Guilds are player-formed organizations composed of players that gain certain in-game features, such as special guild chat channels and shared bank storage. Guilds form for a variety of reasons. Casual guilds are usually formed to simply enhance the social nature of the game and perhaps to offer help to players in need, while other guilds may form to focus on a particular type of content, such as Skirmishes, Dungeon Delves, or player-vs-player. Roleplaying guilds form to bring players together who enjoy roleplaying their characters. At the moment, the maximal number of members in a guild is set to 45.
List of active guilds
Starting a guild
In Protector's Enclave, go to the Guild Registry on your map and talk to the Guild Registrar. In order to start a guild in Neverwinter, you need a full party of players not already in a guild that are on the same map. Any member of the party can talk to the guild contact and start the guild with all party members. The player who spoke to the contract will be given the maximum guild rank, and the others with be given the lowest rank. Checklist for starting a guild:
- Full Party – 5 players of level 15 or more
- All Members of the Party are on the same instance of Protector's Enclave
- All Members of the Party are above level 15, or have founder status, or have transferred Zen into the game (Zen bought from the AD exchange with Diamonds do not count towards this)
Guild panel window
The guild panel window features many tabs:
The news tab has two logs. The first one presents the activity log, it registers the guild events (creation, join, promotion etc). The last one summarise the log of the guild vault.
The events tab enables allowed members to create and edit events.
The roster tab gives the full list of guild members, their rank, class, level, location (if online), status and eventual comments.
The members with permissions can set comments, change ranks, kick members, invite members or leave the guild.
Here you can customize your guild's name, message of the day, description, recruiting message, web site, minimum level and search tags.
The search tags are particularly important because players can search for guilds based on the tags you choose.
This panel lets you set all the permissions.
Guild bank window
The window of the guild bank (in Protector's Enclave next to the Guild Registry) offers several features.
A guild bank can contain up to 8 depots; each depot contains 48 item slots. Depot 1 can also be used to share gold.
