A guild is a collection of allied players who work cooperatively to enjoy adventures, fight mammoth monsters, and accomplish fantastic feats all throughout the Warhammer Online world. Guilds also act as a social hub, allowing you to build a network of friends and allies as you play through the game. Additionally, guilds are an ever-growing, ever-changing part of Warhammer Online.
As you and your guildmates fight your way through the world, facing perilous danger and achieving glory on the battlefield, your guild earns access to new and exciting features. This is known as the Living Guild because—just like individual players—guilds can gain Experience and Rank-up through the game.
Attaining new guild Ranks unlocks guild advancement rewards such as customizable guild heraldry, guild cloaks, guild standards, guild Tactics, and so much more.
When you create a new character, you will have access to a special guild for your Realm that is designed to aid new players in WAR. Once you reach Chapter 2 in any of the starting areas, you will automatically be placed in the New Player Guild if you are unguilded. The guild is called The Forces of Order or The Forces of Destruction, depending on what Realm you belong to. The New Player Guild provides a guild environment for all new players, helps facilitate groups, and offers new players a place to learn the game together. You may stay in the New Player Guild until you reach Rank 20.
