The Guild Bank is meant to allow members to share items and to provide a storage space for items intended for use as prizes, events and other guild business. As space is limited even when maximum “tabs” are used, we sell items from the bank on a regular basis to keep bank space open. Credits received in this manner are then deposited in the guild funds.
Historically throughout MMO’s there have been issues with people joining a guild, removing several items from the guild bank and then leaving the guild. Alternatively, people have taken items of value and then sold them on the GTN (Galactic Trade Network) while remaining in the guild. Finally, some people just take more than a fair share. Due to these concerns we have limited how many items may be taken out at a time. We also monitor the withdrawals of high value items.
We also believe in reciprocation. If you take something please make a deposit of some sort. For valuable items we like to see at least half the value of the item cost on the GTN donated. For items worth less than 25,000 credits please donate whatever you can. Just be fair. If you regularly give items and funds to the guild, please don’t “sweat the small stuff” – this is about fairness, not about being a “Company Store.”
We currently have three tabs accessible by non-admiralty:
Leveling Items – this is the place for experience boost items, items of little value or that we have multiples of. This tab is basically a “please take and give what you can” area.
Crafting Items - A place for crafting materials. Please do not deposit items other than crafting materials, crafting missions and schematics in this area. Please do not use for leveling if there are less than two stacks of the same material. Primary use should be for creating items of other guild members or for the creation of conquest items when we are participating in conquest. If you make an item for a guild mate using these materials ask them to make the donation to the guild bank rather than reciprocating yourself!
Vanity Items - This is a tab for armor set pieces and crates, weapons, and currently also being used for vehicles. If you know an item has a value over 25,000 credits, please deposit it here regardless of what it is. An officer will review the item and decide where it goes. When taking items from this area please be fair in what you take and what you deposit.
Deposit Area - This area is for all item deposits for the bank. If you wish to donate to the guild then put the item in here. An Admiral will move these items to the appropriate tab for people to withdraw.
If you cannot withdraw from an area due to rank, ask a member of the admiralty for assistance.
The Vault – This area is not viewable or accessible by anyone lower than the rank of Rear Admiral. Most of what is here is reserved for sale, prizes or similar uses.
