Now that you've formed a guild of epic knights, the moment has come to face off against rival guilds in battle! Participation is open to all active knights in a guild when the 3-day Guild War event begins.
While the event is active, many guild actions are frozen. This includes guild recruitment and enlistment, as well as promotion, demotion, and removal of existing guild members, etc.
Your Guild War armor will be the same armor that is equipped for the Tournament Arena.
Battles between guilds must be initiated and can be done so by tapping the "Declare War" button. Once an opposing guild is found, a Guild Battle will officially begin and last 60 minutes.
Both guilds in a Guild Battle will earn War Points based on their performance. The winning guild earns a War Points bonus, and all earned War Points are applied directly to your guild's ranking. Collect the most War Points by the end of the Guild War to earn massive rewards for your entire guild!
War Points are earned for every knight that you defeat during a Guild Battle. Additionally, you will earn bonus War Points for winning each fight. Don't be afraid to fight difficult opponents, because every knight you defeat, even if you lose, counts towards your guild's total War Points. Fight hard and fight often, because winning a Guild Battle also provides your guild a special War Point bonus!
During a Guild Battle, each guild member can earn War Points by defeating rival knights, and attacking the opposing guild's Guardian and Castle Gate. You can even earn additional points for defeating guild leaders and tougher opponents!
Guild Battles are fought similarly to Arena and Adventure battles, but use War Energy to initiate the fight. The armor you equip for the Arena are also used for Guild Wars. Similar to Arena battles, Guild Wars allow for 2 types of attacks:
Costs a normal amount of War Energy with no bonuses to ATK and DEF.
- Power Attack
Costs a full bar of War Energy (4) with a huge ATK and DEF bonus.
War Energy replenishes at a rate of 1 per 25 minutes and can also be refilled by tapping the War Energy bar at the top left of the Guild War menu.
Battle Frenzy is a bonus effect that increases the amount of War Points gained for a period of time. Battle Frenzy may be triggered automatically during a single Guild Battle when the Battle gets close.
All opposing guild members start “protected” by their Guild Sentinel. This means that all other members are unavailable to fight until the Guild Sentinel is defeated, or until the Guild Sentinel has been attacked enough times. Your guild’s members can still attack the opposing Guild Guardian or Castle Gate if the Guild Sentinel is protecting other members.
Guild Sentinels start with a 50% DEF boost while protecting their guild’s members. The bonus decreases as members lose to the Guild Sentinel, and disappears completely if the Guild Sentinel is defeated or attacked enough times.
Guild Guardians act as an extra layer of defense! While a Guardian is alive, the opposing guild earns less War Points. Higher level Guardians better protect your guild, with higher health, ATK and DEF, AND greater War Point protection.
Attacking a Guild Guardian yields War Points even if you don't defeat it.
Rewards for Defeating a Guild Guardian:
When an opposing guild's Guardian is defeated, the member of your guild who dealt the most damage to the Guardian will earn additional rewards!
The higher level the Guardian is, the better your rewards will be, so make sure to give powerful Guardians your best shot! Rewards may not show up immediately, but will be awarded to the victor soon after the Guardian is defeated.
If members are having a hard time defeating rival knights, they can always attack the opposing guild's Castle Gate. It is always available to attack, but doesn't give out as many points as winning against rival knights.
End of Guild War Events:
About 60 minutes before the 3-day Guild War event ends, guilds will not be permitted to Declare War.
Accumulated War Points, earned from both wins and losses in Guild Battles, will determine your Guild's ranking in the Guild War Event. Fight hard for better rewards, because all members of your guild get all of the rewards shown!
Guild War Rewards:
The available rewards for a Guild War can be viewed from the "Rewards" tab of the Guild War menu. Only guild members who fought in the Guild War will earn the rewards shown for their guild's final reward tier. Each guild member must log in to the game during the Guild War's redemption period in order to claim their rewards. Make sure and work as a team, because competition will be fierce to get the highest and most powerful rewards for each Guild War!
Guild War Leaderboard:
Each Guild War has its own leaderboard, which track your guild's War Points and ultimately determine your guild's final reward at the end of the event. Check back often by tapping the "Leaderboard" tab of the Guild War menu.
