Guild House

Guild Houses are large buildings that are capable of accommodating many guild members at once. They only exist in villages that have achieved a certain size, and their owners are chosen through an auction unlike any other ordinary houses you can purchase using contribution points.


Guild House Auction

Guild House auctions will take place once every even numbered week of a month and during the following times. 

NA: Saturday 01:00 PM ~ Sunday 12:59 PM (PDT)

EU: Saturday 03:00 PM ~ Sunday 02:59 PM (UTC+1)

ASIA: Friday 06:00 PM ~ Saturday 05:59 PM (GMT+9)


Only guild masters can place bids for guild houses. They can do so using guild funds. A notification will appear once an auction begins, at which point guild masters will be able to begin placing bids through an NPC. Guild masters can only bid on a single guild house per auction. They can only place up to three bids per auction. Auction participants will not and you cannot be aware of the bid amounts submitted from other guilds, unless they make the highest bid. Whoever submits the highest bid will receive a system message that, “Your bid of …OOO Silver has been placed as the highest bid.” Once a guild wins an auction, the winning bid amount will be automatically deducted from a guild’s guild funds. Once the auction ends, a guild can begin using the guild house. If the bidding fails, the guild master can retrieve the silver used for bidding from the Guild Shop. Upon submitting a bid, the bid amount will be automatically deducted from a guild's guild funds. Once the auction ends, a guild can begin using the guild house if the bidding was successful. If the bidding failed, the guild master can retrieve the silver used for bidding from the Guild Shop.



If no one bids for the guild house, the auction will restart automatically.


Guild House Maintenance

Once a guild wins a guild house, guild house maintenance fee must be paid everyday at midnight to keep using its features. This fee is proportionate to the winning bid and will be automatically deducted from guild funds. If the guild is running low on guild funds, the guild house may become unavailable for use. Guild Masters or Officers can also pay the maintenance fee out of their pockets. Any guild member can deposit the upkeep cost and Guild Masters or Officers can make the payment via Deposit Funds feature.


You can also upgrade the guild house using guild points. Improved guild house allows members to craft more diverse items and expands the guild storage.


Guild House Features 

Guild Processing and Crafting

Materials for Guild Crafting can only be processed at the guild house. First, enter the guild house and interact with the door to open the guild storage. Then put the processing materials inside and press Guild Processing. You can make permits and materials for Guild Crafting through this process and obtain guild activity as well. You must undergo this procedure as Guild Crafting only uses materials made through it. Only guild masters have the authority to craft through Manage Crafting from the Guild Window. Crafted items will be sent to the guild storage.


Nurturing an Elephant

You can nurture the tamed baby elephant in the guild house (only available for guild houses in Valencia). However, the guild must have learned the guild skill “Monstrous Force” beforehand. Required materials can be purchased from the Guild Shop or be made through Guild Processing. Reach “Monstrous Force Lv. 2” and upgrade the Elephant Nursery to level 2 to craft gears for the elephant.


Crafting Mount Parts

If the guild has obtained the guild skill “Fully Prepared,” you are ready to craft items that recover stamina of the elephant.


Guild House Permits

All of your guild house information including its upgrade, stored items, and crafting progress will be saved even if you lose the permit to another guild in the next auction. However, you will not be able to use the guild house for guild crafting until your guild wins the permit for a guild house again.


Valencian Elephants

Valencian Elephants are a large mount used for node and conquest wars. It is highly effective in destroying barricades or wooden fences and can carry up to 3 riders.


How to Obtain an Elephant I: Quests

One way to obtain a Valencian Elephant is for the guild master to complete “[Guild] Gathering everyone’s strength.” If you are the guild master, you will be able to find it in Quest > Suggestions. This quest is followed by “[Guild] Gathering strength once again” and “[Guild] Our Guild’s Capability,” which you can get “[Guild] Registration: Valencia Elephant” from both. Each guild can therefore obtain a total of three elephants.

How to Obtain an Elephant II: Guild House

Another way to get a Valencia Elephant is to participate in the guild house auction and win one in Valencia. Then, learn the guild skill “Monstrous Force” to open an Elephant Nursery and begin raising an elephant.


To raise an elephant, you first need to capture* a “[Guild] Baby Elephant.” Try looking for a herd of elephants inhabiting the Valencia Desert. You can tame one in the same way you capture wild horses. The process can be easier if you take a “[Guild] Desert Peanut”. You can buy Desert Peanuts from the Guild Stable Keeper. Once you successfully capture a baby elephant, find the Guild Stable Keeper and register it.



Put the baby elephant in the guild storage and use the Elephant Registration from Guild Window > Guild Crafting to begin nurturing it. Please note that you must first register the baby elephant as a material before raising it.


Required materials for “[Guild] Valencia Elephant” are as follows:


Name Quantity
[Guild] Clearance Permit
[Guild] Baby Elephant
[Guild] Water for Elephant
[Guild] Elephant Food
[Guild] Elephant Cage Parts
[Guild] Timber for Fixing the Cage


All the materials except “[Guild] Clearance Permit” and “[Guild] Baby Elephant” can be purchased from the Guild Stable Keeper or be crafted at the guild house.


Tips on Guild Elephants

  • Valencian Elephants can have skills at a fixed rate when they are born just like other mounts. However, new skills cannot be learned as they are limited from levelling up.
  • Each of the Valencian Elephants can carry up to 3 riders. One at the front will drive the elephant, while the other two can throw spears to knockback the opponents. They are free from attacks while they are mounted.
  • When confronting Valencian Elephants during battles, it is effective to install the “[Guild] Elephant Trap” to hold it back from approaching and destroying structures. You can purchase it from the Guild Military Supply Manager.
  • Gears for the Valencian Elephants can be crafted at the guild house.
  • How to tame* a baby elephant: First, throw the capturing rope to a baby elephant and tie it up. Then, use directional buttons to approach it. Upon approaching the elephant, feed the “[Guild] Desert Peanut” until it is satisfied. You can purchase desert peanuts from the Guild Stable Keeper with guild funds. If the elephant lifts its legs during the whole taming process, calm it down by pressing the button as shown on the screen repeatedly. You will have successfully tamed the elephant if it does not kick the tamer and runs away.
