    Default Winner of Build Your Guild Ship Question

    So it has been a little over a week since me and my guildies were on and saw the Global Announcements for Endless dinging Guild Levels over and over in a matter of minutes. We were surprised that we didn't see any discussion of it on the Forums and curious how a guild manages to get that much renown in such a short time.

    Maybe what you and your guildies saw was the prize being awarded? If they where not high enough level to use the ship, the winners where to be leveled up to be able to do so.

    From my OP: "...saw the Global Announcements for Endless dinging Guild Levels over and over in a matter of minutes"

    I guess no one else noticed, but we saw the announcement for 60 and then like 10/15 min later 70, then a little while later 80...

    We only play for 2-3 hours at a time, so it definitely wasn't over the course of even a whole day. We were surprised that a guild could get that much renown in so short a time and I was wondering how one would accomplish that.

    From the Build Your Guild page on DDO.com:

    ***Guilds that are not yet high enough level to purchase an awarded airship will be given a one-time guild level boost that will allow Turbine the ability to award them the airship. Following that award, the guild will continue to earn and lose renown to guild decay as normal.
    Answer is: We awarded them a one-time renown boost to get them up to level 85, which allowed us to then award them the airship. Since there is global messaging for hitting certain guild level benchmarks, the messaging went out one after another as you described (although the messaging went out one after another in a matter of seconds, they were level 85 within a minute or so of us applying the renown.) Thanks!

    Oh! Thanks so much for the answer! Since the point was to "Build Your Guild" we figured they won the ship FOR reaching 85 in such a short time LOL.

    I apologize; This is why I shouldn't write forum posts until after First Coffee.

    If you give renown, i'm assuming you can take it away too? The guild you boosted to level 100 on Sarlona still hasn't decayed to 99 yet.

    Unfortunately, the decay will cause them to lose renown until return to the level before and can not fill the slots of the ship. Decay system sucks, casual guilds are extremely penalized, do not make sense get 30 days of penalty by just logging the character.

    Honestly, that would have made more sense than the system they chose.
    But, y'know. Nothing wrong with helping out small guilds, they need the love, and it doesn't hurt anyone.

    There isnt a cap on guild renown past 100, its quite possible that they shot so far past 100 due to this mistake that, while their renown is decaying fast, they might not see it dropping a level for a month or two.

    2) "Vallaes" Melee Tank build, 2nd life Barbarian.
