    I am assuming your guild is less than 140 so wait until you gain a few levels and buy more stuff/upgrades for plat.

    Nope. Got it all, and in fact one of the member has deposited nearly 10 million plat just for fun. So what to do?

    And is also a general question to the community. What would you like to be able to do with that fund? (other than withdraw it)

    Pay-Per-Use duration extender.
    Put versions of the House K vendors on the top deck, and allow Guild members to draw upon the Guild Bank as a line of credit. Or, simply make those vendors purchasable via Guild Bank funds.
    Activate PvP on the ship for one hour, all decks, for 50k plat.

    The pawn brokers should buy from pawn brokers elsewhere and have stock?

    Ship to ship pvp battles? Entry fee is a lotto?

    Distribute to guildies?

    Make available to withdraw from the vault when it comes back....

    Pay to have services on the top deck?

    Pay to fill the topdeck with decorations?

    If I were a dev and allowed to do anything I wanted with this leftover plat/tp, the code I would want to write is:

    A guild bank. I'm not talking storage chest, I mean something more like the browser mmo Fallen Sword had, where a guild was able to purchase things (or take donations, and it cost x amount of money to bind them) and they went into a special guild chest that only things that were bound to it could be put in. Anyone in the guild could use the items, and on logoff or guild quit they auto returned to the chest so others could use if someone forgot. They could not be sold again, only trashed if they were no longer wanted. The tradeoff to shareable equipment that couldn't be stolen was that you basically removed the economic value of the item, so it wasn't also a liquidable asset storage.

    In addition to letting newer players see the nifty things out there to use, it would provide guilds incentive for a little while to grind gear (or plat in the ah case) to stock their banks. And it didn't have any effect on most people's desire to gain their own personal gear they didn't have to share, it just really helped players who came later to the game keep up with their guildmates in quests, keeping everyone happy. Shame the actual game it was in was kinda dull.

    It would be great to have some frivolous things to spend plat on - that would improve immersion. Make it so!

    Buy a GTR (Guild True Resurrection) ship elemental and start over at level one.

    But the ships and at least tp amenities, would have to function like gear does, in a 'ship bank'. And what would the benefit be for doing so? What kinda past lives can we give a guild? Extra time on the timers is pointless and kinda boring.

    Maybe it could be used to rent out the guild vendors or other vendors created that sell various things are maybe even put copies of the collectible traders on the ship somewhere. Just other things to make things more convenient.

    No opinion, so long as their is an option to see the elemental (preferably fire) burn down the ship in a blaze of reincarnation glory!!!

    On a less obsurd topic, .....

    I just looked over the listing of rooms on ddowiki. I was kinda surprised there is not a pvp room purchasable. I could see that being potentially desired. Guilds holding tournaments in a controlled(more so than public pvp) environment.

    Or, man, if they ever decide to scrap the cargo hold, turn it into a pvp area.

    Just like in The Tide Turns! They wouldn't even really have to do a new animation, just copy one. : )
