Guild and Alliance members may enter.
  • Characters of any level can enter, but characters below Lv 70 are raised to Lv 70.
  • Each guild’s stronghold starts with a Lv 1 Guild Hall. Other structures can be built and upgraded over time by doing quests and donating to the Guild Coffer.

 


Guild Coffer

  • The guild coffer is located toward the back left of the Guild Hall (Castle).
  • Beside it are the guild bank, personal bank, and mailbox. 
  • The coffer is where you donate shards, vouchers, influence, and other items. 
  • All of these items are needed to rank up and obtain Guild Boons.
    • Guild Boons grant additional stats and item level.

Caution: You will see that you are able to donate campaign currencies.  Do not donate these unless you have finished the campaign. You need those currencies to finish the campaigns, and obtain the boons offered by each.
