The Guild Island is one of two types of player-made islands, the other being a Player Island
PvP is not enabled on a Guild Island
A guild may only have one Guild Island
Travel to the Guild Island is free as long as the player is in the same city the island is located in
Guild islands may be purchased from the island merchant in any of the main cities
Players do not need to have Premium to purchase a guild island
Players may own both a Guild Island and a Player Island at the same time
Once an island is purchased, it is retained regardless of Premium status until it is abandoned
Guild Islands have the same layout; the only difference between islands will be the type of buildings a player places on the island
Islands may be upgraded for Silver to Tier 6. Each upgrade takes two minutes to complete
To upgrade an island, players should visit the island merchant located in the main cities
Guild Islands may support up to Tier 8 buildings
Players do not need to clear out trees, rocks, etc on an island in order to build. The plot will clear automatically when the build spot is unlocked
To build structures on your island right click your portrait in the top left side of the screen and click build in the drop-down menu, or press H (default bind)
Unlike Player Islands, Guild Islands do not include any farming plots
Guild islands include a Marketplace and a player storage chest. The player storage chest may only be accessed if the player is in the guild.
The Market Place is localized to the Guild Island alone, meaning it is for Guild members and those who have been granted access onto the island
The Guild Island is the only island where a Guild Hall can be built. This hall functions similarly to a large house, where many chests can be stashed and laborers may be employed
Guild Islands can be moved for free to a new city after updates that significantly change the map. Everything on the island, including loot in chests will transfer to the new island location.
The below table shows the cost, not including Global Discount, of purchasing and upgrading the Guild Island. Each upgrade of a Guild Island will bring additional areas to build on the island. The initial purchase provides a Tier 1 island with a storage chest and 1 housing plot. At Tier 2, the Guild Island Market Place will become available on the island. The Guild Stadium will be available with the Tier 6 upgrade.

Players will want to decide if they want to place buildings on their island. The benefit of placing a building is the player will not pay the tax to use the structure they would in the city. However, there is no resource return to a player when using a building on an island.
Players may access the build menu by selecting H or by selecting their avatar and selecting "Build". there are four tabs to choose from:
- Economy: Lumbermill, Smelter, Tanner, Weaver, Toolmaker, Stonemason, Repair Station
- Farming: Alchemist's Lab, Cook, Mill, Butcher, Saddler, Farm, Herb Garden, Pasture, Kennel
- Military: Warrior's Forge, Mage's Tower, Hunter's Lodge
- Houses: Guild Hall (only available on Guild Island), House
If a building is unfinished and no longer needed, the player needs to complete the build and then demo. You will receive 90% of the materials in return. It is important to remember to use the "Demolish" option in the building's menu and not a Demolition Hammer otherwise materials will not be returned for any structure on the island.
In some cases, players may want to delete their island in favor of a new location. Players can delete their island by returning to the same Island Merchant used to purchase the island and choose "abandon". There is a pop-up confirmation box that a player must confirm in order to abandon an island - this action cannot be undone once you have selected to abandon the island.
Before abandoning the island, make sure to demolish all buildings, farms, etc. By doing that, you will be able to recover 90% of the materials used to construct. After 1 minute of demolition, the materials will appear in a basket that you can retrieve. It is important to remember to use the "Demolish" option in the building's menu and not a Demolition Hammer otherwise materials will not be returned for any structure on the island.
Guild Islands DO NOT retain their level if you opt to delete the island and move them. The Silver used to upgrade the Island is NOT returned to the player.
Free One-Time Island Move
Sometimes players are allowed to move their Guild Islands for free to new locations. This is a limited time feature that normally follows an update that significantly changes the map. An example of this would be the Call to Arms Update that made big changes to faction warfare and added multiple new red zones to the royal continent. Players are allowed to move their personal islands and guild islands to a new city along with everything on the island, including the items inside of their chests. The Call to Arms update allows players to move their islands between March 17, 2021 and April 17, 2021.
