Decide to create your own or join an existing alliance? Here you can find all you need to know about being part of an alliance!Guide author: kitah
Players can choose to join an Alliance (Swords of Legends Online’s Guild system) they are interested in and while contributing to the alliance they can also enjoy special benefits. The Alliance interface can be opened via the social interface by pressing H.
- Alliances are per character, not per account.
- It costs 10 Gold to make an alliance, and you must be Beginner Level 15.
- Your Alliance can only have 50 members when you create it, you can expand the amount later on (more details below).
- Some content is unavailable at launch, this is listed separately.
- You can disband your Alliance by pressing the End button in the bottom left hand corner. You must of reached 10 members before you can do this.
Reach Beginner Level 10 then head to Cloudrise and talk to Zeng An (Alliance Steward) and spend 10 gold coins to create an alliance.
You can join a guild after you reach beginner level 10. You can do this by filtering the alliances to join by playing preference, or you can search for the alliance you want to join by name. You can change the filter to search for alliances that suit you in the top left corner of the Recommended Alliance interface.
When the number of members in the alliance is less than 10, the alliance will enter a 15-day cooldown to disband. If there are not 10 or more members during this period, the alliance will be disbanded, if your alliance manages to get 10 members or above during this period the disbandment will be suspended and your alliance can continue operating as normal.
Things to note:
- Once the alliance is disbanded, all items in the alliance’s stash will be lost.
- After a rank is created, the rank cannot be deleted, and can only be deleted after the Leader of the alliance is transferred.
Alliances of different factions can recruit players from different factions. At launch, Alliances will be automatically in the Qin League faction.
After a future update, the alliance leader can talk to Zeng An (Alliance Steward) to switch the alliance factions. Make sure you choose the same personal faction as your Alliance to make the transition into this update easier for you.
- Alliance of Qin League: You can recruit players from Qin League, Heaven’s Children and the Mysticism factions.
- Alliance of Heaven’s Children: You can recruit players from Qin League and Heaven’s Children factions.
- Alliance of the Mysticism: You can recruit players from Qin League and the Mysticism factions.
After a future update, some Alliance Events require the alliance to join a faction to participate.
An alliance’s maximum level is 10 and it requires alliance experience to level up. Alliance members can obtain alliance experience by completing alliance quests (the progress for these quests are refreshed every Thursday at 6 AM server time), you can also gain alliance experience by completing alliance events.
Upgrade time reference:
- It takes up to two years for a lone wolf player to upgrade an alliance to maximum level from scratch.
