With so little information available about Riders of Icarus and Open Beta rapidly approaching I thought it would be helpful to create at least a basic guide for the new players to learn about how to open a guild and how it functions.
Things You Should Know:
Guilds Size begins at 40 Characters and increases by 10 every Guild Level
Guilds are Character based not Account Based.
Characters must be online and outside of an instance to receive an invite to a guild.
Creating a Guild
Go to Hakain's Crossing
In the North West of the city you will find the "Guild Master" in the "Guild Hall"
You will need to be Level 10 and possess 2 Gold to open a guild
Forming an Alliance
Alliances can consist of up to 3 Guilds
All Alliance Guilds must be Rank 3 or Higher.
How to Create an Alliance
Go to Hakain's Crossing
In the North West of the city you will find the "Alliance Master" in the "Guild Hall"
To increase your guild level you can Kill Monsters or Earn Player Levels. For each Guild Level you gain, your guild will grow by 10 character slots and unlock Guild Skills. Guilds progress by earning Guild EXP (GXP).
To Advance Your Guild Level
Kill Monsters - Gain 1 Point per monster above your level.
Gain Player Levels - Earn GXP for each player level earned.
Level 2 is worth 10 GXP
Level 3 is worth 20 GXP
Level 4 is worth 20 GXP
Level 5 is worth 25 GXP
Level 10 is worth 50 GXP
Level 14 is worth 70 GXP
Further investigation needed to map out full point values
Play with Guild Members - If you are grouped with other members of your guild, you will receive 1 point per guild member in your party for each kill of a monster above your level.
